If it does well dont bother it'd cost you far more to even get a tech to look at it than to buy a new printer.

Check the paper guides are set correctly and that theres not any paper still in there and goto controlpanel/printers/.....right clik it and then clik properties and then somewhere in the printer properties might be a 'maintenance' function .....run the 'print head alignment'....

It is still under warranty but they could say it did it, pulling the paper out cause the bit of paper was really jammed up one side and had to pull quite hard to get it out. I just did an alligment and had made no difference

Warranties don't cover paper jams or the effects of them
