"The colors crossing is more of an encoder issue. If it is not a damper issue where the colors are mixing, then it is a head issue. - my order of checking would be encoder, dampers, then head. A certified tech would not let you film him/her - just…"

"I’ll check out the dampers. I have a lead on a BN-20 head, will it work in the VS-640?"

"Thanks Eric, I wanted to make sure right cartridges in right slots. The machine has several configurations, so carts will fit in multiple slots. Your are correct. So you have a cyan and magenta mixing to make the purple and you have yellow, cyan and…"

"OK thanks! Regular colors. So, I'm not setting the "Period Cl." to anything? It does it by itself?"

"The regular wake up, clean, go back to sleep cycle is sufficient. If you have special colors - then I would replace them with cleaning cartridges. You may need a couple of normal cleans to freshen up the nozzles on your return."
