    Canon Pro1 troublesome printer ?

    Seeing that the last 3 threads of this subforum are dedicated to Pro1 problems, I wonder if that means that this model is very finicky/unreliable and more prone to failure than general purpose machines or even the Pro10/100 series. In all logic Canon sells several times more Pro100 than Pro1...

    Canon CLI-8 chips for free.

    After switching from a Canon Pro9000 to a Pro10s, I have no more use for CLI-8 cartridges. International shipping for 100 grams and above is quite high, Therefore, I removed the chips from the Canon OEM carts. They weigh next to nothing and are cheaper to ship. I’m offering the lot, along with...

    Canon Pro pigment printers nearly clog proof ? I begin to differ.

    Last two days I’ve been dealing with an stubborn clog in the magenta channel of my Pro10s. The printer had been idle for only three days. I printed something on Monday and everything was fine. Yesterday, before a small print job I decided to do a nozzle check, just in case.. and damn it, the...

    Brother printers. How much powder inside starter toner ?

    Recently I purchased a Brother HL-L5000D. As most of you know, these printers come with a special cartridge toner, called starter, that doesn’t have a reset gear and also yields less pages (2000) than the regular toners for this printer ( TN3430=3000 pages and TN3480=8000 pages) When I had...

    Sponge degradation=ink leaking. Is this common?

    Much has been talked about ink starvation due to dried ink in the sponge blocking the flow but, what about the contrary, sponge not able to retain ink ? I have experienced this issue three times and always with the black pigment (Canon OEM PGI-5 or BCI-3ebk cartridges). All of a sudden, black...

    Canon Tech. support in need of support.

    Some days ago I changed Internet provider so the older router was replaced with another one. My Pro10s didn’t connect with the new router because it had a different SSID. That was expected so I ran the IJ Network utility provided by Canon that allows you to change the network settings recorded...

    Canon Pro10s new owner. Some considerations.

    Finally the printhead of my Pro9000 said politely goodbye, so I took the plunge into the pigment world with a Canon Pro10s. After almost three weeks, those are my initial impressions : 1- On the controversial matter of cleaning/purging cycles. I’ve been printing something every single day since...

    Canon CLI-8 supplies.

    Sadly the printhead of my Canon Pro9000 churned the last page a few days ago. So, I decided to move along, go pigment and pick up a new Pro10s. Therefore, I have no use for the remaining CLI-8 supplies of my Pro9000 (bulk ink, cartridges, chips and resetter). I’ll gladly send whatever of...

    Ailing printead of IP3000. Possible Options ?.

    The printhead of my Ip3000 is starting to give me problems. Many nozzles on the smaller cyan rows are clogged or dead, No amount of manual or automated cleaning has solved the issue at all. I suspect that this printhead won’t last long. I know these symptoms. I’m faced with several options : -...

    Canon IP3000 weird nozzle test

    Recently I thought of getting a spare printhead for my trusty ip30000. Since new units from genuine vendors cost as much as 75euro, when you add vat and shipping, I decided to gamble in one of these Chinese offers from Ali-Express. Maybe I’d get lucky and fetch one in good working order for only...

    Pro9000: Low ink warning not working for some colors.

    I purchased recently a secondhand Pro9000 in great shape, including the printhead. Not a single nozzle missing in the extended test. After being working some weeks with no issues, yesterday I noticed an almost sudden disappearance of yellow color in the prints. As the ink status for yellow...

    Canon Pro10 service manual

    I’m considering to purchase a Canon Pro10. Not right now; maybe next year. Looking for info on this printer I found of course lots of reviews and the regular manuals available on Canon’s web but I was hoping to find also a service manual. I have them for all my former Canons (ip4000, ip4500...

    WTB: Canon Pixma Pro9000 or Pro 9000 Mark II

    After my old Pixma Pro9000 died recently, I'm looking for a compatible replacement so I can use my current printhead, CLI8 cartridges and bulk ink. I'm not interested in other models like the pro9500, pro100, etc. Due to shipping costs and Customs fees, only offers from Europe, please. I...

    Pixma ip4500 : automatic remap of defective nozzles ?

    Some months ago, the printhead of my ip4000 died and I wasn't unable to find any more reliable sources of QY6-0049 new units, being discontinued for some years already. Therefore I bought an used ip4500 in, according to seller words, perfect shape. Now I found out that printheads for the ip4500...
