Conclusion: As many seem to have mentioned. We bought this printer in the last few years, have used it very lightly and out of nowhere it will not print black any more. I replaced every cartridge and ran all the various cleaning and diagnostics several times with no luck. I've wasted time and money -- the cost of replacing all the inks in a futile attempt to get the printer to work is almost as much as buying a cheap replacement printer.
Conclusion: I am extremely disappointed with this printer. It is a little over a year old and it has completely stopped working. I printed something and decided to print another copy and the printer was dead. I tried several things to revive it to no avail. I will now purchase another printer but it won't be a Cannon. This ones response time was also poor from time to time.
Conclusion: I was very happy with my previous canon printer which lasted over 10 years. This one however is to be avoided. This is only about one year old and suddenly the magenta will not work despite cleaning, deep cleaning, and cartridge replacements. I'm so disappointed. Spend the money on something that will last instead of "saving" money on this thing that will end up in a landfill within two years.
Conclusion: Same review as everyone else. I went to print one day and it would not print anymore. Just spits out blank pages. I tried to do all the ink tests and even bought new ink. Still won't work. Not even that old! Lovely!!
Conclusion: I bought a Prixma MG5320. I was still using the first ink cartridges that I replaced for original ones and they were still in the half when out of the blue the printer gave the B200 error. I bought another set of cartridges because it is one of the recommendations to fix it, among a ton of other useless recommendations I realized that there are a ton of other canon customers that had been felt into the same trap. I'll need to buy another printer! Won't be another canon!
Conclusion: This printer MG5300 has been nothing but problems. Within about a 6 month timeframe the wifi feature only worked 1/2 of the time. we've had to unplug the printer replug, bring the computer to the printer etc. to make it work. Today it won't print even with the computer plugged into the printer. I will never buy a Canon printer again!
Cons: Slow Print Speed, unreliable, High Ink Consumption
Conclusion: This was my 3rd printer I purchased...all 3 broke within 2 years of when they were purchased...my first 2 stopped printing via Wifi within 12-16 months...my recent one failed to turn on after 13 months not to mention 2 months prior it also stopped printing via Wifi...
Conclusion: Stopped printing black after 3 months. Will print all other colors. Just no black, ink cartridges are full. Have spent extra $$$ on a new print head and new ink cartridges and still no black. Have cleaned and deep cleaned over and over and still no black. Complete waste of $100 - will NEVER buy another Canon product.
Cons: High Ink Consumption, unreliable, no black ink
Conclusion: I purchased the MG5320 to replace another printer I'd had for a long, long time. For about a year, I loved this printer, then suddenly,as many others have complained, prints and copies just came out blank. After following all of the recommended "fixes" and replacing all ink cartridges, still blank pages! This just happened suddenly - printed fine one day and nothing two days later. First and last Cannon.
