cartridge, be careful not to get any toner on your hands or
clothing, as this will dirty your hands or clothing. If toner
gets on your hands or clothing, wash them immediately
with cold water. Washing with warm water sets the toner,
making it impossible to remove the toner stains.
• When removing jammed paper, be careful not to allow the
toner on the paper to scatter. The toner may get into your
eyes or mouth. If toner gets into your eyes or mouth, wash
them immediately with cold water and consult a physician.
• When loading paper or removing jammed documents or
paper, be careful not to cut your hands with the edges of
the paper.
• When removing a toner cartridge, remove the toner
cartridge carefully so as to prevent the toner from
scattering and getting into your eyes or mouth. If toner gets
into your eyes or mouth, wash them immediately with cold
water and consult a physician.
• Do not attempt to disassemble the toner cartridge. The
toner may scatter and get into your eyes or mouth. If toner
gets into your eyes or mouth, wash them immediately with
cold water and consult a physician.
• If toner leaks from the toner cartridge, be careful not to
inhale the toner or allow it to come into direct contact with
your skin. If the toner comes into contact with your skin,
wash with soap. If the skin becomes irritated or you inhale
the toner, consult a physician immediately.
viii

Installation Requirements and Handling
In order to use this machine in a safe and trouble-free manner, install the machine in a place that fulfills the following conditions.
Also, read the remarks carefully.
Temperature and Humidity Conditions
Installation Requirements
• Temperature range: 50 to 86°F (10 to 30°C)
• Humidity range: 20 to 80 % RH (no condensation)
•
•
•
•
IMPORTANT
A location with sufficient space
A location with good ventilation
A location with a flat, even surface
A location able to fully support the weight of the machine
Protecting the machine from condensation
• To prevent condensation from forming inside the machine
in the following cases, let the machine adjust to the
ambient temperature and humidity for at least two hours
before use.
- When the room where the machine is installed is heated
rapidly
- When the machine is moved from a cool or dry location
to a hot or humid location
• If water droplets (condensation) form inside the machine,
this can result in paper jams or poor print quality.
When using an ultrasonic humidifier
When you are using an ultrasonic humidifier, it is therefore
recommended that you use purified water or other water that
is free of impurities.
If you use tap water or well water, impurities in the water will
be dispersed through the air. This can be trapped inside the
machine, causing degradation in print quality.
Power Supply Requirements
IMPORTANT
Do not install the machine in the following locations, as
this may result in damage to the machine.
• A location subject to dramatic changes in temperature or
humidity
• A location subject to condensation
• A poorly ventilated location
(If you use the machine for a long time or to perform a large
amount of printing in a poorly ventilated room, the ozone
or other odors generated by the machine may create an
uncomfortable working environment. In addition, chemical
particles are dispersed during printing; therefore, it is
important to provide adequate ventilation.)
• A location near equipment that generates magnetic or
electromagnetic waves
• A laboratory or location where chemical reactions occur
• A location exposed to salt air, corrosive gases, or toxic gases
• A location, such as on a carpet or mat, that may warp from
the weight of the machine or where the machine is liable
to sink.
120 to 127 V, 60 Hz
IMPORTANT
Precautions when connecting the power cord
• Do not connect this machine to an uninterruptible power
source.
• Use an AC power outlet exclusively for the machine. Do not
use the other sockets of the AC power outlet.
• Do not plug the power plug into the auxiliary outlet on a
computer.
Do not use the same AC power outlet for both the machine
and any of the following equipment.

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.

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.

Printer Driver Setting
Auto 2-sided print is available.
If printed paper curls when [Plain Paper] is selected, set paper type to [Plain Paper L]. However, the toner fixation may be not as good when
[Plain Paper L] is set.
Use only the transparencies designed for laser printers.
You can set Envelope Monarch only in the multi-purpose tray.
To prevent paper jams, do not use the following types of paper.
• Wrinkled or creased paper
CAUTION
• Curled or rolled paper
If you print on damp paper
• Torn paper
The following problems may occur.
• Steam is emitted from the printer output
area.
• Water droplets form on the back side of
the operation panel and in the output
area.
Because moisture in the paper is evaporating
due to the heat generated when toner fixes,
this is not a malfunction. (This is likely to
occur when the room temperature is low.)
If you smell a burnt odor, however,
immediately turn OFF the machine, unplug
the power plug from the AC power outlet,
and then contact your local authorized
Canon dealer or the Canon help line.
Continued use can result in a fire or electrical
shock.
• Damp paper
• Very thin paper
• Paper printed with a thermal transfer printer (Do not copy on the reverse side.)
The following types of paper do not print well:
• Highly textured paper
• Very smooth paper
• Glossy paper
Make sure the paper is free from dust, lint, and oil stains.
Make sure to test paper before purchasing large quantities.
Store all paper wrapped and on a flat surface until ready
for use. Keep opened packs in their original packaging in a cool,
dry location.
Store paper at 64.4 to 75.2°F (18 to 24°C), 40 % to 60 % RH.

When using paper that has been poorly cut
If you use paper that has been poorly cut, multiple sheets of paper
may be fed at once. In this case, fan the paper thoroughly, and then
align the edges of the stack properly on a hard, flat surface.
Do not exceed the load limit mark when loading paper.
Ensure that the paper stack does not exceed the line of the load
limit mark. If the paper stack exceeds the load limit mark lines, this
may result in misfeeds.
When printing on envelopes
Load envelopes with the front side (non-glued side) facing up. You
cannot print on the reverse side of envelopes.
Also, be sure to close the flap before loading envelopes.

printer.
• As well as providing faster and more stable printing than conventional models, the printer driver for this machine uses less memory to operate.
• In addition to the conversion of print data, the printer driver for this machine is equipped with the functions capable of spooling print data and
configuring the print condition, and various types of print finishing can be set such as scaling or gutter adjustment.

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 Cartridge box.
The Clean Earth Campaign
● THE Canon CARTRIDGE RECYCLING PROGRAM
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.
Maintenance
Since its inception, The Canon Cartridge Recycling Program has collected huge amount 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.
