PIXMA iP7250 Prints outlines of fonts instead of Solid text

Dear Canon community (and maybe service team),
I'm having the same issue with my  Canon Pixima iP 7250  under  MacOS X Catalina 15.10.7 
I allready updated / downloaded all drivers anew that I could find for this model but it still prints outlines.
What are your recommendations?

Greetings,

What drivers version did you download and install?

hey Rick,
Honestly, It’s hard to reconstruct what piece of software associated with this model by Canon I did not download and install. At least I deleted most of it later. But the last actual driver I tried was “iP7200 series CUPS-Printer Driver v.16.40.1.0 (Mac)”
What do you say?

(other pieces of software I tried somewhat randomely were

Greetings,

The 16.40.1.0a is the correct driver for Catalina OS 10.15.7

Do all documents / files print with this behavior, or just certain files or ones from a certain source or location?

Can you provide an image of the text for us please.

this photo has undergone a bit too much contrast enhancement though:
the text is actually rather grey than black, propably because it is a very small font [around 6 - 7 pt] and the outlines 'meet in the middle' leading to the impression of 'normal but grey' letters.

this occurs on PNG, pixel- and vector-PDFs alike.

this (attached) is the printout (greyscale mode) of a screenshot (PNG) of a vector-PDF.
Printing from my partners' Mac OS X 10.13.6 High Sierra leads to similar results.
color prints look regular (if slightly dissaturated)

thank you a lot for looking into this!
