Streaks while printing.

HP Envy Photo 7155

I just pulled my printed out from under my bed after. A few months of not using it. It’s MAYBE 1 year old. According to my app and the printer display, there is PLENTY of ink. Everything I print it hardly showing up on the paper and what is is VERY streaky. Can’t even read the words on the page. I did a alignment, clean cartridges ect. What is going on?

Streaks while printing.

Get a plastic dish and put 1/4" of hot water in it.  
Remove the cartridge(s) and put the ink printhead down into the water.  
Soak for five minutes, then remove and clean/dry the contacts with a lint free wipe like a coffee filter.
Install back in the printer.

Try printing.

If you do not see any improvement replace both cartridges.
