Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
It seems that the print head is clogged.
You can choose to live with it by print at slowest speed (best photo or things like that) Or you may try to fix, however, it requires some skills.
A. USING ALCOHOL
1. Check if what print head was clogged: Print a test page. 2. Look at the test page, identify incomplete lines. what are there colors? For instant, blue line: clogged on blue head 3. Remove the ink tanks, and pump alcohol through the clogged print head 4. Do head cleaning to see if it works
If it does not work, try B method. Please only do this if you have experience on disassemble a printer, or you have nothing to lose, because incorrect handling parts from printers will kill it forever.
B. DIPPING THE PRINT HEAD IN BOILING WATER
1. Remove the ink tanks,. 2. Remove all the cables connect to cartridge 3. Remove the cartridge 4. Boil some pure water ( Aquafina of Pepsi is the best) until small bubbles appear 5. Dip the head of cartridge ONLY in boiling water for 2 minutes. 6. Put all things together.
