    i recently bought a used mimaki jv33-130 from a company called omnicapital online. They said it was a lease that was returned. Said it was in working condition and I asked if it had been shutdown properly before being shipped to them and they said yes. I got the machine and there is still ink in the lines and dampers. I have not dealt with one of these in about 10 years, but that seems wrong. I just unpacked it and have done nothing to it besides remove the carriage cover. This machine was obviously not well taken care of in the past and I was told it has been sitting for about a month. The ink is not dry in the dampers and it is using es3 inks.
    My question is if this machine is ruined and I was lied to about it’s condition? Should I return it? Should I turn it on and try doinganything to flush the lines? Please help mefigure out my next steps. Thank you

    You should proceed "head wash" procedure before start print anything. Read user manual-maintaince procedure first. You can try remove air and recover printheads by disconnet waste tube from cappa and suck ink by syrenge slowly instead pump.
