• Never install the printer on an unstable or vibrating surface. If it falls over, this could cause personal injury.
Caution
• Never set up the printer in a location that is exposed to high humidity or large amounts of dust, or exposed to
direct sunlight, high temperature, or open flame. This could cause a fire or electrical shock. Use the printer location in an environment where temperature and humidity are within the ranges of 15 °C to 30 °C (59 °F to 86 °F)
and 10 to 80% RH (with no condensation).
• Never place the printer on a heavy wool or shag carpet. The fibers may enter the printer and cause a fire.
• Keep the area around the power outlet clear of items so that you can disconnect the power cable immediately if
the printer starts operating abnormally. In the event of a printer malfunction, remove the power cable from the
outlet as soon as possible to prevent fire and electrical shocks.
• Do not install the printer near sources of strong electromagnetic fields, whether equipment that generates such
fields or places where such fields occur. This could damage the printer or cause malfunction.
Power Supply
• Never handle the power cable with wet hands. Doing so may cause electrical shock.
Warning • Insert the power cable securely and completely into the power source. If the power cable is not inserted complete-
ly, this could cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not use any power cable other than the one provided. This could cause a fire or electrical shock. Never use
the power cable with any other electrical device.
• Never cut the power cable or attempt to modify it, and never stretch it or bend it forcefully. Never place a heavy
object on the power cable. Damaged sections of the power cable could cause a short circuit and may cause a fire
or electrical shock.
• Never connect the power cable to a power strip or any power source shared by other electrical devices. This
could cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Never knot the power cable or wrap it around itself. This could cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Periodically disconnect the power cable and use a dry cloth to wipe away dust that has collected on the plug and
the area around the power outlet. Leaving the power cable plugged in and not cleaned for a long period, especially in an area subject to dust, oil, and humidity, could cause the insulation material to deteriorate and lead to a fire.

Cause
Corrective Action
The following sounds do not indicate a problem with the printer.
There is a sound of suction from the Platen
To prevent paper from rising, paper is held against the Platen by suction from Vacuum holes under it.
•
There is a sound when a different size of paper is used and when the Carriage goes from side to side
When paper of a different size is used, a valve is automatically activated to switch the area for paper suction,
which may make a sound. This mechanism prevents suction from Vacuum holes where there is no paper.
In addition, ink is ejected in sync with the movement of the Carriage back and forth to ensure optimal ink flow.
At this time, the valve automatically switches the area for paper suction, which may make a sound.

Corrective Action
Head Cleaning B in the Control Panel menu is executed

Head Cleaning B in the Control Panel menu consumes a lot of ink. This does not indicate a problem with the printer. Unless the printer has been moved or stored for a long period or you are
troubleshooting Printhead problems, we recommend not performing Head Cleaning B, to the extent possible.
You have just finished initial installation, when more ink is
consumed to fill the system.
After initial installation or at the first-time use after transfer, ink flows into the system between the
Ink Tank and Printhead.
Although the amount of remaining ink may drop as a result, it does not indicate a problem.
The Printhead nozzles are
clogged.
Check for nozzle clogging.
(See "Checking for Nozzle Clogging.") ➔ User's Guide
Ink Level Detection
Ink level detection will be deactivated if you load ink tanks once emptied.
Ink level detection
Ink tanks specified for this printer feature an ink level detection function to prevent the ink from running out during
printing, which prevents printer damage. (See "Ink Tanks.") ➔ User's Guide
This function will not work correctly if you use refill ink tanks. As a result, printing stops. Thus, before using refill ink
tanks, you must cancel the ink level detection.
Printing with the ink level detection canceled may lead to printer damage and printing problems. Canon Inc. is not
liable for any damage that may occur as a result of refilling ink.
Troubleshooting
• After ink level detection has been released, this function cannot be reactivated for currently loaded Ink Tank. To
