FAQ: Using AirPrint

Solution:


You can use your Canon printer for AirPrint, following the procedures explained below.
AirPrint can use a local wireless LAN to print email, photos, web pages, and other documents from iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch directly to your printer.

Checking if the printer supports AirPrint


IMPORTANT
To use your Canon printer for AirPrint, the printer software (firmware) version must be 2.000 or later. Following the procedures below, check the version of your printer firmware, and update it when necessary.
For update of the printer firmware, a USB cable and a PC (Windows or Mac OS X) are necessary.

Print the Nozzle Check Pattern to check the printer firmware version.
-> [ Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern ]
The firmware version is printed at the bottom of the pattern as "Ver. X.XXX."

  • (A) when the firmware version is "Ver. 2.000" or later:

The printer supports AirPrint. You do not need to update the firmware.

  • (B) when the firmware version is earlier than "Ver. 2.000" or when no version is printed:

The printer does not support AirPrint. You need to update the firmware.
To update the firmware, obtain the Firmware Updater from the Canon download library, and follow the Update Procedure contained in the downloaded package.

Checking the connection environment for AirPrint

Check the devices and their connection environment for AirPrint.

(A) Access point (IEEE802.11b/g/n)
As a relay device for data communication between the Internet and your network devices at home (such as an Apple device and printer), an access point is required.

(B) Apple device (iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) to use a printer
The Apple device (iOS 4.2 or later iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) to use a printer needs to be connected to the access point.

(C) Canon printer
Your Canon printer and Apple device (iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) be on the same wireless LAN.
The Canon printer firmware version must be 2.000 or later.

When the above is confirmed, you are ready to use AirPrint.


ATTENTION
- When connecting to the network
For access point settings and functions, refer to the instruction manuals of the access point, or contact the manufacturer of the access point.
For Apple device (iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) settings, refer to the instruction manuals of that Apple device, or contact Apple.
