Perhaps you did not see the continuation of my prior post, please read below and advise - can you shed light as to why add’l cleaning cycles seem to make my problems worse instead of better? Seems the more I ‘clean’ the more ink does not want to flow.
Thanks / Bill

Problems persist. After vac refilling all 9 carts I get the printer operating and make qty 7 13x19 prints which look fine. The machine sits idle for 24 hours and before printing I run a nozzle check - LLK is shows no trace, I perform a head cleaning cycle once and another nozzle check - now LLK, LC & VM are not printing. I try an actual image printout, terrible results.
What now? Wave the magic wand or whatever you folks do and make my system reliable. Please advise some fix other than ‘pull the carts and vac refill all of them’…this is not the answer I want to hear. I love these inks when they print but honestly this is a disappoint experience almost right out of the gates. WHY does cleaning the heads seem to worsen the situation? Please Help!
BTW, attempting to ‘bend back’ the front cover in order to view the ink tubing did not work for me - I suppose I could flex the plastic more but at that point I’d probably be nearing the breaking point of the plastic - I don’t see how one can look in that small space w/flashlight to see much of anything.
Await you reply, thanks /Bill
