Message : 'unable to clean' have replaced cartridges and put old ones back but to no effect.I have not used the machine for a long time

If printer has been sitting for a long time the problem is probably due to a clogged print head. Ink residue can dry in the print head and clog the ports. Replacing the print head can be as expensive as a new printer. Before running out for a new printer do a web search for 'print head cleaning'. There are several sites that provide detailed step by step instructions for cleaning most print heads. To prevent this in the future; print a tet sheet at least once or twice a week or, if your orinter will be idkle for a extended time, remove the cardridges a seal them in an air tight container.

Cant find out how to clean the head i have horizontal banding and colours are funny

Hello !

I will give you a number of reason or solutions that I hope will help you .

1. All of your printer heads are bad and its not helping if you clean them because maybe you havent been printing for a while the heads get dry.
2. Somewhere in the printer program installed on your computer there should be a helping program for cleaning. If you find it then the printer should tell you when the cleaning is done but the only problem with that function is that you are losing a lot of ink.
3. This is a solution that could work if the cartridges are dry. Take away the cartridges from the printer and put them on a dishcloth contains lukewarm water. Just for a few seconds untill you can see its clean because you dont want to destroy the electronic parts on the cardridge. If its working you will see the ink drain into the dishcloth or paper. Wait for the cartridges to dry completely and then put them in the printer.
4. If none of this reasons will help you need to buy new cardridges.

Good Luck
Best Regards

Red ink not printing!!!

To clean a print cartridge you should a glaas of water and 15-25 ml of alcohol and mix it in a small wide pan. Dip the head (usually head is mounted to the cartridge itself) in the solution and move horizontally (while the head portion only submerged) keep it there for 5-10 minutes. This should clean your print head. After the head is dry you can mout it to the printer and print. Caution: Do not touch the electronic contacts on spilt water or alcohol in it. This will damage the printer.
