Printhead Problems. HELP! HP Officejet All in one L7580

I keep having to clean my printheads everyday for them to work.  I was reading on another post about cleaning the capping station???  Where is that and how exactly do I do that?  Please help.  We have tried almost everything.  We are working with a brand new printhead.

Re: Printhead Problems. HELP! HP Officejet All in one L7580

I'm having the same problem with an HP Officejet Pro K5400, only cleaning the printhead does not solve the problem, even though all the test printing suggests that the black print head is gunked up.  I've even changed the black print head with a new one and that one has the same issue.


Based on what I've seen on the forum, this is a common HP problem.  I'm very unhappy and looking at Canon printers this weekend.
