Black Page When Printing Faxes
If when you print a fax, it comes out as a solid black page, go into the printer's properties and set the printer to Mono.
Printing Squashed or Running off Right Hard Side of Page
If your printing is either squashed down the left hand side of the page, or that it runs off the right hand edge of the page the cause is down to the printer not detecting the right colour cartridge in the printer.
What you need to do is go into the Properties for the printer, then into the Graphics tab, and in the Colour Model section, change the setting from Colour to Photo Colour (if it is already set to Photo Colour, change it to Colour).
It might also be worth turning on Cartridge Detection as well.
Scanner Print Head
If you get a problem whereby you get a General Protection Fault when the Screensaver starts, after you've installed the Scanner Software, the problem is with the software driver for the scanner head. Download the latest driver from Canon's Website. The version that definitely causes the problem is version 1.10.
Problems with Cartridge Detection
This will reset the printer and should resolve incorrect cartridge detection problems.
Error Message : "Internal Error: Colour Adjustment Method will not be available".
Whenever you try to print you get the above message. If you press OK, it prints, but if you press Cancel it says you don't have enough memory to use the printer's driver. The solution is to update the printer's drivers to version 3.93 or higher. The drivers should be available from Canon's Website. Remember to uninstall the previous driver before updating.
When an image is scanned, it prints 4 times bigger then the page
This happens when you are using PAINT to print from. Use the software that came with the scanner or use any graphical/Desk Top Publishing software.
Compressed Printing when using Photo Cartridge
When using an BC-22 cartridge, printing is compressed by 50% horizontally. Settings used are Colour Model = Photo and Print Quality = High.
The BC-22 cartridge will only print properly when Print Quality is set to Standard. The BC-22 has since been discontinued and replaced with the BC-22e, which will print properly when Print Quality is set to High.
