All colors are showing up in print much lighter than what they did when I replaced cartridges in Nov. 2017

I noticed in printing documents that all colors are showing up in print much lighter than what they did when I replaced cartridges in Nov. 2017.

In particular (see attached doc for comparison):

  1. dark yellow/orange printed as light yellow
  2. black text showing up pretty pale
  3. dark blue showing up as light blue

What I have done so far:

  1. All 4 cartridges replaced back in Nov. 2017. OK after this
  2. Today I tried to replace cyan and black cartridges => same issue
  3. Cleaning and calibrating as per manual
  4. Visually inspected all 4 cartridges, nothing found

Setup: Checked both on WIN XP SP3 and WIN7 SP1 – same issue

Any suggestions?
