Cannot Print Properly From The Digital Camera
The following are the possible errors that may occur when printing directly from a digital still camera 
or digital video camcorder*, and the countermeasures to eliminate them.
*Hereafter, the digital still camera and digital video camcorder are collectively called a digital camera 
or camera.
PictBridge compatible digital cameras can be connected to your machine for 
direct printing.
This section describes errors that are indicated on Canon-brand PictBridge-
compatible cameras. The error messages and operations may vary 
depending on the camera you are using. If you are using a non-Canon 
PictBridge compatible camera and not sure how to clear the error from the 
camera, confirm the message displayed on the LCD of the machine and clear 
the error. For clearing an error from the machine, see “An Error Message Is 
Displayed On The LCD/LED” on page 86.
A communication time out occurs if printing takes a long time or if it takes too 
much time to send data. This may stop printing. In such cases, disconnect the 
cable between the machine and the camera, and reconnect the cable 
between the machine and the camera. Then, turn the camera on, if it does not 
automatically turn on. If the problem is still unresolved, select some other 
photo and check if it can be printed.
Your PictBridge compatible device may need to be switched to printing mode 
before it is connected to the machine, depending on the model of the device. 
Also, it may need to be turned on manually or switched to replay mode after 
connected to the machine. Refer to the instruction manuals supplied with your 
camera and take the necessary steps before connection.
The FINE Cartridge nozzles may be clogged if printing becomes faint or 
colors are incorrect. See “When Printing Becomes Faint Or Color Is Incorrect” 
on page 75.
If the paper is curled or its surface is scratched during printing, make sure that 
you are using the correct type of paper.
For the errors indicated on the camera and their solution, also refer to the 
user’s manual of the camera. For other troubles with a digital camera, contact 
the manufacturer of the camera.
