Tyler, This sounds like the most likely reason for the problem. I took your advice, had to subscribe to the the piezography3000 list first. I finally found the post by Mark Romino with the detailed instructions on how to tighten the springs. He does not mention that one might have to tighten them selectively depending on where the print is slipping. This part will not be quite as easy to figure out. He says he tightened them (I assume all?). Tomorrow I will try this even though it sounds scary. Thanks so much for posting this. I will let you know how it worked. If anyone else wants to check it out the instructions are in message 151 on that list.
