Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing If the printed nozzle check pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head. NOTE:
a. Cleaning the print head consumes a small amount of ink. Cleaning too often reduces the amount of ink in the ink tanks.

b. Print head cleaning is performed when you connect the power cord. Your machine may perform print head cleaning periodically to avoid clogging.

  1. Press <COPY> or <PHOTO>.

  2. Press <Menu> repeatedly until <USER DATA> appears.

  3. Press < (left arrow) or > (right arrow) to select [MAINTENANCE].

  4. Press <OK>.

  5. Use < or > to select [CLEANING] or [HEAD REFRESHIN] as necessary.

    sj402078.jpg

    [CLEANING]: Performs normal print head cleaning.
    [HEAD REFRESHIN]: Performs deep print head cleaning.

  6. Press <OK>.

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern to see if print quality improved.
    1. Press <COPY> or <PHOTO>.
    2. Press <Menu> repeatedly until <USER DATA> appears.
    3. Press < (left arrow) or > (right arrow) to select [MAINTENANCE].

      sj402063.jpg
    4. Press <OK>.

      sj402064.jpg
    5. Press <OK> again.
      The machine prints a nozzle check pattern (A).

      sj402060.jpg

  8. If broken or white lines appear in the pattern, perform two Head Refreshings (from steps 1 through 6) then print another Nozzle Check Pattern.

  9. If print quality does not improve after two Head Refreshings, replace the appropriate ink tank.

SOURCE: Is the canon multipass f60 compatible with windows vista (on an hp laptop)?

Canon does not offer Vista drivers for the MultiPass F60. Vista may have some generic drivers that will work, so don't delete or over-ride them in the system.

The major problem is that the printer only supports USB 1.1 and not USB 2.0

Here is a link to Canon's MultiPass F60 Printer site ...

Hi,
The printer drives varies with OS, even if the printer is of the same model. So goto canon website and specify your printer model and OS, download appropriate drivers and install it in Vista. Then you are good to go.

Hi!

The warning that you received was an Operating System incompatibility driver. You must download the correct driver for the specific Operating System like Windows XP, Vista or Mac.

For Windows XP, download the driver HERE

For Windows Vista 32-bit, download the driver HERE

For Windows Vista 64-bit, download the driver HERE

For Mac, download the driver HERE

Note: In using Vista driver, you should identify if you are using Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. Go to Control Panel > System to check for version of Vista that you are using.

Good luck and have a nice day!
