    Hi guys! Was wondering if i could get some help. I got a Mutoh 1304 here thats not printing blue, but instead printing purple. I printed blue perfectly yesterday, but today its not. Before printing today, I did a nozzle check and a normal cleaning. Then I started printing and it just didn't print blue, so I stopped it mid job and did a nozzle check. Normally the printer prints 2 test patterns per color and its missing one cyan pattern instead of the two patters. Any suggestions on what I could do? Im affraid to run the machine anymore because all ink levels are at around 50% and im missing a cyan pattern. Maybe another normal cleaning? Any help is greaty appreciated!

    thanks!

    Cap top

    Change the cap top. The pump is not pulling down ink. Try cleaning it first.

    Is it missing all of one side of cyan nozzles? Im not too familiar with mutoh but I believe yours has a dx5 head? Are there two dampers for the cyan ink? Do they both have the same amount of ink in them?
