I just bought one of these beasts with the hope of being able to print my own shots - and I'm fairly dissapointed with what it does so far. I'm using genuine inks, maximum quality, Epson high gloss 200gm photo paper - and I'm getting significant banding - in fact, the same sort of banding I used to get from my little HP deskjet I bought 4 years ago for a third of the cost. I've run it through the cleaning cycle and sat it firmly on the ground to minimise any vibration, but I'm still getting banding. I've taken a shot of the last print I did, it's original size(huge) at http://www.pbase.com/dmcg/image/46820865 With a zoom of the particularly bad area around the tower at http://www.pbase.com/dmcg/image/46820888 It's particularly bad across the sky on the right and the water at the bottom. The banding is quite visible holding the A4 print at arms length - so there's no way I'd ever put it in an album. Is this the best I'll get from this printer ? Or can someone cheer me up and tell me I'm doing something wrong - if not, it's going straight back to Epson with a complaint.
