You're either out of ink or have a bad printhead.


Can you let loose with a little more info?  Ink levles okay?  Last time you changed printheads?  How old are they?  Is it just one color or all colors?  Any air in the lines that you can see?  How many prints have had this problem?  Have you done any troubleshooting steps to isolate the problem?
