Are you sure you're printing on the correct side of the film?
LOL Yes, great question though... rough side up, with curved corner at top right...Are you sure you're printing on the correct side of the film?
Yes, thanks Brent - I sent him a long descriptive email in regards to the problem - the owner spoke with him originally - he tried walking him through a quite a few things with the old printer to try to resolve some probs and it sounded like he knew his stuff. When we got the refurbed printer it came with some sample prints (color photos, etc.) but that don't mean a hill of beans in this industry - I need some good clean film brother!! LOL Will keep you posted. Thanks again!Well give him a call when you think he's awake! Describe the problem and see if he has a solution, whether it's you tweaking something or biting the bullet and shipping it back to him for repair. I'd bet my biscuits it's an issue with the mechanics of the printer itself, because it sounds like you've exhausted every other possibility. These things are old, they can have problems. Give him a call and post back with what he says, I wanna know if it gets resolved.
No we haven't - the reason mainly is because we have been using the same film for years and we have not had probs with it... I am willing to try anything at this point tho.Have you tried different film? I recently got dome waterprof film for my 4800, but it works excellent in the 3000. Black, but not overly thick and it wont run or smudge.
I rec'd an email from the guy who sold us the refurbed unit and coincidentally he suggested the same thing - the only problem is, the boss man is saying that that particular film is twice as expensive as the film we are currently using - my question to you is: Were you using another type of film (possibly the Ulano USA "C" DIJF4356CM-100 ?) is it a "Dye Inkjet Film"? and did you experience smudging (Meaning after letting it dry even overnight, it rubs off VERY easily - winds up on the screens too! OH BOY LOL) I am also wanting him to look into us possibly getting just 1 or 2 sheets from the manufacturer just to test it before we spend all that money on something that will not fix the problem. Somewhere I had heard that Epson stopped making "Dye" type of inks a few years back and this is actually a different type of ink now... And lastly, what is the manaufacturer/part number of the waterproof film you are recommending? Thanks so much for your timeHave you tried different film?

Hmmmm... There are tons of options for printing out like:I'll save you some headaches.... just print to photo glossy film and leave everything else alone. Hit print. Done.
