In the case of sublimation printing there are some problems you will probably encounter along the road to success. Each can be avoided with the right understanding and approach. Today we will share you some tips for solve this
If you encounter lines of missing ink in your printouts, then you are most having banding issues, the most common cause of which is clogged print head nozzles. Like it or not, ink dries out over time, all ink, not just dye sublimation ink. If this happens inside the print heads, then obviously the flow of ink will be inhibited, which results in streaks of missing ink on the printout .
As long as you are printing on a regular basis, at least several times per week, the ink will not have an opportunity to dry out. But for long stretches of time with no printer activity, you could have issues.
The simplest way to deal with this is to run a small quantity of sublimation ink through the heads on a routine basis, by using the head cleaning function of your printer. In the case of Virtuoso and Ricoh printers, this is done for you automatically, as long as you leave the printer powered up. However, for Epson printers you will need to perform a manual head cleaning every few days, which means pushing a button.
For those of you who have a short term memory, there are some software programs available that will prompt your printer to perform a head cleaning at specified intervals. You set it up and it does the work as long as you leave everything powered up!
Banding has some other causes besides just clogged heads, such as running out of ink. Before you start going crazy with troubleshooting, make sure you still have plenty of ink in your system.
