    GI-26 Ink for Maxify printers (GI-56 in Europe)

    I have no idea why the octopus.de inks started to cause problems, anyway it went away with other inks. 2500 C-M-Y Maxify carts are empty at 47g, no biblical multiplication of ink here. I refill now again the official way when the chip shows empty (about every 2 months with my volume).

    GI-26 Ink for Maxify printers (GI-56 in Europe)

    Not smart from both of us :eek:. The Maxify ink is named BK. But the octopus-office.de 'BK' ink had glossy patches on office paper, that's why I thought MBK would be better, since I don't print photos with the Maxify. Wrong, genuine BK has smooth and even black surfaces on office and photo...

    GI-26 Ink for Maxify printers (GI-56 in Europe)

    From all older large format printers (Lucia ink). Same as in the PRO-9500. My mistake was trying with MBK.

    GI-26 Ink for Maxify printers (GI-56 in Europe)

    My Maxify is as new since I refill the colors with GI-56. Large format OEM ink needed regular cleaning cycles, but for BK PFI-701BK works extremely well. It is indeed rather fussy about ink .

    Canon pro 10s Line Though my prints Top to bottom

    There are other irregularities around the line. Maybe a printhead travelling speed problem. Could be the printer was stored in a dirty/dusty location. Did you check the timing belt is clean ? (be carefull with this) Sticky sliding bars ? (never seen this though).

    Canon pro10s poor nozzle check result

    I left my PRO-10 unused and switched off 4 weeks several times and never had any problem. Same with my PRO-9500's before.

    Is it dead - Canon Pixma Pro 10-S, 26 flashes, error 6700

    Thanks Manu. Regarding printer potties, I once installed one on my MX7600 All-in-one (using the same PGI-9 carts as the PRO-9500) and I made the error to place the potty beneath the printer. This increased the ink purge volumes considerably (due to the ink column in the narrow tube). Don't...

    Is it dead - Canon Pixma Pro 10-S, 26 flashes, error 6700

    Thanks for the info. This suggests the PRO-100 battery is on the back right, different from the PRO-10 ?

    Canon pro10s poor nozzle check result

    Try first to unclog the printhead, it will print without filter too. Use patience, not force.

    My MAXIFY 5350 is on refill ink

    After all the level indicated by the chip is just a nice to have. As you discovered, the printhead has an ink level sensor and will raise an error when the cart is really empty. Only problem I am afraid is you need a cart with a non-empty chip to reset this.

    My MAXIFY 5350 is on refill ink

    Did you try to clean the chip contacts with isopropanol ? Worked for me.

    My MAXIFY 5350 is on refill ink

    As mentioned elsewhere the black channel was clogging more and more, I suspect the octopus-office.de BK ink I used several years without problems lost quality (maybe the pigments sedimented). I tried large format MBK, it solved the problem for some time, but not to my satisfaction. I even...

    Canon pro10s poor nozzle check result

    As you experienced applying force is not the good method. The PRO-10 printheads can live long if you print regularly - although one or two months wouldn't be a problem. I had the best results with abandoned printheads by soaking in demineralized water with a drop of good hand dishwashing liquid...

    Can I use HP's ink C8750A with Canon pro10?

    Watch your nozzle checks with a magnifying glass and have a known working ink available to revert, but chances are it is possible. PRO-10 printheads are rather sturdy.

    Does Canon PG-BK ink expire past the listed dates?

    I recently refilled my Maxify in despair with large format BK ink expired in 2009 :eek:. The black nozzles were clogging more and more (using 3th party ink) and the GI-56 bottles were sold out. I was fearing for the printhead. After a few cleaning cycles the nozzle check was perfect again ! As...

    Same reason you must not overfill I suppose.
