My 3 yr old ip4500 printhead just died. (won't print from the pgi-5 pigment cart) Flushed out with water but still no dice. I suspect the hobbicolor ink. Average printer use. Printhead replacement cost $65.00 on ebay.
Can anyone recommend a replacement printer for around $100.00
I can get an ip4820 from canon for $75.00 shipped. I've always used canons, love 'em, CD/DVD's always look beautiful. However, I have always had printhead failures. (ip4000, ip4500). And the ink carts keep getting smaller.
Any suggestions? (besides using oem ink ; )
How about a different ink vendor?
