Has anyone has maintenance problems with this printer or mutoh printers in general? porblems like the ink or print head gumming up?
Honestly I have not, I have recently started working at a sign shop, I am am the only one that works here and the previous person that worked here was in charge of taking care of it. He left on bad terms months before I got here and no one maintenanced it like it should have been. So now I am trying to do what I can to get it running again. I've searched all online and had a hard time finding information on it. So all I have to do is swab the print head with cleaning solution for a good hour?Have you been shown how to perform cleaning / maintenance by releasing the head carriage and sliding it to the left and then swabbing the heads with cleaning solution? Since your ink is already gummed, it might take an hour or so to swab it all away.
You may notice black goo has probably formed around the heads and probably not on the nozzles themselves. You could use some sort of LED flashlight or such and the mirror tray to help the difficulty to see because the black goo is on black plastic. It could take quite a while to get clean. Of course, don't grind away at nozzles.So all I have to do is swab the print head with cleaning solution for a good hour?
