Excellent, albeit rather pricy necessity rather than dumping an otherwise pefectly satisfactory Canon Pixma iP4300 favourite printer in preference to all the gloomy bother of procurement/adption and settng up new printer cum copier and scanner !
Particularly already possessing an ideal Canon compact F220 copier and two flat bed scanners ! Plus of course having previously been through this routine on two earlier occasions and the lengthy and messy and fairly sucessful routine (for a while anyway) of cleaning attempts ! So this time I was up and running again having received the new Print Head within three days plus only 25 minutes to remove and refit all cartridges !
No mess, no bother and all associated equipment status quo ! The only hardest part being to carefully remove the new printhead from its really positive and safe encasement within its sturdy silver foil wrapping. AND of course, prominsing myself to reglarly use my two Canon iP 4300 printers more equally in future to ensure neither dry out - which appears to have rated the pricy penalty of premature replacement !
