If the wheel is rotated clockwise before counterclockwise round completes, the color of segment(s) corresponding to the number of steps the wheel is rotated clockwise returns to green. If the wheel keeps rotated counterclockwise over 1 round (24 steps), the color of segment(s) corresponding to the extra number of steps returns to green, starting with the "Start" segment in the figure below.

4-4) When the Easy-Scroll Wheel is rotated counterclockwise 1 round (24 steps), press the OK button. The color of all segments turns red. 5) Open the scanning unit (printer cover) to display the color pattern. If there is any step left un-selected (a blue segment remained in step 4) above), even the Stop/Reset button is not accepted.

4. MACHINE TRANSPORTATION
This section describes the procedures for transporting the machine for returning after repair, etc. (Photos for the MP810)
1) In the service mode, press the ON/OFF button to finish the mode, and confirm that the paper lifting plate of the sheet feed unit is raised. 2) Keep the print head and ink tanks installed in the carriage. See Caution 1 below. 3) Turn off the machine to securely lock the carriage in the home position. (When the machine is turned off, the carriage is automatically locked in place.) See Caution 2 below. 4) Slide the scanner lock switch to lock the scanner optical unit.

Caution:
(1) If the print head is removed from the machine and left alone by itself, ink (the pigment-based black ink in particular) is likely to dry. For this reason, keep the print head installed in the machine even during transportation. (2) Securely lock the carriage in the home position, to prevent the carriage from moving and applying stress to the carriage flexible cable, or causing ink leakage, during transportation.

Memo:
If the print head must be removed from the machine and transported alone, attach the protective cap (used when the packing was opened) to the print head (to protect the print head face from damage due to shocks).

TECHNICAL REFERENCE

1. NEW TECHNOLOGIES
MP810 / MP960: 1) Easy-Scroll Wheel
The operation panel is located at the front center. With the Easy-Scroll Wheel, a menu can be easily selected by rotating the wheel clockwise or counterclockwise and 4 buttons of COPY, SCAN, MEMORY CARD, and PHOTO/FILM which were used in the previous models are now eliminated. With the HOME button pressed, the initial screen can be displayed any time a user wishes. In addition, by pressing the NAVI button, instructions on operation and new functions are displayed on the LCD, significantly enhancing usability.

2) High-definition TFT LCD


The high-definition TFT color LCD provides a learer display than one in previous models. - MP810: 3.0 TFT LCD - MP960: 3.5 TFT LCD

3) Scanning resolution
With the Canon-made CCD scanner, the scanning resolution has been increased to 4,800 x 4,800 dpi.

4) Double encoder system


Through the double encoder system, both the LF roller and eject roller diameters will be corrected to improve the dot placement accuracy. In addition, uneven printing at the trailing edge of paper in borderless printing can be prevented at a minimum reduction of print speed, achieving higher throughput than the previous models.

6) Remaining ink amount indication sequence in 2006 products


In previous models, indication of the remaining ink amount differs between the individual ink tank system and the FINE cartridge system. In the 2006 models, the unified specifications have been adopted. Major changes from the 2005 models: - In Direct printing, printing will not be suspended at "Low Ink" indication. (Printing will start without a click by a user at the "Low Ink" message.) - The remaining ink status will be indicated by the following 4 levels:

Low: Out: Empty:

No raw ink is detected by the optical method. (From this point, the remaining ink amount will be determined by the dot count.) No ink remains according to the dot count. A warning will be displayed to indicate that ink may have run out. No raw ink is detected by the optical method, and the dot count value exceeds the threshold of complete exhaustion of ink. A warning will be displayed to indicate that ink has run out. By pressing and holding the Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds or longer, the function to detect the remaining ink amount can be disabled.

Unknown: Raw ink remains, but the dot count value exceeds the threshold of complete exhaustion of ink. By pressing and holding the Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds or longer, the function to detect the remaining ink amount can be disabled.

2-1

The remaining ink amount will be checked at any of the following timings: - At the end of paper ejection*1 - At the end of print head cleaning - At the end of initialization - At the end of the following operation: Cover open => Ink tank removal and installation => Cover close - In duplex printing, at the end of paper ejection after printing on the back side of paper*1 *1: Not every paper ejection. Only after the dot count exceeds the specified value.

2-2

Specific to MP810: 1) Print speed


The new print head (a total of 4,608 nozzles with 3 sizes of ink droplet) and a new process have achieved higher photo print speed (3 sizes of ink droplet available only with a specific media type, size, and print mode). - 4 x 6 photo (PP-101, standard, borderless)*: Approx. 21 sec. * Based on Canon standard pattern. Print speed may vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, page coverage, type of paper used and does not take into account data processing time on host computer. Note: Notations for the Americas should be confirmed with the related marketing section of each sales company in the Americas.

2) Design
A smart design featuring flip-up mechanism in the operation portion (the LCD retractable when not in use), inheriting the MP950 design. Compared with the previous model, the MP810 body size is reduced by 14 mm in height and 74 mm in depth, realizing more compact body that fits any home use environment. Round corners of the body fits well in any living space.

Specific to MP960: 1) Design


Elegant-looking housing in silver. A blue LED is adopted for the Power, Auto Sheet Feeder, and Cassette lamps for higher visibility. The document cover looks like a flat board separated from the main unit and even like floating in the air, which emphasizes MP960's originality as a flagship model in a more compact body (37 mm lower than the MP950).

2-2. Moisturizing Timer Sequence (MP810 only)


If the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened for a long time, the print head is left uncapped and pre-printing ink ejection is not performed for that duration. After that, ink may not be ejected at start of printing or at pre-printing ink ejection operation. To prevent the print head nozzles from getting dried, each opening of the scanning unit (printer cover) is counted as well as its duration, and capping or purging is performed according to the counted value to moisturize the nozzles.
