You can take the cartridges out. 

 

Lift the latch/lever on the side of the basket area and take it out. 

 

The basket area is the print head. 

 

If you are not able to take the basket area out, then it is not detachable. You will need to do it through the display screen. 

 

1. Press the settings button the printer. 

2. Go to Tools

3. Clean print head/alignment
