Question about Canon i9900 InkJet Photo Printer
I have 3 Canons i9900 and the clogging of red and photo magenta is common, mainly photomagenta. I take the print head out and place it on a paper towel. I mix a solution of 50/0 distilled water and isopropyl alcohol. I use a syringe and put enough solution around each print head to cover it and let it soak for about 1 hr. I will keep adding solution to keep the head covered. You will notice color leaking out on the paper towel. After an hour I actually push the solution through each head until no color comes out the bottom. I took a piece of tubing and heated it to shrink the end and then cut it off straight. It fits snugly on top of the print head. I then attached it to a syringe and fill the syringe with my solution. Then I push the tubing on top of the head and gently push solution through the head until it comes out clear. I do all the heads. when I am done I use canned air to gently dry everything, especially the contact plate off. when I put the new head in I usually try to put OEM cartridges in the first time, I have been told they flow better. This works for me. It is a pain but I refill my ink and I save $1000's a year in ink.

Try doing calibration or nozzle tests available in maintenance mode.

I ran all of the basic checks and tests through the printer maintenance section of mac os x. i have installed a new printhead. all the colors work flawless except for the photo red and magenta, they
do not print at all ! - absolutely nothing!
