It looks more like a head clog to me. Looks like your yellow channel for sure and possible magenta. Do a nozzle test and compare it to what it should be and this will determine how much more you have to work on the head to get it unclogged.

You need to print a nozzle pattern. Look in your user's manual to see how to do this, it will show if you have clogged heads. As for the shadowy look, it appears maybe your print head is too far away from your shirt when printing.

3-4 mm should be fine. I would check your nozzle test and if everything is firing ok, try printing in a higher resolution. It appears that your blacks aren't deep enough which could indicate not enough ink being laid down.

That should be high enough. I would look at the nozzle test and see where you are with head clogs etc.

As a side note, any time you have colors not printing correctly, do a nozzle test. This will show you the simplest way of determining if it's a head clog or something else.

Yeah, that's pretty bad. It looks like you are missing 2 channels completely and you have too many channels dropped out of 2 to 3 others. If you have any solution to soak the head in while parked in the capping station, I'd recommend doing that. If you don't have a solution that came with it, you can use straight ammonia with no dyes or perfumes. Pour some in the capping station and let the head park over it for about an hour, then run a head clean and a nozzle test to see where you are.
