HP Deskwriter 660 printer problems

"My HP Deskwriter is just over the warranty of one year and when I print text instead of white lines through the type which would indicate to clean cartridges or replace them, I get black thin lines almost smearing slightly the text."

(From: Dennis Bathory-Kitsz (bathory@maltedmedia.com).)

  1. Take out the cartridges and clean their sides, which pick up hair.

  2. Clean the cartridge-cleaning mechanism itself on the right, especially the foam pad.

  3. Take out the cartridges and clean the bottom of their carriers.

For this last, there may be some diagrams accessible via the HP Support Page.
