Re: R3000 P600 Dampers instead of cartridges?

I should mention, I just posted my entire shirt business for sale on the classifieds... if you guys are looking for DTG parts, I'm selling EVERYTHING!!

I'm retired.

Look for my username on the classified, there's about 5 listings... the Epson P600 listing has a loooong list of parts at the bottom.

PM me if you wanna buy something!

Cartridge damper conversion is a MUST... using cartridges is a huge unnecessary pain in the ***... bags and dampers work great!

The printhead damper conversion is nice, but isn't really necessary... it really depends on the volume of shirts you're printing each day, month, year... the more ink, the more potential for needing a damper change. It's relative to how big your business is.

No ink flow problems. No need to adjust ink bag height. It just works.

Additional questions for those who cnange the original system to DX4 and DX7 dampers:

Do you have positive long time expirience? Is this modification better then original system (cartridges + fabric dampers) ?

Do you have problems with ink flow, and need to adjust the Ciss bottles Height?

Thank you in advance

Re: R3000 P600 Dampers instead of cartridges?

Are the DX6 and DX7 dampers quite the same for the damper mod on the printhead?
they look identically in the pictures,
somebody knows if there's a difference between the two?

Hello, Sometimes if you remove plastic housing then chip reader can be separate.
So,the plastic housing is on the left side of the printer with empty cartridge.

But if you decide to switch with DX7 dampers for printhead, you only have to modify the ink tube, from the ink bay assembly exit to the print head, but you still use the original ink bay.
So yes there is still an ink pressurization system in place.
is there a way to put dx7 dampers to the head connected to ink bottles with completely removing the hole ink bay? i would like to know for a P600

is there a way to completely remove the hole ink bay and plug ink bottles to dx7 dampers straight to the head ?

The Big Question I have is Does The Wet Cap Method prevent your print head from getting clogged? For example is your not going to use the printer for a couple of days.

And I'm guessing when purging the complete system, I can just install some refillable cartridges filled with cleaning solution and do am Ink Charge or a few Head Cleaning until all the ink is out of the Lines, Dampers and Print Head.

Any idea what could be wrong?

I'm no expert on this mod yet, still dealing with my own problems mentioned above...

but this is a pressurized system... you don't use a syringe to pull ink to the head... the printer will pull the ink through to the head with the INK CHARGE (or multiple "HEAD CLEANING") functions found in the Epson Adjustment Program.

If that doesn't make sense... you need to post a picture or two showing us what you're trying to do.

Re: R3000 P600 Dampers instead of cartridges?

Hello
just some picture of my set up

i have bottles to supply the ink.
On the white ink bottle i have a micro water pump for aquariums running on 5v just to mix the ink better and easier..i do this every morning for 2 minutes and is great.

I have used dampers as well and i removed the chips from the cartridges.
I have cut some white 3mm pvc just to push the chips inside in the pins..
nothing fancy but it works pretty good..

Thanks, I had that switch taped open... but I went and spliced it permanently now... still no change. :/

The error is actually this one:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0xD9 H --- Ink selector motor driving time error: Increase of changing load of ink selector (deformation of gear)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does that make sense to anyone?
The motor isn't even attached anymore... what gear?? :/

The carriage begins initializing just fine, it slides across, does it's little dance, settles down to do the blue bar "initializing" step on the touchscreen... then it errors out.

This is just killing me, i'm on my 2nd motherboard at this point because of that stupid chip resetter... one step forwards, three steps back... I really need to get this thing at least printing again, I'm about to smash it and burn down Epson offices for building all this vague crap into their equipment!! ****GRRRRR!!!****
