Frequently Asked Questions
If my computer isn't wireless, would this printer work?
Yes. You always have the option to connect to your computer with a usb cable. Unfortunately, the printers don't come with the cables. U will need buy a "Usb printer cables".
Can you purchase black ink separately? I do mostly all document printing and very little color.
Yes. However, please be aware that ALL of the ink tank slots MUST be populated for the printer to print...so you can't JUST have black ink alone and expect to use the printer. Also, as it says on the Canon website, "Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when black-and-white printing is specified."
You can purchase any or all replacement ink color cartridges individually OR you can purchase "packages" with all of the individual colors included. You can mix and match as you see fit.
Can you use it as a copier?
Yes, it's an all in one.
