Default Re: Clogged Damper

i've found that priming works the best. you don't have to pull a lot of ink, just enough to see it in your syringe. after priming, 1 or 2 head cleans does the trick. lately i have found it best to do this at the end of the day so the printer "rests" overnight. this allows the auto-maintenance to kick in and slowly get all the ink flowing. by morning, it's ready to go. i have some white jobs to print this Friday. so i'll load the white ink Thursday evening, and it will be ready to go first thing Friday morning. this eliminates the stress of me standing over my printer waiting for my nozzle checks to get right.
