    Our VJ 1604 is still on firmware version 1.09 with wasatch 6.2 RIP.
    I have heard their is a new WOW setting on the later firmware but cannot find any samples or info on it.
    I am very sceptical on upgrading the firmware as I am a firm believer that if it is not broken do not fix it.
    My question is :- is it worth attempting to upgrade the firmware or is the upgrade to the new settings not worth the effort?
    I have read on this forum of people having problems upgrading the firmware and do not want to render my machine dead!

    "Wow" is another 'wave' format.
    If you are having issues with current wave formats, then you may want to consider adding "wow", if not, you probably dont have much to gain.

    At the moment I have an issue with the cyan and when we print light blues and greens you can see a line in these colours.
    This is caused by 3 blocked nozzles on the cyan. I have adjusted the PF etc. but cannot elimate it.
    I was wondering wether the WOW effect would compensate this problem as I certainly do not want to replace a printhead for 3 blocked nozzles on one colour!
    All the others are as good as new.

    Wow!

    Sorry...

    I dont have an answer as to whether that will help or not.

    My opinion: if the 3 plugged nozzles are next to each other, I doubt that another wave will help.

    If the 3 nozzles are in the same channel (there are 4 'a' channels and 4 'b' channels), then you can print using 'Superfine and .... A" or "B".
    This will cut your speed in half as it only uses channel A or B.
    But it may let you continue printing, depending on your workload.
