Several ink based printers have a built in cleaning process. The printer will move the print head carriage assembly to a cleaning station that uses some ink to lubricate/wet the print head to loosen old ink. It lets it soak for a couple seconds and wipes it off. After the cleaning process some printer will do a test page or even calibrate colors. If a print head is too clogged up or the inkjet too clogged the cleaning process will not work then you will need to replace the print heads. May times you can not get replacement print heads for brands beyond Brothers or HP plotters so you may need to obtain a new printer. Printer Repair Service in Miami and Fort Lauderdale FL

When you don't use your ink carts for a while, when you get new ink carts that have been stored in warehouses for a number of months, or when you have refilled a slightly too dry ink cart, the print head nozzles on the bottom of the ink carts get clogged with dried ink. The printer head cleaner menu will not disolve the dried ink. Water will. Try this. Soak the bottom of the clogged ink cart in 1/2 inch of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Blot dry with clean paper towel(you should see the ink color on the towel). Retry.
Note : Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order indicated by the label on the Print Head Holder. The machine will not print if an ink tank is installed in the incorrect position.

2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.
Take out the cartriges and hold one at a time between your forefinger and thumb tightly. Hit your wrists together and see if ink comes out the bottom of the cartrige. Be careful not to mess ink on your clothes or carpet etc. This sharp "shock" will bleed the cartrige and hopefully the cartrige will work. Clean all messed ink from any contacts and the jet area of the cartrige before inserting back into the plotter.
