    I've got an Outdoor Jr. and recently replaced the the entire maint. station. But the old one had tons of Cyan ink and Black ink in puddles all over the bottom of it and it was caked on the gears of the pump and finally stripped a grear off on the shaft that drives the pump.

    Then after replacing it I notice there is Cyan ink all over the outside of the Color capping unit. Black also on the black one. The picture below shows the problem. The head does not look lined up with the Capping station. And I know there is an adjustment for that, but when the carriage assembly moves to the right toward the Capping station it contacts a little piece that sticks up and moves the capping unit up against the heads. So it doesn't appear that it can go any farther to the right.

    What's the deal??

    Kinda hate to keep dumping ink all over the new parts!!

    Did you align the capping station after you replaced the maintenance station? From the looks of things, you didn't do this.

    The machine will do this for you if you invoke the maintenance menus at power-on time and then select the proper functions. The procedure is outlined in the maintenance manual there towards the end. Do you have a maintenance manual?
