Hi There
There is no other way if you not get the ink head clean then you can forget it it will never work right, so you will need to keep on trying.
Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

White lines on dark photo prints


White lines means some of the print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Try the deep clean print head cycles then do a test print. If this still does not fix the problem then a new print head is required.
Print heads are expensive and if your printer is old then maybe better to put your money towards a new printer.

It appears that the printer is malfunctioning and will require service. I suggest contact its manufacturer to verify the warranty status of your printer, and have it replace by them. If the warranty is already expired, you can send the printer to the nearest service center for repair.

Black printer ink in HP Printers may fail to be recognized by the printer. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. Even though you've run the cleaning utility on the printer, a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.
