Top View
• Even if the sealing tape stops at midpoint, pull it out of the toner
cartridge completely.
• If any tape remains in the toner cartridge, this may result in poor print
quality. If you are using the Fax, please note that you can only print the
received data once, because the received data is deleted once it is printed.
• Dispose of the packing materials according to local regulations.
Remove the drum protective
cover.

WARNING
Maintenance and Management
Do not dispose of a used toner cartridge in open flames.
This may cause the toner remaining inside the cartridge to ignite, resulting in burns
or a fire.
When cleaning up spilled or scattered toner:
If you accidentally spill or scatter toner, carefully gather the toner particles together
or wipe them up with a soft, damp cloth in a way that prevents inhalation.
Never use a vacuum cleaner that does not have safeguards against dust explosions
to clean up spilled toner. Doing so may cause a malfunction in the vacuum cleaner,
or result in a dust explosion due to static discharge.
CAUTION
If you get toner 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.
Do not allow the toner to scatter.
Do not pull out the sealing tape forcefully or stop before it is removed, as this
may cause toner to spill out. If toner gets into your eyes or mouth, flush them
immediately with cold water and immediately consult a physician.
• Follow all local and federal regulations when disposing of the sealing tape
removed from the new toner cartridge.
• Canon will collect and recycle your used toner cartridges (→p.112).

installed by the telephone company. If the RJ11-C wall jack is
not present, telephone/facsimile operation is not possible.
3. Order a normal business line from your telephone company’s
business representative. The line should be a regular voice
grade line or an equivalent one. Use one line per unit.
DDD (Direct Distance Dial) line
-orIDDD (International Direct Distance Dial) line if you communicate
overseas
Canon recommends an individual line following
industry standards, i.e., 2,500 (touch-tone) or 500
(rotary/pulse dial) telephones. A dedicated extension
off a PBX (Private Branch eXchange) unit without “Call
Waiting” can be used with your facsimile unit. Key
telephone systems are not recommended because
they send nonstandard signals to individual
telephones for ringing and special codes, which may
cause a facsimile error.

product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested,
this number must be provided to the telephone company.
The REN (Ringer Equivalence Number) 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 the 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).
An FCC compliant telephone line cable and modular plug is
provided with this equipment. This equipment is designed to be
connected to the telephone network or premise wiring using a
compatible modular jack that is Part 68 compliant.

Pre-Installation Requirements for Canon Facsimile Equipment
A. Location
Supply a suitable table, cabinet, or desk for the machine. See the
e-Manual for specific dimensions and weight.
B. Order Information
1. A single telephone line (touch-tone or rotary) should be used.
2. Order a CA11A modular jack, 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 an equivalent one. Use one line per unit.
DDD (Direct Distance Dial) line
-orIDDD (International Direct Distance Dial) line if you communicate
overseas
Canon recommends an individual line following
industry standards, i.e., 2,500 (touch-tone) or 500
(rotary/pulse dial) telephones. A dedicated extension
off a PBX (Private Branch eXchange) unit without “Call
Waiting” can be used with your facsimile unit. Key
telephone systems are not recommended because
they send nonstandard signals to individual
telephones for ringing and special codes, which may
cause a facsimile 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 115 volts and 15 amperes. The CA11A
modular jack should be relatively close to the power outlet to
facilitate installation.
Notice
• This product meets the applicable Industry Canada technical
specifications.
• The Ringer Equivalence Number is an indication of the
maximum number of devices allowed to be connected to a
telephone interface. The termination of an interface may consist
of any combination of devices subject only to the requirement
that the sum of the RENs of all the devices does not exceed five.
• The REN of this product is 1.0.
• Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that
it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local
telecommunications company. The equipment must also be
installed using an acceptable method of connection. In some
cases, the company’s inside wiring associated with a single line
individual service may be extended by means of a certified
connector assembly (telephone extension cord). The customer
should be aware that compliance with the above conditions
may not prevent deterioration of service in some situations.
• Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an
authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by
the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to
this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the
telecommunications company cause to request the user to
disconnect the equipment.
• Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical
ground connections of the power utility, telephone lines, and
internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are connected
together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural
areas.
CAUTION
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves,
but should contact the appropriate electric inspection authority,
or electrician, as appropriate.
This equipment complies with the Canadian ICES-003
Class B limits.
Utilisation au Canada
Conditions à Remplir Préalablement à L’installation d’un
Télécopieur Canon
A. Emplacement
Prévoir une table, un meuble, ou un bureau suffisamment solide et
de taille appropriée (voir le chapitre 11, Annexe (Appendix), pour
les indications de poids et dimensions).
B. Installation téléphonique
1. Une seule ligne téléphonique (tonalités ou impulsions) doit être
utilisée.
2. Il faut commander un jack modulaire CA11A qui sera installé par
la compagnie téléphonique. Sans ce jack, la mise en place serait
impossible.
3. Si vous vous abonnez à une nouvelle ligne, demandez une
ligne d’affaires normale de qualité téléphonique courante ou
équivalente. Prenez un abonnement d’une ligne par appareil.
Ligne automatique interurbaine
ou
Ligne automatique internationale (si vous communiquez avec les
pays étrangers)
Canon vous conseille d’utiliser une ligne individuelle
conforme aux normes industrielles, à savoir:
ligne téléphonique 2,500 (pour appareil à clavier)
ou 500 (pour appareil à cadran/impulsions). Il est
également possible de raccorder ce télécopieur à
un système téléphonique à poussoirs car la plupart
de ces systèmes émettent des signaux d’appel non
normalisés ou des codes spéciaux qui risquent de
perturber le fonctionnement du télécopieur.
C. Condition d’alimentation
Raccordez le télécopieur à une prise de courant plus terre à trois
branches, du type simple ou double, et qui ne sert pas à alimenter
un copieur, un appareil de chauffage, un climatiseur ou tout autre
appareil électrique à thermostat.
L’alimentation doit être de 115 volts et 15 ampères. Pour faciliter
l’installation, le jack CA11A doit être assez proche de la prise de
courant.
Remarques
• Le présent matériel est conforme aux spécifications techniques
applicables d’Industrie Canada.
• Avant d’installer cet appareil, l’utilisateur doit s’assurer qu’il
est permis de le connecter à l’équipement de la compagnie
de télécommunication locale et doit installer cet appareil en
utilisant une méthode de connexion autorisée. Il se peut qu’il
faille étendre la circuiterie intérieure de la ligne individuelle
d’abonné, qui a été installée par la compagnie, au moyen d’un
jeu de connecteurs homologués (rallonge téléphonique).
• L’attention de l’utilisateur est attirée sur le fait que le respect des
conditions mentionnées ci-dessus ne constitue pas une garantie
contre les dégradations de qualité du service dans certaines
circonstances.
• L’indice d’équivalence de la sonnerie (IES) sert à indiquer le
nombre maximal de terminaux qui peuvent être raccordés à
une interface téléphonique. La terminaison d’une interface
peut consister en une combinaison quelconque de dispositifs,
à la seule condition que la somme d’indices d’équivalence de la
sonnerie de tous les dispositifs n’excède pas 5.
117
• Le nombre d’équivalents sonnerie (REN) de ce produit est 1,0.
• Les réparations sur un appareil certifié doivent être faites
par une société d’entretien canadienne autorisée par le
Gouvernement canadien et désignée par le fournisseur. Toute
réparation ou modification que pourrait faire l’utilisateur de
cet appareil, ou tout mauvais fonctionnement, donne à la
compagnie de télécommunication le droit de débrancher
l’appareil.
• Pour sa propre protection, l’utilisateur doit s’assurer que
les prises de terre de l’appareil d’alimentation, les lignes
téléphoniques et les tuyaux métalliques internes, s’il y en a, sont
bien connectés entre eux. Cette précaution est particulièrement
importante dans les zones rurales
CAUTION
Au lieu d’essayer de faire ces branchements eux-mêmes, les
utilisateurs sont invités à faire appel à un service d’inspection
faisant autorité en matière d’électricité ou à un électricien, selon
le cas.
Respecte les limites de la classe B de la NMB-003 du
Canada.
