Colors printing dull after installing new ink cartridges

I've been doing a lot of art printing lately, so when my printer ran low I refilled it with 63XL cartridges, both black and color. This was the result - the colors are accurate to what is on my screen. However, after many head cleanings and alignments, I could not get the streaks to disappear completely. So I bought replacements.

The second set of ink cartridges, both black and color, after also being cleaned and aligned, produce over saturated colors. Also, after multiple cleanings and alignments, the black kept producing a weird glitch:

Not knowing what else to try, I again replaced (just) the black cartridge, thinking it had something to do with its inability to align. However, the colors print in the same over saturated format.

I've done all the things suggested on other posts - clean heads, align cartridges, use different paper, I'm using the exact same files (no changes made to them), carefully cleaned the cartridge heads. Please help.

Thank you for the suggestion. After cleaning the cartridge, doing 2 head cleanings and another alignment, this did not solve my issue
