First post here. I just got a 4000 last week, which I've been told after I bought it, was lying idle for around six months. I had been told that it was only idle a couple of weeks beforehand. So suspicion arose. Three of the inks were too low to do a power clean, so I've had to buy those, and have run one power clean procedure. After this, the printer did a nozzle check and printed out the blocks, as per usual, and then printed out the first actual prints. The day after, as I attempted to print out the same B&W test print on my pack of Hahnemuhle papers, all I got was a dozen damn nozzle checks, some of them perfect, some not. When it continued to print, and then finished, I took it that it was now clean, or else it would continue to print them.
I did have a look at the Spectraflow link, however, this is as far as I got...
2. Press down on the cutter and move the carriage to the left
When I open the top window, I look at the head assembly and see a green plastic tab with an arrow pointing left, sticking out from within the assembly. There is nothing I can see that can move. Pressing down on this did not allow anything move, left or anywhere, and I certainly was not going to force anything. So I haven't been able to try this method and see if this works.
I want to try everything I can before running another power clean and blasting away another €45 of ink.
Have I missed something very elementary and simple, or is there a secret Masonic procedure I must follow? :-)
