I just purchased a used XR-640 printer got it home and it prints just fine but its like the print is faded like its only putting on half the ink needed. the inks seem to be plenty full. The only…Continue
"!Omaha? Oh man. You might have a deal! I decided to order the heads and dampers a bit ago. I'll have em next week. We'll see what happens there. But yeah. I am definitely interested in having someone onsite who can at least…"
"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..."
"Yeah that's kind of what I thought too. Currently I have NO test print. When I first got it from the previous owner/poster it would print a test where one set was there but a little rough and the other set was almost non existent... to…"
"II apologise for the long post, bear with me. So I just found this thread. Ryan sold this printer to me just a couple weeks after this thread posted. He led me to believe that it had been working and then slowly over a little time…"
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.
