Epson Epson Stylus Color 1520

Epson 1520 image defect Epson techs please assist

I'm trying to restore perfect print quality to an old Epson Stylus color 1520. Removed and cleaned both printheads, flushed completely and reinstalled (have done this several times now) Black images printed have tiny splatter ink dots on right side of image. It seems the jets are open too long as carridge moves toward home position. What is strangest is that I was able to get some perfect prints initially and then developed tiny whiskers of ink dots along right side of printed image. Any suggestions would be helpful. It's not an alignment issue. Maybe flat cable from carridge? Any experienced techs that have seen this please post. Thanks
