Canon Pro - 4000 Starter Ink and MFR #s
« on: June 18, 2018, 12:45:55 PM »

Does anyone know what size ink this printer comes with. Some websites show all 300mil some show all 330mil some show 9 inks at 330mil and 3 inks at 190mil.
 
Are some of the online sites swapping out ink carts for better pricing? I did call a couple of them, but they were not much help with this.

Also is there a difference between MFR#'s   some show 1127C002, 1127C002AA, 1127C002AB
Thanks for any clarification!

When the Pro-4000 started shipping, it was 160ml upfront and a rebate for 190ml from Canon.  After a year, they changed it where it's not 330ml upfront (no 300ml available).
1127C002 is the main p/n.  The AA is the 160ml shipment and AB is the 330ml shipment.

You can find the AB number on our site with the proper information.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply! Do you know what it would mean if the "whats in the box" (on a website) says 9 carts are 330mL and 3 are 190mL... maybe old stock or they haven't updated the website... or would they be taking ink out of the box and adding in lower mL carts to offer a lower  price? Just not sure what to think about this! 

Thanks again!

Sounds like they may be shipping the printer with those instead of what Canon is offering upfront.  No shipment should have both in the box unless they opened it up and changed the sizes and decided not to keep the printer themselves.  Hard to say for sure, but all of the shipments from the manufacturer are usually the same size upfront, not different.

I would recommend looking at a resellers site since we sell however the manufacturer provides the shipment to us vs non resellers who can sometimes do other things with the shipments if they decided to.  As long as they note these changes, they can do it properly.

Darren, This is a screen shot of our Prograf 4000's Ink Status immediately after initial setup and priming of the link lines. We bought the machine form IT Supplies, then known as Atlex, in April 2018. The sprinter shipped with 330cc tanks all around at the time of purchase.

Thanks John and ITSupplies, The website is an authorized reseller (one of the bigger ones) so I'm not sure what maybe going on!

Update: Printer came in yesterday (6/27) haven’t fully set it up yet, but all the carts are labeled “PFI-1300 setup” so it looks like they are all the 330mL.
