I think you are a knowledgeable person from your description (thank g-d). It sounds to me as if there is no current getting to the heads heaters therfore she is not firing any ink. This can be a break in the ribbons cables and the fix is to fit a new carriage assy. of course it could be the head itself. Remove and refit the head (no power of course) I reckon if you replaced both then it would fix your problem.

Good luck and thanks for posting your problem.

Either pay $40 to $60 to have a qualified technician trouble-shoot the printer, or spend about the same amount to buy a new printer.

Or, if the printer is still under "warranty", then "exercise" the warranty.

Printer not printing. Printer goes through the motions, but nothing on paper. Ink cartridges are full

1. Make sure plastic (all of it) is not on the cartridge contacts.
2. Wipe the print area (bottom of cartridge) with damp cloth, If does not work, try warm water - even letting it stand for a few minutes.
3. Go to the printing services and service the device (this function let the printer try to clear any clogged areas that may exist.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.

Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Printer dock won't print. Says ''no Paper,'' but is full

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
