done

Grasp the sides of the printhead, and then lift the printhead and pull it toward you to remove it.
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
Handle the printhead carefully to avoid ink stains. Avoid touching the underside of the printhead.
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
once its removed try to clean the print head under a warm running tap water till all the ink is removed.use a cotton dipped with alcohol and try to clean the copper/golden contact points on the print head as well as the print head carriage where it sits make sure the contacts are good dry and clean.
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
install the print head back and close the tray and then let me know if you get the error insert ink cartridges.
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
Insert the new cartridges after removing the packaging plastics Please make sure there are no packaging tapes on the cartridges. Try to run print head cleaning one time and hen try to print and let me know how it goes.
