How do i clean printer head on cannoni560s

I assume you've done the clean/deep clean routine.

First, check that dirty heads are actually the problem and not bad contacts at the back of the print head carrier. Remove the ink tanks (keep them upright on a piece of plastic or a paper towel) and then flip up the grey carrier retainer. The print head carrier will lift out easily. Take care - don't damage the print heads - they're very fragile!

At the back of the carrier you'll see a series of gold contacts. Clean them carefully with a soft cloth and isopropyl alcohol. Now look at the pint heads themselves. If there's dry, gunky ink on them they will need cleaning. The simplest way is to stand them in a saucer of Windex glass cleaner overnight, then rub them gently with a soft cloth or paper towel. I'm recommending Windex only because I know it works. Other products might be just as good but I don't know.

Now put the print head right-way-up on a clean paper towel and drip a drop or two of alcohol onto each of the four round metal contact plates that sit under the ink tanks. After a minute or two you should see a colored pattern on the paper - black, blue, red and yellow, corresponding to the shape of the print heads. This means that the print heads will pass ink through from the tanks and further cleaning shouldn't be necessary.

Now reinstall the print heads and replace the ink tanks. Do a deep clean to get the ink flowing again, and run a test print. It'll probably be okay. If not, leave the printer to sit for 12-24 hours then try again.

If you don't get a good test pattern, especially after a couple more cleanings, you probably have a damaged print head. You'll have to replace it. If you're lucky, you'll find one on the web that costs you less than you paid for the printer.

If the printer refuses to print at all, you have other problems, most likely a full waste tank or, worst case, a blown circuit board. You're facing a trip to your local repair center.

The i560 is a fabulous printer (which is probably why Canon discontinued it). It's worth spending some money to keep it going.

Remove cartridges.
Remove print head.
Go to sink or tub (stianless steel, not pastic type), pick up roll of paper towel on the way.
Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
Run HOT water till HOT.
Turn hot water to dribble.
Run hot water through print head, careful not to wet contacts.
When water is clear coming through print head, place print head on paper towel.
Repeat process until no colour on paper towel.
DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out to dry.
You may wish to let print head air dry overnight but I replace it after drying.
Replace print head in printer and replace cartridges.
Start printing again
I do this on all my Canon printrs every 6 months

Only prints black & blue

I have a similar problem - i can print all colours apart from red.
I've tried cleaning, deep-cleaning, and even bottom plate cleaning but of none if this improves anything.

Tried cleaning the print heads and nozzles with cotton buds, but this dont do anything. Even tried re-seating the cartridges but this does nothing either

Hope this will give you hints. To pin point directly you need to replace printer head. But before replacing please consider suction cartridge caps or nozzle by cleaning and freeing clogged airways by dettaching manually. I understand that the long time being not used has caused the problem. However if you can still use black and other colors then used it than complicating downtime in repairing procedures. Yes, you are right no need to clean deeper more than three times it will consume inks half empty. Have a nice day.
