"Yes it is set to clean twice a day. Weird thing is all heads are back except black. IT has some deflections. Even the cyan which has had 1 clogged bar for months has come back. I just have to get the back black and I will be good to go... Thanks for…"

"I had this problem, but recently I opened the main board + the servo board sitting above it, removed all the wiring and cleaned the MB + the servo board with isopropyl alcohol. This has eliminated the problem. Also I have cut the ends of the data…"

"That's what mine was doing. Intermittent, random, always a new or different print error. I changed the head cables, the 3 long data cables, and now I am changing the mainboard. VP-540/540i are crap. They all do this."

"OK I will post, thanks. I think there are 2 things going on. 1- Bad mainboard 2- Inks are really old. Date on carts is 2013 and 2014."

"You can change inks and soak for weeks, those nozzles won't move. If you post a new nozzle test and it can be compared to the old one - then maybe some advice. Hard to give advice on what you are see and all else are imagining."

"OK so now, I soaked the heads for 3 days. After I cleaned up, and did a test print. The 2 passes of the test print are slightly out of line. I printed a colour swatch that had some small writing on it and it is blurry to the point it is unreadable.…"

"none of what you ask is the issue, you start messing with dampers and a whole other set of issues. A head is rated for 6 bil shots -ur machine had multiple head changes. I am home in a few days and will check ur pec. I think u are chasing a ghost."

Zip Zap replied to Zip Zap's discussion Test Print Deflections For No Reason...?
"Should I run cleaner carts through to clean out the old ink from the lines before installing new inks? Or just do a powerful clean? What about dampers? Should I change them all out?"

"I found my ink cartridges date is 2014 and 2013. I have ordered some new carts. Would these old carts be a problem?"
