Canon Pixma MP610 custom paper size problem

Hi,

When printing 4x6 photos in borderless mode there is a huge amount of overspray (after 10-20 photos the printer starts smudging). The next day first 10-15 photos are OK, rest is with ink smudges. I believe it's because of a huge overspray caused by using 4x6in (101.6 x 152.4mm) driver setting with 100x150 paper. It's much more difficult to buy 4x6 paper than 100x150mm (I'm in Europe).
The question is - how do I use custom paper size in borderless mode? Soon as I tick the borderless tickbox in the driver, the paper sizes list becomes limited and 'custom' disapears.

I think it's a common problem not only for MP610 but for other Pixmas too. I read the manual - nothing, I tried googling - no solution.


Best Regards,

Jerry1111

    Thanks yooperbud. The driver is OK - in fact I've tried reinstalling, no change. The problem seems to be with overspray because of page size mismatch _and_ paper quality. Looks like some (not all) papers are a little bit curly (difficult to see with your eye, but you can see that with a ruler). Add both things together and you have my problem. Situation got much better when i've started printing from QImage with margins adjusted by hand (to give <0.5mm overspray). Also the paper is stored under weight (to keep it straight). So far so good!

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Canon MP600, Borderless print issues


There is probably a "gutter" setting that is trying to give you a border of sorts. Check the advanced print settings and look for something like gutter and turn it off.

Konica Minolta Bizhub C350. Precut 4x6 full bleed postcards.


Hello

Yes, there is no 4x6 choice, you have to input costume size.
For the bord-less part, i first would recommend to use a little bigger costume size so if paper with is 20 mm and there is a boarder about 1-3 mm then input costume size 23 mm. Caution, this can cause a paper jam, because there is a solenoids, what read paper. or you can use a bigger paper and later cut off the boards. Because this printer is not capable printing board-less photos

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...

Page printing


If the dimensions of the picture your trying to print are not in a 2:3 ratio (same ratio as 4 x 6), it cannot fill the entire 4 x 6 area without distorting the image, i.e., you would have to "stretch" the dimension which has white margins right now to fill the paper. To print an undistorted borderless image, you will have to "crop" the picture so that the remaining dimensions are in a 2:3 ratio.
