Printing with HP Deskjet 4400

HP Deskjet 4400
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer says I have ink but it is getting more and more faded with each use. The area at the top and bottom of the page are the worst. I have cleaned and reinstalled my cartridges and ran troubleshooting guide. Does this printer's sensor on low ink sometimes go bad? Other ideas on troubleshooting? Thanks
