I tried a similiar post but can't find it, must have done something wrong. Not everyone gets to use their Inkjets everyday. A week or a month can go by easily and then we find clogged print heads. When I know I won't be using my new printer, a Canon, I am going to start removing the print head, reinstall the ink cartridges, all outside of the printer and store the print head assembly in a sealed suitable plastic container with damp paper towels to see if this will stop or at least slow down the drying out process of the ink in the print head etc. Possible corrosion of the contacts should be less of a concern compared to how quickly a print head can get clogged. What do you think? Has anyone tried this?
