Important
• When handling the roll, be careful not to soil the printing surface. This may affect the printing quality. We
recommend wearing clean cloth gloves when handling rolls to protect the printing surface.
• Use scissors or a cutting tool to cut the edge of the roll paper if it is uneven, dirty, or has tape residue.
Otherwise, it may cause feeding problems and affect the printing quality. Be careful not to cut through
any barcodes printed on the roll.
• Align the edges of the paper on both ends of the roll. Misalignment may cause feeding problems.

Printing on Oversized Paper
Except in borderless printing, the actual printing area corresponds to your selected paper size minus the space for
a margin. (→P.75) To print documents or images you prepare without a margin at actual size, use an oversized
paper size.
For example, to print a A4-sized original without a margin at A4 size, print it on paper larger than A4 size and
cut away the excess margin.
Note
• If you prepare an original for printing without a margin and print it on paper of regular size, the image
near the edge will not be printed.
Oversize
The margin required by the printer is added around the “outside” of a regular paper size. For example, when
printing a A4-sized original (210×297 mm), you have the following options.
• (a) Regular paper size: Gray area not printed
• (b) Page Size
• (c) Oversized paper size: Print area matches the page size (b)
Important
• When printing on oversize paper, load paper larger than the page size-a size that includes the margin
required by the printer.
• Sheets: Load paper that is at least 6 mm (0.24 in) wider and 26 mm (1 in) higher than the page size
• Rolls: Load paper that is at least 6 mm (0.24 in) wider and 6 mm (0.24 in) higher than the page size
Note
• Paper larger than the maximum size supported by the printer cannot be used as paper for oversized
printing. (→P.100)
• Oversized printing (selecting Oversize in Page Size) is only available in Windows. For oversized
printing on sheets, choose Manual as Paper Source.
• To perform oversized printing on a Macintosh computer, you must specify a non-standard page size and
print on it.
• To specify a non-standard paper size in oversized printing, register the paper size as a Custom Paper
Size. Oversized printing is not available with “Custom Size”. (→P.261)

Borderless Printing at Actual Size
Take advantage of borderless printing to print documents such as posters (made up mainly of photos or images)
without a surrounding margin, or border.
Borderless Printing
In regular printing, a margin required by the printer is added around the original. With borderless printing, you
can print documents without the margin, so that the printed image covers the entire surface of the paper.
Important
• Borderless printing is only available with rolls.
• Paper you can use for borderless printing is restricted to particular types of paper and rolls of particular
widths. For information on types of paper compatible with borderless printing, refer to the Paper
Reference Guide. (→P.95)
• Paper incompatible with the printer’s auto cut function can be printed without borders on the left and
right sides only.
• These features cannot be used in combination with borderless printing: special page layouts, centering
originals, and printing cut lines on rolls.
• You cannot have pages rotated 90 degrees to conserve paper if you have set up borderless printing at
actual size or in combination with resizing originals to match the paper size.
• When borderless printing is used, the edge of the paper is cut during printing. Thus, ink density may be
uneven at the edges. If you require higher image quality, specify No in Auto Cut in the printer driver. In
this case, the paper can be printed without borders on the left and right sides only. After ejecting and
cutting the printed document, use scissors to cut away the top and bottom edges.
• By factory default, the ink drying time is disabled for all paper. When you are using paper that takes
longer for ink to adhere for borderless printing and the Cutter Unit touches printing surfaces that are not
dry yet, it may damage the paper or the edge of the document that is cut, depending on frequency of
use. In this case, follow these steps to change the ink drying time.
• On the Main sheet of the printer driver, click Settings in Media Type.
• Select the ink drying time in the Between Pages list of Drying Time.
Borderless Printing Method
Choose the method of borderless printing that suits the original, as desired.
Enhanced Printing Options 225

Print Image with Actual Size
Prints originals at actual size, without enlarging or reducing them. Originals must be prepared in a size that
exceeds the dimensions of the paper by 3 mm (0.12 in) on each side.
Note
• Not all page sizes are available.
• Even if you prepare originals of the same size as the paper size, the originals are automatically enlarged
when you print borderlessly in combination with resizing originals to match the paper size. This may
affect image quality. When image quality is most important, make the original 3 mm longer on each side
than the paper size so that the image can be printed at actual size in borderless printing.
For instructions on borderless printing of photos and images at actual size, refer to the following topics, as
appropriate for your computer and operating system.
• Borderless Printing at Actual Size (Windows) (→P.227)

Borderless Printing on Paper of Equivalent Size
Take advantage of borderless printing to print documents such as posters (made up mainly of photos or images)
without a surrounding margin, or border.
Borderless Printing
In regular printing, a margin required by the printer is added around the original. With borderless printing, you
can print documents without the margin, so that the printed image covers the entire surface of the paper.
Important
• Borderless printing is only available with rolls.
• Paper you can use for borderless printing is restricted to particular types of paper and rolls of particular
widths. For information on types of paper compatible with borderless printing, refer to the Paper
Reference Guide. (→P.95)
• Paper incompatible with the printer’s auto cut function can be printed without borders on the left and
right sides only.
• These features cannot be used in combination with borderless printing: special page layouts, centering
originals, and printing cut lines on rolls.
• You cannot have pages rotated 90 degrees to conserve paper if you have set up borderless printing at
actual size or in combination with resizing originals to match the paper size.
• When borderless printing is used, the edge of the paper is cut during printing. Thus, ink density may be
uneven at the edges. If you require higher image quality, specify No in Auto Cut in the printer driver. In
this case, the paper can be printed without borders on the left and right sides only. After ejecting and
cutting the printed document, use scissors to cut away the top and bottom edges.
• By factory default, the ink drying time is disabled for all paper. When you are using paper that takes
longer for ink to adhere for borderless printing and the Cutter Unit touches printing surfaces that are not
dry yet, it may damage the paper or the edge of the document that is cut, depending on frequency of
use. In this case, follow these steps to change the ink drying time.
• On the Main sheet of the printer driver, click Settings in Media Type.
• Select the ink drying time in the Between Pages list of Drying Time.

Printing on Non-Standard Paper Sizes
By specifying the paper size, you can print on non-standard sizes of paper.
There are two ways to print on non-standard paper sizes, as follows.
Registering non-standard paper size in the printer driver
After you register non-standard paper sizes, they are listed with standard sizes so that you can choose
them anytime as needed.
Note
• These non-standard paper sizes you register in the printer driver are called Custom Paper Size in
Windows and “Custom Sizes” in Mac OS X.
Specifying custom paper sizes for temporary use
Because these are sizes you specify temporarily in the printer driver, the sizes will not be available after you
exit the application. If you want to set up a non-standard paper size so that it will always be available, we
recommend registering the paper size in the printer driver.
Note
• These temporary paper sizes you register on the printer are called “Custom Sizes” in Windows.
• This can only be congured in Windows.
For instructions on specifying non-standard paper sizes for printing, refer to the following topics, as
appropriate for your computer and operating system.

Conguring the IP Address on the Printer
You must congure the printer’s IP address before using the printer in a TCP/IP network.
The printer’s IP address is congured automatically when you install the printer driver following the
instructions in the Setup Guide.
Congure the IP address by using imagePROGRAF Device Setup Utility, the printer Control Panel, or ARP or
PING commands, if the IP address is changed, or if you change the printer connection mode to a network
connection. For details on conguring the IP address, refer to the following topics.
• Conguring the IP Address Using imagePROGRAF Device Setup Utility (→P.564)
• Conguring the IP Address Using the Printer Control Panel (→P.565)
• Conguring the IP Address Using ARP and PING Commands (→P.567)
Important
• If you use a DHCP server for automatic assignment of the printer’s IP address, printing may no longer
be possible after the printer is turned off and on. This is because an IP address different from before
has been assigned. Thus, when using DHCP server functions, consult your network administrator and
congure the settings in one of the following ways.
• Congure the setting for dynamic DNS updating
In RemoteUI, activate the setting Enable DNS Dynamic Update. (→P.570)
• Congure the setting for assignment of the same IP address each time the printer starts up
Note
• We recommend conguring the printer’s IP address even if you will use the printer in networks other
than TCP/IP networks. Conguring the printer’s IP address enables you to use RemoteUI to congure
the network settings and manage the printer with a web browser.
For details on RemoteUI, see “Using RemoteUI”. (→P.569)

Specifying NetWare Print Services
Before printing in a NetWare network, you must congure print services such as print servers, print queues, and
so on. You can congure the print service settings from a computer using any of the following Novell software
provided with NetWare.
• NWADMIN
• PCONSOLE
Important
• If you use NWADMIN to congure the print service settings, Novell Client (the Novell NetWare client
software) must be installed as the client software application.
• NetWare networking is unsupported in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
This topic gives instructions for conguring NetWare print services. The order of this procedure may vary
depending on the environment.
Choosing the type of print services
Before completing print service settings, choose the type of print service. Refer to the following descriptions
as needed.
Note
• In NetWare 5.1 or 6.0, NDPS may also be used as the print service. If you use NDPS, use the Novell
printer gateway included with NetWare. For details on conguring NDPS, refer to the NetWare
documentation.
• NDS (Novell Directory Service) and bindery
NDS and bindery are both supported. Use the mode that is compatible with your network environment.
• Queue server mode and remote printer mode
Queue server mode and remote printer mode are both supported.
• Queue server mode
When using queue server mode, all print server functions are supported, so there is no need for
other print server software or hardware. In NDS queue server mode (NDS PServer), the NDS
print server is used for printing. In bindery queue server mode (Bindery PServer), the bindery print
server is used for printing. Note that if you use queue server mode, a NetWare user license is
required for each network interface.
• Remote printer mode
In remote printer mode, the printer is controlled by the NetWare print server. Thus, a NetWare
print server is required. In NDS remote printer mode (NPrinter), the NDS print server is used for
printing, and in bindery remote printer mode (RPrinter), the bindery print server is used for printing.

Other problems
If the Printer Makes a Strange Sound
Cause
Corrective Action
The printer makes a sound during
operation.
The following sounds do not indicate a problem with the printer.
• There is a sound of suction from the Platen
To prevent paper from rising, paper is held against the Platen by
suction from Vacuum holes under it.
• There is a sound when a different size of paper is used and when
the Carriage goes from side to side
When paper of a different size is used, a valve is automatically
activated to switch the area for paper suction, which may make a
sound. This mechanism prevents suction from Vacuum holes where
there is no paper.
In addition, ink is ejected in sync with the movement of the Carriage
back and forth to ensure optimal ink ow. At this time, the valve
automatically switches the area for paper suction, which may make
a sound.
• Roll paper makes a uttering sound during printing
There may be a uttering sound when large paper is advanced.
• If you suddenly hear the tone for cleaning operations
At regular intervals, for printer maintenance, cleaning operations will
begin automatically, even if the printer is in Sleep mode.
• If you suddenly hear the tone for ink agitation
At regular intervals, to ensure optimal printing quality, the ink is
agitated automatically, even if the printer is in Sleep mode. Ink
agitation takes about 30 seconds.
The ink is also agitated automatically under the following conditions.
Note that other operations are not possible while Agitating is
displayed on the control panel.
• After the printer is turned on. (The time for agitation varies
depending on how long the printer was off-between about 30
seconds and two minutes.)
• After data transmission. (After about a minute and a half,
printing operations begin. However, printing may start later
after data reception, depending on the size of print data.)
• After ink tank replacement. (Ink agitation takes about three
and a half minutes.)
In other cases, contact your Canon dealer.

Ink Level Detection
Ink level detection will be deactivated if you load ink tanks once emptied.
Ink level detection
Ink tanks specied for this printer feature an ink level detection function to prevent the ink from running out
during printing, which prevents printer damage. (→P.622)
This function will not work correctly if you use rell ink tanks. As a result, printing stops. Thus, before using
rell ink tanks, you must cancel the ink level detection.
Printing with the ink level detection canceled may lead to printer damage and printing problems. Canon Inc.
is not liable for any damage that may occur as a result of relling ink.
Caution
• After ink level detection has been released, this function cannot be reactivated for currently loaded Ink
Tank. To use ink level detection again, replace the Ink Tank with new ones specied for use with
the printer.
• Repeatedly removing and inserting an Ink Tank may damage the connection between the Ink Tank and
