This was discussed extensively on the piezo list. In a nutshell it can be two things: 1) The level of ink in botlles is too high wrt to head; If bottles are filled more than 3/4 full, raise printer about 1/2 inch until level goes down. 2) after many prints you need to press paper feed button for 5 seconds, sending head to left. Unplug printer. Work a 2 inch wide paper towel or photo-wipe (DRY!!!) under head(you can put lever on "+" to get it under, then put back on "0"). After it is under head, put some drops of windex on it. Now wipe head back and forth across towel or swipe towel across head, either way. Repeat if nessecary. Clean up any ink on grey rollers, plug printer back in. May need to run one or two cleaning cycles. This works very well on my 1160/CIS/piezo. Please see the piezo archive or e-mail tech-support at cone editions. They have a page of procedure ready to send back to you on this topic.
