Are you using OEM inks
Do one normal clean before you start to print and see if that helps
As for the banding, have to stick to what your print shows - however you are on site and there should be no gap or overlap

"We were in the process of headsoaking before we saw your reply yesterday so we let it soak for 24 hours.
Today we went to +15 on calibration and checked and it looked like it needed to go back to +05, so we changed it again.
Yes, we did change…"
"OK calibration - as expected the overlap - equal spaced dark bands - go to +15 or 20
Using arlon - if not arlon profile from their site go to Roland and get the GCVP for a better than generic
If changed cap, then make sure it is springy and little…"
"Thanks for the info on the longer soak. We had done some research on that but didn't know if soaking it longer might harm it. However, it completely makes sense to soak it longer to get potentially encrusted ink off the…"

Can I get a clear picture of one nozzle test straight on.
To get to the scraper on a VS you will have to…"
We just replaced the cap, wiper and felt all last week, as we had tried to do some research on our problems before asking for help. But I don't know what a scraper is. Can you give me more information on it?
Likely your cap top needs replaced, and is past its life cycle. I would assume that this also goes for your wiper, felt and scraper. These items are to be replaced about every 6 months.
With the contamination coming back after some printing,…"

Now whenever I print, it shows bands of darker colors on the lighter color prints. When I print a nozzle test, 1st test of the day, it shows cross contamination of cyan into my yellow. So then I do a normal clean, and print another nozzle test and it looks ok. I have attached both nozzle tests. I have done several manual…See More
