My ESP9900 just produced this horrible mess (attached). I initially cancelled the job when I saw the image was too small, and I don't yet know the reason for that, but I'm guessing it's independent of whatever's causing these scrapes and smears. The paper is a 315gsm matte A2 and the image is of surf, or rather of a pastel drawing of surf, and it's mostly blue and white with a little green, in case it's not immediately obvious what doesn't belong to it. Immediately prior to this two A3 prints were successfully made on the same paper. I guess I'll likely have to call support but in the meantime should I try again or might that risk causing (more) damage?

Looks like a severe head strike.  What is the paper thickness and what platen gap are you using?

Actual paper thickness is 460 microns but in the driver settings it's 0.2mm with the platen gap set to auto, so I guess that's the problem. I changed the media type without checking the thickness setting. In this situation should I be worried about knock-on effects or just correct the settings and get back to printing?

Later: I've now successfully made the print on which the problem was encountered, it seems no damage was caused. Smiley
