Default Head not going over ink pads

So I have been playing around with my new to me velocijet and things had been coming along pretty well until today...
I had ran it through a few charges/cleanings with the cleaning cartridges, cleaned up the capping station etc... and when I returned the regular cartridges back in I was running a few initial charges and noticed that the printhead was not going all the way over the waste ink pad and basically spraying ink out, just outside of where it should be and dumping the ink all over the platen/inside of printer.
I have wiped down the encoding strip with alcohol and it looks clean and smudge/scratch free... is there some other adjustment Im missing or sensor that I knocked out of whack while cleaning?
