This article shows how to use the operation panel of the PIXMA G6020 to enter letters, numbers, and symbols.


The buttons on the operation panel allow you to enter (or change) characters, numbers, or symbols when setting up the network or making other settings.


Switching the Input Mode

The current input mode appears at the upper right corner of the LCD.

Pressing the Setup  button on the operation panel toggles through the input modes in the order lowercase > uppercase > numeric > symbols, showing the first available character.

The following shows available characters in each mode.
