Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4800 InkJet Printer
Suddenly today, after never before having any problem with this printer whatsoever, a strange banding pattern has appeared. I am printing in Advanced Black and White Mode on 81/2 x 11 Exhibition Fiber Paper from PhotoShop CS3 on a Dell computer running Windows XP Professional.
The photograph is centered on the paper and is 10" high 6.5" wide and there appears a thick black line, about 1/16" wide all the wat from the left edge of the paper to about 1/2" from the right side of the paper where it cuts off. From The photograph is a vertical shot and the printer is set to Portrait Mode, opposed to Landscape. From the top of the sheet, the black line starts at about 1 1/2" down, and on the bottom of the shhet the 1/16" horizontal black line starts at about 5/8" up from the bottom. In between these two horizontal black lines, the photograph is printed, however there is a series of thin 1/32" black horizontal lines banded all the way from the top thick black line down to the bottom black line. I cleaned the print head multiple times, checked the alignment of the head and printed it out and it is fine......no gaps. Then I printed another sheet, and the problem persisted. I shut down the cpu and the printer and restarted everything...The problem persisted. I changed out the Light Black T5647 Cartridge, printed again and still the problem exists. At this point, I do not know what to do, or what the problem is. Any suggestions? I could scan a photograph with the problem and email it, if it would help.
Thank you in advance.
