Replacing FINE Cartridges

When FINE Cartridges run out of ink, replace them using the following steps.

Important

Handling FINE Cartridges

z Do not touch the electrical contacts or Print Head Nozzles on a FINE Cartridge. The machine may not print out properly if you touch them.

(A)

(B)

(A) Electrical Contacts

(B) Print Head Nozzles z To maintain optimal printing quality, we recommend the use of specified Canon brand FINE Cartridges.

Refilling ink is not recommended.

z Once you remove a FINE Cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the machine with FINE

Cartridges removed.

z 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.

z 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.

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. When a FINE Cartridge is out of ink, replace it immediately with a new one.

z When a FINE Cartridge runs out of ink, you can continue printing with either Black or Color ink only by changing Ink Cartridge Settings. For details, see “Setting of FINE Cartridges” on page 27.

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, the machine does not print.

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 20 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

Cause

The media is loaded with the wrong side facing upwards.

Inappropriate Paper Thickness Lever setting.

Print Head is misaligned.

Action

Load the media with the correct side facing upwards.

Many types of paper are made to be printed on only a particular side of the paper.

Printing on the wrong side may cause unclear prints or prints with reduced quality.

Refer to the instruction manuals supplied with the paper.

Adjust the position of the Paper Thickness Lever according to the type of paper

you are printing on. See “Paper Handling” on page 8.

Depending on the printing content, the printing surface may become scratched even for the types of paper to set the lever to the left. In this case, set the Paper

Thickness Lever to the right.

* Reset the Paper Thickness Lever to the left when you finish printing. If the lever is not set back to the left, the inside of the machine 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.

If you did not align the Print Head after installation, straight lines may be printed misaligned. If ruled lines are printed misaligned or print results are otherwise

unsatisfactory, see “Aligning the Print Head” on page 22 and perform Print Head

Alignment.

Printed Paper Curls

Cause

Paper is too thin.

Action

When printing data with high color saturation such as photographs or images in deep color, we recommend using Photo Paper Pro or other Canon specialty

paper. See “Media Types You Cannot Use” on page 9.

Troubleshooting

„

Printed Surface Is Scratched/Paper Is Smudged

Cause

Paper Feed Roller is dirty.

Inside of the machine is dirty.

Printing on inappropriate type of paper.

Paper is curled.

Action

You may need to clean the Paper Feed Rollers of the Auto Sheet Feeder. Follow the procedure below.

Cleaning the Paper Feed Roller of the Auto Sheet Feeder consumes it, so perform this procedure only when necessary.

For details on cleaning, see “Cleaning the Paper Feed Rollers (Roller Cleaning)” on page 33.

When performing duplex printing, if the inside of the machine is stained with excess ink, printed paper may become smudged.

See “Cleaning the Inside of the Machine” on page 33 to clean the inside of the

machine.

z Check to see if the paper you are printing on is not too thick or curled.

See “Media Types You Cannot Use” on page 9.

z When performing Borderless Printing, print quality may be reduced at the top and bottom edges of the paper. Make sure that the paper you are using is suitable for Borderless Printing.

For details, refer to “Printing Area” in the User’s Guide on-screen manual.

For Plain Paper

Turn the paper over and reload it to print on the other side.

Leaving the paper loaded in the Auto Sheet Feeder 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.

(1) (2)

(A)

(3) Check to see that the paper curl is corrected to within approximately 0.08 to 0.2 inches / 2 to 5 mm (B) in height.

(A)

(B)

We recommend printing curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.

When printing from your computer, refer to “Print Results Not Satisfactory” in the

User’s Guide on-screen manual.

If you are printing beyond the recommended printing area of your printing paper, the lower edge of the paper may become stained with ink.

Canon USA offers a range of customer technical support* options: z Interactive troubleshooting, e-mail technical support, the latest driver downloads and answers to frequently asked questions (www.canontechsupport.com) z Toll-free live technical support Monday—Saturday (excluding holidays) at 1-800-828-4040 z Telephone Device for the Deaf (TDD-1-866-251-3752) z Repair or Exchange Service Options:

In the event service is required for the Product during the limited warranty period, Canon USA offers two hardware support options:

Authorized Service Facility Carry-In / Mail-In Service

Canon USA’s Carry-In/Mail-In Service provides repair or exchange, at Canon USA’s option, through Canon USA’s Authorized Service Facility (ASF) network. The name and telephone number of the ASF(s) near you may be obtained from Canon USA’s Web site at

www.canontechsupport.com or by calling the Canon USA Customer Care Center at 1-800-

828-4040, or any time while speaking to a technical support person. A Product covered by this limited warranty will be repaired or exchanged, as determined by Canon USA, and returned without charge by the ASF.

InstantExchange Service **

A Canon Customer Care Center or ASF technician will attempt to diagnose the nature of the problem and, if possible, correct it over the telephone. If the problem cannot be corrected over the telephone, and you elect the InstantExchange option, a reference number will be issued to you. You will be asked for the Product serial number and other information pertaining to your

Product and for a ship-to location for the replacement Product (must include street address).

The Canon USA repair facility will ship out the replacement Product prepaid by Canon USA.

After receipt of the replacement Product (with instructions and a prepaid waybill), follow the enclosed instructions on how to ship your product to the Canon USA repair facility. Your Product must be returned in the shipping carton in which the replacement Product was packed and 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

WITH THE YOUR PRODUCT IN THE RETURN SHIPPING CARTON, AND BE SURE TO

RETAIN YOUR PRINTHEAD, INK CARTRIDGE(S) AND TANK(S).

InstantExchange Service exchanges your Product with a replacement Product, which will normally be shipped the same day if your request for this service is by 3 p.m. E.T. Monday through Friday, except holidays. Canon USA does not guarantee same day shipment in the event of the occurrence of factors beyond its reasonable control. The replacement Product you receive may be a refurbished or reconditioned unit and will be covered for 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. CANON USA WILL

RETAIN THE PRODUCT THAT YOU ORIGINALLY PURCHASED, WHICH SHALL BECOME

THE PROPERTY OF CANON USA. 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.

This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.

* Support program specifics are subject to change without notice.

** InstantExchange warranty service is subject to the availability of refurbished or new replacement units.
