Re: printer head removal
Hi Kenno23 - have you tried a standard head cleaning cycle and nozzle check? If so,what was the result. If not, try it. If you don't know how to, simply right-click the printer icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, and select "Head Clean". After this has finished select "Nozzle Check". Let me know how you get on, or if you've tried all this with no success, let me know exactly what you have tried.
