You can print on speciality media, such as envelopes, photo paper or transparencies, with the Canon Pixma iP4200 photo printer. The iP4200 prints 9,600-by-2,400 dots per inch, borderless 4-by-6 inch photos and double-sided documents. The Pixma supports a yellow, magenta and cyan ink cartridge and two black ink cartridges. The printer comes with Easy-PhotoPrint, PhotoRecord and Easy-WebPrint software bundles. After the printer is set up and connected, you might have questions about how it works.

  1. 1

    Press the "Power" button on the front-right side of the iP4200 to turn it on. The "Power" light blinks as the printer prepares. The light turns solid when the printer is ready to accept print jobs. Press the "Power" button again to turn the printer off.

  2. 2

    Insert paper into the "Auto Sheet" feeder at the top of the iP4200 if you plan to print a lot on various sheet sizes. Pull the top of the feeder up to support the paper after it's inserted. Confirm that the paper is inserted headfirst with the printable side facing up. Push the "Paper Feed" feed button on the front of the printer until the "Auto Sheet" feeder light illuminates. Clasp the paper guide on the left side of the feeder and butt it against the left edge of the paper. The paper guide allows for smaller sizes of media to be loaded into the feeder.

  3. 3

    Pull the "Paper Tray" out from the bottom-front of the printer and fill it with paper. Pull out the tray extension to support the inserted paper. Insert the paper feet-first with the printable side facing up. Butt the two paper guides up against the edges of the paper. Reinsert the paper tray into its slot. Press the "Paper Feed" button until the "Cassette" light illuminates. Various paper sizes can be loaded into both the "Auto Sheet" feeder or the "Paper Tray" at once. The "Paper Tray" requires less frequent reloading from the "Auto Sheet" feeder. When paper runs out of one of the paper feeders, the iP4200 automatically switches to the other one.

  4. 4

    Open a printable file on the connected computer, such as a text document. Click "File" and "Print" from the drop-down options. The "Print" dialogue box appears. Confirm that the iP4200 is selected and click "Preferences." The "Printing Preferences" box appears. Select the media type you wish to print to and select "Paper Feed Switch." Click "OK." Click "Print" from the "Print" dialogue box.
