Hello and thanks for your question. I look forward to assisting you today with the best answer possible.

Do you get any error message while trying to print?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
There is no error message. It moves the paper through, but no print on paper.
Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 9 months ago.

This error is always related to the printhead because the printhead is the part of the printer which puts ink onto the paper from the ink cartridges.

As of first step we will try cleaning the printhead.

I will give you a video manual which will help you to clean your printhead.

Please let me know if it doesn't helps, I will suggest you manual cleaning.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I tried the cleaning function a few times and I partially got a couple of lines but that is it. Can I manually clean them?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I have been through the process of automatically cleaning the heads and aligning them several times. I now get some print but also broad horizontal streaks of no print. See scan of one of the print pages that is attached.

Take a paper towel and fold it into 4 turns and make it little thick. Then add little rubbing alcohol to it and then place it in the path of the printhead carriage. Then move the printhead carriage over it a few times.
