HP Officejet 4655 Black ink skipping horizontal lines

HP Officejet 4655
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently moved and took my printer out of storage it had been in for 7 months. Whenever I try to print something, the colored portion comes out correctly, but the black ink leaves out entire horizontal lines, creating a repetitive horizontal pattern ink-free. I've tried cleaning the cartridges several times to no avail. The color works just fine, though any picture I print still looks like it has stripes where black ink would have been used. I even tried replacing black ink, using a genuine HP cartridge. What could be the problem, and how would I remedy it.
