printer recommendations?

  yaesu 22:45 09 Jan 2009

Hi folks, I've got a 5½ year old Canon i850 which prints black fine but refuses to print any colours! This despite soaking the print head and running loads of cleaning cycles with cleaning carts. I've also tried reinstalling the driver all to no avail. It's currently has it's head in hot water as a last try. To get to the point (at last!) can anyone please recommend a replacement printer? preferably one which uses separate blk and individual colour carts like the i850 and at a sensible price.Thanks, yaesu

buy another cannon, you can get cartridges for them for penny's. I have a Lexmark but I had a cannon i450 for 4 years. I would have got another cannon but the price for the Lexmark was too good to turn down

I bought a Canon ip4300 printer and a Canon 4400F flat bed scanner. Very reasonably priced. Cartridges from Choice Stationery Supplies best prices I could find.

The ip4300 printer uses separate cartridges.

tnx folks. looks like the ip4300 will be taking the i850's place if the soaking doesn't work.
