Hi Mark... They look more like what you described as microbanding.  I
have to look very closely to see them.  The good news is that my
gravures have gotten good enough now that I can see any flaws in the
negative.  The bad news is that my gravures have gotten good enough
now that I can see any flaws in the negative.

so is there a fix for micribanding?

 Venetian Blinds are fairly wide lines that go in the direction the head of
the printer travels.  Venetian blinds have a regular frequency to them and
they are soft looking....well sorta like venetian blinds.  There is also
microbanding, which is much much smaller, very sharp, and sometimes only
visible with a loupe.... which do you think it is?

 Best Wishes,

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.
