XC-540 Banding banding banding

This is when lines appear across the print, again the most common cause for this is blocked nozzles but this is a brand new unit
seems onlt to happen with smooth vinyl
try as I may to adjust the heat or anything cant get rid of it
help :Oops:

Check your test print.
Test print has some fallout, check the heads, may need cleaned.
Run a cleaning cycle.

Test print will give you the best idea of what is wrong.

sounds like the media may be advancing in increments a fraction larger then the pprint laid down by each pass of the head

If selecting a different profile doesnt work, try a coupleof medium clean cycles, if that doesnt help then do a manual cleaning.

What does the nozzle test show ?? Test print from control panel of the XC-540... Lines within each color should be consistantly spaced and aligned.
