The last time I had a clog I sprayed Windex classic on the print side of the print head and dropped a few drops on the Nib... I waited a day... The clog went away without having to use the syringe.

Ok, I finally got a little print action. I was unable to pull ink thru the capping station, not sure why so I used a syringe to push the cleaning solution thru the head. I hooked the tubing to each of the ports on the head and used very light pressure to push the fluid thru. After which I was able to print yellow and red. No blue or black. So I repeated the flushing again and did get some blue, still no black, not even a little, However the cleaning solution flows freely the head with the syringe.
Damaged head or a communication error?

Kenny,

Try spraying some solution on the face of the print head and let it sit for some time. You may need to loosen it up before using the syringe.

Default Paper Sensor Problem

Hey everybody. I'm a new member. I wasn't sure exactly where to go with my question. I know this thread is all about ink problems, but I just built a C88+ dtg that looks a lot like the pictures posted here (I didn't keep the black rollers on the front, I did keep the black sponge bar below the ink cartridges, and my platen is a little different).

When I try to print, the ink light does blink that I'm low on ink (espon manager says it's the cyan), but I think my main problem is with the paper sensor. I can't find any really good suggestions about it. I have extended it with a piece of sturdy felt tape (sounds weird, but seems to do the job). I just can't get it to line up where it will register there's paper. At first I tried just covering it up, but then I was getting "paper jam" sometimes and "no paper" others. Now with the extension, I press print, the print carriage comes for a second, and then it just feeds through about 3 times the length of my drawer and says there's no paper. It doesn't seem to matter how much the platen is touching the sensor.

I hope this is a pretty standard setup issue. I've heard this can be a very tricky part, but I don't think the way I'm doing it is ever going to work. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I can post pics later if you want.

Happy printing!
