I switched to another brand of printer. Clogged heads, clogged feed tubes, etc Common enough if you don't use a printer daily. I bought a laser printer for black and white text output, toner is much cheaper than ink and a Canon inkjet printer for color when needed, my choice of a Canon was based on a user swapable print head and a super price on a discontinued model.
just take out the ink cartridge and clean off the bottom of it, that is the print head. you may need to clean under the plastic piece that it sits in. That may have hair or fuzz on it that is dragging across print.
Did you run the head cleaning process in the settings?

First, clean the LED heads with a lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (the LED heads are the attachments on the underside of the lid when you open your printer; four of them for each color). Try printing something after doing that. If it's still an issue just with black, try switching the black and magenta drums/toner (keeping them locked together). The drum w/ toner cartridge simply pulls straight up and out, no switches or locks to flip. Then print a page of text; which will output from the printer in magenta. If that looks okay, then it may be an issue with your black drum and needs to be replaced.
