Do you make sure to cool it down after use before switching off.

if switched off imediately after using on hot, the heat from the elements will keep increasing , causing short life of heating element and maybe the gun has a thermal trip that needs to cool down before it will switch back on. This sounds like what is happening with your machine.

shutdown instructions are in the users manual.

hope this helps

Does anyone have any pointers for me for screen printing with fabric inks?


  1. The screen frame is usually detached from the base and used alone. Usually two (2) people should work on the printing process - one holding the screen frame tightly against the fabric, and the other doing the printing.
  2. On articles like T-shirts, a piece of foamboard, cardboard or paper must be put inside each garment to act as a barrier.
  3. To improve the lubricity (slipperiness) of the ink, you may add the Transparent Base. To slow drying or to prevent screen clogging, add the Retarder Base (1-2 tbs. to 8 oz. of ink).
  4. Wash-up of screens and tools must be done immediately after use. If they are allowed to dry on your screen or tools, they are difficult or impossible to remove.
  5. After the fabric ink dries on the fabric, set a household iron at the highest dry heat (no steam) that will not scorch the fabric and with a cloth or paper between the iron and printed material, iron on each side for 3 - 5 minutes. This will make the ink withstand repeated washings.

Does not last more than 5 months.Warrenty given only 3months.If this goes on we have to switch to another brand as it destruct our works.We have used more than 10 units.Please advice.


These are probably intended to be used a maximum of 2 hours a day. What are you using them for? If you are using for paint stripping for 4 hours a day they will probably only last a couple months. The more expensive Master ones will last longer but cost a lot more. Harbor Freight tool has these at about $8 and those may last as long as the ones you are using. The motor brushes probably are the failing point. There are a couple brands that use induction motors that don't have brushes but they are less portable.

I installed a new cartridge and now only 1 page printed. It was a generic cartridge.


It's likely dried out. Print a few test/calibration pages, or try to print a few pages of heavy ink-usage. If that doesn't open the flow, you'll just need to replace it.

Clean the gold section of the print cartridge's with a wet paper towel.
Also clean the gold surfaces where the cartridge meets the printer.
Wipe the contacts clean with a dry paper towel once you get no ink back on the wet paper towels. Allow about an hour for the printer to dry.
Reinstall the cartridges and try printing.

Hope This Helps.

Hi Good day!!! if you try the head cleaning for 1 dozen of time and nothing has change, try this one method I'll give you, before you buy a new printer. all you need to have is a cleaning solution kit and a syringe.
1. remove the cartridge to expose the nozzle that feed the head
2. fill syringe with 2ml of your cleaning solution.
3. push end of tube over the nozzle that takes ink from the cartridge.
4.gently push the syringe allowing 1ml of cleaning solution to pass down the tube and into the head
5. leave the syringe in this position for couple of hours to allow the fluid to soak the dried ink particles.
6. after a couple of hours gentle push the rest of the fluid through the end
7. the next few prints may be contaminated with cleaning fluid and you are advised before carrying out any prints to do a full head clean using printer utility.
8. if after step 8 you still have a problem you can repeat the operation up to step 6, but instead of pushing the fluid through the head draw the fluid back into the syringe, and then back to the head, this causes fluid to move backward and forward in the head assembly, you should notice air bubbles and very small dried ink particles whist doing this. Please note while this product will remove stubborn dried ink particles it will not damage print head.

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.


Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.

Printer Head cleaning


I've encountered the same situation with my 925. It requires routine cleaning. Try using name brand ink if you aren't already. Cheap ink has a tendancy to dry and clog at a quicker rate. Also, be sure to turn off the printer when you are finished with it. From what I understand, when you shut it off, it caps the ink nozzles like putting the lid on a ketchup bottle.
When doing a job with lots of ink usage, use a quality paper and do a nozzle cleaning right before hand. Hope this helps.

Mp390 waste ink tank...how do I get to the ink tank pads to clean them


to fix this problem you must completelt take the machine apart becuse the resevoir is on the bottom plate. There a 2 sponges that must be cleaned and dried. Also the head cleaning station below the print head assembly must be thoroughly rinsed out. Manually rotating the gear ssembly on the left side of the machine will operate th diastolic pump that drain into the bottom--it must run free and clear. This will take about 2 hours labor total. 1 hour to take it apart--rest over night to dry then 1 - 1 1/2 hours to dry. Print tech87
