  • Place the printer away from direct sunlight and preferably closer to the computer and the wireless router.
  • Remove the protective tapes surrounding the Pixma printer and discard them.

  • Remove the power cord from the sealed packaging and connect it to the printer and the power source. Turn on the printer.
  • Select the language and press the OK button.
  • Open the front door and the cartridge access door. Wait for the print head to come to its optimal position.
  • Unpack the ink cartridges from the cover.
  • Gently place the color ink cartridge into the slot and push it until it snaps in place (repeat the step for the black ink cartridge). Close the cartridge access door.
