HP DesignJet 500PS mixed ink color in tubing

It seems that the wrong color ink cartridge was installed in the wrong spot and now colors are a bit off - is there a way to "clean the tubing" out?
I have purchased new print heads but don't want to install them until I know that the tubing is not the problem.

Hi

Think this should be fairly easy. If it's still printing quite happily but just th colours are off, probably means your print heads are fine. Hold onto the new ones and return to store for credit.

All you cand do to flush out the system is to keep printing. Belt out a couple of phots and it should start to come good maybe 1-2 photos maybe 5-6. But should come good.

Regards

P.S.: refer to manual that you do now have all the rite tanks in the rite place.

as it seems like it may have layed around for awhile or if a ink cartridge on certain machines dont get used much they tend to dry up the head in the jet may need cleaning but i would see if you can run it through a cleaning sesion and take out the ink cartridge and try wipe area on inkjet head and check the cartridge and see if there is any ink coming out of it at all or try replacing the ink cartridge as it may have dried up cheers

Plotter needs recalibration


You need to enter the service calibrations menu, to do this select the set up menu, once inside the set up menu press the up arrow & enter keys together. This will take you to the service tools menu, from here select service calibrations (printhead alignment and colour calibration are both in this menu). If you still here problems after you have calibrated your machine or the calibration fail replace the printheads.
