Nice Printing But Terrible Paper Handling

Manuel A. Calcagno, Amazon
12 May 2007
  • Summary: After only a few weeks of use, paper started jamming, in this printer. This problem only got worse with time. I am currently on my second unit (Canon sends you a used/refurbished unit as a replacement) and still having the same problem. Paper randomly jams in the transport and the printer has to be turned upside down and opened, in the back, to try and get the torn paper out. Sometimes it just tears the edges of the paper, like Jaws.

Driver and software incompatibilities?

A frustrated user, Amazon
13 August 2006
  • Summary: Please Google "Print Queue problem iP5200." Exactly the same problem I experienced is described by some other unfortunate people. The problem is that after printing a job, it stays in Print Queue for several minutes, and the second job cannot be started immediately. Those who reported the problem on internet did not get any solution. Of course, they and I contacted Canon. Those who posted the problem on internet and I used the latest printer driver.

outstanding

H. C. High, Amazon

  • Summary: This printer is the same as the 5200 but does not have an LCD viewing screen. I do not print directly from camera to printer so I did not need the screen. My last printer was an Epson from about 2002 and did a good job, but it used cartridges at a high rate when printing photos. I bought the 5200 partly because of price ($150) but the quality of the prints is outstanding.

Enttäuschende Investition

Marcel Ackermann "DreamFlasher", Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: Habe den Drucker vor einem Jahr gekauft und konnte in der Zeit mir ein klares Bild verschaffen. Hier meine Meinung: Pro: + damals vergleichsweise günstig + randlos Druck (wenn auch Standard) + CD/DVD bedrucken Contra: - teure Patronen - refill/Billigpatronen nicht (oder nicht benutzbar) wg.
