    Did you do a ink fill? If not, do couple of ink fills and do a test print again.
    It helped me several times in the past.

    Hi Mustafa,
    I'm going crazy, I start printing and here is the result, I think the problem comes from the clapping station, the cleaning liquid is not absorbed.

    what should I do? I really need your help!!!

    Have you pulled the print head over on maintenance area and look under neat the head?
    There may be some lint build up and may be dragging on your media or there may be enough build up that may be dripping on the media as well.
    How long ago have you changed your capping head?
    If you did a nozzle wash and filled the capping station with cleaning liquid, the liquid stays in the capping station for a nozzle wash process.
    Be more descriptive of the processes you have done so far, so I have a felling of what you have done to remedy the problem you are having.

    Hi,
    I followed all the cleaning operations, nothing works, looking at the cleaning cartridge (Fill UP Solution), I note that the date has expired.

    Although it is expired but it is still good, they don't go bad or stop functioning due to date issue. I know it from personal experience.
    When you do a nozzle wash can you fill the capping station with cleaning solution?

    I clean mine daily as well but it doesn't look like yours.
    In time you get ink splatters on the metal frame around the capping station and no matter what you do you won't be able remove them completely due to nature of solvent base ink.

    Not normal. My JV33 is nearly 4 years old. Test print is 100% perfect, granted its on its second head. The head is actually one I ripped out of an Epson desktop printer about 6 months ago. A DX5 head properly cared for and no head strikes should be able to get a 100% perfect test print for a couple of years.

    absolutely agree with sightline.. got a jv33 for 2 years now... and I replaced the printhead once... then i replace the new one for the original that came with printer and worked again... now im using the first printhead that came with the jv33, and 0 problems.

    Do following steps....

    Check under the printhead if there are any ink drops in the nozzles. If they are. Remove the right sponge of the capping station.and try again with a normal cleaning.
    Also do a pump tube wash. to check if pump is working as it's expected to.
    If not you may want to replace it.

    If i were you i'd open the cleaning area cover, and check if there is an ink lake or not, lol.
    Anyway there is a cloth or sponge that can absorb huge quantity of ink... and behind the cover, check if al pump tubes are in good condition you might be having a problem with pump absorbtion.... I mean that a tube can be broken and the pump is sucking air with low vacuum....

    you need to know how to solve it? or try to? or you did solved it?

    Attach cap top picture to check right sponge ink charge... or try taking it out...
    also you may want to clean the sides of the printhead with some paper tissue(do it very carefully , but printhead are stronger and more resistant that people think) do not brush, just put the tissue and let it absorb.

    but i think missing nozzles is because of drops in printhead..
