Default Magenta issues R Jet 4

Last but not least!!

Having an issue with magenta on our Rjet4 printer not printing magenta properly (comes out in stripes) there's a few missing lines on the nozzle check but the print heads are not blocked and the print head itself is in fantastic condition (no scratches at all!)

Thanks again all!

Ok I think we spoke before you purchased two second hand machines. If so I can confirm they were waiting to be serviced but the owner never had that done.

There is a lot to answer here but I can give a brief answer but the best thing to do would be call the office on Monday.


1 The fading of an image towards the bottom of a print points towards a worn out print head.

2 Lines in the magenta also point towards channels that are worn out and not firing correctly.

3 Touching the shirt or fibres happens when the base plate is warped, sounds like it has had a lot of use and might need replacing.

Hope this helps for now.

Colin

Thanks Colin!

No not me!

When you refer to base plate, is this also the print head you mean?

Appreciate the advice!

No, the plate that the t shirt goes onto can get warped, this means in the centre the shirt can brush the head which, if the shirt is pre treated will cause issues. The head will also be black after a print if this happens.

Got you mixed up sorry, I know the machines now !
