Canon Mega Tank

Introducing the Canon Mega Tank

What’s a Mega Tank? Sounds intriguing doesn’t it 🙂 Well you may not be aware but Canon have a range of ink printers known as the Pixma Mega Tank. These printers use large ink bottle refills rather than ink cartridges for more efficient printing which could be a big cost saving in the long term. Low cost colour printing has arrived.

Yes, that’s right, they are refilled with bottle ink – you simply squeeze the genuine Canon ink into the machine’s tanks – no more ink cartridges!!  Canon has several models of megatank printers available, all with a range of different features.  The printers will be a little more expensive to buy but the running costs are so low, it’s well worth the investment.

I have to say, I have found Canons Technical support brilliant.  Having trouble with one of my printers on a weekend, I sent out an email, not really expecting an answer until the Monday but received one within a couple of hours – and on a weekend too.  The technician was able to confirm for me what I feared – the print head had come to the end of its life.  Did have a good run though, so I can’t complain.

If you have any trouble with your Canon printer the Canon team are ready to help.  They have heaps of helpful links which may answer your question or query.  If not, you can send off an email and even live chat if available.

Canon have dedicated service technicians in every state to have a look at your machine, if it’s not operating properly.  They’ll get to the bottom of the issue for you.

Sometimes your issue can be fixed by using genuine Canon inks and papers.  You be surprised what havoc generic ink cartridges and cheap papers can mess up your printer and cause you no end of trouble.  Cheap paper can cause paper dust which coats the printers paper rollers and also the print head.  Generic ink cartridges may cause damage to the print head if run dry, you’ll burn out the print head.  Do yourself a favour, and make it easier on the technician, use genuine supplies 🙂
