Troubleshooting for Banding

Issue

Ink is printed onto paper unevenly, which creates a striped “banding” effect.

Why does banding occur? + Quick Fixes:

N

Banding may be caused by clogged printhead nozzles.

Run nozzle checks or test draws to printing and clean printheads to ensure print head nozzles are firing correctly.

N

Banding can be caused by printer “stepping” issues, meaning the transfer paper is advancing too fast for the print heads to overlap during printing. Consequently, uneven amounts of ink are printed to the transfer paper.

Ensure advancement of paper is adjusted correctly.

MAKE SURE PRINTHEAD NOZZLES ARE FIRING PROPERLY AS THIS IS THE # 1 CAUSE OF BANDING.
