horizontal streaks

Officejet Pro L7680 All-in-One Printer C8189A

Windows 7


I get horizontal streaks in any blue, green or purple printing.  And it has gotten so bad I can't tell the correct color of items I am printing. I have used HP cartridges and HP paper and other high quality paper but it keeps getting worse.  


I have cleaned the printheads and run the procedures in the menu to no avail.
