Banding/Lines on prints

I am seeing faint dark horizontal lines on the prints and it SEEMS to be unrelated to my printer. They are not printer banding, but they don't appear on the saved images. The lines appear in the same place on the paper regardless of image size on the print-out (Mondrian for example with different size images will have one band across both sizes in the same physical location). I have tried everything. I suspect it may be something to do with a bad alpha channel on an overlay the program uses? I am not sure. I am on an intel Mac with Snow Leopard and using a Logitech Webcam. I am using an Epson Artisan 800 for the printer.

Has anyone experienced this issue?

Thanks tons!

    Have you tried re-installing the progrram?

    I had the same problem when I ran the ink low on my printer. After placing a new cartridge in my printer it did not clear up until after about 4 photos.

    Hi Myron,

    If the problem showed up on your digital photos then I would be inclined to say that it was something you missed when editing your overlay. However, you stated that it is not on your saved images. So, best guess here is that your printer head needs a cleaning. It could also be some ink that wiped off on one of your rollers, which has happened to me.
