Just buy compatible ink it costs like 6-10 pounds.
I have a MG4250, the ink is £25 - £40. Basically price of a new printer every time. It's crazy.
Wby cant you buy basic printers anymore? I don't want the bulk of scanner copier. Best i ever had was pixma Ip4300 with 5 inks. Nothing like it now.
Good luck! Let us know what you go with!
Can anyone recommend canon TS5050 or MG5750 there are lot of cheap compatibles around?
