HP Z6200 prints shadows/ghosted

HP Recommended
HP Z6200
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all,

 

I've been faced with a gosted printout on all colours with our HP Z6200 and have no clue what else to do. These are the things we've already done without any success:

- changing PH's

- PH alignment

- scan axis calibration

- encoder strip cleaned,

- encoder sensor cleaned

- line sensor cleaned

 

Are there any other ideas???

Are there fusers on ink jet printers?  I thought that was only on laserjet printers.

 

To the OP:  Have you tried any internal prints to see if the ghosting shows up there also?  That would eliminate the file/computer/software as a potential problem.

@D Hook: thanks for you reply. Yes, it could also be seen on internal printouts like head alignment very clearly.

Would it be possible to attach a photo of a print showing the problem?  Just to be sure we're thinking of the same thing when you say shadows/ghosting.

 

Thanks...

Also, the service manual (https://shared.swissparts.ch/Manuals/HP/Plotter/HP%20Designjet%20Z6200.pdf) speaks to the ghosting problem on page 182 and says it should be remedied by a firmware update.  Might want to check out the manual and see if it's the same problem.  I think the latest firmware should be available on the HP website.
