There was a news release recently that indicated Canon was pursuing legal action against some retailers for distributing and/or manufacturing the fake (reconditioned) printheads. Can't find it at the moment but it seems Canon have taken notice.Fake printheads from aliexpress are killing the refillers badly, official not available anymore. Whats even more a problem is that bad printhrad can damage the printer or bad printer damage even oem new printhead. Canon did not solve this afaik.
We here have been saying again and again not to purchase these New/Reconditioned Fake print heads out of China, and mostly its getting through.Fake printheads from aliexpress are killing the refillers badly, official not available anymore.
Well... FWIW, I have customers who've gone that route and tried things out. From last count the success rate has been around 30-40% but these are people who've taken a punt and not expected miracles. Long term I've not had any data come back but these were mostly people I've spoken to at length so they weren't shills.We here have been saying again and again not to purchase these New/Reconditioned Fake print heads out of China, and mostly its getting through.
But then we’re also getting others that say they’ve got one and they work great, when we know that’s not true, because these replacement heads may work but only for a very short while, and we never hear from that users again.. I wonder why !
i was refilling, but i went back to OEM, for the longevity i have a pro 9000 MK2, i will be trying the bulk for what i can get, but they will be bulk canon, as was descused in a different thread. there are only a couple of colors in bulk. i really do little printying, for the higher cost does not matter.The glory days when the ip4000 was king. I'm still avoiding having to use original canon carts and although the days of resetters seem to be over. Still there remains refillable carts. Not the same but at least there is an alternative to the ridiculous prices of of OEM ink. I still have an Ip4700 along with a couple of MG 6250 printers and an ip7250 with compatible ink carts still printimg out fine photos. Am I alone? Please tell me that there are others who appreciate the the wonderful world of Canon printers.
