    Its the metal square or rectangle with the tiny holes (and probably some caked or smeared ink).  Its usually opposite the fill opening, on the bottom when inside the printer.  (Not sure about this particular model)

    Sometimes getting the print head wet will loosen up any dried ink in the nozzles (holes).  You might have to do it more than once.  If its been sitting idle for a long time, you will need to replace it, as it will have dried beyond reviving.  You should dry it off before putting it back in the printer to test.
