How can I clean the printhead of pixma ma800


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

HP 1200 Business Inkjet, dutifully prints BLANK info page from printer button.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Print is not solid enough to read


Either head need cleaning or the ink is running low.
You have to clean the print head manually. The head is on the ink Cartridge.
Look in your manual for a picture. A picture may also be on your computer instruction on how to change a cartridge.
A cleaning solution is available to clean the head. I get mine when I buy ink to refill.
I hope this help you
