This article provides information on cleaning the print head for the PIXMA PRO-100 from its operation panel.



Clean the print head if horizontal white streaks are present in the printed nozzle check pattern. Cleaning unclogs the nozzles and restores the print head condition. Cleaning the print head consumes ink, so clean the print head only when necessary.


  1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

  2. Hold down the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes once, then release it immediately.

    The printer starts cleaning the print head.

    The cleaning will be complete when the POWER lamp lights after flashing.

    Do not perform any other operations until the printer completes the cleaning of the print head. This takes about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Check the print head condition.

    Print the nozzle check pattern to check the print head condition.
