I purchased a DTG Kiosk about a year and a half ago and am now (or was) on my 4th print head. The black always stops printing.
I can be printing beautiful shirts and the black will start to slowly fade. I can stop and do a head cleaning and still end up with gray or nothing instead of black. Thanks in advance for anyones help.

I'd say replace everything in the ink delivery system. That includes the bottle, ink lines, valves (if you got them), capping station, wiper blade,etc. Relatively cheap to replace compared to a print head and will help you in the long run.

I would suggest replacing your capping assembly (capping station, pump, wipers). The assembly is a wear part and we do suggest replacing it once a year as a maintenance item.

I just cleaned the lines and replaced the valve on the black and the blue but I guess my real question is "Why only the Black"

Thanks Rick
