Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with the best answer possible.

It is a problem with the printhead because the printhead is the part of the printer which puts ink on the paper.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 14 days ago.

As of first step, let's try manually cleaning the printhead.

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.
