Thank you for the reply. At the moment, all the cartridges are recognized, but the output is completely out-of-alignment. When I print text and select "Fine", which is a "double-hit", the output is almost akin to a drop-shadow. Re-alignment in either direction doesn't help. As for ink damage, the cartridges haven't been touched. And, don't use the printer hardly at all (unfortunately). My thought is there is something amiss internally, with the electrical/computer system.
