Default Vertical CMYK lines...

Hi

I seem to have a new problem with the machine here. On all my prints, not just this one it seems to print these CMYK lines on both sides of the image, and they run vertical along side the image, left and right. It seems to go away after rebooting the machine a few times, but then comes back shortly afterwards again.

Do you know what this could be caused by?

Regards
Colin

Hi Colin,

Is it on all images or just one particular image? I would try cleaning your encoder strip and encoder wheel. Sometimes if these get dirty with dust on them, it can make the printer print a bit erratic. I have never seen where the printer prints random vertical lines.

I think Bobbie hit it right away. Marks like that are usually caused by a dirty or scratched encoder strip.

i think its not on the printer.. as i could see it your image is somewhat a flattened jpeg image, and im sure you worked on it through photoshop, first try to check if the border you have is having a thin or dark strip of a stroke. sometimes looking it afar would just be the edge of the working image. it shows when you print it.. try to select the whole flattened image then reduce it through the selection/modify/contract by just about a thin reduction.. then the method could solve this problem.
