Default lost 10 nozzle / clog

what should i do?

its been 3 days but the nozzle arent returning, it stays missing 10 nozzle

i can print fine, there is no effect on my print, it still looks beautiful

but im afraid this clog might became permanent, because i try to soak cleaning fluid for 3-5 hours each days, and seem have no effect
allready tried 1 power clean too and more than 3-4 head cleans before start the day, not single nozzle from 10 return

should i consider reverse flusing?

or there any other way beside removing the dampers... i had bad experience try to remove dampers lol

Can you post a picture of your nozzle check? Sounds like a reverse waterfall is in order. Is it just one white channel?

I'd suggest another power clean before diving into the printhead.

I have had seriously worse nozzle checks then that and have always resolved the issue through F3 cleanings and Power cleans. I have had a damper go bad too but if that was the issue the nozzle check would be missing an entire ink channel. Have you tried soaking the bottom of the printhead in cleaning solution overnight?

Whoever you are you need register with Tigers as complete NeoFamily. You can get advices here but if you need major component or serious issues? From beginning you said you bought from Local distributor which does not make any sense to me at all unless you are out of USA. I am happy that you own NeoFlex but please let us know who you are I hope you do not own similar NeoFlex.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

if your prints aren't suffering, don't waste a bunch of ink trying to get it perfect. i've been missing white nozzles here and there for a long time and it has no effect on my print.

when you get some down time, do a reverse flush with Simple Green and see if that helps. the more cleans you do in succession can actually make your nozzle checks worse. if one or two cleans don't get you back to printing, then bite the bullet and reverse flush. just make sure to flush cleaning fluid after the Simple Green. if you don't have any Simple Green, Windex with Ammonia will work. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL!

Good advice Sean. Windex Original, no super shine additives. Extra head cleanings can cause foaming in head and make worse, if they are done close together.

Forgot, use warm cleaning solution, not super hot say 105F or so you should be able to stick your finger in it without screaming, works wonders. Also when diluting Windex etc use distilled water. DISTILLED!
