My printer was working fine untll recently it only will print some of the lines on the paper.  I seems to be skipping every third and/or fouth line.

I am trying to find out how to clean the printer heads.  I found how to, and did, clean the cartridges, but not the printer heads....

Well, I just ended up changing out my black ink cartridge, even though it showed ink sill in the ink level.  Once I changed it for a new cartridge it startined printing properly.  Perhaps, even though there was still ink in the cartridge, it had just dryed out.  I later read that you should turn your printer off when not in use to avoid the cartridges drying out.  I will do this from now on.  Thank you.
