Preface
Thank you for choosing a Canon product. Before using the machine, please read
the following instructions for your safety.
What Can I Do with This Machine?
Important Safety Instructions
WARNING
Except as specifically described in this guide, do not attempt to service the machine yourself. Never
attempt to disassemble the machine: opening and removing its interior covers will expose you to
dangerous voltages and other risks. For all service, contact Canon Customer Care Center, or a Canon
Authorized Service Facility.
Handling and Maintenance
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the machine.
Do not subject the machine to strong physical shocks or vibrations.
Always unplug the machine before moving or cleaning it.
To avoid paper jams, never unplug the power cord, open the front cover, or add or
remove paper in the machine while printing.
When transporting the machine, be sure to remove the toner cartridge from the
machine.
Place the toner cartridge in its original protective bag or wrap it in a thick cloth to
prevent exposure to light.
Always grip the handle on the sides of the machine when you lift the machine. Never
lift the machine by any of its trays or attachments.
Do not insert any objects into the slots or openings on the machine since they may
touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts. This could result in fire or electric
shock.
Do not allow small objects (such as pins, paper clips, or staples) to fall into the
machine.
To avoid spillage in or around the machine, do not eat or drink near it.
Keep the machine clean. Dust accumulation can prevent the machine from operating
properly.
xi
What Can I Do with This Machine?
– Unplug the machine from the wall outlet and contact Canon Customer Care Center
in any of the following cases:
– When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
– If liquid or small object has fallen into the machine.
– If the machine has been exposed to rain or water.
– If the machine does not operate normally when you have followed the instructions
in this guide. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the instructions in this
guide. Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and may
require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the product to normal
operation.
– If the machine has been dropped.
– If the machine exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for
servicing.
Location
– Place the machine on a flat, stable, vibration-free surface that is strong enough to
support its weight.
– Place the machine in a cool, dry, clean, well ventilated place.
– Make sure the area is free from dust.
– Make sure the location is not exposed to high temperature or humidity.
– Keep the machine away from direct sunlight as this can damage it. If you have to
place the machine near a window, install heavy curtains or blinds.
– Do not use the machine near water. Make sure that no wet or humid objects come
into contact with the machine.
– Do not use or store the machine outdoors.
– Do not place the machine near devices that contain magnets or generate magnetic
fields, such as speakers.
xii
Power Supply
– During electrical storms, unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
(Please note that any documents stored in the machine’s memory will be deleted
when you unplug the power cord.)
– Whenever you unplug the power cord, wait at least five seconds before you plug it in
again.
– Do not plug the power cord into an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
WARNING
This product emits low level magnetic flux. If you use a cardiac pacemaker and feel abnormalities, please
move away from this product and consult your doctor.
xiii
What Can I Do with This Machine?
– If possible, place the machine near an existing telephone line outlet for easy
connection of the telephone line cord, and to avoid the expense of installing a new
outlet.
– Place the machine near a standard 120 V AC (60 Hz) power outlet.
– To ensure reliable operation of the machine and to protect it from overheating (which
can cause it to operate abnormally and create a fire risk), do not block the exhaust
vent. Never block or cover any openings on the machine by placing it on a bed, sofa,
rug, or other similar surface. Do not place the machine in a cupboard or built-in
installation, or near a radiator or other heat source unless proper ventilation is
provided. Leave enough space around all sides of the machine.
– Do not stack boxes or furniture around the power outlet. Keep the area free so you
can reach the outlet quickly. If you notice anything unusual (smoke, strange odors,
noises) around the machine, unplug the power cord immediately. Contact Canon
Customer Care Center.
– Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord, and do not place the machine where
the cord will be walked on. Make sure the cord is not knotted or kinked.

Pre-Installation Requirements for Canon Facsimile
Equipment
A. Location
Supply a suitable table, cabinet, or desk. See p. 13-1 for the machine’s weight and
dimensions.
B. Order Information
1. Only a single line, touch-tone or rotary telephone set is to be used.
2. Order an RJ11-C modular jack (USOC code), which should be installed by the
telephone company. If the RJ11-C jack is not present, installation cannot occur.
3. Order a regular voice grade line or the equivalent from your telephone company’s
business representative.
Use one line per machine.
DDD (DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE
-orIDDD (INTERNATIONAL DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE IF YOU COMMUNICATE
OVERSEAS
NOTE
Canon recommends an individual line following industry standards, e.g. the 2500 (Touch Tone) or
500 (Rotary/Pulse Dial) telephones. A dedicated extension off a PBX machine without “Call Waiting”
can be used with the machine. Key telephone systems are not recommended because they send
non-standard signals to individual telephones for ringing and special codes, which may cause a fax
error. This machine is not supported on Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP).
C. Power Requirements
This equipment should be connected to a standard 120-volt AC, three-wire grounded
outlet only. Do not connect this machine to an outlet or power line shared with other
appliances that cause “electrical noise.” Air conditioners, electric typewriters, copiers, and
machines of this sort generate electrical noise which often interferes with communications
equipment and the sending and receiving of documents.
xix
What Can I Do with This Machine?
Connection of the Equipment
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted
by the ACTA. On the rear panel of this equipment is a label that contains, among other
information, a product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this
number must be provided to the telephone company.
An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular jack are provided with this equipment.
This equipment is designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises
wiring using a compatible modular jack which is Part 68 compliant. See the Starter
Guide for details.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is used to determine the number of devices
that may be connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may
result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most but not all
areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of
devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the
local telephone company. The REN for this product is part of the product identifier that
has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN
without a decimal point (e.g., 10 is a REN of 1.0).
This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company.
Connection to party lines is subjected to state tariffs.
In Case of Equipment Malfunction
Should any malfunction occur which cannot be corrected by the procedures described
in this guide, disconnect the equipment from the telephone line and unplug the power
cord. The telephone line should not be reconnected or the power cord plugged in until
the problem is completely resolved. Users should contact Canon Authorized Service
Facilities for servicing of equipment. Information regarding Authorized Service Facility
locations can be obtained by calling Canon Customer Care Center (1-800-828-4040).

• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
xxi
What Can I Do with This Machine?
Should the equipment cause harm to the telephone network, the telephone company
may temporarily disconnect service. The telephone company also retains the right to
make changes in facilities and services which may affect the operation of this
equipment. When such changes are necessary, the telephone company is required to
give adequate prior notice to the user.
What Can I Do with This Machine?
Use of shielded cable is required to comply with class B limits in Subpart B of Part 15
of FCC Rules.
Do not make any changes or modifications to the equipment unless otherwise
specified in this manual. If such changes or modifications should be made, you could
be required to stop operation of the equipment.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to
use a computer or other electronic device to send any message via a telephone fax
machine unless such message clearly contains in a margin at the top or bottom of
each transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission, the date and time it is
sent and an identification of the business or other entity, or other individual sending the
message and the telephone number of the sending machine or such business, other
entity, or individual.
In order to program this information into the machine, follow the instructions in the

Users in Canada
A. Location
Supply a suitable table, cabinet, or desk. See p. 13-1 for the machine’s weight and
dimensions.
B. Order Information
1. Provide only a single-line to touch-tone or rotary telephone set terminated with a
standard 4-pin modular phone plug. (Touch-tone is recommended if available in your
area.)
2. Order an CA11A modular jack (USOC code), which should be installed by the
telephone company. If the CA11A jack is not present, installation cannot occur.
3. Order a normal business line from your telephone company’s business representative.
The line should be a regular voice grade line or equivalent. Use one line per machine.
DDD (DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE
-orIDDD (INTERNATIONAL DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE IF YOU COMMUNICATE
OVERSEAS
NOTE
Canon recommends an individual line following industry standards, e.g., the 2500 (touch tone) or
500 (rotary/pulse dial) telephones. A dedicated extension off a PBX machine without “Camp On”
signals is also permissible with the machine. Key telephone systems are not recommended because
they send non-standard signals to individual telephones for ringing and special codes, which may
cause a fax error.
C. Power Requirements
The power outlet should be a three-prong grounded receptacle (Single or Duplex). It
should be independent from copiers, heaters, air conditioners or any electric equipment
that is thermostatically controlled. The rated value is 120 volts and 15 amperes. The
CA11A modular jack should be relatively close to the power outlet to facilitate installation.

What Can I Do with This Machine?
Laser Safety
This machine complies with 21 CFR Chapter 1 Subchapter J as a Class 1 laser
product under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Radiation
Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of
1968. This means that the machine does not produce hazardous radiation.
Since radiation emitted inside the machine is completely confined within protective
housings and external covers, the laser beam cannot escape from the machine during
any phase of user operation.
CDRH Regulations
The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration implemented regulations for laser products on August 2, 1976. These
regulations apply to laser products manufactured from August 1, 1976. Compliance is
mandatory for products marketed in the United States.
CAUTION
Use of controls, adjustments, or performance of procedures other than those specified in this manual may
result in hazardous radiation exposure.
The label is attached to the laser scanner machine inside the machine and is not in a
user access area.

Toner Cartridge
The lifetime of the Canon Genuine toner cartridge used in this machine is
approximately 2,500 pages. The page counts are on the basis of “ISO/IEC 19752”*
when printing A4 size paper with the default print density setting. The level of toner
consumption varies depending on the type of documents printed. If your average
document contains a lot of graphics, tables, or charts, the life of the toner cartridge
will be shorter as they consume more toner. To purchase the Canon genuine
replacement toner cartridge, contact your local Canon dealer or Canon Customer
Care Center (1-800-828-4040).
* “ISO/IEC 19752” is the global standard related to “Method for the determination of toner cartridge yield for
monochromatic electrophotographic printers and multi-function devices that may contain printer
components” issued by ISO (International Organization for Standardization).

Before Using the Machine
● Keep the toner cartridge away from computer screens, disk drives, and floppy disks.
The magnet inside the toner cartridge may harm these items.
● Avoid locations subject to high temperature, high humidity, or rapid changes in
temperature.
● Do not expose the toner cartridge to direct sunlight or bright light for more than five
minutes.
● Store the toner cartridge in its protective bag. Do not open the bag until you are
ready to install the toner cartridge in the machine.
● Save the toner cartridge’s protective bag in case you need to repack and transport
the toner cartridge at a later date.
● Do not store the toner cartridge in a salty atmosphere or where there are corrosive
gases such as from aerosol sprays.
● Do not remove the toner cartridge from the machine unnecessarily.
● Do not open the drum protective shutter on the toner cartridge. Print quality may
deteriorate if the drum surface is exposed to light or is damaged.
● Always hold the toner cartridge by its handle to avoid touching the drum protective
shutter.
● Do not stand the toner cartridge on end, and do not turn it upside down. If toner
becomes caked in the toner cartridge, it may become impossible to free it even by
shaking the toner cartridge.

Paper Guidelines
● To prevent paper jams, do not use any of the following:
– Wrinkled or creased paper
– Curled or rolled paper
– Coated paper
– Torn paper
– Damp paper
– Very thin paper
– Paper which has been printed on using a thermal transfer printer (Do not copy on
the reverse side.)
● The following types of paper do not print well:

Recycling Used Cartridges
Canon has instituted a worldwide recycling program for cartridges
called “The Clean Earth Campaign.” This program preserves
precious natural resources by utilizing a variety of materials found in
the used cartridges that are of no further use, to remanufacture new
cartridges which, at the same time, keeps the environment cleaner
by reducing landfill waste. Complete details concerning this program
are enclosed in each PC Cartridge box.
The Clean Earth Campaign
● THE Canon CARTRIDGE RECYCLING PROGRAM
Maintenance
The Canon Cartridge Recycling Program fulfills the first initiative of Canon’s Clean
Earth Campaign, which supports four critical environmental areas:
● Recycling in the Workplace
● Conserving Environmental Resources
● Scientific Research and Education
● Encouraging Outdoors Appreciation
The remaining “Clean Earth” initiatives are supported in the U.S. through sponsorships
of the National Park Foundation, the National Wildlife Federation, and The Nature
Conservancy and in Canada through donations to the World Wildlife Fund Canada and
The Nature Conservancy of Canada.
10-9
Since its inception, The Canon Cartridge Recycling Program has collected millions of
cartridges that otherwise would have been discarded into landfills or similar facilities.
Instead, this rapidly growing program returns used cartridges to the manufacturing
process, thus conserving an array of resources.
Becoming a part of this worthwhile program is easy. When your cartridge is of no
further use, simply follow the instructions detailed for U.S. or Canadian residents.
We appreciate your support of The Canon Cartridge Recycling Program.
Working together we can make a significant contribution to a cleaner planet.
● Cartridges collected through this program are not refilled.

Clearing Paper Jams
When a jam occurs inside the
machine, the paper jam message
appears on the LCD display. When
<PAPER JAM> appears on the LCD
display, remove jammed paper from
inside the machine first, then from the
paper cassette if necessary. Check the
following if you experience repeated
paper jams:
– Even the edge of the paper stack by
a flat surface before loading it in the
machine.
– Check that the paper you are using
meets the requirements for use.
(See “Print Media,” on p. 3-1.)
– Make sure you have removed any
scraps of paper from inside the
machine.
NOTE
Do not force jammed paper out of the machine.
Contact Canon Customer Care Center for
assistance if needed.

Remove the toner cartridge.
NOTE
CAUTION
– Remove watches and any bracelets or
rings when touching the inside of the
machine. These items might be
damaged if they come into contact with
the parts inside the machine.
– To avoid possible damage to the
machine, do not touch the pins (A) near
the left end of the transfer roller (B).
– Do not open the drum protective shutter
on the toner cartridge. Print quality may
deteriorate if the drum surface is
exposed to light or is damaged.
Do not expose the toner cartridge to light
for more than 5 minutes. If necessary, put
the toner cartridge in its original protective
bag or wrap it with a thick cloth to prevent
exposure to light.

– When removing the jammed paper, do
not touch the transfer roller as its surface
is very delicate and susceptible to finger
oil and scratches, which may lead to print
deterioration.
11-2

Hold both sides of the jammed
paper and carefully move it
inward, then gently pull it out.
If the leading edge of the paper is visible
but has not entered the imaging area, pull
the paper forwards and roll it inwards.
CAUTION
CAUTION
– When removing jammed documents or
paper, take care not to cut your hands on
the edges of the document or paper.
– When removing jammed paper or when
inspecting the inside of the machine, do
not allow necklaces, bracelets, or other
metal objects to touch the inside of the
machine, as this may result in burns or
electrical shock.
– If you tear the paper, remove any torn
pieces to avoid further jams.
– If loose toner comes into contact with
your skin or clothing, wash with cold
water. Warm water will set the toner.
Troubleshooting
5
– Do not pull the jammed paper forward
from the paper cassette. It may cause a
machine malfunction.
Gently pull the jammed paper
out of the machine.
– Do not pull the jammed paper upward.
The toner on the paper will stain the
machine and cause a permanent
reduction in print quality.

Hold both sides of the jammed
paper and slowly pull it out in
the direction of the arrow.
NOTE
– Be sure to push the paper release levers
back to their original position. If the
