Data Is Not Printed According to the Print Settings

If the device you are using does not support functions displayed in the [Print Settings] screen, those settings are not applied.

If the functions are not supported by the device you are using, the following operation is performed.

[Output Method] > [Store]

For devices that do not support user inbox storing, normal printing is executed.

[Output Method] > [Secure Print]

For devices that do not support the Secure Print function, normal printing is executed.

[Dept. ID Mgt.] > On

Printing Documents Takes Time

When using the Data Conversion Service for printing a Microsoft Office file, uploading and downloading data may take several minutes depending on the content of the data to be printed and the communication environment you are using. The method for shortening the processing time is as follows.

When using the Data Conversion Service

If you can tap [Print] in the [Preview] screen before all rendering by the Data Conversion Service is complete, printing is started. Because the rendering and printing processes are being executed in parallel, the processing time is shortened. However, if you specify the print range in an Excel file (xls and xlsx), you cannot do so until all the data has finished being converted.

When not using the Data Conversion Service

Files that have simple layouts and text may only suffer minimal layout errors if you do not use the Data Conversion Service. If there appear to be no problems when you check the preview, tapping [Print] without tapping [Image Correction] will print the file with the mobile terminal OS performing the rendering process. In this case, although the processing time is shortened compared to using the Data Conversion Service, there is a possibility of the file being printed with an incorrect layout.

A Time Out Error Is Displayed After Printing Starts

Depending on the content of the print data, the time from the start of printing in this app and print output may take some minutes.

Because mobile terminal OSes support multi-tasking, print processing continues for the enabled period even if this app is not being displayed.

If the enabled period is exceeded, the job will be canceled.

PDF Direct Printing Restrictions of Use

For devices equipped with the PDF direct printing or PS printing function, send the PDF file directly to the device to be printed.
Take care of the following when doing so.

  • The print preview displayed in the [Preview] screen and the actual print result may differ.
  • If you set [Preview] screen > [Print Settings] screen > [Staple], the document may be stapled at different positions to those indicated in the thumbnail image in the [Preview] screen.
  • If an error occurs when printing a PDF file in which a password has been set, an error message is not displayed on the mobile terminal. An error message is displayed on the control panel of the device.
  • You cannot delete a page you do not want to print in the enlarged preview screen. To specify the pages to print, do so in the [Print Settings] screen > [Print Range].

Cannot Scan

If you cannot scan, check the following.

style_linkIs the file name set at the device single-byte letters/numbers?

style_linkIs the resolution of the scanned data too high?

style_linkAre the management settings of the device correct?

style_linkAre the network settings of the device correct?

Is the file name set at the device single-byte letters/numbers?

If you are scanning from an imageRUNNER ADVANCE using the <Scan and Send> function, and set a file name at the device that includes diacritical marks or certain symbols such as double-byte characters, umlauts, and/or accents, the data cannot be correctly received in this app and a transmission failure error message will be displayed at the device.
When specifying a file name at the device, enter a file name using single-byte roman characters or single-byte symbols (ASCII characters).

Is the resolution of the scanned data too high?

If you scan data with a high resolution setting, the operations of this app may become unstable. In order to stabilize operations, reduce the resolution when scanning.

Are the management settings of the device correct?

If [Management Settings] > [License/Other] > [MEAP Settings] > [Use SSL]/[Use TLS] is set to [On] on an imageRUNNER ADVANCE device and the version of certificate used is “X.509v1”, you may not be able to configure scan settings on a mobile terminal even if the Canon Mobile Scanning MEAP Application is installed in the device.
Set [Use SSL]/[Use TLS] to [Off] or change the device authentication version to “X.509v3” or later. For details, check with the device administrator.

Are the network settings of the device correct?

If you set [On] for [Preferences] > [Network] > [TCP/IP Settings] > [Proxy Settings] at the imageRUNNER ADVANCE device, scanning may not operate correctly.

Scan Data is Separated and Stored

In the following cases, scanned data is split into multiple files.

  • When scanning multiple originals and outputting them as JPEG format files.
  • When the <Divide into Pages> function is set at the device when scanning from an imageRUNNER ADVANCE using the <Scan and Send> function.
    Handle data split into multiple files as follows.
