Hi, I'm Sadique. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

It's a problem with the printhead because the printhead is the part of the printer which puts ink on the paper.

As of first step we will try cleaning the printhead.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 9 months ago.

Take a paper towel and fold it into 4 turns and make it little thick. Then add little rubbing alcohol to it and then place it in the path of the printhead carriage. Then move the printhead carriage over it a few times.
