HP Scitex FB 500/700/550/750 BAD ink

Over the last few years, the HP FB250 & FB794 inks have been causing print quality issues on Flatbed printers: over-spray, missing nozzles, clogged printheads and ink starvation. Where it might look like a printhead replacement is needed, it is actually a BAD INK PROBLEM!

You can prove this simply by following this  3-step process:
1) Print the “Prime Bar Test” on smooth media (such as foamboard).

(System>tools>service printer>print test>Prime Bar Test)

2) Compare the test to the photos below:


3) Solution: replace the ink with Bordeaux Plasma ink, empty the heads and refill it 3 times to assure you have fresh ink in the system. Test again and you’ll be surprised to see that the nozzles have recovered!
