    I am printing with an FX and here is the problem. Decal has three colors black, red, and silver. Black and silver print fine but when it comes to a couple small red details the printer pauses makes a noise skips then repeats (pause, skip, noise). What results is the red details are misaligned by a lot, like 1 or 2 inches off where they should be. I have already tried rotating the image, changed the caddy, sub out the color, and turned off all bleeds/traps. I have no idea what could be the problem. Also noticed today when I try to advance the vinyl with the arrow buttons it will advance about an inch then I get a loud noise and it gets stuck. Backing up works perfect.

    Gerber Problem

    Let us know which software you are using to drive the printer, if its Flexi, then this is a known problem, try printing the image using Omega.

    Gerber

    Yes, sorry, i completely missed the part about "Also noticed today when I try to advance the vinyl with the arrow buttons it will advance about an inch then I get a loud noise and it gets stuck."

    That does sound like a hardware problem.
