do not touch the print head and electrical contact


2. Remove the foam ink container, then wash with water
3. Replace the foam, and then inject the ink



4. Attach the cartridge cover with glue. If the glue is not strong enough, tied with tape
5. Suck the ink from the print head. Suck the ink, can be done in two ways.

Problem 3

- Print head clogged or hard foam cartridges (solution 1)

- Wet ink circuit, resulting in short-circuit on the electrical contacts (solution 2)

Solution 1

1. Open the cartridge
2. Clean the ink reservoir foam
3. Insert the ink into the foam
