You need to take care of waste ink tank now.

Expert:  Tech_Buddy replied 10 months ago.

Try this as well,This could be one of the reason :-

1) go to control panel/printers & click on the printer. Run as administrator and Cancel all print jobs.

2) open printer front. The ink cartridges automatically center. Flip the little blue print head flippy thingie (I believe that's the technical term) to the right, then back to the left.

3) Press and hold the two buttons on the top of the printer for about ten seconds. Then do it again just because you're frustrated.

4) close the printer. Then go in and do a "Print Head Alignment" from the maintenance menu of the Printing Preferences option.
