How do you run a print-head cleaning cycle??

I run Red Hat 9.0, and I have a HP Deskjet 940c that I just installed. The printer hasn't been used in a while, and it has ink in it, but the cartridges aren't working right. The printer's built-in test page has the same problems, so it isn't a driver issue.

I used the Red Hat printer config thingy (I'll figure out CUPS later), and I want to run the printer cleaning cycles and other printer utilities. How would I do this?

Problem Solved!

For anyone with a similar quesiton,

type cupsconfig at the command prompt, and the CUPS web page will come up, and up the print quality to 600 DPI.
