    Trying to get a source for flush solution on our 550XT. Is the flush used on the surface on the head also? Anyone have any sources in the Southern California area?

    What about the Fujifilm? They should sell you QV017, that's the flush solution for Acuity.

    Hello. Never !!!! use flush on printheads. Flush damaged toshiba printheads. Only alcohol. Ethanol or isopropyl.

    I'm not sure where you got that info but our techs recommend flush to swab heads.
    Alcohol only to clear stubborn nozzles.
    We've been using it for years with no problems.

    During the first year of work on the OCE and the use of the original flush, I have 9 !!! damaged printheads. For 8 years of using alcohol - only 3

    Wow. Flush is supposed to be the ink carrier without pigment so not sure how that could happen.
    The manual does say to use either iso or flush.

    I seem to remember them coming out with a bulletin saying to only use alcohol on a regular basis, and flush for stubborn nozzles. I'll see if I can dig it up.

    But the manual says also, that when you use the flush for cleaning, then you have to use dry swabs to remove the flush from certain places around the nozzle plates. Flush may damage the internal gasket in the head.

    We normally clean around the edges with iso on some cheap swabs to get rid of any residue after swabbing with flush.
