HP and Canon Ink Series Printers – Hot Water Printhead Flush

When an inkjet printer (most newer HP and Canon inkjet printer models since 2006) exhibit poor print quality, missing color(s) or image streaking, flushing the printhead with warm water for several minutes will usually resolve the issue. It is first suggested to ensure ink cartridges have plenty of ink and to perform a 'Clean Printhead' action at the printer before attempting the water flushing procedure. This procedures is applicable to individual ink tank printer models that feature a removable Printhead assembly only. HP 564 HP 920 Ink Series Printers Hot Water Printhead Flush

Hi,

There seems to be a calibration problem. Follow the calibration test from the manual.

If you are using original cartridges, go to canon for repair.
