For the past several months I've been unable to find anyone in the US that has an Mc-20 maintenance cartridge in stock. Worse yet, no one, including Canon can provide an estimate of when they will have stock. Frankly, I'm a bit incredulous that Canon would allow this to happen. Has this happened with other Canon pro level printers?
Does anyone have any information about mc-20 availability?

I just checked the shop.usa.canon.com site and I see that the MC-20 Maintenance Cartridge is currently in stock. It can be found at the link below:

Arthur, thank you form your reply. While the availability solves a concern, I'm more concerned why Canon was silent for so long offering no information as to the status of mc-20 availability. It's a serious flaw in the culture of a company of Canon's stature. Basically you left your customers to operate their print businesses without help or care. Not good; and it creates concerns about the quality of post-sale support.

Unfortunately, when I put the products in my cart and try to check out, they show out of stock. This is beyond frustrating as I've not been able to print for six weeks. I guess I should've gone with the Epson.....

I do have an epson which is 3 years old and still going - here I thought getting a canon was an upgrade

Seriously just after I spent more than $600.00 with Canon for a set of ink and now I have a printer just sitting there

The MC-20 remains out of stock everywhere. I've been looking for stock for several months now and, in the meantime, my PRO-1000 has been doing nothing but taking up space.

I have been unable to find MC-20 cartridges too. It is amazing that engineers would not program a bypass option for the MC-20 cartridge. I'm sure that no one desires ink to overflow, but anyone using a $1200 printer would realize the potential, but better than not being able to print. A flexible tube could be run from the exit port to a suitable container to contain the ink rather than have the printer sitting with a maintenance cartridge full message. Canon should realize that people use the printers in business and to be simply locked out is not acceptable. I am afraid that Canon does not wish to announce that it will be another 6 months before the MC20 cartridges are available. The estimates are that nothing will be leaving Asia for a very long period of time, so the Canon printers will be inactive for a long time.

I live in Nebraska, but found that Glazer camera in Seattle showed some online. I called them and they had four in stock so I ordered and received two of them a few weeks ago. After 3 months of no printing! I was about to bite the bullet and get an epson.

They were briefly in-stock on Amazon for a modest amount of price gouging ($20/ea) instead of the $50+/ea that they had been. I have two arriving tomorrow but they seem to be completely out of stock now.
