  • I have self filled my printer with ink x 3 colours, but it still says ink has run out and won't print. Can you help? Regards, Steve.

    CL-541 ink refilling

    Unfortunately, we do not recommend refilling these cartridges. It is also important when refilling any cartridge to refill it whilst it is low, rather than empty, otherwise you cannot bypass the low message. You may wish to remove the ink you have put in the cartridge and save it, by a new colour ink and then refill it when it is low. I cannot guarentee this would work but it is more likely to work for you than refilling a cartridge which is already reporting as empty.

  • Can you tell me the amount of medium quality prints on photo paper that you would expect to get from this Canon CL541 print cartridge?

    Canon CL-541 ink for photo printing

    This genuine tri-colour Canon CL-541 ink cartridge can print approximately 180 pages at 5% coverage of an A4 page. We cannot advise you how many photo prints you would get at medium quality as this would depend on your ink usage. For instance, if you printed a full colour photo it would be a lot more than 5% coverage on the page and therefore you could not expect to get 180 prints. The best way to monitor your ink usage should be through your printer as it should tell you how much ink the cartridge has left.

  • Will you be bringing out a compatible Canon CL-541 cartridge anytime soon?

    Compatible CL541 ink cartridge

    We don't know of any immediate plans to bring out a compatible Canon CL-541 cartridge for this printer at the moment as this product is relatively new to market. As soon as we're able to supply a compatible CL541 ink cartridge we'll update our website accordingly.

    For technical support issues of this nature please contact Apple or the manufacturer of your printer directly. I'm afraid that we're only a supplier of printer consumables and we cannot provide technical support for printers.

  • Are there any cheap compatible ink cartridges that can be used as an alternative to this genuine Canon CL-541 tri-colour ink for the Canon MG4150 printer?

    Cheap compatible cartridge to replace CL-541

    Yes, although we don't stock a compatible CL-541 ink cartridge, we do supply a compatible Canon CL-541XL ink cartridge which can also be used instead of the genuine Canon CL-541 colour cartridge. The compatible CL-541XL ink cartridge is a high capacity tri-colour cartridge which contains more ink than the standard yield CL-541 cartridge.

    Refillable CL-541 cartridges

    Unfortunately, we don't supply a refill kit which is suitable for use with the Canon MG3150 cartridges so we're unable to confirm whether the CL-541 cartridges are easly refillable. However, we do supply compatible Canon Pixma MG3150 ink cartridges as a cheaper alternative to genuine Canon inks.

  • What's the difference between the colour CL541 and CL541XL cartridges or the black PG540 and PG540XL cartridges for the Canon MG3250 printer?

    XL cartridges for Canon MG3250

    The CL-541 and PG-540 are standard capacity cartridges as opposed to the CL-541XL and PG-540XL which are high capacity cartridges. Basically, they're exactly the same type of cartridge except the XL type contain more ink in them and offer better value for money in terms of the cost-per-print.

    Refilling Canon CL-541 ink cartridges

  • Can you please tell me the difference between CL-541 and CL-541XL cartridges? The same question applies for PG-540 and PG-540XL ink cartridges? Thank you.

    Canon CL-541 and CL-541XL ink

    This genuine Canon CL-541 tri-colour ink cartridge is a standard capacity cartridge that prints up to 180 pages whereas the genuine Canon CL-541XL is a high capacity tri-colour ink cartridge that contains more ink and will print approximately 400 pages. The PG-540 cartridge is standard capacity whereas the PG-540XL cartridge is high capacity and contains more ink. This is the only difference between these types of cartridges, the XL cartridges have more ink.

  • Can you please tell me which cartridges are used by the Canon Pixma MG3100 printer because I can't find this printer on many websites?

    Ink for Canon Pixma MG3100 series printers

    Canon Pixma MG3100 is the name of a series of printers rather than a specific model number which should explain why not many websites list this as a model. We advise you to check the model number on the printer itself or in the user manual. We currently list two printers in this series (Pixma MG3150 and Pixma MG3155). These printers both use the same cartridges (PG-540, PG-540XL, CL-541 and CL-541XL) so providing you have a Pixma MG3100 series printer that was purchased in the UK then any of these cartridges, including the CL-541 colour cartridge seen here, will be compatible.

  • The Canon MG3200 printer isn't on your list. Does the CL-541 ink you supply work in this printer?

    Canon MG3200 series ink

    Canon Pixma MG3200 is the name of the series rather than an actual printer model. We advise you to check on the printer itself or in the manual for the specific model number. We can only guarantee that this genuine Canon CL-541 ink cartridge will work in a Canon Pixma MG3250 printer that was purchased in the UK as this is the only printer we currently list in the MG3200 series.

  • I recently bought extra capacity black and colour cartridges from you. I have to say that the quality and life of the cartridges was astounding. Do you refill the cartridges or just sell new ones? If you refill, what's the price? Thank you, Peter Brandon.

    Refilled CL-541 cartridges

    Thank you for your feedback. This is a genuine Canon CL-541 tri-colour ink cartridge. We do have our own Cartridge Save branded inks which have been professionally remanufactured so they are ready to install directly into your Canon printer to provide the same high level of performance and image quality as the genuine Canon inks. Unfortunately, we don't offer a refilling service that would enable you to return empty cartridges to us for refilling.

    Refilling Canon CL-541 cartridges

However, we do sell a compatible Canon CL-541XL high capacity colour ink cartridge which has already been professionally refilled and can act as a cheaper alternative to this genuine Canon CL541 tri-colour cartridge if your printer accepts the high capacity CL-541XL cartridge.

  • I've found the black cartridge for my Canon Pixma MG3250 printer but am unable to find the colour equivalent. Why not?

    Canon CL-541 colour ink compatibility

    This genuine Canon CL-541 tri-colour cartridge is the correct colour cartridge for use in the Canon Pixma MG3250 printer. It's a standard capacity cartridge which is equivalent to using the standard capacity black Canon PG-540 cartridge. You can also use a high capacity Canon CL-541XL tri-colour ink cartridge in this printer which would be equivalent to using the high capacity black Canon PG-540XL ink cartridge.

  • If black ink runs out before the colour CL-541 cartridge, do I have to replace both at the same time?

    Replacing Canon CLI-541 ink

    You only need to replace this genuine Canon CL-541 colour ink cartridge when prompted to do so by your printer and as long as there's still remaining ink in your black cartridge you won't be required to replace the black ink at the same time.

If you're looking for compatible Canon MX525 ink cartridges we only currently stock the black PG-540XL compatible ink for this printer although we do have a low price guarantee on all of the genuine Canon Pixma MX525 inks and multipacks.

  • I have a Prixma MG2950 which has 545/546 ink. When I look this model up it rarely appears. However the MG2250 does and this seems to take either the 540 or 545 ink. Are these inks interchangeable inks. I hope so as 540 are cheaper than 545.

    ink cartridge confusion

    Those printers take different cartridges I'm afraid.

    The MG2950 takes the PG545/CL546 cartridges. And the MG2250 takes the PG540/CL541 cartridges. Please see the below links.

  • this is my very first printer, it has run out of ink after only 28 A4 prints, is this normal?

    541 carridge

    We would expect a standard size cartridge 8ml to print approximately 180 pages at 5% coverage of an A4 size page. It would also depend on the type of printing e.g. if you are printing full colour photos. If you have purchased the cartridge from us, i would be more than happy to look into this for you.

  • How much extra ink is there in the CL-541 XL cartridges compared to the standard type? Do they work out to be better value?

    Canon CL-541 extra ink life

    Yes, XL cartridges are always designed to deliver a cheaper cost-per-print than the standard ones and the CL-541XL cartridge is no exception. This standard capacity Canon CL-541 tri-colour cartridge has an approximate capacity of 180 pages compared to a capacity of 400 pages offered by the Canon CL541XL high capacity tri-colour carridge. If you're looking for the best value then we would recommend the high capacity Canon CL-541XL ink cartridge, provided that your printer is compatible with this cartridge.

  • Do you have to change both the CL-541 colour cartridge and the black cartridge when black ink runs out on the Canon Pixma MX535 printer?

    Replacing Canon CL-541 ink cartridges

    This genuine Canon CL-541 tri-colour ink cartridge only needs to be replaced when it runs out and you won't have to change the black ink at the same time unless your black cartridge is also empty. However, the Canon Pixma MX535 printer will require that this tri-colour CL-541 ink cartridge and the black cartridge are always both installed with some remaining ink within each cartridge in order for it to work.

    Canon CL-541 cartridge compatibility

    This genuine Canon CL-541 tri-colour ink cartridge will work in your Canon Pixma MG2250 printer. The MG2250 printer requires you to install one black cartridge (PG-540 or PG-540XL) and one colour cartridge (CL-541 or CL-541XL). The XL ink cartridges simply contain more ink.
