Question about Canon SmartBase MP390 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Brian, take nail polish remover and pour it into a saucer about the depth +- 2 to 3mm and leave it there till you notice the ink disolving into the solution, if that fails to work remove the cartridge and add boiling hot water about 5mm into a saucer, when you notice the ink flowing from the cartridge then remove it from the saucer, dry it properly and place it back into the printer. Then do a cleaning nozzle from the maintenance tab. Hope this helps, it helped me quite frequently
