Safety Precautions
Please read the safety warnings and cautions provided in this manual to ensure that you use the
machine safely. Do not attempt to use the machine in any way not described in this manual.
Warning
z This product emits low level magnetic flux. If you use a cardiac pacemaker and feel abnormalities,
please move away from this product and consult your doctor.
z You may cause an electric shock, fire, or damage the machine if you ignore any of these safety
precautions.
Choosing a location
Do not place the machine close to flammable solvents such as alcohol or thinners.
Power supply
Never attempt to plug in or unplug the machine from the power supply when your hands are wet.
Always push the plug all the way into the power outlet.
Never damage, modify, stretch or excessively bend or twist
the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on the power
cord.
Never plug the machine into a power socket that is shared
with other equipment (extension lead/cord, 2- or 3-way
adapter, etc.).
Never use the machine if the power cord is bundled or knotted.
If you detect smoke, unusual smells or strange noises around the machine, immediately unplug
the machine at the power supply and call for service.
Periodically, unplug the machine and use a dry cloth to wipe
off any dust or dirt collected on the plug and the power outlet.
If the machine is placed at a location exposed to a lot of dust,
smoke, or high humidity, the dust collected on the plug
absorbs moisture and may cause insulation failure and fire.
If you hear thunder, disconnect the power supply of the machine and refrain from using it. Leaving
the machine plugged in may cause fire, electric shock, or damage to the machine, depending on
the thunder storm.
Use the power cable included with the machine.
Safety Precautions
3
Cleaning the machine Use a damp cloth to clean the machine. Never use
flammable solvents such as alcohol, benzene or thinners.
If flammable solvents come in contact with electrical
components inside the machine, it could cause a fire or
electric shock.
Always unplug the machine from the power outlet before cleaning the machine.
If you accidentally switch the machine on while cleaning it, you could injure yourself or damage the

inside the machine.
Caution
You may cause injury or damage the machine if you ignore any of these safety precautions.
Choosing a location
Do not install the machine in a location that is unstable or subject to excessive vibration.
Since this machine weighs approximately 36.6 lbs. (16.6 kg), it is recommended that two people
move or relocate the machine. Attempting to do so alone could result in dropping the machine or
injuring yourself.
Do not install the machine in locations that are very humid or dusty, in direct sunlight, outdoors, or
close to a heating source.
To avoid the risk of fire or electric shocks, install the machine in a location with an ambient
temperature range of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F) and humidity of 10% to 90% (condensation free).
Do not place the machine on a thick rug or carpet.
Do not place the machine with its back attached to the wall.
Power supply
Ensure that the area around the power outlet is kept clear at
all times so you can easily unplug the power cord if
necessary.
Never remove the plug by pulling on the cord.
Do not use an extension lead/cord.

the machine or injuring yourself.
When moving the machine, carry the machine at both ends.
Do not hold the Operation Panel.
Do not place any object on the machine.
Do not place metal objects (paper clips, staples, etc.) or containers of flammable solvents (alcohol,
thinners, etc.) on top of the machine.
If any foreign object (metal or liquid) fall into the machine, unplug the power cord and call for
service.
Do not transport or store the machine on a slant, vertically or upside-down, as the ink may leak
and damage the machine.
When loading a thick book on the Platen Glass, do not press hard on the Document Cover. The
Platen Glass may break and cause injury.
Print Heads and ink

to drink.
If irritation or discomfort occurs, obtain medical advice immediately.
In case ink gets in contact with eyes, rinse with water immediately.
In case ink gets in contact with skin, wash with soap and water immediately.
If irritation to eyes or skin persists, obtain medical advice immediately.
Do not shake Print Heads or ink tanks.
Ink may leak out and stain clothing or the surrounding area.
Never touch the electrical contacts on a Print Head after
printing.
The metal parts may be very hot and could cause burns.
Do not throw ink tanks into fire.

Included Items
Check that all the following items are in the box. If anything is missing or damaged, contact your
Canon service representative.

z Setup CD-ROM
z Easy Setup Instructions (Setup Sheet)
z Network Setup Guide
z Quick Start Guide
z Print Head
z Ink tanks (PGI-9PBK, PGI-7BK, PGI-9Y, PGI-9M, PGI-9C)
z Clear ink tank (PGI-9Clear)
The clear ink is used only when printing on plain paper.
When printing on standard plain paper, which readily absorbs ink, printed text or images may
be blurred or colors may run together. By coating the surface of plain paper with clear ink
before actual printing begins, the clear ink coating prevents absorption of other inks to
enhance colors and prevent smudging when printing on both sides of the paper.
In addition, paper curling, which often occurs when printing on plain paper, is reduced.
Note that, since plain paper is coated with the clear ink after it is printed out, any pencil marks
made in the margin of the paper may not come off easily with use of an eraser.
z Power cord
z Telephone line cable
z Cleaning sheets (for sheet cleaning)
z Additional documents
* A USB cable is necessary to connect the machine with your computer.
* A LAN cable is necessary to connect the machine to the network.

„ Loading Paper
Important
z Only plain paper can be fed from the Cassette.
z When printing out received faxes, the machine uses A4, Letter, or Legal-sized plain paper
loaded in the Cassette. For details, see “Changing the Print Settings” on page 93.
z You cannot print on postcards affixed with photos or stickers.
z Always load paper in portrait orientation (A). Loading paper in landscape orientation (B) can
cause the paper to be jammed.
(A)
(B)
Note
z We recommend using genuine Canon photo media when printing photographs. For details on
the specialty media Canon provides for use with its various printers, see “Using Specialty
Media” on page 20.
When Printing on Plain Paper
z You can use general copy paper or Canon’s Super White Paper. When printing on both sides,
we recommend Canon’s Super White Paper Double-Sided.
Paper size:
– Standard sizes: A4, B5, A5, Letter, and Legal
– Non-standard sizes: 5.5 x 8.27 inches to 8.5 x 14.00 inches / 139.7 x 210.0 mm to 215.9 x
355.6 mm
Paper weight: 17 to 28 lb / 64 to 105 gsm (non-Canon genuine plain paper)
z 100% recycled paper can be used.
z If you cut plain paper to 4" x 6" / 101.6 x 152.4 mm, 5" x 7" / 127.0 x 177.8 mm, or 2.13" x 3.39"
/ 54.0 x 86.0 mm (credit card-size) for a trial print, it can cause paper jams.
z Loading Paper in the Rear Tray
Load photo paper, or any type of paper other than plain paper, in the Rear Tray.

Keeping the Best Printing Results
To avoid drying of the Print Head and clogging of the nozzles, note the following.
Note
z Ink may blur depending on the paper in the following cases:
– Printed area is traced with a highlight pen or paint-stick
– Printed area is stained with water or sweat
z If the print head nozzles get clogged, printouts will become faint or particular colors will not be printed
properly. For details, see “When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors Are Incorrect” on page 113.
„ When You Turn Off the Machine
Follow the procedure below to turn off the machine.
(1) Press the ON/OFF button to turn off the machine.
(2) Confirm that all the lamps on the Operation Panel have gone out.
(3) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
If you are using a power outlet strip, you can switch it off instead.
When you press the ON/OFF button to turn off the machine, the machine automatically puts a
protective cap on the Print Head to prevent the ink from drying. If you remove the power cord or
switch off the power outlet strip before all the lamps on the Operation Panel go out, this capping
will not be done properly, causing the Print Head to dry and clog.
„ When You Are Not Using the Machine for a Long Time
When you are not using the machine for a long time, print or copy in both black & white and in
color, or perform Print Head Cleaning, about once a month to prevent degradation of the Print
Head.
Numerous nozzles are installed in the Print Head for high-precision printing. Just as the
uncapped tip of a ballpoint pen or marker becomes dry and unusable if it is not used for a long
period of time, the print head nozzles become blocked by dried ink. Periodically printing or
cleaning the Print Head can prevent this blockage.
If you have not used the machine for a long time, print out the nozzle check pattern to check the
print head condition before printing. See “Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern” on page 114.
„ Inks Are Stirred on a Regular Basis
The machine automatically stirs inks to achieve maximum printing results. Therefore, printing on
a regular basis helps keep the inks in good condition.
When the machine is not used for an extended period of time, the machine automatically stirs
inks when the machine is turned on. If automatic ink quality maintenance is disabled, the inks
may separate, resulting in uneven densities. Be sure to follow “Performing Ink Quality
Maintenance Manually” on page 122 before printing. For details, refer to “Device Settings” of the
User’s Guide on-screen manual.
112
Routine Maintenance
When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors Are Incorrect
When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect even if ink remains in the ink tanks, the print
head nozzles are probably clogged. Print the nozzle check pattern to confirm the condition of the
nozzles and then perform Print Head Cleaning.
If print results are not satisfactory, performing Print Head Alignment may improve print quality.
Note
Before performing maintenance
z Open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and make sure that all lamps for the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see “Getting the Color or Black Ink Status Information” on page 103 and take the appropriate
action.
z Increase the Print Quality setting in the printer driver settings.
