Paper Handling
CHAPTER
This chapter describes the media you can use with this machine, how to load them, and where
the documents come out.
Print Media Requirements
Storing Paper
The quality of paper may deteriorate if it is stored improperly even when the paper
meets the normal specifications.
Deteriorated paper may cause misfeeds, paper jams, or deterioration in print
quality.
Observe the following guidelines for storing and handling paper:
IMPORTANT
• Store paper away from moisture since paper quality deteriorates in a moist environment.
• Paper wrappers are moisture-proof. Keep paper in the wrapper until it is ready to be used.
Store all unused paper in a wrapper.
• Store paper on a flat surface to prevent it from creasing or curling.
• Do not store paper on the floor where water and moisture can accumulate.
• Avoid physical damage to stored paper.
• Do not store a paper stack vertically or leaning on another object.
• Avoid direct sunlight and moisture when storing paper.
• If the paper storage room and work area differ significantly in temperature or humidity,
keep the paper in the work area for at least one day prior to printing so that it can adapt to
the new environment. When paper is moved to a location that differs significantly in
temperature or humidity, it may curl or get creased.
Print Media Requirements
2-1
Storing Color Print Paper
When handling or storing color printouts printed by this machine, be careful of the
following points:
IMPORTANT
• Avoid storing color prints with PVC materials such as clear folders. Toner may come off
and stick to the PVC material.
• Use insoluble adhesive when gluing color prints. Toner may melt when insoluble
adhesive is used. Before using the adhesive, test it with paper that is no longer required.
• Confirm that the color prints are completely dry before placing one over another. Prints
may stick if they are placed together half-dried.
• Store color prints on a flat surface to avoid creasing or curling. Toner may peel off when
they are folded or creased.
• Avoid storing color prints at high temperatures. Otherwise toner may melt and blot.
• Put color prints in a binder when storing them for a long period of time (more than two
years). Color prints may discolor when they are stored for a long period of time.

condensation may occur both inside and on the outside of the cartridge. If you are going
to install a cartridge that was stored in a cold place in a warm room, leave the cartridge
stored in the protective bag for over two hours in the warm room so that it can adapt to
the ambient temperature.
• Be sure to use a new toner cartridge within the expiration date indicated on the package.
• Using a genuine Canon toner cartridge is recommended.
Storing Toner Cartridges

Do not store a cartridge in a place exposed to direct sunlight.
Do not store a cartridge in a hot or humid place, or a place where the temperature and
humidity can change significantly.
Storing temperature range: 32 to 95 °F (0 to 35 °C)
Storing humidity range: 35 to 85 % RH (no condensation)
Do not store a cartridge in a place that can generate corrosive gases such as ammonia,
a place in which a considerable amount of salt is contained in the air, or a place with a lot
of dust.
Store the cartridge out of the reach of small children.
■ Condensation
Even within the storable humidity range, water drops may develop both inside and on the
outside of the cartridge due to the difference in temperature. The development of water
drops is called condensation. Condensation will adversely affect the quality of the toner
cartridge.
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 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
• Scientific
Environmental Resources
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.
Maintenance
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.
