Customer Questions & Answers

Ask us a question we're happy to help!

  • The number of pages that can be printed with only the black ink is large. Will I be able to print without coloured ink or is does the Pixma iP3600 need all the inks to be in place?

    Black ink usage

    The majority of printers will require both black and colour cartridges to be able to print in any colour. To check this you can simply remove the colour cartridge and attempt to print a page with just the black cartridge installed.

    If you use black ink more than colour ink, then you can replace the black cartridge when it is empty and only replace the colour cartridges when they are empty. As long as there is some remaining ink in the colour tanks you should be able to continue printing in black.

  • Hi, it states that the page yield for the black Canon CLI-521BK ink cartridge is over 3,000 pages! Surely this is a misprint?

    Canon CLI-521BK page yield

    It is correct that the Canon CLI-521BK ink cartridge should achieve approximately 3,425 pages. The figures we provide for ink yields are those specified on Canon's UK website. However, please be aware that ink yields can vary across different printer models so you may find that the CLI-521BK ink cartridge will last for longer in one type of Canon inkjet printer compared to another. Also, the page yield is based on a 5% coverage of each A4 page, which is about 5 lines of text.

  • Do you do gold ink cartridges (ie. not yellow) for the Pixma iP3600 printer?

    Gold ink for Canon iP3600

    No, unfortunately gold cartridges are not standard consumables for the Canon Pixma iP3600 printer. You may need to find a specialist supplier for this type of ink.

Canon Pixma iP3600 Printer Review

Expert review of the Canon Pixma iP3600 printer

Our Verdict:

Affordable, functional and reliable, the Canon Pixma iP3600 is a great choice for a home that needs a single-function, quality printer. It may lack the extra functions of an all-in-one, but is perfectly adequate for those who already have a fax or a copier, and those who don't do as much scanning. It boasts decent print speeds of up to 26ppm in black and 17ppm in colour (draft mode). The Canon Pixma iP3600 produces crisp text and detailed colour graphics and photos, though the machine can be a little sluggish when starting up. It is also noisy.


The Canon Pixma iP3600 takes up a larger footprint than an iP2702, especially with the front output tray attached. It features the same mechanical design, with a flip-up paper feed on top. The high-gloss black finish with a silver strip right across the front is stylish, and the control buttons on the right front side (still set with indicator LEDs) makes it ergonomic. The top button is for power, and the one below it is for feeding paper or cancelling prints. The USB socket along with the power port is at the rear for concealed connection.


Hardware installation for the Canon Pixma iP3600 is pretty simple, and it has the economical advantage of 5 separate ink cartridges, bringing down running costs bit lower than its competitors. The software bundle includes a driver for the latest Windows and Mac operating systems. The Canon Pixma iP3600 also comes with Easy-PhotoPrint EX, an easy to use software for basic photo editing. Photo print quality is excellent (smooth gradations and good detail) and simulates natural-looking colours.


The noisy mechanical paper feed of the Canon Pixma iP3600 can be quite annoying, and black text sometimes shows ink spikes (ink bleeds along paper fibres), though this can be caused by poor paper quality. The printer does have a PictBridge socket. We wish it had Wi-Fi.
