Re: LEF-200. The white color disappears in the morning

It keeps chunks of pigment from entering the head and clogging the nozzles. Your nozzles have not dried up, they're probably starving of ink flow due to missed daily cartridge shaking lead to thickening of ink and causing flow restriction.

You can always check with a fresh white cartridge.

Next up: damper replacement.

Only use OEM parts or as it's a new printer, have it fixed under warranty. Even print heads have warranty.

Re: LEF-200. The white color disappears in the morning

Arright. Perhaps a captop replacement will fix this.

Re: ecosolmax to ecosolmax2

Why would you want to do that? MAX is perfectly good ink.

Re: BN20 metallic ink..

Nothing will happen to it.
Shake the cartridge, circulate the ink, perform a good manual cleaning before the shutdown, make sure the captop seal is clean and straight, if not, replace it (6 months is the period anyway). Leave the machine with the main switch on and you should be good.

Re: LEF-20 White color missing when print

Have you replaced your captop every 6 months religiously? If not, start with that. May be too late tho.

Re: LEF-200. The white color disappears in the morning

Are you sure the nozzles are missing? May just be transparent carrier fluid with missing white pigment. You need to shake the white cartridge gently for 10 seconds EVERY morning (including the workdays you do not use the printer) to prevent that from happening. Also, never miss the service - captops...

Re: Layering over Printed Textile Vinyl?

You need to use subli-stop type film for dyed polyester garment. It has a blocking layer to prevent the dye from bleeding through the film.

Re: Transporting vp300

Wait, I have a better one. A customer wanted to save my travel fee for service and brought the printer in in his Volvo station wagon. The ink installed and the printer laying on its back side, ink leaked everywhere in the system, including mainboard and the rest of the electronics. Trashed 100%.

Re: Layering over Printed Textile Vinyl?

You can layer Siser heat transfer vinyl. Don't know about others.
