    I was really hoping for the best knowledge on how to soak my head. Canon Pro-100, that is.
    I have had a problem ever since I started using Precision Colors ink in that my Cyan printhead shows pretty dead on a nozzle check. I kind of want to just soak the head in distilled water and see if that fixes the problem. Is there a video that shows how to do this with the Pro-100?

    Cyan is much better, but I have strips. Any suggestions? Should I just find another print head?

    I fixed the striping I was having using a solution of 88cc distilled water, 2cc of clear ammonia, 4cc of glycerol, and 26cc of isopropyl alcohol. I wedged a 1 in length of 1/4" tube over the ports the cartridges attach to, and rinsed the entry ports without applying any pressure to the internal plumbing of the print head. After the entry port (and whatever is immediately beyond the screen) was clear, I let the printhead sit with tubes on it with solution in them and essentially let atmospheric pressure slowly push the solution through over the course of a week. YMMV.
