I need the collective expertise of this group on this one. You guys have gotten me from "I'll never do digital" to being quite comfortable with my digital darkroom set up... mostly by paying attentions to your words of wisdom. Many thanks!

Enough flattery, on to the problem....

Set-up:
Printer: 2200
Paper: Premium Luster, Premium Glossy, Premium Semi-gloss, Enhanced Matte
PS7 or Picture Window Pro 3.1
Minolta Dimage MultiScan Pro
Epson 2450
HW Monitor calibration via MonacoEZcolor is fine; great match between screen and prints.
No problems encountered with either Epson profiles or Lepp profiles.

Problem: a narrow 1/4 inch band appears in the direction of the print head movement (perpendicular to the paper movement) about 1/2 inch from the final printed edge. This band appears to be about .3 to .5 of a stop lighter with no color shift. I have observed this on 11x17 or larger prints. I do not see it on Letter size prints. The problem has shown on Glossy and Matte (I don't have any Luster or Semigloss, yet, at the larger sizes). The band is not visble on my monitor or the original slides. The band has appeared while printing through either PS7 or PWP3.1

There doesn't seem to be any mechanical paper movement problem as the paper advances through the printer.

Any ideas on what might be the cause?

thanks in advance for your assistance.
