Canon MG5650 Page Black Text Double Printing - blurry text


My canon printer MG5650 is double printing text when using the Pigment Ink.  If I force it to use the Dye Ink (i.e. Photo Mode) the printout is sharp so surely it cannot be the Encoder (timing) Strip otherwise all printing would be the same whatever ink is used.  Can anyone tell / suggest what could be causing the problem?


Note, other Canon printers have suffered the same problem but also when people answer they always point to the Encoder Strip being dirty, usually caused by a paper jam.

see  - Canon Nozzle Check.jpgnote the person reporting the problem specically mentions the black ink.  - this post shows exacly the issue I have and only shows the double printing with the pigment ink and not the dye ink.
