Automatically clean print cartridges
If your printed pages are faded or if they contain ink streaks, the print cartridges might be
low on ink or might need to be cleaned. For more information, see
View estimated ink
If the print cartridges are not low on ink, clean the print cartridges automatically.
To clean the print cartridges
Open the printer
Clean the Print Cartridges
, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
If your documents are still faded after cleaning, manually clean the print cartridge
contacts. For more information, see
Manually clean print cartridges
Clean print cartridges only when necessary. Unnecessary cleaning
wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.
