    I haven't used my printer in along time so wasn't surprised the thing didn't print . Being a guy my first thought was....spray it with WD-40 and this did nothing. Second idea was hit it with something........still didn't work . I looked around online figuring we just see get a new Cartridge...but... one site said take the cartridge and soak it in HOT water . At this point we figured the ink in this puppy was beyond rejuvenation but we gave it a try. I noticed some ink starting to flow in the water and wiped the copper strip on cartridge a few times , dried it off , and stuck in back in the printer. First try at printing and it did it's thing like day one.........UNREAL !! So next time you figure your old cartridge has had the bird try this out...............might save a few bucks also.!
