Re: vp-540 vs vs-540i

Try reinserting the black cartridge. Try another one if you have a spare.

Is the job a regular CMYK job with no WH/MT parts?

Re: vp-540 vs vs-540i

Check the INK REMAINING menu in the printer if all bars are showing something. You may have some cartridge chip (reading) issues and the printer is thinking there’s some low quality inks in the slots causing it doing extra cleaning for nozzle protection.

Re: BN-20 dripping ink when performing perf/contour cut

Correct, but not only that, it also collects ink mist from the air around the print head and once the critical mass is achieved the ink drips on the media. This is when there are random and rare drips. Frequent dripping means a physical contact.

Re: ink channel not printing

If there’s still air in the line after choke cleaning there’s something wrong in the vacuum system, a leak or a crack.

Avoid choke cleaning at all cost. If possible, don’t do it.

9 out of 10 cases it's dirt somewhere in the print carriage.

Re: Bn-20 | Printhead healthy?

Your printhead is good.

Deflections can not come from the ink mist.

Check that your wiper is fresh and is installed correctly (blade pointing to the right).

Re: Bn-20 | Printhead healthy?

I don't know what you mean by dried attachments but if you are talking about the light drops on the left edge of the nozzle plate then these looks like cleaning fluid/ink mist. Should be wet, not dry.
