Officejet 5740 missing letters on printed sheets

Firstly I do not use my printer very often but today when I printed a sheet from a pdf file it had parts of the text missing, letters not complete, I tprinted a couple more after aligning print heads and also cleaning but the page was the same albeit missing bits were not in same places.

I read somewhere about trying different or new cartridges but as I have an Instant Ink subscription I do not have any until ink is low enough for HP to send me some it isn't possible to try this.

I have attached one page to show missing bits...

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for the response. Try making a standalone copy in black and color to identify the defective ink cartridge.

 

Keep me posted.
