SP300v head problems, looking for an engineer near to Tamworth…
Where do I start!
We purchased a used printer last week from a sign shop that we found listed online, advertised as good condition, perfectly usable and just been serviced with a new head recently. Selling due to upgrade.
I’ve used printers for a couple of years but haven’t had to maintain one, I’ve been using a friends.
Upon getting the machine back here, all is not what it seemed.
Print quality awful and the machine is a mess underneath the heads.
The magenta/yellow head looks to have damage which coincides with the huge missing chunk on the test print for both colours. The black has many missing nozzles, cyan is great.
It’s had multiple head soaks and manual cleans over the past week before I discovered the head damage (initial torch wasn’t bright enough for me to see it).
So, now I’m looking for an engineer who can advise and hopefully change the yellow/magenta head and have a look at a couple of other issues I’ve found.
So basically, I think we’ve been had with this machine.
I’ve attached the test prints and image of the yellow magenta head.
Can anyone recommend an engineer local to me that may be able to help?
Thanks for reading!
