  • To keep printer's performance, Canon printer performs cleaning automatically according to its condition. When the printer performs cleaning, a small amount of ink is consumed. In this case, all colours of ink may be consumed.
    [Cleaning function]
    The cleaning function helps the printer to suck air bubbles or ink itself from the nozzle and thus
    prevents print quality degradation or nozzle clogging.
  • The repairing parts for printers will be available five years after production is discontinued. Depending on your model, we may ask you to replace it with a new model, or one with almost the same performance as a maintenance service. In this case, you may not be able to use the supplies or accessories for the model or the compatible OS will be changed.
  • To obtain good printing quality, use up ink within six months after opening.
  • Depending on your terminal, such as a computer or a smartphone, or the operating system of your terminal, such as your computer or smartphone, the estimated ink level information or message displayed on the screen of your terminal may be different from the information or message displayed on the operation panel of the printer. Also, a part of the estimated ink level message displayed on the operation panel of the printer may not be displayed and/or may be displayed at a different point in time. Canon recommends that you use the information and message displayed on the operation panel of the printer as your reference. Note, such information and displayed message serve only as a guideline.
  • Depending on the paper or the print settings used, colour inks may still be consumed even when you print a document or perform printing in black and white. When any of the colours of ink has run out, you need to replace the ink cartridge.
  • You need to install ink cartridges of all colours whether you perform black and white printing or colour printing. If any of the ink cartridges is not installed, an error occurs and you cannot perform printing.
  • When you use the Canon printer for the first time after you install the bundled ink cartridges, the printer consumes a small amount of ink to enable printing by filling the nozzles of the Print Head with ink. For this reason, the number of sheets that can be printed with the first set of ink cartridges is fewer than the succeeding set of ink cartridges.
  • The printing costs described in the brochures or websites are based on the consumption data from not the first ink cartridge but the succeeding set of ink cartridges.
  • The warranty term for details, contact a Canon authorised sales representative in the country or region you live in.
  • Ink cartridges sold are generally meant for use with the printers sold in the same region. The ink cartridges may bear unique labels or configurations and may not be compatible for use with printers sold in another region. To ensure optimal performance of your printer, please check with your local Canon office or authorised Canon reseller before relocating your printer from the location of purchase.
  • Regarding a solution to a problem caused by using non-genuine ink cartridges (including ones supplemented with non-genuine ink by making a hole in the cartridge or so), a fee will be charged even within the warranty term. Keep this in mind when you used non-genuine ink.
  • If you use non-genuine ink cartridges (including ones supplemented with non-genuine ink by making a hole in the cartridge or so), they may have a negative effect on the performance of the printer or the printing quality may be reduced. In some rare occasions, although there are no safety issues, using non-genuine inks has caused overheating of the print head and smoke emission from the print head due to the absence of an ingredient found in genuine ink.
    (Note that this does not apply to usage of all non-genuine inks.)
