In the printer software there is a function under maintenance to clean the heads.

if it still doesn't work after that, it cheaper to buy a new printer than to fix the head.

been there, done that, have the stretch marks to prove it...

I think you need to do is reinstall you software driver for the print program and start with known parameters. Then you can try to clean the heads. You should get something out of the printer if the heads are plugged it might be a dot or smear on the paper.

This issues looking printer head problem. check the following Steps for cleaning printer head :

Click on the Start button if you have Windows XP. If you have Windows Vista, click the Windows icon that resides in the lower left corner of your computer screen.

Click on "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware." Finally click on "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers."

Right-click on the name of your printer and choose "Printing Preferences." This should open a new window; next look for a tab or button marked Maintenance, or something similar.

Find the button that says "Print heads" or "Clean the Print heads" and click on it. You may be asked to choose which print heads; choose them all if you are. Make sure there is paper and ink in your printer, and that it is turned on ahead of time.

Take out the page your printer has printed and see if there are any grids or boxes missing. If there aren't, then you can just exit the program--your print heads are not clogged. If there are grids missing, then click on the "Cleaning" or similarly worded button.

Once the cleaning process has completed, print another page to be sure that your print heads are no longer clogged. If they are still clogged, repeat Steps 1-5 until your printer is printing clearly.

1. You may have a clogged print head.
2. these print head are usually good 4 so many prints then will fail.
3. I heard on tech here swear by placing the head in hot water and unclogging it but I think in the long run that will be a print head replacement. I would contact the manufacturer and ask what cleaning method (manual) they recommend because each print head design is somewhat different whereas the operation is the same.
4. I manually clean with denatured alcohol and a Q tip. Some time works /sometime it doesn't .

Printer won't print


If the ink is too low the head cleaning won't work. Also, I have had to do the cleaning functions several times for it to work. Will it print a test page? Look in to reinstalling a print driver.
