      Please help me. I have a mutoh1924 machine. I installed a new damper and hood, but I fill and check the dampers and see that it is full of air bubbles.

        I suspect the maintenance station or pump is not correct and not filling the dampers

        Another recommendation : )

        Having issues trying to get a good nozzle check, but cyan is all crap. I just finished pulling the lines with syringes and the lines are not clogged but Noz check still bad on cyan. Have head resting on gauge with cleaner. Any ideas?

        Take a look at your dampers - also make sure your drain lines are running and open. I think black and cyan run together in one tube and magenta/yellow in the other. Make sure you can see ink being pulled through both when running a cleaning cycle.

      FatCat, I own a VJ 1204 and I am having problems getting ink through my lines. I just replaced my dampers and where I purchased from said I might have to pull ink through my lines with syringe. I still can’t get my ink through lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated

        I had it running.. my black started giving me issues and I got advice from a company out of Atlanta to purchase new dampers. I replaced dampers and now I can’t get ink to pull through. I have ran multiple cleanings.. nothing! I was told that if the machine is not powered on when I am pulling ink then it will not come through.The closest repair is 6 hours away and quoted me around $3500 to fix. Your thoughts???

        Patty, on a 1204 you should be able to leave the head parked on the capping station and attach your syringe to one of the drain lines - or both if you have a splitter. To my knowledge you shouldn't have to have the machine turned on with a 1204 - it has no subtanks like a 1604 or 1624 with electrical solenoids.

        Also, if pulling from just 1 drain line you MUST pinch off the other drain line with a paper clip, etc.

      I just installed one of your car graphics on some PVC for my uncle Cork. Cool print!

      I recently saw that you have experience cleaning drain lines on the mutoh. Can you go into any more detail on how to do that. My printer is currently down and I believe the drain lines to the waste tank are clogged with a thick tar like build up of ink.

      I see where you posted (long time ago) about covering up the sensor so you do not get the media slant notification, where is the sensor located, thanks. Just replaced all my media rollers and getting warning after print.

      Looked everywhere, including manual for instructions to prep our Mutoh 1204 for long term storage. Another post mentioned you'd know how to? Would love to hear your insight. Thanks.

      Hey FatCat wondering what type of file works best when sending from Illustrator to Wasatch ? I use jpeg because the color match seems to be the best, but get jagged edges on text ?
      Thanks
