Default Thin white lines on mp10 prints

Hi, we have an mp10 and when we print light shirts on the medium setting, we are getting thin white lines at an equal distance through the print, looks like the table is moving about 1/2 mm too far at each print pass. Turned bi directional off and still same result, moved table up and same again, any ideas?? Fine mode gets rid of it but we shouldn't have to do that...thoughts??

How big are the prints you are doing? If you do smaller prints normal setting if fine but if you are doing larger prints I use fine.

These are really interesting because the same banding extends through multiple channels(especially picture 2) my guess in that case is smutz (a technical term) is on the wiper or is being dragged accross the face during a wipe. If there is an encoder wheel, I would clean that as well.
One thing I'm not impressed with on the M-power is that It does not seem have a nozzle check similar to the epson where-by you can tell if it's an encoder(registration error) or a problem with specific nozzles.

Default Re: Thin white lines on mp10 prints

Its nowhere near like those photos!! its very subtle, just like the table is moving SLIGHTLY too far during the print. It happens on all size prints, obviously on the small prints there is only 1 or 2 lines because its each time the table moves...

Zoom, I agree, we have an Epson for our art repro work and the nozzle checks work well.

Any ideas on these lines peoples??

What file format are You using?
I was using illustrator and having that problem, just fix it by changing format to PNG, hopefully it'll work for you as well.

If it's the table... check this printers version of the "encoder wheel". also see if there is some play when the table is engaged. Usually if it's the wheel though, i would be in one area, not a frequent, repeating beat. Use some canned air to blow out the optical sensor.

You did not say if it was all channels equally or just certain colors. If it's a RIP issue, sometimes if you change graphic formats to another type, the banding will change.

Default Re: Thin white lines on mp10 prints

ok, its not the file format, its a repeating line at uniform intervals, its on all channels but more visible when printing darker colours because of the visual contrast between the dark colour and the white line. (its not white ink either )

Alan, When you do a nozzle check, is the band on the magenta channel only?

OK. The only other thing I can think of is "starvation". If you look at the dampers and you can see them when printing, do they appear to keep full or lag behind. Perhaps you could either replace them or remove them and flush them to make sure they are not restricting the flow.
