    I can't compete with those record refill numbers - I enjoy the convenience of printers with a CISS or large cartridges - 220ml - for one refill

    Thanks PeterBJ for your information will get a new battery to be on the safe side.
    it would also enable me to check the stock of empty alleged Magenta carts I got off E-bay they looked spotless.

    You can always rely on expert help on this Forum.

    Further to PeterBJ's advice re batteries on Redsetter confirm I have installed a new high-quality battery. Now all the carts get the short and long flash.

    Thanks again

    I still have an old (2008) iP4500 semi-retired, that I use from time to time because it’s not good for high quality photos, but still acceptable, it has the original print head in it and has clocked up over 54,000, I wonder is that a record for an original print head... :hu

    It might well be a record. The original print head in iP4500 was QY6-0067. IIRC I read on the druckerchannel.de Canon forum that this print head had a reputation of being fragile. The fact that a replacement type, QY6-0075 was introduced makes me think it's plausible that the original print head was fragile.

    @PeterBJ, I have just opened the printer and checked to see which one is installed, it’s the 0067 model, so thankfully I got the fragile one...:lol:

    54,000 pages on a print head is amazing, congrats !

    i just checked my numbers and looks like i usually get 20,000 - 22,000 on an 830 print head.

    i do have a brand new 4500 stored away, bought it in 2008 for $99 so to get an extra set of PGI5/CLI8 carts for my 830.

    the 4500 is one the best canon printers as far as build quality.
