Artisan 1430 occasionally prints washed out images

Oct 16, 2019
I've had this printer for many years and have been very happy with it until a few days ago. I'm printing photos on matte paper and occasionally a print will be washed out. See the bottom examples in these shots. I'm using the same print settings for all the shots. Half the time they come out good and half bad. I'm wasting paper and ink. I've done all the nozzle checks and cleaning. Any idea what would be causing this? Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Unrelated: When printing 13 x 19 I frequently get only four or five inches of printing and then the rest blank. That's a REAL waste of paper and ink.
