Steps To Optimize The Print Speed On The Canon Pixma Printer

“Is your Canon PIXMA printer taking more time to print than usual?” If yes, try these five simple tricks to optimize the print speed on your Canon PIXMA printer.

USING A STABLE INTERNET CONNECTION

  • An unstable or poor internet connection will be the main reason behind most of the problems. If you have connected your printer and the computer or smartphone over a wireless network, then ensure that your internet connection is stable and active.

FONT SELECTION

  • Two types of fonts are available: TrueType fonts and printer-based fonts. Both these types are used for different purposes. When printing, it is important to choose the right font. For fast printing, it is recommended to use printer-based fonts.

BARCODE RENDERING

  • You can also use the Barcode rendering feature to optimize the print speed on your Canon PIXMA printer. Contact us to know more about the barcode rendering feature.

IMAGE SIZING & RESOLUTION

  • Reducing the size of the document will also help you optimize the print speed on your printer. Replace the high-resolution designs with simpler ones. Before sending a print job to your Canon PIXMA printer, ensure that no print jobs are queued because this will also affect the print speed on your printer.

PRINTER STORAGE

  • Low or insufficient storage space can also slow down the print speed. If necessary, use the “Allow Static Objects” or “Allow Static Graphics” option. Contact our technical experts if you need further assistance regarding the same.

Methods To Improve The Print Quality On Your Canon Pixma Printer

“Not happy with the print quality of your printer?” Don’t worry. There are some tricks to improve it.

ADJUSTING THE PRINT SPEED

  • The color saturation should be set to a low level to get outstanding printouts. You can do this by configuring the print speed setting to high and adjusting the maximum resolution setting in the Print application.

SAVING POWER

  • Turn off your Canon PIXMA printer when it is not in use. Avoid removing the ink cartridges unnecessarily from the printer.

MAINTAINING THE PRINTER PROPERLY

  • Dust or unwanted particles that enter your printer can also affect the print quality. Clean the printer periodically. Wrap the printer with a protective cover to avoid unwanted particles from entering it.

USING GENUINE AND RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS

  • Using non-genuine or incompatible paper types can also affect the print quality. So, always ensure that the genuine FINE ink cartridges are installed on your printer. Also, ensure that the recommended paper type is loaded into the tray or cassette of your printer. Adjust the print heads regularly.

Replacing Empty, Incompatible, Or Damaged Ink Cartridge On Canon Pixma Printer

Checking the ink levels of the cartridges periodically and replacing them will prevent you from facing the print quality issue. If the ink cartridge level is empty or low, then replace it with the FINE ink cartridge.

You can also replace the ink cartridge if the installed one is non-genuine or damaged.

  • Get the replacement FINE ink cartridge from the Canon Store.
  • Remove the empty or damaged ink cartridge from its slot.
  • Unpack the new ink cartridge and install it into the slot.
  • Print a test page to check the quality of the new ink cartridge.
