submitted for inclusion in the Work by You to the Licensor shall be under the terms and conditions of
this License, without any additional terms or conditions. Notwithstanding the above, nothing herein

16
goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages
or losses), even if such Contributor has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
9. Accepting Warranty or Additional Liability. While redistributing the Work or Derivative Works thereof,
You may choose to offer, and charge a fee for, acceptance of support, warranty, indemnity, or other
liability obligations and/or rights consistent with this License. However, in accepting such obligations,
You may act only on Your own behalf and on Your sole responsibility, not on behalf of any other

There are two methods for connecting the printer to your device (such as a smartphone). One method is
to connect using an access point, and the other method is to connect without using an access point.
The two connection methods cannot be used at the same time.
If you have an access point (or wireless network router), it is recommended that you use the method
described in Connection Using an Access Point.
When connecting another device while a device is already connected to the printer, connect it using the
same connection method as the connected device.
If you connect using a different connection method, the connection to the device in use will be disabled.

122
Replacing a FINE Cartridge
When remaining ink cautions or errors occur, the ink lamps and the Alarm lamp will flash to inform you of
the error. Count the number of flashes and take appropriate action.
If an Error Occurs
Replacing Procedure
When you need to replace a FINE cartridge, follow the procedure below.
Important
• Do not touch the electrical contacts (A) or print head nozzle (B) on a FINE cartridge. The machine
may not print properly if you touch them.
• If you remove a FINE cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the machine with the FINE
cartridge removed.
• Use a new FINE cartridge for replacement. Installing a used FINE cartridge may cause the nozzles to
clog.
Furthermore, with such a FINE cartridge, the machine will not be able to inform you when to replace
the FINE cartridge properly.
• Once a FINE cartridge has been installed, do not remove it from the machine and leave it out in the
open. This will cause the FINE cartridge to dry out, and the machine may not operate properly when it
is reinstalled. To maintain optimal printing quality, use a FINE cartridge within six months of first use.
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 a new FINE cartridge 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 machine
cannot print.
For information on how to configure this setting, see Setting the Ink Cartridge to be Used.
• Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when black-andwhite printing is specified.
Both color ink and black ink are also consumed in the standard cleaning and deep cleaning of the
print head, which may be necessary to maintain the performance of the machine. When ink runs out,
replace the FINE cartridge immediately with a new one.
123

2. Check the current printer name.
You can check the current printer name on the LCD of the printer.
3. On Finder, click the Go menu and Connect to Server.
4. Input "smb://xxxxxxxxxxxx/canon_memory/", then click Connect.
For example, if the current printer name is "123ABC000000", then input "smb://123ABC000000/
canon_memory/".
5. Make sure that the card slot is mounted.
When the card slot is mounted, the following icon appears on the desktop or in the Computer window
on the Go menu of Finder.
Note
• The authentication screen may appear. If it appears, you do not need to input the password.
• If you cannot mount the card slot with the method above, input the IP address of the machine
instead of the current printer name, and try again. For example, "smb://192.168.1.1/
canon_memory/". If you mount the card slot with the IP address, you have to remount it
whenever the machine's IP address changes.
Restrictions on Card Slot Use over a Network
• You cannot write data to a memory card in the card slot over a network. You can only read data from
a memory card.
210
• 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.
• 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.
• Disable the function to write files to a memory card from a computer to read files from a memory card
over a network.

Useful Information about Ink
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 machine 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.
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.
221
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, 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 rear tray, load paper WITH THE PRINTING SIDE FACING YOU.
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
222
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.
223
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.
224
Storing Printed Images
Store printed images in albums, clear photo sleeves, or glass frames to protect them from direct exposure to
air.
Note
• Storing printed images without sufficient drying may cause blurring or discoloration.
225
Machine Handling Precautions
Do not place any object on the document cover!
Do not place any object on the document cover. It will fall into the rear tray when the document cover is
opened and cause the machine to malfunction. Also, place the machine where objects will not fall on it.
226
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 while the ON lamp is lit or
flashing, the print head will not be capped properly and this will cause drying or clogging.
When unplugging the power cord, make sure that the ON 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.
227
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 FINE cartridge 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 ON lamp is off and unplugging the power cord.
Important
• Do not unplug the machine while the ON 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 tray and the output tray extension, then close the paper support.
4. Unplug the printer cable from the computer and from the machine, then unplug the power
cord from the machine.
5. 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.
6. Attach the protective material to the machine when packing the machine in the box.

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 Mac OS, a color management system called "ColorSync" 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 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 (Specifying an ICC Profile from the Application Software)
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
so that the color management matches the input ICC profile of the image data.
The method for setting up the printer driver differs depending on the application software to be used.
259
Adjusting Colors with the Printer Driver
You can specify the color correction function of the printer driver to print with color tints that most people
prefer through the use of Canon Digital Photo Color.
When printing from an application software that can identify ICC profiles and allows you to specify them, use
a printing ICC profile in the application software, and select settings for color management.
The procedure for adjusting colors with the printer driver is as follows:
1. Select Color Matching from the pop-up menu of the Print Dialog
2. Select color correction
Select Canon Color Matching.
3. Set the other items
From the pop-up menu, select Color Options. If necessary, adjust the color balance (Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow) and adjust Brightness, Intensity, and Contrast settings.
4. Complete the setup
Click Print.
When you execute print, the printer driver adjusts the colors when printing the data.

Printing with ICC Profiles (Specifying an ICC Profile from the
Application Software)
When you print from Adobe Photoshop, Canon Digital Photo Professional, or any application software that
can identify input ICC profiles and allows you to specify such profiles, printer uses the color management
system (ColorSync) built-into Mac OS when printing. The printer prints the editing and touch-up results of
the application software and effectively uses 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 from your application software, 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. Select Color Matching from the pop-up menu of the Print Dialog
2. Select color correction
Select ColorSync.
You can leave Profile set to Automatic.
Important
• Depending on the application software you use, you may not be able to select setting items other
than ColorSync.
• If you choose a Profile setting other than Automatic, the printer will not be able to print with the
correct colors.
3. Complete the setup
Click Print.
When you execute print, the printer uses the color space of the image data.

The cursor will change into
(Arrow) when it is positioned over a cropping frame. Click and drag
the mouse to expand or contract the cropping frame.
The cursor will change into
(Hand) when it is positioned within a cropping frame. Click and drag the
mouse to move the entire cropping frame.
Deleting Cropping Frames
To delete the cropping frame, deselect the Adjust cropping frames checkbox.
383
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 Resolution on the
