Printed Surface Is Scratched/Paper Is Smudged
The media is loaded with the wrong 
side facing upwards.
Many types of paper are made to be printed on only a particular side of the 
paper.
Printing on the wrong side may cause unclear prints or prints with reduced 
quality.
Refer to “Printing Media” in the User’s Guide on-screen manual.
Print Head is misaligned.
If you did not align the Print Head after installation, straight lines may be printed 
misaligned. Make sure to align the Print Head after you install it.
See “Automatic Print Head Alignment” on page 60 and perform Automatic Print 
Head Alignment. If this does not solve the problem, see “Manual Print Head 
Alignment” on page 61 and
 perform Manual Print Head Alignment.
Print quality is not set appropriately. 
In the Operation Panel, set Print quality in each mode to High(quality-

Cause
Action
Paper is too thin.
When printing data with high color saturation such as photographs or images in 
deep color, we recommend using Photo Paper Pro or other Canon specialty 
paper. See “Media Types You Cannot Use” on page 9.

This will reduce blurs even when printing images with plenty of adjacent 
contrasting colors.
Cause
Action
Paper Feed Roller is dirty.
If paper is not feeding properly, clean the Paper Feed Rollers. Cleaning the 
Paper Feed Rollers will wear the rollers, so perform this procedure only when 
necessary.
For details on cleaning, see “Cleaning the Paper Feed Rollers (Roller Cleaning)” 
on page 64.
Inside of the machine is dirty.
When performing Two-sided copy, if the paper size specified using the 
Operation Panel does not match the actual size of paper loaded in the paper 
source, the inside will become stained with ink, causing printed paper to 
become smudged.
Perform the Bottom Plate Cleaning to clean the inside of the machine.
For details on cleaning, see “Cleaning the Inside of the Machine (Bottom Plate 
Cleaning)” on page 65.
