Hello Richard the ink problem was light and is now quite dry. I have done what you suggested above with the print head but the error message is still there and printing does not work.
It is the internal mainboard that has faulted.
This is now confirmed
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.
Thank you

Thank you Richard unfortunately I am out of guarantee.
ok, it is not worth paying for the repair, due to how cheap printers are currently, I would advise you purchase a new replacement
