    Any ideas what could have caused this, it is a metal swing sign plate, all cleaned before print, printed fine until the last section where the black ink has bleed into the yellow and the whole finish looks like it has been ploughed. Looked like the head was dragging but was totally clean when i checked it.

    Check for a ‘hair’ hard to spot but can cause drag issues like this.

    I would agree with colin. probably picked up a hair or whatever on the last part of your printing.
    Have a really close look around the head area for a hair hanging or similar, and give it a clean.

    Have a look around the edge of the capping station and maybe give it clean, there may be some stray dried ink or hair picking up on the printhead and being dragged across.
