Hi deadmenrwalking! Welcome to G2G!

Try this link for the driver for your printer. I would suggest you use the Printer Driver v4.5CE since it is for Windows 95 and 98. There are no printer drivers that list it's made for windows ME, but 95 and 98 is the closest and should work. Give it a try, it can't hurt anything.

Thanks Keith, that confirms that the driver I found and pointed out he should try will work since on the page you linked to it shows the folder as called c:\ENGLISH\WINDOWS98. :tazz:

Might be a dumb question but I've had it before. Did you take the protective cover tape off the bottom of the ink cartridges before inserting them?

I really don't know printers that well so it's outta my league now. Hopefully someone else can chime in with a possible solution.

What I would suggest you do is follow any maintenance options it has for cleaning the printer heads, aligning the cartridges, etc... and see if that clears up the situation.

What I can suggest is follow the information on the follow links:Fenor
