In the Control Panel menu, Adj. Priority is set to Print Length.Setting Adj. Priority to Print Quality in the Control Panel menu and adjusting the feed amount may improve results.
(See " Adjusting the Feed Amount (iPF6400SE/iPF8400SE) ")

The Printhead nozzles are clogged.Print a test pattern to check the nozzles and see if they are clogged.
(See " Checking for Nozzle Clogging (iPF6400SE/iPF8400SE) ")
To check for nozzles after printing, set Frequency in Nozzle Check in the Control Panel menu to a setting other than Off. Furthermore, to have a warning displayed depending on the result of the nozzle check, set Warning in Nozzle Check in the Control Panel menu to On. Note that when Warning is set to On, printing may stop depending on the content of the warning.
Streaks may occur if you set the Print Quality too low.Choose a higher level of Print Quality in the Advanced Settings of the printer driver and try printing again. Printing in Fast or Standard mode is faster and consumes less ink than in Highest quality or High modes, but the printing quality is lower.
The type of paper specified in the printer driver does not match the type loaded in the printer.Load paper of the same type as you have specified in the printer driver.
Make sure the same type of paper is specified in the printer driver as you have loaded in the printer.
1. Press the Stop button and stop printing.
2. Change the type of paper in the printer driver and try printing again.
