Do you have a manual? here's one for you:

trouble shooting chart here:

DTG America - Troubleshooting The DTG Kiosk

Trouble shooting light codes:

Coldesi Avance | DTG | Cams | ProSpangle | SWF Machines Support > DTG Support > DTG HM1 > Error Light Codes Your issue is the last one on the list...

When mine does this, it is usually an ink line blocking it's ability to park the head at the capping station.

Or, dirty encoder strip.

Hope this helps you,

Try cleaning the encoder strip with alcohol wipe. Should be a regular maintenance procedure anyway.

Also could be waste counter reset needed.

OK, mine did it Friday. It was caused by the capping station being in an incorrect position, I had just cleaned it and knocked it off it's center pin.

Anything that interferes with the head and the capping station can cause this. Once, I had ink build up in the capping area or wiper do it. You can try taking the carriage and moving it to the left. That way if it does not do this immediately, you get a chance to observe the failure point and get a better understanding of what parts are involved, make sense?

You could clean the encoding strip too...

Hope this helps you,

Check encoder wheels and ribbon.

Take off front cover too... sounds like your printhead asym is grinding or dragging.

I would change out capping station... You would be surprised how much this controls.

Hope this helps
