that is buried deep in the system maint file that is hard to access even when you have the directions - first thing to do is to get a nozzle check and see if it has missing nozzles in the print.  I have seen deflected nozzles come back but have never seen missing nozzles come back on a solvent printer.  make sure to find a service manual for the printer as you will be doing maint and replacement after a while on any solvent printer - nature of the beast - I always planned on about $1K a year maint for a replacement head, wipers, dampers, etc.   you are best to visit a friend for a day that has a solvent printer to learn about them before purchasing - my first one I drove over 4 hrs each way for my education session
