Important
If you cut plain paper into small paper such as 4" x 6" / 10 x 15 cm, 4" x 8" / 101.6 x 203.2 mm, 5" x
7" / 13 x 18 cm, or 2.16" x 3.58" / 55.0 x 91.0 mm (Card size) to perform trial print, it can cause
paper jams.
Always load paper in the portrait orientation (A). Loading paper in the landscape orientation (B) can
cause paper jams.
When performing duplex printing, make sure that there is no uneven surface or no dust and stain on
the area (desk, etc.) where the printed paper is ejected. If there is uneven surface or dust and
stain on that area, the printing result and printer can be badly effected.
Note
We recommend Canon genuine photo paper for printing photos.
For details on the Canon genuine paper, see Media Types You can Use .
You can use general copy paper. When printing on both sides, we recommend Canon's Super
White Paper.
For the page size and paper weight you can use for the printer, see Media Types You can Use .

Flatten the four corners of paper before loading it.
Note
Align the edges of paper neatly before loading. Loading paper without aligning the edges may
cause paper jams.

the paper becomes completely flat.
For details on flattening curled paper, refer to the " Troubleshooting " in the on-screen manual:
Advanced Guide.

Replacing a FINE Cartridge
When ink runs out while printing is in progress, the Alarm lamp flashes orange four times and the error
message will appear on your computer screen. Make sure which ink has run out and replace it with a
new FINE Cartridge.
Note
If the error message appears, confirm the displayed message and take an appropriate action.
For details, refer to the "Four Flashes: Ink has run out." of the "Alarm Lamp Flashes Orange" in the "
Troubleshooting " of the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide.
For information on compatible FINE Cartridges, refer to the printed manual: Getting Started .
Checking the Ink Status
You can check the ink status of each FINE Cartridge on the printer status monitor (Windows) and
Canon IJ Printer Utility (Macintosh).
Note
The ink level detector is mounted on the printer to detect the remaining ink level. The printer
considers as ink is full when a new FINE Cartridge is installed, and then starts to detect a
remaining ink level. If you install a used FINE Cartridge, the indicated ink level of it may not be
correct. In such case, refer to the ink level information only as a guide.
(A) Check if any symbol appears on the screen.
Ink with (Ink low) is running low. You can continue printing for a while, but we
recommend you to have a new FINE Cartridge available.
Follow the procedure below to open each of the confirmation screens.
(1) Open the printer properties dialog box.
See Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box (Windows) .
(2) Click the Maintenance tab, and View Printer Status.
To confirm the ink level information, click the Ink Details menu.
Note
You can also display the printer status monitor by clicking Canon XXX (where " XXX" is
your printer's name) which appears on the taskbar during printing.

Replacing Procedure
When FINE Cartridges run out of ink, follow the procedure below to replace them.
Important
Handling FINE Cartridges
Do not touch the electrical contacts (A) or print head nozzles (B) on a FINE Cartridge. The
printer may not print out properly if you touch it.
To maintain optimal printing quality, we recommend the use of specified Canon brand FINE
Cartridges.
Refilling ink is not recommended.
If you remove a FINE Cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the printer with FINE
Cartridges removed.
Replace empty cartridges with new ones. If you insert FINE Cartridges that have been
removed once, the printer may not print out properly due to some reasons such as clogging of
the nozzles.
Furthermore, with such cartridges, the Low Ink Warning may not appear properly.
To maintain optimal print quality, install FINE Cartridges in the printer within the date indicated on
the package box. And also use up FINE Cartridges within six months after the installation (We
recommend you to put down the date when installing them).
Note
If a FINE Cartridge runs out of ink, you can print with either Color or Black FINE Cartridge, in
whichever ink remains, only for a while. However the print quality may be reduced compared
to when printing with both cartridges. We recommend to use new FINE cartridges in order to
obtain optimum qualities.
Even when printing with one ink only, print with leaving the empty FINE Cartridge installed. If
either of the Color FINE Cartridge or Black FINE Cartridge is not installed, an error occurs and
the printer cannot print.
For information on how to configure this setting, refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced
Guide.
Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when blackand-white printing is specified.
Every ink is also consumed in Print Head Cleaning and Print Head Deep Cleaning, which may
be necessary to maintain the printer's performance. When ink has run out, replace the FINE
Cartridge immediately with a new one.
1.
Make sure that the power is turned on, and open the Front Cover.
The FINE Cartridge Holder moves to the replacement position.
Caution
Do not hold the FINE Cartridge Holder to stop or move it forcibly.
Do not touch the metallic parts or other parts inside the printer.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Replacing Procedure
Important
If the Front Cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the FINE Cartridge Holder moves to the
right. In this case, close and reopen the Front Cover.
2.
Remove the empty FINE Cartridge.
(1) Push down the FINE Cartridge.
(2) Remove the FINE Cartridge.
Important
Handle FINE Cartridges carefully to avoid staining of clothing or the surrounding area.
Discard empty FINE Cartridges according to the local laws and regulations regarding disposal
of consumables.
3.
Prepare the new FINE cartridge.
Take the new FINE Cartridge out of its package and remove the orange protective tape (A) gently.
Important
If you shake a FINE Cartridge, ink may spill out and stain your hands or the surrounding area.
Handle FINE Cartridges carefully.
Be careful not to stain your hands or surrounding area with ink on the removed protective
tape.
Do not reattach the protective tape once you have removed it. Discard it according to the local
laws and regulations regarding disposal of consumables.

The Black FINE Cartridge should be installed into the left slot (B) and the Color FINE Cartridge should be into
the right slot (C).
(2) Push up the FINE Cartridge until it clicks into place.
Important
The printer cannot print unless both the Black and Color FINE Cartridges are installed. Be sure
to install both the FINE Cartridges.
5.
Close the Front Cover.
Note
If the Alarm lamp still flashes orange after the Front Cover is closed, refer to the "
Troubleshooting " in the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide.
When you start printing after replacing the FINE Cartridge, the printer starts cleaning the Print
Head automatically. Do not perform any other operations until the printer completes the
cleaning of the Print Head. The Power lamp flashes green during cleaning.

Tips on How to Use Your Printer
This section introduces the tips on how to use your printer and for printing with optimal quality.
Ink is used for various purposes.
How is ink used for various purposes other than printing?
Ink may be used for purposes other than printing. Ink is not only used for printing, but also for cleaning
the Print Head to maintain the optimal printing quality.
The printer has the function to automatically clean the ink jet nozzles to prevent clogging. In the cleaning
procedure, ink is pumped out from the nozzles. Used ink for nozzle cleaning is limited to a small amount.
Important
The ink pumped out from the nozzles, such as when cleaning the Print Head, is absorbed by ink
absorber in the printer. The ink absorber needs to be replaced when it is full. You cannot replace it
by yourself. When the error message appears, contact your Canon service representative as soon
as possible.
Refer to the "Troubleshooting " in the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide.
Does black-and-white printing use color ink?
The use of color or black ink varies depending on the color of image to be printed or the contents of
document. Black-and-white printing may also use color ink. So, color ink is consumed even when
printing in black-and-white.
Printing on special paper: How to print with optimal quality!?
Tip!: Check the printer status before printing!
Is the Print Head ok?
If print head nozzles are clogged, print will be faint and papers will be wasted. Print the nozzle
check pattern to check the Print Head.
See When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors Are Incorrect .
Is the inside of the printer 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 printer with Bottom Plate
Cleaning.
Refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide .
Tip!: Check how to load the paper correctly!
Is the paper loaded in the correct orientation?
To load paper in the Rear Tray, load paper with the printing side facing you.

Is the paper curled?
The curled paper causes paper jam. Flatten the curled paper, then reload it.
Refer to the "Troubleshooting" in the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide .
Tip!: After loading paper, be sure to specify the paper settings!
After loading paper, be sure to select the loaded paper in Media Type of the printer driver. If the type of
paper is not selected, you may not be able to get the satisfactory print result.
See Printing.
There are various types of paper: paper with special coating on the surface for printing photos with
optimal quality and paper suitable for documents. Media Type of the printer driver has different settings
for each type of paper in advance (such as using ink, ejecting ink, or distance from nozzles) so that you
can print on each paper with the optimal image quality. You can print with different settings in Media Type
suitable for each type of loaded paper.
Use the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel printing!
Tip!: Never press the Power button!
If you press the Power button while printing is in progress, the print data sent from the computer queues
in the printer and you may not be able to continue to print.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel printing.
Note
If you cannot cancel printing by pressing the RESUME/CANCEL button while printing from a
computer, open the printer properties dialog box to delete the unnecessary print jobs from the
printer status monitor (Windows).
How to maintain the optimal printing quality?
The key to printing with the optimal printing quality is to prevent the Print Head from drying or clogging.
Always follow the following steps for optimal printing quality.
Follow the procedure below to turn the power off.
1 Press the Power button on the printer to turn it off.
2 Be sure that the Power lamp is not lit.
3 Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, or turn off the extender cable connector.
If you press the Power button to turn off the power, the printer caps the Print Head (nozzles)
automatically to prevent from drying. If you unplug the power cord from the wall outlet or turn off
the extender cable connector before the Power lamp is turned off, the Print Head will not be
capped properly and this will cause drying or clogging.
To turn off the power, be sure to follow this procedure.
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 printer has not been
used for a long time.
We recommend the printer to be used 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.
Dose the printer need to be handled with care when storing or

transporting?
Tip!: Do not store or transport the printer vertically or slanted!
If the printer is stored or transported vertically or slanted, the printer may become damaged or ink may

How Can I Move (or Copy) the Saved File?
If you want to move (or copy) a file created and saved with Easy-PhotoPrint EX from one folder to another,
you need to move (or copy) the folder that was automatically created when originally saving that file as
well.
For example, when you save a file named "MyAlbum.el1," a folder named "MyAlbum.el1.Data" is
automatically created in the same folder that contains the "MyAlbum.el1" file. If you want to move (or copy)
the "MyAlbum.el1" file to another folder, move (or copy) the "MyAlbum.el1.Data" folder as well.
The "MyAlbum.el1.Data" folder contains the photos used in the album.
Note
The icons may vary depending on the items.
Important
Do not change the Data folder name; otherwise you will not be able to display the photos you edited
with Easy-PhotoPrint EX.

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. Without the borderless printing function, a margin is provided around the
printed data. If you want to print data such as a photo without providing any margin around it, select
Borderless Printing.
The procedure for performing borderless printing is as follows:
Setting Borderless Printing
1. Open the printer driver setup window
2. Set borderless printing
Check the Borderless Printing check box 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.

displays only sizes that can be used for borderless printing.
4. Adjust the amount of extension from the paper
Adjust the amount of extension using the Amount of Extension slider as necessary.
Moving the slider to the right makes the amount larger and moving the slider to the left makes the
amount smaller.

Стр. 187 из 334 стр.
It is recommended to set the slider at the second position from the right for most cases.
Important
If you set the slider at the rightmost position, the back side of the paper may become smudged.
5. Complete the setup
Click OK.
The data will be printed without any margins on the paper.
Important
If 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 High Resolution Paper, T-Shirt Transfers, or Envelope is selected from the Media Type list on
the Main tab, you cannot perform borderless printing.
When Borderless Printing is checked, the Printer Paper Size, Page Layout, Staple Side (when
Duplex Printing is not selected) settings, and the Stamp/Background... button on the Page Setup tab
appear grayed out and are unavailable.
Print quality may deteriorate or the sheet may be stained at the top and bottom depending on the
type of the media used.
When the ratio of the height to the width differs greatly 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, and therefore the dialog box for media selection appears.
If you are using plain paper for test printing, select Plain Paper, and click OK.
Expanding the range of the document to print
Specifying a large amount of extension allows you to perform borderless printing with no problems.
However, the portion of the document that extends off the paper range will not be printed. Subjects
around the perimeter of a photo may not be printed.
Try borderless printing once. If you are not satisfied with the result of borderless printing, reduce the
amount of extension. The extension amount becomes shorter as the Amount of Extension slider is
moved to the left.
Important
If the Amount of Extension is shortened, an unexpected margin may be produced on the print,
depending on the size of the paper.
Note
If Preview before printing is checked on the Main tab, you can confirm before printing whether there
will be no border.

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.
sRGB and Adobe RGB 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.
To print using Canon Digital Photo Color
Target data: sRGB data
Printing method: Adjusting Colors with the Printer Driver
To print using the color space of the data effectively
Target data: Adobe RGB data or sRGB data
Application software: An ICC profile can or cannot be specified.
Printing method: Printing with ICC Profiles

Printing with ICC Profiles
If the image data has a specified ICC profile, you can effectively use the color space (Adobe RGB or
sRGB) of the data when printing.
The printer driver setting procedure varies depending on the application software used to print.
Printing image data from the application software that can specify an ICC profile
When using Adobe Photoshop, Canon Digital Photo Professional, or any other application software that
allows you to specify an ICC profile, you can use the color management system (ICM) found in Windows
when printing the data. You can print the editing and touch-up results of an application software by
effectively using the color space of the ICC profile specified in the image data.
To use this printing method, you must first use an application software to specify an ICC profile in the
image data. For instructions on specifying an ICC profile with an application software program, refer to
the manual of the application software you are using.

Adjusting Color Balance
You can adjust the color tints during printing.
Since this function adjusts color balance of the output by changing the ink ratios of each color, it changes
the total color balance of the document. Use the application software if you want to change the color
balance significantly. Use the printer driver only if you want to adjust the color balance slightly.
The following sample shows the case when Color Balance is used to intensify cyan and to diminish
yellow so that the overall colors are more uniform.
No adjustment

The procedure for adjusting color balance is as follows:
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. Adjust color balance
There are individual sliders for Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. Each color becomes stronger when the
corresponding slider is moved to the right, and becomes weaker when the corresponding slider is
moved to the left. For example, if cyan becomes weaker, the color red becomes stronger.
You can also directly enter a value linked to the slider. Enter a value in the range from -50 to 50.
After adjusting each color, click OK.

Cleaning the Print Heads
The print head cleaning function allows you to remove any blockages in the print head nozzles. Perform
print head cleaning if printing is faint or a specific color fails to print, even though there is enough ink.
The procedure for cleaning the print heads is as follows:
Cleaning
1. Open the printer driver setup window
2. Make sure that the printer is on and then click Cleaning on the Maintenance tab
Print head cleaning starts.
3. Complete cleaning
Click OK when the confirmation message appears.
Next, the Nozzle Check dialog box opens.
4. Check the results
To check whether the print quality has improved, click Print Check Pattern. To cancel the check
process, click Cancel.
If cleaning the head once does not resolve the print head problem, clean it once more.
Deep Cleaning
Deep Cleaning is more thorough than Cleaning. Perform deep cleaning when two cleaning attempts do
not resolve the print head problem.
1. Open the printer driver setup window
2. Click Deep Cleaning on the Maintenance tab
The Deep Cleaning dialog box opens. Follow the instruction shown in the dialog box.
Click Initial Check Items to display the items you need to check before performing Deep Cleaning.
3. Make sure that the printer is on and then click Execute.
Click OK when the confirmation message appears.
Print head deep cleaning starts.
Important
Cleaning consumes a small amount of ink. Deep Cleaning consumes a larger amount of ink than
Cleaning.
Cleaning the print heads frequently will rapidly deplete your printer's ink supply. Consequently,
perform cleaning only when necessary.
Note
If there is no sign of improvement after Deep Cleaning, switch off the printer and perform again. If
there is still no sign of improvement, the ink may have run out. For details on the remedial action to
be taken, see "Machine Moves But Ink Is Not Ejected."

If the print result is not satisfactory due to white streaks, misaligned lines, or uneven colors, confirm the
paper and print quality settings first.
Check 1: 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.
Confirm the page size and media type settings using the printer driver.
Printing with Easy Setup
Check 2: Make sure that the appropriate print quality is selected
according to the media type and printing data using the printer driver.

Check 3: Load the paper after correcting its curl.
For Plain Paper
Turn the paper over and reload it to print on the other side.
Leaving the paper loaded on the Rear Tray for a long time may cause the paper to curl. In this

We recommend putting unused paper back into the package and keep it on a level surface.
For Other Paper
1. With the printing side (A) facing up, cover the paper with a fresh sheet of plain paper to
avoid staining or scratching the surface.
2. Roll up the paper in the opposite direction to the paper curl as seen below.

Advanced Guide > Troubleshooting > Printing Stops Before It Is Completed
Printing Stops Before It Is Completed
Check 1: Has the printer been printing continuously for a long period?
If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head may overheat. To protect
the Print Head, the printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume
printing.
In this case, interrupt your print session at a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least 15
minutes.
Additionally, if the printer has been printing graphics or photos with intense colors continuously over
a period of time, the printer may stop printing to protect the Print Head. In this case, printing will not
resume automatically. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.
caution
The Print Head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the printer. Never
touch the Print Head or nearby components.
Check 2: Is the paper loaded?
Make sure that paper is loaded in the Rear Tray.
If the printer has run out of paper, load paper.
Check 3: Do the printing documents have lots of photographs or
illustrations?
Printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to
process, during which the printer may appear to have stopped operating.
In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the
printer 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.

Paper Does Not Feed Properly
Check 1: Make sure of the following when you load paper.
When loading two or more sheets of paper, align the edges of the sheets before loading.
When loading two or more sheets of paper, make sure that the paper stack does not exceed the
paper support load limit.
However, proper feeding of paper may not be possible at this maximum capacity depending on
the type of paper or environmental conditions (either very high or low temperature and humidity).
In such cases, reduce the sheets of paper you load at a time to less than half of the paper
support load limit.
Always load the paper in portrait orientation, regardless of the printing orientation.
When you load the paper, load the paper with the print side facing UP. Align the paper stack
against the right side of the Rear Tray and slide the Paper Guide so that it just touches the left
edge of the stack.
Loading Paper
Check 2: Check to see if the paper you are printing on is too thick or
curled.

Check 3: Make sure of the following when you load envelopes.
When printing on envelopes, refer to Loading Paper , and prepare the envelopes before printing.
Once you have prepared the envelopes, load them in portrait orientation. If the envelopes are
placed in landscape orientation, they will not feed properly.
Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right.

Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Rear Tray or from the Paper Output Slot,
whichever is easier.
note
If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, turn the printer off, open the
Front Cover, and remove the paper.
Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer.

Loading Paper
A5-sized paper is suited to printing documents consisting mainly of text. We do not
recommend using such paper to print documents with photos or graphics, since the
printout may curl and cause paper exit jams.
If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the printer, or if the paper jam error
continues after removing the paper, contact your Canon service representative.
In other cases:
Make sure of the following:
Check 1: Are there any foreign objects in the Rear Tray or around the Paper
Output Slot?
Check 2: Is the paper curled?

the printer driver.
Restrictions on the Printer Driver
With some applications, the Copies setting in the Page Setup tab of the printer driver may not be
enabled.

If the selected Language in the About dialog box does not match the operating system interface
language, the driver screen may not be displayed properly.
Do not change the Advanced tab items of the printer properties. If you change any of the items, you
will not be able to use the following functions correctly.
Also, if Print to file is selected in the Print dialog box of the application software and with applications
that prohibit EMF spooling, such as Adobe Photoshop LE and MS Photo Editor, the following

: Canon recommends that you print within this area.
: The area where it is possible to print.
However, printing in this area can affect the print quality or the paper feed precision.
note
Borderless Printing
By selecting Borderless Printing option, you can make prints with no margins.
When performing Borderless Printing, slight cropping may occur at the edges since the printed
image is enlarged to fill the whole page.

Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce printing
quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.
Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only
for test printing.
Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the top and
bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.
