Question about Canon Printers & Copiers
How do I clean the print head canon i860
I've had some success, if one hasn't been printing with the ink dry for awhile , through soaking the entire printhead in a bowl of alcohol. Soaked it for 1-2 days wiping it from time to time. Took awhile, but it worked. Might have to do it again soon. Bottle of rubbing alcohol 80 cents. New print head $38. Rather waste the bottle of alcohol :P
I have not had great success at all with my brother's canon. He ran it clogged for almost a year and I tried the above and it didn't work. I'd say the transistors in the print head probably overheated and it's shot so he bought a new one. Too bad Canon doesn't make it easier to buy new printheads.
