Hacking Canon Pixma Printers to run Doom Game!

You might have heard in the news last month of the leaked selfie pictures from some high profile celebrity’s iCloud account, where their account was hacked and the photos stored in their iCloud account was publicised. Imagine that, all your private pictures and videos being shown the whole world! Can you believe that anything can be hacked, even Printers!! Well you may ask what can you achieve by hacking a printer?

First of well what is a hacker? A hacker is basically someone who finds a way to find some weaknesses in a computer system and do what they want with it. For example you can say that jailbreaking your iPhone device is like hacking your phone as you are exploiting Apple’s weaknesses. In the same way, a hacker recently hacked a Canon Pixma Printer and run the classic game Doom on the printer’s LCD display screen to highlight security vulnerabilities on printers.

Michael Jordon (from Context Information Security) is the man behind running the Doom game on the popular Canon Pixma Printer. The point of this hack was to show us that any computer device can be hacked especially the ones that we least expect to be hacked e.g. Printers, which can be valuable to malicious hackers.

So what if a game can be put on a printer’s LCD display screen, what’s the big deal about that? Well the hacker was just opening our eyes of the security vulnerabilities on technological devices. If a printer can be hacked to run Doom then think about what other nasty things hackers can do to your printer. Hackers can intercept your printing and get hold of your personal data. What if you print some private data and personal photos to your printer and if someone is able to hack into your printer and transmits the printed job to their printer and they have access to it. With things like wireless printers and AirPrint printers this can be possible. You may think that you have sent a print job to your printer (but it’s been transmitted to a hacker’s printer) and because it didn’t print, you click print again without any question. You won’t even know that your printer has been hacked! This should be something what businesses and organisations should be aware of as no-one will suspect printers at their work environment.

If a hacker can change the settings on a printer, the hacker can tell the printer to ask for updates from a malicious server containing all sorts of threats and viruses and the person installing the update to the printer will not be aware of that and just assume that it is coming from the official source. With the malicious update installed into your printer, your printing network is compromised. But remember, as we tell all our customers you should never update your printer and switch of automatic updates. If you update your printer, your printer will only accept original cartridges as the manufacturer will have planted something new on the printer to stop compatible cartridges and remanufactured cartridges from working with your printer.

Canon was good to promise an update to fix the security flaw on their current Pixma range printers and also on all their new Pixma range of products e.g. Canon Pixma MG7550 Printer, Canon Pixma Pro 100 Printer and Canon MX925 Pixma Printer will be updated to have a better security measure to prevent it from being hacked.

Canon Pixma Printers

But even though Canon have just updated this because of the latest security threat to their printers, we at still believe that printer manufacturers like HP, Brother, Dell and Samsung still don’t give enough attention to security on printers as they just ignore it as there has not been a big issue publicised about it. We hope that printer manufacturers do take this ‘Canon Pixma Hack’ seriously and spend more time and money on improving the security on their printers.

Apple Pay, the Wallet in your Smart Phone

On the 9th September Apple introduced three new breakthrough technologies, the Apple iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch. There was a lot of buzz leading up to this live event with speculations and rumours of what the next big thing from Apple will be. We are more interested in the software side rather than the hardware, and in this article we will briefly touch on the new Apple Pay (the wallet on your phone). We at are very excited about this new concept as it will improve the way we shop.

Apple Pay (also referred to as iWallet, iPayment, Apple Payment) will let you pay for goods and services online and at a physical shop by only using your iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the latest Apple Watch. Apple has launched a new category of wearable technology to their portfolio called the Apple Watch which also features Apple Pay. So for example when Apple Pay is launched in the UK and we decide to integrate it to our store, you can pop into the inkntoneruk shop in East Barnet or visit and purchase toner cartridges and ink cartridges by using your Apple device.

To pay for goods using Apple Pay is extremely fast, you can be in and out from a shop in seconds. To pay for goods/services just hold your Apple device to the contactless reader with your finger on the Touch ID to authorise the payment. And that’s it, quick and simple as that. When Apple Pay gets launched worldwide, you can also use it on the iPhone in a similar manner to pay for goods online by using your fingerprint and its ‘One-touch checkout’. No more filling out personal details or billing details and you don’t even have to carry your wallet around.

Apple Pay uses the latest design, touch ID security, and NFC technology to provide a 100% secure and hassle-free online shopping experience as payment happens in a single touch with a device that you will carry with you all times. No need to give your personal details or expose your card and pin number.

Here we have done some mock-ups of how Apple Pay’s ‘One-tocuh checkout’ may look like when you purchase ink cartridges from If we decide to integrate Apple Pay at inkntoneruk in the near future, it will provide you with the perfect shopping experience making it quick and easy to purchase printer cartridges.

Remember how Apple changed the way we print by introducing AirPrint technology on to printers so that we can instantly print from our iPhone and iPad devices. Many more new printers nowadays features Apple’s AirPrint and the new cartridges that we sell at inkntoneruk works with AirPrint, so that your Apple device automatically connects to your printer without setting up any drivers or downloading any software or applications. This makes it easy to print on the go and has changed the way we print without connecting to a laptop or computer. In the same way we believe that Apple Pay will completely change the way we shop in-store and online giving us a better shopping experience overall.

Here is a good diagram that explains how Apple Pay works:

What Type of DVDs Should I Buy?

inkntoneruk dvd

At inkntoneruk we have an extensive range of storage media to choose from. You have a wide variety of choice from CDs and DVDs to BluRay discs from the top leading brands.

With so many different types of DVDs that you can buy, how do you know which one is right for you? It’s easy to be confused as there is a big selection of DVDs that you can choose from inkntoneruk. The following checklist will help you to make a decision on the type of DVDs you need to store your movies and multimedia files in.

DVD Disc Type

At inkntoneruk you may see the following DVD types;
Verbatim DVD+R Discs (43556)
Sony DVD-R Discs (10DMR47SP)
Imation DVD+RW Discs (I19008)
Verbatim DVD-RW Discs (43552)
Panasonic DVD-RAM Discs (LM-AF120LE10)

But what do the +R, -R , +RW, -RW and –RAM after the DVD mean?

When purchasing your blank DVDs you need to check what type of DVDs your DVD player or your DVD burner can take, as all of these disk types are not interchangeable. Depending on your DVD burner, some might just burn DVD-R and DVD+R and not burn DVD-RW and DVD+RW. DVD-R and DVD+R is a onetime DVD recordable format and are commonly used to burn movies and multimedia files.

The ‘-RW’ and ‘+RW’ from DVD-RW and DVD+RW means that the DVDs are rewritable so you can re-use the DVD over again by erasing the content and adding new data to it. DVD-RW and DVD+RW are normally used to save data and make backup copies of your data. DVD-RAM works in a similar manner but with a better advantage that they can be rewritten 100,000 times, 100 times more than DVD-RW and DVD+RW.

DVD Size

At inkntoneruk you may see the following DVD sizes;
Sony 4.7GB DVD-R Discs (50DMR47PP)
TDK 8.5GB DVD+R DL Discs (T19924)

A typical DVD has a storage capacity of 4.7GB. You can also purchase a higher capacity DVD that contains an 8.5GB capacity to accommodate for HD videos and large/lengthy videos. These 8.5GB DVDs are referred to as Dual Layer, Double Layer or simply as DL as it features two recordable layers with each storing less that 4.7GB on each side.

DVD Burning Speed

At inkntoneruk you may see the following DVD speeds;
Sony DVD+R 16X Speed (25DPR47SP)
Verbatim DVD+R 8X Speed (43541)

The higher the burn speed of a DVD that your DVD player can burn the faster you can store your data. At single speed (1X) a DVD recorder writes 1.32 MB of data per second. So you can work out from that how much a 16X or 8X speed will take. 16X speed will write 21.13MB while 8X speed will write 10.57MB of data per seconds. These maximum speeds will only work if your DVD is capable of burning at those high speeds.

DVD Labelling

At inkntoneruk you may see the following DVDs;
Maxell DVD+R Printable (275702.40.TW)
Verbatim DVD+R DL Inkjet Printable (43665)

If you want to make your DVDs look professional and presentable then choose printable DVDs, so you can print customised labels on the face of the DVDs. Certain inkjet printers lets you print directly onto the label face of inkjet printable discs, so you don’t have to use sticky labels on them.

How many pages can I expect from a cartridge?

We get many enquiries from our customers asking us how many pages that they can expect from their ink cartridge before it runs out of ink and won’t print. We also get some customers asking us what does page yield means when we tell them that this toner cartridge has a page yield of 80,000 pages. Have a look at the example below taken from our website which shows the number of pages that a cartridge can print.

Next to the product title we list the number of pages (otherwise known as page yield or sometimes referred to a duty cycle) you can expect to print from your cartridge before it runs out of ink or toner. So for example the Dell 593-10293 can print up to 4,000 pages while the Dell 593-10289 can print up to 9,000 pages before it runs dry because it is a higher capacity version of that toner cartridge. It makes more sense to buy a higher capacity cartridge rather than the standard capacity as you can see from the above extract that you save more money and get more pages out of it. These page yield numbers aren’t made up; they have been given to us directly from the manufacturer of them ink/toner cartridges as enforced by the Office of Fair Trading. The number of page yield has been tested and calculated by the manufacturer at 5% coverage. In other words how many pages their cartridge can print at 5% coverage of a paper before it runs dry. For example the Samsung CLT-K4072S Black Toner Cartridge for the Samsung CLX-3185FW Colour Printer can print up to 1,500 pages at 5% coverage before it runs dry of toner.

On the rare occasions we might list next to the product title the capacity of the ink in ‘millilitres’ instead of the page yield in ‘pages’ as the manufacturer doesn’t have that information to supply to us as it has not been tested yet e.g. Epson 79XL High Capacity Black Ink Cartridge Twin Pack 2 x 41.8ml.

There are many factors that can affect the page yield and you may not be getting the number of pages that you can print as stated. For example the number of texts on the page or the number of images you have will impact the page coverage; therefore you won’t get the page yield that you were expecting to get from the ink cartridge.

If you feel your ink or toner cartridge runs dry quickly because you print a lot of pages, here are some tips to help you save you money.

1. Buy compatible ink or toner cartridges as they last longer than the originals and give you more page yield as they are filled up with more ink. Manufacturers don’t fill up the cartridge tank to the maximum capacity on their branded original cartridges as the manufacturer wants the ink to run out quick so you can buy more from them. At inkntoneruk, in some cartridges where a budget or premium compatible is offered we state that the compatibles give you a higher page yield than the originals as they do last longer.

2. Re-fill your ink cartridges as it’s much cheaper and we also put more ink in the empty cartridges (we fill it right to the top) so that you get more pages out of it than stated.

3. Buy high capacity (XL) or extra high capacity (XXL) versions of the cartridges as they provide you with a much better page yield and they are great way of saving more money when you print a lot.

4. Don’t throw away your toner cartridge when it is running low and you get alerted that your toner needs replacing. Get the maximum usage of your toner cartridge by giving it a good shake so that the toner particles spread evenly inside. Once you’ve done this one or two time and it’s not printing properly then you know that the cartridge is empty and needs replacing.

We hope this clarifies things and helps you to understand more about page yields. If you do have any further questions or would like to comment on this post, feel free to comment below or on our twitter, facebook or google+ pages.

Interesting Facts about Printers

You must now be familiar with ink cartridges and the different type of cartridges you can buy like compatible toner cartridges or re-manufactured ink cartridges for your printer but how well is your knowledge of printers? Here are some interesting facts about printers that you may not know about.

1. Did you know that the laser printer was invented by a woman, according to some websites? But there is no truth to that as laser printers was invented by Gary Starkweather in 1969 who worked at Xerox. So we can say that the Xerox printer was the first ever laser printer in the market. Well done Xerox for being the first.

2. Did you know that the inkjet cartridge that you receive free when you purchase a printer is only half filled. But why do large companies like Epson, Canon, and HP do this? There can only be one explanation for this. Firstly companies that make your printer want you to buy ink cartridges from them because they only make money from selling consumable supplies for their printers. They don’t make any profit from selling their printers, they start making money from the inks that you buy from them. And by half filling the ink cartridges means that the ink cartridges runs out quicker and you will end up buying more. It’s a sneaky way for printer manufacturers to get you to buy more ink cartridges. It only costs them about 10p more to fill the ink cartridge to its maximum capacity. It’s appalling that the printer manufacturers do this. At inkntoneruk, we are the opposite as we fill the empty ink cartridges to its maximum capacity so that they hold more ink that the original cartridges and lasts longer in your printer. We can also supply you with compatible ink cartridges so you won’t have to send us your empty cartridges to us to be refilled, we will just provide you with a remanufactured inkjet cartridge.

3. Laser printers are hot. When you are using a printer the fuser unit in the laser printer can reach up to a massive 204 degrees Celsius! Now that’s hot, so glad there is a thick casing around the printer. The fuser unit is what produces the heat and fuses the toner particles on to the paper.

4. We all buy ink cartridges to print on paper. Did you know that you can buy special ink cartridges to be used with special printers that are edible. Imagine printing something that you can eat. Yummy!

5. If your old printer has had its days and is broken and knackered, dispose of it correctly my taking it to a skip. Don’t go crazy and start smashing it up into pieces. Here is a video of how not to dispose of a printer. Be sensible like the printer company Brother where recycling is important to them as they recycle millions of toner cartridges each year to protect enough trees for Koala bears in Australia.
