IMHO, the best answer for most customers is to buy a brand new part with warranty and installation instructions from an authorized Canon parts reseller. If the parts droid on the phone doesn't ask for both printer model and serial number, consider trying another parts droid or risk getting the wrong part. Stay away from non-authorized resellers. The price might be right but the part might not be.How are you going to do it to lower the risk?
I have several print heads in storage and I store them all dry, and when I need to use one of them, I pour generous amounts of pharmacists’ solution into the inlets and leave it to stand for ½ an hour, then shake dry and use.I have a slightly different problem.I can get a "like new" pro-100. I have immediate use for the partially used carts but I want to store the print head for backup way down the road. What is the best way to do this?
1) Didn't mikling just say this would create issues with the sponge in the cartridges due to drying out?store it with all the carts in situ till you’re ready to reuse, it will keep for years like that..
1) Didn't mikling just say this would create issues with the sponge in the cartridges due to drying out?
2) What about the confusing issue someone had with ink unexpectedly draining out of the cartridges while it was in storage presumed due to contact with the purge pads?
3) I thought the best practice was to keep the plastics in the print head conditioned and bacteriostatic/bactericidal due to the glycerin in Pharmacists Solution, similar to why Canon packages print heads sealed in juice. Not that I've done this, but it has been the forum consensus.
Can you go into more detail, please:lost two print heads by storing them, flushed, in Ziploc bags.
Tin Ho, i know you are a Hobbi something shill.I know I did something wrong. I should have flushed with distiled drink or 100% alcohol wine. Still if I were to store a print head I would not go that way. I learned a hard lesson. Who did not back in the i960 era? I now store my print heads in the printers accompanied by all their cartridges. Never had a problem until who knows when I run into another disaster.
Yes, those were good print working heads. Had I not ruined them that way they might have gone wrong by other mistakes, possibly refilled with PC ink. Who knows...
