SP 300v Bad print quality

Post by tom55683 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 10:28 pm

Hi, my Name is Thomas, I'm new in the Forum.

I bought an used SP 300V Printer and have problems with the print quality.

Printer: SP 300V
Software: VersaWorks
Media: Orajet 3164
Media Profile: Orajet 3164G v1
Ink: NAZDAR 2000

I did the complete HEAD Adjustment (BIAS, VERTIVAL, HORIZONTAL, BIDIRECTION) (see pictures).
BIAS Adjustment_01.jpg
VERTICAL Adjustment_01.jpg
HORIZONTAL Adjustment_01.jpg
BIDIRECTION Adjustment_01.jpg
Test Print_01.jpg
As you can see the TEST Peint_02 looks very bad. Specially the Colors yellow and blue are very unsharp.

I know, that some of the nozzles are clogged, but I think thats not the reason for the unsharp pictures.

Hope anyone can help.

Thanks

Right, your heads are misaligned and you need to have the first head (KC) replaced.

Thanks for you soon reply mrtn.

How can I align the Print head correct? I do the BIAS, VERTICAL, HORIZONTAL and BIDIRECTON Aligment.

You think the KC head need to be replace. Are you sure, the the Yellow Magentha head is OK? How can I fix the unsharp Yellow picture?

Thank's Thomas

I wouldn't know before performing all adjustments first and also other regular service activities.

I would start with replacing the captops, performing a head wash and continuing from there.

Then again, I would rather call me and have me do it as it's not going to be less expensive hitting and missing yourself. A service engineer might get the heads running fully and adjust everything to specs.
