Canon Pixma TS9521C printing fuzzy lines

My 2 year old printer has just started printing fuzzy lines. I get just a few good lines and the rest are faded and partially gone.  I have run all the test and cleaners with no change.  Can you help?

@pslane1,

Greetings,

This is indeed helpful.  One of your black cartridges appears to be clogged, near empty  or at fault etc.

Run a standard cleaning to see if this helps.  If by chance the cartridge is at/near empty, it should be replaced.

Hi,

Did you print a nozzle check after the cleanings? If so, could you attach a picture of your inks and nozzle check to your reply and we can troubleshoot further.

We look forward to your reply. 

Will do.

Let me know if these will do.

That fixed the problem!  So glad it was that fixable.  Although the cartridge had a good bit if ink, I replaced it.  Thank you much!

shadowsports, tried to print a document tonight and I'm having the same old problem.  For sure it's a black ink cartridge so I am going to replace the other black cartridge as soon as I can.  If you know of any other tricks I can try let me know.  Thanks.
