How set set up type of paper (plain, photo,..) on my Canon Pixma MG 4150?

I would like to know how to choose the type of paper on my printer. I get very bad quality, so I assume the setting is not on photo paper.

The type of paper is selected through the printer dialogue in the operating system. The "Control Panel" in Windows or "System Preferences" in OSX.

SOURCE: won't print black when set for plain paper

Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

SOURCE: Printer will not print when media type is plain

Best probable cause here is the feeder sensor has wron out and its not detecting reqular stock. In this case I would humble replace the printer as a whole as it will only get worse over time. A new feeder $45 bucks labor = out the window. The easy way out of this is to try cleaning the unit really good but not all the time is that functional.

Thanks and please be considerate and leave postive votes and feedback

Printer grabs multiple pages to print one. Prints in mostly green for color copies.


Go into the printer setup menu and change the paper type to default. If your using Microsoft Word, go to 'File" > "Printer">"Properties" , and change to "plain paper" or default.

The problem sounds like the printer is set to print photos which is a heavy paper type. The printer needs to be set for a standard weight paper.

Two-sided printing


On a PC...
- Ctrl + p to print
- Choose the Canon MP530 if it's not already selected
- Click Properties button
- Page Setup tab
- Select Duplex Printing

My paper always gets jammed, so I always uncheck the Automatic checkbox. Hopefully you won't have to do that.

Good luck.
