Connecting Computer Properly
Most problems related to connecting printer with computer, can be correlated to USB problems and compatibility issues. If your computer does not support Hi-Speed USB (Canon PIXMA iP4700 requires USB 1.1 support or more) try upgrading your USB drivers and checking Canon PIXMA iP4700 manual to connect both printer and computer. You should also keep in mind to check out the internal communication between the printer and the computer. If it does not process fully then the error codes are displayed.
If your print results are not satisfactory try checking 1) that your page size and media type settings match size and type of the paper that you have loaded; 2) if you are printing a photograph, incorrect paper type settings may reduce the quality or print color in the photo print; 3) make sure that appropriate print quality is selected; 4) check that your paper is not smudged or photo-print paper is not scratched. Sometimes you might have unsatisfactory results like blurred prints and white streaks. This might result due to lower ink level. In such cases, check the status of ink before you print; you can also try replacing the cartridge if required.
