[QUOTE=rocksnboarder;2083451]I tried that and it still comes up with vertical smudge lines. At this point I’m really lost at what to do.
Another thing to add is that my pgi blk cartridge is low and my other blk cartridge hasn’t been used at all. I thought pgi was for documents?
Does anyone know how to calibrate the monitor?[/QUOTE]
CLI-8-black is dye based ink, for photos. PGI-5 black is pigment based, for documents. If you have the driver set for disc printing, duplex or photo paper, it will use the CLI-8 black and a mix of colors depending on the color profile and specific image. PGI-5 will only be used on plain paper settings for the most part.
Your monitor calibration has nothing to do with streaks on your discs, but if you want more info just Google monitor calibration and color profiles.
[B]It would be immensely helpful if you would post an image of the streak problem you have.[/B]
Your printer prints the label from top to bottom, with the top exiting the printer first. The print head moves in left-right motions. Streaks running from top to bottom would be caused by something contacting the disc in the tray-handling mechanism. When you open the tray door before inserting the tray, it spreads the exit rollers so the disc does not contact anything. Only the tray comes in contact with the machinery.
