Question about Canon PIXMA MP470 All-in-One Printer
I tried to print 20 pages yesterday, then a piece of paper got jammed andI pulled it out. Now the ink is smearing. I read something about cleaning a wiper blade, but I can't find my printer manual and don't know what that means. Thanks for your help.
I don't own an MP470 myself so I'm going on what I know of other Canon Pixma models.
The area to the right of the printer is where the printhead parks when not in use and also has a series of cleaning tools which help **** waste ink through the printhead as well as do a sort of window cleaning wipe of the printhead too.
To get to this area:
- lift the printer lid as if you were changing cartridges
- wait for the printhead carriage to move to the center
- pull the power cable out of the printer.
This will allow you to move the printhead manually over to the left side and using a torch look into the right part of the printer.
If you look in this area for any build up of ink and carefully (and I do mean CAREFULLY!) dab any excess ink using material which won't leave any lint or fibres behind.
Cotton buds (used for cleaning ears) are useful for cleaning the "wiper" part if you can identify it.
Once you've done this plug the printer back in and try running a nozzle check and possibly a cleaning routine (not deep cleaning) to see if this corrected the issue.
