    No luck here. Still have the same problem regardless of the print media. I only use Mimaki ink. It's driving me crazy... :banghead:

    Here is my emaill, sales@metrosignsofhuntsville.com -Alan,... Email me and lets try to share what we have done to eliminate all that we have tried. tects have not helped and all that is posted on here has not worked for me either. I just replaced all the rollers, dampers,cap, and data cable to the head. After replacing the roller it cleared up, but after a few days it looks like its slowly trying to show back up.

    No one has mentioned it yet, but could the rollers use a cleaning with alcohol to remove the ink? I get them from time to time too but they are so faint...if they really bother me I clean them off carefully with a Q tip and alcohol...if that fails sometimes cleaning solution will work although be careful as it could damage the vinyl

    This isn't a static problem, your head is misfiring. Even if the test print looks OK, a misfire can still occur. It's time to replace the head that is causing the streaks.

    We had the same issue. We adjusted the head height for thicker material and forgot to set it back. Just adjust the head height to the thin position and that should take care of your problem.
