    streaks in the nozzle check or broken pattern? Did you actually clean the maintenance station/wiper/print head with a cleaning swab?

    Soak the heads with a piece of lint free material on the cap top and saturate it with cleaning solution. Park the heads and let it soak for a bit then do a normal cleaning then a nozzle check. I have soaked mine for up to an hour or more at times. This softens any ink that has set up on the head. I would believe your cap station is not sealing with the heads.
