Yes ... remove the cartridges ... stick out your tongue ...

Oh wait ... I already tried to pull this on you earlier. :D

Guys ... this is my nephew. Any help for him (with the cartridge problem that is) would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately ... he does not have the manual (Norm) :D

I'd download and install the latest drivers from HP, they should put the panel back in in you're current installation of Windows is missing it.

Thank you for helping out YeOldeStonecat. I told my nephew to post his question in here. I was sure someone would be able to help him out ... just did not think it would be someone from his neck of the woods. :D

Thanks again ...

There are a couple of ways of cleaning the print cartridges. If the printout is smudging or streaking I would 1st try to clean them thru the control panel.. start\settings\printers then right click on deskjet 660C and go to properties then services. If that doesn't work take the cartidges out and wipe them down with a warm wet rag. If it still streaks look for an ink buildup below on the plastic housing where the cartridges are installed. Clean this area free from lint and ink. If this doesn't work replace cartridges.

GIBBS999 is my nephew and I told him to post his problem in here. Little did I know at the time that all the answers would come from SGers in his own back yard. :D Just strange when things like that happen. You would not expect that to happen with all the people who answer questions to the different threads.
