You definitely should not be expereincing head strikes on any part of your print. Unless something is causing that portion of the sheet of paper to rise so that the head COULD strike it.

I recently had a sudden problem with my R2000. Simmilar to yours except much worse. I was getting horrible head to paer scratches and gougings. After a couple of agonizing nights, I took a small LED torch and took a close look at the front of the printer, where the prints emerge and found a little piece of broken plastic that should, for all intents and purposes, not be there. With some needle nose plyers and a flat bladed screw driver, I was able to remove it. Where this came from, I have no clue but the problem immediately dissappeared. Whatever that was, it was pushing the right edge of the paper up against the head as it began to exit out the front.

Look for anything that might be stuck anywhere along the paper path in the area that the problem manifests itself.

Good luck and let us know of any progress.
