Hey there , I’ve manage to solved this issue by putting in the setup printhead . Where I actually used my old Designjet 500 Setup Printhead and put it into my Designjet 4000. It worked !! It only needed 4 setup printhead for all the 4 colours at the top .. where the bottom printheads I’ve attached scotch tape at the back of the printhead and put it back in. Now working perfectly fine ! Thanks 🙏🏼

Hello.

I'm glad you solved the matter. Nice job. I want to ask you. Did you put the 500 setup printheads used in the 4000?.
