atlix211 Posted January 24 Share Posted January 24 So I just converted this Epson P600 This is the second printer I killed. Well at least the printhead. (The first one has its motherboard fried) So like the first one that I have converted, it is running smoothly. All colors are showing, no clogs. Perfect nozzle check. After printing for a while on the same day, baaaam black doesn’t print anymore. What baffles me is in both the first and second printer, the whites are perfect. I have read posts saying whites are the easiest to build up and clog but I never had problem with whites. So I did head cleans, ink charges, shoe polish method, wet capping overnight and flushed the manifold first before the going for the nozzles. I even flushed the lines but no luck. The clog is solid and I can feel the pressure while trying to waterfall the printhead so I just stopped before I killed it completely. Any help would be appreciated. I’ve lost so much money trying to build a DTF printer. At this point chinese printers are pretty enticing. My L1800 from China never had a major clog 🥲 I’m attaching my prints here. As you can see the black ink is totally fine before it suddenly clogged. Don’t mind the scratches, it wasn’t there when I printed it.
