2 possible causes: 1 - the ink has started to dry in the cartridges, it has become too thick for the heads to project on the paper correctly and in the end it has clogged the printing heads - replace the cartridges and run several deep cleaning cycles. 2 - hardware fault: either the data cable (the ribbon that connects the print head carrier to the mainboard) has been damaged and it will have to be replaced at a repair shop or the processor of the printer has just failed - this is terminal since it will be cheaper to buy a new one than to replace the mainboard. To make a pretty exact diagnose of the situation take out the cartridges and see if the printer recognizes the situation when you try to print something. If you get an error message then it's the data cable, if the printer is unresponsive then it's the processor - time for a new one.
