I've got an ink line that wont fill up

Hi Guys,

I've got an ink line that wont fill up. I've pulled through ink with a syringe and the ink flowed easily. The damper and new, the capping station is new. The other line that shares the same head is filling just fine. I just can't get in in this one ink line. I'm stumped. Been at it all day and I still think its something really stupid and small that I'm missing.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Agreed, quite easy to do when changing the damper and a) manifold is a few years old and b) it was pulled off / pushed on not 100% straight.

If it is, it's a pain in the ass to change...most people resort to an engineer as it's a head out and taking it to bits job with realignment afterwards.

I'll third that. It would be good to know what printer it is though.

have you also made sure the nuts above the dampers are done up tight? NOT massive force but must be tight to maintain the seal? goodluck

Hi Guys,

I have a Roland Soljet Pro2.

Its not big job replacing a manifold on a head, its really easy. Done it a few times now. I have a manifold in stock so I'll replace that first.

Thanks for you input.

Think i would be confirming it with a vacuum check to know I was curing the correct fault
