Yes, that worked !For your information, there is no scrolling on the display screen to tell you what is happening. Also you need to step away from the printer for a few seconds between steps 7 and 8, there is a pause by the printer at this point before any thing happens or appears to change, then you can hear the cartride carriage moving backwards and forwards. Be patient and only switch off when the printer has decidedly stopped any action.Regards, Trevor
