Use a Q-tip and a little water to wipe the wiper assembly on the right side of your machine. Unplug the printer when the carts are in the middle and look to the right with a flashlight. The wipers are supposed to wipe excess ink from the bottom of the printhead.

I had the same issue and resolved it by downloading the World war 3 black gold 1.2 Patch - install this and you should be fine. I will still ask you to select a resolution but it will actually let you now.
I got mine from here http://www.shacknews.com/file/454/world-war-iii-black-gold-12-patch
You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your pictures which have been overexposed so much that all detail has been lost. If printed, they will show up as pure white, without a hint of shading.
The "correct" fix is to reduce the exposure by using exposure compensation to bring back the details. Blocked-up shadows (the same thing at the other end of the brightness scale, where dark objects go pure black) is generally considered less harmful to the final image.
That was the long answer. The short answer is: Press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views available.
a 99% chance your ink cartridge is empty or dried out and blocked. If the printer has had plenty of regular use then I'd go for a new cartridge. If it's a new cartridge which hasn't been used for a few months then it's more than likely a dried out and blocked cartridge. A small trick I've used for years is to get a dried out cartridge reworking is to run your water tap with a small but steady stream of warm water running in a continuous flow (not gushing and not dribbling) over the golden patch on the underside of the cartridge. When you first start you will notice the water run off will be black (if it's the black cartridge of course) then it will clear and when it finally starts to loosen and clear the blocked jets the water will start running black again. At this point stop, gently pat dry the underneath of the cartridge and put it back into the printer. Now print out a page of text. A few jets may still be blocked and you may have to print 6 to 10 pages until it completely clears but it will leave you with a printout like a new one at no cost. I've told this to many friends and the only people it never worked on were the people who had empty cartridges to satrt with.
Some Techs may frown at this but I assure you it works and there is simply no other way to get printing again unless you replace the cartridge. Just remember not hot but warm water in a gentle flowing continuous stream. and only on the gold patch on the underside of the cartridge. It's not a myth it works. I've been doing it for years and always kept it off the net until now.
From my own experience I had a crack in mine. I sanded the area I wanted to patch. I bought a fiberglass repair kit from the hardware store. I mixed the hardener with the resin and applied it without the cloth. Make sure you have good ventilation and don't get it on your hands. After it dried I sanded it smooth it didn't look the best so I hit with a little spray paint. I have since replaced the tub but it held until I was ready to do that. A couple of years. Hey if this helps give me a vote please.

Look on the bottom of the rectangular motor housing for the ice maker. This is the white box that holds the front end of the ice tray. In the past, this was normally a small patch of black 'runner' that covered the switch and helped kkep moisture out.
If you cannot locate it by feel, try using a small mirror and a flashlight to help you locate it.
