Firmware updates on your printer, just like your phone, can fix technical bugs with your device that help improve performance and keeps the machine`s programs running as smoothly as possible.

The Canon IJ printer driver (simply called printer driver below) is software that you install onto your computer so that it can communicate with the printer.
In short, no! Printers need specific cartridges to work, which is why we have clear listings across the website for what ink works in any printer. You cannot just use any model/brand cartridge in a printer, even if they look the same.
With the device switched on navigate to the `set up` menu then select `Wireless LAN set up`. Then choose your wireless access point or wireless router from the list, enter your password then press `end set up`. One the flashing blue wireless light goes solid blue, you`re connected.
The easiest way to connect the Canon printer to the computer is via a USB cable. It`s the traditional method of connecting devices. One end of the USB remains connected to the printer, and the other must be connected to the computer`s USB port.
