    We have a Mimaki JVC-160SP. When I do a print test, I have missing yellow bars (I tried uploading a picture but the upload keeps failing). We've tried everything in the owners manual with no luck and are currently waiting for the yellow ink cartridges to run out in hopes it will clear up the problem. Until then, if anyone has any unique suggestions, please let me know and we'll give it a try.

    Thanks,

    Todd W.

    Soaking now and will see how it worked tomorrow morning. Maybe you can help with another issue I have to work around...is there any way to have the printer ignore white? Any white color in our designs comes out beige. In order to avoid that, I have to weld through anywhere I want a white background, but would rather the printer see white and not try to print that area...any suggestions?

    that sounds like a profile issue - maybe play around with rendering intents too

    Every profile on every media does the same thing (won't ignore whites) and I have no idea what rendering indents are...? JV3

    You can also try a couple of strong cleans, see if that doesn't clear it
