i don't quite understand where u said utilise it... you mean without fully using it   if this what you mean then try the solution below

If you are using individual ink tanks i.e. eachcolor is it's own tank in the end of the ic there should be two holes one is smaller then the other in the smaller of the two insert a paper clip remove it then squeeze in on the sides of the Ink catridge until you see ink come out through the end then put it back in the printhead and run through 3 cleaning cycles / priming cycles if one particular color still is not printing then it is a problem with that tank if all the colors are having problems printing then u may need to replace the printhead

If you have the all color in one cartridges then take a damp cloth wipe the end of the printhead with damp ppr towel then run it through 3 cleaning / priming cycles
if that didn't work then try a new IC

If with a new ic it still does not work make sure printer is plugged direct to the walll then try again nbo difference them if it is the individual ink tank system i.e. 4 ink tanks then the pump will need service or the printhead needs to be replaced.
