Refilled GO Cart, and Now It Won't Print


#1

I’m on an Epson 3880 and unfortunately the GO cart ran empty last night before I realized it was low. This morning, I refilled it with 70mm of GO and primed it to get all the air bubbles out. I reinstalled it into the printer, and went to print with it, but no GO is being applied to the print at all.

How do I resolve this? Thanks in advance for the help!

I recommend either doing a power clean cycle, or printing a few purge sheets from the LLK/GO channel using QTR Calibration Mode, which will help get the air out and refill the line with GO to the print head.

Hi, Dana,

Thanks for the suggestions. I started by printing 4 purge sheets as per your instructions, but that didn’t work, which left only a power cleaning cycle as an option. I had to order a new maintenance tank before doing so, however, which is why it took me so long to let you know that the power clean did the job. I am now up and running again. Thanks so much for the help, and I will keep the purge info for future reference.
