    until the black test print looks as neat and tidy as the magenta one the black prints will be poor. age or poor maintenance is the problem. difficult to see from the pics but what material is that it looks saturated.

    As Chris says, that K head needs sorting out or replacing before you’ll get decent prints. Even at high quality with v pass. Does the nozzle test improve or change at all with powerful cleans?
