OfficeJet 6500 E709a Print Head Assembly Replacement

[ Edited ]

Can I skip cleaning the electrical contacts while changing a print head assembly on an Officejet 6500 E709a? Following HP instructions for changing.  Step 6 of the instructions states "Clean the electrical contacts. The replacement printhead assembly comes with pre-moistened wipes." No wipes were in the padded envelope; thought that they might be in the actual sealed package containing the replacement printhead assembly. No. 

 

Is there another way that I can clean them? 

 

Thanks for reading this. I have resolved the issue successfully. I used rubbing alchol on an eyeglass cloth. Successfully completed the replacement.

I am sorry, but the link given ends me up at a sales page, not a parts-purchase page. How can I buy a new printhead?

And how will I ever remember how to get back here for your reponse?

What an incredibly effed up system HP has.

All of you, I hope you can find jobs with other companies, because HP apparently has a death wish.

This from a HP customer since 1993.

Good luck everyone, I hope you can find jobs elsewhere.
