Hi Don... thanks, and yeah, I've run the head cleaning and alignment
routines and all that.  I even took the case off and did a manual
nozzle cleaning with steamy water and filter paper, etc.  Got lots of
gunk off with that, but I still get the faint horizontal lines.

I assume you have done a head cleaning and nozzle check, but have you done
an alignment check on Pictorico? That made a difference for me. Also some
folks have suggested taping the Pictorico to a sheet of paper for printing
to improve quality. Of course another alternative is to purchase a newer
model printer.

Can anyone please tell me what to do about my Epson 1280 printing with those
little horozontal lines... I assume that's what I see referred to as
venetian blinds?  Is there any fix?  I'm trying to get some good positives
on OHP for photogravure, then these darned lines start showing up.
