Cheap might be watching for somebody to drop one (an entire s900, s9000 or i9100)on ebay for a low bid.

https://shopnow.partsnowllc.com/welcome_portal.asphave it for $90

If you are going to replace it anyway you might try some of the extreme cleaning methods:

Printheads Only
Soak only the printhead in very hot distilled water for 60 minutes and then dry a with toilet paper and cotton swabs. Test.

Steam the printhead for 20 minutes and then rest on absorbent paper to draw the ink out. Test.

CAUTION WITH THE NEXT METHOD - keep the tray away from open flames and sparks. Place the tray outdoors.
Make a tray made out of aluminum foil and pour about 3/8 inch alcohol into the tray and soak only the printhead in 91% alcohol (about $1.50 from Sav-On) for five hours and then dry a with toilet paper and cotton swabs. Test.

Soak only the printhead in 75% water and 25% glass cleaner WARM solution for a no more than 10 minutes and then dry a with toilet paper and cotton swabs. This solution may damage some printheads. Test..

I have used a little steam generator "SCUNCI". Been using this method to unplug print heads for a long time. Removed the Canon print head and use steam machine to spray both sides until there isn't any color left in the head. I have unplugged heads that have been sitting around for a year or more. Do a Google search for "SCUNCI STEAM"

Canon printheads are only available from Canon after you talk to a service tech. They determine if you need one or not and then you get it sent to you. I have never seen another source for them so I guess that Canon keeps them in-house.

Well, I stand corrected. First time I've seen anyone listing Canon printheads for the newer "S" or "i" series printers. Thanks.

I also have a clogged i960 head. It was only the black ink, but after using compressed air, soaking the base of the head in denatured alcohol, and wiping with Windex, I now get nothing from the printer! This is probably a lost cause, so I'm up for any ideas. When you say "soak the head in water" do you mean to immerse the ENTIRE head or just the nozzle end? After soaking overnight, I'm wondering if my cartridges themsleves are now dried, though I put in a new Black to no avail. HELP!?!
