Default Buying a Used Kornit Breeze - need advice (have video of nozzle check and white ink print)

I need some advice. I am thinking about buying a used Kornit Breeze. The seller says there is an issue with the white print heads, because it has just been left to sit for a couple of months.

I have attached a video of the nozzle check and a video of a white ink print on a dark t-shirt. The seller says there seems to be slight streaks/banding on the white.

Nozzle Check Video - nozzletest1
White Ink Test Video - whitetest1

Do you think that new white print heads are needed? Or can it be resolved another way?

When I go to view this printer in person, what sort of things should I be checking before buying?

Many Thanks

There is a possibility that you can recover the missing nozzles in the white by flushing the print heads with warm water or flushing fluid. You really won't know until you try though, or until the current owner tries. It is possible that you may not recover the white heads, and you will need to purchase 2 new ones. For the most part though, the color test looks good and the prints look okay.

You can also try cleaning the print heads with an ultrasonic cleaner, if you do not want to spend the money on 2 new heads. It is a 50/50 chance you will succeed with the recovery, so be prepared.
