Re: Canon Pro 10 sat for 2 years

If the ink has dried in the carts it also will be in the printhead. I ruined printheads using the printer cleaning cycles (they are made to sell ink :)).

Personally I would remove the printhead and bath it a night in a bottom of demineralised water (up to the ink inlets).

Dry with paper towel and a hairdryer (or let try on a warm place) and reinstall.

Apply some pressure on the carts to see if the ink is still liquid and the outlet sponge is wet. If so you could try to reinstall, but stop if you can't get a clean nozzle check after 2 or 3 cleaning cycles.

Success!
