The Epson 3800 I was using for Piezography died so I have a new (used) Epson 3800 printer that I’m trying to set up for Piezography. As part of setting up this printer I put in a new damper unit and new ink tubes. I have a full set of Piezoflush cartridges installed in the printer and I’m trying to clear out the remaining old ink before installing the Piezography cartridges. I should note that before doing any of this I ran a nozzle check and everything looked good.
I’ve run 5 or 6 power cleans (with some pauses in-between to allow the print head to cool down) and I can see that the ink has started entering the tubes but now it isn’t moving.
I tried using the 2manuals tool to run an initial ink charge but I keep getting a communication error. I’ve contacted 2manuals about this but it seems like I should be able to do what need to do using Power Cleans. When I installed a new damper and ink tubes in my 3880 I primed that printer using just the power cleans and it worked fine.
Any ideas about what I should do next? Thanks!
