Prevent paper abrasion DEFAULT

Set Prevent paper abrasion (Windows)

By using the Prevent paper abrasion function, the space between the print head and paper is increased, preventing print head contact with the paper.

Note: The following images are from the Canon PIXMA MP500 printer driver in Windows XP. Some images may appear different based on the operating system and specific printer being used.

After confirming that the printer is connected to the printer, and that the printer is powered on, perform the following:

  1. Open the printer Properties. (Click here for detailed instructions.)


    Note: On some versions of Windows the Maintenance tab can also be accessed through the printer's Preferences. This setting must be set from the Printers Folder. If the printer Properties / Preferences are accessed from an application, the setting will be unavailable (grayed out).

  2. Click the 'Maintenance tab' and click 'Custom Settings'.



  3. Check 'Prevent paper abrasion' and click 'Send'.



  4. When the confirmation message apprears to write the settings to the printer, click 'OK'.



    Note: It is recommended that the Prevent paper abrasion setting be disabled after printing.
    Deselect Prevent paper abrasion, and click Send.

  5. Click 'OK' or 'Apply' at the Properties window of the printer.

1. Roll up the paper in the opposite direction to the paper curl as shown below.

2. Check that the paper is now flat.

We recommend printing curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.

Note

• Depending on the media type, the paper may be smudged or may not be fed properly even if it is not

curled inward. In such cases, follow the procedure described below to curl the paper outward within 0.1
inch / 3 mm (B) in height before printing. This may improve the print result.

(C) Printing side

We recommend printing paper that has been curled outward one sheet at a time.

Adjust the setting to prevent paper abrasion.

Adjusting the setting to prevent paper abrasion will widen the clearance between the print head and the loaded
paper. If you notice abrasion even with the media type set correctly to match the loaded paper, set the printer to
prevent paper abrasion on the computer.

Print speed may be reduced if you apply the setting to prevent paper abrasion setting.

* Readjust the setting not to prevent paper abrasion once printing is complete. If not, this setting remains
enabled for all subsequent print jobs.

In the Canon IJ Printer Utility, select Custom Settings in the pop-up menu, select the Prevent paper abrasion
check box, and then click Apply.

If the intensity is set high, reduce the intensity setting and try printing again.

If you are using plain paper to print images with high intensity, the paper may absorb too much ink and become
wavy, causing paper abrasion.

Reduce the intensity setting in the printer driver and try printing again.

    is there any reason not to use it? Am I doing some long-term damage to my printer by leaving it on?
    To start with. The Prevent Paper Abrasion is a good way of solving your current issue and it won’t damage your printer nor will it affect your print quality, it’s mostly used for printing on soft or thick matte paper and envelopes..

    The normal way to clean the underside of the head is with the bottom plate cleaning but that’s mostly for cleaning the platen area and rollers cause by over spray..

    The other way is to move the print carriage to the left side of the printer and clean the parking area with window cleaner by spraying everything and then clean up the damp areas with paper towels, (pat dry), try giving the wiper blade a clean with cotton buds too.

    This is an area that seldom get cleaned by the user and needs a clean every six months or so, depending on your print volume, it will help to keep your printer in good working condition..

    P.S. cleaning of the parking area on the new Pro 200/300 printers is near next to impossible because of where they put the new LED screens..

    Abrasion prevent paper

    Paper Is Smudged/Printed Surface Is Scratched

    Check 1: Did you confirm the paper and print quality settings?


    Check 2: Is the appropriate type of paper being used? Check the following

    • Check to see if the paper you are printing on is suitable for your printing purpose.

    ->[ Media Types You Can Use ]

    • When performing Borderless Printing, make sure that the paper you are using is suitable for Borderless Printing.If the paper you are using is not suitable for Borderless Printing, the print quality may be reduced at the top and bottom edges of the paper.

    ->[ Printing Area ]


    Check 3: Load the paper after correcting its curl

    When using Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss, even if the sheet is curled, load one sheet at a time as it is. If you roll up this paper to flatten, this may cause cracks on the surface of the paper and reduce the print quality.

    Turn the paper over and reload it to print on the other side.

    Leaving the paper loaded on the Rear Tray for a long time may cause the paper to curl. In this case, load the paper with the other side facing up. It may resolve the problem.

    We recommend putting unused paper back into the package and keeping it on a level surface.

    1.With the printing side (A) facing up, cover the paper with a fresh sheet of plain paper to avoid staining or scratching the surface.

    2.Roll up the paper in the opposite direction to the paper curl as shown below.

    3.Check to see that the paper curl is within approximately 0.08 to 0.2 inches /2 to 5 mm (B) in height.

    We recommend printing curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.

    REFERENCE

    • For Paper That Curls Inward When It Is Printed

    Depending on the media type, the paper may be smudged or may not be fed properly even if it is not curled inward. In such cases, follow the procedure described below to curl the paper outward before printing. This may improve the print result.

    1. With the printing side (A) facing up, cover the paper with a fresh sheet of plain paper to avoid staining or scratching the surface.

    2. Roll up the paper as shown below.

    3. Check to see that the paper curl is within approximately 0.08 to 0.2 inches / 2 to 5 mm (B) in height.

    We recommend printing paper that has been curled outward one sheet at a time.


    Check 4: If you are printing on thick paper, select the Prevent paper abrasion setting

    Selecting the Prevent paper abrasion setting will widen the clearance between the Print Head and the loaded paper. If you notice abrasion even with the media type set correctly to match the loaded paper, set the printer to prevent paper abrasion by using the printer driver.

    * Deactivate the Prevent paper abrasion setting once printing is complete. If not, this setting remains enabled for all subsequent print jobs.

    Open the printer properties dialog box, and in Custom Settings in the Maintenance sheet, select the Prevent paper abrasion check box, and then click Send.

    In the Canon IJ Printer Utility, select Custom Settings in the pop-up menu, select the Prevent paper abrasion check box, and then click Send.


    Check 5: If you are printing on board paper or especially thick paper (from 0.6 mm / 23 mil to 1.2 mm / 47 mil), select Board Paper from Media Type in the printer driver

    The printed surface may be scratched or a malfunction may occur if Media Type is set to anything other than Board Paper. Paper that is thicker than 1.2 mm / 47 mil cannot be used.


    Check 6: If the intensity is set high, reduce the Intensity setting in the printer driver and try printing again

    If you are using plain paper to print images with high intensity, the paper may absorb too much ink and become wavy, causing paper abrasion.

    Reduce the Intensity setting in the printer driver and try printing again.

    1.Open the printer properties dialog box.

    Click Here: Printer Driver

    * Before clicking here to open the printer properties dialog box, quit the running application software.

    2.On the Main sheet, select Manual for Color/Intensity, and then click Set.

    3.Drag the Intensity slide bar on the Color Adjustment sheet to adjust the intensity.

    1.Open the Print dialog box.

    2.Select Color Options in the pop-up menu.

    3.Drag the Intensity slide bar to set the intensity.


    Check 7: Is printing performed beyond the recommended printing area?

    If you are printing beyond the recommended printing area of your printing paper, the lower edge of the paper may become stained with ink.

    Resize your original document in your application software.

    ->[ Printing Area ]


    Check 8: Is the Paper Feed Roller dirty?

    Clean the Paper Feed Roller.

    ->[ Cleaning the Paper Feed Rollers ]

    REFERENCE

    Cleaning the Paper Feed Roller will wear the roller, so perform this procedure only when necessary.


    Check 9: Is inside of the printer dirty?

    When performing duplex printing, the inside of the printer may become stained with ink, causing the printout to become smudged.

    Perform the Bottom Plate Cleaning to clean the inside of the printer.

    ->[ Cleaning Inside the Printer ]

    REFERENCE

    To prevent the inside of the printer from stains, set the paper size correctly.


    Check 10: Set Ink Drying Wait Time longer

    Doing so gives the printed surface enough time to dry so that paper smudged and scratched are prevented.

    1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.

    2.Open the printer properties dialog box.

    3.Click the Maintenance tab and then Custom Settings.

    4.Drag the Ink Drying Wait Time slide bar to set the wait time, and then click Send.

    5.Confirm the message and click OK.

    1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.

    2.Open the Canon IJ Printer Utility.

    3.Select Custom Settings in the pop-up menu.

    4.Drag the Ink Drying Wait Time slide bar to set the wait time, and then click Send.

    5.Confirm the message and click OK.


    Check 11: Is the paper scratched by other loaded paper?

    Depending on the media type, the paper may be scratched by other loaded paper when feeding from the Rear Tray. In this case, load one sheet at a time.

    Canon printers include a Prevent paper abrasion option that you can select to reduce smearing on paper. Although this is a good option to have for certain printouts, such as icing sheets, it also has a dialog window that appears each time you print with the setting enabled. The dialog window states that Prevent paper abrasion might have an impact on print quality.

    The Prevent paper abrasion setting widens the space between the paper and print head. This helps reduce smudging and smearing, but can also spoil the print quality a little. So this is how you can configure the paper abrasion setting to enhance print quality and ensure the “Prevent paper abrasion is set” dialog window doesn’t pop up again.

    • First, open the Devices and Printers tab. You can do that in Windows 10 by clicking the Cortana button and entering ‘Devices and Printers’ in the search box.
    • Select Devices and Printers to open the Control Panel tab shown directly below.

    • Alternatively, Windows 7 users can select Devices and Printers on the Start menu.
    • Now you can right-click the listed Canon printer you’re printing with from the Devices and Printers tab. Select Properties from the context menu that opens.
    • Click the Maintenance tab on the Canon Properties window.
    • Press the Custom Settings button on the Maintenance tab to open a Custom Settings window.
    • The Custom Settings window includes a Prevent paper abrasion option. Click that setting’s check box to deselect the option.
    • Then press the OK button to confirm the adjusted settings.
    • Press the Apply and OK button on the Properties window.

    Now the “Prevent paper abrasion is set” dialog window won’t open. Deselecting the paper abrasion setting might also enhance print quality a little. Check out this Windows Report post for further Canon printer tips.

    ^^^^^^ From Canon ^^^^^^

    So far, I've only used glossy photo paper, so my impression is I would always leave this setting OFF. My speculation is that if I was using something thick enough to use the front tray, like Canon's "Fine Art Photo Rag", I might change this to ON (although I would think the print driver would account for this for that specific MediaType).

    Correct, or do I have a flawed understanding?
