iPF8400S Basic Guide
Cause
The type of paper specified in the
printer driver does not match the
type loaded in the printer.

Colors in printed images are uneven

Cause
Line Drawing/Text is selected when printing
images in many solid colors.
You are printing on paper that curls easily.
Printed colors may be uneven if you set the
Print Quality too low.
Color may be uneven between dark and light
image areas.
When borderless printing is used, the edge of
the paper is cut during printing. Thus, ink
density may be slightly uneven at the leading
edges.
The Printhead is out of alignment.
Allowing printed documents to dry on top of
each other may cause uneven colors.
Density may be uneven if you use Glossy
Paper or Canon Coated Paper.
The type of paper specified in the printer driver
does not match the type loaded in the printer.

Load paper of the same type as you have specified in the printer driver.
(See "Loading Rolls in the Printer.")➔P.14
(See "Loading Sheets in the Printer.")➔P.21
Make sure the same type of paper is specified in the printer driver as you have
loaded in the printer.
1. Press the Stop button and stop printing.
2. Change the type of paper in the printer driver and try printing again.
In Print Priority in the Advanced Settings of the printer driver, choose
Image.
Printed colors may appear uneven on the leading edge of paper that is
susceptible to curling. Select a stronger level in VacuumStrngth in the
Control Panel menu to increase suction against the paper, or specify a
leading margin of 20 mm (0.79 in) or more.
(See "Adjusting the Vacuum Strength.")➔User's Guide
Choose a higher level of Print Quality in the Advanced Settings of the
printer driver.
Printing in Fast or Standard mode is faster and consumes less ink than
in Highest quality or High modes, but the printing quality is lower.
(See "Giving Priority to Particular Graphic Elements and Colors for
Printing.")➔User's Guide
Select Unidirectional Printing in the Advanced Settings of the printer
driver.
Specify No in Automatic Cutting in the printer driver before printing. In
this case, the paper can be printed without borders on the left and right
sides only. Cut the printed document ejected from the printer, and then
use scissors or a cutting tool to cut away the edges on the top and
bottom.
Choose a higher level of Print Quality in the Advanced Settings of the
printer driver.
(See "Giving Priority to Particular Graphic Elements and Colors for
Printing.")➔User's Guide
Adjust the Printhead alignment.
(See "Automatic Adjustment to Straighten Lines and Colors.")➔P.97
To avoid uneven colors, we recommend drying each sheet separately.
In Advanced Settings of the printer driver, choose Highest quality or
High in Print Quality.
Load paper of the same type as you have specified in the printer driver.
(See "Loading Rolls in the Printer.")➔P.14
(See "Loading Sheets in the Printer.")➔P.21

you have loaded in the printer.
