Default Question on CMYK inks

Hi...long time reader, first time poster.

We've got a problem with our CMYK inks. Come in of the morning and do a nozzle check and everything shows up great. Then we start printing a shirt and the colors start out great but as the print continues the inks start banding and fading and then completely drop out. It starts with yellow then moves on to the others. What could be the cause of this?

We've done cleanings and we thought the yellow appeared to have air in the line so we used the syringe on it. White inks are printing perfectly.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Brent

Here's the pic I have of what's happening.

Bottom left is the first print. Top left is second print
Top right is third print. Bottom right is fourth print.

It gradually gets worse with each until it drops out completely .

Here's the pic of the CMYK bars I was talking about that I printed this morning after we syringed the yellow ink line yesterday afternoon.

The yellow seems to stay full and bright while the others start the banding and fading.

Brent,
I inform your post to Tigers. They will call you or you can call them.
Did you check humidity and capping station? Make sure pump works. Capping station 90%.
