Canon pro-1000

My Canon pro-1000 quit printing matte black and I just got off of the phone with their service department.  We ran 6 deep cleanings and no luck.  This printer is only three months old but replaces another printer that was over a year old so it is out of warrenty although the printer is only several months old.

They suggested that I replace the print head - called to find the price of a new print head and from canon it is $1,188.33.  For only a $100 more (provided that the printers are not still on sale) I can obtain a new printer and a full set of ink tanks.  It does not make much sense that a new print head costs as much as a printer (well except for $100).

Apparently all is not lost though, as third parties sell the print heads for $600 plus.  Also a new print head requires that about 1/2 of a set of tanks be used up on the setup.

All I can say is to buy the extended warranty.
