LEF 200 Stripes in orange print

Post by Lecram » Sat Nov 23, 2019 2:31 pm

After printing, there are visible stripes in the orange part. The green part is much better.
I did a medium cleaning before I printed hat you see on the picture. Before the cleaning it was much worse.

What can I do more than this to get rid of the stripes?

Are you doing manual cleans? Should be done weekly at least. Also, whats the nozzle check like?

I virtually never do machine panel cleans, a manual clean with some fluid in the captop works every time.

I still have this issue, even after a service from the supplier (altough I doubt the knowledge if the engineer).

Any suggestions?

I don't know. How do I check that? With a test print?

Exactly like that, I usually do one after every manual clean just to make sure.
