1.0 out of 5 stars What is the matter?, 21 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG6250 All-in-One Colour Printer (Print, Copy, Scan Wi-Fi and Auto Duplex) (Accessory)
I purchased this printer to replace a MP610. The printer is useless as it takes up to 2 minutes to start up after switching on or printing from the computer.If as I suspect this is a clean nozzle exercise, the inks will not last long. Has anybody else had this problem? Even to print a second copy takes over 20 secs before printing. I am now on my second printer and the situation is terrible. The grey ink cartridge uses up the ink at a faster rate than others. The black cartridge shows zero usage but the grey over 50% usage. Canon say you cannot exclude the grey ink from the printing process. Why should the grey ink be necessary for B/W printing? Anybody like to buy my printer at a discount.

Same problem and I've never known a printer use up the ink cartridges so fast.
I've tried leaving the printer on all the time, but it still does this wretched long cleaning cycle.

two minutes might be pushing it a bit but it is like watching a kettle boil.
It is cleaning the nozzle I think and that probably explains why the ink is used so quickly.

This is faulty logic. The delay is different, sometimes no cleaning and others several cycles. I agree 2 minutes would not be the norm. Whatever, it is unsatisfactory, and I would not recommend this model to anyone. I am on a replacement machine and its no better, but at least the grey is lasting longer. I spoke too soon.

OK, I don't have that issue with mine. It takes about 50 seconds to fire up and then does a cleaning cycle for about another 30 seconds. If you print 2 pics one after the other (ie 2 separate jobs queued) it still seems to do "something" before printing the second as the heads fly back and forth for a bit before printing starts.

I am on W7 x 64 pro and 2008 R2
