text in black ink prints double on my Canon Pixma MG 7120


When i print text in black on my MG7120, I am seeing the text printed twice, slightly offset so that it appears like a shadow. This only happens with black ink, gray text and other colors all seem to print fine.


Below is an image of the head alignment page for reference, and a close up of the text to illustrate the issue. I had thought to run an auto printer head alignment, but I cannot find the head alignment sheet that shipped with my printer. Is there anyway to get another (if that is even the issue)?


Thank you!

I have the exact problem. Have you found a solution? 

Neither automatic nor manual head alignment has helped.

Any known solution?  I have used all the cleaning tools within Maintenance, no joy.
