New printer not working

xuhaiwei, Pricerunner
31 October 2012
  • Summary: The printer is useless.
  • Pros: Since the printer did not work from the beginning I cannot judge this.
  • Cons: The provided manual did not address the errors that occurred during the installation. During installation the auto adjustment of the print head came up with an error message. The manual suggested to continue with the next installation step, however the menu was looping around the same problem sev...

Great Service

Nev, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: This is my second Canon Pixma MG 5250. My first one stopped printing after it had done about five. I sent it back for a refund. I ordered another one from another trader and this one managed to print one disk before that too stopped working.

Good while it lasted

Zippy, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I had mine for two years, two months and then the print-head/logic-board failed. Now it's useless. The repair costs are far more than a replacement printer. You can Google B200 error to see how many other people have had this problem with Canon printers.

continuous print head error

D. G. Moodie, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had this printer for a week. Happy with print quality and may replace with something similar but at power up it constantly complains that it has the wrong print head installed. Takes 5-10 tries of removing cartridges and print head, reinstalling them to get it recognised properly.

seconded- idiotic design- can't print in black unless it has colour ink cartridges, and can't print in true grayscale

anoccasionalreviewer, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: This printer is great except: When you are printing b+w documents it nonetheless drains the colour ink and this cannot be switched off by choosing grayscale. When your colour cartridges run out it will not let you print in B+W with the black cartridge that you have paid for (or even scan).

Canon should be ashamed!

THE GROKE, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: This printer was a bit of a diva from the off - but I have endured its endless shuffling and tweaking as it has provided some relatively good printing / scanning however I should have guessed our relationship would end like this.

ERROR 6c10

G. Dunn, Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: I do not recommend you buy this printer, I have had continuous problems with the above error code which has only got worse over time. I've tried the recommended fix, but even that no longer works, so it's going to the tip and I shall be ordering a new printer, but not a Canon!

Built to self destruct: Canon will not repair or replace printer when it's out of warranty

Mr. Timothy A. Edwards, Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had this printer for over a year now, and it's been an acceptable workhorse. I have seen problems: it absolutely guzzles ink, and the scanner isn't particularly high quality. However, the print heads on the printers are absolute garbage.

Great whilst it works. Buy it then bin it...to save time!

The Syrys one, Amazon
22 December 2010
  • Summary: Great whilst it works. When it falls over, which in my case was very soon in terms of use, you have to bin it. I bought it for its CD printing capabilities, which it did well. When it stops working it comes up with the insane error message "The type of print head is incorrect.
