Question Getting my HM1 back online

Hi, all-

I have a DTG HM1 that has been sitting for about 8 years that I want to start using again.

Unfortunately, the printer wasn't mothballed, it was just turned off, so I'm sure I'll be replacing some parts.

I'm guessing the print head and lots of tubing.

The printer has very few prints on it and I'm hoping that everything electronic and mechanical will work without any issues.

So, my questions:
1. What am I likely to need to replace? Print head, tubing? Anything else?

2. How much has the software changed since 2008? Is there a new version? How do I go about getting a copy?

3. Dongles. Did the HM1 come with one? Or the software, I guess?

4. What have I missed in the last 8 years? Is ink any cheaper? (Sorry for the open-ended question.)

Thanks in advance for your input and......it's great to be back!

Good luck and I hope you get it running without too much trouble. We made the original platens for that unit. We still maintain that platen base in stock so the full range of platens are available for your printer if needed.
You will need to order through ColDesi, 2-3 days drop ship to CA.
