You get a new print head, a cleaner cart. and an ink cart. The print head snaps into the carriage and away you go. I have never heard of using an ultra sonic cleaner to clean the print heads. In the past I just kept using the heads until they started to band. The printer runs tests for each color and shows you where the jets are not working. If two or three are not working you are ok, but more than that you might as well throw the head away and insert another. HP really wants you to change heads everytime you change ink. It has been my experience that the heads quit printing before you run out of ink. This series of printer has to be the most efficient user of ink I have ever seen. HP does supply a cleaner for the electronic strip on the print head but no type of cleaner for the actual jets themselves. The real problem is you can not purchase the print heads by themselves, so when the print head quits you have ink left over. At 126.00 per cart for dye based ink and 165.00 for UV ink you don't want to waste it. Jim Davis www.visual-artists.com - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
