Sounds as though the print nozzles have blocked up due to letting it run dry.

Could try a little swatch of linen or cotton wool soaked in warm water and squeezed almost dry, then leave under the cartridge overnight.

Remove in the morning and try again.

PS leave the cartridge in the printer as well.

tinny76, your welcome, if that does not clear it you can buy a cleaning cartridge. Place that in the printer and run through several cleaning cycles, then print a couple of pages of text, (You wont see any text of course until you put ink cartridge back in). But this also helps to clean the nozzles. J.
