Most Common FAQs for Canon Pixma MG3250:

Q. What precautions should I take while storing Canon Pixma MG3250 ink cartridges to keep them in reusable condition? Will improper storage of these ink cartridges reduce its shelf life?
It is important to store the ink cartridges in proper conditions to maintain their efficiency:

  • Make sure that you store Canon Pixma ink cartridges in their original packaging until you are ready to use them.
  • Store the cartridges away from direct exposure of sunlight to minimise the risk of damage.
If not stored properly, the cartridge would definitely lose its shelf life. An ink cartridge that is stored properly with its original packaging offers a shelf life of approximately 2 years. And if the cartridge is stored open without its original package its shelf life comes down to 6 months.

Q. I’m looking for compatible Canon Pixma MG3250 ink cartridges for my Canon printer. Do you accept orders only before 2pm?
No, it is not necessary to place your order before 2pm. You can order Canon Pixma MG3250 ink cartridges anytime. Approximately 90% of the orders received before 12 noon daily are despatched the same day (subject to the stock levels).

Q. My Canon Pixma MG3250 printer displays “Error 5B00”. What does this error code mean?
The error message indicates that the waste ink absorber is full. Everytime the printer runs a head cleaning routine, it flushes some ink to keep the print head clean and clear. This ink runs into the waste ink absorber. (The waste ink absorber is usually a large sponge or tank).

Be careful while moving the printer. Though the ink absorber is full, printer leaking is possible when the printer is moved. (You can clean the waste ink absorber but that’s extremely difficult and messy). For the safe side, put the printer in a large bag first while moving.

Q. What is the difference between original Canon Pixma MG3250 ink cartridges and compatibles ones?
A. The difference between original ink cartridges and compatible ink cartridges is that, original ones are made by the printer manufacturing company, whereas compatible ink cartridges are manufactured by a third party company to work with your printer. Also, compatible ink cartridges are cheaper as compared to original ink cartridges.

Q. Can I print directly from my digital camera with a Canon Pixma MG3250 printer?
A. Unfortunately, Canon Pixma MG3250 printers do not come with PictBridge support, thus printing directly from a digital camera is not possible. However, the MG3250 comes with built in Wi-Fi support which enables the user to directly print from their Android or Apple device.

Q. I was printing a few pages with my Canon Pixma MG3250. While printing, one of the pages got jammed in the paper output slot. How can I fix this?
A. Sometimes, while printing, the paper gets jammed. This disrupts the printing process. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

  • Slowly pull the paper out from the output slot.
  • Reload the paper and press the "Resume" button to resume printing.

Q. I am planning to reset my network settings back to factory default. What should i do?
If you want to reset your network settings you can change your access point, to do so follow these instructions below:
