Can the Flushing box be accessed on the Epson 11880?


#1

Hello,
I recently purchased a Large Format Printer Cleaning Kit. By moving the print head to the cutter replacement position and unplugging the printer I can access the capping station and wiper blades for cleaning. However, the flushing box is not visible. Is it possible to unlock and slide it down to clean it? Is it possible to do this without partially dismantling the printer? Please let me know if you have any tips or a guide to cleaning the 11880.
Thank you.

It’s been a while since I’ve done this on the 11880, but, in short, the flush box can be made accessible by taking the right-side cover off and moving a small white gear in the back. It’s going to be really the only gear that is movable so you’ll know when you move it.

best,
Walker

Okay, I understand. I couldn’t tell how much needed to be removed from the field repair guide. Thank you for your help.
