How to Repair a Canon Pixma MX700 Print Head

Like all inkjet printers, the Canon Pixma MX700 relies on the print head to function properly. Canon print heads contain a series of nozzles that spray small drops of ink onto the paper. Over time the print head nozzles become clogged, causing the printer to print streaked or blank pages. When this happens, clean the print head nozzles to repair the Canon Pixma MX700 print head.

Instructions

  • 1

    Connect and turn on the printer.

    Select Devices and Printers from the Start menu, then right-click the printer icon and click the “Printing Preferences” button.

  • 3

    Click the Maintenance tab on the Canon Properties screen.

  • 4

    Click the “Cleaning” button to perform a regular cleaning or the “Deep Cleaning” button to perform a more powerful cleaning.

    Select either the All Colors radio button to clean both the black and color print head nozzles, the Black radio button to clean only the black print head nozzle or the Color radio button to clean only the color print head nozzle.

  • 7
