My printer is constantly gets air clogs. I claim its air clogs because the nozzles are fixed and fires normally after running an auto nozzle check. However after sitting overnight, the first print has posterization and I run another auto nozzle check dance that clears it and prints normally.
I’ve checked the carts for air bubbles, tapping them a bit to settle any to the top, making sure they are firmly installed but the air clogs continue. I’m considering adding O-rings to the air inlet in the carts.
Dampers perhaps? I do have plans to replace the whole damper assembly but would like to know the root cause as well for self enrichment.
Last, I’ve ordered 3800 specific Magenta and Light Magenta carts but the carts I’ve received and using are labeled VM and VLM, both of which are for the 3880. They shouldn’t fit according to some reading here on the forum.
Thank you in advance
