    See attached photos. Printhead was just replaced end of January/beginning of February. Only have printed on adhesive vinyl and printable heat transfer vinyl. Just started doing this. Any thoughts on what could be causing this? Just replaced cap top. Cleaned under printhead using coffee filter thinking there could be dust underneath it. At a loss right now

    How old is the maintenance station? Can you use a syringe and push ink freely through both pump tubes? To get to the top of these 2 tubes and do this, you have to remove the fixture that holds the cap top. If you can push cleaning fluid freely, then check the "air" tube that's under the cap top. Make sure it is connected. And, make sure that you can push air through it easily? Lastly, make sure that the 2 drain tubes under the cap top are not plugged up.

    Maintenance station was replaced in March. I can get ink through the lines and air line is attached.

    Who replaced the print head? Move the carriage to the middle of the platen. Put the head on the high setting. Does the head look like it is sitting level in the carriage? Is it at the same level as the 2 ramps on the sides?

    SOLVED!!! I must've had a head strike because my print head was not sitting level in the carriage, the backend was up. I took it out and set it back in and that fixed it!! Printing like it was before!
