Q & As


Canon Pixma MG4250 All-In-One Wireless Printer 4.3 5 44 44
Useless software Printer going back as it will not print reliably from iPad and the software will not reload. Instructions unclear. Even help from tech minded daughter hasn't sorted the issues. 17 August 2014
Canon Pixma MG4250 Great price, great printer - well worth considering 13 August 2014
A little gem Such quality in a little package does everything you could ask,best printer I have had..,such a reasonable price. 12 August 2014
Printer Very easy to set up on BTinfinity. Prints well. Haven't yet been able to gauge the cost of ink 05 August 2014
Limited use The printer is smart, compact and lightweight. But, set up was time consuming. Printing was limited as ink has needed constant replacement and will not print on only one cartridge. Both cartridges have to be replaced which is not economical. As a result I no longer use the printer and considering return. 30 July 2014
Needed technical help with setup. The printer is a very good buy but I needed technical help from Canon to set it up. John Lewis were unable to help me but did give me all the necessary information regarding Canon Support. I previously had a PIXMA 4000 which just plugged in and worked straight away. This printer is better for pictures and photos and the scanner is excellent too. 29 July 2014
sedate very good but a little slow on start up. Ideal for pensioners! 24 July 2014
Canon Pixma MG4250 Printer This printer is fairly compact, and has a decent enough print quality, but the operating system could definitely be improved. The set-up instructions are pretty poor, as they omit one very important feature, which is that if you want the printer to connect wirelessly to your computer (via your internet router) you have to hold down a button on the router, NOT on the printer. I spent half an hour looking all over the printer itself, before I Googled this printer to see if anyone else had had a similar problem (and many had!). The user manual makes no mention whatsoever of the button location being on the router, and not on the printer Also, the printer doesn't come with a cable to attach printer to computer, if you choose not to connect wirelessly- which is not good for people like me who are very busy and don't have time to figure out where and how to buy such a one! Also, if your internet is down (which happens a lot in my area) that means you cannot print, as you rely on your internet connection for your printer-to-computer connection. I don't like the operating panel, as I don't find it clear enough. I spent quite a while figuring out which buttons operate which actions. Again, the user manual was not clear on this. Overall, this printer is not "dummy friendly'! And neither am I a dummy! I would probably not recommend this printer to anyone, save for the fact that it's cheap. 15 July 2014
