Needed replacing after a couple of months,
This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG3250 All-in-One Colour Printer (Print, Scan, Copy, Wi-Fi and Auto Duplex) (Accessory)
A very bad experience. Had this printer a few months and not done much printing. It is very flimsy compared to the last printer I had ( a hp photosmart). It was also exceptionally noisy to start up and also in operation. It is also very slow to start up and to print.
My main gripe though, is that I kept getting false error messages about the paper tray being empty when it was not, which meant I couldn't print at all. After the colour ink got used up, I had it running on just black ink but it only lasted a couple of print jobs before I started to get these paper out error messages and it would not print at all. Then one day, it randomly printed a couple of pages again but then stalled again saying the black ink was low, while also giving the error message about being out of paper.
I deliberated on whether to pay out for more ink to see if that was an issue, or just to just go ahead and get a new printer. Well, I purchased new ink and it printed a page and then went back to error message (same paper in tray from moments ago.) Couldn't find any help anywhere. Image garden the software it comes with is awful and makes scanning so tedious. Basically wasn't enjoying the printer at all and it had ground to a complete halt, so had to purchase a new one. I have gone back to Hp printer as my last one was pretty good. Quicker, quieter and more functional and intuitive. (I'm sure it will end up with issues as all printers seem to but it seems better for now).
