Canon MG SERIES.
Hello,i have owned 2 of the MG series, and i am annoyed at myself for not learning lessons from the first. The last MG2560 has been plagued with problems. You cant print once the black cartridge runs out, then when you replace that it will only print in Colour.You cannot manually overide settings. If i print off emails the left side is "cropped", not allowing the full page.I had a return sticker emailed to me and no mater what i tried the barcode will not read.Waste of money. Also often it will not delete a previous print Que, it tries to reprint prior documents although you delete them.I will step up and spend more on another brand.Honestly printers were better 15 years ago.Stephen Y.
Canon Pixma MG 2540S Printer. Don't buy!!!
Absolutely unsatisfactory printer. I have bought 2 over the period of 1 year and both have stopped functioning within 6 months. I have 2 friends who had the exact experience as myself.
There is some issue with feeding the paper into the printer. It makes this clicking sound and you scan see the "flaps" moving back and forward very rapidly, so not feeding in the paper through.
The message you receive is there no paper, not true!
Under no circumstances buy this printer!!
Very dissatisfied customer.
Purchased in January 2020 at Lulu for A$40.00.
Got this on sale and am very happy with it
Have had this for a while now and have not had any major issues with it (like many printers I've had in the past!) If you have an issues just press the Stop button for about 10 seconds and it resets it.
MG 2560 is worst printer I have ever bought.
I bought this printer from my local Betta store when I urgently needed to print some documents because my previous printer had died. Not having a cable was no problem as I already owned one. However right from the first printing it had trouble with the paper feed but as I really needed a printer I coaxed it to work. And from that time on there has been an ongoing problem with the paper feed. Now the printer has gone one better and frozen in the middle of photocopying and refuses to work at all, nor be repaired using the onscreen repair manual. As for print quality, I didn't really get many copies out of it before it completely died. So it will be a new printer for me as this one is going in the bin!
Just bought this Canon MG2560
Have only just setup this MG2560 and it works a treat. Was given good instructions from the seller including the fact that it did not come with a USB cable but had one on hand. I noticed all the negative reviews and most were to the effect that it did not come with a USB cable - cant they read or don't they look at what they are buying. To get a printer for $50 is amazing when you consider it had to be designed,manufactured,sent on a container ship from wherever,sent to the wholesaler,retailer and everybody had to have a profit - all for 50 bucks - a round of beers cost more than that. Some people don,t know when theyre well off.
Great printer Canon keep the good work up.
Purchased in June 2020 for A$50.00.
Idiots at Canon
Bought the printer - just cheap and easy to do infrequent work
Got out of the box and installed only to find it needs a USB A to B cable. Which isn’t supplied
And I don’t have one
Absolutely stupid. Will never buy canon again
why the hell would you sell a product without the required cable and presume people already should have it. your customer care is terrible, boycott cannon. never buying from again and telling all my friends to avoid this company.
Purchased in April 2020.
Never ever buy this printer
I have bought several of these printers over the last few years, I bought them whilst they were cheap and no other reason. When they work they work well, however after a few months maybe 6 or 12, they start showing ERROR codes, the last one I remember was 5100. It matters not tho because it would appear that the software is just not compatible with Windows 10.
It's great !
Great printer was easy to install.
Colour is good.Very happy with it so far .. it did print a couple of blank pages but not a big issue for me.
It's noisy but doesn't bother me.
Perfect for my needs.
good for the price
Purchased a floor model that had no cable, no CD, no ink cartridges and no box that they come in. Bought cartridges and connected to my computer with no real problems. Had the connecting cable all he rest was on line. Works better then I expected both printer and scanner, only miss the wifi.
I needed to purchase some urgent docs, so I race out grab a new printer and go home to connect and print.
WRONG - It's cant wirelessly connect and there's no cable supplied...............
I can't believe that any company could supply and item such as a printer that is inoperable.
VERY DISAPPOINTED........the stores are now closed and i have an early flight meaning those urgent docs wont be printed.
Unit was supplied with defective black ink catridge.
Purchased from Big-W Arndale SA. Easy to set up and connect but you need your own USB cable as none is supplied. Unable to test print quality as the driver showed the black ink tank supplied with the unit to be empty. Looked like it had just dried out. Replacement ink at $52 would cost more than the printer itself at $36. Will return the unit.
- Verified purchase
Bought this after boxing day sale. Wasted hours trying to connect to wifi as called salesperson who told me usb cable was not necessary as you only had to push 2 buttons at the same time to get wifi. What a load of rubbish. Now have to travel 65ks to the shop to get a usb cable. What a ripoff, that they don't include it and increase the price. Would not recommend at all
Cheap and easy to use.
Purchased this off Joyce Mayne for over $20. Was informed it did not come with a USB cable which was no problem as I had quite a few at home.
Very easy to set up and the print quality was excellent. As previously stated here, the replacement cartridges are very expensive, so when my cartridges ran out I simply went back to Joyce Mayne and paid $20 for another Canon MG2560 which, again, came with cartridges.
Doesn't come with USB B to A cable
I am yet to use the printer as it doesn't come with everything needed to get started. The side of the box does state in small print that the USB cable is not included. However, it does not say that there is absolutely no way to connect the printer without it. Extremely poor form. Hopefully, once I have found someone with the correct cable and get set up I have a quality budget printer.
Canon Pixma MG2560
I bought this to replace an old printer. Works perfectly fine. Not expensive but prints good quality documents and easy to use as well. Came with the ink cartridge as well and good thing is it only has two cartridges. Software suite is a good versatile collection of user friendly options. Overall a very good device for the price we pay for.
Good for the price
It was cheap at the post office. On the top of the box it said 'USB cable not included', on the side of the box it said ;USB cable not included', the list of contents on the outside of the box did not show a USB cable. I was not surprised to not find one. Set up was easy, print quality is good and it is good value. Bit of a pain to be liited to one copy at a time when not connected to the computer.
Questions & Answers
My Canon Pixma MG2560 printer/scanner (fine cartridge type) has operated ok for about a year but now makes a very loud clattering noise as it pulls paper through the printing process. The green start button light also flashes as this is happening?
My Canon pixma mg2560 printer/scanner makes a very loud clattering noise as it pulls paper through during the printing process. This has only happened recently, it had a smooth low noise level printing sound previously?
