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,

That said, I will have someone follow-up on this to ensure you've been helped,

Just in case you don't get back to us, 

have a good day, ahead.

I am an HP Employee
