Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
This sounds like you are trying to use either aftermarket or refilled cartridges. To clear the ink nozzles you will have to invest in new OEM cartridges, run the cleaning procedure at least 3x to clear the nozzles, align the printhead. This should take care of the problem.
I would remove the OEM cartridges, retape the ink outlet and breather hold at the top and store them for the next time you need to unclog the nozzles. Try LDProducts.com for ink cartridges.
As for the cartridges that you had the problem with I would take them back to the vendor for credit or an exchange.
Aftermarket and refill ink often do not meet manufacturer specifications.
