    My CJV30-130 started dripping a blob of ink on each end of my prints every so often. I'm not sure what would be causing this issue. It's been happening for about 8 month, First it was very rare, Not it is several times per day.

    Photos attached to see the Blob, The Print Head and Capping Station which was replace about a month ago. No issue there.

    Has anyone else had this happen? Is there a fix? Something to look for?

    I would get that with my Roland. Two things would cause it. Sometimes the area around the head will pick up a tiny fiber which collects ink until it drips. Thorough cleaning cures that. Another is what the tech said were ink carts with too much pressure. Removing and inserting a couple times took care of the dripping.

    Ok, So I I cleaned everything spotless, The Capping station, around the printhead and anywhere I saw old ink build up. Went to do a Test Print and I watched closely to see what was happening. The Ink immediately pooled up in the areas circled in the photo. Looks like its is leaking out of the edge of the Printhead. Is this possible?

    Remember, This was spotless 3 minute prior to the photos wing taken. This is all WET INK.

    HELP
