Canon Pixma TR4520 series printer driver

The Canon Pixma TR4520 is a compact, all-in-one printer that is popular among home users and small businesses. It offers a range of features including printing, scanning, copying and faxing, making it a versatile choice for those who need a single device to handle multiple tasks.

Many users appreciate the TR4520's affordability, as well as its ease of use. The user interface is straightforward and simple to navigate, and the printer's compact size makes it a good fit for small spaces. The print quality is generally good, with sharp text and vivid colors, although some users have reported issues with color accuracy. The automatic document feeder (ADF) is another plus, as it makes it easy to scan, copy or fax multi-page documents.

On the downside, some users have reported connectivity issues with the TR4520, particularly with regards to Wi-Fi. Some have also noted that the paper handling is somewhat limited, with no automatic duplex printing (double-sided printing) and a small paper tray capacity. Additionally, the TR4520 can be slow when it comes to printing photos, and some users have reported issues with the print head clogging.

Canon Pixma TR4520 ink cartridges

The Canon Pixma TR4520 uses two ink cartridges:

PG-245 or PG-245XL (Black): This is the standard black ink cartridge. The PG-245XL is the high-capacity version, which contains more ink and allows for a greater number of prints compared to the standard PG-245.

CL-246 or CL-246XL (Tri-color): This cartridge contains cyan, magenta, and yellow inks. Like the black cartridge, the CL-246XL is the high-capacity version, providing more ink and a higher page yield than the standard CL-246.

The XL versions of the cartridges can be more cost-effective in the long run as they provide a higher yield, which means you'll need to replace them less frequently.

To replace the ink cartridges in your Canon Pixma TR4520:

  1. Ensure the printer is turned on.
  2. Open the front cover, and then open the paper output tray.
  3. Gently open the ink cartridge cover by pressing down the small lever on the right side.
  4. The cartridge holder will move to the replacement position.
  5. To remove an old cartridge, push down on the ink cartridge until it clicks, and then pull it out.
  6. Unpack the new cartridge and remove any protective tape or materials.
  7. Insert the new cartridge into the empty slot and gently push up until it clicks into place. Make sure the black cartridge goes into the black slot (marked with a black square), and the tri-color cartridge goes into the color slot (marked with a color triangle).
  8. Close the ink cartridge cover, followed by the front cover and paper output tray.

Your printer will recognize the new cartridge and prepare it for use. It may take a few moments for the printer to complete the process. For more information or troubleshooting, consult your printer's user manual or the Canon support website.
