Hi Richard,sorry for the delay but being a novice at this computer lark it takes a bit of time.I uninstalled and then reinstalled did a test page but now back to only a flag in corner of page.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
That's no problem Dave

Is the printhead that has failed, we have confirmed this now as we have removed software as the cause, and you have done the nozzle check and clean.

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It 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
