You will need, rubbing alcohol, 15-20 Q-Tips, and a Roll of SOFT paper towels.

Pour some rubbing alcohol into a wide bowl, or plate.  Only pour about 1/4 in deep.
Then take your print head, and set the jets into the alcohol.
Get a Q-tip wet with the alcohol, and GENTLY rub the Ink coming from the jets.
Let them soak in the alcohol for 1-2 hours.

Then take the paper towels, and fold them so theyre about 1/2 in thick, and remove the print head and set on the paper towels to draw the alcohol back from the print head.

Replace the Paper towels once they become saturated, and let the alcohol drain with the dried up ink from the print head.  Let this take about 2 hours.

Then place print head back in printer, and do a print head cleaning.

If the print head is recoverable, this will make it work again.  If not, it is permanantly damaged.
