Pixma MP280 ink cartridge setup see 1 answer
I can't get the printer (Canon MP280) to work although I've installed the inks and followed instructions carefully. I do not want to ever use colour ink. We never do photos and we've only used black ink cartridges for all the printers we've owned in the past. We only need the printer to print emails or download news items from the internet. The manual doesn't say we need to have a colour cartridge installed. If indeed, the printer will not work without one, I never would have bought this printer. I hope you will help me?
As we do not sell printers it's difficult for us to advise on the specific functions of every printer model. It is common that a colour printer such as the Canon Pixma MP280 will require both a black and a colour cartridge installed in the printer with at least some remaining ink in order to print in black. However, there may be a setting that will bypass this so you can print without a colour cartridge. This information should be available in your printer manual. Otherwise, we would advise that you contact Canon directly for technical support.Answered by Daniel Zieba (Staff Member) - about 1 year ago

How many prints see 1 answer
Hi there, my canon pixma mp280 does'nt print anywhere near the quantities you say it should do. Why
Thank you for your question.
The page yield measurement that is listed on our website is based on a five percent coverage of the page (this works out to be around three lines of plain text). This is the industry standard measurement for listing cartridge printing capabilities. The reason for this is that the amount you print per page will vary from print to print and therefore it is not possible for us to advise on how long the cartride will last. Five percent coverage is used across the board and is designed as more of a tool for comparison between cartridges rather than a guide for use.Answered by Paul Kielty (Staff Member) - 8 months ago

Canon Pixma MP280 Printer Review
Expert review of the Canon Pixma MP280 printer 01 March, 2012
This inexpensive all-in-one printer packs powerful features in one compact and stylish body and is designed for small offices and homes. It makes photo printing easier for the amateur photographer. However, the Canon Pixma MP280 lacks wireless networking and a document feeder. Users also complain that the control panel is overwhelming, and that replacement inks are pricey.
The Pixma MP280 is sleek and compact device at 6 inches tall and almost 18 inches wide, so it does not take up too much space. It is quite lightweight and mobile, with a sturdy construction. The Canon Pixma MP280 can be noisy when in ‘fast’ mode. The control panel is readily accessible on top of the machine, but it lacks an LCD screen. Connectivity options are limited to wired USB. The scanner promises vivid images with a resolution of 2400 pixels per inch.
It is an inexpensive multifunction printer that can scan and copy, too. The print quality is solid especially for graphics and text. It is capable of HD Photo printing as well as fast borderless printing (a 4x6-inch borderless print on photo paper is finished in just 43 seconds). Using the Hybrid Ink System, the Canon Pixma MP280 delivers crisp text and vivid photos.
The Canon Pixma MP280’s ‘quiet mode’ doesn’t seem to work. Noise level is still high, even when printing drafts. At 4.8 ppm in colour and 8.4 ppm in monochrome, it is slower than similar printers from other brands. Inks for the Canon Pixma MP280 are not budget-friendly. Some users report being confused with the control panel, too. Connectivity is limited to a USB cord, and there are no built-in card readers or wireless capabilities, making it time-consuming to print documents and photos from mobile devices.
