I have had my printer for a while (1 1/2 years or so) and I notice that when i print something, the quality of my print is very blotchy/blurry, and ink is not evenly distributed. (ie, some words are of a lighter shade/ aren't even legible because of low ink saturation than other parts of the page.) , I have done all levels of automatic print head cleaning and my ink cartridges still have ink in them, i'm not sure if i should try to take apart my printer apart and clean the main print head or not. just looking for advice/guidance.

Load plain paper into the input tray.
Search Windows for your printer model name, and then click the printer name in the list of results.

A Print Quality Diagnostic page prints.
