Tips on Installation and Slow Printing

AgingEngineer, Canon
3 weeks ago
  • Conclusion: A few points on MG5420 wireless printer installation that may keep you from seeing some of the problems seen by some of those who have complained about difficulty with the wireless setup, 'no response from printer' problems, and extremely slow printing--I've seen them, too, but I've fixed them--at least in my installation. 1) Update the drivers to latest level for your computer (XP, Vista, etc) (always a good practice, anyway).

Quality Output

  • Conclusion: My old MP600, which I loved, finally bit the dust. I purchased this machine and liked its ability to print CDs. I read as much as I could about this multifunction printer prior to purchasing. I really don't need wireless at home so I use a USB connection. The text and photos are outstanding. I found it easy to set up. Found the CD tray that is attached on the bottom of the upper tray.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Sharp Tones & Colors
  • Cons: High Ink Consumption

Love it!

  • Conclusion: Best printing I've seen in forever and easy to use menus! The only thing that could possibly be improved is something in the design. Cats love to lie on printers/scanners. The buttons on this one are a little too close to the top to avoid buttons being pressed. I've had to cover with a cut out cardboard box.
  • Pros: reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, durable, Low Ink Consumption, Lightweight/Portable, Sharp Tones & Colors, fast print speed, easy to use
  • Cons: buttons a little too accessible

A lot of great features & super value for the price.

  • Summary: Good printer for the money. Sure beats the HP ink hog I had just over a year and had nothing but problems with. It's a little noisy, but makes very good copies and very good photo's. The ink seems to last longer than the piece of crap HP I had. So far it's been great. It has a lot of good features, like a photo paper tray and paper tray, so you don't have to switch trays to print photo's.So far it's been great.

So far, so good

  • Summary: I've been using this like crazy since I'm in college and there are things to print out all the time. I, also, have to turn in weekly attendance reports that I can easily scan in to my computer wirelessly from the printer and the software automatically converts it to a PDF file. This is an upgrade from my last scanner that I would have to scan on to a jump drive and then download to the computer. I would recommend it.

Prints great, but...

  • Summary: Noisy little bugger. It's always, huffing, puffing, whirring, sliding, clicking, and clacking away. That said, the print quality is excellent.

Good printer needs better instructions

PrintMan, Canon
9 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Canon printers got good reviews for Mac users, so I bought one. I got the MG 5420. It is wireless capable. However, there are a few things the instructions didn't really cover so I would like to mention them for the sake of anyone else using an Apple computer and an Airport Extreme router. I bought this printer for the print directly to printable CD or DVD option but the instructions fail to mention that this will not work unless the printer is connected via USB cable.
  • Pros: very fast printing
  • Cons: instructions do not tell the whole story

Still Happy

  • Summary: Works well like my other Canon. One negative is wireless needs to be reconnected everytime the internet goes down. I bought just before Black Friday. I could have bought locally for $49 (half the $89 I paid) on that day.
