    Reviving a Canon pro 10

    Be aware that too many cleaning cycles in a short time is not good for the print head. I have mentioned this before. https://www.printerknowledge.com/threads/canon-pixma-pro-10-clogged-nozzles-printhead.15729/#post-137278 Check out what I have said before, on Oct 21, 2022.

    Pixma PRO-9500 II / Colormunki migrated to Windows 11

    I have made drivers work (on Windows 8.1), by the following: right-clicking on the exe file select Properties, pick the Compatibility Tab, check mark the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" then select either Windows 7, or, by trial and error, go down to earlier versions of OS until...

    Canon PIXMA Pro-10 clogged nozzles/printhead?

    Just a reminder! It's good practice to follow the rule of no more than 2 cleaning cycles per hour to prevent overheating then nozzles. You might think that if you do other printing in between cleaning cycles, it's still the nozzles that don't work well that might not put enough ink through and...

    Unable to save a print setting for portrait

    I bend my knee to your luck with your OS. I am not so lucky, but then I do develop software, and evry once-in-a-while does involve the odd peek and "poke" into the OS (peek/poke are old old term for reading/writing register values). The result is that sometimes the O/S retaliates and in it's...

    Unable to save a print setting for portrait

    With all due respect to @The Hat, and @Artur5", it is noteworthy that their advice, the way I read it, is for cases when the system allows the normal operation of the printer driver to allows saving of any preferences. The write up I gave above...

    Unable to save a print setting for portrait

    There were times when I had problems with settings not being saved. I discovered that it usually was a matter of "write" permissions. First, I would uninstall the drivers, but also select "remove" or "delete" the files. For the reinstall make sure you are logged-in as "Administrator". If...

    What's your highest page count you've seen on a Pixma PRO-100 or PRO-200 printhead?

    I see in other postings here that "user care" is important. I do second and third that. Without bragging I give my care a big part in the longevity of my Pro-100. First, one thing I always do, "as soon" as I get a low ink indication, I replace the cart . In my opinion, when a print head...

    Pro-100 gray is darker than black

    My Pro-100 nozzle checks show gray darker than black. It's not a new issue, it's been like that for a long time. But the question is, does this point at a problem? I have paid attention to make sure the "gray" carts in my 3 sets have been refilled with the correct "gray" color, for probably...

    How Long Maximum Could You Submerge the Heads in the Cleaning Solution?

    I concur with that. As newbie I wanted cheap fixes, not costly replacements :cool: It took me a long time to get to the point of having the "feeling" whether something "may" work. And then to the point where you have the discipline to not try something too hard because you may damage...

    How Long Maximum Could You Submerge the Heads in the Cleaning Solution?

    I can't remember how long I soaked my head ^_^ It was long enough for my dear wife to start n...g...g, sorry, I mean questioning, how long will "this thing" sit here? I would say a week to 10 days, changing the paper towel a couple of times a day. I always looked for hint of color on the...

    How Long Maximum Could You Submerge the Heads in the Cleaning Solution?

    First, I never "submerge" the head. I only soak the ports. Place the head on a paper towel in a small bowl, add solution to keep the towel wet. Replace the towel from time to time. Your patience will determine how long you can/will soak it. Obviously the longer the better. I know, I had...

    Looking to replace a much older Canon printer; current or older model?

    If it's listed for Win 7, there is a chance. The question is 64 bit or 32 bit. Win 7 was not that great for supplying 32 bit drivers. So the hard part will be finding first a 64 driver. If it work you are OK. If it doesn't, search for a 32 bit driver, and then you have a chance. I remember...

    black and white printing without using color inks?

    Sorry, but my memory doesn't go back that far. It's been a while. If I quoted models I would probably get it wrong, and just confuse the issue. However, I may not be totally correct about not being able to continue printing in black if a color goes empty. My Pro-100 lets me print when a...

    black and white printing without using color inks?

    I have had 2 Canon inkjet printers, 1 HP, and 1 Epson, they all could be told to print in Black (Gray shades) only. However, I have never seen a printer that allows you to carry on printing if 1 or more cartridges are out of ink. That's an alarm condition. I have often thought that would be a...

    Best place to buy QY6-0084 print head for Canon Pro 100

    I certainly agree with @PeterBJ and @The Hat, that the best place to bye Canon part is Canon. But Canon also stops handling parts on item they consider obsolete. At that point they sell off their stock, and let "others" handle them. I don't know if that's the case with the Pro-100, but it...

    Best place to buy QY6-0084 print head for Canon Pro 100

    Hi @danno, I got mine (some) years ago, when Canon, or some Vendor, seemed to be selling off old stock PRo-100 for $50. I bought two of those. I live in Canada, so I had them shipped to Sweet Grass near the Canadian border in Montana. There was somebody that would store them for a small...
