Hp HP DeskJet 600

No ink in Officejet

I found your forum very useful in fixing my recurrent paper jam message on mu HP officejet 600. While I was in there, I cleaned the ink cartridges, and now after several days of weak/faded printing, the black cartridge has stopped printing completely. I can hear ink in the cartridge when I shake it, and YES, I did swipe the gold colored center section with a cotton swab. Have I ruined this cartridge, or is there hope in getting it flowing again?
Try sticking just the head in some hot water and swishing it around. Don't get any water on the electrical contacts. The ink is water soluble. If that doesn't work, it's new cartridge time.
