I had the same issue with my Anajet sprint. But what I do is I do not leave white ink in my system, so every time I do a white ink job I suck the white ink to the print head with a syringe, then I took a break without doing a print head clean. While I was taking a break I had created droplets on the printhead, in turn the droplets created a suction on the maintenance station, which sucked two of my white inks out. So if you were using a syringe to suck inks in, make sure you do a printhead clean immediately after.

I agree that this sounds like an environmental issue. I have the old machine with the new head and firm/software. I learned early on that humidity and frequency of use had an impact of ease of use. New ink (V3)and pretreatment made things much better. I'm sure that they're working on improvements, but in my experience, there is more of an issue from the ink line to the head in the damper, than the actual lines. The damper itself is the area that needs to be improved before adding a circulation system on these machines IMHO.
..... anyway, back to the topic at hand. I would check the humidity in the print area. At my location, if I can keep my humidity level above 33-35, I can print all day long, get below and I will start to see banding. The head will dry out, especially on white and on any color that has less flow on a particular design. From looking at posts, I believe that people at higher elevations need to keep their relative humidity at a higher level. Get a hygrometer and humidifier going and keep any AC, heating, fans etc away from the printer. Above all, use good printer hygiene and things should work well for you from the printing standpoint.
