"I had a similar problem on a VP540, much older, but the ribbon cable had an internal crack so as the head passed back and forth it would encounter a data loss / corruption at the same spot resulting a line(s) being printed in same spot left to right."

"OK, so I traced it back to the computer.  To save some time, I reran one of the files on another computer. It printed perfectly with no problems. The issue,now, must be with the computer.  I'll mess with it over the next day and see…"

"OK, good news I figured it out.  I just down the main power for about 30 seconds and restarted it.  Did a test print using the same art file and those lines disappeared. Hopefully, this is helpful for someone. Thanks, Constantine"
