Designjet T520 printing black lines across image

HP Recommended
Designjet T520
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

fine black lines are left across the image as ink is laid down. How can I prevent this. They are about an inch apart and interfer with grid lines.

Hello.
Your plotter need a good maintenance. You must contact a technician or maybe need replace the print head.
I hope helps.

The printer is only 4 months old and has only been used about 5 times as we can`t get an engineer to come out and callibrate it for us. If I thought it needed new parts it would be going back and be replaced by an Epsom but thanks for advice.

Ok. But I think that you check the zone down print head. This is dirty maybe.

It is more likely that from the Print driver, you are printing in Fast or Draft mode.

Change your setting to Normal or Best, Run a PH alignment from the maintenance menu and reprint.

 

Also, if you use 24lb coated vs. Plain media your prints will also look better.

 

Good Luck,
