Default Print Banding

Mike,

I know this is not a problem with QImage v2009.250 (or Photoshop CS4) as it occurs in both programs, but I thought that you might give some insight or a solution.

My Epson 1400 printer has just started to print four 1/8" bands of color (yellow, violet, yellow, violet) along the full length edge of a 4 x 6 print (the 4" edge) when doing a borderless print, in landscape mode.


The same file printed with the borderless feature turned off does not have this banding.


I have the latest printer driver installed (a while ago when it came out).



What is happening here? Has the printer driver become corrupt in some way?


Any thoughts on this please?



Thank you,


William

Default Banding Follow-Up

I think I found out what went wrong.

When the printer software indicated that there was a new driver, I said go ahead and download and install it.

Apparently, the install process did not completely remove the old driver(s). When I went into Control Panel and under Remove Programs, I found that there were 3 driver versions in there (original when printer first installed and 2 updated drivers). I removed these and any other Epson software, unplugged the printer from power and USB and then did a new installation of the latest driver.

After this new install method, all is working like it should.

If you find that I should do something else, please let me know.

Thank you,

William
