    I am running a mutoh falcon outdoor. Everything that i have tryed to print this week has been messed up. There is a pic attached of what the prints look like. But it is happening mostly on the right side of the print when facing the printer. Anyone have any idea why this is happening or how i can fix it? thank you in advance

    Hard to see, but initially looks like possible media contamination. Can you peel off a foot or two and see if it goes away? May just the outside of the roll got messed up?

    In that case I'd suspect a nozzle clog. From the console, print a nozzle check. If you see missing ones then soak the head for a bit on a cleaning cloth soaked in cleaning solution (parked on the capping station)

    Is it vertical (opposite heads) or horizontal (same direction as heads)? If it is vertical one of your heating elements are out of whack. If horizontal it looks like ink starvation (dampers)

    Is there a good source to buy heaters? That seems to be one of the things that croaks...
