Is there a way to ‘revive’ computer ink cartridges?

I don’t use my printer a lot but a new set of ink lasted only a few months. I printed maybe 3 pages with them.

    They sell diy refill kits on amazon. They usually include bottles of ink and a syringe

    if you try cleaning the printer heads that may loosen up the ink that has dried on the surface, your entire cart should not be dry. If you go to your control panel, view devices and printers and right click on the printer choose troubleshoot there should be a way to clean your heads. That may not be exactly how to get there, it may depend on what type of computer and what OS you are running, but that should give you a start. This tutorial may help, as well

    If they are ink jet cartridges, here's a great You Tube video that shows you how you can unclog them.
