Hello NeoFamily

I have a big problem :

I now return to my 7 day vacation, I have completely cleaned my Neoflex.

I do 1,2,3,4 POWER CLEANNING for my color :4White/Black/bleu/red/yellow.

when i do 4 power cleanning all color is good Just 1 pipe white
not out.
My nozzle check is good.

So NEOFAMILY do you have a solution ?

Because i think :

I would probably guess that it's coming from the entrance of the cartidge

I think because my nozzle check is good

THANKS YOU

I'm a bit confused, your nozzle check is good, but there is a problem?

For starters, if you were not going to be maintenancing your machine for a week, it probably would have been a good idea to at least flush out the white ink lines beforehand.

White ink is picky. If not taken care of, it will dry and clog. Check the needles that insert into the ink cartridges, sometimes a ring of dried ink will form around them and inhibit ink flow. Check ink lines for gaps/bubbles. The point of doing power cleanings is to move ink in the lines. If power cleanings aren't working, it could very likely be the dampers. If ink is allowed to sit and not move, the dampers can clog. I would contact the TIGERS as soon as possible.

I would take the bottom of the printhead apart and use a syringe to pull ink thru the damper if the white line that isn't working. Sometimes the line can get air locked into the damper, usually a couple cleanings can work it out but not always. I bet this is the case with you.

You should be able to pick the white ring away, it'll be rubbery and come away quite easily.

I sometimes use a swab with cleaning solution too.

Resist using anymore power cleans as you'll be wasting ink that's already made a good nozzle check - use a syringe instead. Make sure the inks don't flow back into the carts while you have the print head detached from the dampers.

this is the cause right here. myself and many others have gone into great detail as to how to flush your lines. plus there are videos on YouTube from AA as well as Stitch-Up that go into great detail.

the main issue that i see is that you left distilled water in your printer. i too use distilled water initially to MOVE the ink out of the line, but this should ALWAYS be followed with cleaning solution. ALWAYS!!! distilled water alone will not keep the white ink from solidifying. plus, it's a lighter weight liquid and won't keep a good seal from cart to head. the cleaning fluid is a bit thicker, and will actually keep everything moist.

my guess is that if you do a reverse flush, you'll see that you'll have quite the restriction in your blocked channels. you can use Windex w/ammonia, or Simple Green to try to break this out. but you'll want to do a reverse flush so that you aren't pushing anything into the nozzle plate.
