White ink printing problem


Recommended Posts

Hello guys. So I have a problem with the white ink in my printer. When printing the color part prints fine but when it starts printing white, first it prints out watery substance aba only then prints out white which makes the prints leaky/watery. I did the shaking and syringe priming already and Did the ink charge too. The ink separates in a matter of hours. Can anyone help me?

You have to do that daily, even if you don’t use the machine. Sometimes it takes several ink charges. That’s the reason for the white ink mixing tanks and circulation on purpose built machines. 

for example, the R3000/P600 required 3 ink charges every time I used it, ( everyday) to keep the white ink from doing this after the printer was a couple months old for me. So every month or so I started manually flushing the ink system and the problem went away.  It took over 2 hours to do and over a liter of water but that’s what I had to do to be able to avoid this issue on that specific printer. 

if it’s a stock manifold, or a built in CISS those cause the worst issues. 
 

DTF superstore white ink gives me 24 hours+ before it starts to do that. So I can shake,mix, use and be fine all day. You may have bad ink, but it’s unlikely to settle that fast unless it has been neglected. 
 

What printer do you have?
