one of our tjet 2's is having trouble printing brown colors. whenever we try to do this, we get horizontal stripes in the design (orange color). how can we resolve this?

our capping station is new and clean - printhead was changed few weeks ago as well.... encoder strip is clean and overall the machine is in a very good shape . also the ink levels are almost at the same height.

please advise.

tnx,

d

Re: horizontal striped when printing brown

Orange stripes when trying to print brown suggests that the black ink is not spraying correctly.

Double check by printing other art with brown. If it does it all the time it isn't an art issue.

Is the T-Jet an Epson based machine? If so, use the Epson print driver maintenance program to run the "Auto Nozzle Check and Cleaning" routine. I like the pattern it uses because it clearly shows clogged jets.

If you aren't getting the full black pattern, run several head cleans and try again. If it still isn't right, then you have a head issue.

Hope that helps.

I would also check your wiper and make sure its is not real worn or dirty. Sometimes they will get buildup that is hard to see.
