Eddie, Powell, or anyone else who has an answer, I've got two 1270's. One is fine; but the other is behaving very strangely. It stopped a while ago with all lights flashing. Following the previous advice on-list, I cleaned and lubed the rod, pressed both buttons while switching on and then holding the cleaning button in for 10 secs. That has returned the printer back to normal but for one slight thing; no ink comes out of the head during printing!! It moves over the paper properly where the printing should be, so it's clearly getting all the image info, but nothing is coming out of the head while printing. I've removed the pizza-wheel plate and can see that ink is coming out of the head during a cleaning cycle, and I can see the vacuum pump pull the ink down into the tank. The tank has hardly any ink in it and the pads are mostly clean and dry to the touch (the printer has not been used much), so it can't possibly have stopped for a full waste tank. So if ink can be squirted out during a cleaning cycle, why not while printing? Is there any other magic sequence of buttons that switches on the print head for printing? Any ideas gratefully received. Bob Frost. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
