After non use of computer for a couple of weeks my black ink won't print. I've changed the catridge twice and cleaned the heads it half a dozen times, but it still won't work. The other colours seem fine. Can anyone please advise me? Many thanks.
Simply made at home. When refurbishing machines that have been discardeed I have some times found thast the sayringe needs to be kept in place with pressure on - some times overnight to allow the coagulated ink to dissolve. But as already advised - Gently does it it.
KremmenUK wrote printhead in a sealed plastic bag and immerse it in a pot of hot water for a few hours. Which hit a point - At no time did modsteve60s mention his printer make. I and I suspect Woody were assuming - Epson machines which have heads built in to machine Others Canon/Lexmark/HP of course have integrated heads and cartridges Should have found out that bit of course at first
