Question about Canon i9100 InkJet Photo Printer
Everything was printing ok, except for some messy black marks that would not go away with the normal maintenance features, these were hairlike and on the side.
i went into the printer and "wiped" some of the residue found on the printer head, the roll bar on the bottom and the messy well in the back right.
now i am hardly getting a print and the black hairy marks still appear.
what to do?
If you tried to wipe the printhead, you may have clogged it instead.
The nozzles are microscopic in size and can be clogged by most cleaning materials.
You need something that produces absolutely no fuzz.
My best results have been when the printhead is removed, sprayed with Windex or similar, then blotted with a hard paper towel.
After this, you may have to run the cleaning routine multiple times to restore all colors.
If you are a heavy user of the machine, you may have accumulations of paper fiber that is acting as a wick and depositing ink on the paper while passing through.
I have on occasion had to strip the printer of its plastics, bathed the entire machine in a home-made solution similar to the Windex formula, spray it clear of the solution with distilled water and then allow it to dry for several days before reassembling.
This is obviously one reason I'm retired- can't compete with the cheap labor building them.
