    hi everyone
    got a good deal on the printer so hoping to get good info on things to look out for to get it running.
    printer has been in storage for 2years. heads have been replaced, ink lines flushed before shutdown.
    particularly things to check before switching on.
    i am based in the fiji islands so getting technician out here is way tooo expensive for us. help would be really really appreciated.

    thanks

    ink on the boards of the heads. when getting one of these going, there's lots of messing with the dampers and often a manifold can get a crack. if ink gets on the head, they will fry in seconds. you may run into a few "cover open" issues due to magnets lining up. you'll probably hack these magnets later so you can open the cover (or remove the cover) whenever you want. and while you are rebuilding the jv3, put a string of LEDs in the hull. having the bright light inside the printer is a must.
