Re: Epson 2200

The scratches are on the ink side. Currently I am printing gums (multicolor). If it is a shodow area, little ink it is difficult to spot, I tends to show in the highlights. I have a fluorescent light setup and when I flipped nenegative upside down, that is ink facing the light it is even less of a problem.

SOunds like some residual ink or paper debrie buildup.
