Canon Pixma iP2850 Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

In the times where there are multipurpose all-in-ones all around, the Pixma IP2850 comes in as an anomaly. It is a single function device intended to be a printer that does just that, print. The Pixma targets those few home and small office users, which have a very infrequent printing requirement.

The printer comes with a maximum possible resolution of 4800 x 600 dpi with which it produces really good quality prints both monochrome and colour. Being a very basic device, the maximum speed is 8 ppm, which might look slow, but should be enough for really low usage which the printer intends to cater to. The printer comes with a single Canon Pixma iP2850 Ink Cartridges having all 3 inks in one cartridge, which makes refills and replacement a costly option. The costs can be, to some extent, reduced with the use of compatible cartridges which are easily available in the market. The normal cartridges claim up to 180 A4 printouts, and high-yield versions produce up to 300 prints. The high-yield versions can take the costs of operation lower, but as a single cartridge contains all colours, they need to be replaced even if only one colour has finished.

The Pixma IP2850 comes with a small input tray with a capacity of about 60 pages. This also looks low but given the low usage that the printer will be subjected to, it is good enough. The only connectivity option is USB 2.0 at the back of the printer. Other than that there are not many controls or sockets for anything else in this printer.

The printer is exceptionally light at 2.3 kg and looks extremely sleek and stylish. It comes in the choice of just one colour, white with black lettering. With its compact dimensions, it can fit even the smallest of computer tables.

  • Good quality printouts
  • Very compact and lightweight
  • It is noisy to operate
  • Printing can be costly with single Canon Pixma iP2850 Ink Cartridges
  • Slow speeds can be a bit of a bother

Canon Pixma iP2850 is made for the sparing user, and it does its job well. Despite fewer features and lack of connectivity options, it gives really good quality printouts, which are better than some much costlier all in ones also. The ink costs and wasteful replacements can cause the cost of operations to go up a notch. The printer is made for a purpose and that purpose it serves well.

Cartridge requirements

The compatible Canon Pixma iP2850 Ink Cartridges are:

  • Canon PG545XL Ink Cartridge
  • Canon CL546XL Ink Cartridge
What to do in case you receive blurry and uneven printouts from the Canon Pixma printer?

When the print results are blurred or uneven such as the ruled lines are misaligned. This may be because of the small dust that might stick between the contact points, that need to be clean in order to get good printing results. However, if the printouts are still misaligned after performing the print head alignments, we can perform a print head cleaning to see if this will improve the print results. Here are some of the steps listed below to perform a print head cleaning:

When the print results are blurred or uneven

Step1: Print the nozzle check pattern.
Use the online user manual available to refer how to print the nozzle check pattern of your printer.

Step2: Examine the nozzle check pattern.
If there are missing lines or horizontal white streaks in the pattern, you should clean the Canon Pixma iP2850 Ink Cartridges before the warning.

Step3: Clean the printheads of your printer

  • Perform the printhead cleaning procedure
  • After cleaning the printhead, print and examine the nozzle check pattern to check the print results
  • If the problem is not resolved after cleaning the print head twice and the print results are not satisfactory, then go to step4

Step4: Clean the print head deeply.
Perform the print head deep cleaning if the print results are still not satisfactory If the problem is not resolved, turn off the power and clean the print head deeply again after 24 hours. Sometimes deep cleaning improves the print results. If the problem is still not resolved to proceed to step 5.

Step5: Replace a Canon Pixma iP2850 Ink Cartridges.
When print head deep cleaning gives unsatisfactory results then, it might be possible that the cartridges are damaged and we need to replace the ink cartridges with the new one.

Note: If the problem is still not resolved after replacing the Canon Pixma iP2850 Ink Cartridges, contact the service center.
