Yes.
Would you as good as guarantee that a new black head would give me a perfect print going from the grainy current image just shown?

It would be my 4th print head and at £500 a pop it would be an expective part to not resolve me issue.

What does your current head test show and which heads have you now replaced?

I had replaced the magenta twice (the engineer from sphire digital uk) got ink in the prints Data cable connector a killed the first one I put in (at my cost I will add - grrr!) the other headreplaced was cyan. As you can see from my last nozzle test these two look ok.

With a fresh print head, original ink and good media with a matching profile and print mode: absolutely.

Current print doesn't look like an incorrect profile at the moment?

It can be anything. I doubt you have the correct profile.

tried a new profile ("semi-gloss") today and looks much nicer than before but still not right would this give any further indication where my issue lies?


The pinky parts are really nice in comparison to the dark stem

Always post your nozzle test print as well.
