Unhappy Printing Problems / Banding / White spots / Grainy Images

Hi everyone. I am new to the sublimation business and have had nothing but trouble in trying to get my printer to print correctly. My images have the following problems
1. Lines. Horizontal. Spaced out about 1/8th of inch. Tried printing from different computer with different profile and lines still appeared.

2. White spots. Color chart shows tons of white specks / spots in color blocks. Results in image being extremely pixelated / grainy

3. Smude marks. Primarily visible in black and transfers to substrate as well. Looks like someone rubbed fingers through wet ink before drying.

4. Color mixing. My test images print with blue spots within the yellow color; gray spots on the white color; etc. Colors seem to be blending with one another.

Happy to provide additional info / pics / etc. Desperate for answers. It's been 6 months and I can't get anywhere with this! Any and all help is MUCH appreciated.
