It's likely caused by dirty heads or bad paper. Since ZINK is a thermal printing technology and it's dependenttechnology, it dpends on heat and clean headsthe thermal head being clean. This is also why the paper packs include a calibration/cleaningcleaning/calibration sheet.

I would tryTry a new pack of paper, so you can clean thewhich will rule out bad paper and dirty heads. Most ZINK printers dislike sudden paper changes (which isn'tnot a problem forwith dye sub), so you may need to use the remaining papercurrent pack up to keepavoid sync problems. This may not be the printer in synccase every time, but it's the norm with most ZINK printers. If this doesn't fix it, then the thermal head is bad.
