Learn how to clean or deeply clean the print head of the PIXMA G2270 from a Windows PC. You can also replace the ink in the print head. If you're experiencing poor print quality (streaked / banded prints, incorrect colors, blank pages, etc.), some of the print head nozzles may be clogged.


The print head cleaning and deep cleaning functions allow you to clear up clogged print head nozzles. Perform print head cleaning if printing results are not satisfactory or if a specific color fails to print, even though there is enough ink.

If you perform a deep cleaning and the condition still does not improve, replace the ink in the print head.
