I have just purchased a used texjet (from 2011), as you can imagine I'm having teething issues. I noticed someone on one of your threads stating they get the 'no mnt tank' message, i also get this message pretty much from start up until i press the green light ready to print. normal?

First of all, the seller flushed all the ink out for transportation, so now i have it here i have done about 6 power cleans (expensive) and about the same head cleans to get the ink back through the pipes, iv done nozzle checks and seem to have decent black, cyan, magenta, but the yellow and white seem non existent. Any advice or is it just a case of keep power cleaning and head cleaning until a decent nozzle check prints out?

Secondly, Since doing all that and the daily maintenance, i am getting a error message on display saying 'set ink crtg' so i tried resetting the chips and 2 of the chips wouldn't reset no matter how long i tried, so i have ordered 2 new chips, hopefully that will fix the issue? any thoughts? I cant do anything on the printer at all because of this error, not even daily maintenance clean and its been 3 or 4 days now, which is worrying me...

Apologies but lastly, i have created my own platen for the printer, fits fine but obviously due to the above problem i haven't been able to test it, my problem, i am trying to create a platen immanently in the rip software (texjetrip, from devstudio i believe) do you know how to save platens like the ones already on the software, i have already created it in coral draw but no idea how to save it as a useable platen.

Sorry for the bombarding message, i thank you in advance for your time.

Regards

Adam

Thanks jgabby,

Some helpful advice...The lines have already been flushed exactly how you say, but some of the parts you mentioned i don't even know what or where they in the printer..Looks like i have a lot to learn, FAST!
