My pixma MP150 prints great color pictures but the text is faded black (not like my old Epson which I gave away). I have tried all the recommended print and paper settings. I'm wondering if a low cost color photo printer typically does not print solid black text.
Any suggestions?

What is the result if you make a screenshot of text then print the image with the printer set to print in black and white

Does the printer have head cleaning and nozzle check

Keith, I tried one more deep cleaning and also changed the font and it seems pretty good.

Thanks - I appreciate your suggestions.
