Re: HP Deskjet 5700 Series with Windows 7

You can perform a cleaning manually as follows:  with the printer turned on press and hold the power button.  Now press and release the X button twice, then release the power button.

Note that it is very rare that cleaning the cartridges would ever be required and that unnecessary cleaning can shorten the life of the cartridge and the printer can be damaged by excessive cleaning.
