Pixma TS5055, black and dark colors appear with spots




I have a Pixma TS5055. 

It prints fine on matte paper, but when I try to print on glossy paper, the black and generally dark parts have dots all over them. In those places the picture is also still wet when it comes out of the printer. I heard that one of the two black inks is not compatible with glossy paper, (not sure if that's true, read it on a forum) but I do have all my settings on glossy. There are several glossy options, I've tried all of them. 


If any of you have any idea what I could do, I would appreciate it. I'm pretty desperate at this point, I can print only light things on glossy paper, otherwise there are dots all over it. 


Thank you in advance.
