PIXMA iX6850 persistent print head failures


hi, I'm adding to this because, whilst my problem is not exactly the same I'm hitting a brick wall with answers and I'm curious as to if there may be a link of some sort. 

I've used pixma iX6850's for years, printed 10000s of sheets in photo quality on adhesive paper using non canon inks, as far as I am concerned these printers are workhorses. But, since about 4/5 months ago i have been having issues with failing printheads on multiple machines, some straight out of the box, less than 200 sheets and only having used Canon ink. 

I'm at a loss basically.
