Hi

The feed rollers are probably dirty from paper lint.Try cleaning rollers and everything you can get to on paper path. Use a damp sponge to clean
it.Clear paper jam if any.

Printer was printing fine on my document that includes colorful, heavy coverage of ink. But all of the sudden the printing has lines through it that look like barcodes. They aren't in black, but are in...


sounds like your print head needs cleaning
make sure you have ink in the cartridges

open up your printer properties and look for a maintenance section and choose head cleaning
print a test page to comfirm that the head is clean
some printers need a deep cleaning
when the test page comes out without any imperfections, it should print fine.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Clean the nozzles, align the print heads, turn it off for about an hour. You may need to do this twice, but it works for me.

Color suddenly stopped printing. black is printing fine.


Hello,

Often ink printers will get clogged. This is especially the case if it sits idle for a while between uses, but can happen even with actively used printers. Try running the Dell printer's Head Cleaning Utility.
  • This is usually found by going to:
    Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes
  • Rightclick on your printer's icon
  • Choose Properties off the new menu
  • Click Maintenance
  • From there you should see the controls for Printhead Cleaning.
You should see an improvement after about 2-3 cleaning runs. This does use ink, but may be your best bet to resolve the issue.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Paper jammed


I had exactly the same problem, printer virtually new, printed great for a couple of weeks, then today refused to take paper with E3 flashing. No apparent blockage - all looked clean, tried all the utilities, roller cleaning and plate cleaning, but wouldn't take paper!
Solved it by moving the paper size guide all the way to the left, then folding the top 20mm of a sheet of A4 over and loading it so fold is at the top facing you. This acts as a catcher for anything stuck in the printer. Hold the paper slightly crooked with the left side slightly further into the printer and press the copy button (with nothing in the scanner!). It should draw the paper in now (with some persuasion) and think it is printing (it's blank,of course). Check as the top of the sheet goes in that the fold is still tight and doesn't open up as it feeds in. Lo and behold, mine brought out a 5p piece - printer now prints perfectly!

Will not print


Try using the 'clean cartridge' setting with your printer, this usually forces the ink through the installed cartridges.

Good luck!
