Question about Canon PIXMA iP1500 InkJet Photo Printer
I am assuming that the printer ran dry since I had it stored away not using it. I recently bought new cartridges and it still wont work. It just makes the noise like it is printing but it really isn't. Please help. Chris
Your print head is most probably blocked.
First try and run the deep cleaning program a few times, it make penetrate deep enough to get through.
If that doesn't work you can either replace the print head or try and clean it.
To clean it you could soak it in a mixture of window cleaner and water (filtered best), but don't let the electronics get wet by this and try to avoid wetting the rubber seals where the ink tanks go get wet by this too, it should only soak the very bottom part of the head.
Let it dry off and wipe any residue with a soft cloth especially on the bottom where the print heads actually are. You may need to soak it a few times to get all the gunk out.
