✔ Best Answer
Remove printer from Devices and Printers and then add it back using existing driver. See if that solves the issue.

What program are you printing from? How are you initiating the print? Have you tried different printing from different programs (Word, Picture Viewer, Browser, etc.)? Have you tried taking a clip of your screen using Snipping Tool, saving it to desktop, reopening it and printing that?

Go to Devices and Printers, right click on printer and select Printing Properties and look at all settings on all tabs in case any are set funny.

Did you clean the cartridge face & the face on the printer with distilled water?
Use a cotton swab.
