Drying heads problem on Canon iP4000?

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers,rec.photo.digital (More info?)

Hello all,

Several years ago I have bought Epson Photo 790 and I would be quite
happy with it if not for persisting problem of drying head. If I have
not printed for, say, couple of weeks -- the printing head would dry
out and it required a lot of time (and of expensive ink) to clean it
up. So the last time that happened I said "ehough" and stopped using
the printer. But When I bought the printer I have been forewarned: this
is (was?) a known problem of Epson printers.

Now I'm looking at new Canon Photo printers (iP4000 in particular) and
considering getting one. Has anybody encountered the similar problem
with Canon _new_ line of printers? If yes -- how bad it is? Is any one
of them is better or worse than others? Please, share your
experience/knowledge.

TIA

    If you use OEM inks then you should not have a problem. If you use
    after market inks than caveat emptor.

    I had a Lexmark that would dry out if I didn't use it for a week. I could
    never get things to print right with it (I have a Lexmark laser that I
    really like, but the inkjet I had just didn't cut it.)

    I now have a Canon that has never dried out (I just returned from 3 months
    in Florida and started printing without any problems. Two things, on both
    pritners I used the manufacture's inks and never let the ink run completely
    dry (I change it when told to by the printer.)

    Inkjet printers have the potential to get clogged heads with their own brand
    inks as well as quality aftermarket inks. The two major issues are 1) the
    quality of the aftermarket inks and cartridges and 2) the frequency with
    which you print. In addition, there is always some buildup of dried ink on
    the underside of printheads that can sometimes cause clogs with months or
    years of normal, regular use. It would be a good idea to become more
    educated regarding these printers, inks and cartridges. Measekite is right
    that there are some poor quality inks out there, but he is critical of the
    vendors, small businesses that repackage other brand inks and sell them with
    their own labels on the internet, and he writes about them in a disparaging
    manner. Moreover, he has never used these products and yet makes
    authoritative statements based on what he has selectively gleaned from
    reading posts on newsgroups. Although few of the vendors advertise which
    inks they are selling, there are a few who do let you know. I have
    personally used MIS inks to refill Canon carts and have been very happy with
    the product (which I have been told is Image Specialist ink). Look through
    this newsgroup for posts by Ron Cohen and Taliesyn for info about their
    personal excellent experiences with third party inks. Following are a few
    sites that have excellent information by people who don't just give you
    their opinionated response - they have used these products successfully, and
    they also report when they have had problems. Neil Slade's info on Canon
    printers, papers, and inks is at
    http://www.neilslade.com/papers/inkjetstuff.html. Then follow the link he
    gives near the top of that site to http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/ for
    the forum on ink jet stuff. Lots of information there as well. It's a good
    idea to know how to trouble shoot printer problems that can occur with any
    ink and that information is on those sites. Sensient Formulabs inks are
    available bulk and also in prefilled cartridges, and this ink has quite a
    good reputation with people who have used it and reported on this and other
    forums. Formulabs ink is in cartridges sold by Alotofthings (their Arrow
    carts, not Rainbow), Weink (carts that have the CRU id in their product
    listings), and, I have been told, Wiredbeans carts which are available on
    ebay. You can contact each of them to verify that their cartridges are
    filled with Formulabs inks before purchasing. Do sign in to the Nifty-stuff
    forum and ask any questions of them that you wish. They are very helpful.
    There are also some extremely helpful participants on this newsgroup as
    well, but you can also experience the invective and snide remarks of a few
    people on this NG that might tend to discourage you from pursuing this
    issue.

    Another smart one. With OEM inks there is less to worry about. They
    were designed by the manufacturer of the Printer to work best with their
    print head and they know the engineering of this print head then a 3rd
    party hawker. At least you can go to 10 stores and an equal number of
    websites and say I want Canon ink and you will get the same exact thing
    where every you buy. And Canon puts its name on the product also. :-)

    my Canon i850 cartridges ran out after three months, only printing
    about 40 pages. I think they were drying out. I left my printer on all
    the time. Did that cause them to dry out faster or is 3 months the
    normal life after installing?

    Well my gosh...! I'm so glad I don't purchase oem inks and support
    terrorist. You know I’m a patriot. Obviously the counterfeiters know
    where the money is to be made and it's not by counterfeiting
    off-brand/private label, high quality inks that I use.

    That was an interesting article. This is similar to bogus software and
    counterfeit movies. I feel that when you deal with a large company like
    Costco who usually buys direct there is less chance of this happening.
    The ones I got at Costco have a hollagram on the box.

    No, the Canon's don't have the drying head problem. They have the head
    burn out problem instead.

    Hey Frank,

    Pick your choice :-)

    My canon S900 head drivers on one color goes out after a few seconds of
    printing, had it replaced the first time under warranty
    Hope the new heads are better in the I9900 .
    Also if Canon and the others made their ink price much cheaper the reason
    for counterfeiting would go away.

    >>the printing head would dry out and it required a lot of time (and of

    I never found the cleaning cycle (even deep cleaning) much use and, as you
    say, it is expensive in ink. A technique I learned about on the internet
    was to use canned compressed air spray instead. It worked for me (do it
    outside!) but I won't take any responsibility if it damages your print head.
    I did it on a printer which was on the way out anyway.

    The best policy is to have a small image, which doesn't need a lot of ink -
    just a bit of each colour and at the end of each week if you've not printed
    anything else then print it (on plain paper) to keep the ink moving.

    With regard to Canon print heads, mine eventually stopped working on my i950
    after 18 months. The print head is a replaceable item - in theory. In
    practice it's nearly as expensive as a new printer so it's uneconomical to
    replace it. Better to get the latest printer.

    As a result I recently binned my i950 and replaced it with a ip5000 (note
    that the print head experience didn't put me off Canon). I shopped around
    for a 2 year guarantee so if the print head blows again in the same
    timescale I can get a new one.

    NO. My equipment is on a network. They are always on and available.
    After 6 plus months I replaced my cym color carts. The others are still
    going.

    Did you always use OEM ink in you i950?

    >>Did you always use OEM ink in you i950?

    No. Here in the UK, the price differential is four to one. A full cart of
    six Canon cartridges for my i950 was around 42 UK pounds whilst I could get
    a full set of compatibles for about a tenner.

    At that rate, I reckoned I would save enough to replace the print head in
    just three refills.

    I don't honestly believe it was the compatible inks which did for my print
    head, though. I can understand how they may be more prone to blocking and
    clogging but the way it eventually died was with the printer flashing out
    "bad print head" in its orange light code.

    ROFLMAO - That's just the sort of reply I was expecting of you measekite.
    You can't think of a valid and adult argument so have to resort to name
    calling.

    Keep it up - your just proving to all the other readers of these newsgroups
    what a sad & pathetic individual you really are. If anyone reading your
    postings believes a single word you have to say about 3rd party inks, Canon
    vs Epson printers etc., then they must be even more stupid than yourself
    measekite; which, going by your recent ranting, is very hard to believe.
