Question about Canon PIXMA MP750 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Says Photo print but want normal print

Pressed the wrong button on the printer the other day and now it's set to photo print when it should say normal print. Doesn't seem to make any difference when printing from the computer, but when doing a photocopy it is so slow as it is obviously doing the photo print and not normal print. Can't see from the manual how to change it back and having messed around with it for several minutes still am unable to get the normal print mode back. How do I do it?

On the MP750 (and MP780...) there are 3 small "buttons" on each side of the screen. On the right side, the lowest button controls the movement from plain to glossy to high resolution to photoprint. So, if you are on one of these settings and want to switch, you press this button. Pressing it only once will affect only the paper size, but pressing the button twice will control the resolution. To move among the options use the arrow buttons (left and right) under the menu...then just push the ok button. It worked for me.

Is the canon printer just to print pictures

No, it's for all your home use printing needs. The Photo printer specification means that it's suitable ALSO for printing photos with a higher quality which a normal InkJet printer won't do. Your printer has a black and white print speed of 29 ppm and a color print speed of 19 ppm ppm. That's not a feature for photo printing, but for day to day use.

It won't print photos correctly because it only prints part of the photos

While this may be a mechanical fault, and if so a service call is going to be required to fix it, it can frequently be caused by software settings for the printer drivers or for the software being used at the time the photo is being printed.

When you select print from the software the usual response is for the printer driver's dialog box to appear. Within that box is a radio button which is usually marked "Page Setup". Selecting that button will access settings for various paper types [which can effect the problem you are having if the wrong one is high-lighted] as well as various other feature settings which can effect the printers output.

The support website for your specific printer should have information on what settings to change to realize desired results.

In software, like Photoshop for instance, settings for image size can effect the printed end result if the settings are a mismatch between photo size selected and the photo paper being used [unless there is a "fit to paper" option checked in the aforementioned printer driver page setup dialog box]. Like having those settings set to print an eight by ten print on four by six paper, for example. These settings should be checked to make sure your selected photo print size matches the paper you are printing on.

Hope that helps.

How do you choose the tray to print from. Photo


Yes there is.
You can see on the printer panel, there is a button for "photo tray".
If the light is "on" it means the button has been pressed and the printer will try to engage the photo tray in the next print job.

If the light is "off" it means the printer will ignore the photo tray.

Photos in Mac's iPhoto will not print from the photo paper tray. They always print on paper in the main paper tray (this is on an HP C7280 printer). I had an HP Photosmart 8250 and it was the same with...

This is an older post, but it appeared to be unanswered. In iPhoto once a photo is selected, you hit "Print" at the bottom right. A preview screen with options comes up. Once the correct options there are chosen, you need to hit print again - but it does not print yet. Instead a second "Print" window opens. In the middle of this window there is an "iPhoto" button with arrow buttons on the right. The arrow buttons open a drop down menu. Choose "Paper/Paper Quality" from that menu, and it will give you a button for "Source." The arrow buttons on the right of the "Source" button allow you to choose "Photo Tray."
Once it's changed, you don't need to redo it each time you print an additional photo, since iPhoto reverts to "Last Used Settings." But as a shortcut for future sessions, you can save these settings using the "Preset" button located at the top of the second "Print" window (the window where the "iPhoto" button is located). I used "Photo Tray" in the description so it would be obvious, since I don't print pictures every day.

Print quality

Paper type must be set to "Plain" to select Normal or Fast for Print Quality. Every other paper type selected will automatically set print quality to Fine (Photo).

Photo ink cartridge stuck

I had the same issue. Don't try to force the cartridge out though. After being stuck to the paper, tearing the remainder of the film won't get all of it out of the cartridge. You'll need to print a 'dummy' page to get the last bit to be pulled out and afterwards the printer will automatically release the cartridge allowing it to be pulled out normally.

Printer cannot print

H i, I am having the same problem with my R300 photo inkjet- just can't get the settings right and the handbook doesn't help much as the instructions seem to be for photo printing.
What I have done is to send an email to the company asking if they can tell me where I am going wrong. They have replied explaining how to change the settings but not which settings to use for normal paper printing, ie. emails etc. on Word, so I have replied asking the lady for such settings.
