The printer has the capability of making a "wireless" connection to your wireless router,
so that you can print to the printer from any computer connected (either with an Ethernet cable, or wirelessly) to your router.

Procedures for clearing clogged inkjet cartridges and printheads

Procedures for clearing clogged inkjet cartridges and printheads

The following information may not apply to all inkjet printers, but it will sometimes save your cartridges, and might salvage the printer also.

Here's a trick I've used with some success. Depending on the cartridge, this is for carriage mount styles like HP, Lexmark, Canon (current models) and others. Remove the cartridge and soak the printhead portion, where the tiny jets are located, in a small shallow dish with clear alcohol. Try swooshing it around a bit, and you may start seeing a discharge of the ink color you're using. You may need to repeat the process more than once. Let it soak some more, dry it off and reinstall.

If the old ink is dissolved, then the cartridge may start printing, and it will be a little "weak" until the alcohol is mostly evaporated or used up. This is not a guarantee to work all the time, but it's worth a try. The "tank" style cartridges like Brother uses are another story, since they are reasonably priced containers with no printhead.

They have a tubular system feeding ink to the printhead on the carriage. Either the printhead nozzles or the tubes could become clogged, and require factory service, or a pretty elaborate set of disassembly procedures to clear the blockages. I have had mixed results, refilling an empty cartridge with alcohol, and allowing that cartridge to try feeding the tubular system, and dissolving the dried ink. If it succeeds, then simply install a new or known good cartridge, and the problem may be solved.

I hope these tips will give you a chance to get your printer and/or inkjet cartridges operating again.

Regards, Bill
