https://www.photoreview.com.au/reviews/printers/canon-pixma-pro-1/#::text=With%20a%20capacity,the%20front%20panel. Looking down on the front of the PIXMA Pro-1 to show the CD/DVD printing facility.

Above them on the top panel is a button for opening the compartment holding the ink tanks (as they are now termed). A lift-up cover towards the front of the top panel provides access to the print head. Further back is another cover, which folds out in four sections to provide the rear paper tray.

The back panel has a fold-out manual input slot for A3+ paper. Sliding guides in this slot allow you to position the paper snugly. The power cord plugs into a figure-eight socket on the left side of the rear panel while the USB and Ethernet ports are located on the right side.

Setting Up

Unpacking the Pro-1 is a challenge because the printer is heavy (more than 27 kg without the head and inks) and it's wrapped in a kind of plastic bag with cut-out handles. Two people are needed to extract the printer and manoeuvre it from the box to a desk.

Unfortunately, the printer we received to review had been used previously, which meant the inks and print head were already installed. Going by the instructions provided, fitting these components is pretty straightforward. Canon recommends allowing at least 25 cm behind the printer and 35 cm in front of it free so the paper feed trays can be pulled out.

When the printer is in position you can connect the power cord (supplied) to a figure-eight socked in the rear left hand corner of the machine. The printer is powered-up by pressing the Power button on the front right side panel. It takes a few seconds for the Power button to react and begin flashing, which continues for a couple of minutes, after which it glows steadily.

Once the Power button light stops flashing, you can begin to install the ink tanks. They go into on bays covered by drop-down doors on either side of the paper delivery tray. The doors are released by pressing a button on the front of the right side top panel. (We found it took roughly a minute for the doors to drop after the button was pressed.)
