I’ve been running Cone inks in my 9800 for a long time, but I’ve been a little lax on maintenance. Haven’t ever replaced any dampers, just kept it clean and I’ve been lucky. Now I have a magenta ink line that is full of air bubbles, probably more air than ink, and I noticed that my Magenta cart, near the delivery end, was full of thick gooey magenta ink that had thickened.
So I’m thinking that I should replace the dampers, wiper, capping station and flushing box. And at least replace the Magenta cart.
Am I missing anything? Should I also do a complete piezoflush? I don’t have the carts, but I have been using Piezoflush for “spot” cleaning.
Or, should I just try to Piezoflush the Magenta channel?
And if so, should I flush before replacing dampers, or after?
Thanks for any advice!
