Hi Sandeep. No success. Used the J maintenance option exactly as you described then tried cleaning the protusions - but not exactly sure what these are or if i did the cleaning with the cotton buds correctly. Any other help will be greatly appreciated as we need the printer for our village school function tonight
When I used the maintenance J option there was no ink colour on the folded page anywhere - but the ink level is almost full
what else can I do?
Please updated the drivers
how? I am not at all technical
Sorry to take so much of your time
