    I am needing some help on doing a head soak on the VG and all I can find are videos on the VersaCamm. The biggest question I’ve got is if I am supposed to pinch the waste ink line. I am assuming so but wanted to check on here before doing so. I have ran several powerful cleans and done several manual cleans but can’t seem to get the back of the cyan to come in. Thanks for any help or tips you guys might have.

    You don't need to pinch anything, just do as you'd do with the countdown and switch off the machine by the main switch while it's counting down

    Head soak? Nope. Who told you that this is the next step??
    I don't know this printer but you need to find where hose from the cap of that color enters the pump. Take away the hose, arm yourself with syringe of 50cc and such that ink from there. Head will clean. And check your cap anyway. if you can not suck , move head to cleaning position , cover cap with towel, blow instead of sucking, once air passes then suck some cleaning fluid, then do the ink sucking.

    If you dont know what i am talking about, better call a specialist to do it. Your head looks perfect. You are going to f----k something if you dont know what you are doing

    I have used a syringe for years until I tried using a brake system Bleeder from Harbor Freight and on the very first pull it had the ink flowing perfectly.
    I find using this tool saves a great deal of time and frustration over using a syringe.

    The syringe method works in many cases but there are just so many places where it can suck air instead of ink unless you have a perfect connection!

    Just my opinion. Jim

    Just with the syringe i return each ink back again, so no loss. I will check for that tool you are saying. Thanks!
