Re: Epson Adjustment Programs

I spent over $120 on P600 reset programs "guaranteed to work".

Guess how many refunds I got when they failed?

Zero.

Re: P600 Nozzle Check alpha test

I've sent this same file to other P600 owners who said it works fine for them.

Re: What will you use your DIY DTG for?

I've been in the garment business for 20 years for the same reason as ever: to meet chicks and make money.  What other business can an old dude hang out with models on photo shots in St. Martin? The making money part is secondary. You are my master. The funny thing is that it's true.  All these mop...

Re: P600 caught fire

It's definitely a risk, I agree.  I had the luck to look over 2 very high end DTG printers and it appears that some of them are completely damper less, which shocks me because the damper is the most important part of regulating ink flow.  I looked into the idea of having a dual damper system (one cl...

Re: P600 caught fire

I should mention I know that Andy is a huge fan of the pressurized ink system but so far I am not trusting it anymore.  I've just had too many problems versus my old R2880 and 4880 Epsons which both ran for years without issue and didn't have pressurized ink.  The 4880 lost channels, sure, but fixin...

Re: P600 caught fire

I've found ink flow reduction in 7 places so far, on the P600: ⋅ Ink bag male connector -- this is the blue/cyan colored connector that gets ink out of the bag and into the feeding line.  I've had about 6 of these fail over 6 months.  Note that we do print DAILY, including weekends and hol...

Re: P600 caught fire

I know of quite a few folks running R3000s and I regret not snagging a few before they were gone. I can't tell why the P600 keeps starving for ink versus the R3000s but it seems to be flow related so I wonder if something in the tube pathway is just clogging up before the dampers.

Re: P600 caught fire

Printer $639, or parts for $580 lol Plus conversion labor Was the white ink causing the clog? Always has been an issue for us with the P600s. I've had 3, none of them can handle heavy white ink. Others on TSF who do high volume prints on P600s have the same issue. I was going to update one printer ...

Re: P600 caught fire

That's possible actually. I did clean the nipples on top of the printhead earlier in the day. If that's the case do I dump everything or just a new printhead?
