Default texjet stopped printing black ink

Has anyone ever had this problem?

I have a Texjet {4800 based DTG printer} which has been printing normally until today then it just stopped printing black ink. The black ink still reaches the print head and the black nozzles are not clogged. The last t-shirt printed had some black lines printed on it that were not part of the design,there was no error message .

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Gordon

Hi Thanks for getting back.
Yes I can print a nozzle check all coloured lines are good but no black. I know the black is not clogged because if I put a alcohol swab on the print head for one minute it shows a neat line of black as well as all the other colours.

Check the damper, sometimes reduced flow means you can print a good nozzle check but not print a job. If you don't get a good nozzle check it could be a fault on the ribbon cable or print head, if ink comes through when you do a head clean it must be electrical.

If this issue was not sorted already here is some info that might be useful. Ensure that ink is flowing freely from your cartridge. This means if you have a bulk system make sure there is no clogs in the air flow nozzle. If it is a sealed system just ensure there is no clog there. If all is well i would definitely check the damper (this is assuming you have ran the necessary cleaning to purge any air that has accumulated in your damper). If the damper is cracked or even past its shelf life you will need to replace it. The last thing i would check is the ribbon cables. This could cause a entire channel to not fire but is not as likely as the first two.

Hope this helps
