I was printing pictures and the first thing that happened

Customer Question

I was printing pictures and the first thing that happened was it would just spit out paper with no print on it. I let it sit until the next day and it worked just fine. Last night I started printing and it worked fine for about 6 pictures and then it started to spit out pictures and the ink was all wet and blurry. Any answers?

Thank you for the information,

These symptoms point to either a clogged/contaminated print head, or a faulty print head (or the logic board that controls it).

You can try going into the setup/maintenance menu on the machine and running the “clean print head” function, if it doesn’t work try it a second time. If it still doesn’t print anything, you’ll need to do a manual cleaning.

Let me know how the built in cleaning works first, and I'll advise further if necessary.
