    was the year went from 2006 to 2007 in the print itself !

    I can't remember his user id but there is a flexi rep on the site. You may want to pm Fred to see what it is. The rep would probably be your best bet to a quick fix.

    Yeah I've been using Flexi for several years now with no problem . . .

    Just unplugged the printer from the switch box, got [1] FULL print [6-FT], but

    the 2nd print only made it to 12% . . . I am flabbergasted ~!#$%^&*

    Why will color choice work better than my $4295.00 MSRP program ?

    I've been using it for ever with no problems,

    what makes you think it might not be the file ? . . . or the printer ?

    or the FULL MOON :help:

    Just one thought, how much space is available on your hard drive(s) as compared to last year?

    Crap, I think it's the MOON...I had this happen on a file last week, but using Wasatch! Finally had to rebuild the file a coupla times to get it to print right.

    This Particular computer is for cutting only . . . No files are stored on the

    computer with the exception of the file being cut at the moment,

    then the file is returned to it's residing computer !

    May try to rebuild the file for next year, but for now after [10FT] of wasted

    scrimm banner and several hours of kicking and screaming and tempers flaring

    I've got my [2] prints . . . Rest my Soul !

    The only thing I would suggest is harddrive space....that was a problem I had a while ago, mine got to about 90% then crapped out. It took around 5 attempts and a lot of waste to figure that out....

    Not sure still, think it's probably something in the file itself, I did get the [2]
    prints I needed finally after a lot of wasted material and time . . . What a day !

    Good Point . . . NO! . . . I will do that today, but that still wasn't the issue,
    I remember having the same problem last year with this one file . . . makes
    no sense, vector 12.5KB when rasterized by Rip in Flexi 383KB . . .
    Do much bigger prints all the time, no problems, and the previous shop owner
    created this file . . . Bottom line is I'm gonna tell the customer that next
    year he needs a new image, something more modern.

    Export the Flexi file as EPS and then import into new file... then send to RIP.

    Swap the printer cable

    Suggestion. Swap the printer cable with a known good one.

    Also, within Windows, check timeout conditions on the printer port.

    If the original file is able to be opened and parsed by Flexi, the file should be fine. Seems to be the process of RIP'ing the file that is causing the issue here.

    By the way, what version of Flexi and OS ? Any issues ripping/printing other files?
