New mg7120 won't print borderless correctly

Hello - 

My Canon Pixma 5200 series printer died so I just purchased an MG7120. I loaded 5x7 cardstock in the upper cartridge (the same stuff I've used for years) and tried to print out a borderless 5x7 card for a client. I used the exact same photoshop settings (high quality, borderless) as I always have sucessfully used. 

The new printer is printing with a 1/4 inch white border on the bottom. I tried adjusting the slider on the cartridge, I tried loading only one sheet a time, I tried 'scale to fit media' and NOT using 'scale to fit media'. No matter what I do, it prints with a white border at the bottom and only the bottom. 

I also tried re-aligning the print head using the special sheet that came with the printer, but it's still having the same problem. Help please!! I bought this because my other one died and now I still can't print this order... very upsetting. I appreciate any help.

Hi hedonia,


Please try printing one of your images with Canon Easy-PhotoPrint EX.  To do this, please follow these steps:

 1.  From the Windows Start Menu screen, please click on the Easy-PhotoPrint EX tile to open that program.

 4.  In the main menu, click on Photo Print.

 5.  Next to #1, Select Images, choose the folder that your images are located in.

 6.  On the right side, click on a photo to print.  A number 1 should appear below the image.

 7.  Click on the #2 button, Select Paper, on the left hand side.  Choose your 5" x 7" and your paper type.

 8.  Click on the #3 button, Layout/Print, on the left hand side.  Choose your desired layout.

 9.  Click the green Print button.

How does your image print?
