No I haven't tried cleaning it. Which bits and what with? Being 65 and NOT a tech person at all I wouldn't know where to start unless someone tells me! Then I'm quite capable...
Replacing a part is probably cheaper than replacing the whole printer, and I know a man who could probably do it for me, so no problem there.
Have cleaned it and replaced two cartridges. The computer still says it's offline. Hasn't started flicking - yet...
Photocopying is fine
Not blank photocopying.
Started printing lots of blank sheets individually when there was nothing in the print queue. Had to switch it off to stop! Hasn't done that again yet.
Also failed to complete a scan, twice. Said it was cancelling but didn't complete that either.
USB cable. I've never activated the wireless function cos printer lives next to computer.
