Streaks on printed films

Seeing streaks or banding/fading on printed films?

The printers printhead may be clogged. 


  • Print a nozzle check from the printer utility and review the results.
  • If seeing streaks or missing section in the printed nozzle check the printhead may be clogged.
  • Run head cleanings. The printhead is clean when a perfect nozzle check is achieved. 
  • The use of a non-corrosive cleaning liquid may be needed such as Amaze-Ink® by Freehand®.
