Ouch

You have a problem and a big one at that.

What you need to do is take the whole system out of the printer.

Next empty the bottles in to other bottles or what ever.

If possable remove the a tube from the cartridge. (if you know what tube goes to what colour then remove all)

Next you need a syringe (size not importent) and a fitting that fits to the inside of the tube this can be a needle if possable It has to be a tight fit.

Fill the syringe with warm water and connect every thng together and then force the water up the tube.It can take some fource to clearthe tube.

You might have to push and pull back on the plunger a number of times.

Useing warm water again inject the water up the tube untill it flows free and easy

When clear replace the tube back onto the cartridge and then go to the next one untill all clear.

If you can not get the tubes clear then you have to get replacement from where you got the system.

If you do manage to clear the tubes refill the ink continers and reprime the system.

But be warned that the cartrideges might cloged. If this the case get a new system

All the best Robert
