MX870 Black text is looking bad all of a sudden!

Hello all, 

Newly registered, but I have had an MX870 for a long time.  Great printer, but all of a sudden it isn't printing BLACK very well at all.  I did a nozzle looks acceptable.  I did cleanings, even a deep one.  


But when I print BLACK TEXT, the letters are unevenin the coloring and basically unreadable. 


If I have white text on a color background, it looks fine.  If I have blue text, it is okay.  The black is the problem.


Also, I replaced the black ink cartridges.  So it shouldn't be that.


Help?  Please?  I really like this printer.
