Can you remove the power from the printer and wait 10 minutes.
Then connect the power and power on the printer and try to print.
Is it still producing blank prints?
Please let me know

Have just tried and it is still giving completely blank pages. It goes through the motions as if it is printing.

Thanks Chris, it confirms the problem
It is the print head that has faulted. We have ruled out all other causes for it.
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
