I hate to tell you this Ursula, your heads may be dying. I had this same problem, and the smudging was oddly related to adjacent image content. Look at your smudges with a loup, if they are actually made of tiny dots the printer is putting dots out there that should be in the image area. For mine it required some head replacements. No amount of cleaning, even under the heads, had any effect. Hope yours is not the same problem, but I really doubt it's the ink.
