Before commencing with the ink conversion it is essential you obtain a good nozzle check
(procedure for performing nozzle check is in appendix 1.) No warranty dispute, regarding the
conversion can be supported or defended if a pre nozzle check is not supplied. If several
nozzles are permanently missing even after several cleans, you can proceed providing a
disclaimer is signed, stating the condition of the nozzle check before conversion. A copy of
the disclaimer is located in appendix 2 of this conversion procedure.
Empty the waste bottle before commencing. This is
usually located on the underside of the printer. Dispose
of the ink safely, as guided in your Mutoh user manual
(Consult your user manual if you are unsure of the waste tank)
Step 2
Next, remove each OEM cartridge one by one replacing with the
Nazdar 2100 series inkset, taking care that the colour removed is
replaced with the identical colour from the Nazdar inkset whether
this be 4 colours (Model 1204, 1304, 1604, 1608* and 1614) or 6
colour( Model 2606).
Step 3
Next, perform 3 Little Ink Charges. This will replace the OEM ink
currently within the ink lines with the newly installed Lyson 2100
inkset. Allow 3 minutes rest before performing another final Little
Ink Charge.
(Detail of this full procedure are located in appendix 1)
You need to perform a nozzle check pattern and compare it against the nozzle check
performed with the OEM inks before the ink change procedure began. If there are
nozzles missing which were present before the ink change perform a ‘powerful’ clean
(the method to perform a clean is located in the appendix 1). Again repeat the nozzle
check pattern. Repeat until nozzles are restored. If you fail to restore all the nozzles
consult your nearest Nazdar Technical support team as shown on page 2 for further
instruction and guidance.
Please refrain from removing the cartridges from the printer before
they are empty. As with the OEM, removing and replacing the
cartridges repeatedly may allow ink to leak into the printer.
Even though, you have converted over your ValueJet printer to Lyson 2100 series inkset you
must still carry out the general maintenance procedure as documented in your Mutoh user
manual. Failure to do so may cause irreparable damage to your printer.
