    Maxify vs MegaTank series

    Thanks. Tank printers in Brazil sell a lot (HP, Epson, Canon etc.). This is why, as I understand, heads for Megatank series are easy to find. Not only Canon sells them, but stationary shops etc. Maxify heads, on the other hand, is only sold by Canon. I will probably buy a Maxify, as its seems to...

    Maxify vs MegaTank series

    What about the head availability? I can buy heads for the megatank series very easily whereas it seems to be a headache to buy for the maxify (at least in my location). If I have some sort of trouble I can buy a head promptly.

    Maxify vs MegaTank series

    Hi All, I have started to investigate a new printer. The options that I am focusing on are tank series from Epson and Canon, as well as Maxify. Epson and HP dominate local market (Brazil) and, thus, consumables, parts, assistance etc. are far more available than Canon. Epson has nice tank...

    How to fix fuzzy text?

    For now I will keep it as it is. My wife is taking her second university graduation. She uses the MX922 on a daily basis. I bring used paper from my work and she prints on their back the texts that she needs to read (she hasn´t got used to read them on the lcd. She prefers paper for reading)...

    How to fix fuzzy text?

    Thanks to all. I tried to clean the timing strip (followed the instructions provided above) but it did not work. I could not see any change on the prints after cleaning the timing strip. The solution is to buy a new printhead, as already mentioned. Unfortunatelly, this solution is too expensive...

    How to fix fuzzy text?

    Hi All, Some parts of the text printed with MX922 are not clear but blurry (see in the photo the excerpts that seem to be printed in bold, but in fact the were not). Nozzle check prints are fine (see photo). I have already aligned the printhead but it did not improve or impact the problem. How...

    Do I need to substitute my printhead?

    Hi All, I have tried during the weekend to fix the printhead. Unfortunately, the suggestions made in this very nice forum did not work. Assuming that I would not be able to fix it, I gave a last shot. I went ahead and cleansed it with alcohol 70 and, after, with warm water. These ideas did not...

    Do I need to substitute my printhead?

    Thank you for the time that you spent helping me. Very comprehensive response of yours. I did the deep clean cycle followed by two "quick" ones previously suggested. No progress. The nozzle print check does not show any improvement. It is a perfect copy of the one that I uploaded here. My...

    Do I need to substitute my printhead?

    Dear All, I started to get imperfect prints while printing documents with PGBK. I cleaned the print head through the maintenance panel of the printer. I also took the head out of the printer and cleansed it. Is it in the end of its life? Should I try to clean it in different ways? My printer is...

    Maxify vs Ecotank

    Thank you. I see differences between both photos, although the Maxify´s photos is also nice. The dye photo colors are more intense. However, I have not trained eyes to analyze the impact of the lower resolution. I also do not know the resolution of the dye photo. Are photos from pigment...
