Yeah, I am way behind on the messages...

Anyhow, what I used to do, which worked well for me, is that first I
would pop out the print cartridge.

Then take a paper towel and run it across the heads in the direction of
printing. If that didn't loosen it up, then I would go cross ways as
well. On real bad cases, I would sort of make small circles on the print
ports to get them freed.

Once the ink was flowing, I would then take a tissue and run it across
the ports in the direction of print. I would do this very gently.

Then I would replace the print cartridge and do a test print.

This solution has worked well for me on a variety of ink jet printers.

I hope this helps.
