Maintenace clogs my printheads HELP!

Post by mrfoamer » Mon Feb 06, 2017 11:10 pm

Hello,

We have a Roland Soljet Pro4 XR-640... printer runs great except when I clean the printheads.

My test prints all have 0 clogged nozzles when I am doing my normal printing.... but once a week I do the maintenance and I clog about 5-10% of my nozzles in the process, then it takes 2 hours of test prints to unclog them and be able to have perfect prints again.

I am using the Roland cleaning fluid so I do not understand whats wrong.

Advice / Help please!

Are you using OEM inks?
When did you last have your captops and wipers changed?

I think you need to replace you whipers. Sounds like your wipers are clogging your heads. I would start there, since whipers are the cheapest.
