This document explains how to use AirPrint to print wirelessly from your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to a
Canon printer.
AirPrint enables you to print photos, email, Web pages and documents from your Apple device directly to
your printer without installing a driver.
Checking Your Environment
First, check your environment.
• AirPrint Operation Environment
To use AirPrint, you will need one of the following Apple devices running the latest version of iOS: iPad
(all models), iPhone (3GS or later), or iPod touch (3rd generation or later).
• Network Environment
The Apple device (iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) and this machine must be connected to the same Wi-Fi
network.
Note
If your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch is running the latest version of iOS, you do not need to download
and install any drivers or additional software.
Printing with AirPrint
1. Check that this machine is turned on and is connected to the LAN.
2. From the application software of your Apple device, tap the operation icon to display
the menu options.
3. From the menu options, tap Print.
4. From Printer Options, select the model that you are using.
Important
Because some application software does not support AirPrint, Printer Options may not be
displayed. If an application software does not let you use printer options, you cannot print from
that application software.
Note
The printer options differ depending on the application software and model you are using.
Normally, when you tap Print and select a model name, the displayed printer options will include
up to the following four options:
Printer: Select a model that can be used in your wireless LAN.
Copies: Select the number of print copies.
Duplex Printing: If the model supports duplex printing, you can select On or Off.
Range: The page range can be used only with specific application software and file types
(such as PDF files).
5. For 1 Copy, click + or - to set the number of required copies.
6. For Duplex Printing, click On to enable duplex printing or click Off to disable the
function.
7. When printing a file type that has multiple pages, such as a PDF file, click Range
and then click All Pages or select the range of pages to be printed.
8. Tap the Print.
When you execute printing, the printer prints according to the specified settings.
Paper Size
With AirPrint, the paper size is selected automatically according to the application software being used on
the Apple device and the region in which AirPrint is used.
When Apple's photo application software is used, the default paper size is L size in Japan, and 4"x6" or KG
in other countries and regions.
When documents are printed from Apple's Safari application software, the default paper size is letter size in
the U.S. region, and A4 in Japan and Europe.
Important
Your application software may support different paper sizes.
Checking the Print Status
During printing, a Print icon is displayed in the list of recently used application software, and you can use it
to check the print progress.
To display the list of latest used application software, press the Home button on the Apple device twice.
The Print icon is displayed at the bottom of the Home screen.
Deleting a Print Job
To delete a print job with AirPrint, use one of the following two methods:
• From the machine: Use the operation panel of the machine to cancel the print job.
• From an Apple device: Press the Home button on the Apple device twice. Tap the Print icon and
display the print job list. Tap the print job to be canceled, and then tap Cancel Print.
AirPrint Troubleshooting
If the document does not print, check the following:
1. Check that the machine power is on. If the machine power is on, turn it off and then
back on again, and check whether the issue is resolved.
2. Check that the machine is connected by LAN to the same network subnet as the
device on which iOS is installed.
3. Check that the machine has enough paper and ink.
4. Check that no error message is displayed on the machine operation panel.
If the problem persists, use the printer driver on your computer to execute printing and check whether
the document can be printed normally on the machine.
If the document cannot be printed, refer to the Online Manual for your model.
Note
After you turn on the machine, it may take few minutes before the machine can communicate
through a wireless LAN connection. Confirm that the machine is connected to the wireless LAN, and
then try printing.

Loading Plain Paper / Photo Paper
You can load plain paper or photo paper.
Important
If you cut plain paper into small size such as 4" x 6" (10 x 15 cm) or 5" x 7" (13 x 18 cm) to perform
trial print, it can cause paper jams.
Note
We recommend Canon genuine photo paper for printing photos.
For details on the Canon genuine paper, see Media Types You Can Use.

Printing Area
To ensure the best print quality, the machine 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
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.
Print settings
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.
For Borderless Printing, use the following paper:
- Photo Paper Pro Platinum <PT-101>
- Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" <GP-501>
- Photo Paper Glossy <GP-502>
- Photo Paper Plus Glossy II <PP-201>
- Photo Paper Pro Luster <LU-101>
- Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss <SG-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 onto plain paper from the operation panel or from a digital camera is not
supported.
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 a FINE Cartridge
Replacing a FINE Cartridge
Checking the Ink Status
Replacing a FINE Cartridge
When remaining ink cautions or errors occur, the message will appear on the LCD to inform you of the
error. Take appropriate action according to the message.
A Message Is Displayed
Note
For information on the compatible FINE cartridge, refer to the printed manual: Getting Started.
Replacing Procedure
When you need to replace a FINE cartridge, follow the procedure below.
Important
Handling FINE cartridge
Do not touch the electrical contacts (A) or print head nozzle (B) on a FINE cartridge. The machine
may not print properly if you touch them.
If you remove a FINE cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the machine with the FINE
cartridge removed.
Use a new FINE cartridge for replacement. Installing a used FINE cartridge may cause the nozzles to
clog.
Furthermore, with such a FINE cartridge, the machine will not be able to inform you when to replace
the FINE cartridge 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
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. We recommend to use a new FINE cartridge 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, see Setting the Ink Cartridge to be Used.
Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black-and-white document or when black-andwhite printing is specified.
Both color ink and black ink are also consumed in the standard cleaning and deep cleaning of the
print head, which may be necessary to maintain the performance of the machine. When ink runs out,
replace the FINE cartridge immediately with a new one.
Useful Information about Ink
1. Make sure that the power is turned on, open the front cover (C), then open the
paper output tray (D).
2. Open the paper output cover (E).
When the FINE cartridge holder moves to the replacement position, the head cover (F) OPENS
AUTOMATICALLY.
Caution
Do not hold the FINE cartridge holder to stop or move it forcibly. Do not touch the FINE
cartridge holder until it stops completely.
Important
The head cover will open automatically after you open the paper output cover.
If you have closed the head cover while replacing a FINE cartridge, close the paper output
cover, then open it again.
Trying to force open the head cover with your hand may cause the machine to malfunction.
Do not touch the metallic parts or other parts inside the machine.
If the paper output cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the FINE cartridge holder moves
to the far right and the Alarm lamp lights. In this case, close the paper output cover, then open
it again.
3. Remove the empty FINE cartridge.
(1) Push down the ink cartridge lock lever until it clicks.
(2) Remove the FINE cartridge.
Important
Handle the FINE cartridge carefully to avoid staining of clothing or the surrounding area.
Discard the empty FINE cartridge according to the local laws and regulations regarding disposal
of consumables.
4. Prepare a new FINE cartridge.
(1) Take a new FINE cartridge out of its package and remove the protective tape
(G) gently.
Important
If you shake a FINE cartridge, ink may spill out and stain your hands and the surrounding area.
Handle a FINE cartridge carefully.
Be careful not to stain your hands and the surrounding area with ink on the removed protective
tape.
Do not reattach the protective tape once you have removed it. Discard it according to the local
laws and regulations regarding disposal of consumables.
Do not touch the electrical contacts or print head nozzle on a FINE cartridge. The machine may
not print properly if you touch them.
5. Install the FINE cartridge.
(1) Insert the new FINE cartridge straight into the FINE cartridge holder all the way
until it touches the back.
The color FINE cartridge should be installed into the left slot and the black FINE cartridge should
be installed into the right slot.
Important

Remeasurement.
• Check that the printer and the access point are located within the wireless connectivity
range with no obstacles between them.
• Check if the distance between the printer and the access point is not too far.
If they are too far, move them closer together (within 164 ft./50 m).
• Check that there is no barrier or obstacle between the printer and the access point.
In general, connection performance decreases for communications through walls or
between different floors. Adjust the locations to avoid such situations.
• Check that there are no sources of radio interference near the printer and the access
point.
The wireless connection may use the same frequency band as microwave ovens and
other sources of radio interference. Try to keep the printer and the access point away
from such sources.
• Check if the radio channel of the access point is close to that of other access points
nearby.
If the radio channel of the access point is close to that of other access points nearby,
the connection performance may become unstable. Be sure to use a radio channel that
does not interfere with other access points.
• Check that the printer and the access point face each other.
Connection performance may depend on the orientations of the wireless devices.
Replace the access point and the printer in another direction to achieve the best
performance.
• Check whether other computers are not accessing the printer.
If
appears in the result of the measurement, check whether other computers are not
accessing the printer.
If
still appears even if you have tried the above, finish the measurement, then restart the
IJ Network Tool to start over the measurement.

Restrictions on Card Slot Use over a Network
Mounting the Card Slot as the Network Drive
The card slot must be mounted to use it over a network.
To mount the card slot as the network drive, follow the procedure below.
1. Insert a memory card into the card slot of the machine.
2. Check the current printer name.
You can check the current printer name on the LCD of the printer.
3. On Finder, click the Go menu and Connect to Server.
4. Input "smb://xxxxxxxxxxxx/canon_memory/", then click Connect.
For example, if the current printer name is "123ABC000000", then input "smb://123ABC000000/
canon_memory/".
5. Make sure that the card slot is mounted.
When the card slot is mounted, the following icon appears on the desktop. (If you are using Mac
OS X v.10.6.8, the icon appears in the Computer window on the Go menu of Finder.)
Note
The authentication screen may appear. If it appears, you do not need to input the
password.
If you cannot mount the card slot with the method above, input the IP address of the
machine instead of the current printer name, and try again. For example, "smb://
192.168.1.1/canon_memory/". If you mount the card slot with the IP address, you have to
remount it whenever the machine's IP address changes.
Restrictions on Card Slot Use over a Network
• You cannot write data to a memory card in the card slot over a network. You can only read data
from a memory card.
• The card slot can be shared by multiple computers, if the machine is connected to a network.
Multiple computers can read files from a memory card in the card slot at the same time.
• If your computer joins a domain, the card slot may not be mounted as the network drive.
• If you use the memory card stored the large size files or many files, a large amount of card
access may be generated. In this case, the operation in the memory card may be impossible or
slow. Operate after the Access lamp of the machine is lit.
• When you access the network drive for the card slot over the network, file names consisting of
eight or less lowercase letters (not including its extension) may be shown in uppercase.
For example, a file name such as "abcdefg.doc" will be "ABCDEFG.DOC", while a name such as
"AbcdeFG.doc" will appear the same.
The file is not actually renamed, but merely appears to be changed.
• Disable the function to write files to a memory card from a computer to read files from a memory
card over a network.

Key to Enjoying Consistent Printing Quality
Precautions for Safe Transport of the Machine
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 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.
Key Points to Successful Printing
Check the machine 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 machine 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 machine with Bottom Plate
Cleaning.
Cleaning the Inside of the Machine (Bottom Plate Cleaning)
Check how to load the paper correctly!
Is the paper loaded in the correct orientation?
To load paper in the front tray, load paper WITH THE PRINTING SIDE FACING DOWN.
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
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, distance from
nozzles, etc., 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.
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 machine and you may not be able to continue to print.
Press the Stop button to cancel printing.
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 disconnect the power plug until the power is turned off!
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 all
the lamps on the operation panel are turned off, the print head will not be capped properly and this
will cause drying or clogging.
When disconnecting the power plug, make sure that all the lamps on the operation panel are not lit.
Notice for Unplugging the Power Cord
Important
If the power plug is disconnected, the date/time settings will be reset and all documents stored
in the machine's memory will be lost. Send or print a necessary document, or save it on a USB
flash drive before disconnecting the power plug.
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.
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.
Precautions for Safe Transport of the Machine
When relocating the machine, make sure of the following.
Important
When sending the machine for repair
Pack the machine in a sturdy box so that it is placed with its bottom facing down, using
sufficient protective material to ensure safe transport.
With the FINE cartridge left installed in the machine, press the ON button to turn off the power.
This allows the machine to automatically cap the print head, thus preventing it from drying.
After packing, do not tilt the box containing the machine or turn it on its side or upside down.
Doing so may cause the ink to leak during transport and cause damage to the machine.
When a shipping agent is handling transport of the machine, have its box marked "THIS SIDE
UP" to keep the machine with its bottom facing down. Mark also with "FRAGILE" or "HANDLE
WITH CARE".
1. Turn the machine off.
2. Confirm that all the lamps on the operation panel are off and unplug the
machine.
Notice for Unplugging the Power Cord
Important
Do not unplug the machine while any lamp on the operation panel is lit or flashing, as it
may cause malfunction or damage to the machine, making the machine unable to print.
3. Retract the paper output support, then close the paper output tray. Retract the
paper support with the output tray extension closed.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Disconnect the printer cable from the computer and from the machine, then
disconnect the power plug from the machine.
6. Use adhesive tape to secure all the covers on the machine to keep them from
opening during transportation. Then pack the machine in the plastic bag.
7. Attach the protective material to the machine when packing the machine in the
box.
