Question about Canon PIXMA MP510 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This worked for me a few times so far - i saw a picture guide on e-how but I can't find it at the moment.
Open the printer cover
Take out the printer cartridges, keep them upside down and put some sticky tape or the original orange seals that come with the cartridges over the outlet holes, then turn them back.
Remove the printhead by lifting up the grey lever and taking out the black printhead (it's the black half-box with 4 slots in it and the ink-filters at the bottom). Soak the box in cleaning solution overnight to dissolve the dried ink. Shake it off until it's dry and reload it all. Now try it.
If it's still got lines, it's a bit more of a hassle. Repeat the steps above, but you'll need to find a pen barrel to fit over the filters - one for the black and one for the colours, or cut them to size. Rinse the print-head in water, then submerge the print head half-way in water, fit one pen-barrel over the black filter and suck water in (it's not easy) until the water is clear. Do the same for each of the others with the other pen. Dry the print head by shaking it (don't use tissue - you can use a hairdryer) and re-install the whole lot. It's worked twice for me now. Try not to let the ink run dry which will help.
