In my experience, all inkjets are prone to the ink drying up once
installed and left unused. Environmental conditions effect this
Replacing the ink cartridges usually resolves this.
If the ink has dried in the jet, then drop a solvent into the jet,
right where the ink cartridge goes. Nail polish remover would be good,
ask a woman who wears nail polish for some. Just put a small drop in.
I'm sure changing to a HP printer would sadden you deeply, only the
epsons are capable of whizzing and whirring for 30 seconds before
printing, just to remind you that epson injets are femine, and give
birth to your printouts, and that involves going into labour before
you get your document.
