  • My MP970 which is about three years old says it has the wrong printhead installed so I was looking for a replacement for the original printhead?

    The correct printhead for your Canon Pixma MP970 is the QY6-0062. It can be found on this page:

  • You do not list a complete set of 7 inks for the Canon Pixma MP970. Why is this?

    Pixma MP970 ink sets

    Some of the printers in this range only take 5 cartridges and do not take the photo cyan and photo magenta cartridges. Therefore, we list the pack of 5 which is suitable for all the printers and the extra two cartridges for this printer have to be purchased separately.

  • My Canon Pixma MP970 printer uses seven cartridges: PGI-5BK, CLI-8BK, CLI-8Y, CLI-8M, CLI-8C, CLI-8PM and CLI-8PC. However, your 'pack' only shows five cartridges. Can you advise what your pack is compatible with and how I order / what are the options for the remaining 'tanks'? Best regards, Don. Parker.

    Set of ink for Pixma MP970

    Our set of five compatible Canon Pixma MP970 ink cartridges contains the PGI-5BK, CLI-8BK, CLI-8C, CLI-8M amd CLI-8Y ink cartridges for the Pixma MP970. Unfortunately, we don't make a pack that will cater for every possible combination of cartridges. Most printers that use these inks will only require these five inks so the package we offer contains the most popular cartridges. However, you can easily get the full set of inks for your Pixma MP970 by purchasing this 5 colour pack plus the two remaining cartridges as individual items. Simply click on 'Add to basket' beside the cartridge / pack you wish to order and proceed to the checkout to complete payment. The two cartridges not included in the 5 colour multipack can be seen here:

  • My Canon Pixma MP970 printer uses seven cartridges: PGI-5BK, CLI-8BK, CLI-8Y, CLI-8M, CLI-8C, CLI-8PM and CLI-8PC. What should I order please?

    Ordering Canon MP970 cartridges

    This depends on which cartridgess have run out. We do sell sets of Canon Pixma MP970 ink if you want to get better value for money. At present, we do a set of five compatible Canon MP970 ink cartridges. Please be aware that these are not genuine Canon inks and the pack doesn't include the photo cyan or photo magenta inks. There are other packs to choose from including a set of four genuine Canon Pixma MP970 ink cartridges. We do sell all seven cartridges individually as a genuine Canon cartridge or a cheaper compatible version. We recommend that if a cartridge you need isn't supplied in one of our multipacks you order it as a separate cartridge in addition to the multipack.

  • Do your replacement Canon MP970 cartridges contain chips to tell the printer their status?

    Compatible Canon MP970 cartridge chips

    All of the cartridges we sell, including our compatible Canon Pixma MP970 ink cartridges, are fitted with the correct chip so you can install them directly into your printer without any problems. It can be the case that sometimes compatible cartridges will not always report the ink levels accurately but this doesn't affect your ability to use up all of the ink within each cartridge.

  • I'm looking for a Canon QY6-0062-010 prithead for the Pixma MP970 but can't find one anywhere. Can you help?

    Canon MP970 printhead

    Unfortunately, the Canon QY6-0062 printhead for the Canon MP970 printer is a product that has now been discontinued so we'd advise you to contact Canon directly for further information on the availability of this item.

Canon Pixma MP970 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma MP970 printer

Our Verdict:

An upgraded version of the older MP960 printer, the Canon Pixma MP970 adds networking to its already packed set of features. It can scan, print and copy, and boasts excellent photo printing. However, the Canon Pixma MP970 does not have faxing capabilities (typical of photo-centric units). It is also slow, which is surprising, considering how impressive the print rates of earlier Pixma MFPs are.


The Canon Pixma MP970 is a basic-looking device with a front-yield paper tray for loading empty media as well as catching printouts. The scanner/copier still sits on top of the unit, and a small display can be used to preview print jobs as well as navigate the machine's menus. The LCD display also makes PC-less operation much easier. The Canon Pixma MP970 also uses Smart LED tanks, which contain lamps that blink to warn users that ink is running low.


Some advantages of using the Canon Pixma MP970 include better photo prints and resolution as high as 4800x9600 dpi. The machine also accepts various memory cards and can be connected directly to digital cameras and camera phones. The scanner can handle slides and negatives and boasts 48-bit internal colour depth.


The Canon Pixma MP970 is a bulky device; Canon claims that the extra space is necessary for their patented ink technology to work best. Ink price is still an issue. Print speeds are surprisingly slow, especially when printing high resolution images.
