*3 Proper feeding of paper may not be possible at the maximum capacity depending on the type
of paper or environmental conditions (either very high or low temperature and humidity). In
such cases, reduce the sheets of paper you load at a time to around half (around 0.2 inches /
5 mm in paper stack height).

*5 When loading paper in stacks, the print side may be marked as it is fed in or sheets may be
stuck to one another causing them not to be fed properly. In this case, load one sheet at a
time.
*6 We recommend that you remove the previously printed sheet from the Paper Output Tray
before continuously printing to avoid blurs and discoloration.
*7 This paper cannot be used in Macintosh®.
*8 When copying onto sticker paper, be sure to select Sticker copy in Special copy. Refer to
“Copying on Stickers (Sticker copy)” in “Using Useful Copy Functions” of the User’s Guide onscreen manual.

Replacing a FINE Cartridge
This section explains the way to confirm the ink status and the procedure to replace FINE
Cartridges.
When ink runs out or other errors occur, an error message is displayed on the LCD to inform you of
the error. See “An Error Message Is Displayed on the LCD” on page 57 and confirm how to handle it.
When printing from your computer, error messages appear on your computer screen as well.
Note
z If there is no improvement with the quality of printing following such maintenance as Print Head
Cleaning, a FINE Cartridge is probably empty. When ink runs out, replace the FINE Cartridge.
The machine cannot print if the wrong type of FINE Cartridge is used.
z For information on compatible FINE Cartridges, see the back cover of this guide.
„ Getting the Ink Status Information
Note
The ink level detector is mounted on the machine to detect the remaining ink level. The machine
considers as ink is full when a new FINE Cartridge is installed, and then starts to detect a
remaining ink level. If you install a used FINE Cartridge, the indicated ink level of it may not be
correct. In such case, refer to the ink level information only as a guide.
You can check the current ink level by pressing the COPY button, the SCAN button, or the
MEMORY CARD button. The LCD will display the ink level for a few seconds.

(B)
z
z
z
z
(A) Electrical Contacts
(B) Print Head Nozzles
To maintain optimal printing quality, we recommend the use of specified Canon brand FINE
Cartridges.
Refilling ink is not recommended.
Once you remove a FINE Cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the machine with FINE
Cartridges removed.
Replace empty cartridges with new ones. If you insert FINE Cartridges that has been removed
once, the machine may not print out properly due to some reasons such as clogging of the
nozzles.
Furthermore, with such cartridges, the Low Ink Warning may not be displayed 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
z 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. Canon recommends to use new FINE cartridges 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, refer to the PC Printing Guide on-screen
manual.
z Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when black-and
white printing is specified.
Color ink is also consumed in Print Head Cleaning and Print Head Deep Cleaning, which may
be necessary to maintain the machine’s performance.

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, or
– 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 38.
„ 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 the Power lamp has gone out.
This takes a few seconds or as long as around 30 seconds.
(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 the Power lamp goes 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.

Troubleshooting
Print Results Not Satisfactory
If the print result is not satisfactory such as white streaks, misaligned lines, and uneven colors,
confirm the paper and print quality settings first.
z 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 setting may reduce the quality of 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.
z Check 2: Did you set the print quality setting appropriately?
Select a print quality option suitable to the paper and image for printing. If you notice blurs or
uneven colors, increase the print quality setting and try printing again.
* When printing from a PictBridge compliant device, set the print quality setting by using the
Operation Panel on the machine. You cannot make this setting from a PictBridge compliant
device.
* You cannot change the print quality setting when printing from a wireless communication
device.
The method to confirm the paper and print quality settings differs depending on what you do with
your machine.
To copy or to print from your
memory card by operating the
machine
Confirm by using the Operation Panel on the machine. See the
pages where each printing mode is explained in this manual.
To print from a PictBridge

For details on recommended printing area, refer to “Printing Area” in the User’s
Guide on-screen manual.
Paper is curled.
For Plain Paper
Turn the paper over and reload it to print on the other side.
Leaving the paper loaded in the Rear Tray for a long time may cause the paper
to curl. If this happens, load the paper with the other side facing up. It may
resolve the problem.
We recommend putting unused paper back into the package and keep them on
a level surface.
For Other Paper
If you are using paper with either any of the corners or the whole printing
surface curled, the paper may become dirty, not feed properly, or both. Use such
paper after correcting paper curl as follows.
(1)With the printing side (A) facing up, cover the paper with a fresh sheet of
plain paper to avoid staining or scratching the surface.
(2)Roll up the paper in a direction opposite to paper curl as seen below.
