u say u have clean heads.........have u printed a nozzel check too??

its no good just cleaning u need to see what nozzels print like

is ink showing as full or nearly empty ..........this can affect colour, so can printing on cheap poundshop paper, instead of quality stuff.......yes there is a differnece besides the price !!!

one last thing is some compatable carts are not as good as others so dont give as good results

it wont hurt to try another cart in it, think compats are £4 a pair for them or just get a colour, u may have to run a few sheets through to get a true show of the colours.

failing that all i can think of is that there are been seepage between the colours, but i never had that with my epsons.

risk a new ink cart and see how it goes
