Unfortunately, all the fixes I've done including cleaning the printhead numerous times along with aligning it, installing and uninstalling the printer do no good.

The printhead may be damaged. There are kits you can use to "clean" the printheads. The one with a clip-on syringe works pretty well.

Sometimes print heads get clogged for no apparent reason at all, sometimes there's air bubbles in the printhead that dry out the ink, or sometimes paper dust gets adhered to the printhead.
