  3. Select Maintenance and press the OK button.
  4. Press the up or down arrow buttons, select Print Head Cleaning, and press the OK button.
  5. Press one of the  Start buttons to start the cleaning cycle. The  power light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on when the cleaning cycle is finished.
    Never turn off the product during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it.
  6. Press the OK button to run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head up to 4 times, leave the product turned on and wait at least 6 hours. Then try cleaning the print head again. If quality still does not improve, one of the ink cartridges may be old or damaged and needs to be replaced.
