Question about Canon Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Canon IP4500 serial number AAWC10165. I am having a "problem" with dull prints likely down to me not the printer. There are eight different profiles inn Photoshop 7 for IP4500 depending on what series the printer is. Trouble is I don't know how to identify my printer's series. Can you help - or is there a "safe" choice from the list?

Canon iP4500 colour management


Try this setting. This might be different but try to point some similar preferences and steps then you can give it a try.

Open Control Panel (I'm assuming that the OS is Windows XP) click on Printers and Faxes.
Right click the Canon iP4500
Click Properties in the drop down menu.
Click on the tab Color Management
There should be a list of color profiles if the drivers were installed properly.
They are-
(Generic)
(Matte Photo Paper)
(Photo Paper Pro)
(Photo Paper Pro Matte)
(Photo Paper Plus Glossy)
The last profile is the one you want. Just above you will see the choice of "Automatic" or "Manual". Click on Manual and this force the printer to use the highlighted profile for all printing jobs.

Now click on DEFAULT.
Go back to the main Properties page and click on the General tab.
Near the bottom you will see "Printing Preferences"
click on that.
You should now be in a Canon ip4500 Printing preferences window.
Look for Print Quality and click "Manual"
Click on "Set"
Click on "Diffusion" and just above that there is a slider that should be all the way to the right.
Click "OK" to save the settings.
Now just below you will see "Color Settings"
Click "Custom" and then "Set"
Everyone sees colors a little different but the following settings print a photo that folks I show them too really like the balance of.
Cyan 4
Magenta -12
Yellow 0
Black 0
Intensity Slider in the middle
Enable ICM not checked (disabled)
Print Type set to Photo (you might want to try the other settings here to see how the prints look to your eyes)
Brightness Normal
Click OK to save settings and return to the Main Menu.
If you now go under the Profiles tab you should see you new profile there.
You can give it a special name like "Canon Excellent Profile Settings" clip_image001.gifor some other easy to remember name. This is the profile you want to use when you print a photo.
That is it...simple eh?
Now the other important part is in PhotoShop/PS Elements. Open the program and then open any old photo.
Under File, scroll down to Print Preview and click
If not open, click on "Show More Options"
Bring up "Color Management" in the box just below the "Show More Options"
For "Source Space" click ""Document"
This setting depend on the profile you shoot in, either Adobe RGB or sRGB. You choose the one you use.
Below that there is a setting for "Print Space"
You want to match that to your source, whether Adobe RGB or sRGB.
For the "Intent" letting I choose Perceptual.
Then click "Use Black Point Compensation" and that is it. Ready to print

Canon pixma ip4500 cannot install drivers, 'cause gives the error - "printer not detected", even though it's ON and conected to the PC.


Hello how are you.
If you install windows 7 when you turn on the USB cable to the driver you downloaded from the Internet.If windows finds himself then the problem is the USB turntable.
Call the appropriate Canon printer service.

I need to download canon pima ip4500 printer driver for my new macbook air


I have provided a link below for you to go to at the Canon support page for your model printer,

Please selct the MAC operating system you have on your computer before downloading the driver.
Follow the prompts and install as instructed by the site and you should be good to print.

It would be advisable to add the Canon support page to your "Favorites" in the event you need to return to the page for addtional information or other software.

Good Luck

Ip4500 How to get total number of pages printed out.


This information is not always available on inkjet printers. You can try looking through your menu and see if they have a configuration or diagnostics page, but I doubt it.

If your inkjet printer was network capable, you would be able to get this info, but most non-net printers are simply...disposeable :-(

Canon iP4500 not printing yellow


take the print head with all the cartridges still installed out of the printer. take a soft microfiber cloth and gently wipe the exposed surface on the bottom of the printhead. You should get some ink to wipe off the printhead.. reinstall and retry your printing.
