I repair, or at least, try to repair ink jet printers. The problem of why many inkjet printers have a short life, is that they do get gummed up with ink goo. There is a home position where a large sponge soaks up ink from the print head as a way to purge the ports. Over time (like a year or two), this sponge and the surrounding carriage assembly, gets covered in half-dried up ink. The print head passes over this area and inevitably gets gooed up. Instead of trying to replace a spring. May as well replace the printer.

Press Test Page button on ur printer to check if there is issue with the software or printer.

If print test page is returning a printed page it means there is some problem in software communication with the driver.

It sounds like you ink cartridge is electrically bad; you can run the diagnostic 'tap 41' test to confirm. The HP 31xx printer 'access procedure' will be very similar to this HP Fxxx series access procedure:

Good luck:

If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printer cannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Turn the printer on and off. Disconnect the usb connections and restart your PC.
Turn the printer on and try printing.
Check the cartridges.They maybe low on ink or even dry.
If the cartridges are fine,remove the black cartridge from its slot on the right and check its nozzles for damages.Make sure the plastic tape usually on it when new has been fully removed.Slide the cartridge back into the slot and push it forward till it clicks.Please do the same with the other cartridge.
Remember to replace any used cartridges.

Hope this helps.Thanks!
