Welcome fellow Canberran I would be more than happy to help you out with either compatable
cartridges, refills or bulk ink at a very good price and advice is free.We are on Marcus Clarke St. in the
city ph 62474030 if I can be of any help.
Sorry Rob I don,t mean to use...
I believe a glue gun and a hot wax gun are the same thing they use a stick of hard wax feed
to a heated nozzle .they are very cheap to buy I got mine from a stationary store but hardware
stores and supermarkets also sell them.
I think your problem here is the tape used to seal the hole,normally when the ball bearing
is pushed in it is then replaced with another ball bearing for a good seal I think the tape you are
using is not sealing properly and allowing a flow out the head.
or alternatively, as I...
I have no problems with MIS shipping to Australia they are very helpful and well priced,
shipping has only cost about $10.00 US for a small parcel and generaly takes about
5 to 7 days and I can pay by credit card
Rob I thought 50 or so mls of ink vacuumed out was plenty, WRONG it was only when I tipped the printer on an angle that ink ran out and it was obvious I was going to have to pull it apart with my trusty 20 years + old needle nose pliers that is missing one handle pad. :)
Unfortunately I did not...
Granddad hope this photo clarifies a few things for you
The pad itself is about 2cm thick and is made from some type of wool like material kinda like a quilt. The drain posts from the over spray sponge is a very dense type of sponge, similar to the type inside a Canon cart but much denser...
the priming cycle on the printer does help but is not as strong as a priming pump
to draw ink from the sponge into the nozzles especially if the cart has been run dry
they are a clip on attachment that fits over nozzle and ink is drawn out with a syinge
they are very inexpensive but well worth...
At a guess 12 months worth of borderless printing, 3 to 4000 A4 prints worth and cleaning or deep cleaning just about every second day mostly because of the pesky light magenta cart not printing. The printer is an A3+ printer so has a bigger waste pad than an A4, so by approximation I would get...
After studying this web site for a while I thought this guy was a little contradictory
but then realized his philosophy on cart refilling is a simple one. We all go to far
in our attempts to clean heads, rejuvenate sponges etc to the point were damage is actually
done when all thats needed is...
A couple of posts ago I posed the question how many times can you reset the ink tank full message without actually doing anything and on another post attempted to use a vacuum line to empty the tank Rob thought 40 to 50 mls was quite a lot of ink to get get out. But let me tell you Rob it wasn't...
