I have an Epson R1900 printer. These bands seem to line up with ridges on the carrier(?!) I don’t know how that could happen, but I have done everything! Numerous head cleanings, head alignment, etc. Nozzles are clean.
Colors are beautiful, and the test print shows good. But whenever I print larger than an 8x10, using the correct settings to match the paper (Epson paper), I get these bands. In this photo you can see the thicker lines, but there are thinner lines in between.
I’ve tried printing using best photo, photo, and I unchecked the high-speed box. It also doesn’t matter what print app I’m using, be it Lightroom or Epson Easy Photo.
I did get a few good prints befoe this started happening. Could it be pressing the paper too hard against the carrier and picking up its marks?
