Turn off and unplug the printer from its electrical source for several minutes. Turn off the computer. Turn on the printer boot up the computer. Try to print something. Try checking for viruses or spyirus http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportDetailAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=11993 this is the site for your printer. Scaled printing To enlarge or reduce a printed document by specifying a percentage, select 'Scaled Printing'. You cannot use this setting with borderless printing. 1. Access the printing preferences by opening the printer Properties/ Preferences. For Windows Vista * Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'. * Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears. For Windows XP Home Edition * Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.' * Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

If you select a size that cannot be selected in your printer, a message will display informing you that the setting has been changed to 'Fit-to-page' printing. Select 'Scaled Printing' again. 4. In 'Orientation', select the same orientation as specified in the application (either Portrait or Landscape). 5. In 'Printer Paper Size', select the paper size loaded in the printer. In 'Scaling', the magnification at which the document will print so as to fit exactly on the output paper size will appear as a reference value. 6. In 'Scaling', specify the percentage. You can select from 20% to 400%. 7. Click 'OK'. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

I am having problems installing canon iP5200 with Windows 7


Did you upgrade the computer from Windows XP to Windows 7? If so, did you uninstall the driver before you did the upgrade? The old driver files may be causing the problem.

To fix, go to this link, and in the search box in the center of the screen type "windows 7" and click on the Search button. Then select the link "ERROR: Cannot communicate with the printer after upgrading to Windows 7". There will be step-by-step directions for resolving your problem.

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

Canon Pixma ip5200. Inner cover open


The inner cover is the part where the CD print tray goes. When you look at the front of the printer you should see CANON written above the output paper tray - just like in the picture next to you post. If you can't see the word - just fold up the flap.
