I have had a reliable experience with my G4200 printer until recently, when it started to skip entire lines of text when printing.
I have tried several approaches to fix this issue:
nozzle check (black is missing the middle portion)
cleaning and deep cleaning
cleaned the encoder strip
Nothing seems to work. Please help. Thank you!

If this is not a problem with ink delivery / clogged , mis-aligned or defective printhead, I would suggest you have a look at he printers timing strip.

Thanks, the timing strip is the same as the encoder strip, which I cleaned. What is the fix for a faulty print head?

This is a ink delivery issue. The timing strip would apply if there were ghosting, or mis-aligned characters. The complete absence of ink and confirmation that no black exists on the nozzle test pattern indicates a delivery issue.
