Question about Canon i9900 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I have a canon i9900 printer. Results with the Photo Paper Pro I have been great but now it seems the paper has been discontinued and the Photo Paper Pro II is not compatible. Would a paper profile on the Pro II give a professional quality to use with the i9900? Will the inks for the i9900 continue to be available?

Paper thickness error


From page 88 of the User Guide.

For your printer you can use the following types of paper and other media.

??  Size

• Standard paper: From Legal size (8.5 x 14.0 in.) to A5 size (5.83 x 8.27 in.)
• Non-standard paper: From 3.54 x 4.72 in. to 8.5 x 23.0 in.
• Others: Envelopes (US Com. #10 and European DL)

Important ?ž₪ Do not use the following types of paper. Using such paper will not only produce unsatisfactory results, but can also cause the printer to jam or malfunction.

• Folded, curled or wrinkled paper
• Wet paper
• Paper that is too thin (less than 17 lb.)
Paper that is too thick* (more than 28 lb.)
• Picture postcards
• Postcards with an affixed photo or sticker
• Envelopes with a double flap
• Sealed envelopes
• Envelopes with an embossed or treated surface
• Paper with holes (such as loose-leaf paper)
* non-Canon branded paper


??  Weight

17 to 28 lb.

Do not use paper heavier than this (except for supported Canon-brand media), as it
could jam in the printer.
??  Types

The following types of media can be used. For more information about the media and the
printing methods, refer to the specific sections.

Plain paper: Refer to the printed Quick Start Guide.
?ž¡ Envelopes
?ž¡ High Resolution Paper HR-101N
?ž¡ Glossy Photo Paper GP-301/GP-301N
?ž¡ High Gloss Photo Film HG-201
?ž¡ Glossy Photo Cards FM-101
?ž¡ Photo Paper Pro PR-101
?ž¡ Photo Paper Pro PC-101S
?ž¡ Transparencies CF-102
?ž¡ T-Shirt Transfers TR-201
?ž¡ Banner Paper


If you are receiving a paper thickness error (are there lights flashing?) is the thickness greater than 28 lbs? You can refer to the User's Guide beginning on page 140 for infomration on error light patterns.

Have you set the Paper Thickness Lever properly? Looking at the printer from the front; To the left for normal paper; To the right for thicker product (e.g. envelopes, t-shirt transfers, banner paper).

Trust this is helpful. Please vote. :)

My canon i9900 says thatthere is a paper jam but i have opened it up, looked everywhere and there was nothing in it. i uplugged it, took out the battery and re-set. what else can it do?


Just a suggestion- you might have to disassemble it to the point where you can see the individual gears that run the paper roller. Sometimes when a paper jam occurs, the motor and gears are still trying to feed the paper, and a gear tooth will break or jam. In this case, the "brain" of the machine still thinks the paper is jammed, since it isn't feeding, and displays the paper jam message. If it's a broken tooth on a gear, you will have to find a replacement gear for it. I had this problem once, and found another discarded printer a friend had, and got the gear out of it. You might be able to get a replacement gear from an Authorized Canon Repair Facility- if you google that, you will have some places to try. Good luck, this is a common problem with the plastic gears they use.

It will print colors fine on standard paper, but will not print on any type of photo paper.


I don't understand the comment that your canon will not print on any type of photo paper. I own the same printer. I have found that the canon i9900 does not print well at all on generic photo papers, it does poorly on Kodak photo papers, good on HP and excellent on Epson. Are you selecting Preferences/media type, then photo paper, paper pro, paper glossy or matte. What version is your driver. I updated mine last year and it did not work, I still use the original from the install disk, which I have.

Why does the entire photo printout with a pinkage color overlay when indicating using glossy photo paper, even different photo paper. This occurs with several different programs not just Photoshop. I've...


That happens if you put photo cyan where the plain cyan ink should be, also photo magenta is too weak to be used in the magenta slot. I've also seen generic inks that weren't the right colors.

Color is off when I print on 11x17 hp or epson paper


Hi. I have been using an i9900 for about 4-5 years with several different papers, and yes, there is a big difference in colour rendering between different papers, even those from the same maker.

You need to go to the paper manufacturer's website and look for the profile for that particular type of paper and your printer. I don't know if HP provides, but I do know that Ilford (my favourite) and Kodak do.

Once you have downloaded the profile, you need to copy it to the proper location in Windows. The path is:

C:\Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color.

I have no idea how to handle the problem with a Mac.

You can expect the colour to be off if you are using generic inks.

I hope that this helps. If you want more info, contact me at ctsnell@sympatico.ca

Canon i9900 black ink smudging


ok, What cartridges are you using, Are the Canon cartridges?
What paper are you using, is it Canon paper?

If you are to both of these it could be wise ordering a printhead, but this is mostly caused in the uk by None Canon Paper.

Please let me know what you are using?
