Description

How do I load paper?

Solution

You can load plain paper or photo paper.

 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.

 You can use general copy paper or Canon Red Label Superior WOP111 / Canon Océ Office Colour Paper SAT213.

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

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

  2. Open the paper support (A).

 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 size set for the paper loaded on the rear tray matches the paper settings. Before printing, make paper settings in accordance with the rear tray paper size setting. When this function is enabled, an error code is displayed if these settings don't match to prevent incorrect printing. When the error code is displayed, check and correct the paper settings.
