What issue is causing this?

I ran and print and got some serious banding.  I'm not sure what's causing it.  I'm cleaning the printheads.  


See attached photo.




Any ideas?

Media advancement problem or old printheads ?

Re: What issue is causing this?

Hello @pideas1


From the image that I see I can suggest causes:

-Printheads issue, too old PH or not cleaned. Recommendation: Clean Printheads (from FP -> menu image-quality maintenance-> clean PH), reseat and align them (from FP -> menu image-quality maintenance-> align PH) if issue persist and if finally is needed replace the affected ones

-Advance problem recommendations: Perform a substrate advance calibration (from FP -> menu image-quality maintenance-> OMAS calibration)

-Too low number of passes, recommendation: Increase number of passes

-Media not compatible with the printer. Recommendation: Use a certified media, you can find the appropriate media for your printer on the Media Solution Locator.
