How to fix clogged printer ink cartridge?

I have an Epson NX230 at home that I suspect has a clogged ink cartridge. It hasn’t printed very many pages, but it sat unused for a couple of months. Is there any way to clean a clogged ink cartridge?

How to Fix an Old or Clogged Ink Cartridge the Cheap Way

"f you've ever had a printer (not one of those super old ones) that hasn't been in use for a couple of months (or even a year or two!) that won't seem to print, the reason could be because of a clogged ink cartridge.

Unclogging it isn't very complicated, but can get messy so make sure to read the tips and steps BEFORE you begin!"

You can hold it over boiling water for 4-5 minutes. I suggest using tongs or something similar, you don’t want to burn yourself! Also make sure it is dry before you reinstall the cartridge. I’ve had this method work sometimes, but not everytime. Still, it is worth a try, printer cartridges are expensive.
