This maybe down to a faulty cartridge replace cartridges and then retry. You can try the following to obtain a test sheet.

  • Turn on printer
  • Hold power button down (While printer is on)
  • Press the paper feed button once
  • Release both buttons
This will printout a test sheet but I really do think that it is a faulty cartridge problem.

Hope I could help
Thanks J
