as you have been filling you own cartridges for a few months it may be the case that it is time to replace the cartridge/s.There is a limit to how may times anyone should refill a cartridge.

They may just be showing signs of nozzle wear or may be plugged with a little dry ink or debris in certain areas. It may work with a line test etc.but not on a larger print job when a certain colour is required.

May be worth trying a few more cleaning cycles than normal.
