Are the lights still blinking? because that should indicate you did forget to put something back in the correct way. I would place back the old head. put a few drops of cleaning fluid in the nozzles and gave it a few pages in full colour to print on normal paper. At first nothing will appear, but after just a few pages, some nozzles will give cleaning fluid and a little later you will see colour again. Did the same with an older Canon last weekend and it only took 4 pages and not one nozzle is refusing to work.
Be aware, if you did remove the head, you have to put everything back as it was. Because the alignment of the head is very critical. Make sure nothing is in the sensors, that check the end of carriage and so on.
make sure you have washer fluid come out of the pump when on,if so maybe clogged hose to nozzle or nozzle clogged up which you can clean chemical residues with a sharp needle then moderately blow air(with air hose) from nozzle towards end of hose that connects to pump. Hope this helps. Oh,make sure not to wiggle the nozzle because then it would change direction of spray.
Sounds to me part of the tubing is frozen shut from the pump to nozzle, nozzle may be clogged as well. The pump motor might run, but pump on the end faulty. Remove tubing from pump and see if it squirts out, if so replace tubing to pump and remove tubing from nozzle on hood or wiper, check to see if it squirts from there. IF it does then your nozzle is clogged with wax or ice.
Check the rubber hoses to the sprayers. If they are on the hood they can come unplugged when you open it. Have a friend work the sprayers as you watch for leaks. An old toothbrush can be used to clean spray nozzles by scrubbing over the hole.

Solution 1: Clean the timing strip.
Solution 2: The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .
Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. All The Best: Pineworks
Hi e-margaret. There's a bit of confusion here. Horizontal banding is due to LACK of ink flow to the paper. "Splodging" is due to too much. The former can be due to blocked/faulty print head nozzles or a faulty/empty-ish cartridge, or some less common problem like the waste ink pipe blocked. The latter is usually due to a leaking cartridge.
The first job is to mop up ink slopping around under the print head. Cut some strips of kitchen towel and fold them into 3 layers so you have a strip about 2 cm wide. Place them on the print head track. Turn on the printer, and as soon as the print head moves, pull out the power cord from the back of the printer. Now you should be able to move the print head carefully by hand too and fro over the towels. Repeat this with clean towel strips until most of the surplus ink is cleaned up. Remove the towel strips, replug in the power chord and switch the printer back on. Do a head clean cycle and nozzle check 3 or 4 times. If the nozzle check output looks OK, try a test print of a text document
If things are still not OK, report back on what happens in a new comment. If my instructions are not clear enough, please post a new comment asking for clarification.
The first thing to do is check the nozzle setting on your spray lance. The nozzle setting is adjustable (by twisting it) and, if it's set to high pressure, cleaning fluid will not be drawn up from the reservoir. Cleaning fluid will only be drawn from the reservoir when the nozzle is set at low pressure. (Even at the low pressure setting, this problem can occur if you use an extension high-pressure hose.)
You say the machine has never been used, so the nozzle setting is the most likely cause of your problem. Other possible causes are highly unlikely to occur in a new machine. If adjusting the nozzle doesn't help, I suggest you contact the dealer from whom you bought the machine.
I hope this helps. Your feedback is valuable to me so please remember to rate this response.
Before you replace the nozzle, take a sewing needle and clear any dirt in the nozzle bearing, that is where the water come out of the nozzle. Then reset the nozzle bearing. If that fails to work, then source a new nozzle for your vehicle.
