    Wondering if anyone knows where I can buy the 2 way valves as singles rather than a whole assembly? only need one for the cyan (please see attached photo).
    I have another thread going at the moment that this is related to but was hoping that someone might know where I can get it.
    Cheers, Brad.

    Looks like the problem you are having is mainly due to a loose connector on the 2-way valve. I often see this problem and I just dis-assemble the connector and bend the contacts for a tighter fit.

    could i bother you to let me know how you get to it? i have managed to jiggle it and get it apart with really long nose pliers but cant get to the end of the connector thats closest to the inside of the machine?

    You only need to work on the female connector, I believe that is on the side of the 2-way valve. Gently push on the lock tab of the female connector using a pointed object through the slot of its plastic housing (I use the tip of a scalpel or a cutter blade). Once the lock tab is no longer sticking out , you can slide out the female connector and bend (spread) it so when you slide it back in, it will press harder on the male pin. Push the locking tab to its original shape (sticking out) before sliding the female connector back into its plastic housing.

    turned out to be a sticky valve, It is fine when I am running it constantly, if not then I just give the back of the valve a few taps with a screwdriver handle to loosen it up. Will no doubt need to replace the valve but for now it working.
