blocked nozzles in the print head

I currently purchased black ink for the canon s450. Seems as though dry ink is stuck in the print head...according to the ink manufacturer. I cannot find info in www.canon.com on cleaning the head. Hope you can help!!!!!

To perform the print head cleaning procedure 1.> On your printer, press and hold the Resume button until the printer light flashes one time. When you release the button, all colors will be cleaned. When the print head cleaning begins, the POWER light starts flashing. This will continue for about 30 seconds. Wait for the light to stop flashing before you resume normal operation. 2.> Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again. 3.> If the results are satisfactory, resume normal printing. 4.> If the results are not satisfactory, you may need to execute another print head cleaning.
