Hi There
Try this first it may clean up the heads, if not this then it can be the printer driver got a virus or needs reinstaling.

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Paper misfeeding on one side but printer keeps printing with no paper


Look for any foriegn objects or old torn paper from an earlier jam. Something is either obstructing or mis-guiding the paper. If nothing is found, use a can of compressed air to blow thr paper intake area out, then test print again.

If still not solved, use a cottom swan soaked in alcohol to scrub clean the rubber paper pickup roller. Over time it gets slick from paper dust and the paper will notget grabbed evenly, causing it to skew as it's pulled in.
