How to Clean, Fix, Repair, Unclog, Dry, Clogged Print Heads on  CANON EPSON HP ,  Lexmark, Dell, Olivetti etc...

Ever had an inkjet printer which had been left unused for a while and the inks DRIED UP?
Then you'll probably know how expensive it can be?  Especially if you had to throw away.
  1. Almost Full Inks?
  2. A Perfectly Good Print Head?
  3. Or Worse Your Favorite Printer!
But why trash them?  If your printer prints with WHITE LINES or not at all?  Did you know 98% just have dry ink clogging the tiny jets inside the print head which prevents the ink from appearing on the paper.  Must admit I feel sorry for all those kids whose parents have admitted that they wrongly blamed their children for using up, all of their expensive ink (which can cost almost 30 times the price of Champagne).  Truth is, inkjet ink is meant to dry rapidly on paper to prevent smudging, but if left unused it forms a skin just like a cup of coffee... Then you have the start of an inkjet clog!
Today's inkjet printers really are "Tiny Miracles" which everyone seems to take for granted.  As a Qualified Graphic Designer, I needed a Quality Printer for work so I bought my second inkjet printer 25 years ago in 1990. It was a second hand Canon CLC 10 (copier / scanner, which I still have!).  A snip then at just £2,500 (GB Pounds) as new ones cost almost $15,000 then.  Each ink (x4) cost an arm and a leg about £65.00 each (about $125) and only printed on special paper at $0.35 a sheet.

In those days desktop printing (in color) was convenient but very expensive!  So I began refilling my own inks which saved me about 90%!!! Friends found out and asked me to refill cartridges for them, but some had lain empty in draws gathering dust for years!  So I wasted quite a lot of time and ink.

Over a period of time I came up with a print head cleaning solution and a few home made simple tools to unclog almost anything. I soon realised testing them BEFORE REFILLING was the TRICK!  And saved lots of expensive ink!  After all there is no point refilling and then finding the cartridge would not print.  Eventually, we started to refill inkjets for computer shops and began successfully refilling almost all makes and model of inkjet. Our inkjet refills spread far and wide. Then technicians asked us if we could help to unclog Epson and Canon printers (with fixed print heads) because they had been using full sets of inks just trying to get them working often without success...  So we started to make copies of the tools and cleaner we were using and began selling them to shops.  People would say it worked like 'Magic' and so "Magic Inkjet Flush .com" (print head cleaning kits) began.

Today, a similar desktop scanner / printer can be bought for just the COST of ONE of those inkjet cartridges, although the ink is probably more expensive!  Back then each cartridge held about 64 mls of ink. Today some have just 10% of that.  And some people just use them for printing a rare school project, which means inks dry up in between.  Inkjet printers really need to be used at least once every week, which keeps the ink fresh inside the print head.  You should try to print something using black and the 3 primary colours (Cyan - Blue, Magenta - Red, and Yellow) That way the inks will actually last longer.

However it's fairly common now to have a wide format printer, like my new  Canon® imagePROGRAF iPF9100 which has 2 PF-03 print heads and  12,000 tiny ink jets / nozzles, and capable of printing 16 Million Colours, all in the space of a large postage stamp. So they really are amazing!  But if your inkjet printer has been left unused for weeks, months or years then it's the same old problem.  Once dried ink begins to clog those tiny ink jets, the ink quickly forms into a thick jelly and it's bye bye to printing.  Then people start to throw away almost full inks, good print heads, even printers then it can be expensive. 


When 15+ of those tiny jets become clogged all together. WHITE LINES will initially appear on your prints, then eventually blank pages.   Most people assuming they are out of ink... replace the inks and in the case of an inkjet cartridge, with a built in print head like: Lexmark, Dell and most HP. The problem is quickly resolved and you can print once again, although you are definitely out of pocket!

But in the case of an Epson or Canon printer, where the print head is built into the actual printer.  Simply replacing the inks rarely solves the problem and you can quickly use up 2 sets of new inks, just trying to use the cleaning programme.  But once you have tried that, most people wrongly think they have an electrical fault so it ends up in the trash.  But assuming your inkjet printer worked OK before a period of non use?  Usually you just need to use a little "Magic Inkjet Flush" to dissolve the ink clog and your printer will print, like NEW once again!
You see most inkjet printers, work like mini kettles (up to 3900 of them)  As each drop of ink travels from the ink reservoir (or sponge inside the cartridge) down into the print head it is heated up to form tiny bubbles.  Then at a rate of 24,000 DROPLETS PER SECOND they shoot at the paper from the print head nozzles which are tiny holes, positioned just a few mm above the paper. These then form your text or image on the paper.
Inkjet printers would not be so popular if the ink was not fast drying because it would smudge, so next time your "Tiny Miracle" refuses to print...  Why not just do what I and 1000s of other printer owners do, and simply use a little "Magic Inkjet Flush" to save yourself a $mall fortune on wasted ink!

This easy to use 'Flush kit' gets your expensive ink, flowing again FAST and you can use it EVERY TIME it has been left unused.  In fact "Most customers get their money back! = The first time they need to use it."  It's how it got it's name "Magic" because Magic...

Once clogged it stops your expensive ink from flowing, and initially shows as WHITE LINES or blank pages if totally blocked.  That's when most people especially schools who throw away 1000 of almost FULL INKS after school breaks just because they wrongly think they are out of ink.  Next time it happens to you try a little Magic instead.
