You can continue printing after the cartridges tell you they are empty if you refill them and read how to disable ink status monitor. You will also need to go into printer preferences/setting and under the last tab there is an option to print with...

Average Quality Prints, I have used this MP250 Printer for over a year with no problems. I have scanned, copied, and printed and am very satisfied with this. I would recommend this printer for it low price and great general printing performance

Cartridges are very expensive... I have used very cheap generic ink and the photo quality of print is not so great, but web pages and document printing is nice. As with all generic inks I found normal print setting are not very good... setting the...

Don't waste your time

 

I've had this printer for about 1 year and 2 months. I've had problems ever since purchase. First of many problems was ink cartridge not being recognized, displaying errors on the small LCD screen on printer, replacing ink cartridge did not fix...

Photo Printers

 

Canon carts & paper prices are higher than any other mnfr. Save money and acquire a CIS. There are alternatives around and yes there is such a thing as an inkjet printer forum.

Very good scanner and a very descent printer for apps such as broschure, scrapbooking etc

If your into photo printing you best pass this model up. For whatever reason it seems to leave a filmy or cloudy cast over the images when compared to any of my HP prints. By themselves, without comparison, it does ok, but try as I miight it simply can...
