Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My printer told me to replace the large black ink tank. After I did that, paper runs thru and is blank. I ran the clean nozzle checks, deep cleaning and only get a 8 light colored, very faint markings and no color, no checked print. I ran the deep cleaning and same.
I had the same problem after a long period of sitting idle , the ink clogs in the cartridge tray and no amount of cleaning clears it, you just use ink. I know it says don;t dissanble the print head but I have done it twice now and if you're careful its fine, remove the two screws that hold the printhead to the underside of the cartridge holder and gently lift the head out starting from the opposite side to where the copper coloured sheet goes around the corner from side to bottom it hinges on this sheet and it held in position by the screws and the two extremeties of the white printhead block.using tweezers remove the rubber seal which usually stick to the printhead - carefully, clean the printhead I used Maplins electronic foam cleaner spray and left the whole head tied in a plastic bag overnight, or several hours it cleans fast with the spray.
take the head out and just let the solvent evaporate, or wash it under the tap the trick is to refit the rubber to the holes in the cartridge holder first and then put the printhead back in position and lock it in place with the screws. should be fine.do a head alignment print all the colours should be sorted.
