Zone8 and thing I want to be very clear about is that the newer printer had the same exact problem immediately after I bought it. So there wouldn't be any build up of ink or anything to clean. I have cleaned the printheads, wiper blade, and capping station when I noticed this happening after the first time I refilled the cartridges. However, the ink still keeps linking and smeared on the next 10 prints. I followed this video:

I feel that it's the "Charging ink" thing that causes this to happen. As soon as I remove the ink and put it back in, the problem comes back.

PenPix....the 2nd printer that I purchased is pretty much the same model as the first but with a scanner (WF7010 and WF7510). Both of them pull paper out of a tray which does give me issues with the paper bulging sometimes. But like I said, the prints are mostly fine after going through the 10 bad sheets. If that was the problem, I'd think that I would keep having the same problems after these first 10 sheets.

I have not tried to use the OEM inks yet. I was planning on it but work was insane the past few months. I will be trying them this weekend.

I will  bet you that the problem will go away with OEM ink carts. Quite often if it is not due to dirty ink accumulation under the print head, wiper, purge sponge unit or the unit itself not properly draining the waste ink out through it. The problem is always attributed to refillable carts or CISS.
