3.7.2 Ink Needle Replacement (CMYK)

Tools Needed:

Ink needles can be clogged with improper maintenance or inactivity. Ink will dry within the needle resulting in bad ink flow and poor printing results. Depending on which needle you are replacing, you may need to remove the ink bay cover. 

(1) Use a small flat head screwdriver to gently push out the tube connected and gently pull on the tube to release it.

When connecting the tube back, we recommend cutting the tip of the tube since it has been stretched. Connect the tube making sure it reaches the very end of the needle.
