Tried this with HP 60 black and tri-colour cartridges, which were both brand new, sealed cartridges, but were probably sitting in the box since ~2008. It did manage to loosen the ink up enough that if I ran the nozzle along a damp coffee filter, it would leave a solid black line, or in the case of the colour cartridge, a line of 3 stripes: cyan, yellow, then magenta. Unfortunately, the moment I dry them off and pop them back in the printer, nothing happens. I did manage to get the faded mostly cyan top third of a test page once, but that was it. Repeated the process more thoroughly, and got a more consistent output of ink on the filter, but the result after that was nothing but blank sheets.

Not really sure what to do beyond this, because I could probably just pick up a new printer for the price of these cartridges. This would probably work well for newer cartridges that were printing fine, but then were just left idle for a few months too long between prints.

At least you tried it and you know what to do if the cartridges aren't left for a lessor time.
