Power on the machine, open the front hatch as if changing a cartridge. Remove all the cartridges, then lift the locking arm holding the print head in place. Remove the print head and wash under running warm water. Dry it with a soft paper towel and replace it and the cartridges in the printer. Close the hatch and wait for the machine to reset. Hold the resume button until the power light flashes twice - it will do a self clean and test print.
