Hi Graeme,

Thank you for your assistance. Yes, I meant TID

I tried removed the label text for the TID, and get the same errors.

Mostly "Strip read failed due to misread (Invalid strip patch size was
detected, Re-scan)"
and once  "Strip read failed due to misread (Failed magenta calibration
during TID read, Re-scan TID)"

I tried all possible variations I could think of for positioning the DTP20.

I'll attach the tif file with the TID.

Do you have any other ideas?

Thank you,
