    WTH Happend? This started at the end of a print while I was not watching, then did a nozzel check, anyone ever seen this before? WOW is all I can say! WEIRD! I checked the screws and its not loose, earlier I herd like a slight vibration on a few passes...but I checked the head and nothing is loose...i'm at a loss here! Any help? LOL, I'm under pressure and need to be printing!

    I have no idea but that's cool! I had a lot of problems with my Mutoh when I had it but I have never seen that.
    I'm sure Randy will chime in here with some suggestions.

    Sorry, I took time off to get married!

    This does look like a physical displacement, not that I have ever seen anything quite like this.

    Does there appear to be any pattern to this 'movement'?

    I dunno Randy, I talked to a Mutoh tech in your neck of the woods friday and he said it was the print head or the cable...the black print head has never been replaced on this machine so I went ahead and ordered a new one, hope it will be here today or tomorrow!

    He's probably correct, perhaps I am reading too much into the pics.
