    What does the nozzle check look like? That looks to me like a bunch of deflecting nozzles that may be recoverable or the head is simply shot.

    The humidity should be closer to 50% to be in proper specs. It's worth a shot getting that under control. Also, if you are on carpet that could cause static issues. Unfortunately that issue looks like more than static to me but maybe you'll get lucky!

    We had the same problem with our magenta head and banner material in winter. The first foot or two looked good and then the magenta head would spew in everywhere. We didn't print a lot of banners, so we would put water in a spray bottle and spray the floor of the shop to raise the humidity before we would print a banner. The right way is to buy a humidifier. Nothing else works, I tried grounding the frame and a few other crazy ideas and nothing but raising the humidity worked.

    On a side note, you might stop getting zapped by the laminator in winter too...
