    I'm looking for a good printer after the last two HP inkjet had paper feed
    problems no more HP for me.
    I only need printing and scanning no fax capability. Most printing is text
    and Google maps. My printing needs are not that much. I'm looking at the
    Canon Pixma MP610 which gets very good reviews on Amazon. I believe it uses
    CLi-8 inkjet cartridges four color including black and another black
    cartridge for text printing. . My concern is can I refill the canon
    cartridges? If so, which refill ink do I use? Aren't the newer inkjet
    printers using a different ink? Any comments for Canon mp 610 inkjet users
    are most welcome. What should I do to stop the inkjet cartridges from
    clogging up I don't print that much?

    It's an excellent MF printer, top quality results. All Canon ink tanks use
    chips, so if you want to refill you will need to disable the ink level
    monitoring. There's lots of info available from the various ink sellers on
    how this is done. There's nothing you need to do to prevent clogging except
    use the printer once in a while. All tanks are purged in a cleaning cycle.

    I set up thr printer, aligned the printer heads and scanned a document.
    I don't see an option in the software to scan for software updates.
    Do I do that manually at the Canon site or am I missing something?
    BTW, the Canon is much higher quality construction than any HP inkjet I've

    There's no particular reason to look for updates to the drivers, but if you
    want to, you do need to visit the Canon site.

    Hi Tom
    Did you get the Pixma 610 and if so have you still got it? Are you on Windows or a mac and if the latter is the printer working on Sierra 10.12?

    hey guys!

    Has anyone purchased the canon mcP5B ink cartidges? It has a orange cap and I am just wondering if I should just twist it? Does it matter which way I twist it? Cheers!
