    Could you please make a 5 second video demonstrating the problem?  You can push the print head around by hand.


    You should get in touch with your reseller.  The company that sold you the printer.  Tell them you are good with glue.  Try to find a solution that doesn't involve shipping the whole printer as the shipping services can bend your entire printer into a parallelogram so anytime you ship a printer it is at great risk.


    But if you insist, then shipping the whole printer is usually an option.
