  • I have the Canon MG5170 printer but can't seem to find it when I search. There are similar model numbers but can you tell me what's compatible with this machine? Thanks , Cliff.

    Canon Pixma MG series ink

    This page only shows cartridges for the Canon Pixma MG5550 printer which is a different model. We can't confirm that the Canon Pixma MG5170 printer is a valid UK printer model so we couldn't advise you on which cartridges are compatible with this machine. It appears that this printer may only be available in Asia. Please contact Canon directly to source the correct cartridges for this printer as we can only supply ink for Canon printers that were purchased in the UK.

  • The Canon Pixma MG5550 printer appears to have a grey cartridge. Do you sell this?

    Ink cartridges for Canon Pixma MG5550

    The Canon Pixma MG5550 inkjet photo printer is a 5-ink all-in-one device so it doesn't use the Canon CLI-551GY grey ink cartridge. You can only use the pigment black, black, cyan, magenta and yellow ink cartridges listed on this page in the Canon MG5550 printer. For further confirmation of which cartridges can be used in the Pixma MG5550, please follow the link we've provided to the official Canon website: http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Printers/Inkjet/PIXMA_MG5550/

  • You advertise a four cartridge set including a single black, but aren't five cartridges including two blacks needed in place at all times for the printer to work?

    Canon Pixma MG5550 cartridge sets

    It depends which printer you have as to whether or not you need five cartridges. The Canon Pixma MG5550 is a 5 cartridge printer so you'll need to install two black cartridges (PGI-550PGBK/XL and CLI-551BK/XL) as well as the three colour cartridges to operate the printer. However, the majority of machines that use these cartridges only require four cartridges with one black which is why we only do the 4 colour multipack of CLI-551BK/C/M/Y cartridges. You can, however, purchase a genuine or compatible multipack with all five of the high capacity (XL) cartridges for this printer.

  • With a Canon Pixma MG5550 printer, does it lock up if you don't use Canon inks?

    Using compatible Canon MG5550 inks

    Our premium brand compatible Canon PGI-550XL and CLI-551XL ink cartridges are specifically designed to work in the Canon Pixma MG5550 printer and won't cause the printer to lock up. Occasionally, it's possible that a compatible cartridge will generate a 'cartridge not recognised' error but you should be able to bypass this error by continuing to print as normal. If the cartridge won't print then you can contact our customer service team who will run through some troubleshooting steps such as re-installing the cartridge to get it to work. All of our compatible PGI-551XL and CLI-551XL ink cartridges are fitted with the correct chip for use in the Canon Pixma MG5550 printer and if you're ever unsatisfied by the quality or performance of these premium brand cartridges you can use our 100% money back guarantee to claim a full refund.

  • This Canon MG5550 printer has a PGI-550 black cartridge and a CLI-551 black cartridge but it doesn't ever seem to use ink from the 551 cartridge. I now have 5 full CLI-551 black cartridges (left over) from previous multipack purchases. How can I get the printer to use the CLI-551 black ink instead of PGI-550XL black?

    Canon Pixma MG5550 black ink use

    It depends on which type of black prints you make as to which of the Canon MG5550 black ink cartridges is used by the printer. The Canon PGI-550 black ink is a pigment ink used when you print text documents which might explain why you use up more of this ink if your print work is mostly text based. The Canon CLI-551 black cartridge has dye-based black ink used for photo printing and graphics so you might have used this ink more sparingly. Both of the black PGI-550 and CLI-551 ink cartridges do need to be present for the printer to work and have some remaining ink. However, if you use up the PGI-550 black ink much more frequnetly then we advise you to buy single ink packs of PGI-550 ink and then you'll only have to repalce this ink as and when you need it.

Canon Pixma MG5550 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma MG5550 printer 10 September 2013

Our Verdict:

When instant web connectivity matters, the SOHO user can consider the Canon Pixma MG5550 all-in-one colour inkjet printer for its built-in Wi-Fi and cloud and mobile capabilities. With print, copy and scan functions plus Wi-Fi the Canon MG5550 printer offers great multifunctionality. This device helps save money and space with its all-in-one functions, too, but the Canon Pixma MG5550 photo all-in-one with Wi-Fi lacks a few features that could compromise its efficiency and user-friendliness.

Design

The Canon Pixma MG5550 printer is a stylish and sophisticated multifunction device with scan, print, and copy functions, a five-ink system for savings, and a colour 6.2cm TFT display screen for easy user operation. The Pixma MG5550 inkjet photo printer weighs 6.4Kg and measures 148mm tall, 369mm deep, and 455mm wide. The CIS flatbed scanner can handle documents that are a maximum of 216x297mm in size. The front paper tray can handle up to 100 sheets at a time. Wireless connectivity is a standard, but it is also possible to connect the Canon Pixma MG5550 from its high-speed USB B port.

Advantages

Versatile media handling makes the Canon Pixma MG5550 ideal for printing iron-on transfers, labels, stickers, and glossy or matte photographs. It features high scan and print resolution for accurate and smoother results. Time and energy-saving features include double-sided printing, an automatic document feeder, Cloud support, and wireless connectivity. PIXMA Printing Solutions app can be downloaded for remote control over the Canon MG-5550 inkjet printer. Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print are also supported. To be more cost-efficient, the Pixma MG-5550 printer can use high capacity XL ink cartridges.

Disadvantages

The Canon Pixma MG5550 photo printer is heavy and tends to take up more space. It is strictly an A4 device, so larger media cannot be used. The budget-conscious might find the Canon Pixma MG5550 all-in-one to be expensive to purchase.
