Description

This article will show you how to load plain paper or photo paper into the rear tray of the PIXMA TR7020.

Solution

Loading Plain Paper / Photo Paper in Rear Tray

You can load plain paper or photo paper.

 You can also load envelopes in the rear tray.

 If you cut plain paper to a size of 5" x 7" (13 x 18 cm) or smaller to perform a trial print, it may cause a paper jam.

 We recommend Canon genuine photo paper for printing photos. For plain paper, you can use general copy paper or Canon Océ Office Colour Paper SAT213. Learn more about the papers you can use with this printer.

  1. Align the edges of the paper. If paper is curled, flatten it.

     Align the edges of paper neatly before loading. Loading paper without aligning the edges may cause paper jams.

     If paper is curled, hold the curled corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction until the paper becomes completely flat.

     When using Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss SG-201, even if the sheet is curled, load one sheet at a time as it is. If you roll up this paper to flatten, this may cause cracks on the surface of the paper and reduce the print quality.

  2. Open the rear tray cover (A). Pull it straight up and fold back the paper support (B).

    After closing the feed slot cover, the paper setting confirmation screen for the rear tray appears on the LCD.

  8. If the page size and media type on the LCD match the size and type of paper loaded in the rear tray, select OK.

    If not, select Change to change the settings in accordance with the size and type of the loaded paper.

    Make sure that the paper shown on the LCD matches what was loaded in the rear tray

  9. Pull out the paper output tray (H) and open the paper output support (I).

 There are various types of paper, such as paper with a special surface coating for printing photos at optimal quality and paper suitable for documents. Each media type has specific preset settings (how ink is used and sprayed, distance from nozzles, etc.), that allow you to print to that type with optimal image quality. The wrong paper settings may cause poor printout color quality or scratches on the printed surface. If you notice blurring or uneven colors, increase the print quality setting and try printing again.

 To prevent incorrect printing, this printer has a function that detects whether the settings for the paper loaded on the rear tray matches the paper settings. Before printing, make print settings in accordance with the paper settings. When this function is enabled, an error message is displayed if these settings do not match to prevent incorrect printing. When this error message is displayed, check and correct the paper settings.
