I guess you mean the ink dries in the printing head "holes"?  It's been a long 
time since I've had that problem--I guess the little bit of rubbing alcohol 
that I add to the ink helps prevent that problem.

In the past, when I've had the problem, I've done things like put the print 
head into a tray with a shallow batch of rubbing alcohol (so it just wets the 
print head "holes").  After soaking for a while, I wipe the head dry (gently) 
(just to avoid dripping ink anywhere) with something lint free, reinsert in 
the printer, and then run a cleaning cycle.

If that doesn't work, I'll repeat.
