[QUOTE=walkerblackwell;10767]It’s very hard to see what’s going on there.
If this is the vertical cyan-to-magenta banding that I see, then it’s probably still a head alignment issue coupled with the wrong platen gap.
I need more specifics on platen, media type, paper, profile, and print direction and ideally a closer photo.
I’m not sure which banding you’re referring to. There is some horizontal banding which is shifting from the cyans to magentas, and is real from the image. The vertical banding is an artifact from printing. The picture from the camera seems to have picked up more of the magentas in that portion of the sky. The next scan is a small portion that contains about 4-5 of the vertical cyan bands, and seems a little more accurate when compared to the print. The vertical bands are running parallel to the head movement.
I was printing on Ultra Premium Presentation Matte, using the Epson inkset, using the Epson profile SPR2000 ultra premium presentation matte. The reason it took me so long to reply to this post was it took me this long to find the platen adjustment. Epson cleverly hid it and called it “Reduce Scraping”. This was unchecked, so presumably the platen gap was not wide. I used Print Quality set to SuperFine, MicroWeave at Super, High Speed unchecked, Edge Smoothing unchecked.
I printed this on the R3000, but the SuperFine quality was unavailable in Matte so I had to go with SuperPhoto instead. This print looked very good.
I hope this helps.
