Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

At this point, you need to perform a manual cleaning..You can order the kit at the link below including instructions.

If that doesnt work, consider replacing the printer. You can get a used / refurbished model on this page for 35$ plus 15$ shipping.. This way youd be able to use any ink tanks you already have.
