Hi, this is Taylor. Today we're discussing HP printers and their cartridges. Now we're going to discuss how to unclog an HP print cartridge. HP has a variety of cartridges. Any cartridge that contains a print head on it is fairly simple to unclog at home. It can be frustrating at times, but give it a few tries, and it will, it'll work. With any of them, the most simple way is to get a container full of hot water and rubbing alcohol. A fifty-fifty mixture is sufficient. Once you have that, you can place the cartridge about midway into the solution. We'll let it sit for about ten to fifteen minutes, take it out, dap on a paper towel until the ink starts to come out. Then, after you've completely dried it, place it into your printer and then run a cleaning. To run a cleaning from your printer, it's quite simple. Just go into your printing preferences, and then click on the services or maintenance tab. Once there, it will have a tab saying clean or service this device. Click on that and it will guide you through the cleaning process.
