Print is faint or has gaps

Make sure that the Ink Level setting in the RICOH Ri 3000 or RICOH Ri 6000 RIP program is not too low for the media being printed on. If printing with a Narrow Variable Dot Range, switch to Wide. Make sure that the ink cartridges are not past their expiration date. Run a Nozzle Check. If needed, perform the necessary Print Head cleaning. Adjust the Print Table height to the correct level.
