Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
You can send an email inquiry at the above link. I could not find any reference to a purge unit, unfortunately.
And, internal parts are replaceable, but you must call 1-800-OK-CANON to go further.

The problem seems to be the purge unit but not sure until and unless it is opened. For your assistance, you can download the manual from the below mentioned link
As far as purchasing a purge unit I would recommend to get it from a retailer RadioShack, Wallmart or Best Buy. Online shopping visit eBay or Amazon.

Welcome to FixYa
The purge unit is located all the way to the right where the printhead moves back and forth. You may be able to fix the error by first moving the printhead all the way to the left, then you can look in the right side with a flashlight and see what's clogging it up. Then, you can use q-tips to clean out whatever is blocking the purge unit.

I don't agree with your friend, I don't think its the purge unit that is causing the problem. The problem is from the ink absorber.
During printing, ink does not get absorbed into ink pads fast enough causing a build up of ink on the platen roller and the exit rollers.
Canon techs are instructed to replace the ink absorbers with a modified kit that includes a silicon tube, plastic joint, and Mylar sheet. The shape of the waste ink pad has been changed to prevent the ink build up.
If you have a mind to do it yourself and your not under warranty you can purchase the blotter kits at http://beckscrs.com/partlist.php or any printer accessories shop/store within your vicinity.
