    One is nearly brand new but they will both need a good cleaning.

    The older one probably had regular black ink fed through its PGBK line.

    They can be yours for shipping and handling from Japan.

    Here's an update...

    Well I received the two print heads yesterday from @bluecrabby, and immediately gave them a good soak in Fairy for an hour and followed that up with an hour in just warm water, changing it twice, then left them to dry thoroughly.

    Today I installed each in turn, the first gave a very good output with colour but no cigar, the black was completely dead and missing.

    The second didn’t even get out of the starting gate, it just locked up the printer with the service error 5200 and I had fun getting that head out again.

    So now I am back where I start from with my present head, with each of my cyans’ scatty and full of very small gaps that still show up even in high quality, I reckon its nearly time to crank up the Maxify because the output is slowly getting worse.

    I took the chance of keeping this old dog going but it wasn’t to be, as these two heads turned out to be totally duff, in fact, it could have rendered the logic board useless, but it was worth trying to save the printer and without seeing a nozzle check first it was always going to be a bit of a crap shoot...
