If the cleaning does not achieve the purpose, then replace the new nozzle.

(2) avoid using fingers and tools to collide with the nozzle surface to prevent damage to the nozzle surface or debris, oil and other blockage of the nozzle. Do not blow into the nozzle area, do not sweat, oil, drugs (alcohol), etc. on the nozzle, causing changes in the composition of the ink, viscosity, causing the ink to solidify and block.
