Hi all. I dont claim to be a printer expert and have had over 4 years of happy printing on my Mutoh vj1614 which i purchased in good used condition. Today was the first time i had to look under the hood as my yellow nozzle checks were green and my magenta was a slight purple.
The yellow damper and pipe was geen for about a foot.
What can cause this? whats the solution?
I searched the forums and came up with possibilities that i didnt really understand, mostly pump line issues etc etc. i did multiple cleans to check ink was draining into the waste tank and poored cleaner through the capping station (i do this once a week anyway)
It appeared that the yellow line was turning more yellow so i continued printing block colour until finally all seems back to normal.
However i still dont know why this happend? or if its truly fixed, could it be a blockage in the waste pipes or problem with capping station?. My understanding is that if it a damper problem it would be air not ink migration.
