Some PDF files wont print as they have print capability disabled by the author. Try printing the following PDF document as a test.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00238864.pdf

Try setting PDF to open in the Adobe Reader application, not in the browser, then print the document from the application.

If you need Adobe Reader 9.1 you can download it from the following Adobe link

http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/

Windows Users

Click Start - Control Panel – (Hardware and Sound) - Printers.
Right click on your printer name and select Properties
Click on the Ports tab

The current port setting for your installed printer is set to FILE: Print to File which causes forces printing the document to a file on your hard drive instead of to the printer port. Scroll through the list of available ports to find the port that your printer is connected to, typically USB, LPT1 or a network location, and check the box next to it then click OK. Then print a PDF and it should now print OK.

Canon iP4500 colour management


Try this setting. This might be different but try to point some similar preferences and steps then you can give it a try.

Open Control Panel (I'm assuming that the OS is Windows XP) click on Printers and Faxes.
Right click the Canon iP4500
Click Properties in the drop down menu.
Click on the tab Color Management
There should be a list of color profiles if the drivers were installed properly.
They are-
(Generic)
(Matte Photo Paper)
(Photo Paper Pro)
(Photo Paper Pro Matte)
(Photo Paper Plus Glossy)
The last profile is the one you want. Just above you will see the choice of "Automatic" or "Manual". Click on Manual and this force the printer to use the highlighted profile for all printing jobs.

Now click on DEFAULT.
Go back to the main Properties page and click on the General tab.
Near the bottom you will see "Printing Preferences"
click on that.
You should now be in a Canon ip4500 Printing preferences window.
Look for Print Quality and click "Manual"
Click on "Set"
Click on "Diffusion" and just above that there is a slider that should be all the way to the right.
Click "OK" to save the settings.
Now just below you will see "Color Settings"
Click "Custom" and then "Set"
Everyone sees colors a little different but the following settings print a photo that folks I show them too really like the balance of.
Cyan 4
Magenta -12
Yellow 0
Black 0
Intensity Slider in the middle
Enable ICM not checked (disabled)
Print Type set to Photo (you might want to try the other settings here to see how the prints look to your eyes)
Brightness Normal
Click OK to save settings and return to the Main Menu.
If you now go under the Profiles tab you should see you new profile there.
You can give it a special name like "Canon Excellent Profile Settings" clip_image001.gifor some other easy to remember name. This is the profile you want to use when you print a photo.
That is it...simple eh?
Now the other important part is in PhotoShop/PS Elements. Open the program and then open any old photo.
Under File, scroll down to Print Preview and click
If not open, click on "Show More Options"
Bring up "Color Management" in the box just below the "Show More Options"
For "Source Space" click ""Document"
This setting depend on the profile you shoot in, either Adobe RGB or sRGB. You choose the one you use.
Below that there is a setting for "Print Space"
You want to match that to your source, whether Adobe RGB or sRGB.
For the "Intent" letting I choose Perceptual.
Then click "Use Black Point Compensation" and that is it. Ready to print

My canon iP4500 will not use black ink on photopaper. If I tell it the paper is plain then it prints fine. If I tell it the paper is any type of photopaper the colours are great but there is no black ink...


If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

Canon iP4500 not printing yellow


take the print head with all the cartridges still installed out of the printer. take a soft microfiber cloth and gently wipe the exposed surface on the bottom of the printhead. You should get some ink to wipe off the printhead.. reinstall and retry your printing.

Can't print a pdf file


Sounds like you are using the PDF printer as your selected printer - this is for creating PDF files in which case you would give it a name.
If you have a PDF file open, simply select your printer (1610) as the printer to print to as with any other documents you print.
