Re: Bn-20 | Printhead healthy?

This is a 97% perfect test print. What you see here is a feed calibration issue for the most part and a couple of slightly deflected nozzles. There are two passes of test print there and the dominant "thicker" part in the middle is the little overlap of the two passes.

Don't worry about it.

Re: Putting BN-20 into Storage

No, it's perfectly doable: 1) Order an ESL4-CL cleaning cartridge, it needs to be this particular one with blue stripes, not the all white cleaning cartridges supplied with the printer for ink filling. Also get a fresh waste ink tank. https://www.transfertpress.fr/images/Article/roland-cartouche-net...

Re: Putting BN-20 into Storage

How long is the period?

BN-20 is not Peck compatible. It has its own service application available for service engineers only.

Re: Roland BN20 and Eco-Sol Max inks.

ESL3 (MAX) is great. This is the original ink type for the BN-20. Less maintenance needed compared to MAX3 which is a faster drying ink. MAX3 is good for bigger machines where maintenance is easier due to better access to parts.

You might want to perform head wash, yes.

Re: Performing Head wash on BN20 and no cleaning solvent is getting consumed

That's typical. The third party ink manufacturers use off standard cartridge sizes to circumvent license fees to the copyright holders.

Get a cartridge of ESL4-CL, nothing else:

Re: Bn-20 and his owner needs help. Printhead healthy?

Correct. Dampers only need replacing together with the printhead OR there’s a blockage in the damper filter causing missing nozzles when printing. Or a leak. No other situation. Do not attempt to replace them yourself, too dangerous. I have been doing this for two decades and I’m still really carefu...
