From your printer properties, choose Device Settings and click the Preferences option. From the preferences menu, select Services and click Clean Printhead. To stop this issue install a new cartridge before the old cartridge gets dry. Check if your printer is showing warning signs. If you see warnings, immediately replace the cartridge with a new one. Don’t ignore the warning sign. Keeping the cartridge as it is will start to introduce air into the print nozzle and causes a blockage. Use only the Canon MX922 Ink cartridges recommended by the manufacturer.
