could you tell me how to clean the printer heads as it
has been left standing

I assume you mean the printer cartridge heads? It is not
wise to manually clean these as you can damage the
delicate membrane. My first advice is to check your
printer manual. I'n not sure about other printer
manufacturer's but Hewlett Packard printers usually have
a button marked 'clean' which cleans the printer head.
Check your pinter to see if such a button exists and then
try that.

Hope this helps

1. Can't print out to network printer if local printer is set as default printer


 I am using Win XP and have a HP Laser JEt 5L printer
attached to it locally. When I try to print to a network
printer, I can only print if I set the network printer as
default. If the local printer is set as default even when
I choose the option at print window to print to the
network printer instead. It will still print to the local
printer. But if i change the default printer to the
network printer, it works. After testing so, now when I
print to the local printer, it has slown down
tremendously. How do I solve this ? I'm thinking I don't
have the right driver ? Thank You.
