    I join the club, only the top half of my print is printed, the rest is blank. I made a total of 20 prints with the thing and already broken? Must be some solution?
    I tried new paper and new ink cart, no use.

    I am having the same issue.  I have cleaned the interior, changed the ink and paper, and still the printer is only printing only the left side of the photo.  The right side remains blank.

    same problem as the others.  Only half the photo is printing.  I have changed ink, paper, and cleaned the printer.

    la stampa avviene solo per metà foto

  • fredwomack Aug 07, 2008

    Canon cp-200 was working perfectly. After several month of non-use it started printing only one half of photo.  Changed paper, cartridge, and cable to no avail. Bought cp-330 with everything new and got same problem.  Could this be a problem with the driver.  I'm using a new iMac running Leopard version 10.5.4, the same machine the cp-200 ran perfectly on before.

I would suggest uninstall your printer then reboot your computer and reinstall it again.

Try to clean your printer and check if the cartridge are properly installed.

Make sure also that you are using original canon cartridge and not the refill ones.

Canon cp 220 only prints 1/2 of the photo

There is nothing wrong with the Printer. The problem is the picture settings that are being used in the graphic software. You have not specified which Graphics or photo software you are using. Therefore I will generally tell you that you have to adjust the size and the dimensions of the photo you are printing. Make the photo small enough that it fits your page. Some graphics software also allow you to crop the photo (which means you zoom on a certain important part of the photo and bite it off and that part is sent for a print to printer). This whole game is in the software. Another important tip is that whatever photo or graphics software you use to print photos, never forget to preview your photo before you send it for printing. The Preview shows you how the overall image will look like after printing.

Vista driver for canon cp 300 printer

if Vista and 7 is unsupported by the printer manufacturer, you are pretty much out of luck. If Vista and 7 say the printer is unsupported or un certified, run the manufacturer software if you want.

You doult run in emulate mode ... but for as cheap as printers are these days, why would you want to run in that mode?
