This printer is only two years old but because it hasn`t been used regularly the photo prints have a faint vertical banding at the ends as shown in the photo. I have replaced all the cartridges with new genuine Epson ones, cleaned all the printheads and visible rollers but with no success. It has no trouble with black and white documents so is an ideal buy for office etc documents. As I only used it for colour prints it would mean having it taken for repair which would be too costly. There is also an additional cyan unused cartidge.
