Question about Lexmark JetPrinter X1185 All-In-One InkJet
The printer doesn't get used much. It got to where it would not print well, poor printing and then just got worse. I thought it may be out out ink or had old cartridges so I replaced them. It did not help at all. What's up here?
When inkjet printers are not used much, the ink dries up in the cartridges and on the print head, causing poor printing, and, as the dried ink builds up, no printing at all. no matter how many times the cartridges are changed, the dried ink won't work out. Some people have had luck with this problem by using alcohal and a q-tip to clean the print head. If that doesn't work, you will need a new printer.
