  • Lights flash when only the black cartridge is installed in my Canon Pixma MG3550 printer. Will it not work without the colour cartridge? What happens if I don't want colour? Thanks, Mike.

    Canon MG3550 cartridge setup

    The Canon Pixma MG3550 is a colour inkjet printer so it does require that you have both the black and the tri-colour cartridge installed with some ink in each cartridge for it to work. If you aren't using a lot of colour you can leave your colour cartridge installed within the machine and only replace the black cartridge on a regular basis as and when it runs out but it won't be possible to print without the tri-colour cartridge being present with at least some remaining ink.

  • Hello, we have a Canon Pixma MG3500 printer which doesn't appear in your list. Please can you kindly advise us of which are the correct cartridges for it? Thank you , Andrew.

    Canon MG3550 ink compatibility

    We don't list the Canon Pixma MG3500 as this is the name of the series rather than an actual printer. If you have a Canon Pixma MG3500 series printer that was purchased in the UK it's likely to be the Canon Pixma MG3550 printer although you might want to check on the printer itself or in the manual / computer software to confirm this. We can only confirm that the Canon PG-540 / 540XL and CL-541 / CL-541XL cartridges listed here will work in a Canon Pixma MG3550 printer that was purchased in the UK.

  • I need the correct ink for a Canon Pixma MG3500. My printer name isn't exactly listed like yours, the nearest being the MG 3550 series? Please confirm?

    Canon MG3550 ink compatibility

    Canon Pixma MG3500 refers to a series of printers rather than a specific model number. The only UK printer model we list in the Pixma MG3500 series is the Canon Pixma MG3550 inkjet printer and this is likely to be the actual model number written on the printer if your printer was purchased in the UK. There are other models in the Pixma MG3500 series which are non-UK printers so we'd advise you to check in the manual or on the printer itself to confirm the full model number. Cartridge Save can only supply the correct ink cartridges for printers that were purchased in the UK.

Canon Pixma MG3550 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma MG3550 printer 10 September 2013

Our Verdict:

Offering print, copy, and scan functionality, the Canon Pixma MG3550 all-in-one colour printer is a versatile choice for modern homes and offices that would like an all-in-one device to simplify their document and image production needs. Wi-Fi connectivity and direct printing capabilities make the Canon Pixma MG3550 inkjet photo printer quite versatile. However, the Canon Pixma MG3550 Wi-Fi all-in-one printer with easy mobile printing features lacks a display screen.

Design

The Canon Pixma MG3550 photo printer comes in a sleek and sophisticated design with a matte plastic frame that measures 449mm wide, 152mm tall, and 304mm deep, and weighs 5.4Kg. Its main interfaces are high-speed USB B port and Wi-Fi. Paper is loaded in front and the tray's capacity is up to 100 sheets of plain paper. The CIS flatbed scanner can handle A4-sized documents and photos. The operator panel is simplified with well-labelled buttons.

Advantages

For its class, the Canon Pixma MG3550 prints fast at up to 9.9ppm in monochrome and 5.7ppm in colour. Built-in Wi-Fi helps save time when printing from smartphones and tablets using the Canon Pixma MG3550 Wi-Fi all-in-one. Results are produced in smooth and sharp detail because of the 4800x1200dpi print resolution. The Canon MG3550 inkjet printer supports borderless and automatic two-sided printing, as well as the PIXMA printing solutions app, Apple AirPrint, and Google Cloud Print. High yield Canon MG3550 cartridges make the device more affordable to run.

Disadvantages

Because the MG-3550 colour inkjet printer uses a tri-colour cartridge, printing costs can get expensive in the long run. The Pixma MG3550 all-in-one inkjet is heavy and bulky, so it is difficult to transport and set up within a limited workspace. There are no additional options to expand the paper capacity of the Canon MG-3550 multifunction printer. There is also no LCD screen.
