Capable of performing a selection of print, copy, scan and fax functions to a professional standard – the small dimensions and modest appearance of the machine belies a terrific output capacity.

Intelligent, Quick Printing

With Wi-Fi connectivity and an automatic document feeder, the MAXIFY MB2050 is capable of printing 16ppm in mono and 11ppm in full colour. The fast warm-up speed of the printer ensures a first print speed of roughly 8 seconds.

  • I have a Canon MB2050 Maxify. Where is the rear cover as I have a paper jam.

    The rear cover can be found at the back of the printer, this can be taken off to access the rollers inside the printer which can then help to fix the paper jam at the back of the printer. However, if you have any trouble accessing the paper jam, please call the Canon Technical Support Team on 0207 660 0186 and they will be able to help you.

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.
