Hello, I am John Cappucci, Computer Science Engineer. I will be happy to help you.

I would try using a blow dryer on low heat. (with the printer unplugged from the electricity outlet and unplugged from the computer, of course)

Turn it upside down and place it on a dry room (with sun light better)

Wait for 7 or 10 days.

If no luck you will need to buy a new printer.

Please let me know if the issue is solved or not, so we can continue troubleshooting


Thank you
