Shadow printing HP Envy 4520

HP Recommended
HP Envy 4520
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I am getting shadowed text in all my printouts, direct from Safari, from Preview, from Word.  I have aligned printer several times.  I have replaced black ink cartridge.  I have adjusted the printing option in each of these applications.  What else can I do?  The image looks fine on screen but shadowed/blurry on paper.  Help!!
