Do not use heavier or lighter paper (except for Canon genuine paper), as it could jam in the machine.
Notes on Storing Paper
Take out only the necessary number of paper from the package, just before printing.
To avoid curling, when you do not print, put unused paper back into the package and keep it on a
level surface. And also, store it avoiding heat, humidity, and direct sunlight.
Notes on Paper for Full-page Borderless Printing
Duplex printing is not available for full-page borderless printing.
You cannot use A5, B5, and Legal-sized paper, and envelopes for full-page borderless printing.
You can use plain paper for full-page borderless printing only when printing from a computer.
However, this may result in lower print quality. We recommend using plain paper for a trial print.

If print results become faint or white streaks appear despite sufficient ink levels, see
Becomes Faint or Colors Are Incorrect .
Replacing Procedure
When you need to replace ink tanks, follow the procedure below.
Important
Handling ink
If you remove an ink tank, replace it immediately. Do not leave the machine with ink tanks removed.
Use new ink tanks for replacement. Installing used ink tanks may cause the nozzles to clog.
Furthermore, with such ink tanks, the machine will not be able to inform you when to replace the ink
tanks properly.
Once an ink tank has been installed, do not remove it from the machine and leave it out in the open.
This will cause the ink tank to dry out, and the machine may not operate properly when it is
reinstalled. To maintain optimal printing quality, use an ink tank within six months of first use.
Note
Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when black-andwhite printing is specified.
Every ink is also consumed in the standard cleaning and deep cleaning of the Print Head, which
may be necessary to maintain the machine's performance. When an ink tank is out of ink, replace it
immediately with a new one.
For details, see Tips on How to Use Your Machine .

Tips on How to Use Your Machine
This section introduces the tips on how to use your machine 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 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.
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 textbased 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.
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.
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.
See Replacing an Ink Tank .
Printing on special paper: How to print with optimal quality!?
Tip!: Check the machine 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 machine smeared with ink?
Tips on How to Use Your Machine
Page 118 of 941 pages
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 the 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?
When loading paper in the Rear Tray or Cassette, make sure the orientation of paper.
Rear Tray
Cassette
To load paper in the Rear Tray, load paper
with the printing side facing you.
To load paper in the Cassette, load paper with the
printing side facing down.
Is the paper curled?
The curled paper causes paper jam. Flatten the curled paper, then reload it.
Refer to " 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 for Type with the Operation Panel or Media
Type with the printer driver. If the type of paper is not selected, you may not be able to get the
satisfactory print result.
See Media Types You Can Use .
There are various types of paper: paper with special coating on the surface for printing photos with
optimal quality and paper suitable for documents. Type of the Operation Panel or 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 Type (or Media Type) suitable for each type of loaded paper.
Use the Stop button to cancel printing!
Tip!: 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.
Note
Stop button while printing from a computer, open
If you cannot cancel printing by pressing the
the printer driver setup window to delete the unnecessary print jobs from the printer status
monitor.
Does the machine need to be handled with care when using or
transporting?
Tip!: Do not use or transport the machine vertically or slanted!
Tips on How to Use Your Machine
If the machine is used or transported vertically or slanted, the machine may become damaged or
ink may leak from the machine.
Be sure not to use or transport the machine vertically or slanted.
Tip!: 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.
Tip!: Carefully choose the area to place the machine!
Place the machine at least 5.91 inches / 15 cm away from other electrical appliances such as
fluorescent lamps. If the machine is placed closer to those, it may not be able to work properly due
to fluorescent noises.
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 disconnect the power plug.
1. Press the ON button on the machine to turn it off.
2. Make sure that the POWER lamp is not lit.
3. Disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet.
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 lamp is turned off, the Print Head will not be capped properly and this will cause
drying or clogging.
To disconnect the power plug, 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 machine has not
been used for a long time.
We recommend you to use the machine at least once a month.

Page 120 of 941 pages
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.
Colors are uneven, and print results are blurred.
Tip!: Print the nozzle check pattern to check if the nozzles are
clogged.
If the print head nozzles are clogged, colors may become uneven or the print results may be blurred.
In this case
Print the nozzle check pattern
Check the printed check pattern to see if the nozzles are clogged.

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.
For PREMIUM Contents Print using premium content images, if you save the file and move it to
another computer, you will not be able to open the file.

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 message for media selection appears.
When you are using plain paper for test printing, select Plain Paper, and click OK.
Expanding the Range of the Document to Print
Setting a large amount of extension allows you to perform borderless printing with no problems.
However, the portion of the document extending off the paper range will not be printed. Subjects around
the perimeter of a photo may not be printed.
Try borderless printing once. When you are not satisfied with the result of borderless printing, reduce the
amount of extension. The extension amount decreases as the Amount of Extension slider is moved to
the left.
Important
When the amount of extension is decreased, an unexpected margin may be produced on the print,
depending on the size of the paper.

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.
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 sRGB data 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
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.

What Is ScanGear (Scanner Driver)?
ScanGear (scanner driver) is software required for scanning documents. It enables you to specify the
output size and make image corrections when scanning.
ScanGear can be started from MP Navigator EX or from other applications that are compatible with a
standard interface called TWAIN. (ScanGear is a TWAIN-compatible driver.)
What You Can Do with This Software
This software enables you to preview scan results or set document type and output size, etc. when
scanning documents. It is useful when you want to scan in a specific color tone, as it allows you to make
various corrections and adjust brightness, contrast, etc.
Screens
There are three modes: Basic Mode, Advanced Mode and Auto Scan Mode.
Switch modes by clicking a tab on the upper right of the screen.
Note
ScanGear starts in the last used mode.

Adjusting Colors Using a Color Pattern
You can preview color changes and reproduce natural colors by using the color pattern function in
ScanGear (scanner driver)'s Basic Mode tab.
Color Adjustment
Correct colors that have faded with time or due to colorcast. "Colorcast" is a phenomenon where a
specific color affects the entire picture due to the weather or ambient strong colors.
Adjusting Colors Using a Color Pattern
Page 666 of 941 pages
Click an arrow in Color Adjustment to emphasize the corresponding color.
Cyan & red, magenta & green and yellow & blue are complementary color pairs (each pair produces a
shade of gray when mixed). You can reproduce the natural colors of the scene by reducing the cast color
and increasing the complementary color.
It is recommended that you find a portion in the image where it should be white, and adjust the colors so
that the portion turns white.
Preview image appears in the center. Preview image colors change as you adjust them.
Below is an example of correcting a bluish image.
Since Blue and Green are too strong, click the Yellow and Magenta arrows to correct.

Note
Color adjustments are applied only to the scan area (cropping frame) or the frame selected in
thumbnail view.
You can select multiple frames or cropping frames by clicking them while pressing the Ctrl key.
You can also select a color tone from the color pattern displayed on the left of the Color Pattern
screen.

Resolution

Resolution
What is 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 (2.54
cm).
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less
detail.
Setting the Resolution in MP Navigator EX
In MP Navigator EX, you can specify the resolution with Scanning Resolution in the Scan Settings dialog
box.
Images for Display on a Monitor
Paper/photographs to be viewed on a display should be scanned at 150 dpi, which is close to ordinary
monitor resolution.
Images for Printing
Images to be printed should be scanned at a resolution that corresponds to the resolution of the printer.
For example, if you want to print using a 600 dpi black and white printer, you should set the resolution to
600 dpi.
With a color printer, specifying the resolution at half the resolution of the printer should be fine. For
example, if you want to print scanned paper/photos using a 600 dpi color printer, you should set the
resolution to 300 dpi. However, with a high-resolution printer, printing takes longer than usual if you set
the resolution to half the resolution of the printer.
Example of Appropriate Resolution when Printing to Scale
If you print a document at twice the size both vertically and horizontally, the resolution of the document will
be reduced by half. If the resolution of the original document is 300 dpi, the resolution of the enlarged
document will be 150 dpi. If you print the document with a 600 dpi color printer, the lack of detail in the
image may be obvious. In that case, if you scan at the Scanning Resolution of 600 dpi, the resolution will
be 300 dpi even if you double the size of document and you can print the document with sufficient quality.
Conversely, if you print a document at half scale, it should be sufficient to scan at half the resolution.

Setting the Resolution in ScanGear (Scanner Driver)
In ScanGear, you can specify the resolution with Output Resolution in Output Settings on the Advanced
Mode tab.
Example of Appropriate Resolution when Printing to Scale
The scanning resolution is automatically set so that the value set in Output Resolution will be the
resolution of the scanned image. If you set Output Resolution to 300 dpi and scan at twice the size, the
document will be automatically scanned at 600 dpi, and the resolution of the scanned image will be 300
dpi. You can print the document with sufficient quality using a 600 dpi color printer.

cannot be returned to their original state.
JPEG is not available for black and white images.
Exif (Standard File Extension: .jpg)
A file format supported by many digital cameras.
It adds information such as the date of image capture, camera model, shutter speed, shooting mode
and comments to JPEG files.
The file format version must be Exif 2.2 or later in order to print on a Direct Print compatible printer.
TIFF (Standard File Extension: .tif)
A file format featuring a relatively high compatibility between various computers and applications. (Some
TIFF files are incompatible.) TIFF is suitable for editing saved images.
Note
MP Navigator EX supports the following TIFF file formats.
- Uncompressed, black and white binary
- Uncompressed, RGB (8 bits per channel)
- Uncompressed, YCC (8 bits per component)
- Uncompressed, RGB (16 bits per channel)
- Uncompressed, YCC (16 bits per component)
- Uncompressed, Grayscale
PDF (Standard File Extension: .pdf)
A file format developed by Adobe Systems. It can be used on various computers and operating systems.
Therefore, PDF files can be exchanged between people who use different operating systems, fonts, etc.
regardless of the differences.
Important
Only PDF files created with MP Navigator EX are supported. PDF files created or edited in other
applications are not supported.

4. Complete cleaning
The Nozzle Check dialog box opens after the confirmation message.
5. 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.

The Nozzle Check dialog box opens after the confirmation message.
5. Check the results
To check whether the print quality has improved, click Print Check Pattern. To cancel the check
process, click Cancel.
Important
Cleaning consumes a small amount of ink. Deep Cleaning consumes a larger amount of ink than

perform cleaning only when necessary.
Note
If there is no sign of improvement after Deep Cleaning, switch off the machine, wait 24 hours, and
then perform Deep Cleaning again. If there is still no sign of improvement, the ink may have run out
or the print head may be worn. For details on the remedial action to be taken, see "

Print Results Not Satisfactory
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.
The method of confirming the paper and print quality settings differs depending on what you do with
your machine.

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
case, load the paper with the other side facing up. It may resolve the problem.
We recommend putting unused paper back into the package and keeping it on a level surface.
For Other Paper
If the curl on the four corners of the paper is more than 0.1 inch / 3 mm (A) in height, the paper
may be smudged or may not be fed properly. In such cases, follow the procedure described
below to correct the paper curl.
Page 841 of 941 pages
Paper Is Smudged/Printed Surface Is Scratched
1. Roll up the paper in the opposite direction to the paper curl as shown below.
2. Check that the paper is now flat.
We recommend printing curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.
Note
Depending on the media type, the paper may be smudged or may not be fed properly even if it
is not curled inward. In such cases, follow the procedure described below to curl the paper
outward within 0.1 inch / 3 mm (B) in height before printing. This may improve the print result.
(C) Printing side
We recommend printing paper that has been curled outward one sheet at a time.
Check 4: If you are printing on thick paper, select the Prevent paper
abrasion setting.
Selecting the Prevent paper abrasion setting will widen the clearance between the Print Head and

Instructions for Use (Printer Driver)
This printer driver is subject to the following restrictions. Keep the following points in mind when using
the printer driver.
Restrictions on the Printer Driver
Depending on the document type to be printed, the paper feed method specified in the printer driver
may not operate correctly.
If this happens, open the printer driver setup window from the Print dialog box of the application
software, and check the setting in the Paper Source field on the Main tab.
With some applications, the Copies setting in the Page Setup tab of the printer driver may not be
enabled.
In this case, use the copies setting in the Print dialog box of the application software.
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
functions will not operate.
Preview before printing on the Main tab
Prevent loss of print data in the Print Options dialog box
Page Layout, Poster, Booklet, Duplex Printing (manually), Specify Margin..., Print from Last Page,
Collate, and Stamp/Background... (Stamp...) on the Page Setup tab
Since the resolution in the preview display differs from the printing resolution, text and lines in the
preview display may appear different from the actual print result.
With some applications, the printing is divided into multiple print jobs.
To cancel printing, delete all divided print jobs.
If image data is not printed correctly, display the Print Options dialog box from the Page Setup tab
and change the setting of Disable ICM required from the application software. This may solve the
problem.
Note
Disable ICM required from the application software cannot be used when the XPS printer driver
is used.
Using the Bluetooth option under the following conditions may lock the print job with "Printing"
displayed in the status monitor, even if printing has completed and the printout is ejected. If this
happens, either click the Cancel Printing button on the status monitor or cancel that print job from
the print job queue of the printer.
When you move the machine during printing to a location where radio waves cannot reach or
when the radio wave status becomes poor
When you turn off the machine
When you are using a Bluetooth printer and you cancel printing after a printer error occurs, you may
not be able to execute subsequent printing operations. If this happens, turn off the machine and turn
it back on again.
Page 903 of 941 pages
Instructions for Use (Printer Driver)
Page 904 of 941 pages
When you are using Bluetooth, you cannot use the operation panel on the machine while the status
monitor is displayed from View Printer Status... on the Maintenance tab.
The card slot (memory card) of the machine may become inaccessible. In such cases, restart the
machine or turn it off and reconnect the USB cable.
Points to Note with Applications

When Microsoft Word has the same printing functions as the printer driver, use Word to specify
them.
When selecting Fit-to-Page, Scaled, or Page Layout from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup
tab, the selected printing function may not be effective, depending on the version of Word.
If this happens, follow the procedure below.
1. Open Word's Print dialog box.
2. Open the printer driver setup window, specify Page Layout on the Page Setup tab, and click
OK.
3. Without starting printing, close the Print dialog box.
4. Open Word's Print dialog box again.
5. Open the printer driver setup window again and click OK.

General Notes (Scanner Driver)
ScanGear (scanner driver) is subject to the following restrictions. Keep these points in mind when using
it.
Scanner Driver Restrictions
When using the NTFS file system, the TWAIN data source may not be invoked. This is because the
TWAIN module cannot be written to the winnt folder for security reasons. Contact the computer's
administrator for help.
Some computers (including laptops) connected to the machine may not resume correctly from
standby mode. In that case, restart the computer.
Do not connect two or more machines or multifunction printers with scanner function to the same
computer simultaneously. If multiple scanning devices are connected, you cannot scan from the
Operation Panel of the machine and also may experience errors while accessing the devices.
Use the default display font size of the OS. Otherwise, software screens may not appear correctly.
Scanning may fail if the computer has resumed from sleep or standby mode. In that case, follow
these steps and scan again.
1. Turn off the machine.
2. Exit ScanGear, then disconnect the USB cable from the computer and reconnect it.
3. Turn on the machine.
ScanGear cannot be opened in multiple applications at the same time. Within an application,
ScanGear cannot be opened for the second time when it is already open.
Be sure to close the ScanGear window before closing the application.
Make sure that you have adequate disk space available when scanning large images at high
resolutions. For example, at least 300 MB of free space is required to scan an A4 document at 600
dpi in full-color.
ScanGear and WIA driver cannot be used at the same time.
Do not enter the computer into sleep or hibernate state during scanning.
Calibration may take time if the machine is connected via USB 1.1.
Applications with Restrictions on Use
If you start Media Center included in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, you may not be able to
scan using the Operation Panel of the machine. In that case, restart the computer.
You cannot scan images with Media Center included in Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows
XP Media Center Edition 2005. Scan with other applications such as MP Navigator EX.
In some applications, if you select the View scanned images checkbox on the Auto Scan Mode tab of
ScanGear, the window displaying the thumbnails of the scanned images may close automatically.
Some applications may not display the TWAIN user interface. In that case, refer to the application's
manual and change the settings accordingly.
Some applications do not support continuous scanning of multiple documents. In some cases, only
the first scanned image is accepted, or multiple images are scanned as one image.
To import scanned images into Microsoft Office 2000, first save them using MP Navigator EX, then
import the saved files from the Insert menu.
When scanning platen size images into Microsoft Office 2003 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), click
Page 905 of 941 pages
General Notes (Scanner Driver)
Page 906 of 941 pages
Custom Insert in the Insert Picture from Scanner or Camera screen. Otherwise, images may not be
scanned correctly.
When scanning images into Microsoft Office 2007 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), use Microsoft Clip
Organizer.
Images may not be scanned correctly in some applications. In that case, increase the operating
system's virtual memory and retry.
When image size is too large (such as when scanning large images at high resolution), your
computer may not respond or the progress bar may remain at 0% depending on the application. In
that case, cancel the action (for example by clicking Cancel on the progress bar), then increase the
operating system's virtual memory or reduce the image size/resolution and retry. Alternatively, scan
the image via MP Navigator EX first, then save and import it into the application.

Printable area
: 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.
Duplex printing is not available when performing Borderless Printing.
For Borderless Printing, use the following paper:
Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" GP-501
Photo Paper Glossy GP-502
Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss SG-201
Photo Paper Pro Platinum PT-101
Photo Paper Plus Glossy II PP-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.
Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only
for test printing. You can perform Borderless Printing on plain paper only when printing from
your computer.
Borderless Printing is not available for legal, A5, or B5 sized paper, or envelopes.
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.
With performing Automatic Duplex Printing and Duplex (Two-sided) Copying, the printable area will
be 0.08 inches / 2 mm smaller at the top margin.
When performing borderless copying or borderless printing from a printed photo, you can specify
the amount of images that extends off the paper by Extended copy amount in Print settings.
