HP Officejet 7110
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

My HP Officejet 7110 printer will not print magenta. I have tried multiple times to do the software clean printer head. But still no magenta. I am now looking for advice on how to remove and physically clean the printer head for the 7110 model. Any ideas?

The last good print was a week ago. Nothing changed in the software or the hardware and I have tried everything suggested. Still no Magenta. I need a walkthrough fix on cleaning the print head as I am in a location that has no HP service center. How to manually clean the printer head?

Thanks for the link. I tried the option in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f57jOGj-G5s) as my printhead seams to be of the non removable kind. 
I placed wet tissues and manually ran the print head across them to clean and did this 3 times. But still no magenta.

 

1. Run cleaning procedure. 2. Open top cover. 3. Unplug power 4. Remove inks 5. Put moisture kitchen towel under the print head 6. Put moisture kitchen towel on the printed 7. Remove towels after 15-30 min and put inks back 8. Run cleaning procedure again 9. Run cleaning ink smears it necessary
