Hi there,

You can change the default printer to any other printer that you have connected to your computer. This will simplify your printing tasks, since you can select the most frequently used printer to be the default.

  1. Click on the Start menu and click on Settings, then Printers.
  2. A window will appear showing the icons of all the printers that are installed on your system. Right-click on the icon for the printer you want to use as the default. A menu will appear.
  3. Click on Set as Default.
  4. To make sure the correct printer is now set as the default, right-click on the printer icon again. When the menu opens, a check mark should appear before Set as Default.
Hope this initial info/idea helps.

How do i print copys of MX310 printer manual


Do you mean the Canon Pixma MX310 all-in-one inkjet printer? If you wish to print a copy without using a computer, first make sure that you have ink and paper loaded and that the all-in-one is on and the paper output tray is extended. Place your document face down on the glass or face up in the automatic document feeder. (Note: the scanner doesn't see the document if it is within 2 mm of some of the edges of the platen glass. If you use the ADF, remove any document currently on the glass.) Press Copy (if the unit isn't already set to copy). Check the default settings on the LCD screen and enter the number of copies desired. Press Settings to change any items and use the left/right arrows to change the number of copies, if needed. Press the Color or Black button to make the copy(ies). Color for color documents and Black for black & white documents. Press Cancel to stop copying.

The FAQ on making a copy without storing the image on a computer is here: https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART120681&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1485643876501 .

The manual is available on the product support page: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/printers/support-inkjet-printer/mx-series/pixma-mx310 . Click on the Manuals tab. The manual is in a self-extracting executable file. You'll need to run the program and then find the icon or folder where the manual is stored. (The default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon/IJ Manual .)

I hope this helps. If this doesn't work, please add a comment with any error messages that you see.

How do I reload staples into my Xerox WorkCentre 7530?


You did not indicate finisher? Xerox MFPs' come with the most finishing options of any manufacturer.... I included instructions for all of them below. Enjoy!

  1. Make sure the printer has stopped copying or printing.
  2. Open the Finisher Front Door.

Can I print on both sides of the page


Here are the instructions for duplex printing.

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.

The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:

1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.

2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.

3. Specify Staple Side.

The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.

4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.

5. Click OK.

sub.gifIf a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:

When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.

sub.gifIf Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:

When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
caution.gif Note

sub.gifDuplex Printing is unavailable when:

- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.

- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.

sub.gifWhen Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.

How to get a Canon MG5220 printer to print 2-sided copies


If you have a Canon MG5220 you certainly can print two-sided. I have one and I print two=sided pages. When you bring up your print menu underneath "Orientation" is a small window that likely says "layout". Click that window and you will have various options to choose from; color matching, paper handling, cover page, quality media color options. borderless printing and duplex printing & margin. Choose Duplex & Margin. Once you've clicked that you'll see a check box for duplex printing, click that box. You have other options for for reduced or normal printing (your choice) and then if you're stapling there's options for the side you'd prefer but the point is once you've checked off that box for duplex printing you're set to go.

My computer was printing lines within color images. I tried to manually adjust the colored ink. That made things worse. How do I reset the printer back to default auto settings?


start>control panel>printers
select the IP3200 printer
select display printer queue
select IP3200 printer
select printer>properties>printer preferences>defaults>apply
This should set your printer back to the default settings.

Ref.: BJC 620 I cannot get true black print, instead I get sort of greenish color where the black shoud be.


Hello, look at what cartridges are being used and what is status indication? There are several things to think about, as follows:

1) Is there a good black cartridge? Many color ink-jet printers will print black using color cartridges if black is out, low, or bad.

2) Can you use a standalone copy mode - if possible for your printer -and get good/correct copy colors (not using the computer)?

2) Have any cartridges been refilled manually? I have done this where I thought I refilled a cartridge with the right color and filled it with the wrong one by accident -oops. Please try different cartridges.

3) Is your printer color problem the same when using any or all programs? If it is and you are sure all the cartridges are OK then use your printer software to reset all the settings to a default factory settings and try again.

Canon MP470 printer problem


I think your printer requires a little servicing. Those spots are usually caused by a dirty gamma wire, and probably the fuser is requiring a replacement. Both tasks can be done on-site, but require a little knowledge of the printer internal parts.

Can I set default printing to black and white for color laser printer?


Yes. Any printer's default options can be set as desired. Open the printer's properties (Start/Control Panel/Printers/right click the printer and left click Properties), and change the setting as you wish, then click OK. Those settings should be used each time you use the print command, unless you change the settings for that particular print job.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!
