Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers
After long periods of non-use, ink can dryin the jets and jam them up. The clean printhead utilities that come with the printer may not work when this happens.
A couple tricks:Try pulling the cartridges and cleaning the print surface with a q-tip and alcohol. Then set it on a paper towel or newspaper for 30-40 seconds to draw the ink out. Replace them in the printer and re-try.
If this fails, heat some water up in a bowl (you don't mind getting ink on). Dip the cartridges in for a few seconds, then dry with newspaper/paper towel.. Replace in the printer and try to print.
Let me know how it goes, OK?
