Default Time to pay up...

My F2000 is out of warranty now. I can get a perfect nozzle check but after about 12-14 shirts, whites are washed out and nozzle check confirms LOTS of missing “nozzles”. A medium cleaning on the whites brings the nozzles up to perfect. So, my question is...

Head cap assembly?
Duct assembly?
Print head?

All of the above?

I would look for an air leak in the white ink tubes. From my experience nozzles do no come and go.

Elevating the supply above the head often corrects the problem. Especially if you are using old lines. Residue builds up inside the tubes a reduces flow. Often, if using a bag system, a rubber band can be placed around the bag(s) increasing internal pressure and flow to the head dampeners. Probably not kosher, but does work without ant negative results.

Epson’s have cartridges that cannot be elevated. But I can see how y0ur fix would work on an anajet. Thanks anyway!

This is interesting since it looks like my white’s are “leaking” into the cartridge bay. Makes me wonder if they’re not seated tight enough.

Thanks. I’m going to try a new set of carts and see if that helps.
