  1. Hello! Quick question. During my 2400 sublimation conversion, all of my printer lights started to blink and continue to do so. I can print from it, but the lights continue to blink. Any suggestions?

    1. Did you charge the ink? It’s an 11 minute process that primes the lines and ink head with the ink. After you fill the tanks, you turn it on and when the blinking starts, you press the “stop” button for about 5 seconds (triangle inside a circle button).

    Hi! I converted my printer already, but it is printing out very light/dull colors. I used the Hiippo ink and paper. Any suggestions?

    I have read when you convert an Epson ET printer to sublimation the ink line will clog if you do not print every couple of days. Is this true and if so can it be prevented. I really what to try sublimation but hate to have something like this happen and lose all the money invested to try this. Thank you for your help.

    1. I’ve gone without printing for up two weeks at a time and have not had a problem. I have a lot of printers so it’s not always every day that I get to use one or more of them. I have my favorites that I use a lot.

      Your nozzles can get dried and clog up but this also depends on the temperature and environment where you have the printer. To be on the safe side, you can always run a simple nozzle check (print) every few days to make sure the nozzle heads are good to go.

      I am updating the “Most common sublimation problems” post to include an easy fix to the clogged nozzle head problem. Bookmark that page so you know what do in case you ever run into that problem.

    If your printer has been used with regular ink can you switch it to sublimation ink?

    1. Yes, you just have to completely drain the regular ink out of it. Method of draining it out depends on what you have. Do you have an ecotank or workforce?

    Does the et-2400 have any sort of serviceable waste ink box/pad/cartridge?

    1. Hi Terry,
      Unfortunately, the ET-2400 printers do not have a user-replaceable waste ink pad. Only the Epson authorized service providers can replace them. See bottom of page 159 and top of 160 of the ET-2400 User Manual from Epson.
