The MX885 is more than just a capable all-in-one inkjet printer. It includes advanced features like an automatic document feeder and duplexing to give users the full office machine they’ve been looking for. With both wired and wireless networking support, it can be easily shared, and its print speed is solid, at around 12.5 pages per minute.
Start with the printer powered on, with the front tray lowered. Lift up the top cover from inside the paper tray opening, and the cartridges will move to the center in a few seconds.
Find the PIXMA MX885 ink cartridge you need to replace, then press backward on the plastic lever until you feel it rotate upward. Grasp the cartridge and raise it out of the opening.
Get your replacement Canon MX885 cartridge ready for installation by taking it out of the box and removing it from the plastic bag. Then lift and pull the protective tape strip at the top to remove it. Right before you install the cartridge, pry its small handle away from the orange protector to remove that as well.
Insert the MX885 cartridge at a downward angle into the printer’s opening, and press on the top until it clicks fully into place. Lower the top of the printer down to finish the installation.
You are now ready to resume printing with your Canon PIXMA MX885 printer.
