Thanks for the info. So if its replacing a print head, I think I saw those listed at $5000 each, yikes. I noticed you titled your post Oce Strikes Again, do these machines need replacement parts regularly?
Thanks for the tip! I'll make sure I put it on my list of things to look out for!The color of the fluid looked like yellow ink but when it dries it's white and crusty. A real mess. Since the replacement of an ink head is $4300, I'll continue to try to clean it.
Totally agree with the excessive pricing! We are lucky we were under a pricy service contract, which we initially thought was not worth it. Now you certainly won't find me telling people it's a waste of money!The parts were exessively expensive for what they were and if they are marking up a $10 computer fan to $200 I can't imaging what the other parts really cost Oce/Canon
I've experienced this error in 460gt, I found out that the circulating pump is not working .Now the machine is working fine after replacing the parts .I came into the shop this morning and saw an error on my printer that reads Ink Heat System Error. The machine is an Oce Arizona 360XT. Has anyone had this error before, if so was it an expensive fix?
I agree, but your solution not necessarily will work in different situations - ink heat system problem error may be caused by the faulty thermistor in the printhead, faulty heater, faulty coolant pump, faulty electronic board (one of the few), lack of the coolant or leak from the coolant system and that list is not complete.It's a public forum for troubleshooting, not like he sent private DM. As long as the oce 360, and similar models, are being sold, it's highly relevant.
