I’ve viewed your tutorials on line more than a few times regarding general maintenance and cleaning of the R3000. I’ve been having the PK smear problem. In regards to that, I read in DPR’s forum of a clogged PK buffer with the R3000. The writer tried using an IJM PK cart with Piezoflush using a monotone test pattern, printing until the PK had been flushed out. He added that the printer should be left idle for at least a week, then to print to print another test pattern. I’m still experiencing the smears, although they’ve been substantially diluted by the Piezoflush. The idea is to allow the Piezoflush to dissolve the pigment until the black is gone. With that in mind, you recommended replacing the inking system with one purchased from Compass Micro. Given that I have yet to purchase a manual, Compass Micro has noted that replacing the R3000 inking system is very difficult. You’re a skilled technician with these printers; I am a klutz. Is the replacement of the inking system a task for mere mortals such as myself?
Thanks in advance, CharlieS
