My PIXMA MG2522 only prints the top left quarter of the page


My PIXMA MG2522 printer has started to print the whole document in the upper left quarter of the page, despite the paper size print setting being set to Letter and the printer default paper size being set to US Letter.

Hi roseytrue,

Please follow these steps:

2.  Click on Printers & Scanners.

3.  Click on the Canon MG2500 on the left side and then [-] at the bottom to remove it.

4.  Repeat until all MG2500's are removed.

5.  Click on the [+].  The Add Printer window will appear.

6.  If your MG2500 does not show up, please disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it.  Also, please make sure that your PIXMA MG2522 is powered on.

Once reinstalled, please attempt to print.

Tried this and still having the same issue. Any other suggestions?


Do you have the MG2522/MG2525 CUPS Printer Driver Ver. installed?

We look forward to your reply. 

Driver version is currently installed/being used.


When you add the printer in printers and scanners, what is listed for name, kind and type. Does it list the Canon driver being used? 

We look forward to your reply.
