I've noticed that there are ink spills inside the printer affecting papers on the tray. Also sometimes the ink cartridge cannot move,must be cause by the printer being dirty?

9 out of 10 times this is caused by dirty contacts. It can also be caused by some electrical charge getting to the paper as it goes through the printer or a faulty (weak) power supply board. Your first check should be to remove all of the consumables and clean all metal contacts with an alcohol wipe or similar. Hope this helps.

if you have new print head assembly and cartridges, and waited for flow, and the printer is MECHANICALLY sound (not dropped or G-force damaged), then all that is left is improper cartridge installation. You may not have the cartridges fully inserted/, or maybe they are not PROPERLY inserted. Look for a snap when in place (and no wiggle). I suspect this is your problem, because one symptom you mention, ink accumulation INSIDE the head/cartridge cradle, is VERY rare -unless the cartridge is inserted improperly. The cartridges/head assemblies have VERY good seals to prevent leakage. Unless the o-rings/seals are damaged, leakage outside the seal just does not happen at all, normally.
*New head/cartridge installs can take several hours -sometimes even a day in cold weather, for small iP90-like printers to saturate the heads -and print.

It could be both. Leaky ink can be a problem and that probly is the problem. But, make sure your rollers are clean and cheak that your ink is not leaking. I hope this has helped you.

(1) Most photopaper is made to be printed on one side only. Check to see that you are printing on the correct side. (2) You mention new cartridges. Are they the same brand as cartridges you've used before? If they're a different brand, you may want to try whatever worked before.
