The Device Is Not Detected
When you discover devices by the [Select Printer] screen > [Auto Search], detected devices are listed as they are discovered. The device searching process normally takes about 10 seconds.
If you enter an IP address of an invalid DNS server in the Wi-Fi settings of the mobile terminal, a timeout occurs during the host name acquisition process, therefore the device searching process may take some time.
If the device is not detected after the search process has finished, it may be detected if you execute the search process again. If the target device is still not detected after you have searched again, check the following:
Support Devices
Network Environment (if the name of the device is determined by a DNS server)

After the Data Conversion Service has finished, delete unwanted pages in the [Preview] screen.

A Document Is Not Printed Correctly
If you activate this app from other apps and print documents other than PDF files, this app may not start correctly, and the files may not be able to be previewed or printed correctly.
When printing a Microsoft Office file, by performing layout correction using the Data Conversion Service, you can print the file with its original layout.
Convert the file to PDF and print it. If you are using special fonts, enable the setting for embedding fonts when converting to PDF.

Black and White Data Is Counted as Color Data
Some devices may count black and white data as color data when printing from Canon PRINT Business.
To have black and white data counted as black and white data, print using one of the following procedures.

Change the print settings
Tap Print Settings in the preview screen when executing printing, and select [Select Color] - [B&W].

Print without using the [Photo Albums] function
If you read an image into [Photo Albums] via iTunes on a computer, the colors may be adjusted and converted into color data in iTunes.
If this happens, re-read the image into a file management app other than [Photo Albums], and after opening the image, recall this app in the share menu and print.

Data Is Not Printed According to the Print Settings
If the device you are using does not support functions displayed in the [Print Settings] screen, those settings are not applied.
If the functions are not supported by the device you are using, the following operation is performed.

[Output Method] > [Store]
For devices that do not support user inbox storing, normal printing is executed.

[Output Method] > [Secure Print]
For devices that do not support the Secure Print function, normal printing is executed.

[Dept. ID Mgt.] > On
For devices that do not support the Department ID Management function, normal printing is executed.

NOTE
For using the Department ID Management function, enabling the Department ID Management function at the device is necessary. For details, refer to the manuals provided with the device.

[Output Size]
If you specify a paper size that is not supported by the device, the print job is printed on another paper size or a paper confirmation message is displayed on the control panel of the device.

[Select Color] > [Color]
For devices that do not support color printing, the settings are not applied and the print job is printed in black and white.

[2-sided] > ON
For devices that do not support 2-sided printing, the settings are not applied and the print data is printed on one side of the paper.

[Staple] > ON
For devices that do not support stapling, the settings are not applied and the print data is printed without being stapled.
Even if you are using a device with a finisher that supports stapling attached, for a page size other than LTR or A4, the print job may be output without stapling.

NOTE
The settings that are displayed differ for each device.
When the device supports acquisition of configuration information, if you use the [Select Printer] > [Printer Details] > [Update Printer Information] function, you can display the items corresponding to the functions of the device in the [Print Settings] screen. If the configuration information of the device cannot be acquired, all items will be displayed in the [Print Settings] screen.

Printing Documents Takes Time
When using the Data Conversion Service for printing a Microsoft Office file, uploading and downloading data may take several minutes depending on the content of the data to be printed and the communication environment you are using. The method for shortening the processing time is as follows.

When using the Data Conversion Service
If you can tap [Print] in the [Preview] screen before all rendering by the Data Conversion Service is complete, printing is started. Because the rendering and printing processes are being executed in parallel, the processing time is shortened. However, if you specify the print range in an Excel file (xls and xlsx), you cannot do so until all the data has finished being converted.

When not using the Data Conversion Service
Files that have simple layouts and text may only suffer minimal layout errors if you do not use the Data Conversion Service. If there appear to be no problems when you check the preview, tapping [Print] without tapping [Image Correction] will print the file with the mobile terminal OS performing the rendering process. In this case, although the processing time is shortened compared to using the Data Conversion Service, there is a possibility of the file being printed with an incorrect layout.

A Time Out Error Is Displayed After Printing Starts
Depending on the content of the print data, the time from the start of printing in this app and print output may take some minutes.
Because mobile terminal OSes support multi-tasking, print processing continues for the enabled period even if this app is not being displayed.
If the enabled period is exceeded, the job will be canceled.

PDF Direct Printing Restrictions of Use
For devices equipped with the PDF direct printing or PS printing function, send the PDF file directly to the device to be printed.
Take care of the following when doing so.
The print preview displayed in the [Preview] screen and the actual print result may differ.
If you set [Preview] screen > [Print Settings] screen > [Staple], the document may be stapled at different positions to those indicated in the thumbnail image in the [Preview] screen.
If an error occurs when printing a PDF file in which a password has been set, an error message is not displayed on the mobile terminal. An error message is displayed on the control panel of the device.
You cannot delete a page you do not want to print in the enlarged preview screen. To specify the pages to print, do so in the [Print Settings] screen > [Print Range].

Cannot Scan
If you cannot scan, check the following.
Is the file name set at the device single-byte letters/numbers?
Is the resolution of the scanned data too high?
Are the management settings of the device correct?
Are the network settings of the device correct?

Is the file name set at the device single-byte letters/numbers?
If you are scanning from an imageRUNNER ADVANCE using the function, and set a file name at the device that includes diacritical marks or certain symbols such as double-byte characters, umlauts, and/or accents, the data cannot be correctly received in this app and a transmission failure error message will be displayed at the device.
When specifying a file name at the device, enter a file name using single-byte roman characters or single-byte symbols (ASCII characters).

Is the resolution of the scanned data too high?
If you scan data with a high resolution setting, the operations of this app may become unstable. In order to stabilize operations, reduce the resolution when scanning.

Are the management settings of the device correct?
If [Management Settings] > [License/Other] > [MEAP Settings] > [Use SSL]/[Use TLS] is set to [On] on an imageRUNNER ADVANCE device and the version of certificate used is "X.509v1", you may not be able to configure scan settings on a mobile terminal even if the Canon Mobile Scanning MEAP Application is installed in the device.
Set [Use SSL]/[Use TLS] to [Off] or change the device authentication version to "X.509v3" or later. For details, check with the device administrator.

Are the network settings of the device correct?
If you set [On] for [Preferences] > [Network] > [TCP/IP Settings] > [Proxy Settings] at the imageRUNNER ADVANCE device, scanning may not operate correctly.

Scan Data is Separated and Stored
In the following cases, scanned data is split into multiple files.
