SOURCE: Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?

The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

SOURCE: pixma mx870 printer error

The solution i have found for this is to remov the print head and clean it manually with a Q-tip and either rubbing alcohol or commercial degreaser (depending on what you have available). This error is caused by ink sticking to the print head due to irregular cleaning of it.
1. Get your printer so that it is at the "home" screen. To do this you may have to follow the procedure at
2. Open the lid of your printer and remove the ink cartridges, carefully placing them upside down on a surface you don't mind possibly dirty-ing up a bit.
3.. Remove the Print Head. This can be done by flipping up the grey arm that closest to you on the head assembly. Once the arm is pppped up, remove the print head itself (the black object towards the back of the assembly.
5: on the bottom of the print head that you have just removed, use a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol / degreaser to clean the ink off of it. Be careful not to put to much pressure on anything.
6. Throw it all back together and you should be good to go.

I have a Canon Printer PIXMA MX870. My black ink (PGBK) has run out. Will the single black (BK) kick in? I've looked for the user manual which might describe this but couldn't find it.

The black ink (smaller cartridge) will not kick in, but if you are just getting the warning that the ink in the larger cartridge is out, you can override the alam by holding down the OK button on the printer. Once you do this, the printer will continue to print, but you have to manually monitor the ink to assess when the cartridge needs to be replaced.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

Cannot receive faxes on Canon Pixma MX870, but can send faxes

I was searching for an answer to this to make sure my new MX870 is correctly set to receive faxes. Here's one answer I came across:

First set Tel-Priority, turn off incoming ring, turn on manual/auto switch, then check how many seconds it takes for your answering machine to come on, and set it a couple of seconds after that. This should do the trick.
