are you there?
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 3 months ago

We will try manually cleaning the printhead.

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.

Tell me if it makes any difference to your problem.

Well?? what next
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 3 months ago

In your case, the printer rollers are leaving unwanted marks on your document
As the issue arises only when you use the photo paper. In this case, it takes longer to dry the ink. When it comes out of the roller it leaves marks. We will try setting the waiting time for drying longer or adjust the quantity of the ink.

Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 3 months ago

Do you have the roller cleaning pads?

It was in the box when you bought the printer.

the printer is several years old, I dont think i have them
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 3 months ago

Let's use plain paper to clean the rollers.

I will give you a manual which will help you in cleaning the rollers with plain paper.
