HP Inkjet L7780 fails to print all of the black text, just top and bottom

HP Recommended
HP Inkjet L7780 All in One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The printer started just printing the top and bottom of text, (black), every 7 or so lines.

I have replaced the black cartridge and print head. Ran clean print head and alignment from the tools menu, but the fault remains.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated

It's visible in the lower black block a huge part of the black isn't printed.

Since you run the cleaning cycles without fixing the print quality you have a defective KY printhead.

I replaced the BY print head with new genuine new HP brand replacement when the fault arose. It did not correct the fault in any way. When that did not work I then replaced the Black Cartridge, which also did not improve matters.

 

I guess the replacement new KY print head could faulty?

 

When I ran the Self Test Diagnostic Page the BY print head is shown as installed on the 8 July 2020. Warranty date 14 May 2021

Accumulated ink usage 1 ml. So it is being recognised as a new part.
