Half & Half

  1. Has anyone ever had a situation, when your printing the full 48" and it prints lighter for the first 24" and darker for the next. Check out sample!

    This was printed on perf & banner. Stands out more on perf.

    Any help will be nice...

    thats odd.

    might be a kink etc in the cables that run along the belt from MB to head, only getting kinked once carriage is halfway out?
  3. Thanks for your reply

    So you don't think it has to do with the heads?

    I personally dont see how it could be a head problem

    That looks like a 1204 so it should be only one head... I would check with the ink tubes

    Is it dry completely across ??

    Could it be the heater isn't working on one half or are all of your other medias working fine ??
  7. Same

    tried it on banner and bars looked better, but if still lighter than last half of print.
  8. Sorry Gino

    Didn't read your post correctly. Yes dried completely across.

    It looks electrical. Check your head cables and slider cables for damage, kinks, corrosion on the connectors, bent leads and ink splatter. I doubt it is the head but there could be a deeper electrical problem happening farther in the machine such as the main board or slider board.
  10. Thanks for your replys

    It all turns out to be the cad5 wire was bad. Replaced it and printing in process.

    This forum is ridiculous...

    As always, thanks for all the help

    So you had an extra cable on hand, and swapped it out?

    Do you have other extra cables?
