I put some cleaning fluid in a clean black cart & run a print which might force the blockage out. I'm not sure if I dreamt it or read about it but I think some Epson printers did this.
If you do that with a Canon print head you’ll bugger it up altogether, it only works in Epson..:ep
P.S. you can do that IF you only run normal cleaning cycles, No printing…

@The Hat is correct. Any cleaning solution may not be as good a coolant for the nozzles as proper ink during printing. You run the risk of permanent nozzle burn out.

I saw yesterday that Australia lockdowned Victoria again for the 5th time because of 10 new cases of the C-word. May not be a good time to drop in on 3dogs since he lives in Victoria.

Victorians like to visit sunny Queensland in winter maybe 3dogs can visit Brisbane with a Pro10 under his arm:)
