We all know that different printers need to use different type ink, because when oil-based inks and water-based inks are mixed together, there may be some losses to the printhead. If this happens, how can we remedy it?

1.If the ink has just been added to the ink cartridge and has not yet entered the ink supply ink path, then you only need to replace the ink cartridge with a new one. It is best not to continue to use the cartridge after cleaning it, because it is likely that ink remains on the ink cartridge wall and bottom. It is safest to replace a new ink cartridge.

2.If the ink has entered the ink supply ink path, the entire ink path needs to be cleaned and the corresponding damper should be replaced at the same time. If it is not cleaned, the entire ink supply system needs to be replaced.

3.If the cleaning function is turned on, then the ink has entered the print head. At this time, the print head must be removed immediately, and it should be cleaned with the print head cleaning fluid to make sure the ink should be completely discharged as much as possible.

4.If the printhead of the printer is seriously blocked, find a professional technician to deal with it.
