According to a post I read on the Fuji 4500 printer, the printer must use distilled water and there is a hose kit that must be periodically replaced:

'
Check water level on Fuji 4500 printer keeps - icon1.gif Re: Fuji Pictrography 4500 I use to work for Fuji and actually repaired these. The price is about right. It is worth between 2000 and 3000. The 4500 is the last of the PG's and no longer made. They are very reliable and phone support is free. You will not get a live person for phone support and they will call you back. (Eventually). If it breaks...Good luck getting a tech to repair your machine UNLESS you register the machine and get an account set up. Even if you do that GOOD luck getting a tech for repairs. You are not a Walmart and you are on the bottom of the list. You need donor and reciever to make prints (expensive material)
Make sure the laser is calibrated. As far a maintaince, just change the hose kit on the maintaince cycle and use the recommended water. ( I believe it uses distilled water only.
Did I say parts for repair are EXPENSIVE !!!! Did I say a Service Repair tech is EXPENSIVE !! Did I say not all techs know how to fix these in the field or on the phone
Why use Old techology and no warranty.
I would go with the ASK 4000 for 2500 at B and H. The PG 4500 IS BIG !!!' --- I hope this post helps!

    Hi,

    I have a Fuji 4500 and a Fuji 4000 early model. I up graded and now using the 4500 because I am using a PC. The check water level warning keeps coming up. I changed water and I have been using distiled water. The water pumps thru the printer and drains when the power is off. I ever changed the water bottle senser and still shows this error. Is there another senser that detects this condition/ What else wolud you suggest? Please reply ASAP.

    Thanks!

    Bill

Hi Bill.

Disconnect power, empty water, and check for clogs or blockage in the water supply hose running from the water bottle. If that does not fi the problem you may need to replace the water cartridge or the sensor. In that case you will need to contact Fuji at the number listed on manual, to arrange repair or to get the parts.

    Hi,

    I have turned power off and restarted it. Refilled water tank and changed filter. The pump does pump water in the tray and dumps it when you turn the power off. I just purchace this printer and it worked a few times. I am using this printer as a moble printer in a van to do special events. I was very warm when I got the E221 error code. What are yuor thoughts?

Reset 4500 hp estimated inklevel


The best you can do is, Disconnect the power cord from back of printer ( while printer is on ) and reconnect after 30 seconds.

This should help you in displaying ink level on printer front panel and also from solution Center on your pc ( if the complete software is installed )

Basic software installation or just connected to PC will not display ink level on your PC Screen

Will start but will stay running


there are a couple things to check -- first check and drain the carburetor bowl,, there could be water and other contaminates inside that are not allowing the carburetor to perform correctly. this start and not stay running problem could also be caused by a bad ' governor ' . ----- BUT the problem may be also caused by a bad oil level/pressure safety switch,, check to make sure the oil is at the correct level and then check the switches to make sure they operating properly.

Does the Fugi Pictrography 4500 wont print


Buy distilled water from the grocery store for $1.00 and then clean out the water tank and refill to the fill line. Change the water filter every 6 months (according to the manual). Clean out the water hoses by ramming soapy chopsticks through them and then forcing some water through them.

ANy solution to the lack of fuji drivers for new macs and OS?


4500N can't be recognize with an Intel Mac, because the Appletalk doesn't work. My solution to print: I've got a powerPC as an interface between Imac intel and fuji network adapter. The pictro driver is installed on both machines. On The Intel, The Appletalk is connected on Airport. On the PowerPc, The Appletalk is connected on Ethernet. Ethernet cable between powerPC and pictro network adapter. SCSI2 cable between PNA and the 4500. Of course, auto calibrating + eye-one color calibrating. WELL!! it works.
