Question about Canon PIXMA® mini260 InkJet Photo Printer
Clean the print head and nozzles on the cartridge :
Follow these steps to clean the print head :-
Lift the printer cover to move the print carriage to the center position.
Press the tab on each cartridge and then lift to remove the cartridge.
Lift the lock to release the printhead, then lift the printhead out of the cradle.
Rinse the printhead with hot water. Gently remove any buildup of ink and paper residue that is stuck to the bottom of the head and clogging the holes and slits. Rinse until the water runs clean.
Remove the two screws from the ceramic plate on the bottom of the printhead.
Ease the ceramic plate away from the body of the printhead with gentle pressure. Run hot water behind the plate. Gently remove any buildup behind the plate. Rinse until the water runs clean.
Reassemble the printhead and then reinsert it into its cradle.
Lower the locking lever until it snaps into place, then reinstall the ink cartridges.
Close the printer cover, then perform any alignment adjustments recommended in the printer's operator manual.
STEPS TO CLEAN NOZZLES :
Disconnect the printer from its power supply and remove the printing cartridges from the device. Most printers contain at least two cartridges, one for black and one for color.
Locate the small holes in the printer where the toner cartridges were installed. Place 10 drops of isopropyl alcohol into each nozzle using an eyedropper.
Use a Q-Tip moistened with alcohol to swab around the nozzles to loosen and remove any dried ink that has accumulated on top. Allow the alcohol to evaporate.
Run the printer's cleaning and diagnostics test. Repeat steps 2 through 4 as needed until the printer produces clean copy.
