Hi Manfred,

If the message at the top panel is 'load paper correctly' then you just need to open the printer in diagnostic mode (press and hold the Up button and Power On) and after that just change the PPR SZE CHCK setting to OFF (from the printer settings menu at the top panel). After that, restart in normal mode and you should be fine.
If the message was 'load paper' then, a simple printer restart will do it.

Hi,

What do you mean "you cannot enter diagnostic mode"? Are you following the steps described above? If the printer is one the very first models produced, then there is a chance that the diagnostic mode is triggered manually. What is the printer's serial number (pm me if you prefer).

I have the same issue. In my case, texjet plus doesn't recognize de maintenance ink tank and display the same Error 1601 and Init error 0020. I have tried with new ink tanks whit the same result.

Hi.

As previously stated, go into diagnostic mode (press and hold the Up button and Power On) and check the message on the top display. If it still says 'replace the maintenance tank' and you claim that you have already tried a new tank, then probably either the chip sensor or its harness cable are damaged and need replacement. But, there is a chance that you won't see a tank related message and instead see a cartridge message. In this case, you have to replace the respective cartridge (or just reset it).

Hello, we are in fact running into the same issue. We already were aware of the maintanance tank error (the inporter for Polyprint in the Netherlands) basically fixed it with a piece of carton pressing both the container and the contact module where the two make contact closer together. But that always worked until now. As a matter of fact, all of a sudden we are getting the 1601 and 0020 error combination. Extra anoying as our importer who services the machine is on a 3 week summer break. So any, really any help would be highly appriciated!

Hello Ausputzer,

please specify the Texjet Series printer you have.

If its TexJet plus we have to start in diagnostic mode (firmware 11.1 or latest is required). To start in diagnostic mode hold UP button pressed at lower panel while opening the printer. Reply here at the message you get on the upper panel.

Hi Polyprint,

Thanks for the quick reply. I managed to find a fix myself yesterday. I first did the diagnostic thing with the UP and Power button. At first I was using the up arrow on the right side of the power button on the top panel, but found out I had to press the UP (pink) button on the bottom panel with the table and the power button on the top panel with buttons. After I found out how to do it, I went into diagnostic mode and there were no more error codes. So I switched the machine off again, turned it on again and everything was working fine. After that I replaced the piece of carton that was pressing the maintenance tray and the sensor unit together more tight with a different piece of plastic, and that also seems to work better now.

But I definitely think this issue could of been resolved in a better way, as I read that many people have that issue, the mechanic from the importer in the Netherlands even pointed out to me that it was a well known issue with these machines. I mean this can be fixed easily, maybe print a little 3D piece to add to the tray to make it slightly thicker in the back so it fits tighter?

Anyways, until now (we have the machine running for 6-7 weeks now) we are quite happy with the machine, but we do think that colors could be brighter. We use TexJet Rip version 7. And especially on darker and colored shirts that are pre-treated, the colors of the prints are just not as vivid as we thought they could be. Based on what we saw in videos and presentations of this machine. So maybe we are doing something very wrong?

Hello Ausputzer ,

please reply with the brand of shirt you are using and if you pretreat manually or with a machine.

We suggest to try and pretreat the shirt more than usual, and use the high resolution mode with 90WD at Texjet RIP.

In order to give better and more accurate feedback we will need:

Nozzle test image, Picture when only the white layer was printed and one with the final result.

send them at [email protected]
