The ink on my print seems oil or smudges when I touch it. How can this be fixed?

There are various different circumstances in which these symptoms can be seen.

When the symptoms can be seen only at the start of the first print after the printer has been idle for some time (especially when the start of the print uses a lot of ink)

  • This may be just a temporary problem: try reprinting, and perhaps slightly reduce the ink limits. It may be worth adjusting the print queue so that the first job is not difficult to cure (uses a lot of ink).

When the symptoms can be seen only in certain parts of the print that use a lot of ink

  • Increase the curing temperature, decrease the overall ink quantity, increase the number of passes, and/or modify the inter-path delay offset (in the RIP or front panel) to allow better drying on consecutive passes.

When the symptoms appear after reducing the number of passes

  • Increase the curing temperature, decrease the overall ink quantity, and/or modify the inter-path delay offset (in the RIP or front panel) to allow better drying on consecutive passes.

When the oily finish appears minutes or hours after printing

  • Store the print face-up and uncovered; the effect normally disappears after a while.
