Cleaning the pump station on 9800?

I have a Epson 9800. I have cleaned printer head and flushing box.
I didn’t see anything about cleaning the square screen on left of printer in the video tutorial. I assume this is pumping station?
Should this be done as well?

I am troubleshooting some banding issues.

Many thanks!


I’m slowly diving into a backlog of un-replied questions. Hopefully my reply will be useful for someone happening upon this thread in the future.


The screen on the far left of the printer path is simply an over-flow screen when the printer is printing full bleed and over-inking the paper. You can ignore this, generally, in your maintenance.
