Cannot Print Properly from a 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 actions to resolve them.
* Hereafter, the digital still cameras and digital video camcorders are collectively referred to as 
“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 dismiss the printer error message from 
the camera, check the error message displayed on the LCD and dismiss the error message. For details 
on dismissing an error message from the machine, see “Error Message Is Displayed on the LCD” on 
A communication time out occurs if printing takes a long time or if it takes too much time to send data. 
This may cancel printing. In such cases, disconnect the cable between the machine and the camera, 
and then reconnect it. Turn the camera on if it does not turn on automatically. If the problem is still not 
resolved, select a different 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 camera. Also, it may need to be turned on manually or 
switched to playback mode after connected to the machine. Refer to your camera’s instruction manual 
and take perform necessary operation before connection.
The print head nozzles may be clogged if printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect. See “When 
If the paper is curled or its surface is scratched during printing, make sure that you are using the correct 
type of paper. If the problem is not resolved by using the correct type of paper, turn on the Prevent 
For the errors indicated on the camera and their solution, also refer to your camera’s instruction 
manual. For details on other troubles with a digital camera, contact the manufacturer of the camera.
