What is the issue your facing with your Officejet on Windows 10?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
lets just go through what ever you can do now

Ok what is the issue you're facing?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
to start the lights on the front are flashing. i took out the print head and cleaned it and it then started to flash.

Right so the print head was removed cleaned, refitted into the cradle, ink reinstalled, and the printer lights kept on flashing?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
are you still there ?

Yes I am awaiting you to confirm what I have said above..

Thanks I did,n see your reply at the topi have just cleaned them all again and waiting to see what effect it has done. currently it is just going through a lot of cranks and movements
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
it has stopped now. shall I try to print?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
what do you think James ?

Sorry for the delay in responding, yes please not try and print your issue was most likely the print head not being seated correctly.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
every thing seems to be acting ok now. is it worth trying to print now or what do you suggest

Yes place a couple of test prints, colour as well as black and white.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Hi James again. the print in colour is not at all good. there are lines of yellow and blue across
the print

Then it points to a faulty print head, you could try and clean it again you can buy a flushing liquid but from my experience print head cleaning only works 25% of the time.

How old is the printer?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I think about 10 years

Your probably better at looking at buying a new printer then, typical life expectancy of a printer is 10-12 years.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
it was working very well when your man changed the setting last time. would it have any problems on my new computer whichis windows 10 as against the last one it was connect to was windows 7 or 8. Ta one time i got a message on your site say the the usb on this was a usb3 and the prrinter was a usb2.but when a checked with curry,y they said the every thing will work on 3 and2. any idears

Yes Curry's are correct you dont need to worry about USB versions.

Your issue is a print head issue, not software related.

A new print head would cost around £100.
