Does the age of the ink in a cartridge have an effect on a print?

Greetings,

Depending on conditions, it might.  

 

What is more likely however is a partially clogged print head.

What problem are you having, or is this just a general question?

 

If a general question, Canon has stated that there is no expiration date for the Pro-100 inks.

 

But, as Rick said, not printing for a long time could result in ink drying out in the printhead and resulting in clogging.

This was just a gneral question.  I have not used my Pro 100 in a while and just wanted to be sure ink was still good.  I do not see any issues with prints and have not had any issues with clogging, but if I do, what would I see on my prints that woudl indicate clogging?

Thank you

John

Depending on the level of clogging you could see banding up to a complete loss of a color(s).

 

Just run a nozzle check and see how it looks.

 

Dye ink printers like the Pro-100 are more resistant to plugging than pigment ink printers.

Well I have'nt seen anything like what you are describing, so, so far so good!

Thank you again
