You'll probably need to replace the whole printhead. It's a bit of a job on that machine

OK lift the gray lever up and remove the cartridges, look just below the gray lever and you will see two rounded protrousions inside towards the rear of the black box, grasp these protrousions with your thumbs and forfingers and gently pull toward you, ther may be some resestance but pull smoothly do not ****, the print head will come out. There are no wires to disconnect the circuits are touch circuits.

You open the lid and wait for the carriage to come tothe center, remove all inks, lift the gray lever straight up and tilt the printhead forward from the top and lift straight out. The new one goes in bottom first and then you tilt back the top, lower the lever again and install the inks.
