Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I would like to try and clean the print head on my canon i860 printer before I invest in either a new print head or new printer altogether. I can't figure out how to remove it. I don't see any screws readily visable. Any thoughts on how I can do this without breaking something?
The gray-colored arm (it's not that small) is to the right of the cyan cartridge. It is the arm or extension of the gray-colored hinged cover. Remove all ink cartridges, lift the gray-colored arm up, and pull the print head out. Clean the print head with a cotton ball soaked with water or rubbing alcohol. Dry and re-install the print head.

There is a small arm to the right (that's your right while looking at the front of the machine) of the printhead. It simply lifts up and then the head will be easily pulled out. There are no screws or anything.
