    Hello, I have a Mimaki CJV30-100 and I'm having problems with the colors not printing out correctly. I'm very new to sign making starting in July sorry in advance if confuse things. My question how can I correct the colors so they print out correctly. As an example, when I just try to print a solid blue rectangle it comes out purple and red will come out maroon. test_zps0f68e07f.jpeg This is making it difficult to print out commercial logos for an event that is coming up. Another example this is what it's suppose to look like OcoeeLogo-4-c_zps5e16e7d4.jpg and this is what i'm getting in return test1_zps09c6cf7d.jpeg . Thank your help.

    Make sure your nozzles are all firing and then create a new profile.

    What are you sending to your RIP? If a bitmap is it CMYK or RGB?
    To what are your rendering intents set?

    Your first problem is all of your nozzles aren't firing correctly, that is the reason for the multi color banding. As for the color, what kind of file is it and how is it saved?, Do you have a good working profile for that material?

    +1 to your cyan head not firing correctly.
    post pictures of your nozzle/test print to confirm.

    You have major nozzle-related problems and/or media feed issues to have that banding occurring.
