Solution

Loading Plain Paper / Photo Paper

You can load plain paper or photo paper into the printer.

 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.

 We recommend Canon genuine photo paper for printing photos. For details on the Canon genuine paper, see Media Types You Can Use.

 You can use general copy paper. For the page size and paper weight you can use for this machine, see Media Types You Can Use.

  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. Load paper:

    1. Gently open the front cover.

    2. Holding the right tab on the front cover, pull out the cassette until it stops.

    4. Load the paper in the center of the cassette WITH THE PRINT SIDE FACING DOWN.

      Push the paper stack all the way to the back of the cassette.

       Always load paper in the portrait orientation (B). Loading paper in the landscape orientation (C) can cause paper jams.

  3. Slide the right paper guide (A) to align the paper guides with both sides of the paper stack.

    Do not slide the paper guides too hard against the paper. The paper may not be fed properly.

    2. Open the paper output tray (H) gently, then extend the paper output support (I).
