Quadtone bandinggreenspun.com : LUSENET : Inkjet Quadtone Printing : One Thread
I just starting printing with MIS Quadtones (actually hexatones) on my Epson 700.
Gettting good results re tone, balance etc.
BUT I am getting some banding/corduroy on the print.
I am at the moment testing on Epson Glossy ('cause its not to expensive) printing at 1440/super microweave.
Is the likely to be residual ink from the change over from colour cartridges (I ran a number of cleaning pages/images of single colours). I don't get the same banding with colour (Epson) inks on this machine with the same settings. Or somehing else?

The corduroy is usually due to a clogged nozzle or a misaligned head. Run a test and see if jets are not firing. I found that the Lysonic cleaning cartridges did a great job on some stubborn jets on my machine.
I also experienced a banding in the blacks due to the printer pausing while running a job. Do you see any of this?
