      Randya the guru. Need you help again. Getting lots of wiping blade errors. Is that an easy replacement or leave it to the professionals?

      TIA

      You can just unlatch it and move it away, or put it in maintenance mode.

      Randya,

      Thanks for your advice about my VJ 1304 head wash. For me to uncap the head, do I need to remove the right cover, or put the machine in maintenance mode?

      Thanks again,
      Brian

      Not sure,
      Could be a connection that it is not seeing that keeps it from booting up.
      Could be corrupt firmware.
      You might call Mutoh Customer Care and as them, I will be at SGIA all week.

      Hi Randya,
      Wondering if you have any advice on the following:

      I had some blocked heads in the black only. I removed the heads and flushed the heads with some cleaning solution. When I put the heads back in it kept saying Error Head Cable. I replaced the print Head Cables.

      At first I was getting an Err Head Heat but fixed this by reversing the print head cable. The machine now goes through full initialization at start, and have done a series of head cleans but now when I print... no ink comes out of the print heads at all. When I do the nozzle check no ink prints on any of the colours.
      I can confirm that there is ink in the print heads also.

      Also, best to add that I have checked the dampers which seem ok and can physically see the ink sucking through the lines when I do a Head Clean.

      Not sure if it is still a printhead issue or a main board issue?

      Any feedback or advice would be great. Thanks

      I am not really sure, the Toucan LT is made in Japan, the 65 is made in Europe.
      The 65 will be more like a Rockhopper 3 and Falcon Outdoor II.
      They should use the same heads, and probably many parts will interchange, but I dont know which ones.

      Hi Randya,
      i think so
      connections of
      the power supply or LCD tape cable maybe.
      i just find a
      GSU + GSU AM
      Rockhopper II series printers – Maintenance Manual
      it look like its almost the same as Toucan LT so i now have some part #s
      i have taken this printer down to frame and learned that head one and head six cables was not connected two broken sensores on the take up back side.
      do you know anyone who fixes Mutoh boards?
      Kind Regards
      Johan

      HI Randya,
      I have a question to ask. i got a new print head after the earlier disaster, and the head is fine no errors. the fuse was blown, so today i replaced the f2 fuse as well. but i forgot (grave mistake) to connect all the connectors as there was a phone call. thinking that everything was well i started the machine. only to be greeted by wiper sns error. My question is, can that have caused any other problem? like a fuse blown? was heart broken and came off, will try doing it tomorrow morning, but only after reading your reply.
