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.

Printing Area
To ensure the best print quality, the printer allows a margin along each edge of media. The actual printable
area will be the area inside these margins.
Recommended printing area
: Canon recommends that you print within this area.
Printable 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
• 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.
• For Borderless Printing, use the following paper:
•
•
•
•
Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" <GP-501/GP-601>
Photo Paper Glossy <GP-601>
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.
• 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.

Replacing an Ink Tank
When remaining ink cautions or errors occur, the Alarm lamp will flash to inform you of the error. Count the
number of flashes and take appropriate action.
If an Error Occurs
Note
• If print results become faint or white streaks appear despite sufficient ink levels, see Maintenance
Procedure.
Replacing Procedure
When you need to replace an ink tank, follow the procedure below.
Important
• If you remove an ink tank, replace it immediately. Do not leave the printer with the ink tank removed.
• Use a new ink tank for replacement. Installing a used ink tank may cause the nozzles to clog.
Furthermore, with such an ink tank, the printer will not be able to inform you when to replace the ink
tank properly.
• Once an ink tank has been installed, do not remove it from the printer and leave it out in the open.
This will cause the ink tank to dry out, and the printer 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 performance of the printer. When an ink tank is out of ink, replace it
immediately with a new one.
Useful Information about Ink
1. Make sure that the power is turned on.
2. Open the print head cover.
The print head holder moves to the replacement position.
121
Caution
• Do not hold the print head holder to stop or move it forcibly. Do not touch the print head holder
until it stops completely.
Important
• Do not place any object on the print head cover. It will fall into the rear tray when the print head
cover is opened and cause the printer to malfunction.
• Do not touch the metallic parts or other parts inside the printer.
• If the print head cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the print head holder moves to the
right. In this case, close and reopen the print head cover.
3. Remove the ink tank with the lamp flashing fast.
Push the tab (A) and lift the ink tank to remove.
Important
• Do not touch other parts besides the ink tanks.
• Handle the ink tank carefully to avoid staining of clothing or the surrounding area.
• Discard the empty ink tank according to the local laws and regulations regarding disposal of
consumables.

Note
• Do not touch the print head lock lever (B).
If you pull up the print head lock lever, lock it again.
Inside View
• Do not remove both ink tanks at the same time. Be sure to replace ink tanks one by one when
replacing both ink tanks.
• For details on ink lamp flashing speed, see Checking the Ink Status with the Ink Lamps.
4. Remove the new ink tank from its packaging, then remove the protective cap (C) from the
bottom of the ink tank.
Important
• Do not touch the electrical contacts (D) on the ink tank.
Doing so can cause the printer to malfunction or become unable to print.
• Shaking ink tanks may cause ink to spill out and stain clothing or the surrounding area. Handle
ink tanks carefully.
• Do not touch the inside of the protective cap (C) or the open ink port (E). The ink may stain your
hands if you touch them.
• Do not reattach the protective cap (C) once you have removed it. Discard it according to the
local laws and regulations regarding disposal of consumables.
• Do not touch the open ink port (E) once the protective cap (C) is removed, as this may prevent
the ink from being ejected properly.

Align the
mark with the
mark.
123
6. Press the
mark on the ink tank until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.

• Install both ink tanks to print. The printer cannot be used unless both ink tanks are installed.
• If the front (innermost) part of the ink tank (F) is sticking up, push down on the Canon logo on
the ink tank. Do not remove the ink tank forcibly.
124
7. Close the print head cover.
Note
• If the Alarm lamp still flashes after the print head cover is closed, take appropriate action.

• When you start printing after replacing the ink tank, the printer starts cleaning the print head
automatically. Do not perform any other operations until the printer completes the cleaning of
the print head. While cleaning is in progress, the POWER lamp is flashing.
• If the print head is out of alignment, as indicated by misaligned printed ruled lines or similar
symptoms, align the print head.

Provides a stronger encryption mechanism through Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
◦ Authentication
WPA2 defines the following authentication methods: WPA2 Personal that can be used without an
authentication server, plus WPA2 Enterprise that do require an authentication server.
This machine supports WPA2 Personal.
◦ Passphrase
This encrypted key is used to perform WPA2 Personal authentication.
The passphrase should be a string of 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters or a 64-digit hexadecimal
value.
213
• WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)
WPS is a standard for easy and secure establishment of a wireless network.
There are 2 primary methods used in the Wi-Fi Protected Setup:
PIN entry: a mandatory method of setup for all WPS certified devices
Push button configuration (PBC): an actual push button on the hardware or through a simulated push
button in the software.
214
Restrictions
If you use a printer over the wireless LAN, the printer may recognize nearby wireless systems, you should
set a network key (WEP or WPA/WPA2) to the access point to encrypt wireless transmission. Wireless
communication with a product that does not comply with the Wi-Fi standard cannot be guaranteed.
Connecting with too many computers may affect the printer performance, such as printing speed.

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 printer 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.
The ink lamp indicates when ink is running low.
You can confirm the status of each ink tank by the ink lamps. Open the print head cover of the printer to
confirm how the ink lamps light or flash.
When the ink is running low, the ink lamp flashes slowly (about 3-second interval) to indicate that the ink
is running low.
Then, when the ink runs out, the ink lamp flashes fast (about 1-second interval) to indicate that the ink
tank needs to be replaced with a new one.
Checking the Ink Status with the Ink Lamps
217
Key Points to Successful Printing
Check the printer 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 printer smeared with ink?
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 printer with Bottom Plate Cleaning.
Set the paper thickness lever according to type of loaded paper.
Set this lever to the right for normal use.
Set this lever to the left when printing on thick paper such as envelopes.
Loading Envelopes
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 PRINT 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
218
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, 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.
219
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 printer and you may not be able to continue to print.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel printing.
220
Printer Handling Precautions
Do not place any object on the print head cover!
Do not place any object on the print head cover. It will fall into the rear tray when the print head cover is
opened and cause the printer to malfunction. Also, place the printer where objects will not fall on it.
221
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 printer caps the print head (nozzles) automatically to
prevent from drying. If you unplug the power cord from the wall outlet before the POWER lamp is not lit,
the print head will not be capped properly and this will cause drying or clogging.
When unplugging the power cord, make sure that the POWER 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 printer has not been used for a long time.
We recommend you to use the printer 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.
222
Precautions for Safe Transport of the Printer
When relocating the printer, make sure of the following.
Important
• Pack the printer in a sturdy box, using sufficient protective material to ensure safe transport.
• With the print head and ink tank left installed in the printer, press the ON button to turn off the power.
This allows the printer to automatically cap the print head, thus preventing it from drying.
• Do not transport or store the printer with the front of printer (the paper output slot cover side) down as
shown below.
• Before shipping the printer by a delivery service:
• Tape the lid of the box securely with strong tape.
• Clearly label the box as "FRAGILE" or "HANDLE WITH CARE".
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Confirm that the POWER lamp is off and unplug the power cord.
Important
• Do not unplug the printer while the POWER lamp is lit or flashing, as it may cause malfunction or
damage to the printer, making the printer unable to print.
3. Retract the paper support, then close the rear tray cover and paper output slot cover.
4. Unplug the printer cable from the computer and from the printer, then unplug the universal
AC adapter from the printer.
When the battery is not used for a long period of time (6 months or longer), remove the battery from the
printer. For details on how to remove the battery, refer to the battery's instruction manual.
5. Use adhesive tape to secure all the covers on the printer to keep them from opening during
transportation. Then pack the printer in the plastic bag.
6. Attach the protective material to both sides of the printer when packing the printer 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.
260
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.

Printing Stops Before It Is Completed
Check1
Is the paper loaded?
Make sure that paper is loaded.
If the printer has run out of paper, load paper.
Check2
Do the printing documents have lots of photographs or illustrations?
As printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to process, the
printer may appear to have stopped operating.
In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the printer may
pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.
Note
• If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing
may pause to allow the ink to dry.
Check3
Has the printer been printing continuously for a long period?
If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the print head or other parts around it may overheat.
The printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.
In this case, wait for a while without operation. If the printing still does not resume, interrupt your print session at
a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.
Caution
• The print head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the printer. Never touch the
print head or nearby components.

Problems with Printing Quality
Print Results Not Satisfactory
Ink Is Not Ejected
332
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.
Check1
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 printer.

Check3
Load the paper after correcting its curl.
We recommend putting unused paper back into the package and keeping it on a level surface.
• 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.
• 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.
339
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.
Check4
Is the paper thickness lever set properly?
Adjust the position of the paper thickness lever properly according to the type of paper you are printing on.
For details on how to load paper or the position of the paper thickness lever:
Loading Paper
Depending on the printing content, the printing surface may become scratched or the corners or edges of the
paper may become smudged even for the types of paper to set the lever to the right. In this case, set the paper
thickness lever to the left.
340
Reset the paper thickness lever to the right when you finish printing. If the paper thickness lever is not set back
to the right, the inside of the printer is more likely to get dirty due to the wider clearance between the print head
and the loaded paper. It may also reduce print quality.
Check5
If the intensity is set high, reduce the intensity setting and try printing again.
If you are using plain paper to print images with high intensity, the paper may absorb too much ink and become
wavy, causing paper abrasion.
