Abstract

A full-width, full-color thermal mk jet print bar assembly comprised of four (4) full-width arrays; a black and the remaining colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow). A defective nozzle or jet, caused by a failure in the associated heater printer in any of the printheads, creates white streaks on the output prints.
