Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I think that sounds like a slight contamination of the printheads with waste ink.
Try running a couple of Printhead Cleaning cycles, using the Maintenance functions in your printer's driver (- I am presuming your printer is an Inkjet printer that is connected to a computer that it prints from. If I'm wrong, let me know what maker and model of printer you have, and whether it is connected to a computer or not. Thanks.)
