    Yes it is on the automatic registration points. It will usually find all but the last one.

    Lick your finger and wipe off the mark just before scanning them. Also use some spray air and spray off the eye sometimes the smallest spec will make it not be able to read it.

    How large are the prints you're trying to cut? Flexi has problems with anything much larger than 30"-36".

    Do you have the latest and greatest firmware upgrade in your plotter?

    Is your Flexi 7.6v2?

    This was a chronic problem a couple of years ago and the combination of Flexi 7.6v2 and Graphtec's firmware upgrades mitigated the problem. It didn't solve it, is just mitigated it. They made the mark search are a little larger.

    Is the print loaded in the plotter as square to the registration marks as humanly possible?

    Is the media feed compensation on your printer set properly such that the print is at least close to the proper length?

    The ultimate answer is to learn to print your own registration marks and use the plotter's auto sensing mechanism or use manual marks. Flexi's auto registration leaves a lot to be desired.
