Re: 7800 scratches on Pictorico

Thanks for your suggestions Jeremy.  It should help me in testing to narrow down the problem area in the printer at least. 

Interesting that no one else has this problem with pictorico and epsons.  It was definitely less pronounced when I first got the printer, and I keep it covered, so I assume it's a build-up of some kind.

Since it's post-printhead you could try just taping a piece of paper to the printer below the printhead area as opposed to sandpaper. If nothing else, to narrow it down.

Hi Mark,

Base side, not ink side.  Yes, I'm using roll feed.  The scratching appears to happen after the media passes by the print head.

I can't get my fingers in all areas of the paper path to feel for burrs or buildup but have dusted the heck out of it.

Are you seriously suggesting using sandpaper in my printer?  That sounds like something that would bring me out of the frying pan and into the fire in short order, but please tell me more...
