  1. Ink droplets can be placed with a pitch of 1/4800 inch at minimum.
  2. Document print speeds are the average of ESAT (Word, Excel, PDF) in Office Category Test for the default simplex mode, ISO/IEC 24734.
    Photo print speed is based on the default setting using ISO/JIS-SCID N2 on Photo Paper Plus Glossy II and does not take into account data processing time on host computer.
    Print speed may vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, page coverage, type of paper used etc.
  3. Paper Type NOT supported for borderless printing are as follows: Envelope, High Resolution Paper, T-Shirt Transfer, Photo Stickers.
  4. (Please visit https://asia.canon/support to check OS compatibility and to download the latest driver updates).
  5. The performance of the printer may be reduced under certain temperature and humidity conditions.
  6. For the temperature and humidity conditions of papers such as photo paper, refer to the paper's packaging or the supplied instructions.
  7. Acoustic Noise is measured based on ISO7779 standard with default setting.
  8. Print: When printing ISO/JIS-SCID N2 on A4 size plain paper using default settings.
  9. Page yields may vary depending on content coverage, print settings, temperature, humidity, and frequency of printing.
  10. Declared yield value is the estimated value based on Canon individual test method using the ISO/IEC 19752 monochrome chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottle after initial setup.
  11. The Economy mode reduces the ink consumption by lowering the density. More pages can be printed using this mode.
  12. Declared yield value is in accordance with ISO/IEC 24711, using the ISO/IEC 24712 colour chart. Values obtained by continuous printing.
    This product is a monochrome inkjet printer.
    Print colour document with optional colour cartridge.
    Once the installed colour cartridge is empty, please replace with the contact protector or a new colour cartridge.

  • To keep printer's performance, Canon printer performs cleaning automatically according to its condition. When the printer performs cleaning, a small amount of ink is consumed. In this case, all colours of ink may be consumed. [Cleaning function] The cleaning function helps the printer to suck air bubbles or ink itself from the nozzle and thus prevents print quality degradation or nozzle clogging.
  • The repairing parts for printers will be available five years after production is discontinued. Depending on your model, we may ask you to replace it with a new one, or one with almost the same performance as a maintenance service. In this case, it may be that you cannot use supplies or accessories for your model or the compatible OS will be changed.
  • To obtain good printing quality, use up ink within six months after opening.
  • Depending on your terminal, such as a computer or a smartphone, or the operating system of your terminal, such as your computer or smartphone, the estimated ink level information or message displayed on the screen of your terminal may be different from the information or message displayed on the operation panel of the printer. Also, a part of the estimated ink level message displayed on the operation panel of the printer may not be displayed and / or may be displayed at a different point in time. Canon recommends that you use the information and message displayed on the operation panel of the printer as your reference. Note, however, that such information and message are displayed items serve only as a guideline information.
  • Even when black-only or grayscale printing is selected, depending on the printing material and driver settings used, colour inks might still be consumed when printing. When the remaining ink level of any ink tank falls below the lower limit line, Canon recommends that you refill that ink bottle with the corresponding colour of ink.
  • The estimated page yield and/or print cost stated in brochures/catalogs/websites etc. is/are determined not based on the initial set of bundled ink bottles, but based on subsequent sets of ink bottles after print head nozzles have been filled with ink from the initial set of ink bottles.
  • The warranty term for details, contact a Canon authorised sales representative in the country or region you live in. The warranty covers only the printer main body excluding consumables such as print media and ink / ink bottles even during the warranty period.
  • Ink bottles sold are generally meant for use with printers sold in the same region. The ink bottles may bear unique labels or configurations and may not be compatible for use with printers sold in another region. To ensure optimal performance of your printer, please check with your local Canon office or authorised Canon reseller before relocating your printer from the location of purchase.
  • Using non-genuine inks may affect the printer's performance and / or the print quality. In some rare occasions, although there are no safety issues, using non-genuine inks has caused overheating of the print head and smoke emission from the print head due to the absence of an ingredient found in genuine ink. (Does not apply to usage of all non-genuine inks).
  • Please take note that if the printer fault or breakdown is due to the usage of non-genuine inks, repair charges are applicable even if the claim is within the warranty period.
