    Check very carefully under the print head carriage ! You get a buildup
    of debris directly under the carriage. Set the printer so that you can
    remove the cartridges. Turn off the power so the machine doesn't try
    to move the carriage. Use a folded kitchen wipe (Non Fluffy) and insert
    it under the print head carriage. Then move the carriage back and
    forth a few times so that you are wiping it. You may have to use some
    isopropyl on the wipe to get it all off.

    That should sort it for a long while. In my experience its worse with
    cheaper paper that produces more dust.
