The setup process is perhaps the worst of any device I've bought in the last decade.
If you run automatic set up, it can't connect to your wi-fi because it doesn't know the password, and it gives you no way to enter the password. Switching to manual setup, you can try use the keyboard on the printer, however the keyboard does not seem to let you write capital letters which made it impossible to enter our password. As a last resort, it recommends connecting your computer to the printer with a USB cable that is (conveniently) not provided. I'm sure I'll sort everything out once I track down a USB cable, but it shouldn't be this hard. It's like the 90s all over again, not the simple intuitive set up that most of today's products provide.
Update. I was finally able to get this printer operational again within a month of that last update. Since it has continued to work, I am posting this as an update. I have about 1500 prints now and about half of the ink left. I am not sure if all or only part of these steps were necessary. Control Panel > Devices and Printers > Canon g4210 > (Right click to select on printer icon) Printing Preferences > Maintenance (I provided a screenshot of the options)
I end up doing bottom platen cleaning and roller cleaning. For whatever reason the paper pickup and feed seemed to have issues although I saw nothing in the path. This seems to fix that issue. Not sure what caused it to start with. Also, the print was not aligned. The print was very similar to the distortion someone with macular degeneration would see. An alignment fixed that.
For the clogged nozzle, it took a couple of ink flushes. I had tried the less ink intensive cleaning options FIRST.
The ink flushes used a lot of ink!
I am sure I will get the ink waste pad error soon, and this likely will not be a consumer replaceable part. It is working for now. I print on a regular basis. For those who do not, I highly recommend printing at least the nozzle check once a week.
If I can use the printer with the original ink that came with it (two black and one of each color), I will consider it a very good value. If you need to buy refills later to continue to use it, it would be an excellent value. The ink flushes probably will limit its life for me.
Less than 18 months later and only 1200 sheets printed, I now get an error message about a jam. Nothing in the paper path. Each of those pages wound up being very expensive to print. I only used about 1/4 of the ink tanks. I still have the two refill bottles of ink too. I wish companies would be responsible and quit producing garbage that winds up in the land fill with minimal use. This will weigh HEAVILY in my mind before I EVER purchase another product by Canon. The thought of not replacing ink looks attractive, but I never would have had to. This product wasn't even made to last through a set of cartridges maybe two. However, if it does, you will save on ink.
To save our landfills, parts like printheads and ink waste pads should be reasonably priced and easily replaceable by the consumer. This is still an issue.
I have had this printer since May 2018 and many printers over the last thirty years.
• The printer comes with an instruction book with a QR code to watch a video setup for the printer on smartphone or tablet. I recommend a tablet to view it better.
• Instruction book also includes a link to the website to download the setup software (may need to use Airprint for Mac)
• No expensive ink cartridges to replace
• Print heads are user replaceable (price and availability of parts unknown)
• Compatible with MacOS and Windows (I have both)
• Built-in Air Print support. Can print directly from compatible iOS device. No drivers necessary.
• Print, Scan, Copy, and Fax-uses telephone line.
• Ink levels are easy to determine
• iOS app, Canon Print, allows me to scan and print photos and documents. Over Wi-Fi, one is limited to 300 dpi. Works great for documents, but I prefer photos to be scanned at 600 dpi. Other apps are available to add messages or create projects (cards, calendar, collages, posters, etc.)
• Can print borderless photos on Mac and Windows. Hint: Select photo paper. Under size, select borderless.
• The color inks are dye based
• Black ink is pigment
• Rear paper tray
Print heads seem to clog less with dye versus pigment ink. In general, dye ink is not water resistant and colors may not appear as vivid. However, I was impressed with the photos printed. Pigment inks are more water resistant and produce sharper, and more vivid colors.
The rear paper tray has worked well for me. No paper jams. Easy to access. Manual duplex was an option for me.
• LCD screen is small & not as user-friendly as a color touch screen. I recommend using the web-based menu for settings.
• No automatic duplex printing (the rear paper design prevents an optional duplexer)
• No ethernet connection
• This printer does not qualify for the Image Garden premium content (this only comes with the printers that you must buy expensive ink cartridges)
Overall, the Canon g4210 is a good printer. It would have been a 5-star printer if Canon had not cut corners on adding a memory slot, duplex printing (or at least adding that as an optional accessory), touch color LCD, and allowed Image Garden premium content. Over the expected life span (probably two or three sets of ink if one doesn't have to do ink flushes before you’ll get the ink waste pad full message), one will probably save on ink costs. However, an ink waste pad full error will disable printing. Often, this ink pad is not user replaceable and the error message cannot be cleared by the consumer. I will upgrade this review later to 5 stars if I can replace this pad and clear the ink waste pad error as well as replace printheads later when needed.
Photo prints are great (really!) for every day use and can laminated using an inexpensive laminator to be more durable, but I recommend a dedicated photo printer like the Canon Selphy CP 1300 Amazon sells ( I have the older model, CP 900) or having photos printed by a photo lab for archival purposes (remember dye based color ink is not fade or water resistant).
For everyday color printing, you may want to consider a color laser printer. The toner is expensive, but you do not have the same issues with clogging, ink smearing, etc. In general, they are more reliable. It does work for printing photos for cards, documents, etc. A bonus with a laser printer, is that you can use a technique called foiling for cards to creates beautiful cards! It is not the printer I would prefer to print out photos for an album, though.
