Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I860 will not print a 4 x 6 photo on a windows 7 pc. It gives a message that I have installed the wrong paper. It only wants to print full sheet size photos. I installed the canon add on module drivers and easy photo program.

Set Envelopes Correctly Before setting envelopes, press down on all four corners and edges of the envelopes to remove curls and bends, as well as any air contained.

Note: The flap of the envelope should be straightened if bent. If the envelope is curled, hold the opposite corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction. If the leading edge of the envelope is puffed or curled up, use a pen, etc. to press the envelope flat and sharpen the crease. (Press the envelope completely flat, working from the middle to the edge.)

  1. Set envelopes to the right side of the sheet feeder. Set envelopes with their longer side vertically and the flap either at the bottom or on the left.

  2. Pinch and slide the paper guide until it firmly resets against the left side of the stacked envelopes.

Driver installation progam says "print head needs alignment" but doesn't say how to do it.


Canon i860

Align printhead automatically:

1) Be sure that the printer is powered on and letter size plain white paper is loaded in the sheet feeder

2) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button, and release it when the Power lamp blinks four times.

The alignment pattern sheet should now be printed out. Wait for the pattern sheet to finish printing.

The printer should stop prompting you for this procedure.

I have 4 x6 printer paper and the printer only shows standard 81/2 by 11


If you use windows photo gallery to print, it will allow you to set the paper size and type, otherwise in your control panel/printers and printing preferences you can set the 4x6 paper size.

Large black ink tank is not being used by the printer.


The little cartridges are pigment for photo printing. The Large black cart is ink for plain paper (usually text) printing. If you select a photo paper in the print setup menu, you will use very little of the ink.
To check the function of the large cart print out a test sheet from the printer maintenance menu. You may need to run a head cleaning to get all the nozzles to work.

I865 flashing 3 times


That's a "paper jam" error that can be fixed by removing all paper and pressing the resume/cancel button. Then replace the paper in the feed chute.
The printer can straighten out a crooked feed to a very limited degree. The photo feeder attachment can interfere with a really full 8x11 feed. The i860 is very susceptible to overfilling the 8 1/2 x11 feeder without notice until you try to print. I usually remove the photo feeder until I need to print photos, and keep the regular paper feeder no more than 3/4 full. I pull out the regular paper when printing photos.

Printing to 4 x 6 paper


Hello oyam26,
For any paper mismatch issue, first thing you do is try to set the paper type to plain. This will fix the issue in most of the cases.

Cannon MP160 How to Print both sides of the Paper???


Set Duplex Printing (Windows) For details on how to set duplex printing, see below: 1. Select 'Properties' from the Print dialog. Note: Properties may be indicated as Advanced, depending on the application software. 2. Click the Page Setup tab. 3. In the Printing Type section, select 'Normal-size Printing', 'Fit-to-Page Printing', 'Scaled Printing', or 'Page Layout Printing'. 4. Select 'Duplex Printing'. Note: When a media type other than Plain Paper, Photo Paper Plus Double Sided, or Postcard is selected in the Media Type menu, duplex printing cannot be performed. 5. Specify Staple Side. 1. The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. 2. Click the Staple Side drop-down arrow and select the setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list. 3. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width 6. When the setting is completed, click the OK button at the bottom of the window. Note: If a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab: The document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper when printing starts. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side. If Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab: The document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time, when printing starts. Load the paper according to the displayed messages. 7. You will be prompted, while printing, to remove the printed page and reload it in the ASF. 8. Dependent on the number of pages to print, you will need to repeat step 7 until all pages have printed. Back to Top

Red line on last quarter of photos


I assume that the red line is not on the photos themselves (make sure this is the case - if they're scanned photos, it might be a scanner problem). If this is a 4" by 6" paper, set it in the printer after bending it in the opposite direction. 1) Set a sheet of paper on the printing side of the paper to be printed on. (If the print surface is touched by hand, the print surface may be soiled by skin oils, and the print quality may deteriorate.) 2) To bend the paper, hold the paper in a rounded shape for about 10 seconds. 3) Remove the paper not to be used in printing, and confirm that, when laid flat with the print side up, the center of the paper to be printed on is raised between 2 to 5 mm (0.2 in.) . 4) The curled paper to be printed on should be set in the printer, and printed, sheet by sheet. Canon recommends using Photo Paper Pro PC-101S 4" x 6" sized paper. When using PC-101S, printing is performed at the center of paper and streaks or uneven printing is avoided. If this is an A4 sized paper, try using Photo Paper Pro PR-101 paper, and make sure that the printing quality is set to "high" or "fine". If nothing helps, I would suggest trying a new ink cartridge. If you still have this problem and nothing solves it, call a repairman.
