Some printer manufacturers have different manuals and guidelines in setting up printers and never in one page. Some are available online. But most of the times, we sift through the internet just to find proven fixes to these printer problems and setup guidelines.

  • Thank you!! indeed you added the most practical and simple guide for me. It is very easy to follow the steps in this way for me, and for my old dad. I downloaded the Andriod app and it works perfectly, very friendly to use. Also the quality of the Pixma MG3520 is amazing, the colors, and how fast it prints, and most of all, i like that is not huge, so it fits nicely in my livingroom. Thank you again for this guide, i will definetly be waiting for more post, like tips and tricks kinda stuff, and also, if i get a problem in my printer. Have a nice day everybody!
