Compatible Printers with CLI-251XL and PGI-250XL Cartridges (Had Canon MX922 and have tons of ink)


I have bought the MX922 a couple times in a row new, I even bought a used one, they all 3 have died with different error messages, and I have a ton of ink.  I'm trying to find a more reliable printer that won't break as often, has cheap ink, but wanted to find out if there are still no printers in your line-up that are compatible with the MX922's ink cartridges, since I already have a ton.  In early 2021, it said there were none in your current lineup but wanted to see if that is still the same.  Do you have any compatible printers that use MX922's ink cartridges CLI-251XL PGI-255XL and PGI-250XL?

If not, what are some inexpensive printers (up to approx. $200) that have the print, scan, fax abilities and have cheap ink in your current line-up?  We are a low income family so we are looking most for long-term reliability and low cost for ink.



Just go to the Canon eStore site.

I looked and there is a list there, but I'm finding discontinued items.  I've been a loyal Canon customer and would rather cut through the chafe.  Is there a list somewhere that doesn't include discontinued items, or require using your cellphone or Alexa?  It is looking more like I'll just have to start from scratch.

I guess I need to just do a more generic search rather than looking at Canon specifically.

Thank you for your time.

Did you find a printer? I am in the SAME boat. The printhead went out and it is MORE expensive than what I paid. I paid 95$ for the whole Printer and have an entire bin of ink. I found affordable compatible ink and now cannot find a printer that is cheap with compatible ink or one in my budget that also has compatible ink... have you? 

Just because a printer is discontinued doesn’t mean that folks don’t have them and need ink for them.

There was nothing that was not too expensive, so I ended up giving away all the ink. I hope you have better luck.

Take care,
