Safety Precautions
Please read the safety warnings and cautions provided in this guide to ensure that you use your
machine safely. Do not attempt to use the machine in any way not described in this guide.
Warning
You may cause an electric shock/fire or damage the machine if you ignore any of
these safety precautions.
Location
Do not place the machine close to flammable solvents such as alcohol or thinners. If
flammable substances come into contact with electrical parts inside the machine, it may
result in fire or electrical shock.
Power supply
Never attempt to plug or unplug the machine from the power supply when your hands are
wet. This may result in electrical shock.
Always push the plug all the way into the power outlet. If the prongs of the power plug
come into contact with metal objects, it may result in fire or electrical shock.
Never damage, modify, stretch or excessively bend or twist the power cord. Do not place
heavy objects on the power cord. These actions may cause electrical damage and result in
fire or electrical shock.
Never plug the machine into a power socket that is shared with other equipment (extension
lead/cord, 2- or 3-way adapter, etc.). This may result in fire or electrical shock.
Plug the machine into a standard 110-127 V AC, 50/60 Hz or 200-240 V AC, 50/60 Hz,
(depending on your local electrical requirements), two-prong* grounded outlet. Operate the
machine only from the type of power source indicated on the machine's label or a fire,
electrical shock, or malfunction may occur. If you are unsure of the type of power available,
consult your local power company.
* The shape of the plug and outlet may vary depending on the country of purchase.
Do not allow the power cord to be near objects that emit heat. The outer cover of the power
cord may melt resulting in fire or electrical shock.
Never use the machine if the power cord is bundled or knotted. Knots in the cord may
result in fire or electrical shock.
If you detect smoke, unusual smells or strange noises around the machine, immediately
unplug the machine at the power supply and contact your local authorized Canon dealer or
the Canon help line.
Using the machine in such conditions may result in fire or electrical shock.
Periodically, unplug the machine and use a dry cloth to wipe off any dust or dirt collected
on the plug and the power outlet.
If the machine is placed at a location exposed to a lot of dust, smoke, or high humidity, the
dust collected on the plug absorbs moisture and may cause insulation failure and fire.
Maintenance
Do not service the machine yourself except as specifically described in this guide. If further
servicing is required, contact your local authorized Canon dealer or the Canon help line.
When storing the machine, choose a location where the machine is not exposed to dust.
Dust accumulation may prevent the machine from operating properly.
Use a damp cloth to clean the machine. Never use flammable solvents such as alcohol,
benzene or thinners. If flammable solvents come in contact with electrical components
inside the machine, it could cause a fire or electrical shock.
Always turn OFF the power and unplug the machine from the power outlet before cleaning
the machine.
If you leave ON or accidentally switch the machine ON while cleaning it, it may result in
injury or damage the machine.
3
Handling
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the machine. There are no user serviceable parts
inside the machine.
The machine contains high-voltage components. Never attempt any maintenance
procedure not described in this guide. Incorrect maintenance procedures may damage the
machine, or cause a fire or electrical shock.
Do not drop paper clips, staples, or other metal objects inside the machine. Also do not
spill water, liquid, or flammable substances inside the machine. If these items come into
contact with high-voltage parts inside the machine, it may result in fire or electrical shock.
If these items are dropped or spilled in the machine, turn OFF the power and unplug the
power cord immediately with dry hands. Then contact your local authorized Canon dealer
or the Canon help line.
Do not use flammable sprays near the machine.
This could cause a fire or electrical shock if the spray comes into contact with electrical
components inside the machine.
There are high-voltage components inside the machine. If you are looking inside the
machine to clear paper jams etc., do not allow metal objects such as jewelry to come into
contact with the inside of the machine. Contact may result in burns or electrical shock.
Others
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.
When setting the machine near electric products with fluorescent lighting, separate the

z Always press [ON/OFF] before disconnecting the power cord. This
ensures the FINE Cartridge is covered to prevent it from drying out.
z If the machine is not used for an extended period of time, we
recommend making black & white and color prints/copies or
performing FINE Cartridge cleaning about once every month to
prevent degradation of the FINE Cartridge. (See page 79)
z The FINE Cartridge has many nozzles in order to produce highdefinition prints. In the same way that the tip of a felt-tip or marker pen
will naturally dry out over time and become unusable even with the cap
in place, the nozzles might become clogged. Periodically printing or
performing FINE Cartridge cleaning can help to prevent this kind of
clogging.
Note
z The power cannot be turned OFF with [ON/OFF] while the machine is
operating.
z Your machine performs a FINE Cartridge cleaning every time you plug
in the machine. This ensures optimum print quality but also consumes
a small amount of ink during the cleaning process. We recommend
turning OFF the power with [ON/OFF].

General Paper Guidelines
„ Paper Types You Cannot Use
Do not use:
z Folded, creased, curled, or wrinkled paper
z Envelopes with double flaps, or with pressure seals
z Moist paper
z Paper with holes (e.g. punched holes)
z Very thin paper (less than 17 lb. or 64 g/m2)
z Very thick paper (more than 28 lb. or 105 g/m2) other than genuine Canon paper
z Postcards with photographs or stickers adhered to them
z Envelopes made with embossed or treated surfaces
„ Handling Paper
z Hold the paper as close as possible to its edges and try not to touch the print surface. The
print quality will deteriorate if the print surface is damaged or becomes dirty.
z Do not touch the print surface until the ink has dried.
z Some paper may curl and the print surface may smudge if you have used a large amount of
ink for printing. Paper that tends to curl is not recommended for printing photographs or
graphics. Use it for printing mainly text.
z If the paper is curled, uncurl (flatten) it before printing.
z Place the paper back into its packet when not using it, and store out of direct sunlight in a
place where the temperature and humidity are low.
z If the printed area is traced with a highlight pen or paint-stick or stained with water or sweat,
ink may blur.

recommended that you allow the ink to dry for 24 hours.
z Do not attempt to dry the ink with a hair dryer or by exposing printouts to direct sunlight.
z Do not store or display printouts in hot, damp, or humid conditions. Never expose them to
heat or direct sunlight.
z Store printouts in photo albums, photo frames, or presentation binders to protect them from
direct exposure to air or sunlight.
z Do not mount printouts in an adhesive-type album as you may not be able to remove them.

the new or refurbished Canon-brand product (“Product”) packaged with this limited warranty, when
purchased and used in the United States only.
The Product is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and
service (a) for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase when delivered to you in
new condition in its original container or (b) for 90 days from the date of original purchase for
refurbished Products. Defective parts or a defective Product returned to a Canon USA repair facility
or a Canon USA Authorized Service Facility (“ASF”), and proven to be defective upon inspection, will
be repaired, exchanged for new or comparable rebuilt parts, or exchanged for a refurbished Product,
as determined by the Canon USA repair facility or the ASF. Warranty repair or replacement shall not
extend the original warranty period of the Product. A dated proof of purchase is required at the time
of warranty service. A copy of your dated bill of sale will satisfy this requirement. This warranty does
not cover any accessories, or any consumables, such as paper or ink cartridges, as to which there
shall be no warranty or replacement.
This limited warranty shall only apply if the Product is used in conjunction with compatible
computers, peripheral equipment and software. Canon USA shall have no responsibility for such
items except for compatible Canon brand peripheral equipment covered by a separate warranty
(“Separate Warranty”). Repairs of such Canon brand peripheral equipment shall be governed by the
terms of the Separate Warranty. Non-Canon brand equipment and software that may be distributed
with the Product are sold “as is” and without warranty of any kind by Canon USA, including any
implied warranty regarding merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and all such warranties
are disclaimed. The sole warranty, if any, with respect to such non-Canon brand items is given by
the manufacturer or producer thereof.
This limited warranty covers all defects encountered in normal use of the Product and does not apply
in the following cases:
(a) Loss of or damage to the Product due to abuse, neglect, mishandling, improper packaging by
you, alteration, accident, electrical current fluctuations, improper use, failure to follow operating
or maintenance instructions in, or environmental conditions prescribed in, Canon USA’s User’s
manual or other documentation, or services performed by someone other than a Canon USA
repair facility or ASF. Without limiting the foregoing, dropping the Product, scratches, and
abrasions will be presumed to have resulted from misuse, abuse or failure to operate the
Product as set forth in the User’s manual or other documentation for the Product.
(b) Use of parts or supplies (other than those sold by Canon USA) that cause damage to the
Product or cause abnormally frequent service calls or service problems.
(c) If the Product has had its serial number or dating defaced, altered or removed.
