You must get a service manual to even have a shot at repairing it. This sounds like a motor drive, sensor, problem?

Print striping

I have same problem - if I find a solution I will post it


this is a problem caused by the gel that is not supplied anymore in the printer. certainly the waste ink collector behing the machine is full. by replacing it i solved the problem sometimes, sometimes it is more serious ans the sparepart of the supply must be replaced by crafted man.
hope it can help !
