Question about Canon BJC 5100 InkJet Printer
I have my one purchased 8 yrs ago. Since the first color print usage which was exellent, I've been using it only for B&W printing, which is remarkable period of time for me. But...I have to print some colour sheets now and that is the problem. The holder 2 is clogged (many years ago?) and I do not know how to clean it without damaging the print head area at the side of a cartridges holder.
Is there any simple solution?
Note: I live in Macedonia, so I suppose it makes the possible solution less capable for me, if service is a solution, because the printer model is not present at the resealers anymore.

Thank you, gringo11
Removing 2 screws underneath and clean it do the job!
I had this problem twice! The black pigment from number 5 cartridge did not print at all. First time, I just bought new printing head, thought it was end of unit life because I had it for a year of heavy use. Second unit last only 6 months so I decided to do some internet research.
And I Fix Ya!

Sorry if this sounds daft (but I am), when this happened to me and I'd pulled all my hair out I read the instructions on the cartridge and found there was a clear piece of film covering the ink holes on the bottom. It was almost invisible until it was pointed out to me. I pulled it off and 'hey presto'.
