Default Clogged nozzles

If I purchase a used printer (r1800) and install a CIS will that remedy the clogged nozzle trouble it is having?

While I'm at it, what's the best wide format (13x) printer to purchase and add a CIS to? I'm not so sure Epson is the way to go.

Epson and Ricoh are the only choices for small format sublimation. Adding CIS to a clogged print head will no remedy the problem...possibly add to it.

I ended up getting the Canon for $150, I'm sure it will pay for itself in no time. Does anyone have experience with this printer?

You may have issues - dye sublimation printers, wide or small format, use an Epson piezo print head due to the thickness of the ink. Not sure how the Ricohs operate.

Canon print heads are not compatible with dye sublimation inks. Dye sublimation inks require piezo print heads (Epson, Roland, Mimaki, etc.).

Crap, so I can't print any mug or t shirt transfers with the canon pixma pro 9000 then? That's unfortunate. Guess I'll have a printer for sale.
