When the ink runs low on your Canon PIXMA printer, you can replace the cartridges and recycle the old ones. Many retailers will accept the empty cartridges for a discount. The Canon PIXMA uses PG-40 black ink cartridges and CL-41 colour ink cartridges. Buy ink cartridges from office supply stores and computer equipment retailers. There is no need to call a computer technician when the ink needs replacing. Change the cartridges yourself in minutes at home.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn on the power to your Canon PIXMA printer. Raise the scanner bed to expose the printer cartridge carrier.

  2. 2

    Push down on the cartridge to release it from the carrier. Pull the cartridge straight out.

  3. 3

    Pull the protective tape from the new ink cartridge. Insert the cartridge just slightly at an angle and push it in until it clicks into place.

  4. 4

    Close the scanner bed and wait for the cartridge carrier to return to the resting position.
