Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Resetting to "normal" print

I must have pushed the wrong button some where. My printer is copying on "photo pro" mode and I can't seem to get it back to normal copying. The photo mode takes forever. I have tried turning it off and on again; pushing the reset button, but it persists in photo pro. Can you help please?

I am guessing that you do not have the Manual.

Try this site for a Manual:

http://support-au.canon.com.au/EN/search?canonsearch=1&lang=EN&category=All-in-One+Printers&series=All-in-One+Printers&model=PIXMA+MP780&menu=Manual

It should have the instructions you need.

Have you tried the Printers Help pages?

Good luck.

Turn off the printer, push the resume button and keep on pushing.
Press the power button and keep on pushing. Now let go off the resume button,
but not the power button. Push the resume button twice, then let go off all buttons.
You are now in service mode.

To leave the service mode, give the power button one push.

Push the resume buttons once, after that the power button once.
The first information page appears.
Push resume twice, then power once: You get the second page.

Newer PIXMA-printers print the first page as a test for the nozzles.
The second page contains a lot of information.

Our advice: Print the second page before and after reset of the waste ink counter.
Only then can you be sure that the reset was a success.

To reset the waste ink counter right now, push resume four times and after that power once.

Important: Before starting with normal printing again, switch off the printer.
That gets you out of service mode.

Then switch on the printer again and print, as you like

MP780 copy mode/resolution


Mine was stuck on fine photo resolution too and it wouldn't print in normal black. I tried lots of things and the only thing that seemed to work was pushing the photo button and then pushing the copy button again. Good luck.

Says Photo print but want normal print


On the MP750 (and MP780...) there are 3 small "buttons" on each side of the screen. On the right side, the lowest button controls the movement from plain to glossy to high resolution to photoprint. So, if you are on one of these settings and want to switch, you press this button. Pressing it only once will affect only the paper size, but pressing the button twice will control the resolution. To move among the options use the arrow buttons (left and right) under the menu...then just push the ok button. It worked for me.

Copying


Maybe you pushed the small button on the left "two sided"...I did and got the same reading...I pushed it again to return. I think that is what happened...
