Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Encad Novajet 1000i, found out that the person who sold it to our company has used dye ink for the the refills and pigment print heads. Just recently purchased a dye refill kit for black and now having issues with pen errors, stating invalid ink type. Is the any work around to resolve this issue. I also just update the firmwire to 2.1.0 from 2.0.7 due to issues I have read about that could fix newer inks being installed due to the chipset.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Thanks for getting back to me.
Sorry this ain't a solution but it seems to be the only cash-free way to contact you. No problem not solved - though I have tried everything. Dismantled the printer; washed, dried and replaced the waste ink pads; washed the print head; blew compressed air through the print-head sponge; replaced the cartridge 3 times; printed hundreds of test prints. I can't think of anything else to do and so I think the only solution is to replace the printhead (probably not even available) or replace the printer. The latter is looking most likely.

take out all of the cartridges, and carefully inspect the mating ( chip surfaces ) for dirt-dust-debris.
This could be a sensor related issue, look carefully at the printer itself to see if theres any switches or relays, that the actual cartridge mates up with when installed.
sometimes, the cartridge just needs taking out, and simply reinserting, push firmly into it,s slot.
if non of this works, turn off the printer, and check the cabling for suspected damage wear, or connecting. i.e bent pins et,c.

I opened the printer, and pushed gently on the lever that holds/releases the print head, and this seemed to release whatever was stuck. After this the print head moved freely on turning on the printer/copier.

Check to make sure the ink is not dried on the output surface of the cartridge. If problems persist, try a non refilled cartridge to see if the problem can be reproduced there.

close to the facts:
never(!!!!) clean a brother printhead by soaking it into a solution what so ever it contains!
The printhead is a piezo one and totally diffrent from hp or canon bubblejet which heats the ink to print while the brother (and epson) ones have a bi-metal insides which "fires" ink onto paper when needed. The outward cleaning solution will destroy the bimetal and the electric inside the built-in-one printhead.
Do use only dye ink for brother printers. In fact there is a filter inside the printhead in front of the nozzels. pigmented ink has particles (which give the color to the "water" where dye ink is already "colored water" without partikles!) which definitley cloggs the filter and therefor the nozzels! The filter cant be cleaned because its part of the printhead.
The machine has a counter built in which counts the cleaning cycles of the machine. There are small clying cycles which the machine does by start printing (some 0.5 ml will be waisted) and the manual cleaning cycle started by user which needs a 3ml amount of ink.
The machine has a built in waistinktank like all inkjet printers have. The engineers of brother have set the counter to an amount of taking up cleaning ink that will last for 2.5 - 3 years in normal use (and using original ink!). When the waistinktank has taken up the max of ink the machine will display error:cleaning and refuses to print anymore. The tank has to be replaced and the error (error 46/error:cleaning) has to be deleted within the eeprom.
Run the cleaning cycle twice with original brother ink carts placed in the printer.
If you are lucky the nozzels (or filter) will be trouble free again.
If you dont see any success the printhead (or partially the filter) is clogged and has to be replaced by a new one.
Do use only (empty) original ink carts with a refill dye ink. Mix it up (:-)) with a trace of printhead cleaning solution by 1:10 for the C/Y/M colors only. You can refill an amount of 11 ml (1 ml cleaning solution + 10 ml ink) into the C/Y/M ones and an ink-only of 20 ml into the bk one.
In case the waistinktank is filled up and error sign appears search the forum here for error 46 and buy a new waistinktank as a spare part from a service dealer.
