    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?

    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?

    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

    Dear All, Starting to look into new printers, I have the option for the Maxify´s (MB5XXX or MB2XXX) or the ecotank (G7010 or GM4010). All of them print 2 sides and have ADFs, although only the MB5xxx have double sided ADFs. Maxify are pigment ink printers whereas the ecotanks are not. I can...

    B200 error

    Dear All, I own a MX922. It is about 3-4 years old. I refill it with precision colors. It has printed about 6500 pages. B200 started to show up from time to time. I turn it off. Wait about 10-30 minutes and turn it back on. It continues to print. I already have a spare head (remanufactured, as...

    Gloss Optmizer

    Dear All Could someone give detailed instructions about how to use print a layer of GO? I understand that it is necessary to substitute the black cartridge for a gloss one and, next, print a layer of Go. However, isn't true that the channel of the black cartridge is full of ink at the time...

    Help on my MX721 problem

    Hello, After a paper jam my MX721 started to present a very odd printing behavior. It is all about the cyan. It is like an ink starvation but the cartridge is full (and, as I mentioned, this problem started immediately after a paper jam that happened below the printing head). I cleaned the...

    Pigment printer

    Hi All, After a lot of suffering with fading after printing photos with non-oem dye ink in Canons printers (Pixma line) I am willing to buy a pigment printer. Printing photos is a hobby. Therefore, some weeks I do not print much and others I do. I try, however, to print something once per week...

    Fading remedy

    Dear All, Looking through the forum I could not find a precise response to my question. I have 2 printers with 250/251 cartridges. I refill them with Inktec, which is considered to be a well known brand for refilling purposes. Photos are nice when newly printed but they fade fast.. I...

    Refilling question

    Dear All, I am using refilling carts in my MX721. Some weeks ago the cyan ink was low and I took the opportunity to refill all carts. Now I see that the ink level of all carts, except for the cyan show wrong levels. This is fine, as it was expected to happen. The question is how I control the...

    Photos too dark

    Dear All, Once again I rely on your help. I know that the question below has been asked many times, but I cannot figure out how to solve it. I own a MX721 printer. Recently, I purchased ColorMunki Photo (CMP). I profiled the monitor in advance mode of CMP. The spectrometer measure the light...

    ICC color management vendor

    Hi All, I am in need for someone that could create a profile for my printers (MX 721 and MP610). I have refillable carts and the colors are far from good. Acquisition of a spectrometer is way expensive for my needs. Does anyone know a good and affordable color profile vendor that I could use...

    MP610 Contamination in Y cart

    Hi All, Until recently I had an Artisan 730, which I liked but it started to clog and one day I damaged the printhead during the cleaning process. After that I looked for alternatives and in light of a good discount and because of the general sense that Canons have less clogging problems I...

    MX (5 inks) vs MG (6 inks) in photo quality (9.600 dpi machines)

    Hi All, Could someone explain in detail the difference in quality between the printers that have 5 and 6 inks (e.g., MX 922 vs MG 7720)? Both printers with 9.600 dpi. Is it only about B/W prints because of the gray cartridge? If so, how much difference is expected between the photos printed by...

    Refill 250/251 cartridges with 225/226 ink. Is it possible?

    Dear All, I have recently purchased a Canon MX722 and I will use refillable cartridges. I incorrectly purchased 225/226 inks from INKTEC and now I realize that this printer uses 250/251 inks. Can I use 225/226 ink to refill the cartridges and use it in the printer? What harm can I cause to the...
