Default Need help with blurry edges on transparencies - epson inkjet L382

Hi there, I hope someone has advice for me. I have trouble printing sharp quality transparencies with my new Epson inkjet L382
It starts off well (at the beginning of the page) and then gets more jagged and blurry towards the end of the page... (I wanted to attach a photo as an example, but I'm new to the forum and not sure how)

I'm using Corel Draw X5, Epson inket L382, Penguin Inkjet Transparencies

with the following printer settings:
Paper: Epson matte
Quality: High
Grayscale: ON
Edge Smoothing: ON
High Speed: OFF
Britghtness: 0
Contrast +25

I have played around with the settings a bit, but still get the same result.
I'm totally at a loss to what it can be.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Sorry, I might be missing something, but the only options I see under Additional options are:

* Miscellaneous Options
- Automatically parse links in text
- Automatically retrieve titles from external links Fancy Media Options
* Use Fancy media options (for posting videos)

Don't have a solution but now I can see the print design I Think it's safe to say it's not a design/software problem which leaves either the printer or the substrate.

I would try reducing the total height of the same design but maintain the same length then reprint on the same substrate & once complete compare the two & see if the printing starts to fail at the same point along the length of the design, if it lasts longer before it starts to get jagged I would suspect an ink supply issue, if it fails at the same point again I would load a sheet of the substrate in reverse direction & see if it starts off jagged & then improves towards the end.

Thank you very much for the help.
I tried new transparencies and it came out perfect!

Hopefully this will help someone else in the future
