Lately, my deskjet black printouts look like they've been printed TWICE over on the same line. ANd they are misaligned as well. So the same words have like a detached shadow effect and looks ugly and horrible. Its impossible to read because of this.
Cleaning the heads work for one single page after, but then it goes back to normal.
HP solution centre reports everything as normal.
I have used ALL the tools in there, but the problem persists.
I even bought another cartridge but the same thing happens.
Whats the problem here?

You've checked that the cartridges are sitting correctly in the carriage, and there's no debris on the cartridge contacts?

cartridges are perfectly in. No debris on the cartridges or the heads/contacts. I've even tried new ones. But the same thing happens. Only for the black, not the colors.
What else can I do?

It does not bleed. The colors are fine. its like reading without glasses, the words are being printed twice, on top of each other. The cartridges clean utility has been used many times. Does not help. The extended self report is fine. Its only words that this happens to, not pictures.
