Few years back, I started to repair the Designjet Z2100, Z3100, Z3200 & been troubled by the failures in
color calibration & printhead alignments.
Finally I figured out an easy way to solve the problems.
Yesterday I repaired a Z3100 44" with new belt & inks & started to align printheads.
It failed about 20%, Cancelled, due to scan error.
I saw some colors were missing. So I replaced LM/LC & MK/R... still failed. See picture #1.
Then I printed a diagnostic print from my other working Z3100 & printed same from the failed
Z3100 & compare them. It indicated the pK missing color. see photo #2.
So I replaced the PK/LG printhead & perform printhead alignment. 100% successful & also
100% color calibration successful see photo #3.
I added the good print out from my other Z3100. it even had name of colors. top photo
Hope my hints benefit some of the readers for the time to come.
