Just wondering if it's worth spending the £40 on inks or is the printhead dead ?? Thank you.
The only way to be certain is to get a set of OEM carts and run a deep cleaning cycle, then a nozzle check, if you have no improvement in the various colours then the print head is most likely fried, whatever you do Don’t print any test sheets until you get a perfect nozzle print.. if the head is damaged then the only other choice is the dumpster.. (Heads are Unavailable and non-repairable..)

P.S. The reason for buying OEM inks are because they are the best at cleaning out any nozzle clogs..
