Canon PIXMA MP628

The printer game has transformed. Makers have actually stuffed whatever consisting of photo-quality printing into their all-in-ones and everybody wants one. The only point they can't stuff right into their all-in-ones are the large 13x19 printers. The tiny 4x6 picture printer has been swallowed up in addition to that old flatbed scanner in today's multifunction device. However, the video game has actually changed in an additional regard, too. Unlike either those 4x6 or 13x19 photo printers, the all-in-one has wings to extend, not just a USB port. Recent designs from Canon, Kodak and also HP all consist of wireless connection. That consists of Bluetooth (which is just a way to print cam phone images, actually) however goes as far as WiFi. These manufacturers figured out that if they could get a WiFi multifunction printer into your residence, they'll have the ability to market a great deal much more paper and also ink. Every computer in your home will certainly be utilizing the same printer.

Attributes With Canon's ChromaLife100 ink system, Canon photo documents and also one-picoliter bead SMALL PRINT head technology, photos published on the MP620 are rated approximately 300 years historical storage. The brand-new Auto-Scan feature detects the type of original you're scanning-- an image, calling card, individual notepad or form-- after that instantly scans as well as conserves the picture with the proper settings.The 2.5-inch LCD previews images on memory cards placed in the printer's visitor and the control panel include an Easy Scroll Wheel surrounded by a four-way navigator to see what you have actually obtained. An ordinary paper tray with an ability of 150 sheet rests under the printer and also a picture paper tray is readily available on the back. The image tray at the rear of the printer extends to fit large sheets. The resulting tray opens immediately (really useful if you're not in the space). The MP620 starts up very promptly (it's virtually immediate compared to other printers). And you can incorporate four or more web pages for output on one to save paper.

Rather than a poster, you get a booklet. And the pamphlet, which needs missing around a lot, is accompanied by another booklet for repairing. And, yes, we required both. The booklet is a little baffled. It believes it's a poster, depending on big characters to determine each area you are expected to head to. In little parentheses, though, you obtain the real page number. Nevertheless, it's a publication, not a poster. You require the web page numbers. The 2nd point that concerned us right from the box was the ink cartridges. Oh, they coincide as all the various other Canon ChromaLife100 ink cartridges. There's just less of them. There's a large black pigment cartridge for text and to print pictures, there are little black, cyan, magenta and also yellow dye cartridges. Simply 4 inks for images. On the other hand, that could save you some pennies.

One point that will most definitely conserve you some dimes is the included USB cord. Hurray for Canon. Even if you prepare to link this wirelessly, you require a USB cable television for the setup. And also Canon has the grace to offer one. We just weren't specifically stunned that transparency scanning was not consisted of in the MP620 but we were shocked that duplex printing had not been. That was the 3rd thing. Canon's PIXMA printers have actually been duplex printers, making use of both sides of the sheet. However obviously in an effort to maintain prices down, that's no longer the situation. It's not that Canon has actually abandoned these features, though. For concerning two times as much, the PIXMA MP970 includes openness scanning, a high-fidelity ink collection and also duplex printing. It likewise has a larger LCD present but does not have Wi-fi (although it does have Ethernet). The MP980 series maintains WiFi while adding film scanning. It likewise includes a gray cartridge to the basic CMYK mix. So you have much more alternatives, that's all.

Consequently, they have actually paid lots of focus on printing to these boxes but little else. Kodak's firmware troubles are epic yet none of these boxes is blemish complimentary. Kodak could have remarkable printing technology including mini pigment printing. HP may have the most functional device on the marketplace. But Canon appears, once more, to have actually delivered the item we like. We always love opening a Canon printer box (and also we have an unboxing the MP620 gallery to show it). However right from the box, 3 things worried us regarding the MP620. The first was no setup poster. We've applauded Canon for their excellent installation posters in the past as well as we were disappointed not to find one exactly on top of every little thing else in the box. Rather there was an errata page for the Macintosh install. So the individuals packing packages are still doing their job.

Canon PIXMA MP628 Maintenance

Inkjet machines have a reputation for being temperamental, but a few simple procedures can just about eliminate the problems. For any inkjet:
  1. Do not use a power strip to control the printer, use the printer's own Power button. The printer button, unlike the power strip button, initiates a shutdown procedure that parks the print head where it won't dry out.
  2. Use it. Letting the printer sit for weeks between uses will degrade the print head. Print something every week. If you've let the printer sit as long as a month, you may have to run the print head cleaning maintenance utility to flush the print head out. Which just dumps ink through the head, so you might as well print something every now and then.
  3. By following those two simple procedures, you can eliminate many print quality problems and printer performance issue. If you do discover a problem, Canon's printer utility provides commands to check the nozzle pattern, flush the print head, do the deep cleaning of the print head and realign the print head.
  4. Our experience with the MP620 was remarkably trouble-free. It became our everyday printer but we don't print every day. The cartridges lasted a long time and we didn't experience any clogs or print defects we could attribute to maintenance issues. Canons and HPs, which tend to use dye inks, tend to clog less than Epson's, which rely on larger pigment inks. But the same rules apply. Kodaks use pigment inks but they are ground much finer than Epson inks, so less frequent use doesn't clog them as quickly.
  5. All-in-ones have a couple of other cleaning requirements often overlooked. The first is to clean the glass. Fingerprints, smudges, hair and dust can all degrade a scanned image. Use a glass cleaner sprayed onto a cloth to avoid any chance the liquid will seep under the glass and into the scanner.
  6. At the same time, gently clean the document cover (the white lid backing), which can pick up all kinds of dirt from the glass and the backs of the items you've been scanning. Use mild soap and water to clean the backing gently without scrubbing.
  7. Exterior cleaning is becoming a real specialty with all the high-gloss surfaces. Canon warns against using "tissue paper, paper towels, rough-textured cloth, or similar materials for cleaning so as not to scratch the surface. Paper tissue powder or fine threads may remain inside the machine and cause problems such as Print Head blockage and poor printing results. Be sure to use a soft cloth."
  8. Canon also recommends cleaning the bottom plate by folding a piece of letter-size paper in half width-wise and running it through the printer from the rear tray until the fold is not smudged with ink.
  9. We didn't need to perform any of this extended maintenance.
Canon PIXMA MP628 Installations
  1. We try not to make much of this, but in the case of printer installations, a little full disclosure goes a long way. We work on a Mac, occasionally testing products on a Windows machine. This usually isn't an issue for reviews, but when you get too sophisticated tricks like wireless scanning, it bears mentioning that our installation was on Mac OS 10.4. Windows XP and especially Vista mileage will vary. Which is why we work on a Mac.
  2. Installing the MP620 took about an hour. It's a slightly more involved process than some multifunction devices because of the wireless setup. But its wireless setup isn't really much more involved than other wireless devices. A little, yes, but not much more.
  3. We managed to make it trying, however.
  4. Pulling all the tape off wasn't too bad. And connecting the power cable was no issue. Canon does not require a brick adapter, fortunately. It's just a long power cable.
  5. Our first trial came when we calibrated the printer, a process Canon recommends if you're going to print photos. It took three sheets. And we had to visually inspect each one, using the control panel to tell the printer which bar had the least lines in it.
  6. Why couldn't the scanner show the page to the printer for it to evaluate? And all on one page? That's how HP does it. Kodak manages to do it during printing, somehow. But Canon's calibration, at least on the MP620, is stone age stuff.
  7. We wanted to print wirelessly to the MP620, so that setup was the next trick. Via the control panel, you tell the printer to communicate wirelessly (it can't do both at the same time), then you install the software on a computer.
  8. Installation on the computer was quick and easy but required a restart. On the restart, it automatically runs the wireless setup program. But you do have to connect the printer to your computer via USB to proceed or the software won't be able to find the printer.
  9. Watch out, there are all kinds of little tricks like this.
  10. Once it found the printer, it displayed all our neighborhood networks and we selected the one we wanted, which was ours, of course. We entered our password and after a minute or two, the cabled printer was set up for wireless communication. The setup program told us to turn off the computer, disconnect the USB cable, move the printer to its working location and turn it on again to test the wireless connection strength.
  11. And it did that for about two minutes, reporting a good connection (nearly all bars is good). So we were good to go (we thought).
  12. Except the point of having a wireless device is being able to access it from multiple computers. So how do you install the drivers on a second computer?
  13. It wasn't as hard as we thought. We just chose a manual installation on the install CD instead of the Easy Install option. We skipped the documentation and the network application that sets up the printer but checked everything else.
  14. When we restarted we had to manually Add the printer after using the Canon network browser to find it but that's all it took.
  15. We had to do that to our first machine, too, we found out when we tried to actually print something and the printer could not be found. The installation had activated the USB printer (naturally), not the WiFi printer. The WiFi printer has a lot of gobbledygook in parentheses after the printer name. It's actually the MAC address of the unit. That's the one you want to add when you're ready to print wirelessly.
  16. Dramatic pause. There's more to this story below.
WiFi Scanning. We hadn't expected the MP620 to do WiFi scanning so once we had printed to it wirelessly, we thought we were done with the setup. Not so. Here's the rest of the installation story.

We were actually confused about the MP620's capabilities on this score. Although it appears it can do wireless scanning (from the Solution Menu if nowhere else), the software told us (repeatedly) that the scanner couldn't be found on the network. Since we'd already been able to print to it, we remained puzzled until we did a restart one day (we rarely restart OS X) and miraculously an icon for the Canon IJ Network Scanning Utility showed up on our menu bar.

We had to locate the scanner in that utility and then tell Solution Menu about it (it has both the USB and MAC address personalities available). No driver was installed for Photoshop, so we just used Solution Menu to scan. There's a perk to that method, it turns out. You can direct the scanner to compress data it transmits over the network, so the scan happens pretty quickly.
