water, water everywhere....

2017, február 22 - 17:44
new EU still causing me troubles... But at least, no longer getting the "cooling down" errors thankfully...

but the warm weather and rain the last few days, has brought humidity back into the fold...and 4 times in the last 2 weeks, iv'e got "water collection fault". which is REALLY odd.

So i go check the hose. Hose EMPTY. UNTIL, i either open the one-way valve by hand or remove it. at which point, water GUSHES from the hose. like its vapor locked... I think I mentioned this in another post, that it didn't seem right from day one. You can hear air escaping. I don't remember that from the old one.

just bad valve?

pressure gone wonky?

Densities climbing/ color going haywire

2017, február 22 - 04:49
I've been running an L5-28 + coat (circa 2007 I think) for about 4 years. (former Harris, Heidelberg, MAN-Roland, Mitsu guy). When I first got to this shop, they were having all kinds of problems, as this was their first "big" press. (28" 'Big' ha-ha) Any way, we got all of the major problems sorted out, and life was good for a couple of years. This past month I've had all kinds of problems holding color. In the morning (press cold) I have to push a lot of ink. By mid day I am cutting ink and upping water. Always been, that's OK, but now when I am several hundred sheets into a run, the colors all climb (more so Cyan & Mag) and behave erratically. Nothing has been changed as far as my consumables (ink paper fount solution etc) Dumping fountain solution seemed to help a little. I can't think of anything that has changed. Chiller is working OK. Anyone have advice or clues?

Veteran digital printer, printer forum noob

2017, február 22 - 00:12
So I searched the forums here as well as some other sites to gain some insight into our dilemma, which has to do with a brand new 8000vp (b4000 server). We were running a 7000vp with retrofittings for a 7011vp for years and we finally decided, after 11 million impressions (mainly 12x18), that it was now time to move on. Here's the problem (which actually occurred on our old 7000 from time to time) -

Calibrate, run a sample of a booklet or postcard, sample looks good. So go ahead and run the job right? Obviously, who wouldn't? Well, say the run is 500 of a 3 page document, about 100 sets into the production the colors start to shift toward magenta. At first it's subtle, and worsens as you progress. Then stop the run and recalibrate...looks good, start production....stop when the color shifts, recalibrate, rinse and repeat.

Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated.

2017, február 20 - 21:39
I need to do a 2 part ncr print job and the customer would like them numbered. How to make a mail merge where I tell it to print two of each one of the numbers. This is probably much more simple than I think just drawing a blank. I have the project all merged, just dont know how to make it do tw0 of each in a row.

Newbie ? What printer should I get?

2017, február 18 - 23:52
Hello! I own a small carpet cleaning business in vancouver washington, I am looking to do 10,000 EDDM pieces or so a month and want to buy my own printer and do it in house.

I would Prefer to do 6.5x11 but im flexible as long as its an eddm size approved. Ideally I would like to do 14pt or 16pt.

What printer would work well for me that wouldn't cost a fortune ? lol
Also do you know what it would cost me in ink to do 10k pieces roughly?

Also, where do you buy bulk size specific paper or do you?

Thank you guys so much for your help!
