Canon Black ink £8.50 instore at Wilko

Found 7th Apr
Was £17. Don't know if it's national but worth checking if you are looking for this particular ink.
I know compatibles are cheaper but my printer won't accept them.

I have just bought a wifi Epson but I will use the Canon for photocopying things. cos it just seems a shame to stop using it completely when it's still working well.
Epson printers are better value, provided that you check before buying, that compatibles will work. Some of the really cheap models on offer recently do not accept compatibles yet. Think security is getting better all the time.

Browse some compatible ink suppliers websites to make sure. Some offer a money back if they will not work.

One golden rule is:

Never Update the Printer or printer software. Always select no if the screen pops up - you have been warned !

Also for some models you must keep the original cartridges even if empty, as they can be part of the install routine. I find quality perfectly good enough, and why pay £30 for originals for a set that can cost as little as £3 for compatibles. Every now and then I have had a problem with certain colours, but at 60p a cartridge it is not a big deal. Can be better to replace all colours together. If you leave a printer unused for a long time, the heads may have to be cleaned four or five times. Also power off at the mains and leaving power off for five minutes can be part of the routine. Good luck !!

Thanks Joggler
Don't know what printer you have, but I'm still using my Canon Pixma MP210 and with refilled cartridges or aftermarket compatibles I have to use a reset button combination for the printer to display ink cartridges as full again.
It is old as hell but printing with it is dirt cheap, so as far as it works I won't be replacing it any time soon!
