Hi. My name is***** your for your question and the opportunity to assist.

It's likely just a setting that needs to be changed. Can we do

a screen sharing session and go through them?

Have you run a nozzle check on the printer? From the printer display click Setup (the little tools icon)

Use the arrow keys to select Maintenance press OK.

select Nozzle Check and press OK and press one of the start buttons.

If the page prints and the nozzle check pattern
is complete, the product is operating properly.
Any operation problem you may have
could be caused by your computer, cable, software,
or selected settings.
