Question about Canon PIXMA mini260 InkJet Photo Printer
It is a ome kind of jam in the purge unit. Open the cover and pull out the power cord, and now you can move the printhead to the left and out of your way. Use a flashlight and a folded paper towel and examine the parking ink pads where the printhead comes to rest. It is inside on the far right. You want to see if the wiper blades are stuck extended. The should be all the way back but sometimes they stick forward. Press on them gentley and see if they free up.
If they are back, press down softly on one or both of the black ink pads with the paper towel. Be careful not to get ink on your fingers and it won't come off very easy.
If the printhead won't come to the center, then its jammed into some part of the purge unit. Plug the power back in and turn the printer on. At the power on cycle starts, press gentley to the right and then release. IF that does not work, repeat the power on/off and try again but this time wiggile the head both left and right. You don't want to use any force, you are just trying to free it from the jam condition.
