The bad news is that when I went to print out, the left-right corruption was much worse. When I plug it in, and turn it on, the lights start blinking, All connections seem to be fine.

I had too download from another place to get the driver and the printer eventually worked, with out some features. Test the cartridges in another printer, if possible, dp the same settings.
