Hello. Does this occur with a specific type of media or media core size?

Can media slip when loaded onto any spindles?

Is length of media roll entered when media is being loaded? is the length amount correct?

I would personally check the media and try a variant to see if the error occurs with a different brand/type of media roll.

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

They are using only one type of media: 36" plain paper. For the Media core, the hubs fit perfectly in the cores.

The media doesn't look like it's slipping.

When the error occur, when we reload the media, we select unknown length, otherwise, with a new roll they select the right lenght.

I will ask them to buy a different kind of media and test it.
