The black ink does not print some lines

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried running your printer's self-cleaning cycle? (Sometimes you have to run this several times to see results.)

How do I do that

Technician's Assistant: The Printer Technician will be able to walk you through that. Have you tried wiping down the metal contacts on your printer and cartridges?

No, it is a new cartridge

I did what you said and still the same problem with the black ink
Technician: Mike Taylor, Technician replied 1 month ago

Ok so you have done 3 total print head cleans AND and alignment?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Technician: Mike Taylor, Technician replied 1 month ago

From what im seeing, this SHOULD be an alignment issue.. This issue WILL correct itself but you must do the alignment and the head cleaning multiple times UNTIL the prints are perfect....
