If your printheads are continuously failing before there warranty ends thers a good chance there is an air leak into the iss ( ink supply system) or tubes as they are known, the little stem caps are usually where the Iss fails after repeatdly changing heads the stemms can work loose- unfortunatly the fix will need to include tubes and for such a samll plotter I would suggest it would be cheaper to buy New plotter

Hi,

Common problem with Kodak print heads. And since you're done with the troubleshooting and is likely very familiar with the printer and its problem, definitely the print head is going bad again.

Thanks

Dead print head


the reason why the printhead is going bad is because this was a problem with the printer since it was launched since day one all tech support will do is replace the print head but if u call them and ask them to escalate the case to a manager and you need to act very irate then maybe and just maybe you should get a refund.
the printhead keep rubbing against the bottom of the carriage in this printer causing the contacts to wear off really fast and thats the problem ur facing ,it was one factory faulted printer that was launched

Hp Deskjet 1050C Plus- Print head error


It is not unheard of to have a bad print head out of the box. I suggest you remove all the print heads and clean the ribbon connectors in the carriage that connect to the print heads. Clean the connectors on the print heads also.

If that does not clear up the problem, you may have a bad trailing cable (carries all the signals to and from the print heads) or a bad carriage.

1055CM WITH BAD BLACK PRINT HEAD DISPLAY


more than likely the slot in your carriage assembly is faulty. try cleaning the contacts on the carriage assembly if that doesn't help, than more than likely you need to replace the carriage assembly and also the trailing cables. if you are going to keep this printer for awhile than you should also replace the carriage belt. if you can find a certified hp repair person, the cost should be around $500-600.

Sounds to me like your ink cartrage has gone bad.

Not understanding why there's two black ink cartridges


One tank is reserved for colour printing and the other one is for grayscale printing ( Black and white). Watch out as when you run out of ink and you keep trying to print a document with empty tank cartridge it will cause your print head to go bad. The cost of a new canon print head is the same as the cost of a new printer. Canon over priced the print head.

Bad print heads


This is a continuing problem we have with our Fargo DTC550 printer. If you remove the printhead from the printer and look at the underside you will see a nick on the head in the same area you are getting a line on your card. Fargo claims we damaged the head due to not keeping the printer clean even though we clean at every ribbon change. I believe that the damage happens when a plastic debris (from the plastic card) gets between the card and the head. You must check your card stock to make sure there is no plastic debris on them. Bottom line, you have to replace the head and at the time it costs $700 per head.

Printhead Problems


Since buying the L7780 printer for our business office two years ago, the printer has been a work horse for us. The problems I've seen online about scanning, paper jams and ink cartridge issues have been none existent. Then it was time to change the print head. The L7780 printed several pages before the print head error message appeared and the printer ceased printing. We tried all the solutions offered online including another print head and cartridges but to no avail. We were ready to buy a new printer. Then a member our team whom we dubbed “Service Tech 130” came up with the solution. Service Tech 130 simply pried the chips off both print heads with a screw driver and super glued the old chip onto the new print head. Now the printer has been working as if nothing was every wrong.
For this to work for those of you having the same problem, you would have to be in possession of the old print head that worked prior to the error. Attached is an image showing the location of the chip. Hope this works for you as it did for us.9101d4c.gif
