We had a similar problem and it required a service call to replace the
print head carriage and a sensor that had gotten messed up when someone
printed aerial photograph on 20 Lbs bond paper. That kind of paper
cannot handle the amount of ink an aerial lays down.  Anyway sounds like
it is time for a service call.

Hello All-


I just ran into a huge problem and have been on Google for the past 10
minutes trying to figure out what's causing my HP 1055CM to create these
awful bans throughout my entire printouts.  Before I sent anything to
the plotter I replaced ALL my printhead/cleaners and made sure the ink
was good as my plotter was telling me to "monitor printheads and now
says "ok".  Then I sent 10 large 30x36 prints at the same time, but was
getting these small bans through the first 4 prints and then the lines
just got thicker in the 5 print and it created thick black lines and
looks as if my alignment is off.  So I canceled the print job and reran
the printhead realignment, then sent one to the printer and I still get
the bans although not as thick. This may be some easy plotter answer
that everyone should know, but I don't and could use some help.   Would
dates that are printed on the boxes of the printheads be an issue if
they are fairly older?  Never had a problem in the past with them,
although I have had poor print quality for the past year with this
system just not as poor as today.


Thank you-
