How use epson l800 for sublimation ink


Hi.

There are things that you need to understand when using third party inks on CISS Ready Printers. Epson L800 is built to use inks manufactured by Epson and therefore using other inks than specified will automatically void the manufacturer's warranty on the device.

Sublimation Inks are heat sensitive inks but it can be used to most of the Epson Printers on the market. If your L800 is already running using Dye Inks now, you may need to "flush" the Tanks, Tubes and Print Nozzles to avoid ink clogging. Mixing different types of ink is the most common mistake resulting to printhead clogging and by not flushing, you may as well encounter this. If you can buy a new CISS Tanks and cartridges fitted to L800, you may also want to do so to make flushing easier. You only need to flush the nozzles if you replace the CISS Kit.

Flush using a Syringe with the tube on the part where the needle is supposed to be placed. To flush the nozzle, press the "ink" button on the printer. As the cartridges move to the center, pull the power plug to shut down the device. Remove all the cartridges to expose the nozzles. Move the cartridge holder a to the right enough not to lock it in its terminal. Put a paper towel in the base of the printer and move back the cartridge holder placing it on top of the paper towel.

Fill your syringe with cleaning solution and securely attach the other end of the tube to the nozzle. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT SPILL cleaning solution to any circuitry in the cartridge holder. Squeeze the syringe slowly to flush out the remaining inks on the printhead. 3 to 5 ml would do the flushing. Repeat the flushing to all of the nozzles. Again, be careful with the circuits.

After flushing, remove the paper towel and clean up the base of the printer.

Load your new (or flushed) CISS Kit into position.

After installation, it is necessary to conduct initial setup to rerun the ink from Tanks to tubes to cartridges and to printhead. After initial setup, a nozzle check and cleaning would also refine the quality of the print.

If you ever encounter ink-clogging on your nozzles again, the flushing will also help you do the trick unless your printhead already ran out.

I hope this helps.

Chow!

Are you using HP's genuine cartridge and paper? Both have been designed together to work, maximizing the ink flow for efficiency and reliability. If you use a third party paper or ink, you will have a problem 50% of the time. Sometime you'll get lucky. HP recommends you use the genuine stuff, not just because they want your business, but because they want your printer to work.

Ink is not visible on paper


First NEVER raise the tanks of a CISS above the height of the printer otherwise all that is going to happen is that the ink will syphon out and end up getting everywhere.

As you have not used the printer in a long time there wil be dried ink in the print heads 3x head cleaning is nowhere near good enough to clear the blockages.

One thing I would do as you have a set of OEM carts is the following presuming you have the equipment.

Drill a small hole in the top of each cart and extract as much ink as ps=ossible with a syringe (you can put it in the ciss ink tanks) and replace with head cleaning solution. Reseal the ink carts (if clean selotape will do) insert carts and do 5x head clean, leave 24hrs and do 5x head clean again. This will allow the head cleaning solution to get right insine of the print head, soften the dried ink and then flush it through..

A lot of messing about I know but you've just shelled out a few bob for a CISS so it's worth it.

NB

Make sure you keep the CISS carts above the tanks whilst outside of the printer.

Hi my epson r285 with ciss is leaving ink blotches all over my print outs, predominantly black, but less frequent with the other colours. This is only a new printer. Head cleaning, noxzzle cleaning and...


It might be caused by waste ink at bottom plate around head sprayer. For some CISS (bottle) design, ink will flow to head, and then flow to pad, when printer off. So, you must close respiratory hole at bottle when printer is not used. For cleaning, turn off printer (unplug power) when head is not in parking position. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with cleaner or hot water) at top of pad (at head cleaning mechanics). Move head to parking position. So bottom plate contact with tissue. Wait for 10 minutes, repeat 3 times. Check nozzle.

Looks like you are either using non genuine inks or have worn out the print head. Just replace the print head and use genuine ink, your print head will last longer and your colors truer. Non genuine ink is cheaper but the profit on it is huge, thats why lots of people sell it. Remember you get what you pay for.
