To remove it you pretty much have to take apart the printer, tip up the lid and try and get the scanner cover verticle and then slide to the left it should detach and then undo all the screws you see on the top were the pinter head is, and i would recommend Alcohol Swabs (IsoPropyl Alcohol), Then just reverse the dissassimbay directions

SOURCE: How to remove the print head?

When you lift the lid like you're changing inks, you will see on each side long plastic covers that pop out, all the wires and the ground wire have to be removed and then you can set the whole top aside, after that there's several phillips screws that come out and you lift the middle cover off. The printhead is exposed at this time and the tubes come off, and the drive belt. The head will lift off the left side of the rails. Good Luck!

Are the ink cartridges just a few copies, I have new copier and print is very faint


You need to clean the print head and insert the cartridge and check, whether it is working at fine because a dirty printer header will not allow the right formulation of the basic cyan, magenta, and yellow to print and comes up with the yellow color and not red.
If you still face the problem after cleaning print head then you need to check for a clogged nozzle. Clean the nozzle and then try printing it will work fine now.
To clean the print head from the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. Furthermore, you can clean the print head by Using a cotton Q-Tip & Isopropyl Alcohol and gently rub the print head with alcohol.

Hope this helps.

Black ink does not print. How do you disassemble

Possibly you printer has two ink tanks ? a small black one and a large one ? If one is empty it will not print black. The better solution is to use a q-tip and some alcohol to clean the head. If the cartridges have been replaced - possibly the new one is defective? U might also try using the head clean option in the printer properties. Additionally sometimes the contacts for the cartridge are dirty or if they have been touched with fingers they will not work, alcohol again is recommended to clean those.

Prints have lines throughout

Sounds like the printer head is dirty and needs to be cleaned. If after removing the ink cartridge and cleaning the print head with DENATURED ALCOHOL NOT RUBBING ALCOHOL, does not produce clean prints with out the lines, you might need to replace the actual print head mechanism. The print heads do not last forever and need to be replace every so often.

Why has the print quality gone down on my i860 printer

The head may be dirty or misaligned.

Run through the tools on the printer to clean the printer head and realign the print head.

If this does not work, then you will have to remove the print head and clean it (with rubbing alcohol) until residue is removed. Or you can soak it over night with a 25% rubbing alcohol and 75% water mixture.

Dont take your printer apart unless you know how.

Take some paper towels, fold them in half, spray them with alcohol FREE glass cleaner and set your color cartrige on the paper towels and let them soak for thirty minutes or so. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL it sets the ink. also clean the thin plastic strip in the back of the print heads this is the encoder strip and it tells the print heads when to dispense if this is dirty from overspray it will affect your print quality. Use q tips and the same alcohol free window cleaner.

I have an epson dx4400 printer, when printing there are lines across the text and complete lines missing. I have tried running all of the diagnostic and repair tools that came with the printer e.g head...

Regrettably EPSON print heads/inks are notorious for clogging unless you print every day.

You may have to buy a print head cleaning solution and try that.

Canon BJC 80 Printer

Try cleaning off the contacts on the ink carriage with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. The part that connects to the copper contacts on the printhead. You can't harm them by cleaning this way. And the alcohol evaporates pretty quick. Canon ink is 65% alcohol and this dissolves and cleans off ink residue on any part of the printer. Sometimes these contacts get dirty over time and won't read print heads installed any more. This fixes about half the printers like this I have problems with.

If cleaning doesn't help, and a new print head won't work, then the only fix is to replace the ink tank carriage assembly.
