G3200 Print Heads Totally Dry After Non Use

Occasional Contributor

Due to some personal health reasons, I have not been using my G3200 printer for quite some time (I bought it to print my photography experiments Smiley Happy ). Anyway, due to this non-use, the printer heads appear to be totally dry. NOTHING prints, although the printer goes through the motions. 


I've done the "normal" print head cleaning five or six times, and have performed the "deep" cleaning three times. Still, nothing comes out on the paper. 


I need suggestions for next steps. It's so far out of warranty, I'm not opposed to breaking in to parts of the printer to use alcohol and Q-tips if necessary, I would need some guidance there if it's out there, such as manuals, YouTube videos, etc.


Any help would be apprectiated. 

Oh, I know this will be the first question...all ink tanks are completely full. I filled  them shortly before I stopped using it for this extended period. I can see the full tanks through the windows in the front of the printer.
