QUESTION: Hi Norman!

I don't know what to add. I'm asking for the steps so that I can clean the cartridges.
When printing, the text appears to have blank horizontal lines through parts of the letters. I could try to print a test page, but I don't know how to do that for this printer, and your reply would help.
I could also install a new cartridge, but first,I'd like to save the money by trying the cleaning approach/testing approach.

Thanks


Chris

Answer
I suggest replacing the cartridges... but if you are bent on doing diy then

try the following link for some guidance...

if that does not work then try soaking the metal part of the cartridge in some hot water for a minute... that part with the metal part that looks like a transformers logo... then cleaning it with a rag...
