    Hey T dady...my sales rep at Sign Warehouse said they now have the parts for the 1204 .....now that they took over the Mutoh VJ 1204 series from Mutoh.

    Given that Signwarehouse is the only place that sales 1204s that is where I have been buying parts... So far they have always had everything in stock that I needed for the whole VJ line of printers... I have also bought Falcon Outdoor parts there as well.......

    im on the phone with them now.. on hold. i have called them several times and gotten NO WHERE. ive been transfered to outside sales. ive been told flat out no. and the like. hopefully this call will go better. i was under the assumption that since they are the only ones that carry the printer, they would be the place to get the parts. i tryed cmykparts.com but they only carrry older moldel parts.

    This MAY NOT WORK!!

    I have been replacing the waste tank material in my Epson 9600 printer for years with folded up paper towels.

    I then reset the on board chip with a chip resetter I got from some after market ink reseller.

    I am NOT familiar with how your particular printer is set up regarding the "sponges", but they are only there to prevent ink splashing during a pump down situation, NO?

    hope this little idea might help you.

    no they replace the waste ink tank on the 1204. rediculously stupid design to say the least. the guy as SW.com said they use maxi pads in theirs ROF. i couldnt bring myself to do it so i bought the sponges.

    As cheap as the pads are and as infrequently as they need replaced I would just buy the correct parts needed, especially while still under warranty... Just my opinion...

    If you are needing parts for your VJ printers, let me know. This would be for consumables and out of warranty customers.

    Gregory is the best place I have found. The pads for the waste pan were about $14. They are also in the printing business so they know the problems you can have and helpful to resolve them.
  13. We offer those sponges and waste trays for the VJ-1204. Once the machine is out of warranty you can, drill a hole in the tray, put a small funnel seal it with silicone, attach a tube to funnel that connects to a waste bottle and have a waste bottle instead of the waste tray (pads).
