    Mr Nic61, thnx, but as i said, there is nothing for print resolution. i've used laser printers b4 but this, this doesnt have any setting for its resolution. Is it possible that it's fixed to 1 resolution setting only? And if its, it means canon is ****.

You do that in the settings for the printer.
Press start, select printer(s), select your printer, rightclick on the printer, select propeties.
There you will find all nessasary settings for your printer.

    that printer is from 2005 and it prints in max resolution of 2400x600 dpi

    I have a couple canon printers myself here at my work, and all of them has the panel to change the resolution etc.

    I guess that your drivers is from the cd that followed whit the printer,

    Try to download new drivers from here and install them, and download tha manual aswell, you will find the drivers and the manual and other programs for your printer here M8

    I hope that helps you to solve your problem M8

    Good luck to you

We need to set the default resoultion on our Canon IR 3170C printer as it is set at the highest setting which creates massive file sizes. We can set it up at each individual scan to a lower resolution but...

try to set from Start-> Control Panel-> Scanners -> Properties.
Then set the values and select ok/Apply to save the value.
  • Pleae close if any window open for scan before making the above changes.

Post your feed-back.

Crooked pictures

i think you set the printer incorrectly. go to the properties and change to highest resolution. or maybe your printer head is dirty. clean the nozzle.
