    Hey guys I just picked up a nice used L25500. I have been playing with it setting profiles and all that fun stuff. I just replaced the yellow/black printheads because the black was having problems. I am now getting lines like the printheads are dragging or something but I know that they aren't. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated since this is my first latex and I have only had mimaki's before.

    Are the lines the same color as the print? Green?

    if the are then it's probably a fiber that is dragging on the ink when it's still wet. You need to turn off the printer, take the head cleaning kit out. Then move the cart a bit to the left. At the right if the six heads theres another rectangular hole,,, in on of my printers fibers from the cleaning kit get stuck there. Just clean iit and you will be ready.

    Above would be my advice. I'd add get a mechanics inspection mirror. That and a flashlight will help tremendously in getting the fibers you cant see.

    Also make sure to keep your rails well oiled. Not related to the fuzz but a common l25500 issue.
