    Like iSoles second link up top - a cleaning followed by a head refresh. Be wary dried out cartridges.
    Should the hot water soak fail, a little AFTA (cleaning solvent) or turps to get the channels flow'in.

    Good, Frank! I've been fooled by those printer progs that are supposed to chk things out too, seems best to do it yourself. :)

    Hopin' it works for you.
