Question about Printers & Copiers
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
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.

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...

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.

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.
