I just started to print digital negatives on my Epson R2880 printer with K7 inks and P2 curves. I ran into a couple of issues and perhaps someone can help me out:
There are visible lines across the negative separating different moves of the printheads (I believe).
The little metal star wheels leave visible marks on the black areas of the negative.
Unrelated to the DN printing per se, I also have experienced some serious issues with the R2880 that came up simultaneously. After a few fine prints (other than the problems above) the printer started to leak drops of ink. I think through the printheads, the inside of the cartridge compartment seems clear. Things did not improve after manual cleaning according to the cleaning kit video instructions. Is there a chance to fix any of this or does the printer need to go to repair?
