You may also want to click the Advanced button in the Main tab... Click the Color tab, check that Color Adjustment is enabled and then adjust the color settings such as Color Balance, Output Style, and Brightness...

Page 157

You may not be able to achieve satisfactory performance with an ink tank that has been re-filled or that uses third party ink... It is recommended that you use ink tanks specifically designed for use with the Canon BJ cartridge...

Page 158

Printed and On-screen Colors Do Not Match The colors you see on the screen do not match the colors you see in the printed copy of the same image... For example, objects that appear blue on the screen are printed purple and objects that appear pale green on the screen are printed dark green...

Page 159

You may also want to click the Advanced button in the Main tab, click the Color tab and adjust the color settings such as Color Balance, Output Style, and Brightness... If Color Adjustment is off, click the checkbox to turn it on...

Page 168

If you are using Scaled Printing to enlarge or reduce the print job so it fits on the paper in the printer, first set the Page Size in the Page Layout tab to the size specified in the application program... Next, set the Printer Page Size to the size of the paper in the printer...

Page 169

Page 170

After removing the orange protective cap and tape, do not attempt to re-attach them to the BJ cartridge... Re-attaching the tape or cap can cause air bubbles or trap dirt or dust and clog the ink nozzles...

Page 171

Changing Print Quality to Fine in the printer driver may improve the quality of printed straight lines...

Page 172

When you use High Resolution Paper, Glossy Photo Paper, or other special media, always load the pages with the print side facing up... Only one side of these media is treated with a special coating for better ink absorption...

Page 173

Curling occurs most frequently with small paper sizes such as A5... To avoid this curling problem, try not to use small paper sizes to print documents that contain photographs or illustrations...

Page 174

If you are printing on media that requires a few minutes to dry, remove each page from the paper output tray as it is ejected from the printer... This prevents the next page from stacking on top of a printed page before it is dry...

Page 175

In the printer driver, set Print Quality to Fine... The Fine setting reduces the tendency for ink to spread in printing color documents that require large amounts of ink, and reduces the tendency for ink to spread where black areas are adjacent to colored areas...

Page 176

The Intensity setting in the printer driver can be used to adjust print density (that is, the amount of ink used to print)... Lowering the print density setting can reduce the tendency for ink to spread in color photographs or illustrations...

Page 177

If you print on paper thicker than the allowed maximum weight of 28 lb (105 g/m2), the print head may scratch the printed surface of the page... If you experience difficulty when printing on thick paper, clean the print head...

Page 178

If you execute a high density print job on plain paper, the paper may absorb too much ink and curl, and the print head may scratch the surface of the curled page... Lower the Intensity setting...

Page 179

If the Nozzle Check Pattern prints normally, there may be a problem in the application program... For details, refer to the documentation of your application program...

Page 180

Set Print Quality to Fine and print again... This reduces uneven coloration you may see in a document where a large amount of ink is used...

Page 181

Check the Halftoning setting in the Quality tab of the printer driver... The Diffusion setting smoothes uneven or streaked colors...

Page 182

If the size of the paper loaded in the printer does not match the page size setting in the printer driver, part of each page may not print...

Page 183

You may not be able to print correctly with a WPS (Windows Printing System) driver installed in your system... Confirm whether or not a WPS driver is installed in your system...

Page 184

The BJC-2100 is a QuickDraw printer and is not a PostScript printer... Therefore, if you use an application program that only supports PostScript, the lines of characters and figures may print with unnatural notches... Always use an application program that supports QuickDraw...

Page 185

In the printer driver, you can adjust the color tones of the image by changing the density of each color (cyan, magenta, yellow and black)... For example, you can lower the magenta setting when the reds are too dark or raise the cyan setting when the blues are too light...

Page 186

In the printer driver, you can specify the contrast among intermediate tones between black and white... For example, adjusting the brightness toward Light makes the overall image brighter, with stronger contrast in the light areas and lower contrast in the dark areas...

Page 187

The Output Style settings in the printer driver allow you to specify whether intermediate tones are emphasized in the printout or primary colors are printed more brightly...

Page 188

If Output Style is grayed out and cannot be used, check Color Adjustment in the checkbox... For Windows 98, confirm that Use ICM is not checked...
