Question about HP OfficeJet G55 All-In-One InkJet Printer
So far the overspill opf black ink seems to have stopped. Do do this I dismantled the Hewlett Packard G55 by taking off the end panels, the back locking panel and the back. I then removed and unplugged the scanner top. There are only about four identical cross-head screws and two 1/2" springs belonging to the lift mechanism for accessing the print-ink carriage. I found that warm water got rid of the encrusted and gooey ink deposits from the panels and so, gritting my teeth, I adventurously and foolhardily held the printer chassis under the running kitchen tap. A vast amount of black ink came flooding out which gradually lightened to clear water. Then I dried the panels and the worst of the chassis wetness and allowed the lot to dry properly in the sunshine. Reassembled the whole unit, powered up and it is still working. Though whether the ink overflow will return remains to be seen. MichaelGUK
