Canon Printerheads have expiry dates?

I just had to junk my Canon ip1000 because it would not print. The message was "faulty printer head" . Nothing to do with the cartridge or other parts...just the printhead. I contacted Canon and got an email asking me to take the printhead for a check and if faulty to buy a new one. Too much trouble for a 6 year old printer that cost about $100 when I bought it. I wish that Canon would make products that can last as long as my HP 930C workhorse that has been giving me sterling service for nearly 10 years.
