How to fix problem, ink jets out towards back of inner printer instead of down on to paper

I would not worry about the ink on the inside of the printer. This is almost certainly just waste ink that has splattered here during printing/cleaning. The printhead is forced to face directly down inside the printer and if it was not this would cause the cartridge to be rejected and stop any printing.

If your pages are coming out blank I would recommend taking the following steps:

  1. First off please run any printer head cleaning cycles available from your printer software and check the quality of your prints.
  2. Fold a piece of kitchen tissue or any other non fibrous tissue and dab it under a tap to make a small damp patch. For best results make sure the water is warm.damp-paper-tissue.jpg
  3. Take the cartridge out of the printer and hold the damp patch over the printhead for 30-60 seconds.hp-300.jpg hp-300-on-tissue.jpg
  4. You should now hopefully have a small ink soaked patch on the tissue with traces of all the relevant colours. ink-patch.jpg
  5. Then wipe the printhead several times on the dry part of the tissue and you should start to see the colours come through. wipes.jpg
  6. Reinstall and run one more head cleaning cycle and with any luck you should be ready to print.
Sadly these cartridges are getting on a bit now and it is entirely possible that the printhead of the cartridge has stopped working entirely or is irreversibly clogged. If the cartridge has been purchased recently contact whoever you purchased it from. if not I would recommend buying a new black/colour ink cartridge.

Black ink printing on back of paper

Your paper feed rollers have some black ink contamination: wipe the rollers, all around, with slightly moist tissue paper until there are no more ink evidence coming off the rollers. To moisten tissue, warm water with a very small amount of Windex, dish soap or rubbing alcohol does wonder.
Also clean gently around the bottom of the print head assembly to remove any obvious splatters.
Hope i helps.

Sparks are coming from behind the little revovable plate inside the oven.

these covers are made of a mica material; and tend to get grease-soaked from food splatter. this is where the microwaves pass through. if cover is burned, you will need to replace and clean greasy mess underneath. hopefully, the magnetron is not damaged.

I've tried printing twice and ended up with a paper jam. I cleared it, but also saw what looked like ink splatters inside the printer. I took the cartridges out and cleaned up the splatters and replaced...

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.
