Frequently Asked Questions

I received a dented ink bottle. Can I still use it on my Canon PIXMA G1200?

Yes. The ink contained in the dented bottle can still be used on your PIXMA G1200 without any problem.

What to do when I get blurred or uneven printouts?

When you get printouts that are blurred or uneven, you must print the nozzle check pattern. Then, examine the pattern—if there are missing lines or horizontal white streaks in the pattern, you must clean the printhead.

Up to when can I keep the remaining unused compatible Canon ink bottles in storage?

Our compatible Canon ink bottles can last for 18 to 24 months in storage. Just make sure to store them in an upright position and keep them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
