Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I've had this exact problem! You will need regular rubbing alcohol and some q-tips and some canned air (if you've got it handy since it's kinda expensive). Remove all of your print cartridges and then remove the print head. Turn the print head upside down and clean back and forth with a q-tip dipped in alcohol. Don't use the same q-tip too much, if one gets icky after a few passes, use a clean one. Then, while your cover is still up, run a clean q-tip dipped in alcohol over the gold prongs that the print head sits next to. Be careful, the prongs will "pull out" the q-tip so pass over them gently. Spray the connections with canned air, making sure there are no loose fibers around. I sprayed the whole inside. After I did exactly all of this, it worked-PERFECTLY. I have no idea which little step worked. Good luck!!

Try a "hard restart"', which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
Hope these suggestions help you out.
