Thank you for that information.

I know this one well lol.

The print head is failing and needs to be replaced. Its something you can do yourself with my help and you might not even need me as the new print head comes with very clear instructions for replacement which is actually quite easy;-)

You can get that from Best Buy and Staples etc, but this one they may need to special order for you.

This part is definitely worth replacing to save the rpinter

I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.

There is NO cost to rate Kindly;-)

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day!
