with faulty ink cartridges. There is probably at least one identical working
printer in your school location that you can "borrow" ink cartridges from
to test in your printer. Be careful not to touch the metal foil contacts
on the cartridges when handling them.
Be certain that the printer cable is firmly connected at both ends.
If networked, be certain that the computer sharing the printer is turned
on before the others in your room.
Also check that the network cable is plugged into the computer.
Remove and reinsert \ replace the ink cartridges.
Remove the paper from the feed tray and reinsert it.
Turn the printer off and then back on.
