What is a good way to unclog clogged fax ink cartridges?

Unclogging Your Fax Ink Cartridges

If you have a fax ink cartridge that is printing poorly because it is clogged, there are many ways to fix the problem. Here is one great trick on how to get your fax ink cartridge flowing as it should once again. Take the cartridge out of the fax machine. Have running warm water around and start running the water over the cartridge. The clogged ink will loosen under the water. When you are done, use a paper towel to wipe the excess moisture off of the fax ink cartridge. Once very dry, place it back in the fax machine. Lastly, you will want to clean the cartridge using the built in process in your machine.

The menu in your unit should give you this option under a maintenance tab. After cleaned, send a test fax to make sure the job was done completely. If still clogged, repeat the process holding the cartridge under warmer water for a longer period of time. Repeat the last steps as before.
