Some HP Light Fabric rolls are are defective and cause head strikes
We have been using the HP Light Fabric for many years with the HP 360 Latex, and we have found that specific LOT numbers are defective. It appears that the material is not evenly wound around the core, causing the fabric to slowly develop a wrinkle around the center area of the roll during printing. It takes about 6 to 8 feet of printing until you get a head strike. When we first noticed this a few years back, we naturally concluded that it was a user error. In addition, the issue went away for a significant length of time, only to occasionally come back. However, we have been experiencing this problem consistently with the last few rolls, and it is very aggravating. We have to go back and forth with our vendors, asking for specific LOT numbers to be excluded from our orders. Simply, not good. If anyone knows of a solution, it would be greatly appreciated. Here are some answers to questions you may want to ask: Printer: 360 Latex Clean and oiled printer?: All parts are super clean Experienced operator?: 20 years Take up wheel used or not?: Yes and no. We have tried both. Tried different vacuum pressures: Yes Tried different temperatures: Yes Does the problem exist through the whole defective roll?: Yes Are the good rolls having any problems at any point?: No Unloading and reloading the rolls make a difference?: No Is the printer detecting any skew when loading?: No. We load very carefully. Does the fabric show any ripples before it goes into the feed?: Yes, after a few feet. Here are a couple of sample LOT numbers: BAD LOT: 2924321010 GOOD LOT: 2924041017 I will be happy to get some feedback about this and even happier if anyone has a good suggestion.

Z6200 Not printing square
Our old Z6200 60 Inch has developed a problem where it starts to print out of square on long jobs. After the initial media loading (180 g matt paper), it prints fine. But anything longer than 1 metre starts to drift out of square. I feel it is the paper feed rollers at fault, is there any adjustments that I could perform?

I am running an HP335Latex. I'm running Nekoosa 9RTape) OM 14Mil Synaps which ran easily on my old 310 printer, but using the same profile warps when it goes through the heaters on my new 335. I'm running it as a 12 pass, 207degree heat, 100% saturation. What can I do to lower the heaters so that it will still cure correctly, but not warp the material. Can I submit a photo, so you can see what it's doing?

Why is my color changing as the poster prints?
When printing a poster the color starts out as red and then at some point during the printing it changes to pink. The first time I thought it was a fluke so I tried printing it again and it did the same thing but at a different point in the printing process. I am using a HP DesignJet Z5200 44-in Photo Printer and have printed multiple items prior to this without a problem. Any suggestions on a solution?
