Mounting the Card Slot as the Network Drive
The card slot must be mounted to use it over a network.
To mount the card slot as the network drive, follow the procedure below.
1. Insert a memory card into the card slot of the machine.
2. Start up IJ Network Tool.
3. Select the machine in Printers:.
4. Select Maintenance... on the Settings menu.
5. Click Setup.
6. Specify the drive letter, then click OK.
327
7. Make sure that the card slot is mounted.
When the card slot is mounted, the following icon appears on Computer (or My Computer).
Restrictions on Card Slot Use over a Network
• The card slot can be shared by multiple computers, if the machine is connected to a network. Multiple
computers can read files from a memory card in the card slot at the same time. However, while one
computer is writing a file into a memory card, other computers cannot access the same file.
• If your computer joins a domain, the card slot may not be mounted as the network drive.
• If you use the memory card stored the large size files or many files, a large amount of card access
may be generated. In this case, the operation in the memory card may be impossible or slow. Operate
after the Access lamp of the machine is lit.
• When you access the network drive for the card slot over the network, file names consisting of eight
or less lowercase letters (not including its extension) may be shown in uppercase.
For example, a file name such as "abcdefg.doc" will be "ABCDEFG.DOC", while a name such as
"AbcdeFG.doc" will appear the same.
The file is not actually renamed, but merely appears to be changed.
• When you enable a memory card in the card slot of the machine to be writable only from a USBconnected computer, you cannot access the network drive of the card slot. On the other hand, when
you enable it to be writable only from a LAN-connected computer, the card slot is not detected via
USB. Make sure that the card slot setting is selected properly according to your connection method.
To read files from a memory card via USB and over a network, disable the function to write files to a
memory card from a computer. You cannot write files to a memory card in either way with this setting.
• When you enable a memory card in the card slot of the machine to be writable only from a LANconnected computer, you can write files to a memory card from a computer connected to a network.
Note that it may increase the risk that the data on the memory card is infected by computer viruses or
accessed illegally.
It is recommended to use the access control function of the machine or connect to the Internet via a
router. For information on using a router, contact your Internet service provider or a network device
manufacturer.
• If you write files to a memory card over a network when IJ Network Scanner Selector EX is not
running, the Date Modified of the files may not be proper. Make sure to start up IJ Network Scanner
Selector EX before you write files to a memory card over the network. For details, refer to "IJ Network
Scanner Selector EX Menu and Setting Screen" from the HOME of your product's Online Manual.

Precautions When a Firewall Function is Enabled
• A firewall function may limit communications between a printer and a computer. This may disable
printer setup and communications.
• During the printer setup, you may be prompted to enable or disable communications, depending on
the firewall function of the security software or operation system. If so, choose to enable
communications.
• When using IJ Network Tool, you may be prompted to enable or disable communications, depending
on the firewall function of the security software. If so, choose to enable communications.
• If you cannot set up the printer, temporarily disable the firewall function of the security software or
operation system.
Important
• If you disabled the firewall function, disconnect your network from the Internet.
• Some applications (like the network configuration software) override firewall settings. Check the
application's settings beforehand.
• If the printer you use is set to Get IP address automatically, the IP address changes every time the
printer connects to the network. This may disable printer setup and communications, depending on
the firewall settings. In this case, either change the firewall settings or assign a fixed IP address to the
printer. An IP address can be set using IJ Network Tool.
Changing the Settings in the Wireless LAN Sheet
Changing the Settings in the Wired LAN Sheet
When assigning a fixed IP address to the printer, you will need to specify an IP address with which the

Useful Information about Ink
How is ink used for various purposes other than printing?
Ink may be used for purposes other than printing.
When you use the Canon printer for the first time after you install the bundled ink tanks, the printer
consumes a small amount of ink in the amount to enable printing by filling the nozzles of the Print Head
with ink. For this reason, the number of sheets that can be printed with the first ink tanks is fewer than the
succeeding ink tanks.
The printing costs described in the brochures or websites are based on the consumption data from not the
first ink tank /ink cartridge but the succeeding ink tank /ink cartridge.
Ink is sometimes used to maintain the optimal printing quality.
To keep printer's performance, Canon printer performs cleaning automatically according to its condition.
When the printer performs cleaning, a small amount of ink is consumed. In this case, all colors of ink may
be consumed.
[Cleaning function]
The cleaning function helps the printer to suck air bubbles or ink itself from the nozzle and thus prevents
print quality degradation or nozzle clogging.
Does black-and-white printing use color ink?
Black-and-white printing may use ink other than black ink depending on the type of printing paper or the
settings of the printer driver. So, color ink is consumed even when printing in black-and-white.
Why does the machine have two black ink tanks?
There are two kinds of black ink in the machine: dye ink (BK) and pigment ink (PGBK).
The dye ink is used mainly for printing photos, illustration, etc., and the pigment ink is used for text-based
documents. Each has different purposes so that even if one runs out, another will not be used instead. If
either of them runs out, the ink tank replacement is required.
These two inks are automatically used depending on the type of printing paper or the settings of the
printer driver. You cannot change the usage of these inks yourself.
The ink lamp indicates when ink is running low.
The inside of the ink tank consists of (A) the part where ink is preserved and (B) the sponge with
absorbed ink.
When the ink (A) runs out, the ink lamp flashes slowly to indicate that the ink is running low.
Then, when the ink (B) runs out, the ink lamp flashes fast to indicate that the ink tank needs to be
replaced with a new one.
340
Checking the Ink Status with the Ink Lamps
341
Key Points to Successful Printing
Check the machine status before printing!
• Is the print head OK?
If a print head nozzle is clogged, print will be faint and papers will be wasted. Print the nozzle check
pattern to check the print head.
Maintenance Procedure
• Is the inside of the machine smeared with ink?
After printing large quantities of paper or performing borderless printing, the area where papers go
through may get smeared with ink. Clean the inside of your machine with Bottom Plate Cleaning.
Check how to load the paper correctly!
• Is the paper loaded in the correct orientation?
To load paper in the cassette, load paper WITH THE PRINT SIDE FACING DOWN.
Loading Paper
• Is the paper curled?
The curled paper causes paper jam. Flatten the curled paper, then reload it.
"Load the paper after correcting its curl." in Paper Is Smudged/Printed Surface Is Scratched
342
Be Sure to Check Paper Settings before Printing
Before printing, make paper settings in the operation panel or the computer screen.
There are various types of paper, such as paper with a special surface coating for printing photos at optimal
quality and paper suitable for documents.
Each media type has specific preset settings (how ink is used and sprayed, distance from nozzles, etc.), that
allow you to print to that type with optimal image quality. The wrong paper settings may cause poor printout
color quality or scratches on the printed surface.
If you notice blurring or uneven colors, increase the print quality setting and try printing again.
343
Be Sure to Set Cassette Paper Information after Loading Paper
When you insert a cassette into the machine after loading paper, the screen for setting the type and size of
paper is displayed. Set the cassette paper information according to the type and size of loaded paper.
To prevent incorrect printing, this machine has a function that detects whether the information set for the
paper loaded in the cassette matches the paper settings. Before printing, make paper settings in
accordance with the cassette paper information. When this function is enabled, an error message is
displayed if these settings do not match to prevent incorrect printing. When this error message is displayed,
check and correct the paper settings.
To check cassette paper information, display the paper information screen on the operation panel.
344
Canceling a Print Job
Never press the ON button!
If you press the ON button while printing is in progress, the print data sent from the computer queues in
the machine and you may not be able to continue to print.
Press the Stop button to cancel printing.
345
Key to Enjoying Consistent Printing Quality
The key to printing with the optimal printing quality is to prevent the print head from drying or clogging.
Always observe the following rules for optimal printing quality.
Never unplug the power cord until the power is turned off!
If you press the ON button to turn off the power, the machine caps the print head (nozzles) automatically
to prevent from drying. If you unplug the power cord from the wall outlet before the POWER lamp is
turned off, the print head will not be capped properly and this will cause drying or clogging.
When unplugging the power cord, make sure that the POWER lamp is not lit.
Print periodically!
Just as the tip of a felt pen becomes dry and unusable if it has not been used for a long time, even if it is
capped, the print head too, may become dried or clogged if the machine has not been used for a long
time.
We recommend you to use the machine at least once a month.
Note
• Depending on the type of paper, ink may blur if you trace the printed area with a highlight pen or
paint-stick, or bleed if water or sweat comes in contact with the printed area.
346
Precautions for Safe Transport of the Machine
When relocating the machine, make sure of the following.
Important
• Pack the machine in a sturdy box so that it is placed with its bottom facing down, using sufficient
protective material to ensure safe transport.
• With the print head and ink tank left installed in the machine, press the ON button to turn off the power.
This allows the machine to automatically cap the print head, thus preventing it from drying.
• After packing, do not tilt the box containing the machine or turn it on its side or upside down. Doing so
may cause the ink to leak during transport and cause damage to the machine.
• When a shipping agent is handling transport of the machine, have its box marked "THIS SIDE UP" to
keep the machine with its bottom facing down. Mark also with "FRAGILE" or "HANDLE WITH CARE".
1. Turn the machine off.
2. Confirm that the POWER lamp is off and unplug the power cord.
Important
• Do not unplug the machine while the POWER lamp is lit or flashing, as it may cause malfunction
or damage to the machine, making the machine unable to print.
3. Retract the paper output support, then close the paper output tray.
4. Retract the output tray extension and the paper support, then close the front cover.
5. Unplug the printer cable from the computer and from the machine, then unplug the power
cord from the machine.
6. Use adhesive tape to secure all the covers on the machine to keep them from opening
during transportation. Then pack the machine in the plastic bag.
7. Attach the protective material to the machine when packing the machine in the box.

The procedure for setting the staple side and the margin width is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window
2. Specify the side to be stapled
Check the position of the stapling margin from Stapling Side on the Page Setup tab.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best
staple position. When you want to change the setting, select from the list.
3. Set the margin width
If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the margin width, and then click OK.
366
Note
• The printer automatically reduces the print area depending on the staple position margin.
4. Complete the setup
Click OK on the Page Setup tab.
When you execute print, the data is printed with the specified staple side and margin width.
Important
• Stapling Side and Specify Margin... appear grayed out and are unavailable when:
• Borderless, Tiling/Poster, or Booklet is selected for Page Layout
• Scaled is selected for Page Layout (When Duplex Printing is also selected, only Stapling Side
can be specified.)
367
Execute Borderless Printing
The borderless printing function allows you to print data without any margin by enlarging the data so that it
extends slightly off the paper. In standard printing, margins are created around the document area.
However, in borderless printing function, these margins are not created. When you want to print data such
as a photo without providing any margin around it, set borderless printing.
The procedure for performing borderless printing is as follows:
You can also set borderless printing in Additional Features on the Quick Setup tab.
Setting Borderless Printing
1. Open the printer driver setup window
2. Set borderless printing
Select Borderless from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.
Click OK when the confirmation message appears.
When a message prompting you to change the media type appears, select a media type from the list
and click OK.
3. Check the paper size
368
Check the Page Size list. When you want to change it, select another page size from the list. The list
displays only sizes that can be used for borderless printing.
4. Adjust the amount of extension from the paper
If necessary, adjust the amount of extension using the Amount of Extension slider.
Moving the slider to the right increases the amount extending off the paper, and moving the slider to
the left decreases the amount.
It is recommended to set the slider at the second position from the right for most cases.
Important
• When the Amount of Extension slider is set to the rightmost position, the back side of the
paper may become smudged.
5. Complete the setup
Click OK.
When you execute print, the data is printed without any margins on the paper.
Important
• When a page size that cannot be used for borderless printing is selected, the size is automatically
changed to the valid page sizes for borderless printing.
• When Borderless is selected, the Printer Paper Size, Duplex Printing, Stapling Side settings, and
the Stamp/Background... (Stamp...) button on the Page Setup tab appear grayed out and are
unavailable.
• When Envelope, High Resolution Paper, or T-Shirt Transfers is selected from the Media Type list
on the Main tab, you cannot perform borderless printing.
• Depending on the type of the media used during borderless printing, the print quality may deteriorate
at the top and bottom of the sheet or stains may form.
• When the ratio of the height to the width differs from the image data, a portion of the image may not
be printed depending on the size of the media used.
In this case, crop the image data with an application software according to the paper size.
Note
• When Plain Paper is selected for Media Type on the Main tab, borderless printing is not
recommended. Therefore, the message for media selection appears.
When you are using plain paper for test printing, select Plain Paper, and click OK.
Expanding the Range of the Document to Print
Setting a large amount of extension allows you to perform borderless printing with no problems. However,
the portion of the document extending off the paper range will not be printed and for this reason, the
subjects around the perimeter of a photo may not be printed.
When you are not satisfied with the result of borderless printing, reduce the amount of extension. The
extension amount decreases as the Amount of Extension slider is moved to the left.
369
Important
• When the amount of extension is decreased, an unexpected margin may be produced on the print,
depending on the size of the paper.
Note
• When the Amount of Extension slider is set to the leftmost position, image data will be printed in the
full size. If you set this when printing the address side of a postcard, the postal code of the sender is
printed in the correct position.
• When Preview before printing is checked on the Main tab, you can confirm whether there will be no
margin before printing.

Optimal Photo Printing of Image Data
When people print images taken with digital cameras, they sometimes feel that the printed color tones differ
from those of actual image or those displayed on the monitor.
To get the print results as close as possible to the desired color tones, you must select a printing method
that is best suited to the application software used or to your purpose.
Color Management
Devices such as digital cameras, scanners, monitors, and printers handle color differently. Color
management (color matching) is a method that manages device-dependent "colors" as a common color
space.
For Windows, a color management system called "ICM" is built into the operating system.
Adobe RGB and sRGB are popularly used as common color spaces. Adobe RGB has a wider color space
than sRGB.
ICC profiles convert device-dependent "colors" into a common color space. By using an ICC profile and
carrying out color management, you can draw out the color space of the image data within the color
reproduction area that the printer can express.
Selecting a Printing Method Suited to the Image Data
The recommended printing method depends on the color space (Adobe RGB or sRGB) of the image data
or the application software to be used.
There are two typical printing methods.
Check the color space (Adobe RGB or sRGB) of the image data and the application software to be used,
and then select the printing method suited to your purpose.
Adjusting Colors with the Printer Driver
Describes the procedure for printing sRGB data by using the color correction function of the printer
driver.
• To print using Canon Digital Photo Color
The printer prints data with color tints that most people prefer, reproducing colors of the original
image data and producing three-dimensional effects and high, sharp contrasts.
• To print by directly applying editing and touch-up results of an application software
When printing the data, the printer brings out subtle color difference between dark and light
areas, while leaving the darkest and lightest areas intact.
When printing the data, the printer applies fine adjustment results, such as brightness
adjustments made with an application software.
Printing with ICC Profiles
Describes the procedure for printing by using the color space of Adobe RGB or sRGB effectively.
You can print with a common color space by setting up the application software and the printer driver

Printing with ICC Profiles
When the image data has a specified input ICC profile, you can print by using the color space (Adobe RGB
or sRGB) of the data effectively.
The printer driver setting procedure varies depending on the application software used to print.
Specify an ICC Profile from the Application Software and Print the Data
When you print the editing and touch-up results of Adobe Photoshop, Canon Digital Photo Professional,
or any application software that allows you to specify input and printing ICC profiles, you print by
effectively using the color space of the input ICC profile specified in the image data.
To use this printing method, use your application software to select color management items and specify
an input ICC profile and a printing ICC profile in the image data.
Even if you print using a printing ICC profile that you created yourself or one for special Canon paper, be
sure to select color management items from your application software.
For instructions, refer to the manual of the application software you are using.
1. Open the printer driver setup window
2. Select the manual color adjustment
On the Main tab, select Manual for Color/Intensity, and click Set....
The Manual Color Adjustment dialog box opens.
3. Select color correction
Click Matching tab, and select None for Color Correction.
4. Set the other items
If necessary, click Color Adjustment tab, and adjust the color balance (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) and
adjust Brightness, Intensity, and Contrast settings, and then click OK.
416
5. Complete the setup
Click OK on the Main tab.
When you execute print, the printer uses the color space of the image data.
Specify an ICC Profile with the Printer Driver, and then Print
Print from an application software that cannot identify input ICC profiles or does allow you to specify one
by using the color space of the input ICC profile (sRGB) found in the data. When printing Adobe RGB
data, you can print the data with the Adobe RGB color space even if the application software does not
support Adobe RGB.
1. Open the printer driver setup window
2. Select the manual color adjustment
On the Main tab, select Manual for Color/Intensity, and click Set....
The Manual Color Adjustment dialog box opens.
3. Select color correction
Click Matching tab, and select ICM (ICC Profile Matching) for Color Correction.

Select an Input Profile that matches the color space of the image data.
• For sRGB data or data without an input ICC profile:
Select Standard.
• For Adobe RGB data:
Select Adobe RGB (1998).
417
Important
• When the application software specifies an input profile, the input profile setting of the printer
driver becomes invalid.
• When no input ICC profiles are installed on your computer, Adobe RGB (1998) will not be
displayed.
5. Select the rendering intent
Select the coloring adjustment method in Rendering Intent.
• Saturation
This method reproduces images even more vividly than the Perceptual method.
• Perceptual
This method reproduces images by focusing on color tints that most people prefer. Select this
method to print photos.
• Relative Colorimetric
When image data is converted to the color space of the printer, this method converts the image
data so the color reproduction approximates the shared color regions. Select this method to print
image data with colors that are close to the original colors.
The white spots are reproduced as white spots (background color) on the paper.
• Absolute Colorimetric
This method uses the white spot definitions in the input and output ICC profiles to convert the
image data.
Although the color and color balance of the white spots change, you may not be able to get the
desired output results because of the profile combination.
Important
• Depending on the media type, you may obtain the same print results even when you change
the Rendering Intent setting.
• When Windows XP SP2 or Windows XP SP3 is used, this function is disabled.
6. Set the other items
If necessary, click Color Adjustment tab, and adjust Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Brightness, Intensity,
and Contrast settings, and then click OK.
7. Complete the setup

specific color affects the entire picture due to the weather or ambient strong colors.
Click an arrow in Color Adjustment to emphasize the corresponding color.
Cyan & red, magenta & green, and yellow & blue are complementary color pairs (each pair produces a
shade of gray when mixed). You can reproduce the natural colors of the scene by reducing the cast color
and increasing the complementary color.
It is recommended that you find a portion in the image where it should be white, and adjust the colors so
that the portion turns white.

Underexposure (Concave curve)
The midtone data of the input side is stretched toward the shadow of the output side, resulting in a darktoned image when viewed on a monitor.
High contrast (S curve)
The highlight and shadow of the input side are enhanced, resulting in a high-contrast image.
Reverse the negative/positive image (Downward-sloping line)
The input and output sides are reversed, resulting in a negative-positive inverted image.
669
Edit custom curve
You can drag specific points on the Tone Curve to freely adjust the brightness of the corresponding areas.

General Notes (Scanner Driver)
ScanGear (scanner driver) is subject to the following restrictions. Keep these points in mind when using it.
Scanner Driver Restrictions
• When using the NTFS file system, the TWAIN data source may not be invoked. This is because the
TWAIN module cannot be written to the winnt folder for security reasons. Contact the computer's
administrator for help.
• Some computers (including laptops) connected to the machine may not resume correctly from
standby mode. In that case, restart the computer.
• Do not connect two or more scanner or multifunction printers with scanner function to the same
computer simultaneously. If multiple scanning devices are connected, you cannot scan from the
operation panel of the machine and also may experience errors while accessing the devices.
• Scanning may fail if the computer has resumed from sleep or standby mode. In that case, follow these
steps and scan again.
1. Turn off the machine.
2. Exit ScanGear, then disconnect the USB cable from the computer and reconnect it.
3. Turn on the machine.
• ScanGear cannot be opened in multiple applications at the same time. Within an application,
ScanGear cannot be opened for the second time when it is already open.
• Be sure to close the ScanGear window before closing the application.
• When using a network compatible model by connecting to a network, the machine cannot be
accessed from multiple computers at the same time.
• When using a network compatible model by connecting to a network, scanning takes longer than
usual.
• Make sure that you have adequate disk space available when scanning large images at high
resolutions. For example, at least 300 MB of free space is required to scan an A4 document at 600
dpi in full-color.
• ScanGear and WIA driver cannot be used at the same time.
• Do not enter the computer into sleep or hibernate state during scanning.
Applications with Restrictions on Use
• If you start Media Center included in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, you may not be able to
scan using the operation panel of the machine. In that case, restart the computer.
• You cannot scan images with Media Center included in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.
Scan with other applications such as IJ Scan Utility.
• Some applications may not display the TWAIN user interface. In that case, refer to the application's
manual and change the settings accordingly.
• Some applications do not support continuous scanning of multiple documents. In some cases, only
the first scanned image is accepted, or multiple images are scanned as one image. For such
applications, do not scan multiple documents from the ADF (Auto Document Feeder).
• To import scanned images into Microsoft Office 2000, first save them using IJ Scan Utility, then import
the saved files from the Insert menu.
• When scanning Platen size images into Microsoft Office 2003 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), click
Custom Insert in the Insert Picture from Scanner or Camera screen. Otherwise, images may not
be scanned correctly.
717
• When scanning images into Microsoft Office 2007/Microsoft Office 2010 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
etc.), use Microsoft Clip Organizer.
• Images may not be scanned correctly in some applications. In that case, increase the operating
system's virtual memory and retry.
• When image size is too large (such as when scanning large images at high resolution), your computer
may not respond or the progress bar may remain at 0 % depending on the application. In that case,
cancel the action (for example by clicking Cancel on the progress bar), then increase the operating
system's virtual memory or reduce the image size/resolution and retry. Alternatively, scan the image
via IJ Scan Utility first, then save and import it into the application.

720
Resolution
The data in the image you have scanned is a collection of dots carrying information about brightness and
color. The density of these dots is called "resolution", and resolution will determine the amount of detail your
image contains. The unit of resolution is dots per inch (dpi). Dpi is the number of dots per inch (2.5 cm).
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less
detail.
How to Set the Resolution
You can set the resolution in the following screens.
IJ Scan Utility:
Resolution on the
(Scanning from a Computer) tab of the Settings dialog box
ScanGear (Scanner Driver):
Output Resolution in Output Settings on the Advanced Mode tab

Important
• If you double the resolution, the data size of the scanned image quadruples. If the file is too large, the
processing speed will slow down significantly, and you will experience inconvenience such as lack of
memory. Set the minimum required resolution according to the use of the image.
Note
• When you will be printing the scanned image by enlarging it, scan by setting a higher resolution than
the recommended one above.
722
Data Formats
You can select a data format when saving scanned images. You should specify the most suitable data
format according to how you want to use the image on which application.
Available data formats vary by application and operating system (Windows or Mac OS).
See below for the characteristics of each image data format.
PNG (Standard File Extension: .png)
A data format often used on websites.
PNG is suitable for editing saved images.
JPEG (Standard File Extension: .jpg)
A data format often used on websites and for digital camera images.
JPEG features high compression rates. JPEG images slightly degrade every time they are saved, and
cannot be returned to their original state.
JPEG is not available for black and white images.
TIFF (Standard File Extension: .tif)
A data format featuring a relatively high compatibility between various computers and applications.
TIFF is suitable for editing saved images.
Note
• Some TIFF files are incompatible.
• IJ Scan Utility supports the following TIFF file formats.
• Uncompressed, black and white binary
• Uncompressed, RGB (8 bits per channel)
• Uncompressed, Grayscale
PDF (Standard File Extension: .pdf)
A data format for electronic documents, developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated.
It can be used on various computers and operating systems, and fonts can be embedded as well; therefore,
people in different environments can exchange the files without being aware of the differences.
723
Color Matching
"Color Matching" is the act of making adjustments so that the color tones match between the original item,
the monitor display, and the color printout. On your scanner or printer, the color tones are adjusted as
shown below.
Example: When sRGB is selected as the output profile (target):
The image's color space is converted from the scanner's color space to sRGB by ScanGear.
When displaying on a monitor, the image's color space is converted from sRGB to the monitor's color space
based on the operating system's monitor settings and the application's working space settings.
When printing, the image's color space is converted from sRGB to the printer's color space based on the
application's print settings and the printer driver's settings.

Copying/Printing Stops Before It Is Completed
Check1
Is the paper loaded?
Make sure that paper is loaded.
If the machine has run out of paper, load paper.
Check2
Do the printing documents have lots of photographs or illustrations?
As printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the machine and the computer to process, the
machine may appear to have stopped operating.
In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the machine may
pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.
Note
• If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing
may pause to allow the ink to dry.
Check3
Has the machine been printing continuously for a long period?
If the machine has been printing continuously for a long time, the print head or other parts around it may
overheat. The machine may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.
In this case, wait for a while without operation. If the printing still does not resume, interrupt your print session at
a convenient time and turn the machine off for at least 15 minutes.
Caution
• The print head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the machine. Never touch the
print head or nearby components.

Problems with Printing Quality
Print Results Not Satisfactory
Ink Is Not Ejected
801
Print Results Not Satisfactory
If the print result is not satisfactory due to white streaks, misaligned lines, or uneven colors, confirm the
paper and print quality settings first.
Check1
Do the page size and media type settings match the size and type of the loaded
paper?
When these settings are incorrect, you cannot obtain a proper print result.
If you are printing a photograph or an illustration, incorrect paper type settings may reduce the quality of the
printout color.
Also, if you print with an incorrect paper type setting, the printed surface may be scratched.
In borderless printing, uneven coloring may occur depending on the combination of the paper type setting and
the loaded paper.
The method of confirming the paper and print quality settings differs depending on what you do with your
machine.

Load the paper after correcting its curl.
When using Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss, even if the sheet is curled, load one sheet at a time as it is. If you roll
up this paper to flatten, this may cause cracks on the surface of the paper and reduce the print quality.
We recommend putting unused paper back into the package and keeping it on a level surface.
• For Plain Paper
Turn the paper over and reload it to print on the other side.
• For Other Paper
If the curl on the four corners of the paper is more than 0.1 inch / 3 mm (A) in height, the paper may be
smudged or may not be fed properly. In such cases, follow the procedure described below to correct the
paper curl.
813
1. Roll up the paper in the opposite direction to the paper curl as shown below.
2. Check that the paper is now flat.
We recommend printing curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.
Note
• Depending on the media type, the paper may be smudged or may not be fed properly even if it is not
curled inward. In such cases, follow the procedure described below to curl the paper outward within 0.1
inch / 3 mm (B) in height before printing. This may improve the print result.
(C) Printing side
We recommend printing paper that has been curled outward one sheet at a time.
Check4
Adjust the setting to prevent paper abrasion.
Adjusting the setting to prevent paper abrasion will widen the clearance between the print head and the loaded
paper. If you notice abrasion even with the media type set correctly to match the loaded paper, set the machine
to prevent paper abrasion by using the operation panel or the computer.
Print speed may be reduced if you apply the setting to prevent paper abrasion setting.
