    I Have a Mimaki JV3 130 SPII.....the ink ran out it was like he...ll trying to get it unclogged. I don't know whether I did it or not but one of the black(stick up tubes) on the head was broken. I replaced with a new one(well off an old head) Got it working...it had gotten ink on the head and where the ribbons are . I cleaned that up...now I get a blue ghost on everything. I tried to align any suggestions please!!!! Thank you All Signs

    did you get any ink on the ribbon cables?

    you dont have the blue ghost on your test print...you could try running a check pattern and see if you get the ghosting if not, that means that somewhere between the rip comp and your print head, info is being jumbled up...my suspicion if that you got ink on your ribbon cables or somewhere else in the heads wiring...also, check your encoder strip as well...

    and a check pattern is different than a test print pattern..
