    I have an epson photo 700 that has been great for five years. Now I am getting awful banding when printing graphics or pictures in color on photo paper. It happens with different brands of photo paper. The settings are correct. I have run utilities/head cleaning numerous times. It works ok with regular paper.
    any ideas?
    It looks like I may need a new printer, which I really don't want to do.

    Try physically cleaning the cartridges - using a slightly damp lint free cloth gently clean the nozzles and the copper contacts on the cartridges themselves.
