Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your printer. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket) as well as your wifi router and power off your computer.

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the wifi router then the printer, turn it on and start your computer and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

Can you remove the ink from the printer then power it off.

then using a Q-Tip with cleaning alcohol (or warm water if you do not have any), clean out the areas where the ink goes in.

Then use a damp cloth and wipe down the inside of the printer.

Once done, let it dry for 10 minutes

Then put the ink back in, power it on and tell me if it then prints correctly please

This will also allow you to see if any foreign objects are in the printer which may cause this.

Better but still not right. Repeat the process?
Curious that it was fine on the old cartridge but not the new one
Expert:  Richard replied 17 days ago.

90% ok. On a hunch, I then printed same text again. 100%.
any further advice? clean again once a year? Printer is obviously old but has done us good service.
Expert:  Richard replied 17 days ago.

yes, regularly clean it please, every 6 months is best to do it.
