"That makes sense. You can check the fuses on the head board to see if they have popped for some reason. If they are good then yes, the heads are just clogged up. I'm not terribly far away from you should you need a tech onsite..."

"Hi Steve, The issue is not a board. If you got ink moving through both cap tops now, what does the test print look like?"

I hope you have the manual. Your nozzle test is not good, a lot worst out there, but not the greatest. When was the last time he changed the captop. 

So the missing nozzles will cause banding - so will wrong profile and bad calibration - not really your issue.

Your calibration is slightly off - the slight gap in  your nozzle test

The over printing - I believe it is your bi-directional that needs adjusting - or that is a close up of a raster image - if you print a vector and it looks like that - when the printhead goes from left to right it is dropping ink too soon. 

The dull prints - not the ink - ink is never the cause - wrong profile and you are designing in CMYK - Do your work in RGB, Pantone, or Roland Color Library to get better prints

Set the correct profile in the quality tab in VW, in the printer tab, set all the settings to default media.
