Congratulations on your new Canon iP8720 printer! This guide will walk you through the initial setup process to ensure that your printer is ready to deliver high-quality prints. Please follow the steps below:
Carefully unpack your Canon iP8720 printer and remove all the protective materials.
- Power Connection
Locate the power cord provided with the printer. Connect one end of the power cord to the printer’s power input port, and the other end to a nearby power outlet.
- Paper Loading
Open the paper tray located at the front of the printer. Adjust the paper guides to match the size of the paper you will be using. Load a stack of paper into the tray, making sure it is aligned properly and the guides are snug against the paper.
- Ink Installation
The Canon iP8720 printer uses individual ink cartridges. Open the top cover of the printer to access the ink cartridge holder. Install the ink cartridges by pushing them firmly into their respective slots until they click into place. Make sure you install all the required ink cartridges for your printer model.

Press the power button on the printer to turn it on. The printer will go through an initial setup process. Follow any instructions displayed on the printer’s control panel, if applicable.
- Connection and Configuration
Connect the printer to your computer using a USB cable or configure it for wireless printing, depending on your preference. If using a USB cable, simply connect it to the printer and your computer. If setting up wireless printing, follow the instructions provided in the printer’s user manual.

Insert the setup CD provided with the printer into your computer’s CD drive. If your computer doesn’t have a CD drive, you can download the latest software and drivers from the Canon support website. Follow the on-screen prompts to install the necessary software and drivers.
