Cleaning print heads on DesignJet 110 Plus

Hi,

 

We use this plotter infrequently.  The color ink cartridges and print heads are about 16 months old and still have 80% of their ink supply.  In the latest plots, the red color is coming out faint with a lot of white from the paper showing through.  Is there maintenance on the print heads or cartridges that we should be doing?

 

Thanks for your help

Hi.

Try printhead recover from front panel, do you have 3 types of recover, try one of this.

 

Printhead Recovery 1:
Hold down power and press cancel button 2 times.

Printhead Recovery 2:
Hold down power and press cancel button 2 times and resume 1 time.

Printhead Recovery 3:
Hold down power and press cancel button 2 times
and resume 2 times.

How do you clean the print heads on an hp designjet 110 plus nr, and why does the plotter kick the roll out at the end of a plot so that I have to reload the roll?

What if one color still does not work after Recovery 3?

You can soak the very bottom of the printhead is very warm water.. then blot dry with a soft cloth.  When you press down onto the cloth you should see lines of color.  If not, the printhead is either too dried up and needs to be replaced or you have ink tube issues.

If you feel my reply has assisted you in repairing your printer please press the kudos star icon on the left and mark as problem solved. Thank you!
