    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    If one goal was to virtue signal sustainability, then they would openly state the carryover aspect. That gains a few points from millenials and younger for sure. However, the real reason is that it reduced the cost to introduce a new model. The real sustainable signal would have been to say...."...

    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    The Pro-100 and Pro-10 printheads heralded a new generation of much more reliable printheads. The ones in the CLI-8 and PGI-9 as well as even the Pro-1 were somewhat flaky. I recently had one in ax MX870 220/221 die on me recently while it was printing...it just stopped dead and the B203 came...

    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    OTOH, it sure would reduce costs quite a bit if the same printhead was used. They could even give a new number, and you'd never know. All they need is to reprogram one byte inside the ID number of the printhead and bam.....new printhehad!. Inventorying spare and replacement parts is a big...

    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    The new inkset was made for the Pro-1 which was introduced prior to the Pro-100. After the Pro-100 the Pro-1 sat as the 13" pigment machine. Ask the Hat when he bought his. Then the Pro-10 was introduced and then after a while Canon pulled the plug on the Pro-1. Initially the Pro-1 appeared to...

    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    Toolman's channel apparently now sits amongst one of the top ten channels on photography and printing. Many people tune in to podcasts after it is done when they have time. So perhaps many more tune but when they are able to fast forward etc.

    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    I thought about that. We know that the Pro-10 has been an extremely reliable printer and more so that the standby 9500. Given that extreme level of reliability it is potentially possible to reduce its maintenance cycles so less ink is wasted. Personally I think the clean routines are over the...

    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    Well the Pro300 inks are I am 99.9% sure the same inks as the Pro-1000, 2000, etc. The Lucia Pro inkset. Canon will not make a new inkset for such a low volume printer. This has been their practice for nearly two decades. Now the other thing is that I said the Lucia Pro and did not state Pro300...

    Looking at the new Canon PRO-300

    Fact: The Lucia Pro Matte and Photo Black are actually not as dense as the Lucia ones in the Pro-1 and Pro-10. I tested them very carefully in 2017 while developing my Signature Edition inkset for the Pro-10 and 1. Ink Stained Fingers will also appreciate that Canon then uses a finely tuned ICC...

    Problem with Photo Cyan ink cartridge pulling through - Canon Pixma Pro 10s

    Here is a video of someone using a Water Pik. Not exactly the way I would use it, I think the length of time in use is a little low but he compensates with more ammonia and he gets more suds. Do it in a larger sink, use a shield of some type. I would also use water in the water pik for a better...

    Problem with Photo Cyan ink cartridge pulling through - Canon Pixma Pro 10s

    I sell ink so I won't say what the problem is. You've got deposits building up inside the printhead. Either the exit is constricted or the heaters are not cooling off fast enough and the heat is retained to the point it continue to expand the bubble when it should have been burst. I already...

    Problem with Photo Cyan ink cartridge pulling through - Canon Pixma Pro 10s

    Analyze the funny trailing edges and think for a second. Why is it fuzzy?.....what happens inside the printhead and inside the nozzle chambers. Ink boils violently. Pressure builds up. Pressure must be relieved. Normally this is entirely outwards immediately towards the paper. Do any of the...

    Problem with Photo Cyan ink cartridge pulling through - Canon Pixma Pro 10s

    From the looks of it, the simplest and solution readily at hand is to put in a set of new OEM tanks with OEM ink and then perform a head clean. Even if not perfect at that point, I would then proceed to perform some very light printing and see if it improves. Make the printing intermittent...

    Artisan 1430 black streaks

    To put things in perspective. Will an automotive dealer replace cars when they are worn out due to a consistent weakness in a part in a given old model? Even top of the line Rolls Royce and Mercedes BMWs and Lexuses also break down....during their warranty, they will cover it, beyond that? ...

    Artisan 1430 black streaks

    Sorry to report that this a failure mode of the 1430 and all its predecssors and narrower width relatives. These will include SP1400, Artisan 50, Stylus Photo R280, R260, and their "Claria" 6 channel dating all the way back to the late 2000's. The problem is that the printhead has an internal...

    Help trying to solve blurry/double black text when only in the "Plain Paper" setting (using a photo paper setting comes out perfect)

    Try flushing the tank, drying it out properly and then refill. Ideally with an ink that has slightly different properties. Test that it beads a little less than the one you are currently using. Chances are flushing will allow the print to return to normal but a different more suitable ink will...

    Epson P400 vs. Canon Pro10 print quality comparison

    You can obtain more control of the CO on Pro-10s using form controls which I am not sure has ever been discussed on internet forums. By gaining control of the CO output one can optimize output to mate with different papers to better match what can be output. So one can even use the CO on...

    Canon releases new firmware for Pixma PRO 10s

    First regarding creative park restrictions, the inability to use that was discovered way back in the CLI-8 days....the first chips from Canon. Canon was able to determine even back then if a chip had been reset. Moving forward from that, the disabling of services with third party chips is...

    Refilling cli281and pgi280 carts

    Hat my 270/271 printer has over 24,000 pages printed. This is much more than the average purchaser intends to do with this category of printer. That is 5 CASES of paper not reams. Reflling as well. Clearly if you know what you are doing, it can survive refilling. The aftermarket tanks are...

    Refilling cli281and pgi280 carts

    I'm in the middle of making super profiles for the Pro-10 over 60 papers, lots of fine art papers with 5 lighting conditions. There will be nearly a full day of my Ryzen7 crunching the numbers continuously to come, reading the targets themselves will take two days. A monumental task. Printing...

    Blocked nozzles

    The issue is not a "blockage" but a film that needs to be scrubbed off. Pushing liquid through will work to some degree but not if the film is thoroughly encrusted. For that some level of scrubbing action/pressure is required. Wonder why a garden hose and a pressure washer differs in their...
