    Hello
    I'm having an over spray issue with my SC-545EX Print and Cut machine.
    I did a cleaning then a head cleaning and the issue is still there. So then I cleaned the encoder strip and did an environmental match and still had the issue. I then did a powerful clean on all heads and is had problems. Attached is a picture of the print with the over spray problem and a few test prints I did off the front of the machine.
    I hope I don't have a head going out!!!
    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks
    Kevin

    Your black head is badly scratched, and is the head height set to HIGH...lower the height.

    I have the head height at medium on the printer. Do I need to adjust it on the front of the printer in the Menu?
     
  4. It is that your black head has got many of the nozzles clogged and a a result the black ink is deflecting when it comes out of the nozzles. This then creates and overspray look to the print.

    Options, do a maximum head clean, which may help the situation, but I suspect the clogging is too bad. The other option is to change the head, which is what I had to do as I could not clean up my head enough to give prints I was satisfied with.

    The head change could cost you as much as $1200 for a tech to come and fit it. If you do go the DIY route, remember to set the correct voltage for the new head. (it is a long string of characters normally on the box).

    Hop this is of some help.
