bottom of photo is beginning of print, notice light gray band, almost like a shadowIMG_3945.JPG, which extends across the width of the paper (42").

Print Diagnostic image shows some need for head alignment in  a couple colors, but does not explain the gray band.  Printed on Glossy photo paper.

Your printheads looked fine to me, all colors there.

First, do clean all printheads on image quality menu, then

 

Do a printhead alignment, also color calibration.

 

If all passed & your printer should be in perfect working condition.

 

Use proper icc profile for your media loaded & color calibrated. Otherwise you could get unmatched colors, brightness etc etc.
