Paper jams too much

published

Paper jams with two sheets or twenty. I got a replacement and the same thing, gave it away to see if it was me and the paper jam continued and the scanner on both did very bad scans. We tried to trouble shoot and took it to a repair shop. Not a good model MF230

Great reliable low end printer

published

Purchased 2nd hand actually, for $5! Pretty good print output, excellent for the price. Would have been nice to have wifi. Nice and simple to use. Automatic detects with Linux and works without any setup (as does the scanner). As for the ink, I just keep refilling it with refill kits (x3 100ml $20-$30). When the printer complains it's out of ink I refill and hold down the stop/reset button for 5 seconds. Then keep printing. If it won't - throw it away and keep smiling!

Does the job - no complaint.

published

Bought from Officeworks for $15. Have been using it for half a year, so far used it to print B/W and colour documents & scan documents with ease. Installation was easy and really can't complain. Printer low ink light started flashing after less than 100 pages of documents being printed but I could still print, don't replace it until it is really empty.

Absolutely great little printer

published

Im so happy I purchased this little printer it is so easy to operate, I especially like the simple method with duplex printing and the two (B & C) ink cartridges which are both reasonably cheap to buy. When I first installed this printer on my pc I found it wouldnt print anything, not even a test page, the mechanics were working ok but the ink wasnt. The next morning i rebooted the pc and everything worked perfectly. Also the square fit grey cord that connects to pc is not included with this printer, so keep a hold of an old cord which solves the problem nicely. Just gotta love the simplicity of cheap Cannons.

Good cheap printer

published

Remember how much you are paying then this is a great printer. This is my third as I work in dusty conditions and hard to keep clean.
Regarding ink.. ONLY CHANGE THE INK WHEN THERE IS NO INK ON THE PAPER, as the computer always says it's on empty.
Usually it means it's at about 50%.... I don't understand people complaining

False economy. Ink runs out very quickly.

Best of the cheapies at $12, still supplies are overpriced

published

This is the third of them under-priced multi function printers I just could not resist. It is the heaviest but it print and scan qualities are excellent. Bring your own USB cord, correctly declared on box. No wireless, no output paper tray but built in power supply for less clutter. Easy to set up and makes good photo copies too. The scanner is the same as it's $15 cousin from Big W but the printer is double the resolution with the ugly trade off of small ink yields.
Sadly if ink supplies do not become reasonably priced this one is going back when the ink runs out.

I don't there is any such thing as a Canon IP300. If you meant IP3000, the answer is no.

Hi Vicki, assuming you have purchased a Canon branded cartridge, it may only need a head clean. With this type of printer the head is part of the cartridge (it's a great idea). I believe every time the printer powers on it will do a short clean and use some ink (sadly). If you are using a Mac or Windows computer you can try navigating to the printer on your computer (or search for printer help/tools) and there you should find a wizard or option to clean the black print head (maybe also deep clean). If that doesn't sharpen the print up after a couple of cleans pull the cartridge you can try (be careful) to remove the cartridge and place the head side (brown slit) onto a clean tissue for about 5 seconds. The ink should bleed into the tissue very easily. Reinstall, clean heads via the software and try printing.

Can I plug an IPad into my Canon Pixma 230 to print out documents?

Not really no. You will have more luck with a wifi optioned printer. Canon lists compatible printers here: (https://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/pixma_wireless_printing_and_app_compatibility/#apple)
