The first 3 pages printed with striations and when heat pressed came out a blue vs a turquoise I was planning for?

Hi there,

Either the ink supply or ink head is not working or blocked, or the colour profiling is incorrect.
Try taking apart as much as you can, uninstall everything and install it all again.

the first two inches of a page do not print properly and the the turquoise did not print properly on 4 pages. Does this sound more like ink supply or ink head? I have verified the color profiles so sure that is not the issue.
