Hi Please just see linked pictures...have you ever seen this Printhead issue ?Printer prints well and sometimes I can see some light Cyan stain streak. I can see it very rarely. It usually arrives after 3 meters print interval.Most of the time, customers never see any issue but sometimes tbis issue could be visible.I have run printhead cleaning and this light cyan printhead had printed only 300ml. Have you ever seen a similar issue ?
It is hard to tell from the images. My suggestion will be to clean the OMAS and calibrate it (Image-quality Maintenance> Substrate-advance calibration> OMAS calibration) to see if you spot any difference.
It couldn't be OMAS issues because HP Latex L310 don't have OMAS...
Is it normal that a new printhead could have this issue ?
I hoped that this issue will desapear after lots of prints but no evolution.
We have discarded that the PrintHead are default because they are quite new (300ml)... But I suggest you to align just in case and try to assure that PHs are performing correctly.
Another suggestion will be to do the "Manual advance alignment" to avoid Image Quality issues:
Clean print platen: Revise "Clean the platen" chapter in the User Guide (page 146 for the English version)
If the issue persist, you should contact with support service
OK, i'll try this...
We seem to be having the same issue on our Latex 360. Its much more noticable in teals and some darker blues. Have you had any luck correcting it? We recently purchased a 570 and the 360 has become our secondary machine. I'm going to reset everything to factory and recalibrate everything I can. Replace all printheads and do come cleaning. I'll let you know my results.
I have replaced Light CYAN printhead and it seems to solve this issue.
Just replace the printhead and please let me know if it solves your problem ?
Another consideration is that there may be bulid up of dried ink under the carriage itself that is dragging across the media causing this streak. To confirm, follow the these steps:
Does your customers have exactly the same issue ? (see pictures on the first message)
Pretty much so - bottom line is other options aren't working so my suggestion would be to take a stab and see. Again, it's probably build up on this particular ph position - won't know until you try.
Does your customers are very very much printing with their printer?
How many SMK services they have done ?
Replacing the printhead fixed our issue as well. Thanks!
Pretty sure they haven't reached MK #3 yet. It might be best to contact support to discuss this option. It might very well work.
but MK #3 is the first service, you know ?
If they don't have done MK #3 service, their printer is all new, isn't it ?
Yes, I'm aware that #3 is first. Not trying to compare customer's usage vs yours, just offering a possible solution.
