Pushed alcohol through to old WF-2630 printhead, then died

Sep 3, 2017
It wasn't printing anything with new aftermarket cartridges so I pushed the alcohol through the top with a syringe and tube, took a day with rubber bands to hold pressure on the syringit was that clogged, installed cartridges, system went through "preparing the ink system" then screen went blank and since then haven't been able to turn it back on. Idk if the cleaning had anything to do with it. I put paper towel under the printhead to absorb the alcohol but maybe some got through to parts it shouldn't have? I wouldn't imagine that would be an issue. Anyone have any ideas? Might there be a reset switch/method to this machine? Thanks

If you could not push the fluid through the print head then you did not clean it. It has ink dried up inside the head and most likely you will need to change the printhead in the printer to fix it. Not that tough of a job but some printheads are pricy enough to just toss the printer and buy another one.
