I had a fuse blow due to cleaning solution that got through to the ribbon cable shorting out the fuse and frying the ribbon cable, the print head was already clogging. I guess I kinda lied about the $1000. I had replaced the print head, ribbon cables and replaced the fuse(approx $400) but during that episode I also purchased all new ink and cleaning cartridges which added to the cost but weren't necessary for the repair but were necessary to get me back up and running. Alot of the problems were partially my fault for not being familiar with the machine when it was new but alot of what I've learned about maintaining this machine was not in any of the publications provided so I won't assume all the blame. I would like to know what Ziggy's problems are and see if we can't help him on here.

Ill be honest. I have a tjet 3. Its not worth $1000 in my opinion. But it is what it is.
Its been sitting here dormant because of a stupid error light. I tried to call Equipment zone several times and there tech support just didnt know. And most recently they started charging for tech support. Not worth it in my eyes for something they cant fix. Not to mention I think that their prices have jumped since they think they have the market cornered now that usspit has gone under.
BUt thats what business is all about right?
Now I did find a tech in Arizona that worked me through my problem in about 5 minutes time.
Karl Steele. I told him our problem (ink and error when bed loads) and he said its the 4 crews on the back of the load screw. I loosened them up and it works. pretty simple.
Yet Equip zone couldnt figure this out after several calls. Their answer was for $100 an hour, we'll send a tech to you. (6 hours each way....plus onsite time...you do the math).
So now I suggest that if you do have one of these clunkers...call the below tech:
Karl Steele
Steeletec LLC
4141 E. Raymond St. STE G2
Phoenix, AZ 85040
(480) 760-3882
[email protected]
http://www.steeletec.com/

Also his connection with parts are alot cheaper than equipment zone.
Just my 2 cents.

Good work.

If it's worth it to anyone I am starting to talk to my lawyers and the U.S. Attorney general this week so hit me up if you want to be on the class action lawsuit. I need to gather names, contact info and your problems. I am going to get everything going soon. This problem has effected my business, livelihood and future. Please contact me by visiting my website and clicking on the contact us link then submit your info so I can get back to you. Hirsch left us with NO tech support whatsoever. They knew exactly what they were getting into when they bought the company. I'm really upset and I have the time to invest in this project so if anyone wants in let me know.

You probably have a clog. When you unclog everything a nice white will show up but you have to keep printing like a mad dog otherwise you'll get a clog every 3 days.

Have you ever got a good white??? If so then degraded it could be several things. Printhead clog, clogged or restricted tubes, you still using dampers or carts. Bulk system original or modified or new. clogged breather port in the ink bottles, waste line restricted. I actually have to back my white off a bit it puts down to much.
Which software you using???
More info where did you buy it from??

No I never have had a good white...
The machine is a reconditioned one, suppose to have a new head in it.Its a Tjet Express. It came with Fast artist, making art in Corel14, transfer to Corel Paint then to Fastartist. I bought it at IMG, they sent a tech, he said black was clogged, he fixed it, but said to run it using high ink output till clog works through. I made arrangments to take the machine back down there,but I run a sports store and I cant get the time, they never called me back to see why I hadnt came to visit them. Dont think they are interested in helping me with this used machine. And it keeps blowing a fuse after about 40 prints on white ts of course the fuse blows,got this machine May like around the 24th 2010 and have replaced 5 times the fuse.

I agree with Randy you best bet is to talk to Carl, or American Screen Supply - Best Prices on Inkjet Film and DTG Products!

What wrong with it, besides T3 anyway.
Karl Steele at American Screen Supply can refurbish.
E Bay next best bet. T3 is not for the faint of heart. Or those without a large tool collection.
I have one that works fine, but I have done some work on it,
