Prints alternate lines after cartridge change

HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One Printer Series - G510
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Just changed the black cartridge and am getting perfect prints BUT alternate lines only!! The printed material comes out double spaced,


I have aligned, cleaned, re-aligned, switched off and on all to no avail.


I have not experienced this problem in the 5 years I've had the printer.


What is my next step/s to go about resolving the problem?
