Are you printing that test sheet using bi direction? A good indicator is your nozzle check only prints in uni direction. If that’s not blurred or double imaged what you are seeing is bi directional alignment.
You can run a bi D alignment but the printer is set to a specific head height. This is more than likely the issue.
Hope this helps.
You had it spot on. I reset the PG using the maintenance mode. It now prints brilliantly.
However, it’s raised another issue. The carriage raises to clear the platten when printing. As this height is greater than the default setting, I assume it’s either set in the firmware to raise or the RIP instructs it to do this upon printing. Anyway, the issue I have is that when trying to run a head clean or nozzle check, the carriage doesn’t raise to do so and strikes the platten.
I can get round this by running the PG utility and manually raising the carriage height and saving it, it’s then ok to head clean etc, but prints badly.
Any thoughts? Is there a setting somewhere that needs adjusting?
