Tear a single sheet of paper towel in half. Fold the sheet
in half several times until it is about 1/2 inch
Put the print head on top of the paper towel and put a few
drops of distilled water for at least 15 minutes. This will
soften the ink on the printhead.
Move print head assembly back to its resting position. You
will probably notice that the paper towel now has one big
black blob of ink on it. (There is so much excess ink on the
print head that all the colors are mixing to make black.)
If you cannot clearly see individual colors, then dampen
another spot on the paper towel and move the print head back
over the newly dampened spot on the paper towel. Continue
repeating this until you see all the individual colors.
*note: when reassembling be certain to move the print head
back to its resting position (the extreme right side above
the park carriage)
