Following my problems with banding on my recently installed 7880 printer with P2 system, I am having banding going from horizontal to vertical orientation. At this point I would like to test again the Head Alignment… I see that ideally one should use Pictorico, but I have tried and several inks are not visible (the channel with Shade 5 and 6, also the ones I have with Piezoflush instead of GO)…
Is there a way to perform the Head Alignment once one has installed the P2 system?
Would you just check those inks that are visible and leave as default the others that are not visible?
Would you use normal paper, or Pictorico?
When printing the Head Alignment test, should I use the Standard printing settings, or select the Custom Paper settings I identified for Pictorico paper? (Paper feed adjustment, thickness, etc).
I assume Unidirectional - manual is the one to perform?
At this point, I am printing all those images without skies and they are coming out beautifully… but I need your help to troubleshoot what might be causing these bandings, many other images I need to print for a next exhibition are full of smooth and homogeneous areas of tone.
Thanks in advance and regards!
