I have a 7880 with half the inks with cone color and the rest with epson. The light gray went out, and after several cleanings decided to change the damper. had that done with 2 lines, light gray and llk, and yellow a couple months ago. After replacing the damper followed the instructions and did a power clean. Ran a nozzle check and had just a few strikes of each color. pretty much nothing.
So I did a couple of regular cleans, but noticed no ink is being placed on the capping station (I cleaned it before). I already cleaned the head with the paper towel method too. The thing is that before the power clean I pretty much had all the colors ok except the lk and now after several nozzle checks ended up with nothing at all.
I am thinking on replacing the capping station but I noticed it does drain the cleaning fluid I put on the cap, so I am wondering if it might be the pressure pump the one that is giving the problem. There is simply no ink going through the head, but I see no air bubbles in the lines.
Is there a way to know if I should replace the capping station first or the pressure pump?
thanks for any help. I am kind of desperate, and working about a head failure, which I can’t afford right now.
