I believe that I have burnt out the print head in my Canon Pro-10s so need to purchase a new one. Canon spares use to be available from CRC Tasktron Ltd but they have gone into liquidation. I phoned Canon support and have been told that they hope to appoint a new parts supplier in the "next week or two". If I take them at their word thats on or before the 20th Feb 2024.

The print head is part number QY6-0085 and is still used in the Prograf 300 so is still being manufactured. Searching elsewhere while ignoring sites such as ebay and similar I have found the UK site : https://www.printerspareparts.co.uk/pages/about-us-1 . The site is owned by Micro Communications (Leeds) Ltd and the company address is in Cornwall. They claim to only supply genuine Canon parts. I wonder if anyone on this forum has any experience of buying from them, as I don't want to spend a lot of money for refurbished or similar?

best wishes

Simon

I can't tell you anything about printerspareparts, but there wasn't any problem getting printheads for the Pro10/100/200/300 until some time ago. Then Tasktron was 'kaput' while the printheads for these printers went out of stock ( and have been so for months ) on the websites of two reliable vendors that I know in continental Europe (E-parts in France and C1-supplies in Germany).

Thanks for the information. I think I will wait and see if Canon manage to appoint a new spares supplier in the next few weeks. Otherwise I'll have to start looking for a replacement printer.

If you can’t get a new head from a Distributor in the coming weeks, then PM me because I’ve got one spare for sale..
