Canon Pixma iP4500 custom paper size's problem

Hi! I have an iP4500 and when I try to print with a custom paper size (6x14 in)  the printer does whatever she wants except to print the configurated print area.   I have tryed with an Illustrator CS2 and an InDesign CS2 file, with the same result.
OS: Mac 10.4.x
please, if anyone knows how to solve it, share it with me!! thanks! pame

SOURCE: 11x17 Landscape will only print 1 page then switches to Portrait

I found an acceptable workaround. If I leave the paper size set to "defined by driver" in the Print dialog box and chose the paper size in the Page Set Up dialog box, that seems to do it. There were numerous complaints on the web about this and it seems to be a major glitch in CS3 with the Leopard OS.

SOURCE: MP600 with Mac OS X - no borderless printing option?

I had the same question. I found the answer at Canon's site but I can't link directly to the page so here's how I found the solution...
1. Go to the Canon Support site. 2. In the "Please enter your question field" type: How do I Print edge to edge? 3. Hit the "Search" button. 4. Click the #1 (top) search result "How do I Print edge to edge?" 5. Click the #1 (top) solution: "Use Borderless Printing (Mac OS X) MP600 6. Follow the directions.
It seems the main thing you need to do is go to the "Page Setup" dialog. Then make sure you've chosen the MP600 in the "Format for:" popup menu. Finally, in the "Paper Size:" popup, select "A4" then "A4 (borderless). It's a hierarchical menu.
FWIW I still haven't gotten a "perfect" borderless print. Seems you gotta get the paper in there exactly straight...

SOURCE: Canon PIXMA ip4500 will not turn on

Sounds like the power outage was a power surge and destroyed your printer, especially if your printer was not plugged into a power surge protector strip. Check with others in your apartment to see if they experienced the same. If so, your landlord may be responsible and can put in a claim. If your printer is still under warranty, contact Canon. Also, check to see if this item is covered by tenant insurance, if you have coverage. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: canon pixma ip4500 print head

Printhead can be washed under running hot tap to flush all the old ink away. I did mine and it didn't affect performance after drying it overnight in a warm area. Re-fitted it and away it went. Don't worry about getting connector board wet at the back.

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

Can you print a test page from Windows. If so, it may be the paper. Try a different type of paper.

My canon iP4500 will not use black ink on photopaper. If I tell it the paper is plain then it prints fine. If I tell it the paper is any type of photopaper the colours are great but there is no black ink...


If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

Try to print directly to DVD with a canon pixma


>> It tells me to close the door so it can resume printing on paper normally A4.

It is trying to "ignore" the "bypass" try.

Tell the printer to *ACCEPT* the disk from the "bypass" tray,
rather than from the stack of paper in the A4 tray.

To tell the printer, click the OK button on the printer.

Canon Pixma iP4500 error 5100


Hi You can Try
Another old posting
Error Code 5100
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

Mac leopard and ip4500


Hi,
Have you tried using different software for your printing.
Something that will give you more scope and resolution Options.
Such As Paint Shop Pro et,c. Or try and locate the default program for the hardware. Also try opening and re-saving the photos in a different Format i.e J-peg Or Bitmap. The canon is probably used to it,s own specific format. Finally is to check the paper-scaling, you,ll have to do various test prints at allocated sizes, to ensure the printers doing the scaling that it should be.
Hope this is helpful for you.
Regards Mike @ Compurepair.

Re: How to make a enlarged document


In some printers there is a enlarge document printing support. Like Konica Minolta heavy duty printers or copiers. They support custom paper size in printer properties and also can support a large paper form a paper roll.
You are using inkjet printer so I feel there in no limit of paper size so you can print a custom size paper what you want.
Before printing just go to the properties of the printer and add a new custom size in paper menu then put that size paper into printer hope it’ll work. You must change the paper size from the application from where you are printing that paper.
