Hi Mark,

Yes, it is really fine microbanding, but visible to
the naked eye.

I just did an automatic head alignment on my 4000
(using enhanced matte paper as per the manual), then
re-printed my step tablet at 2880. High speed was
turned off. There is a significant improvement, but
still visible to the naked eye.

Do you mean I should run the head alignment but using
OHP instead of the enhanced matte paper?
