2. For less severe clogs, try removing your cartridge. Then, using a soft, clean cloth and isopropyl alcohol, gently wipe the electric contacts and electronic circuit. Avoid touching the contacts or circuit with your bare fingers. Reinstall the cartridge, run the printhead cleaning program and print a test page to check results.
Note: When using this method, make sure the water is hot, but not boiling. Also, make sure your printer is unplugged before re-installation. At this point, you may want to run the self-cleaning utility for your printhead and print a test page to check results.
