  • 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?

    Pixma MP280 ink cartridge setup

    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.

  • Please can you me tell where the cartridge is hidden in the Pixma MP280 printer and how to replace it? Many thanks, Joe.

    Replacing Canon MP280 print cartridge

    These instructions should be in your Canon Pixma MP280 printer manual. If you don't have this manual any longer you can download it on the Canon website.

  • Hi there, my Canon Pixma MP280 cartridges don't print anywhere near the quantities you say they should do. Why?

    Canon Pixma MP280 ink yields

    The ink yields stated on our website are always based on the manufacturer's estimate. However, please be aware that the yield of a Canon Pixma MP280 ink cartridge is based on printing at 5% coverage of an A4 page. If you're printing anything above 5% coverage or graphics that might use up a lot of ink then the page yield of the cartridge will be significantly less. This hopefully explains why you're not getting the same number of pages as you'd anticipated.

  • Why would I have been sold an 810 black cartridge and 811 colour cartridge for a Canon MP280 printer. If they aren\x92t correct, what do I need?

    Canon Pixma MP280 cartridge numbers

    It depends on where you purchased your Canon Pixma MP280 printer as to which cartridge numbers it requires. In the UK, the correct cartridges for the Canon Pixma MP280 printer are PG-510, PG-512, CL-511 and CL-513 as listed on our website. We don't stock PG-810 or CL-811 ink cartridges as these are non-UK cartridges and suggest that your printer was purchased outside of the UK, or that you've purchased cartridges from a company that supplies ink for non-UK printers. We advise you to buy the cartridges listed on this page if you have the Canon Pixma MP280 printer (UK model). If you have the (US model) Canon Pixma MP280 printer or another version please contact Canon directly to confirm which are the correct cartridge numbers and where to obtain them from.

  • The PG-510 and CL-511 inks i bought in Darty Joinville-le-Pont, France today don't work in my Canon Pixma MP280 printer bought two years ago from the Fortress store, Hong Kong. The label states that they will work in MP 280 printers. Why don't they?

    Canon Pixma MP280 cartridge numbers

    Like DVDs, ink cartridges are specific to the region in which the printer was purchased. Therefore, if your Canon Pixma MP280 printer was purchased in France it's unlikely that you'll be able to use cartridges that were purchased from an online store based in Hong Kong. Cartridge Save only supplies Canon MP280 ink cartridges that are guaranteed to work in Pixma MP280 printers that were purchased in the UK. Often, you'll find that the cartridge numbers are different for different regions of the world although the codes for the Canon Pixma MP280 ink cartridges that we sell are also PG-510 and CL-511. Therefore, we advise you to contact Canon for further information on which cartridge numbers are used in your region. Alternatively, we advise you to contact the supplier of your Canon MP280 ink cartridges for further information on their products and their returns policy.

Canon Pixma MP280 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma MP280 printer

Our Verdict:

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.
