Print media handling
• Paper types you cannot use
Do not use the following:
– Creased print media
– Curled print media
– Wrinkled print media
– Moist print media
– Print media that is too thin (It should be at least 17 lb. or 64 g/m2.)
– Print media that is too thick (It should not be more than 28 lb. or 105 g/m2, except for
Canon print media.)
– Print media with holes (e.g. punched holes)
– Postcards with photographs or stickers adhered to them
• Hold the print media as closely as possible to its edges and try not to touch the printing
surface. Printing quality will deteriorate if the printing surface is damaged or becomes dirty.
• Do not touch the printing surface until the ink has dried.
• Some print media may curl and the printing surface may smudge if you have used a large
amount of ink for printing. If this occurs, move the paper thickness lever to the right. Paper
that tends to curl is not recommended for printing photographs or graphics. Use for
printing mainly text.
• Do not use print media that is in bad condition ( above). If the print media is curled,
uncurl it before printing.
• Place the print media you have not used back into its packet and store out of direct sunlight
in a place where temperature and humidity is low.
• Photo Paper Pro guidelines
– Do not touch the printed surface until the ink is fixed (approx. 30 minutes). Colors in dark
images may appear indistinct at first, but will become clearer after about 30 minutes.
– Images may smudge if you place them in an album before the ink is completely dry. It is
recommended that you allow the ink to dry for 24 hours.
– Do not attempt to dry the ink with a hairdryer or by exposing printed sheets to direct
sunlight.
– Do not store or display printouts in hot, damp, or humid conditions. Never expose them to
heat or direct sunlight.
– Store printouts in photo albums, photo frames, or presentation binders to protect them
from direct exposure to air or sunlight.
– Do not mount printouts in an adhesive-type album as you may not be able to remove
them.
– Be aware that some types of clear plastic folders and albums may cause the edges of the
paper to turn yellow.
Setting the paper thickness lever
The paper thickness lever adjusts the gap between the printhead and the print media to suit
the print media’s thickness. Before printing, be sure to set the paper thickness lever.
Follow this procedure to set the paper thickness lever:
1
Open the inner cover.
• The printhead holder moves to the left.
2
Move the paper thickness lever to the
appropriate setting.
• For details on which position to set for the
print media you are using, see p. 3-1 to p. 3-5.

blank. However before replacing, refer to the flow chart on p. 9-5 to check if print quality
deterioration is due to another problem.
Guidelines
CAUTION
• Keep the printhead and ink tanks out of the reach of children. If a child inadvertently ingests
ink, consult a physician immediately.
• Ink tanks compatible with the machine are as follows:
– Black ink tank: BCI-24 Black
– Color ink tank: BCI-24 Color
• To ensure optimum printing results and to avoid printing problems, Canon recommends
using original Canon ink tanks only. Damage caused by using refilled ink tanks is not
covered by Canon’s warranty.
• Replaced ink tanks should be new. If you install partially used ink tanks, the nozzles may
block and the ink counter may not be accurate.
• For best ink quality, use ink tanks within one year of purchase. After placing ink tanks in the
machine, use the ink tanks within six months.
• Do not open the ink tank packaging until ready to install.
• Do not touch printed paper with wet hands or spill liquids on it as the ink may run.

Problems using a memory card
See the information below if the memory card is not recognized when inserted into the
card slot, or if the image data is not being read.
Memory card is not recognized.
1. Is the memory card securely inserted into the card slot?
When securely inserted, a PCMCIA-compatible memory card will click into position and the [EJECT]
button will protrude a maximum of a ! / 4 inch (7 mm) from the slot.
Correct
Incorrect
2. The memory card is not recognized although it is inserted securely into the card slot.
Remove and reinsert the memory card as explained on p. 8-2.
3. Are there any images on the memory card?
Check if there is any image data on the memory card using your digital camera or computer.
4. Is the image data valid?
If standby mode is displayed in photo print mode, there are valid images on the memory card. If a
message is displayed, see p. 10-13.
5. Try again with another memory card.
1. Try with another memory card and if you do not experience a problem, the first memory card
may be damaged. In this case, reformat the memory card with the digital camera.
When you reformat the memory card with the digital camera, all the data on the memory card
will be deleted. If you can read image data on the computer, reformat the memory card after you
have backed up the image data.
2. If you still have problems with another memory card, the PC card adapter may be defective, or
the card is having difficulties operating with the machine. Try again with a recommended
memory card and PC card adapter.

If nothing displays in the LCD (if there is no
power)
When you connect the power cord to the machine and wall outlet, and press
[ON/OFF], the machine powers up and a message is displayed in the LCD.
While the Alarm light blinks, the machine is initializing and you will not be able to use it. Wait
until the Alarm light stops blinking.
If nothing is displayed in the LCD, make the checks in the following order until something is
displayed.
1. Is the power cord correctly connected?
Securely connect the power cord to the machine and wall outlet.
2. Have you pressed [ON/OFF]?
The machine will power up and the LCD will show a message when you connect the power cord
and press [ON/OFF].
3. Check that the wall outlet is working normally.
Connect another electrical appliance to the wall outlet and check whether the wall outlet is working
properly.
4. Connect the power cord directly to the wall outlet.
Disconnect the power cord from any table taps, OA taps or extension cords and connect directly to
the wall outlet. If the machine powers up when the power cord is connected directly, the table taps,
OA taps or extension cords are probably defective and should be replaced.
If they have a power switch, turn it on.
5. Check that the power cord is not defective.
Either replace the power cord with another, or using a tester, check whether the cord is defective.

Canon U.S.A., Inc.
Limited Warranty—U.S. Only
The limited warranty set forth below is given by Canon U.S.A., Inc. (“Canon”) with respect to the Canon brand computer
peripheral product (the “product”) that you have purchased, when purchased and used in the United States. The product that you
have purchased is the only product to which this warranty card and the limited warranty provided by Canon and stated on the
card apply.
Your product, when delivered to you in new condition in its original container, is warranted against defects in materials or
workmanship as follows: for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase, defective parts or a defective product
returned to a Canon repair facility or a Canon Authorized Service Facility (“ASF”) for such product, as applicable, and proven to be
defective upon inspection, will be exchanged for new or comparable rebuilt parts, or a refurbished product, as determined by the
Canon repair facility or the ASF.
Warranty repair or replacement shall not extend the original warranty period of the defective product. This limited warranty does
not cover any supplies or accessories, including without limitation print heads, ink cartridges and ink tanks, as to which there shall
be no warranty or replacement.
This limited warranty shall only apply if the product is used in conjunction with compatible computer equipment and
compatible software, as to which items Canon shall have no responsibility.
Non-Canon brand equipment and software that may be distributed with the product are sold “as is,” without
warranty of any kind by Canon, including any implied warranty regarding merchantability or fitness for a particular
purpose, and all such warranties are disclaimed. The sole warranty, if any, with respect to such non-Canon brand items is
given by the manufacturer or producer thereof.
This limited warranty covers all defects encountered in normal use of the product, and does not apply in the following
cases:
(a) Loss of or damage to the product due to abuse, mishandling, improper packaging by you, alteration, accident, electrical
current fluctuations, failure to follow operating, maintenance or environmental instructions prescribed in Canon’s instruction
manual, or service performed by other than a Canon repair facility or an ASF.
(b) Use of parts or supplies (other than those sold by Canon) that cause damage to the product or cause abnormally frequent
service calls or service problems.
(c) If the product has had its serial number or dating altered or removed.
NO IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR
A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, APPLIES TO THE PRODUCT AFTER THE APPLICABLE PERIOD OF THE EXPRESS
LIMITED WARRANTY STATED ABOVE, AND NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY OR GUARANTY, EXCEPT AS
MENTIONED ABOVE, GIVEN BY ANY PERSON OR ENTITY WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT SHALL BIND
CANON. (SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE
ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.) CANON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF REVENUES OR
PROFITS, INCONVENIENCE, EXPENSE FOR SUBSTITUTE EQUIPMENT OR SERVICE, STORAGE CHARGES, LOSS OR
CORRUPTION OF DATA, OR ANY OTHER SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY
THE USE OR MISUSE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT, REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY ON WHICH
THE CLAIM IS BASED, AND EVEN IF CANON HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN
NO EVENT SHALL RECOVERY OF ANY KIND AGAINST CANON BE GREATER IN AMOUNT THAN THE PURCHASE
PRICE OF THE PRODUCT SOLD BY CANON WHICH CAUSED THE ALLEGED DAMAGE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE
FOREGOING, YOU ASSUME ALL RISK AND LIABILITY FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY TO YOU AND YOUR
PROPERTY AND TO OTHERS AND THEIR PROPERTY ARISING OUT OF USE OR MISUSE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE
THE PRODUCT NOT CAUSED DIRECTLY BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF CANON. (SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.) THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL NOT EXTEND TO ANYONE OTHER
THAN THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF THE PRODUCT, OR THE PERSON FOR WHOM IT WAS PURCHASED AS A
GIFT, AND STATES YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.
You may obtain technical support* for your product as follows:
• For e-mail technical support, the latest driver downloads and answers to frequently asked questions
(www.usa.canon.com/consumer)
• 24-hour, 7-day-a-week, automated support for troubleshooting issues on most current products
(1-800-423-2366)
• 24-hour, Fax-On-Demand System for product specifications and technical information
(1-800-526-4345)
• Free technical support Monday–Saturday (excluding holidays) for products still under warranty
(1-757-413-2848)
• Technical support 7 days a week (excluding holidays) for products no longer under warranty, at $9.99 per incident
(1-757-413-2848)
If the problem can’t be corrected by using one of the above technical support options, you will be asked to follow the
applicable procedures for warranty service. Note that a dated proof of purchase (bill of sale) is required to verify eligibility at
the time of service. This requirement will be satisfied by providing a copy of your dated bill of sale. You will also need to
supply the product serial number.
InstantExchange†
InstantExchange is a warranty program that expedites, usually by the next business day, †† the exchange of a defective
product with a refurbished product. The refurbished product you receive will be covered by the balance of the period remaining
on your original limited warranty. Note that by using this service you will keep the replacement product that is sent to you,
and your originally purchased product shall become the property of Canon.
InstantExchange warranty program service is available only during the express limited-warranty period for your product and only
in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii during such period.
If the Canon Customer Care Center representative cannot correct the problem with your product over the telephone, and
you elect InstantExchange warranty program service, the representative will issue you a reference number upon verification of
warranty eligibility. You will be asked for information pertaining to your defective product and for a ship-to location for the
replacement product (street address only). You must also provide a major credit card number that will be pre-authorized by
Canon in an amount up to the cost of a new product at the time you elect InstantExchange warranty program service. Your
credit card number will be charged in an amount up to the cost of a new product (i) if you do not return your defective
product to a Canon repair facility by the date specified by Canon and in the manner described below; (ii) if the defect(s) in the
product is/are not covered by this limited warranty; or (iii) if the warranty period on the product has expired or has not been
sufficiently established by your supplying the appropriate documentation.
The Canon repair facility will ship out the replacement product via overnight courier, prepaid by Canon.
After receipt of the replacement product (with instructions and a pre-paid return waybill), follow the instructions to ship the
defective product to a Canon repair facility. You must return the defective product in the shipping carton in which the
replacement product was packed (be sure to retain your ink cartridges and tanks), and you must include the reference number, a
copy of your dated proof of purchase (bill of sale) and a complete explanation of the problem. Do not include any other items
in the return shipping container.
Carry-In/ Mail-In
Carry-In/Mail-In is a service program by which your defective product is repaired by an ASF. The name and telephone
number of the ASF(s) nearest to your location may be obtained from our Web site at www.usa.canon.com, or by calling the
Canon Customer Care Center at 1-800-423-2366. If shipping is involved, it is your responsibility to properly package and send
your defective product, together with your dated proof of purchase, a complete explanation of the problem and a return address,
to the ASF at your expense. Do not include any other items with your product. The repair(s) covered by this limited warranty
will be made and the product will be returned to you without charge by the ASF. Repairs not covered under this limited warranty
will be charged to you at such costs as each ASF may generally establish from time to time.
This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
* Support program specifics are subject to change without notice.
† InstantExchange warranty program service is subject to availability of refurbished replacement units.
†† 9 a.m.–5 p.m.(local), Monday–Friday (excluding holidays). The Canon Customer Care Center must receive pertinent information by 3 p.m. (E.S.T.)
to ensure next-business-day InstantExchange warranty program service (two-business-day InstantExchange warranty service for Alaska and
Hawaii). Canon does not guarantee next-business-day service in the event of factors beyond Canon’s reasonable control.
