Cleaning the Print Heads from Your Computer

The print head cleaning function allows you to clear up clogged print head nozzle. Perform print head cleaning if printing is faint or a specific color fails to print, even though there is enough ink.

The procedure for cleaning the print head is as follows:
Cleaning

  1. Open the printer driver setup window

  2. Click Cleaning on the Maintenance tab

    When the Print Head Cleaning dialog box opens, select the ink group for which cleaning is to be performed.
    Click Initial Check Items to display the items you need to check before performing cleaning.

  3. Execute cleaning

    Make sure that the machine is on and then click Execute.

    Print head cleaning starts.

  4. Complete cleaning

    The Nozzle Check dialog box opens after the confirmation message.

  5. Check the results

    To check whether the print quality has improved, click Print Check Pattern. To cancel the check process, click Cancel.

    If cleaning the head once does not resolve the print head problem, clean it once more

The orange light on Pixma ip4300 is flashing 5 times.


Hello, the error you describe is for a faulty print head. When the printer is on open the cartridge acces panel, remove all cartridges, remove the printhead and check the printer and printhead golden contacts. If they are dirty clean them with alcohool (make sure, when you clean the printers contacts, the printer cable is pluged off the power). If that dont help you will have to change your printhead (more than 100$).

How do i remove and clean the printhead from a canon pixma mp780?


Hi there. i understand that you want to clean the printhead of your canon pixma mp780, dont worry im here to help you out with this.
do this following steps in order for you to clean the printhead.If the printed Nozzle Check Pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head.
  1. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel repeatedly until [MAINTENANCE] appears in the LCD.

  2. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] or [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Take Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary ok?

  3. Press the <OK> button.

  4. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshings if the pattern is not correct.
hope that this steps helped you a lot in cleaning the printhead of your printer.Good Luck!

How to clean a printhead for canon pixma MP540 . i have used the deep clean but no help


Deep clean should clean the printhead, but it's an expensive way to do it, since a lot of ink is used.

Do you have lines of non printable areas? Maybe replacing the printhead will help.

May be out of ink in certain nozzles on the printhead.
