    For any print quality problem you need to check waste tank. For any ink jet / bubble jet printer the waste tank is located below print head's home position.

    Clean the head with lint free cloth and distilled water. If it does not improve remove the head and immerse it in liquid ammonia solution for 6 hours. Wash it thoroughly with plain water.

    Be careful liquid ammonia looks like water but drinking it will damage food pipe and may cause death.

    The inks might survive ok yet i'm no longer so beneficial appropriate to the printer. Leaving the inks put in could desire to muck up your print head. If it have been me (and that i too have a pixma) i might get rid of the inks, re-seal with the pastic covers they contain and save in a ziplock variety bag with as lots air bumped off as conceivable. for my section its greater effective to be secure than sorry. desire this enables.:-)
