HELP! VP-540 streaking cyan 100% fully on from start of prin

:shock: Printers been non stop pain in the bottom and this is the current problem. And this is after 8 new ribbon cables (jv4 head cables)

Had this before and I turned off the machine, in plugged and it went after plugging back. In (albeit on the black) but that got shorted.

what would cause half the magenta side of the cyan head to do this the black side of the cyan head is fine, i know this as i unplugged the data head cable on the magenta side and the streak was gone but obviously so what the right side of the cyan on the test print.

Looks like an issue with one of the boards connected to the head cables or possibly the head itself.

is it more likely to be the board that the head cables goes into? Rather than the 3 long V High Cable Cards that go from that board back further into the machine

It will be trial and error, you would have to test each part accordingly.
