Nozzle drop out whilst printing
As per title we are getting ever so slight (1or 2 nozzles dropping out) when printing a few meters every now and again. To stop this being a 1000 word post I’ll keep it brief
Roland VS 540 – Eco sol max 3
All nozzles on head are fine, even if you do a test print immediately after the drop out
Cleaned everyday- no lumps of old ink on the wiper blade
Warm, no drafts, no media rippling, no head strikes.
Software (versaworks) is up to date
Calibration is spot on for each media type.
Dampeners were replaced few months back but I would of thought it would be much more than this.
No hair or dust near the head.
Seems to be magenta only. Had to give up printing some red background boards that were 3m as by the end it look like cord jeans.
Today it was on the grey, but not the navy or bright green of the print, just a small section of grey and we must be talking 1 or 2 nozzles.
Option to suggestions before it gets worse or I leave it printing a big run over night to find it fit for the bin in the morning.
As soon as it stops printing that job everything is there. It doesn’t even pump ink into the dampners or clean itself. Everything is the same except I have cancelled the print. It’s bizarre.
