  • Any idea if the problem is in Adobe or Canon's side.   Canon said that they were unaware of the problem and Adobe said the problem is not theirs. The canon utility allows avoiding the 25mm edge ...
  • I have a pro-1000 canon printer and am having a problem printing with the print studio under the following circumstance If I attempt to print an image that I cropped in photoshop and print using ...
  • Knock on wood. I said yesterday that in a year and a half that I never had to run a head cleaning operation (not counting when the black matte channel quit working) and today my yellow starting ...
  • I received my first pro-1000 in march 2016 and in June of 2017 Canon sent me a new printer because the first one was filling up  the waste ink tanks in just over a month.   I print daily, perhaps ...
  • I beg to differ. I replaced the head in my pro-1000 a couple of months ago and it did not need an extra waste tank and it did not consume any substantial amount of ink .  The only additional ink ...

    Update I was led to believe that a new head would consume enough ink to fill about 1/2 of a waste tank but after changing the head found that this is not the case.  After replacing the head and ...
  • What I ment to say is that if the CO is used for cleaning between prints, the amount used should be constant and it is not.  Also, altlhough I have printed only about three glossy prints and the ...
  • I was of the opinion that this was not included in the costs for a print.  I also find that if it is for cleaning, the amount varies from print to print.
  • I am unhappy with this amount of ink waste but for me, to put things into perspective, represents half of the sales price of one print and is a cost that I am willing to put up with to get the ...
  • At present it appears to be dumping about 80-100 ml of ink per month.  About 1/2 of before.  These are not exact measurements but based on how long between waste tank replacements.  On the current ...
  • The saga of the Pro 1000 waste ink tank. I shall recap the entire saga here: I purchased a Pro-1000 in March of 2016.  I found that it solved all of my past printing issues, but at a price.  I ...

    Sorry Joe, got a bit confused.  I thought that I had purchased it from a major camera store but had bought it direct from Canon.  The store could not find my purchase records as I did not buy it ...

    Was interesting in that in the image that is almost all black when printed on matte showed no black at all printing but the image printed in glossy apparently wants both ink sets

    i have removed and added ink to the ink cartridges without any problem multiple times. I only print Matte.  Not sure what I will do.
  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    One more item, the store where I buy most of my equipment said that the price for a new print head is absurd and that they will see if they can get the Canon representative to take some action. In ...
  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    When I had to empty a Pro-1000 for shipping, I emptied all of the tanks with a hypodermic (no sharp point) and saved the ink in bottles.  After I received and initialized  the new printer, I again ...

    Joe, yes I can.  It is easy to remove the ink from a matte tank and place it into an empty photo black one.  Have removed ink and transferred it before and it is easy.
  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    I lied, I purchased this printer straight from Canon.  I do purchase most of my equipment from them and when they could not find my purchase record, I remember that I did buy this one from Canon. ...
  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    Purchased from the local pro photography store.  I try not to use  the internet as the store where we get advise and handle the product should get the sale. The closest Canon repair facility is in ...
  • Created discussion thread 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 ...
