imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 Blotchy blues

I'm having trouble getting usable prints lately from my PRO-1000. I get this blotchy blue (see bottom of attached photo), it doesn't show as out of gamut in Lightroom. It's happened with a few different papers and settings. The print also looks quite bad up close but I don't have a good comparison. The source image is 45MP from a Hasselblad X1D

Details of this print:

* Ran head cleaning

* Ran print head alignment with Hahnemuehle Photo Rag 188

* Printer software: 2.0.60

* MacOS Big Sur 11.3.1

* Printed from Lightroom Classic 10.3

* Shown print is Hahnemuehle Photo Rag 308 8x5x11

* Settings: LR Manages color with Hahnemuehle PhotoRag profile, Relative Intent, Print Sharpening: Standard, Media Type: Matte, Print Resolution 240ppi

* Media Type: HIghest Density Fine Art Paper

I would really appreciate any tips of other maintenance to do, or settings to change. I used to get fantastic results from the printer but it's been a while and I'm trying to get it back running well.
