I have an Epson 9800 - no Ink comes out of the heads. Other then that everything seems to be working very well - including the cleaning cycles* … I can watch the ink pump through. When I go to print everything runs smoothly and the paper comes out perfectly blank.
I purchased the printer from a friend.* He had recently changed the printing head, pump assembly and dampers.* The printer was working fine except that he got tired of running cleaning cycles and decided to get a new printer and retire this one.* He put ink flush in the cartridges and ran it through the system.*The printer is in very good condition, only had the one owner who had a place for it in his studio.
I picked up the printer in Colorado and drove it to New Mexico.* When I plugged it in and tried to get it to work … nothing printed.
The printer was used with your color inks and has your cartridges in it. If I open the plug on one of the ink cartridges there is pressure. And everything is clean.
The two things I have come up with are a dead head … or an F6 fuse on the mother board. Wondering how to check these or if you have any other ideas.
