how can I slide printer heads to left to expose the ink pads?

I have a problem with the black, it appears to be printing as transparent grey, on closer examination of the the printout even at 1440 dpi there is definitely not a solid when printing black text. I have replaced black cartridge, no luck, still the same. I want to see whether the black ink pad is perhaps dry. I have cleaning fluid, and want to soak the pad to see if this will help, I recall being able to move the head along the running rails to reveal the open pads but cannot remember how to do this, is there a simple solution i.e. turn off current etc.

Turn it on. When the heads move, pull the plug.
