Is banding a result of clogged magenta print head? Epson 3800
Mar 7, 2013

The Magenta channel on my Epson 3800 will not clear after numerous cleanings, power and normal. Prints look pretty good, except for one big print that I need to make. This print is of a bridge construction and there are large pieces of steel that take on an orangish color. In this orange color I am getting banding. Is this because of the clogged Magenta channel?

Everything else looks fine.... another print looks a little grainy though when it really shouldn't be.

I have done the automatic head-alignment as well.

Any thoughts?

Any ideas on cleaning this head?

This isn't a gamut issue is it?

Here's the shot so you see the color reference - banding is showing up mainly in the iron on the upper right, but I'm also seeing some minor striping down on the barge deck as well. I don't see any in the sky or other colors.

Thanks, I look forward to your knowledge in this.
