Banding appears in prints from Lightroom Classic and Epson p3800

I've been struggling with a problem when printing A2 prints, namely that faint banding appears toward the left edge of the paper. 
Having checked every aspect of the printer more than once and spent hours talking to Epson support, who eventually suggested printing with Epson's Print Layout software, and the banding problem disappeared, so I don't think it's a hardware problem (I've been through absolutely *everything* on the printer that can be cleaned, aligned, squirted, purged and wiggled).

The problem also occurs with Photoshop, (which I discovered when testing which other packages might cause this) but I don't really care about that as I only print from LR Classic. 

I'm aware that lots of us have printing issues when using LR Classic on a Mac, but is anyone else having this specific problem, or know of a fix?
I've added a photo to show the banding produced in PS and LR but not in EPL.
