    indigo 3050 troubleshooting

    as a recent member am impressed by the timely responses to the info i requested.
    i have managed to get the hp indigo 305 to get ready/standby position.now it runs for a while showing getting ready but soon goes back to standby.
    the errors it shows are:
    1. the ink has not reached conductivity level required. the conductivity level on the diagnostic toolbar are between 60-65. the machine seemingly doesn't add enough imaging agent on the ink.

    You can add a dropper or so of imaging agent (tan liquid) to the tank. What is the conductivity reading now and what color(s) seem to be the problem? When you rebuild your ink tanks the imaging agent should be added to the tanks with image oil before calibrations. What is the conductivity reading at now? We normally get a 5-10 point gain with each dropper of IA added.
