This Canon PG-540 Black Ink Cartridge is quoted as doing up to 180 pages before needing to be replaced.
The page yield is calculated by manufacturers using ISO/IEC 24711 standards, where they print set documents of 5% page coverage until the cartridge is empty. The standard means you can compare yields between cartridges and manufacturers.
This is the genuine, standard capacity, Canon PG-540 Black Ink Cartridge. Genuine means this ink cartridge has been made and filled by the manufacturer of your printer. Providing a page yield of up to 180 prints, this cartridge contains around 8ml of ink.
The Canon PG-540 cartridge is part of the Chromalife 100 'Fine Colour' ink technology, which has enjoyed significant investment from Canon to provide amazing print quality on any type of paper.
Changing the ink cartridges is also just as straight forward, open the front cover of the print to begin and also the small cover on the right if it doesn't open automatically. Once the cartridges stop still you can remove the cartridges by pushing down the grey clips on the front and then pulling them out. The new cartridges can then put installed into their places and the grey clips can be pushed back up to lock them into place. This original 540 ink will work happily alongside any other refilled or original 540 and 541 inks.
This PG-540 black ink cartridge can be used along with any other original or refilled 541 ink cartridges.
