Consumers will be able to clean printer ink pads themselves, according to one expert.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Rick Maybury claimed that, while the task can be a "messy job" that will void the warranty, people can attempt to fix it themselves.

Answering a reader who wanted to clean the pads of his Canon Pixma MP130 device, he advised to firstly disconnect the printer from the mains and remove the main panel, before using a screwdriver to access the ink pads.

From here, he recommended people to "carefully take them out of the tray and rinse them through using methylated spirits. When they are clean and dry replace and reassemble".

While it is possible to attempt such a task, customers should not take any risks if they are at all unconfident of carrying out the repair.

For people who want to ensure that their printer is fixed efficiently, it is always advisable to consult a professional.
