    So I have been using my Mutoh VJ1624 for about a month now, and am having a problem on long run printing. I am trying to use this for car wraps and long banners over 10ft in length. The problem is at about 6-8 ft of printing I start to get bunching media in between the rollers causing the printing to get all messed up. Anything under 6ft turns out beautiful. I have turned the platen heat down from 46 degrees Celsius to 44 degrees Celsius. Any help for this newbie would be greatly appreciated.

    Problem Solved

    So after finally talking with a few people we got the problem solved. It all has to do with temperature. Once you find the right temperature for each media, problem solved. Each varies, but I think we have found some of the sweet spots for most of our current media. If you have specific temperatures you use for different media I would love to hear them.

    We find that room temperature has some to do with it. We had a large banner job last summer during a heat wave. Printed a roll during the day, loaded a roll for an overnight run and didnt notice that the ac was shut off for that zone. Came in the next morning to find 150' of mess.
