HP 5660 prints grays, but not solid black

HP Recommended
HP Envy 5660
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer will not print solid blacks, though it seems to do grays fine.  This is no matter what device I print from, so not a driver issue. I've cleaned cartridges and replaced, etc.  Here's a portion of a print test page for example. You can see the gradients are fine, but it won't print solid black.
