You might want to check to make sure there's no debris on the belts or in the belt path.

Thanks g.

I checked the belts and belt path. Adjusted the belts and still get the same print.
Is there any thing else that might be causing this?
Thanks for your help I am going crazy trying to fix this.

Are you using the original arms on your v2? If so, can you post a pic of the arm end?

tnx.

I would check to make sure that the carriages are still tight on the rails. I've had two v2s that have had broken screw pockets, primarily due to my inadvertent over-tightening of the screws. :)

OK I checked the carriage, its good belt are tight. used MatterControl and Cura 4.0, Printed in PLA and ABS (the light blue one). Any more suggestion or am I just stuck with this as the best it going to get?
Thanks for all the help so far.
