In Flexi, if the line is thicker than 0.001 inch.  It will consider as inner and outter two lines.
You can change the line thickness to 0.001 inch or 0 in Flexi.
Screenshot and sample files enclosed.

Verify USB Driver Installation

3. A Device Manager window will popup.
4. Expand the Ports (COM&LPT) node in the device tree if it has one; otherwise, continue.
5. Connect the USB cable or the USB adapter, turn on the Vinyl Cutter.  Follow the Wizard for the first time.
6. Ensure the a new COM# node appears under the Ports (COM&LPT) node.
7. If the new COM# is greater than COM9, you need to change it to COM9 or below. (next Post)
8. The COM# is different in different USB port or computers.
9. You need Restart computer to make this new COM# available for other applications.
10. You need to set the same COM# accordingly in your sign making software.
** If you are using Flexi software, under "Add Setup -> How is your "Model" connected to your computer?", select above COM#.

If not the software issue, you may check the condition of the cutting head(tools carriage) and make sure it is on the rail, the blade condition.

For the Friction Feed machines, it will leave some imprint to the vinyl from the roller.  The imprint is from underneath of the vinyl film, so more of the imprint will stay on the backing, and usually they are not visible after apply the vinyl to the banner.

If those imprints are critical to you, a few things you can try.
1.   Using the vinyl film with thicker backing, most of the high end vinyl has thicker backing.
2.   Add another piece of paper or vinyl in the bottom of the vinyl you are cutting.
3.   Reduce the tension evenly on all pinches. (It may affect the tracking if not even)

It seems some mechanical issue.  It could be some screws are loose or something don't move smoothly. Please check the transmission from the right motor to the blade and the left motor to the roller.
