I guess you mean the ink dries in the printing head "holes"? It's been a long
time since I've had that problem--I guess the little bit of rubbing alcohol
that I add to the ink helps prevent that problem.
In the past, when I've had the problem, I've done things like put the print
head into a tray with a shallow batch of rubbing alcohol (so it just wets the
print head "holes"). After soaking for a while, I wipe the head dry (gently)
(just to avoid dripping ink anywhere) with something lint free, reinsert in
the printer, and then run a cleaning cycle.
If that doesn't work, I'll repeat.
