The printhead from my 7800 is dead with a great leak of ink
one month earlier.
It’s an old one I have bayed “refurbished”. It run 2 years without
After time consuming to find a new DX5 and a new capping station too,
I want to know if it’s better to restart with OEM inks and converting
again after that or if I can start directly with piezo inks (methodology 3).
This is the set that is actually installed on it.
The first operation after changing head is to run a power cleaning to help the ink
run through the head and proceed to alignments.
I have the soft to initialize new head code, align it and do all the maintenance,
but I don’t want to crash it with a wrong ink choose.
Dampers are new.
I can’t do this repair before end of July.
Do you think it’s better to purge and replace inks with piezoflush
despite the printhead is broken.
Or I can let it all in place and do it when I come back?
Actually in order to maintain it in “good condition”,
I run it sometime and print a small chart. Just enough time
before it really leak the ink ( yellow channel as I see).
After that I remove the cartridge pressurization to avoid the leak
and see the content of this cartridge go to the trash…
Thank in advance for your answer.
