Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

Cutting off the bottom 1/2 inch of 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper.

Just got the MP980. I want to do simple printing, with no computer connected. I'm trying to copy a regular 8-1/2 x 11 paper, and it cuts off the bottom 1/2 inch of paper. I've been playing with it, but it still keeps doing it. I'm very frustrated. Please help.
Thanks.

Notice where the metal retainer beneath the glass cuts off the view of your document you wish to copy
and make allowances on your copy. Most printers disallow some portion of the edges of any document
for handling the transport of the document through the feeder, or in the cases of contact copiers, a portion
of the sheet as you have experienced, so that the edges need not be so carefully adjusted to avoid the dark
line in edge copied formats.

Format all documents so that you do not need to copy the portion excluded.

Sometimes this can be accomplished by reducing the size of the document.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

It doesn't print in black but prints in color


Hi, To ensure this is only an issue with the black, I recommend printing off a nozzle check. This will show you if this problem is effecting any of the other colours.
To print a nozzle please refer to chapter 12 page 115 of the manual,
If colours are missing I recommend cleaning the print head. You have two options for cleaning the print head a normal clean and a deep clean, start by doing a normal clean if required try doing a deep clean.

Canon MP980 All in one printer - Error 6000


Error 6000 tells you that the paper feed roller is not turning, check for any foreign oblects in the paper path, a flashlight and small mirror is the best way to look.

Dell laser printer is cutting off about a 2 inch margin. No settings are off


Cutting off at the bottom? It is likely it is detecting the incorrect size paper. There is usually a number of levers against the paper tray - try removing the tray and verifying the paper is in there correctly - the guides are up against the page, and if you are using a4 or letter or whatever, make sure the program is set the same, as is the printer in its menus. Print a menu page, it should show you.
See if that helps.

Can't print from my mac to my canon mp980 wireless printer


Sounds like when you added xp you inadvertently installed new print driver on server.
Try rolling back driver. But may drop xp from printing.

Best solution network printer to router bypass server. Will require hard wire from printer to router. disconnect from server may need network card for printer.

Margin problem???


I can just guess it has to do with the paper being fed. either you have the paper wrong or the paper settings to a different size then the actual dimensions of your print material.
