Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Canon MP-730 It never was a good color printer, the red was not printing, but that is not why I purchased it. But now it the black ink stopped printing altogether, so no incoming faxes, no copies and no printing documents. I have tried both internal head cleaning procedures but they won't work. Can the print head be cleaned? If not, can it be replaced reasonably? Is there a better all-in-one that prints only B&W, has cheaper than Canon ink?

    I just got back from Staples and looked at the Brother MFC 7340. It is a 4-1 but it is a toner cartridge. It is a B&W only. It is $ 300.oo and they say a toner cartridge would get me about 2,000 copies (average) for about $ 70.oo. Are toners a more economical way to go?

I can recommend the HP all-in-ones. They are the cheapest per page and are like all HP products - well built and reliable.
I have the L7590 which is duplex printing, photo printing, ADF, Fax, etc.
I don't know of any inkjet all-in-one that is B&W only. If that is what you are after, I would recommend a laser all-in-one like the HP Laserjet 3052 or the Canon imageCLASS MF4150

    Any laser printer is cheaper than the inkjets - although HP are getting down to less than 1c per page for B&W.


    I am not a fan of Brother, so I can't recommend them.

    From PC World review:


    "The MFC-7340 is the cheapest product in Brother's refreshed line-up of mono laser multifunctions. It offers simplicity and cost efficiency in a no-nonsense package. For small businesses that need a multifunction that's cheap to run, the MFC-7340 might be suitable."


    So, there you go - low price, but for your needs it could be perfect.

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!

Canon MP 730 no black


You can get the MP 730 for Data Bazaar for 120.00 with no shipping charges. Hard to pay 160.00 for a repair when a new one is so much less. Just FYI.
