Regarding the following, what have you chosen in liew of the Pro9000? I just go one (3 years late, I know lol) and would have been very happy had I not read about the not-quite-perfect black & white prints it puts out. Now I'm asking more of it than it has promised to deliver - a typical case of being happy with what you have until you see that someone else has something better : )

Sorry to revive this thread, but I also have been having severe reliability issues with the Pro9000.

I have used 3 Pro 9000 (one Mark II and 2 Mark I)

and they all failed similarly. Always the tray getting stuck in the "locked" position (right above the cleaning foam pads) and Its always a small metal mechanism that gets stuck there.

Same CANON print error in the utilities (and similar blinking errors, my latest is 10 blinking cycles).

In all cases, the printer looks dead (does nothing other than blink)

Unsure if Its bad luck or what.. but 3 failing almost in the same way? :/

My latest MARK II had the issue, and this thing was broken, holding the printhead cart down.

Unfortunately, the printer is not doing anything else but repeat the 10 blink cycles.
