  1. Hard to tell from this images but ... if you are using standard dye inks it is caused by high TIC - total ink coverage - this the maximum amount of all inks combined that the paper can handle. The solution is to calibrate the printer using colorimeter or using dedicated ICC profile. Also check how will be by using different paper profiles - for example if you print using matt type of paper on glossy one you can have such issues. If you are using pigment inks - that is so called bronzing effect. It is mostly visible on glossy papers. The only solution is not to use this inks.
  2. Go to service tool 1. Maintenance -> Sample/Adjustment Pattern Image Print ->Nozzle Check Malfunction pattern -> Print This is extended nozzle check pattern that should show you operation of all dot sizes - I am guessing that you will have crocked line/missing dots in small and medium sizes of K. The nozzles are working OK, you just have dirt on Ph that prevent drops to be ejected properly. The other options are mechanical damage of the PH - highly unlikely but possible.
  3. That usually is caused by contamination on first section of the PH (eg K section). It's because the resting position of K when printer is idle is on first section of the capping station which is responsible for all maintenance procedures - the other tree are just for sealing and non functional. Make 3 normal cleaning cycles on K only in a row - if still missing lines perform power cleaning - wait ~ 30 min and check if still missing lines do High power cleaning - wait 15 min and do normal cleaning after - wait another 15 min and check. The other way around is to manually c
  4. There is no way to test it... not to my knowledge and without special tools at least. Has to be replaced with new one. The other possibilities that came up to my mind are ink tube joint and the usual suspect - the capping station. In fact the last part of missing same portion of same color after cleaning, leads to capping station as faulty element.
  5. Looks like decompression pump to me ...
  6. Not sure what exactly you are asking, but ... if by carousel you mean sorter unit it is designed to take and sort small sizes up to 6 inch wide papers. Anything above 6 inch will come always as you said on top of the printer.
  7. I am not familiar with D1005 - never worked on such machine - sorry. Basically you have to unlock PH and move it to center position - either trough command from software or manually. Then you will see and eventually have access to capping station and also can clean printing surface of the PH. they are people in this forum that are able to sale you or provide you with service manual pdf with will be very useful for you. i don't have anything and don't know much about that machine.
  8. In case of constantly missing nozzles on check pattern they are several thing to do before changing the PH: 1. Clean or replace capping station - this the place where Ph stays while not printing and also operate cleaning process. Cleaning must include surface and wiper. Use clean water. 2. Check and clean all cable connection to and from PH - sometimes there is dirt from ink mist on connectors that may cause problems. Use median grade alcohol ~ 70%. 3. Clean the printing surface of the PH - use water and soft material. 4. Try other ink cartridge - even OEM ones may be defe
  9. If Yellow missing at all - not a single line on check pattern - > replace Left Ink Cartridge holder - part# 1619778 If partially missing (some line are there some not) and getting worse or not recover from head cleaning - > replace Capping Unit - part#1619765
  10. More than 50 heads replaced here ... all of them had that reddish fluid one them. Sometimes is more sometime is less. Sometimes is dry sometimes is wet. Just picked up and opened one of my 10 new sealed heads that have in stock ... surprise it also has same reddish fluid marks on it. https://mega.nz/file/Dk8QQTRK#V97BxklWJd_AiwGPGE5rM6esWQ3oR28L1Vp9SvMLT4Q So it's completely normal. Official service centers doesn't have rights to sell parts to third party. Probably because of that labels are removed, so the part can not be tracked down from epson by serial number. An
  11. That’s not magenta ink. It’s conservation fluid. All heads are filled with it in order to prevent it from damage in the time of storage its all fine. don’t worry
  12. Man ... does are pretty high prices ... to be said at least. They are basically two type of paper by surface type - Glossy and Luster - the Luster is sort of shiny Matt. It's hard to explain you have to see it for yourself. DE100 uses ~ 20% less ink at best. Paper is not most important component regarding quality - just stay away from some china products on the most cheapest side. All other should be fine. And even with Chinese crap you can order costumes ICC profiles and make it look OK.
  13. Off topic - an year ago I have switch eco solvent printing service from Epson Surecolor to HP latex - it's a night and day difference regarding trouble free operation. it's like your worst nightmare is over and you week up. Also switch wide format printing from Epson to Canon iPF`s - same story. Not to mention that is cheaper in any case.
  14. There is some facts regrading DE100 VS D700/D800 etc. 1.The print head of DE100 is rated for 30 billions actuation/nozzle discharge life span - that's official data There is no official dat for DX100/D700 printhead life span - however Epson most durable industrial heads (i3200) are rated for 6 billions actuation/nozzle discharge 2.They are 6 joint connections of the tubes from cartridge to printhead on DX100/D700 - or total of 24 times the tubes are cut and connected again over the ink path. On the DE100 there is no anything like that - 4 tubes direct from cartridge to Pri
  15. 200K by design. We have two units a bit over 300K with no issues whatsoever at this point. It's possible to change only one element instead of whole printhead - non officially off course.
