Wow, my printer has been offline for a year and a half.
Due to life changes, etc...
I was thinking, it has got to be screwed up by now...
Anywho, I bought some plain paper, ran a cleaning cycle, printed a nozzle check, and patterns, works okay!
Kinda wished I didn't run the cleaning cycle first, and went straight to the nozzle check.
Shrug, it's working great so far.
Now to buy new ink, and use all these good papers I have once again.
I'm pretty happy with it.

I bought a PIXMA Pro 9500 MK II and didn't take it out of the box for about 18 months. I was a bit concerned about how it would work, but since the cradle and ink tanks were still in their wrappers things were fine.

Regarding the new ink: I spoke with a Canon tech services rep and was asking him about the expiration date stamped on the bag for the ink for my IPF series printer. He told me they have printers there in the lab with ink tanks that have been in the printer for years. Apparently everything is fine.

I found it a bit hard to believe but he swore up hill and down it was true.

Yup.This is one of the advantages of dye-based printers. I have had Canon dye based printers for years, and I have often left them idle for months, sometimes in rooms that are very hot or very cold. I've never even had to run a cleaning cycle. I just turn them on, and they print. One of them is the same printer you have, a 9000II.
