Hi Dana,

Will the Adjustment Program be needed if only removing and reinstalling the same print head?

Also in your opinion, after replacing the print head with a new one, is the Adjustment Program absolutely needed?

In the Repair Manual/Field Guide on pg.161 it states

Whenever the PRINT HEAD is replaced,
the corresponding adjustments must be carried out.
See Chapter 5 “ADJUSTMENT” (p190)

I believe this only applies if you’ve actually[B] replaced[/B] the print head.
If you have simply taken it out and put the same one back in, then I do not believe you need to run the adjustment. The adjustment actually resets the counter of the print head, which you wouldn’t want to do with the same print head.

Thanks…That’s how I read it too.
