Tip & How-To about Canon Pixma iP6000D InkJet Photo Printer
The nice thing about this printer is that it can use the cheap aftermarket ink. The problem is, this ink can sometimes cause the print heads to not clean properly. The tip that works to fix a baldly clogged print head is to remove the print head, and spray and soak it in "Simple Green" for at least 3 hours. Then use compressed air to force the "Simple Green" through the heads from the screens in the ink wells, to the print head. Then use the air from the print heads, you will see foaming by each print screen. Be carefull not to lose the small rubber inserts around the print screen. Rince the print head with clear water and repeat the compressed air until dry. Replace, and put the ink cartriges back in, and bingo, your printer will work like new again!
