Canon Pixma MX922 Multifunction Inkjet Printer Review
well hello everybody this is rich Tijeras and I’m coming back at you today with another printer review today we’re taking a look at the canon pixma MX 922 so the Pixma MX 922 has an automatic document feeder editor on the top as where they typically are that’s capable of holding 35 sheets and doing automatic duplex scanning as well as a flatbed here that’s capable of doing basically letter size is yeah a letter sizes the max it can do here it also has right here a tray that you can fold down and insert a special Contrave it comes with it for doing printing directly to see your DVD if you’ve got that printable medium and then below it has a photo paper tray as well as a regular eight-and-a-half by 11 or legal size tray or if you know if you’re in the European nations then it’s a4 or whatever you guys want to call it out there this printer also has wireless capability as well as the direct land capability for your network connections it also connects directly via USB and just down over here it has a USB thumb drive spot slot that you can plug into it doesn’t have any SD card or any other card interface just has the USB card interface it has automated connectivity with your Wireless there so when you’re setting it up initially you just go over to the settings area and select automatic you can just switch the WPS switch on your router and connects all that magical hullabaloo it’s really simple to do it’s also simple to go back into the settings and manually change things of course you’ve got to scroll with the arrow keys to show up over here but you know it’s really simple the MX 922 is a five cartridge system the cartridge is for you Inc our input right through here and this is where you’re also going to be able to change your printhead should you ever need to change your printhead however that’s kind of a tricky process and not something I really want to go into in this review but it’s all available right through here alright so the attachment for your CD DVD printing is right here on the bottom side of your photo paper tray slides on rather or off rather easily however I don’t have any printable CD or dvd media so I will not be demonstrating that at this time so let’s do a test print I’m going to do a test print of just black text and then I’m gonna do a test print of like a brochure and you know it’s gonna have some photo and some text and we’ll just kind of see the process of this thing printing so here we go alright so I sent the print job across and here we are is queuing up so here’s one of the drawbacks of this printer every time you send a print job across almost it cleans the heads even though I just turned it on it takes a considerable amount of time for the head cleaning process to go through something my wife said to me yesterday was that like Lissa she’s going to go shopping and she has this really great coupon for like 20 percent off of something somewhere and she wants to go buy this thing well she got put the coupon off so she comes and turns this on goes to print it but takes a while to print okay all that work just for this sheet of black text it’s about three-quarters of the sheet it’s probably like 200 some words that took like 2 minutes or something how Roni missed it took I’m right up here to clean the heads just to print this now the ridiculous thing is that I spent all day yesterday working on this printer because the magenta stopped working even though I just replaced the cartridges and this image here shows the printhead test that I did at the very beginning of the process followed by the subsequent printhead tests after each cleaning now I had brand new cartridges in here when I started the magenta is almost gone the yellow is almost gone the science you know down a good bit and even though I did all that the printer still wouldn’t print magenta I did a couple deep cleans what I ended up having to do finally was rip the printhead out and use alcohol on it like isopropyl 70 percent alcohol on it with some q-tips now I wouldn’t suggest doing that because if you do something stupid then you’re going to ruin it now this printer originally retailed for about the US if I remember correctly I got it on sale right after Thanksgiving not during Black Friday but the following like Monday or something for about which at the time seemed like a good deal because it was the same price as a replacement setting for another printer that I had and that I wasn’t too in love with that being said and having had this for a couple months now I now know that I should have looked at reviews before I bought this because it wastes so much ink and so much time it’s really infuriating so I’m going to print now a brochure sheet and we’ll see what that kind of looks like as far as the print process goes okay I just sent the job across this time it didn’t require a printhead Queen interesting this is just regular paper basic default settings just to kind of show you the quality here Oh magenta is not working again yay so I’m going to scan this and put it in there in here yeah this is really depressing for me because I’m a huge fan of tannin I’m not really loyal to any one brand like you know for my computers I like my Mac for my printers I’ve always liked Canon but that’s really the only brands I’ve ever I’ve ever been loyal to and you know quite honestly I am so disheartened by this printer because of the way it you wastes the ink quite literally like right now if I turn it off I bet it’s going to go through a cleaning cycle let’s see what happens sounds like a cleaning cycle to me might not be is as vigorous as the one before the prince but can you see where this is a time waster and if you leave it on it’s going to clean the heads more frequently too so you can’t leave it on and leave it in power-save mode because it’ll just jump back on every I don’t know how often but it’ll just jump back on and then waste more eat if the magento were working right now and I were printing a picture which I had I’ve already got a picture that I printed with it before right here this is back when the obviously the magenta wasn’t working the print the picture quality when it’s working is great it’s beautiful but I’ve read online that the head cleaning thing is just there’s no way around it with this MX 922 it’s very very frequent like I said and you just you just waste so much ink and so much time with this going through those cleaning processes that I have to say stay away from this printer if you can find something else for a similar price find something else I mean I’m a huge fan of the multi cartridge ink tanks great this has that but it’s it no I can’t I can’t say I can’t endorse this printer and say you should buy it even if it were like I’d still stay away from because you’re gonna be wasting a ton of money on ink aside from that historically this has been a really great product line but they just kind of did something somewhere and it’s no longer great so basically in closing as far as this printer goes I really really wanted to give it like a great rave review because I’m a huge fan of Canon or I have been up until this point and I’ve owned like the previous series like was a hundred series and it makes a something-something and loved it used it for a couple years three years almost before it finally died on me and I just I really wanted to like this printer I did but I can’t I can’t say that you should buy it because it is a huge time waster just filming this review alone it’s cleaned its heads four times and I’ve only been recording for a total of like 20 minutes with it actually on and even after numerous printhead cleaning cycles regular clean and deep clean the magenta still doesn’t work even after manually removing the click printhead and cleaning the whole printhead with alcohol it printed magenta just fine for like two prints and then all the sudden it got clotted up again so buyer beware do not buy the canon pixma MX 922 if you did you’ll be sorry I will tell you I told you so if you have one and it’s working great for you that’s awesome but the printhead cleaning cycle that it does all the time is a known issue a lot of people complaining about that on the internet there’s no way to get around it there’s no firmware updates there’s no sitting in here that you can trigger it’ll say hey don’t do the cleaning and even if it does apparently for mine it’s not going to do anything good so hopefully this is just a hokey printhead but as far as that other stuff goes like the frequency of printhead cleaning the wasting of the ink the time consuming nature of the printhead cleaning it’s just stay away from it buy it buy something different anyway thank you once again for swinging by to check out this review
