I had some problems like that with my Epson 1280.  I found a website
that helped... fixyourownprinter.com . I found instructions there for
cleaning the bottom of the print head assembly, using distilled
water-soaked coffee filters (no lint), which were placed under the
head in the print-pathway and then the head was moved by hand, back
and forth over the filters... you have to read the detailed
instructions at the site... but it got a ton of crud off the bottom of
the head, and now I have no scratches or marks happening.

I don't know if the 2200 is similar enough to the 1280 to use the same
instructions, but if you don't find anything there on the 2200... do
the forum search for the 1280 cleaning and read that.  it might work
fine for you.

Good luck.

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.
