When printing in color, install the BC-11e Color
BJ Cartridge or the BC-12e Photo BJ Cartridge (see
page 2-14).
The BJ cartridge may be out of certain ink colors, or
the print head may be blocked. Print a Nozzle Check
Pattern to check the condition of the print head
(see page 2-2).
If the Nozzle Check Pattern does not print correctly,
the print head may be blocked. Perform the print head
cleaning procedure (see page 2-4).
If you still cannot print, replace the ink tanks.
(see page 2-6).
When printing illustrations and photos, use High
Resolution Paper. To achieve a non-grainy, life-like
appearance for illustrations and photos of natural
images that have many color gradations, use the
optional BC-12e Photo BJ Cartridge.
Refilling of ink tanks is not recommended. For ideal
printing, use Canon ink products.
