VS-540 Black Nozzles problem.

Post by AlexC » Mon Aug 21, 2017 4:44 pm

Hi guys,

having problem with a Vs-540. The Black nozzles was showing a small sign of missing dots. Wanted to sort it out doing a 'Choke Cleaning"
Everything went bad, the black Nozzles got worst man.
See pictures ..

I've replace the dampers but very little changes.

What need to be done in this case??

Yours,

There is no choke cleaning in user menu for a reason. It's VERY dangerous to the head.

As a last measure to get nozzles going. Looks like a pigment buildup. Which inks are you running?

I have a case that looks exactly like yours and I haven't gotten it fixed by any cheap solution.
