I am using an Epson Stylus Pro R3000. I am printing using Lightroom running under Windows 10.
I develop a large number black streaks or smudges on the left side of print. See attached. They are mostly horizontal about 1/2 inches long and about 1/16 inch wide. There are some vertical streaks which very in length. They are rather consistent.
I did the following to try to clean and clear out the problem:
- I used PiezoFlush to clean the capping station, print heads and wiper blade - twice
- I did nozzle cleanings through the printer driver and I included an attachment of the nozzle check
= the nozzle cleaning sometimes delays the streaking for as much as one picture but usually less
- I tried setting the Platen Gap to wide and paper thickness to 11 mm but this had no impact
At this point I am stuck. Do I replace the capping station or the whole nozzle assembly?
Are there any less drastic measures?
Thanks for any help you can give me,
