    Have I killed my printer?

    Locked

    by david@haydenpub ·

    Hello,
    I have a Lexmark Z52 printer and have been refilling the cartridges. So far I have not had a problem but this time I got the cartridge too full and ink ran down the back over the contacts. I did not realize this until installed the cartridge and started getting blobs of ink on everything. Now, even with a brand new cartridge, the printer will not print color. Is there a way to un do this damage?

      It is worth a try to use alcohol and a q-tip and clean the printer heads and the internal parts of the printer,then use a old carthridge to try and clean the heads,if this an option using the printer setup.
      Good Luck

      Probably not.
      Plug it out from 110v
      Use a q-tip with very hot water first to remove the ink, speccialy those places with too ink. For the most hard_to_remove surfaces, use some alcohol or better isoprophilic alcohol to remove ink.
      Let the system 24hs and the plug it again.

      Hope it helps
