Problem printing DVD label with Canon Pixma ip4900

Q: Problem printing DVD label with Canon Pixma ip4900

I have the tray for my Pixma ip4900, and have the image loaded, and accepted for printing, but, no matter what I do, I get "tray not inserted properly or printable disc not loaded on tray." I align the arrows on the tray, printable disc side facing up, with the small gray arrows, and press PRINT. The printer whirrs, pulls in the disc, pauses, then sends it out again, with the error message. I've been at it for two days, even trying different programs (including Canon's own ImageGarden) on the chance that it might be a program confusion, but still can't print a disc. Can anyone help me?

I changed my black ink and since doing so have only very partial printing every third line. I have cleaned and deep cleaned several times and also printed full pages 8 times but the problem still persists. There is no problem with colour. I only use canon inks and have replaced the new ink but the problem persists and has not improved. Please help.

Hello guys.

I'm having trouble with one very annoying thing I have stumbled upon recently.

I have a canon pixma ip1300 color inkjet printer and I wanted to print only in black and white. I went in the printer preferences and selected to use only the black cartridge for my printing but now every time i print something I get with the following message which I have to click on the "OK" in order to get the printing started.
That is justo so annoying. I print a lot and every time I have to clik .. OK, OK, OK ,pfff

How can I turn off that warning ?

Any ideas ?

Hi, I bought a Canon iP4900 printer recently, mainly to print labels on inkjet printable CDrs. After an initial issue with using Nero Cover Designer, which resulted in the printer thinking that an 80mm mini CDr was in fact a 120mm standard CDr (it appeared to ignore the size given) which ended up with it printing over the CD tray, I settled down to use the limited software, Canon Easy Photo Print EX instead.

To print my 80mm mini CDrs I created some text in Indesign at the correct size, saved them as image files and imported them into Easy Photo Print EX. This worked fine and when I printed out the CDs the text appeared at the correct size.

Then I loaded the same image files into the larger 120mm standard CD template, so I could create some CDs for friends who could not use the mini CD format. When I printed these CDs out, the image had been automatically scaled to fit the larger CD, without any option to remove this. The image size control in Easy Photo Print EX only controls the crop around the image, not the scale or size of the image involved. It appears to scale the images, ignoring the original size. If I print the images of the text out on paper, they appear the same size as on the 80mm mini CDs.

I'm very confused by this. The software is not very good, but no other software I've used, Nero included, seems to work with this printer. I cannot understand why it is upscaling an image automatically when placed on the larger CD template.

At the moment it means... Read more

I'm using Irfanview to print my CD/DVDs ... (Not my HP software) .. And the Image is created at the size I want to print.
Irfanview gives me a lot of control how my HP Printer prints.
It's my experience that printing on CD/DVDs is not as good as photo paper .. are you expecting too much ??

I recently used Magic Flush to unblock my printer heads (Canon PIXMA ip32000). This has worked befoire and, for a week or so I was able to print as normal. Today I found that black wasn't printing. When i looked at the print head I found that the ink didn't seem to be getting through to the print head (whilst the coloured heads looked cyan, yellow and magenta the black head was clear/white). I have tried aligning the heads manually and automatically but to no effect. I am afraid that I might have mucked up things completely, so I would like to know how I can reset the alignment back to its default settings (ie start from scratch) and why black isn't printing (could it be a faulty ink cartridge).

I was looking for a solution to a similar problem with an MP780, which uses the same inks I think. The answer there was to wash the print head with warm water. Try looking for the thread for MP780 and good luck

So i plug my printer into my mac, it automatically installs, prints absolutly great. Next day, it won't print whatsoever. Now it won't work in my windows laptop either despite again, being installed. The mac could see it was there originally, but I then reset my printer settings on the mac and the mac forgot all the printers. The printer no longer registered on the mac at all. It was literally nowhere despite being connected with the usb. Its like im plugging in air. I then downloaded the correct drivers and software, yet still nothing happened. I don't understand what is going on!
It won't connect via bluetooth either on both my mac and my windows laptop, despite trying! The mac simply will not let me add another printer via ip address, and i can't even if i could because I cannot find the ip address because the printer won't respond.
I printed off a network configuration page and the connection is inactive if that helps anything.


Have you first of all tried plugging in printer into the laptop and seeing if this prints fine with the cable connected? If not then look in control panel for devices and printers and click on this, does the printer have a green ticket next to it?

I have just rebuilt my home pc system and reinstalled windows 7. All has gone as expected.

Unfortunately, Windows 7 does not seem to like my Canon IP4950 printer.

The printer installs properly and works until reboot. Then when the computer reboots the printer is not recognised and is displayed as not connected?

If I disconnect the printer from USB and reboot, when I'm back in windows and I connect the usb lead, the printer is found!

Anyone have any ideas as to why the pc boots with the printer connected but does not recognise it correctly?

I have the latest Canon drivers and the printer worked fine on my previous Gigabyte board. I have tried to reboot with Legacy USB enabled and disabled, as I know this has caused problems with other USB devices previously.

It's a bit of a pain having to disconnect the printer and then reconnect when windows is running.

I recently bought this Canon product and it worked very well for about 6-7 months, but when we came back from vacation the black color faded and and gradualy disappeared.
I took the cartridges and the print head to the guys that refilled my cartridges (no problem here only second refill no leaks or dryed ink problems) and they told me that the printer head was clogged and that the pump that was responsible for the cleanining and deep cleaning funtions was not powerfull enough to unclog the head.
They unclogged the print head and it worked fine for the next 4-5 pages. By the 6t page black vanished again. I took the printer head back to the guys and they told me that it doesent have a problem .

So one out of two:

1. It's indeed clogged and i need to know what i can do to unclog it
2. The printer head is uncloged .... and i don't have a clue what i'm supposed to do now except posting on forums .

Thanks in advance.

A:Canon Pixma MP520 Problem

The print heads on the 520 are odd ones, if not unique for this type of machine from Canon - most of the other #8 based machines have the Black #8 in them as well - the MP520 doesn't, and uses that large #5, which is meant for text printing as its black - this is not the normal photo ink, which the #8s have in them, and is a bit thicker than the other colors (including the #8 Black). This means that it will clog a bit more often, including deeper clots between the actual head and the cartridge. What the refillers are using are flow sensors, which only detect if the ink is moving through the assembly, not if they are impeeded, and do so with a bit more pressure than what the printer normally generates.

What does all this mean? Well, here's what I would do...

1 - Using 409 or Fantastik (NO WINDEX) and a Q-Tip, I would clean all electrical contacts between the print head assembly and the printer (all those spots on the face of the print head, and all the little wire contacts inside the machine) to make sure no ink overspray is causing faulty print quality.

2 - Ye Old Desert Dish Trick - Take a desert dish and put a layer of 409 or Fantastik on it, and lay the PRINT HEADS into it (DO NOT SUBMERGE THE ASSEMBLY INTO THE 409 or FANTASTIK - only the print heads on the bottom) While it sits, make sure you keep the ink cartridges sitting in their respective slots, as you don't want the top of the print heads drying either. Come back an hour or so later and scrub the h... Read more

My Canon Pixma MP series printer is not working.

When I turn it on, it makes a shuddering noise and then flashes the codes E 3 on the display. It makes the same sound then when I turn it off.

Writing to Canon, they thought it was a paper jam which is more or less impossible as there is no paper in the machine. Then they advised to disconnect the printer from the power supply to reset it. This hasn't worked. Their final suggestion is that there is a hardware fault. However, as there is only one service centre in the UK, by the time I can get it fixed (even though it is under warranty), it would certainly cost quite a bit in postage...

I've been advised by others to try cleaning the chrome bar which I have done now and to try and force a bit of thick paper through to clear out any remnants which may be in there. I'm not sure how I would accomplish this as there is no form feed button and it has never been easy to make it grab the paper anyway...

I've since been made aware that these phantom paper jams seem to be a common problem with Canon Pixmas... I heard someone could fix them by removing and replacing the paper tray which would be easier if I had a front-loading machine.

Any advice which will save me buying another printer would be much appreciated.

I just installed new color and black and white ink cartridges and now all of my emails and internet print jobs are printing in a light blue - documents in Word print fine in black and white. The nozzle check printout only showed light blue and black. Does this mean that my ink cartridges are faulty? It was working fine prior to replacing both cartridges. Thanks.

A:Canon Pixma MX330 Problem

If you perform a test print, you should get a quality check of each color (ie: red/yellow/blue and black or magenta/yellow/cyan and black). If you aren't getting a proper test print, the ink is low/empty or the print head is clogged). There should be cleaning and deep cleaning options in the printer options. You can attempt cleaning until the test print is correct.

I have owned a Canon Pixma Mp750 Muli-functional printer for several years and it has always worked perfectly on my Windows XP PC.

I have purchased a new Windows 7 PC and updated the printer and scanner drivers from the Canon download website. The printer works great, but the scanner won't scan.

I've tried using the MP Navigator, Scangear and the Windows Scan & Fax facility but the process only gets as far as the calibration stage and stops. I eventually get an error code 2,178,0. I have tried to resolve it by changing the USB port, uninstalling the drivers and re-installing them, but the scanner still won't scan.

Any ideas, guys? The Canon support team appear to think it is a Windows error, but I'm not so sure. The drivers all seem to be installed correctly.

I am using Canon brand cartridges because I don't want to void the warranty so I am NOT playing the chip game (yet). I am getting the message that I have two Magenta cartridges in the printer (I do NOT have two Magenta cartridges in there). This message just started appearing and the light blinks fast on the cartridge. I try taking it out and putting it back in. Also have tried shutting the printer completely off for a minute and turning it back on. Sometimes the message says that it can't recognize the magenta cartridge but then it again tells me that there are two magenta cartridges. I've tried printing in just greyscale but it still won't print. I'm getting quite frustrated with this printer after having it less than 5 months.

I've been having a problem with my Canon printer (I feel like throwing it against the wall!). It has new ink cartridges in it, however, it doesn't seem to be printing correctly. It misses out lines of text/only prints the top half of a line of text/prints very faint etc etc. I have cleaned/deep cleaned it numerous times (!) using the maintenance tools and printed off the nozzle test pages only to see that it still has this problem. This isn't the first time that I've experienced this issue - I had to send it away for repair (whilst it was still under warranty thankfully!). Anyway, if anyone has any tips on how to improve my printing then I would be most grateful. If not, any recommendations on a new printer would suffice hehe.

As the subject suggests I have a problem with the Canon MP130 printer. Well not actually the printer itself but the built-in card reader. For a while I have had a long pause during startup, also a "USB mass storage device" lost it's driver. I thought it may be due to crap on the computer so I formatted and reloaded Windows XP, but alas to no avail. I then searched google and found the microsoft article "Long Pause During Windows Startup Process". So I thought can't do much. Then I found in the hardware profile the entry under the failed usb device "USB\04a9" this turned up results in google to some printer components. I tried changing USB ports on the computer but no good. I then disconnected the USB Printer from the computer, and "voila" the computer started fine and no "USB Mass storage device" error. I do not use the printers card reader so is there anyway to disable the reader.

We bought this printer, a Canon Pixma ip6000D, about 3 years ago, used it maybe five times, and then one day it stopped working. Here's what it does now:

Sometimes when I plug it in the green power light will come on and the computer will recognize it and install the driver...but it doesn't power on or responded to any commands.

Sometimes when I plug it in the power light alternates repeatedly between green and orange and still doesnt power on.

Other times nothing at all happens when I plug it in.

Also, very rarely, the LCD powers on in addition to the power light turning on...but it shortly dies after this. When it does this I still hear nothing going on inside the printer.

Any ideas? Or is it busted/in need of repair?

Thanks a bunch.

P.S. I am willing to open it up if need be.

A:Canon Pixma IP6000D Printer Problem

zack: If your PC recognizes the printer and installs drivers, that's wrong.
Try this, first, find the START HERE Instructions that came with your Printer. Then find the CD that came with it. Follow the instructions exactly. You don't want Windows drivers.
In Control Panel ADD/Remove, uninstall any software and drivers for the Canon Printer. Also remove the printer from Printers and Faxes.
When you have all Canon stuff removed, use the START HERE sheet and install everything back.
If there is no mechanical problem with your printer, you should be good to go.
If you have a mechinical problem, you're on your own because if it were mine, I'd junk it and buy another.
I have had just a little luck repairing printers at the shop, but for the most part, they are cheaper to replace.
Since you have used it only 5-6 times in 3 years, get a cheap one.

Hi all, I have a problem with a Canon 6700 photo printer. When I turn it on and get ready to print, I often get the the error message while printing that the output door is closed, even though it is open. I can play with the door and the message will go away and the picture continues to print for a couple seconds, but goes into the error again. I feel it is a switch problem that is borderline. I have found by lifting the door slightly, the problem goes away. Seems weird to LIFT the door to help it, but thats the deal. Does anyone know where the switch is located and what type of switch it is? I do service work for a living and I am willing to fix this myself if possible, but not having a manual on this unit makes it a little more difficult. Any help is appreciated.

I have a Canon Pixma 4300 printer on an XP sytem that worked well. Because the original cartridges cost so much, I've purchased a Premium Inkjet Refill kit from Uni-kit and the first time refilled the ink cartridges, everything worked fine.

However, I just refilled two cartridges and used the chip resetter, which did flash, and this time the printer is not recognizing the refilled cartridges. I get 15 flashes on the orange light on the computer, which signifies that there is an inktank problem. However, it's the same inktank that was working before I filled it.

Each of the two new tanks flash red on the tank lights in one second interval. When I close the cover and then let the print head go back into viewing position, those lamps are then out, suggesting that the ink tank is out of ink. It's filled.

Futher, now, when going to the properties tab on the printer and going to maintenance, all the inktanks are not showing any ink whatsover. Before filling these two tanks, some were close to full and all the non-filled tanks were showing up.

Now Canon suggests that you don't take out more than one inktank at a time. I took out two when I was filling them. I don't know if this has any bearing on the problem and if something other than the chip on the inktank has to be reset.

I have a Canon Pixma MP780 all-in-one printer in my office at work. It is great - prints nicely and quickly. There is just one problem: the LCD display for the ink cartridges' levels of ink is usually not accurate. Right now the display is showing that the Magenta and Cyan cartridges are full, although they should be almost empty. For the black BCI-6 cartridge, the display has been showing nearly empty for quite some time, when in fact I have replaced that cartridge with new ones several times.

I've mentioned this to people in the store where I buy the ink cartridges, and they say they haven't heard of this before... have only suggested that I return the cartridges for a replacement. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to matter if I keep replacing the cartridges, even though they are full - it seems not to be a cartridge issue.

My office computer is an HP Pavillon a1510y, running Windows Home Vista (not my choice). I can't recall if I had experienced this problem when the printer was connected to my previous work pc, which was running Windows Me. I did do a Vista driver update for the printer several months ago.

I have a Canon i850 printer which I have immensely enjoyed using these past four+ years. For one thing, I've never had even one paper-jam during that time.

My understanding always has been that it is best to have separate components, so that's why I've always owned a dedicated printer. However, it appears that the present-day trend is more toward all-in-one units. Actually, I'm in the market only for a printer, but if the Canon MP600 all-in-one is technologically advanced far beyond my i850, then I would strongly considering buying one.

The MP600 has a scanner (which I don't need, although it would provide me with a back-up) and it has several modern features of convenience which my i850 doesn't have. What I would especially like to know is whether or not the MP600 produces appreciably better results with both text and photos than my i850. Also, would it be faster and cheaper in the long run than the MP600? While quality of results is more important than anything else, speed, economy, and convenience also enter into the equation.

(I was also considering the Canon PIXMA iP6700D photo printer, but from what I've read so far it appears that the MP600 all-in-one is more highly-regarded.)

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has an opinon on this matter. Thank you very much.

I updated my driver for this printer in order to use it with a new VISTA computer. In doing this, my XP laptop, can no longer use this printer. Is there a simple solution to this?

A:Canon pixma MP 780

Updating drivers usually doesn't affect the hardware itself. Its strange that it simply stopped working because you installed vista drivers on another computer. My Pixma was simply a plug-and-play from my vista desktop to my XP laptop.

Can you provide more detail? Does the computer detect the printer but it simply doesn't print? Or is the printer undetected completely? Maybe you could try uninstalling then installing new drivers for it.

I use Canon Pixma printer with Windows 7. When I want to scan and e-mail the colours of my computer change radically. I cannot get a full picture reproduced either. Only part of it is reproduced. I had to do a system restore to get the computer to remove the ugly colours. This is the second time that it happened. Please help.

A:Canon Pixma

As regards not being able to reproduce a complete picture, try reducing the 'PPI' setting in your scanner software prior to scanning. Whilst 300 ppi is considered the optimum setting for photo scans which you intend to print, that's way too high for an email. Try scanning at 150 ppi or even 100 ppi if it's only for an email attachment.

The scanning time will then be much shorter and there will only be half as much data for the PC to cope with (compared to scanning at 300 ppi).

Uninstall the Canon software/drivers, reboot, and perform a fresh install following the Canon process.

You can use the install CD provided with the printer, or the better option would be to get the latest driver package from Canon.

This is an extremely basic question ...

I only turn my printer on when I need to use it, which is not too often. By chance, I happened to look at Control Panel/System/Device Manager/Disk Drives while it was connected, and I was quite astonished to see the following entry:

Canon MP600Storage USB Device

followed by all my regular HDs (3 in all).

Is this normal under VISTA? I ask as I have some problems with certain USB-attached devices, and am trying to isolate the problem.

Thanks in advance.

How can I troubleshoot the waste ink full?

I have already tried cleaning and replacing the foam but when I am going to print again, there is this waste ink full window that shows up.

Look for a plastic bottle of some sort and empty it out. (Not the toner cartridge!!!)

My Canon PIXMA MG6120 doesn't print the text in a document containing both text and photos. I think the driver may be incorrect, but am uncertain which driver to load from the Canon website. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on an HP TouchSmart 600-1050. Any suggestions?

Hey Folks, I have a Canon MP160 and I am trying to print photos, but they always come out redder that I want, I found some NTSC Color Bars and printed them and Magenta is purple and red is deep orange, I did a monitor calibration with a Spyder Pro and thought that corrected the problem but to no avail, any suggestions?

A:Canon Pixma MP160

what kind of printer are using
are you using the correct profile for the type of paper

getting a print to look like it does on your monitor requires carefull calibration and printer profiling
