    Two questions....

    1. I am printing a 4x8 banner, and about halfway through the print job, i look at the banner and realize there are several decent size drops of ink on the banner...what could be causing this? before I printed, I performed a thorough cleaning, and then ran the general head cleaning all groups.
    ?????????

    2. not really a pressing issue, but after loading media, i "setup sheet" and the head passes over the media, then comes back with a way off measurement example-i loaded 63" media, and it says it is 72.5...what would cause this?

    A piece of banner fuzz stuck to the head is most likely causing the ink drops.
     
  3. Left pinchwheel is probably not the LEFT-MOST pinchwheel

    Make sure that the left pinchwheel that you are using is REALLY the left-most pinchwheel (with the reflective stripe)

    I've made this mistake more than once... 30" media reads 54"...doh!

    I agree, its actually called spitting. Sometimes even though not recommended you have to rub VERY gently the head.

    normally cause for ink drops are the pumps not sucking the waist away completely and or the wipers poor condition.
    the fact that you had just cleaned it is also a pointer to this.
