# # # ONLY 1 DAY LEFT, TESCO VOUCHER ENDS SUN 5th JULY # # #

First post so please be gentle...

Order an iP4600 printer online and collect free in-store from Tesco, or just pay +£5 for delivery:
http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.204-4117.aspx

Not as good as the older iP4500, but still a great printer! A lot of printer for just over £50!

The Tesco £15-off eVoucher ends 5th July 2009 so get cracking!

Canon cash-back claims must be submitted by 31st July for printers purchased before 13th July.

How to get it:

- direct.tesco.com -> search for ip4600 or catalogue number 204-4117 = £88.06
- add to basket and continue to Checkout
- you must provide your delivery address even for collection orders
- proceed then click Collect from store, then Select Store
- TOTAL DELIVERY CHARGE should now be shown as FREE (or +£5 if you want it delivered)
- save details and continue, then select "use coupons/vouchers" button
- enter £15-off voucher code TD-JKYR (direct.tesco.com/p/inc/specials/moneysavingecoupons)
- Total remaining should now be shown as £73.06. You pay this amount.
- complete the Checkout

Collect the printer a few days later then claim back £20 from Canon (http://www.canon.co.uk/pixmacashback).


Total paid after Tesco eVoucher and Canon cash-back = £53.06. Nice :-)


Using Quidco or similar should bring this price down even more (thanks for the hint terminus).

Plus there is Double Tesco Clubcard Points on all direct orders until 5th July. So for this deal you get 176 points (£88 x 2). Because every little helps :-)

( Check post #19 for Canon MP620 deals if you want a wireless multifunction printer )

Be happy.

Fantastic, worth every penny, I have an older Pixma IP4200 and more thna happy with it, add a CISS to this printer and you have a very cheap printing solution that will print on paper and cd/dvd printables.

Review here http://www.pcpro.co.uk/reviews/230157/canon-pixma-ip4600.html

I have had my old IP4200 for 3 years now, printing continuously for the past year with a CISS solution and its still going strong, I swear by Canons.

I maybe very unlucky but I've had 3 Canon printers in the last few years and without fail everyone has been complete rubbish, poor output, head failure and all of them within a few months started printing fine spider wed like lines over everything...

Head fails - Paper Jams - poor output and lines - sounds like my old HP :thumbsup: - I hope you're deadfully unlucky 'cos I've just swapped to Canon :? (So far it's great; it is a base model mp190 - cost around £23 with cashback; far better print quality than the HP even when that was new - but not so good scanner)

Perhaps I have been lucky, but I always had head clogging problem with Epson printers! Canons software maintenance system seems to be very good for any print alignment issues as well as print head cleaning (at the expense of ink waste) but if you print regularly and fit a CISS I personally cannot fault the quality or the cost, add in the fact they also do CD/DVD printing I find Canons to be top notch, especially the PIXMA IP 4000 range has had consistently good reviews

I find in general that all in one printers/scanners are not as good as buying the units seperately there is always a compromise of quality, whether it be scan quality or print quality (they usually combine and have one colour cartridge instead of seperate Cyan Magenta Yellow cartridges) Good thing about the Pixma IP4000 range is they have all had seperate C M Y as well as 2 Blacks (one for photo and one for text)

The last one I had was a PIXMA IP 4000, head went in about 6 months, new head lasted half as long. Couldn't print anything other than drafts as it would put those fine lines over everything no matter what setting it was on.

Took it to the tip.

Have used Epsons ever since, not a problem. . . . Must be pot luck. . . .

Certainly from past experiences with any printer, regular use helps against any head cloggings, also ink quality...I have been using a CISS install now in my IP4200 for over a year and only just two weeks ago have had to buy new ink bottles to refill..after equilibrium of the ink and a few head clean cycles and its printing as good as it ever has done!

How cheap is the ink for this? I've seen a few on ebay (10 cartridges for £14.99) without the chip suggesting you glue the original chip onto the compatible cartridge. Has anyone got any experience of doing this?

Yes, I have at least with the previous IP4000 series there is now a chip resetter, originally you had to take the risk of gluing the chips from the original cartridges (no glue really necessary, double sided tape is fine) but the printer then knows from the chip that new cartridges are not used and updates the firmware so that ink level monitoring is cancelled (a contentious thing to do legally I am sure..but Canon do do it)

After using compatibles doing this a couple of times, I decided instead as my ink monitor was obviously no longer working to go the Continuous ink system route (CISS) and after installing I can clearly see the ink levels having an external ink tank.

Seems like the IP4600 now has a new chip (Canon combatting the third party hack on the previous printers)

http://forums.steves-digicams.com/photo-inkjet/149518-canon-ip4600-refil-problem.html

So its a cat and mouse game, like until there were chip resetters for Canons upto IP4500 currently the only way to use third party is to forego the ink counter in a permanent firmware upgrade to the unit (Canon asks you this when using third party with the chips from the originals if you want to continue, accepting then upgrades the firmware...no turning back)

For anyone considering doing what I did on my IP4200 (I was in the same boat, at that time no chip resetter was available) its no big deal anyway...just simply install a CISS, its far cheaper than third party even, and Ink monitoring is staring you in the face visibly.

Heres a tutorial on it on youtube

In Hotukdeals a month or so ago someone mentioned ink.co.uk, so I will be trying them when I need new inks. They have iP4600 carts with and without the chips, and also in bottles if you that way inclined.

By the way, there are edible inks available for use with this printer, for printing on edible paper, of course.

You're right - but you can't beat the convenience of everything in one. I couldn't resist the mp190 - it was cheaper than a replacement colour cartridge for my old HP and it's own replacemnts aren't too badly priced :thumbsup:

If you are interested in the MP620 it gets £30 cash-back from Canon:

oyyy.co.uk (deal found in Hotukdeals, thanks mudds)
£110.99 with free delivery
-£30 Canon cash-back = £80.99___

Which is not bad for a Wireless/USB/Ethernet multifunction printer/scanner. Alternative sites include:

pixmania.co.uk
£99.00 + £12.70 delivery = £111.70
-£30 Canon cash-back = £81.70___

amazon.co.uk
£112.80 with free delivery
-£30 Canon cash-back = £82.80___


There is a £73.99 deal for MP620 in Hotukdeals (thanks bear7364) from Cdiscount.co.uk (using voucher, free delivery, and Canon cash-back)... but Cdiscount have been out of stock for a while now...

We have an ip5300. I can't praise it enough. My wife bought it with her DSA 3 years ago, and it has performed faultlessly. The consumables are expensive, though, and I don't know how easy it would be to transfer the chips, as they are absolutely tiny. You'd need very steady hands.

I bought compatibles for my IP4300 from ink.co.uk. Dirt cheap and I grabbed a couple of sata and ethernet cables while I was there. If you have a LIDL nearby, then they do compatibles for the entire IP4xxx range, including this new model, at £2.99 a pop and containing a chip, so no faffing about with that needed.

If your print head clogs up (due to infrequent use) it is worth removing the print head and cleaning it with isopropyl but not rubbing alcohol. You could try window cleaner, but these have a small amount of detergents mixed in, which could cause smearing. If you don't want to try that, ink.co.uk sells a cleaning cartridge which you could try, instead of wasting ink.

Got my new iP4600 and used it to print the Canon cashback claim form :-)
#23
just got an ip5200 but wanted the wireless printer, made a mistake and mistook it for teh ip5200r. it's still a good printer right? thought i might sell it on and get a wireless version instead if possible.
#24
Great printer but I have regretted not getting the older iP4500. Have gone through a set of inks on my iP4600 already, wow that was fast.

Tried a set of self-refill type carts and they did not work, sent them back for a refund. Anyone have better success with iP4600 carts (the self refill type)?

Also the service menu is not available on the iP4600 like on the iP4500's. Damn :?
