I bought an iP8720 a couple of months ago and it printed beautiful photos right out of the box. It sat unused until yesterday when I tried printing again and the photo quality was unbelievably poor, looked like an Impressionist painting effect with splotchy ink distribution and fuzzy details. Original image and photo print images below, sorry they're small. Everything is Canon: semigloss paper, original ink that came with the printer, and even my camera. Nothing different with Win XP computer. Tried running the cartridge cleaning utility and the test print looked good. Photo prints remain HORRIBLE. Please help.
