Can you remove the power to the printer and wait 10 minutes,

as requested - problem still there


Can you remove the print cartridges, then remove the print head.
Then soak the print head in warm soapy water and clean it completely, then dry it out.
Once dried, put it back in the printer, put the cartridges in and tell me if it now prints please.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Done it and still message re incorrect printhead.

ThanksIt is the printhead 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
