Have preformed all the cartridge cleaning and alignment procedures and my black print is still too bold and run together

@DJB11 Greetings from the HP Community!
I suggest you change the printer settings to use draft mode and check if that helps:
Please use the below guide to find the printer driver settings:
- Quality Settings or Media menu on the Paper/Quality tab
- Print in Max DPI or Output Quality menus are available on the Advanced tab or in Advanced Options
- Printing Shortcut tab might include shortcuts with a quality setting option.
- For more details: click here
Let me know how that pans out,
