Canon Pixma TS5320 not printing well

My printer ink is new, off brand ink ordered from Amazon a few months ago. I installed the ink, but when I print anything in black or color, nearly half of the page is not printed or the printer spits out a blank sheet with zero ink on the paper. This printer is less than one year old so far, and it only started having this printing problem recently. I cleaned it several times but still does not print well. Also another problem I noticed last week, it was printing double letters- two letters very close next to each other.

Greetings,

Does "recently" mean after you replaced the ink with "off brand (non OEM) inks?

"Double letter" printing is often the result of a dirty timing strip.  Use this article for reference:
