    What cutting software are you using? I had a similar issue when I went to cut a 21' vinyl, then I realized my cutmaster plug in for corel was set for a certain length. I just had to change that length to exceed what I needed to cut and I was all set.

    Im using omega. But that's why i tried measuring the media on the plotter. Meaning it has nothing to with with the program im using. Like i load the vinyl. Press left arrow. to measure. And once its ready for cutting i press arrow down and feed it down and it stops at around 6 ft

    Bingo. I've seen this on a few new FC8000's out of the box. Roll size than polls to Cutting Master or other software plugins as around 70 inches for the length and it stops in the same place everytime.
