Thank you
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok done , and the print head symbol is still flashing
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.
Thanks It is the print head that has faulted, we have ruled out all other causes for this I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know. And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
