  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    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 ...
  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    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
  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    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 ...
  • Replied in Canon pro-1000
    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 ...
  • Have a few hung but mostly sell at galleries and art fairs.  Not making a lot but at least the avocation is paying for itself.
  • Now only a few days away from the first month with the replaced Canon pro-1000. It appears much better than the previous printer in dumping ink to the waste tank.  The waste ink tank, by the bar ...
  • Firmware is 2.020
  • I do not know what FW stands for. I received the standard warranty cards with the replacemet unit. The serial no is aevw00063   -  do not have the code to determine the mfg date. Thus far it ...
  • Right at two weeks with the replacement Pro 1000. Thus far, the usage of the waste tank shows the smallest amount possible to show. On the previous printer, at this time the tank was about 40% ...
  • My replacement pro1000 has now been operational for a week and thus far, no usage shows up thus far for amount of waste ink tank used.  Previous printer showed a fair amount as of this time. I put ...
  • Be glad that you did not follow the procedure - it empties the ink tanks and the lines then requires about 1/2 of a full set of new tanks to prime again. Canon states that there is no need to go ...
  • Interesting.  When I was on the phone with a canon tech last week and Monday they said that they had checked with development and stated that they did not have any data on what ink was wasted due ...
  • Thanks for the infor.  I had heard that it was going to be avaiable.  I tried to access the data with no success.  Going there now.
  • Too late at night.  4,5 waste tanks at 4 tanks each is  18 tanks of ink worth about $1260.  Did my calculations and did them twice and did them twice wrong. Sorry for the error.
  • I wish that I maintained better records than I do on what I print.  I know that all of the data is stored in the drive in the printer but it is beyond my abilities to dig it all out unless can can ...
