Default Dtg hm1 no yellow nozzles showing

Hi guys
After being purged off ink and stood for a while I ink charged and started up again. Initially I only had black and blue nozzles with nothing showing on other nozzles. I did notice the red and yellow was taking forever to move up the tubes when ink charging. These are the two colours with issues.

I changed dampers. Straight away red is back. But still not one yellow nozzle showing.
What could be the cause of this. I have drawn ink through damper into syringe. And ink charged multiple times.
Has anyone had similar issues and a possible remedy.
Thanks

I have, I have a K3 Raptor. Could be several issues. I have had mis aligned capping stations cause issue, numerous times. Could be a clog in the print head. I have taken the syringe and gently pushed cleaning solution through the print head, which as worked for me. However, use extreme caution doing this. Also, put cleaning solution on a lint free cloth and gently push it on the teflon print head where the yellow ink is, which can help break up any ink. Look for build up on the edge of the print head and clean it off, if any. Print head could be bad, look for any ink that may have gotten into the cable connections. Make sure there is no clogged ink in the lines as well. Hope that helps.

Hi guys. Just an update on this and any help especially from Liam at yes would be greatly appreciated.
I changed head cable, head, dampers and capping station. Now I am getting nothing at head when nozzle checking.
Ive checked all ribbon connections on board and head. All fully in.
I have checked fuses on motherboard and all look good.
Everything is pointing at motherboard but surely I would not be able to "print" if it had blown.
It goes through the motion of a nozzle check and a print but nothing comes out.
Any help would be great as I'm lost what to do now.
Thanks guys

Sometimes on the HM1 the fuse will check out and read good but will be blown still or another component. Where are you located?

I think that your head could be clogged though, do you see movement of ink flow in the capping station while doing a head cleaning?
