  • does the XL black ink cartridge for canon px 3550 use up both cartridge spaces or can I install it and keep colour catridge in place?

    xl print cartridge

    Dear Sue,

    Thank you for your question.

    The XL black cartridge is the same size as the standard capacity cartridge however it holds more ink, therefore this cartridge only fits into one black slot.

    I hope this helps.

  • Could you advise me on which ink cartridge is compatible with the Canon Pixma MG3500 series?

    Canon PG-540XL ink cartridge compatibility

    This original Canon PG-540XL high capacity black ink cartridge is compatible with any of the printer models listed on this page. The only printer from the Canon Pixma MG3500 series we list as a valid UK printer model is the Canon Pixma MG3550 printer which does accept this genuine Canon PG-540XL ink cartridge. Pixma MG3500 isn't listed as this is the name of the series rather than a specific model number. If you don't have a Canon Pixma MG3550 printer that was purchased in the UK, we wouldn't advise you to order this Canon PG-540XL ink cartridge, as it's likely that you have a non-UK printer that will require different number cartridges to the ones we supply.

    Canon PG540XL ink cartridge compatibility

    This genuine Canon PG-540XL high yield black cartridge is compatible with any of the printers listed on this page under the heading "This item is guaranteed to work in the following printers:" To see which printers use both the PG-540XL and CL-541XL cartridges please see the printer listing on the PG-540XL and CL-541XL multipack product page using the link attached: https://www.cartridgesave.co.uk/PG540XL-CL541XL.html

    Answered by Damon Tetley (Staff Member) - about 6 years ago
  • Are the Canon PG540 and the PG540 XL cartridges the same size? Or, does the XL mean that PG540XL has a different size or just more ink inside?

    Canon PG540XL cartridge size

    The Canon PG-540XL cartridge contains more ink than the Canon PG-540 cartridge. PG-540XL ink cartridges can print up to 600 pages whereas PG-540 ink cartridges can only print up to 180 pages because they contain less ink. The physical size of the cartridges is not important as long as they are both listed as compatible with your printer.

    Answered by Paul Kielty (Staff Member) - about 8 years ago
  • What's the difference in ink content between the Canon PG540 and the PG540 XL cartridges please?

    Ink capacity of PG-540 vs PG-540XL

    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, Canon don't provide ink volume measurements for these cartridges. Instead, they give an expected page yield of 180 pages for the Canon PG-540 black ink cartridge and 600 pages for the Canon PG-540XL high capacity black ink cartridge. These yields are based on 5% coverage of an A4 sheet of paper.
