I spoke to a company called CRC (Tasktron Limited) who are repair specialists for all kinds of business machines. They can be contacted at 01483 776060 or via www.crc-tasktron.co.uk.
After explaining my problem and the amount of use my printer is subject to, they advised me that the printhead was past its useful life. They offered to send me a relacement (£40) which I received today (next day delivery) and fitted in two minutes. Problem solved.

Not printing black


Sounds like the print head needs alignment. If an "auto" alignment can't or won't be run, somewhere in the maintenance section of your printer driver software should be an operation for running a print head alignment and doing adjustments to get the printer aligned for clear printing. First you should check the maintenance program for "head cleaning" and run a couple of head cleaning cycles to see if a clogged head is the problem...
