How to Debug the Newly Installed Print Head of Inkjet Printers?

You may encounter problems such as the inability of newly installed print head, sometimes are not caused by the quality of the print head itself. The following are some of the issues that should be noticed in newly installed sprinkler heads. Hope to be helpful to you.

1. When installing high-precision inkjet printer heads, you must remove the sealin accordance with the instructions. But do not remove other sealsat will, otherwise the ink will leak;

2. Whenever installing a new high-precision inkjet printer print head, it is generally necessary to clean the print head 3-5 times;

3. When any high-precision inkjet printer head is ink-free or unmounted, the high-precision inkjet printer will not work even if other print heads contain ink;

4. Once the new high-precision inkjet printer print headis settled, it is best not to remove it before replacing the print head;

5. Unless you want to replace the high-precision inkjet printer print head, do not open the print headprotection clip, otherwise the print headmay not be used again;

6. Do not stick your hand into a high-precision inkjet printer or touch-head when working with a high-precision inkjet printer;

First check that you have run out of a certain color of ink inside the cartridge, and then consider the following reasons:

1. Follow the instructions to remove the label. The air duct and the air guide hole are still in a closed state. The air can not enter the print head. Then the label can be completely torn off.

2. Small bubbles remain in the orifice. At this time, the print head should be cleaned so that small bubbles can be discharged.

3. There are impurities in the air into the air or in the print head. The solution is to start the printer automatic cleaning program to clean the print head one or more times. Or turn off the printer and stop using it for a few hours. See if the situation has improved. If you cannot solve the problem, it is suggested to be repaired.

4. There is a relationship between the print line and the print mode selected by the user. If use the ink-saving method to print, the output screen is rough and has lines. If use 360DPI printing method to print, the output screen is more smooth. It usually use 720DPI print mode for color image printing. In order to better effect, you can use 1440DPI print mode. The quality of the output graphic is related to its own resolution. The higher the resolution, the better the graphic quality of the output. This shows that the graphic output is not only related to the print headof the high-precision inkjet printer, but also closely related to the graphic itself and the print settings.

5. There is a little white line, which may be caused by long-term printing and the use of some paper with poor paper quality. There are paper particles on the surface of the paper, and the particles may adhere to the print head. Then it results in cause a part of the ink hole plugging.At this time, print cleaning should be performed. If there is no effect, send to the maintenance department for maintenance.

Attentions When Using the Print Head for A Long Time

I once read a sentence and deeply agree that “Any product in the world is irreplaceable”. Of course, print head is the irreplaceable small product. The user’s operating method and basic maintenance in use are also important factors that affect the long-term use of printer’s print head.

1.”illegal” operation

We should try to avoid the following situations:
1.Bad habits in daily work.
2.A sudden power failure during printing caused the print head not to return to normal position.
3.One-sided pursuit of speed during the printing process pulls paper.
4.Open the front cover during printing and do harm to the print head, such as pulling paper, wiping parts, etc.
5.Try to change the position of the parts when the power is on. For example, forcibly pull the carriage from the maintenance cartridge.
6.For convenience, move the device while the printer is working.

2.Empty print head

In daily work, due to long hours, a lot of work, or negligence on the status of the printer, the ink in the ink cartridge runs out but the printer is still working, causing the ink in the print head to become empty, and such situations will directly cause color cast.

3.”illegal” maintenance

Mainly for the maintenance of the print head, the important thing to mention here is the precautions in the process of cleaning the print head: similar situations will directly cause color cast. It is best to use a lint-free cloth that won’t break or leave the fibers on the surface of the orifice when it gets wet, causing a blockage. Clean the print head must not touch the actual nozzle, only touch the edge, to avoid blockage of the print head due to impurities. Do not clean the print head with alcohol or other corrosive liquids. Because it will make your print head more serious.

4.Long idle

Because the ink used in the printer has the characteristics of quick-drying, in order to prevent the nozzle portion of the print head from being idle, the concentration of the ink is increased due to prolonged exposure to air, and the phenomenon of “plugging” such as air drying is caused. If your printer is not used for a long period of time, it is recommended that you turn it on once a week. This allows the printer to self-test once a week, to ensure the normal use of your machine.

5.Medium influence

There are some physical damages to the print head. The effect of the media on the print head is physical damage. It is often overlooked by everyone. In fact, the type, thickness, and quality of the paper have a direct impact on the print head. Over-thick print media that is too rough can cause head wear. Dust-filled media can cause print head to clog during printing. The quality of the paper is not good. The edges of the paper are curled during the printing process. The print head moves up and down and the nozzle holes on the bottom of the print head cause damage to the print head. Without sending normal prints.

After reading this, I believe that you have understood how to solve the problems when using the printer head for a long time. Our company offer many types of print heads such as Epson DX5, DX7, 5113, TFP print head and so on in a very affordable price. If you have any demand or any questions about sublimation printing, please feel free to contact us.
