Should I perform a clean nozzle head

I have a Canon pro 100 printer which I have not used in at least 2 years.

Getting ready to start printing.  It has been sitting idle with ink in the nozzle head.

I have performed a nozzle check which did not display any problems...for which i was appreciative.


However, with the passage of time sitting idle and with an eye to an abundance of caution, I was just wondering if it still might be a good idea to perform a "clean nozzle" procedure.


Or, perhaps, my question is, even if it is not required, an I assume it will do no harm except to use some additional ink?


Thank you

Hi chLj,


Performing a printhead cleaning will not harm your PIXMA PRO-100.
