I am having issues with the print head being too close to the paper/ cards I am printing on. As I print, some of the cards have this issue where the ink showes clear paths the ink head took as it went accross it. is there a way to raise the print head somehow? I have tried printing through both the manual and top feeding trays with no difference.
If you go to Devices and Printers in the Control Panel you should see this.
Here is where you find the latest driver.
After you are sure you have the latest driver i nstalled here is how you can access the head abrasion setting.
I will be away from computer for a while now.
I agree, turning on the prevent paper abrasion setting to see if that resolves the issue would be your best option. If you still have the issue after changing the setting, it would mean there is some curling in the paper or the paper is too stiff/thick for the paper path. You can try laying a single sheet of the cardstock on a flat surface to check for any curling.
To see if there are any other suggestions or settings that you can change, please reply to this message with the specific type and size of cardstock that you have and we will try to assist further.
