tap Print and select a model name, the displayed printer options will include up to the following
four options:
• Printer: Select a model that can be used in your wireless LAN.
75
• Copies: Select the number of print copies.
• Duplex Printing: If the model supports duplex printing, you can select On or Off.

8. Tap the Print.
When you execute printing, the printer prints according to the specified settings.
Paper Size
With AirPrint, the paper size is selected automatically according to the app being used on the Apple
device and the region in which AirPrint is used.
When Apple's photo app is used, the default paper size is L size in Japan, and 4"x6" or KG in other
countries and regions.
When documents are printed from Apple's Safari app, the default paper size is letter size in the U.S.
region, and A4 in Japan and Europe.
Important
• Your app may support different paper sizes.
Checking the Print Status
During printing, a Print icon is displayed in the list of recently used app, and you can use it to check the
print progress.

images that extends off the paper.
Print settings
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.
For Borderless Printing, use the following paper:
- Photo Paper Pro Platinum <PT-101>
- Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" <GP-501/GP-601>
- Photo Paper Glossy <GP-601>
- Photo Paper Plus Glossy II <PP-201>
- Photo Paper Pro Luster <LU-101>
- Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss <SG-201>
- Matte Photo Paper <MP-101>
Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce
printing quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.

Restrictions on Card Slot Use over a Network
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.
294
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

• 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
computer can communicate.

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.
306
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.
Checking the Ink Status with the Ink Lamps
307
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.
Cleaning the Inside of the Machine (Bottom Plate Cleaning)
Check how to load the paper correctly!
Is the paper loaded in the correct orientation?
To load paper in a front tray, 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
308
Be Sure to Make Paper Settings after Loading Paper
If the media type setting is not the one for the loaded paper, printing results may not be
satisfactory. After loading paper, be sure to select the appropriate media type setting for the
loaded paper.
Print Results Not Satisfactory
There are various types of paper: paper with special coating on the surface for printing
photos with optimal quality and paper suitable for documents.
Each media type has specific preset settings, such as how ink is used and sprayed,
distance from nozzles, etc., so that you can print on that type with optimal image quality.
This allows you to print with the settings best suited for the loaded media type just by
selecting that media type.
309
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.
310
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 disconnect the power plug 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 disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet
before the power is turned off (the POWER lamp is not lit), the print head will not be capped
properly and this will cause drying or clogging.
When disconnecting the power plug, make sure that the POWER lamp is not lit.
Notice for Unplugging the Power Cord
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.
311
Precautions for Safe Transport of the Machine
When relocating the machine, make sure of the following.
Important
When sending the machine for repair
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 machine.
Notice for Unplugging 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 tray.
5. Disconnect the printer cable from the computer and from the machine,
then disconnect the power plug from the machine.
312
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.
