are you sending instructions
Technician: P. Kumar, Information Systems Manager replied 2 months ago

Okay. Please find instructions below

Step 1: Press ON button to ensure ink tank is in center position
Step 2: Remove each ink cartridge from tank until empty
Step 3: Safely remove the printer head and the ink tank cartridge in two swift steps. (You need NO tools, not be a techie or a computer guru to perform this elementary task. You simply need patience and a gentle touch)
Step 4: After removing Printer head, use BD Alcohol swab square (or similar piece of old flat fabric cloth with dab of alcohol on it); VERY Gently swab and clean all sides of head being careful not to leave cloth particles or tears on the strips of magnetic tape (YOU CAN NOT PLACE THIS HEAD IN WATER OR A CLEANING SOLUTION WITHOUT DAMAGING IT COMPLETELY)
STEP 5: Use BD swabs to gently wipe and clean inside tank and back of tank where prongs are for the head.
STEP 6: Allow printer head to air dry outside of printer. (ALLOW minimum 10 minutes for all air drying to occur for cleaning of ink tank and printer head)

STEP 7: UNPLUG the printer, wait 5 minutes. Then replug printer and POWER ON (Error Code goes away)

Rubbing achohol? Okay, you can use water but please use very less water. I dont recommend water as it could spoil the internal metal connections. Please leave the printer to dry is you are using water.
