Printer is only printing on the right side of the photo paper

Hi, my CP-220 photo printer is only printing on the right side of the photo paper. I have checked and double checked all the settings and everything seems fine. I have installed the last version of the drivers but the same thing continues to happen. Thanx in advance. Bye, Jorge Yes same problem with CP330 - not used for ages then it wouldn't work. Would ;like to follow solution of glueing possible broken part but can't get the printer apart. 3 screws underneath but cover won't budge. Any tips bearing in mind the poor standard of plastic used?

Check out the cartridge on the Rack moving completely otherwise clean up the Carriage rack,

remove the Cartridge once and then clean it firmly, its Nozzle and contact strip.

Then clean out with a cotton or paper the carriage rack and contract strip, also the Roller (if you are accessible to that).

If no luck then try for reinstall the printer, and use of new cartridge.

Can I print on both sides of the page


Here are the instructions for duplex printing.

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.

The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:

1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.

2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.

3. Specify Staple Side.

The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.

4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.

5. Click OK.

sub.gifIf a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:

When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.

sub.gifIf Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:

When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
caution.gif Note

sub.gifDuplex Printing is unavailable when:

- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.

- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.

sub.gifWhen Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.

Canon cp 220 only prints 1/2 of the photo


There is nothing wrong with the Printer. The problem is the picture settings that are being used in the graphic software. You have not specified which Graphics or photo software you are using. Therefore I will generally tell you that you have to adjust the size and the dimensions of the photo you are printing. Make the photo small enough that it fits your page. Some graphics software also allow you to crop the photo (which means you zoom on a certain important part of the photo and bite it off and that part is sent for a print to printer). This whole game is in the software. Another important tip is that whatever photo or graphics software you use to print photos, never forget to preview your photo before you send it for printing. The Preview shows you how the overall image will look like after printing.

2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. When printing a document that has small margins, click Print Area Setup... and set the print area.
When you perform duplex printing, the print area of the document becomes slightly narrower than usual and the document may not fit on one page.
