Is it my eyes, or does the banding get worse as you move left to right on the image shown?  If so, I'd agree it's paper feed related.

Phil, to my eyes it gets only very marginally worse from left to right. But let's say it is paper-feed related - what kind of a paper feed issue and how does it manifest itself like this?

Thanks everyone for further input. As I have spent two more days printing and testing I've come to find the following.

- I recalibrated the monitor with a 80 luminance setting. the rest the same as stated above. This helped some
- pretty much off the bat adding +20 saturation in all colors (hue sat,master,color mode) seems to get me closer (though makes my screen go hyper)
- Images with primarily midtone values (based on Histogram) print within a range that i find acceptable.

- Images with more 3/4 tone values (RGB aprox 20-60) are not even close. Within that value range I have to push a lot more information into the image via photoshop then what I'm seeing on screen.  I'm not relying on the monitor barely at all, just figuring below RGB 60 that I have to open it up (alot more then what I see on screen)

I will admit that not having a GTI light box on hand or comparable viewing light is a major hindrance since I dont have a consistent viewing station and without that I'm not being fair to the printer or to the experts on this forum. I'm personally not a fan of Apple displays except as beautiful palette monitors, but its not my system. Would love to hook up my calibrated NEC as a test, but we dont have the time right now.

Thanks everyone for your help, its much appreciated!

So seems likely that the ink supply issue is air getting in the line because the cart isn't seating properly (which is also causing a leak, which makes things worse).  That's good news because it's likely there's nothing wrong with the more expensive parts of the printer!

Yes Dehaze is a very interesting algorithm and can give impressive results.

There is a way to use it in LR 6.x.x without having to switch pay anything extra. The only drawback is convenience in so far as using a preset instead of a slider. Check here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55998101

Of course it goes witho0ut saying that you need to be a little computer savvy to be able to do the edits etc.  And work carefully in order not to mess up anything!

What format and bit depth are you using for the export? In fact, what are all the settings in your export dialog box?

  When I export images from LR the Image size is reduced, Ex: File size Before Export 25Mb  after Exporting they are much smaller say 18MB
   Am I doing something wrong ?  Thank you
  I am using 300dpi as well

Thanks Russ and Eric. I also shot a straight forward capture with the flag as primary focus which I will work on next. But I like this comp best.

I'm surprised and somewhat skeptical given the very familiar profile of those defects. I hear you about the nozzle check, but nonetheless it does look like a classic ink-laydown issue. Anyhow, now that you are in the hands of professional tech support it should get sorted out one way or another.
