Canon PIXMA MP560 Instructional Video Transcript
The Canon PIXMA MP560 is a wireless all-in-one printer with a focus on high-quality photos. It can reach ESAT speeds of up to 9.2 images per minute, and its 9600 dpi maximum output produces very sharp images. The flip-up 2-inch LCD screen is a nice touch that keeps it more compact when not in use.
With the printer on, open the paper tray so that you can access the top cover. Lift up from inside the paper tray, lifting the cover all the way up until it locks into place.
Give the cartridge carrier a moment to move to the center, then pry the plastic lever of the Canon MP560 cartridge away from you to release and lift it out of its slot.
Take the new PIXMA MP560 ink cartridge out of the box and remove the plastic bag. Remove the tape strip from the top of the cartridge, then pry its plastic handle away from the orange protector to remove it.
Align the new MP560 cartridge with the front slightly downward, then press down to click it into place. Lift the top cover up slightly to disengage the prop lever, then you can slowly lower the cover down.
You are now ready to resume printing with your Canon PIXMA MP560 printer.
