1.2 Ink Stains
1.2.1 Ink path
Be careful not to touch the ink path as it may stain the printer, your hands, or clothes
during repair.
The ink path is the nozzle section of the BJ cartridge, head cap, head wiper,
maintenance jet receiving section, and the waste ink absorbers.
For the color BJ cartridge, the ink inlets of the ink cartridge and the joint pipes of the
print head body are also part of the ink path, so take the same care with them.
CAUTION
The ink is not a harmful substance to the human body, but it does contain
organic solvents.
Black ink: isopropyl alcohol 67-63-0, glycerin 56-81-5
Color ink: isopropyl alcohol 67-63-0, glycerin 56-81-5
Take care not to get ink in the mouth or eyes. If ink does get into the eyes,
wash it out with plenty of water and consult a doctor immediately. If, for
some reason, a large amount of the ink is swallowed, consult a doctor
immediately.
Please provide the doctor with the information printed on the BJ cartridge
label. This ink contains dyes, and cannot be removed from clothing, etc.

1.2.2 Ink mist
The BJ cartridge ejects ink onto the paper. However, after the printer has been used
for a long period of time or under heavy duty use, a small amount of ink mist
bouncing back off the paper during printing can dirty the inside of the front cover and
platen area.
Wipe the dirty areas with a soft damp cloth as this ink can dirty the paper, or the
hands or clothing of service personnel.

2. MACHINE PRECAUTIONS
2.1 Precautions for Handling BJ Cartridges
2.1.1 Turning the printer ON/OFF
The printer will automatically cap the cartridge heads one minute after printing
operations are completed, to prevent the ink from leaking or drying out.
When unplugging the power cord, wait at least one minute after completing an
operation such as printing, feeding paper, cleaning the print head, etc.
If the power cord is accidentally unplugged before one minute has passed, replug the
AC adapter and wait for more than one minute before unplugging the power cord.
CAUTION
If the nozzles are not capped, the ink may leak or dry out, causing the
nozzles to clog.
2.1.2 When the printer is not in use
BJ cartridges should be stored either installed in the printer or in the BJ cartridge
container.
CAUTION
If the BJ cartridge is removed from the printer or BJ Cartridge Container,
the ink may leak or dry out, causing the nozzles to clog.
2.1.3 Transportation precautions
When transporting the printer, follow the procedure below.
1) Disconnect the interface cable and AC power cord as described above in Part 3: 1.3
Setup Procedure (page 3-3).
2) Put the BJ cartridge in the BJ cartridge container.
3) Repack the printer in its original box and packing materials.
Figure 1-4 Storing the BJ Cartridge
NOTE
If you do not have the original packing materials, use an ample amount of
shock-absorbing materials.

Part 1: Safety and Precautions
BJC-1000
2.1.4 Ink electroconductivity
The ink in the BJ cartridge is electroconductive. If ink leaks into the printer’s
mechanical parts, use a damp paper towel, etc., to wipe clean. If it leaks into the
printer’s electrical components, use tissue paper, etc., to wipe clean completely. If ink
gets into the IC chips on the PCB and it is difficult to clean, replace the PCB.
CAUTION
If ink has leaked inside the printer, do not plug in the power cord. It may
damage the circuitry.
2.2 Printer Handling
2.2.1 Spur deformation prevention
Do not deform the spurs. If spurs are deformed, their contact area with the printed
paper increases, causing more ink to adhere. This can lead to the paper becoming
stained with ink. (A dotted line may appear where the spurs have contacted the
paper.)

2.2.2 Precautions to prevent damage from static electricity
The electrostatic charge accumulated on clothing can damage electric elements and
their characteristics. Do not touch the contact points of the carriage ribbon cable and
BJ cartridge.

2.2.3 Ink leakage precautions
Do not carry, pack or store the printer without a BJ cartridge installed. The ink
within the purge unit may flow back and contaminate the inside of the printer. When
packing up the printer, make sure the carriage is in the capping position (the right
end of the platen).

3. PRECAUTIONS FOR SERVICE
3.1 EEPROM Data Precautions
The printer keeps track of various settings, the total waste ink amount, and the total
sheets printed with the black, color and photo BJ cartridges. This data is stored in the
EEPROM on the logic board. Note the following precautions during servicing:
1) Before servicing
Check the EEPROM data with a test print. The total sheets printed can give you an
idea of how much the printer has been used.
2) During logic board (EEPROM) replacement
Always visually check the waste ink amount absorbed by the waste ink absorbers
and replace them when necessary as explained in Part 5: 3.3 Logic Board and Bottom
Cover Replacement Cautions (page 5-4).
If the waste ink absorbers are not visually checked regularly, they may reach or
exceed their full capacity before “waste ink full” is detected. The waste ink may
therefore start leaking.
The memory data for the replacement logic board (EEPROM) is not defined.
Therefore, after replacing the logic board (and EEPROM), reset the total waste ink
amount to zero by clearing the data.
3) After bottom cover unit replacement
After replacing the bottom cover unit, reset the total waste ink amount to zero by
clearing the EEPROM data.
CAUTION
REF.
After the EEPROM is reset, the data it contained cannot be printed out
with a test printout. If you want to check the stored data, be sure to
execute test printout before resetting the EEPROM.
When the stored data is reset, the various settings, the total count of
printed sheets, and the total waste ink amount will all be reset. The total
sheets printed and waste ink amount cannot be input using the operation
panel.
Immediately after the printer is turned on, it keeps track of the estimated
waste ink amount based on the usage conditions. To prevent ink leakage
when the waste ink amount exceeds the waste ink absorption capacity, the
printer stops printing and indicates an error when the waste ink
absorption capacity is close to being full.
For details on checking the EEPROM data with a test printout and for
clearing the data, see Part 3: 2.4 EEPROM Reset (page 3-13).
If the printer stops operating in the case of a waste ink full error, follow the
countermeasures described in Part 5: 4.1 Troubleshooting (page 5-5).

Part 1: Safety and Precautions
BJC-1000
3.2 Static Electricity Precautions
The electrostatic charge accumulated in clothing can damage electric elements and
their characteristics. In order to prevent static electricity, touch a metallic part that is
grounded to release the static electricity before disassembling the printer for servicing.
Before discharging static electricity, do not touch electrical sections such as the logic
board and contact points of the carriage ribbon cable (see Figure 1-6 ) when the carriage
ribbon cable is connected to the logic board.

3.3 Disassembly and Reassembly Precautions
The printer is comprised of a large number of plastic parts. When disassembling the
printer, take care not to break or bend plastic hooks.
CAUTION
Some plastic parts contain glass fibers for extra rigidity and precision, but
since their viscosity is low, plastic hooks can break easily when excessive
force is used. Use a precision screwdriver, and do not pull plastic hooks
with excessive force when unhooking them.
Never apply excessive force
Hook
when releasing a hook.
Figure 1-9 How to Release Plastic Hooks
3.4 Built-in Self-diagnostic Functions
The printer has built-in self-diagnostic functions to detect hardware defects. The
results of self-diagnosis are indicated on the host computer's screen as an error. (The
host computer should be set in nibble mode, and use the BJ status monitor under
Windows 95/98.) For details, refer to Part 3: 2.1 Error Indications (Page 3-10).

When using the color or photo BJ cartridge, 360 (H) ✕ 360 (V) dpi printing is possible.
Photo-like printing can be realized by using the photo BJ cartridge.
Use the high resolution paper HR-101 when printing with photo BJ cartridge.
Since the three color inks in the color and photo BJ cartridge are integrated, when one
color ink runs out, the BJ cartridge must be replaced. Also, when more than 6
months have passed after the cartridge is unpacked, or if the printing quality is not
improved even after cleaning the head over five times, replace the BJ cartridge.

8) Input/ output signals:
Compatible Mode
STROBE [Input]
This signal is used to read DATA1 to DATA8. The signal becomes valid after BUSY
signal goes Low and the printer outputs an ACKNLG signal. The host computer
does not send the next signal until it receives ACKNLG signal. It is normally High;
after it goes Low, the printer receives data. When the signal remains Low, the
printer does not operate until it goes High.
DATA1 to 8 [Input]
The printer receives data with the STROBE signal. The state of each bit of the
signal must be maintained for at least 0.5 µs from the rising edge of the STROBE
signal.
ACKNLG [Output]
This signal is a response signal to the STROBE signal. The host computer does not
send the next STROBE signal until this signal is sent. When the power is turned on
or the BUSY signal goes Low for the input of the INIT signal, this signal is sent
regardless of the STROBE signal.
BUSY [Output]
When this signal is High, the printer is BUSY; when Low, the printer is READY. The
signal goes High when data is received, when the printer is offline, or when an error
occurs (paper-out, paper jam).
P.E. [Output]
When the printer cannot feed paper, this signal goes High. Then BUSY signal goes
High and the SELECT and FAULT signals go Low. The signal goes Low when the
paper is set and the printer goes online. FAULT and SELECT signals then go High
from Low. If paper is not ejected (paper jam) by executing paper eject command,
this signal and BUSY signal go High, and SELECT and FAULT go Low. In this case,
the signals do not change even if the paper is ejected.
2-10
Part 2: Product Specifications
BJC-1000
SELECT [Output]
The printer is selected when this signal is High. The printer is deselected when this
signal is Low. This signal goes Low when the printer is offline or when an error
occurs (paper-out, paper jam, head error, etc.).
AUTO FEED XT [Input]
Not used.
INIT [Input]
INIT from the system resets the printer to its initial power-on state. In BJ mode, the
BUSY signal goes High, and any received data is printed. In LQ mode, the BUSY
signal goes High, and the print buffer is cleared. When INIT signal goes Low, it
resets the printer to the power-on default state.
FAULT [Output]
This signal goes Low when the printer is in an error state (paper-out, paper jam, etc.).
SELECT IN [Input]
Not used.
Nibble Mode
Host Clk [Input]
The STROBE signal is to read DATA 1 to DATA 8.
Negotiation phase:
Trigger signal to send the protocol confirmation to the printer.
DATA 1-8 [Input]
The printer receives data with the Host Clk signal.
The state of each bit of this signal must be maintained for at least 0.5 µs from the
rising edge of the Host Clk signal.
Ptr Clk [Output]
Reverse data transmission phase:
The printer requests the host computer to read the data by making the Ptr Clk
signal Low. After finishing reading, the host computer notifies peripheral equipment
of completion of data receiving by making the Host Busy signal High.
Ptr Busy [Output]
Reverse data transmission phase:
Indicates bit 3 and bit 7 of the transmission data.
Ack Data Req [Output]
• Reverse data transmission phase:
Indicates bit 2 and bit 6 of the transmission data.
• Negotiation phase:
Trigger signal to inform the host computer of the printer’s is condition (Whether it
supports nibble mode or not, whether there is reverse transmission data or not).
Xflag [Output]
• Reverse data transmission phase:
Indicates bit 1 and bit 5 of the transmission data.
• Negotiation phase:
Informs the host computer whether printer supports nibble mode or not,
synchronizing with the falling edge of the Ack data Req signal. “Low” means that it
supports nibble mode.
2-11
Part 2: Product Specifications
BJC-1000
Host Busy [Input]
• Reverse data transmission phase:
Indicates that the host computer is ready to receive the data from the printer by
making the Host Busy signal Low. After that, it goes High in synchronizing with
Low pulse of Ptr Clk signal to verify receiving data.
• Reverse idle phase:
The Host Busy signal goes High in response to the Low pulse of the Ptr Clk signal,
and enters the reverse data transmission phase again.
lNIT [Input]
When this signal becomes Low, the printer’s state becomes BUSY. When the signal
changes from Low to High, it resets the printer control system to the initial state.
This signal is normally High and the pulse width must be at least 0.5 µs at the
printer side.
After initializing, the printer enters the compatible mode.
DataAvail [Output]
• Reverse data transmission phase:
Indicates bit 0 and bit 4 of the transmission data.
• Negotiation phase:
Informs the host computer if there is reverse transmission data or not in
synchronizing with the falling edge of the Ack Data Req signal. “L” means that
there is reverse transmission data.
1284 Active [Input]
This signal confirms that the printer is a 1284 compatible device when 1284 Active
signal goes High and Host Busy signal goes Low. It goes Low with the termination
phase.

1.6 Banner Printing
When printing on banner paper, set the paper support and set the paper delivery flap to
the upright position. To avoid misfeeding, put a light crease between the first and
second page and set the first page in the sheet feeder. Place the rest of the banner
paper behind the printer. Each top margin for banner printing is set at 0mm.
However, to avoid printing on the platen, printing will start 3mm from the initial top
margin. Set an extra sheet at the end in case the bottom edge is not printed on the last
page.
Banner printing uses a large amount of ink. To avoid ink shortage, use of a new ink
cartridge when printing banners is recommended.

1.2 Printing Signal Flow
The print signal flow from when the printer receives the print data to when printing is
executed is described below.
a) The print data, which include control signals, are output from the host computer,
and are sent to the MPU & printer controller via an interface.
b) The print data sent to the MPU & printer controller are then separated into control
signals and bit image data. The control signals are processed into control
commands based on the data stored inside the control ROM, and bit-mapped image
data are organized inside the print buffer of the DRAM.
c) The image data organized inside the print buffer are then moved to the MPU &
printer controller, one line of each pass at a time.
d) The image data moved to the MPU & printer controller are then converted to serial
data, and are output to the BJ head as print signals. Inside the BJ head, the serial
data are then converted into one column of parallel print data, thus allowing
printing to be implemented.
e) While performing check of the information (data) inside the control ROM, control of
motor drivers, and detection of the BJ head and printer statuses, the MPU & printer
controller works to control the entire print drive control system.

1.3 Print Drive
To eject ink from the head for printing, the printer controller generates control signals
to the BJ head.
The control signals consist of the drive control signal for ejecting ink from the head's
nozzles and the temperature control signal for adjusting the head’s temperature so that
the amount of ink ejected is uniform.
To achieve optimum printing, both these control signals are optimized by the printer
controller and sent to the BJ head through the carriage ribbon cable.
The drive frequency varies depending on the printing mode and BJ cartridge type.
1.3.1 Printing drive control
a) Black BJ cartridge drive control
The driving control of 64 nozzles in the black BJ cartridge is executed by the matrix
structure of 8 COM signals and 8 SEG signals. The COM signal connects the COM1
to COM8 circuits to the head drive power supply (VH) in order that the 64 nozzles
are ready to print in units of eight nozzles. While the COM signal is connected to the
head drive power supply, the SEG signal connects the SEG circuits (SEG1 to SEG8)
for the even- and odd-numbered nozzles to the ground, and applies the heater
voltage to the heater plate. The load on the AC adapter is reduced and ink charging
delay is prevented by driving the head in steps.
The SEG signal has two pulses, pre-pulse and main pulse. The pre-pulse does not
eject ink, but increases the head temperature to the appropriate value, and the main
pulse ejects ink. The printer controls each pulse width to obtain the optimum print
density according to the print speed and temperature.

b) Color BJ cartridge drive control
With exception of the following points, the head drive control of the color BJ
cartridge is the same as that of the black BJ cartridge.
The nozzle configuration of color BJ cartridge is different from that of black BJ
cartridge, and the COM 1 and 2 signals are used for driving the nozzle heaters for C,
COM 4 and 5 signals for M and COM 6 and 7 for Y.
The color BJ cartridge has 16 nozzles each for Y, M, and C, whereas the black BJ
cartridge has 64 nozzles for black only.

2.1 720 dpi Printing/Smoothing Feature
This features operates only with the black BJ cartridge.
2.1.1 Canon extension mode
In the Canon Extended mode, the printer driver creates 720 dpi data for the
horizontal direction and sends it to the printer, resulting in high-quality printing.
The printer driver smoothes the printed character’s edges at 720 dpi along the
horizontal direction. The 720 dpi data for the horizontal direction is sent to the
printer and the edges are smoothed at a high resolution.

2.2 Printing Modes
2.2.1 Printing mode
Depending on the cartridge installed, the media, the printing mode, the resolution, the
printing data, etc., the printer varies the carriage movement, bubble jet head driving
frequency, etc., to attain high-quality printing without any bleeding or shifting in the
printout.
The smoothing function is available only when using the black BJ cartridge. When
the 720 dpi printing/smoothing feature is used, the carriage feed pitch is set to 1/720
inch. Although this slows down the carriage speed, the bubble jet head’s driving
frequency (heat frequency) is increased so that the overall printing throughput
decreases little.
When monochrome printing is conducted using the color BJ cartridge, composite
black is used as the color. Composite black is made from three colors of Y, M and C,
and it is printed in 66.7% duty of each color, total approximately 200% duty. The
boundary line is printed with 100% duty of each color, total 300% duty. This makes
the black color look darker.
With the photo BJ cartridge installed, this printer prints pixels by dividing the pixel
data into a maximum of 4-values (no printed, print 1 dot, print 2 dots, print 3 dots).
This method enables the printer to achieve high degree gradation printing. When
printing with 2 dots, the second dot is printed in the 720 dpi position. When printing
with 3 dots, the second dot is printed in the 720 dpi position while the third dot is
printed on top of the first dot. When monochrome printing using the photo BJ
cartridge, printing is conducted at a maximum total (C/Y/M) of 400% duty, but the
boundary lines are not emphasized.
The printing method for the respective printing modes are listed below.

2.3 Optimum Printing Direction Control
To prevent vertical misalignment of the printed characters, etc., when print data is
printed continuously in the direction of the paper feeding direction, printing is executed
with the carriage moving in only one direction.
However, when printing in the paper feeding direction is not continuous, since vertical
misalignment is not so noticeable, the printing direction is alternated so that printing is
also executed from the opposite carriage direction. This improves the throughput.
If four or more successive null rasters are detected in the lower (in the direction of
paper ejection) 24 nozzles for the printing data in the printer buffer during single-pass
printing, printing is executed up to the null raster. From the null raster onward,
printing is executed from the opposite carriage direction. From the next raster onward,
printing is executed from the same carriage direction until the direction changes again.

3.1.1 Mechanical components
1) BJ cartridge
The printer can use three types of BJ cartridges: black, color, and photo. The user
installs the black, color, or photo BJ cartridge according to the required application.
All these cartridges are ink-disposable.
2) Purge unit
Driven by the carriage motor, the purge unit helps to maintain high-quality printing
by capping and wiping the BJ cartridge’s bubble jet face. It ensures that the ink in
the nozzles is ejected easily.
When the printer is not in use, the purge unit caps the BJ cartridge’s nozzles for
protection.
3) Carriage unit
Driven by the carriage motor, the carriage moves horizontally across the paper.
Through the carriage ribbon cable, the printing signals from the logic board are
transmitted to the BJ cartridge in the carriage.
By controlling the purge unit's slide lock pin, the carriage controls the engagement
of the paper feed motor’s drive power between the paper feed/purge unit and the
sheet feeder.

4) Paper feed mechanism and sheet feeder
The built-in sheet feeder is driven by the paper feed motor. Plain paper as well as
coated paper, transparencies, back print film, envelopes, etc., can be loaded and fed
automatically into the paper feed mechanism.
Driven by the paper feed motor, the paper feed mechanism rotates the feed rollers to
feed the paper vertically.
When printing transparencies and back print film, remove each sheet immediately
after it is printed. This is to allow enough time for the ink to dry.
The paper ejection operation of this printer is performed using the RESUME button.

3.2 BJ Cartridge
3.2.1 Black BJ cartridge structure
The black BJ cartridge has a printing head equipped with 64 nozzles. The printing
head and ink cartridge are built-in.
1) Side cover
This plastic cover is fixed to the cartridge body to prevent ink leaking from the ink
sponge.
2) Ink sponge
This sponge is soaked with black ink. It is compressed and stored in the cartridge
body.
3) Cartridge body
This is a plastic case which links the ink sponge with the bubble jet head unit via
the ink filter.
4) Air Hole with Pressure Regulation Cap
As the ink is consumed, the pressure inside the cartridge decreases compared to the
atmospheric pressure. This makes it more difficult for the ink to be supplied to the
head. To prevent this, the ink cartridge has an air intake for maintaining a constant
pressure inside the cartridge body.
5) Bubble jet head unit
As dictated by the printing signals received through the signal contact, ink is ejected
through the 64 bubble jet nozzles.

3.2.3 Bubble head unit structure
1) Bubble jet nozzles
The ink in the sponge passes through a mesh-type ink filter and flows to the bubble
jet nozzles through the joint pipe.
When the head-driving current is supplied to the heater board, and multiple ink
bubbles form. Eventually, only one ink bubble is formed. The head-driving current
is turned off before the ink drop leaves the nozzle. The bubbling however continues
with the residual heat and the ink drops are ejected from the nozzles.
After an ink drop is ejected, the nozzle is filled with ink supplied from the ink
sponge.
NOTE
The print head’s heater board uses semiconductor technology with the
heater and circuitry built on a silicon plate.
This silicon plate, which contains various electrical circuitry, is attached to
an aluminum base. The plastic cover, which is shaped to fit the nozzles, is
also attached.

6) Temperature control
The optimum temperature of the BJ cartridge ink for high quality printing is about
23°C (73.4°F). The bubble jet head unit has warm-up heaters on the silicon plate.
The black BJ cartridge, furthermore, has temperature sensors, but they are not
used.
The printer controls the temperature by varying the heat pulse width (pre/main
pulse width) of the SEG signal and turning the warm-up heaters on and off. The
ambient temperature is detected by the temperature sensor on the printer logic
board, not by the temperature sensors on the silicon plate. If it is 16°C (61°F) or
less, the bubble jet head unit nozzles are warmed by the warm-up heaters.

7) BJ cartridge detection feature
The presence or absence of the BJ cartridge is always monitored.
The contact between the terminal of the warm-up heater in the BJ cartridge and the
carriage is checked.
8) BJ cartridge recognition feature
Whether the cartridge is a black, color, or photo BJ cartridge, it is determined by
pins #11 and #15 on the J1 connector on the printer logic board.
Cartridge types can be distinguished with combinations of pins #11 and #15 as
shown in the table below.

9) Print density control
This printer controls the quantity of ink ejected so it prints at constant density. It
does this by predicting the change in the head temperature while printing and using
the predicted temperature.
The quantity of ink ejected from the nozzles is controlled to obtain the optimum
print density by controlling the heat pulse width (pre/main pulse width) every 50 ms
based on the following information: the ambient temperature sensed by the
temperature sensor on the logic board; the number of dots printed by the printer;
the head temperature predicted from the switch-on time of the warm-up heater; and
the head rank ID for correcting production variations of the bubble jet head unit (the
heater drive voltage is fixed at 27.6 V DC).

3.3 Purge Unit
3.3.1 Purge unit functions
1) Capping function
The purge unit's cap is pressed against the face of the print head to prevent the ink
from drying out or leaking.
If print data is not received for 60 seconds or more during a printing operation, the
purge unit wipes the printing head face. If print data is still not received for another
60 seconds, the purge unit caps the printing head.
Other than during a printing operation, if print data is not received after a certain
period of time (varies between 5 to 20 seconds), the purge unit caps the print head.
2) Cleaning function
The cleaning operation includes the wiping of paper and ink residue that has
adhered to the printing head's face plate. It also sucks out ink from the printing
head to replenish the inside of the nozzles with fresh ink.
The amount of ink consumed by the cleaning operation is as follows.
Black BJ Cartridge installed : 0.12 g
Color BJ Cartridge or Photo BJ Cartridge installed : 0.21 g
To maintain high printing quality, the purge unit cleans the printing head at the
following times:
• After the AC power cord is connected.
• After the BJ cartridge is replaced.
• Before the printing operation is performed and it has been 72 hours since the last
time the head was cleaned.
• When the printed dot count exceeds the set value.
• When the RESUME button is pressed down for 2 seconds or more.
4-17
Part 4: Technical Reference
BJC-1000
3.3.2 Purge unit structure
1) Purge drive gear
The purge drive gear which is driven by the transmission gear activates the cam
controlling the pumping operation. The transmission gear is rotated by the paper
feed roller which is driven by the paper feed motor.
The cam's position is detected by the home position sensor via the sensor arm.
2) Wiper unit
When the carriage moves from left to right, the wiper retracts so that it does not
touch the head. However, when the carriage moves from right to left, the wiper
wipes off the ink from the BJ cartridge's face plate at the following times:
when the printer is turned on, once every 60 seconds (or after a set dot count is
reached) during printing, when the paper feed operation ends, when the pumping
operation ends, and when the cap is opened or closed.
3) Cap unit
The cap unit has a rubber cap. When the carriage moves to the home position, the
cap unit is pressed against the print head's face plate to cap it.
Also, since the cap is connected to a pump, the cap sucks ink out of the BJ cartridge
during the pumping operation. The ink which has been sucked out is sent to the
bottom cover unit's waste ink absorber.
4) Maintenance jet absorber
The maintenance jet absorber at the home position absorbs the ink ejected from the
nozzles for a test to adjust the nozzles in the following cases: when the printer is
turned on, during printing, when wiping occurs during printing, when paper feeding
ends, when the pumping operation ends, and when the cap opens.
5) Slide lock pin
The slide lock pin moves the cap when the carriage moves from left to right and reaches
the capping position. Capping is thereby executed and the slide arm is unlocked.
When the slide arm is unlocked, the feed roller's rotation is transmitted to the purge
drive gear and sheet feeder.

3.4 Carriage
3.4.1 Carriage functions
1) Print head installation
The carriage holds the BJ cartridge mechanically with the carriage ribbon cable, and
is connected to the circuit on the logic board.
2) Carriage driver
Driven by the carriage motor and carriage belt, the carriage moves across the paper
horizontally.
3) Paper thickness adjustment
With the paper thickness lever at the top of the carriage, the gap between the paper
and printing head can be adjusted.
4) Paper feed motor driver
When the carriage moves to the cleaning position at the right end, the slide arm is
unlocked. The paper feed motor's drive power, normally used for paper feeding
during printing, can be diverted to drive the purge unit and sheet feeder.

3.4.2 Carriage structure
1) BJ cartridge mounting section
The cartridge holder moves with the locking lever which secures the BJ cartridge
onto the carriage.
When a BJ cartridge is secured onto the carriage, the ribbon cable's signal contacts
are pressed against the bubble jet head's signal contacts, enabling signals to be
transmitted from the logic board.
2) Carriage driver
The stepping-type carriage motor drives the carriage horizontally across the paper by
the carriage belt. After the photo interrupter type home position sensor behind the
carriage detects the home position edge as the initial position, the carriage is
controlled by the stepping pulse sent to the carriage motor.
The carriage motor is driven by a one to two-phase exciter at a fixed current.
Also, if a vertically-oriented line, etc., is printed from both carriage directions, it will
appear to be crooked or misaligned due to mechanical reasons. However, if the
vertically-oriented line is disjointed or not continuous, any misalignment will not be
that noticeable and printing is executed from both carriage directions. The slightlyoff timing of the detected home position edge is automatically corrected with the
software.
3) Paper thickness setting
When envelopes or thick paper are fed for printing, they will rub against the head
face causing possible damage and paper contamination. This can be prevented by
using the proper paper thickness setting.
The gap between the head and paper must be set to the optimum setting (one of two
settings) to match the thickness of paper being fed. This gap is adjusted by
changing the angle of the carriage guide frame and the carriage attachment angle.
The gap between the platen and head thereby changes.

4) Switching the paper feed motor drive transmission
The paper feed motor drives either the paper feed, purge unit, or cut sheet feeder
according to the position of the carriage. When the carriage is not at the right end,
the slide arm is locked by the purge unit's slide lock pin. In this condition, the
paper feed is driven by the feed roller. When the carriage is at the capping position,
the slide arm is unlocked and the paper feed motor drives the purge unit and sheet
feeder.
When the slide arm is unlocked and the feed roller rotates in the feeding direction,
the slide arm rotates until it reaches the cut sheet feeder gear to drive the gear.
When the slide arm is unlocked and the feed roller is rotated in the opposite direction of
the feeding direction, the slide arm rotates until it reaches the purge drive gear to drive
the gear.

3.5 Paper Feed
3.5.1 Outline of the paper feed
1) Paper feed mechanism
The paper feed mechanism supplies paper from the built-in cut-sheet feeder.
The built-in cut sheet feeder is driven by the paper feed motor. Paper stacked in the
sheet feeder is picked up and fed automatically. Even thick paper like envelopes can
be fed automatically without selecting the paper type mechanically with the paper
selection lever.
When the paper is sensed by the paper end sensor, it is fed automatically by the
paper feed roller until it reaches the starting position for printing on the platen.
During printing, the paper is fed by the rotation of the paper feed roller.
The paper, after printing, is delivered by the eject roller.
2) Paper feed operation
It is not possible to perform paper feed operations with the printer, however, paper
ejection can be performed with the RESUME button.

3.5.2 Structure of the sheet feeder
This printer has no paper selection lever on the cut sheet feeder.
If the paper meets specifications, it can be fed without selecting the paper type. The
paper is loaded in the cut sheet feeder such that a corner of it is caught by the paper
separator. When printing starts, the pick-up roller starts to rotate through the drive
of the paper feed motor. Plain paper is fed with its corner held by the paper separator,
and then pushed into the paper feed section. When printing on thick paper like
envelopes, as the paper is stiffer than the return force of the paper separator's spring,
the paper separator is pressed down to feed the paper.
The initial position of the pick-up roller is detected when the flag is sensed by the
pick-up roller sensor on the logic board.
When paper is sensed by the paper end sensor for over a second, it is fed
automatically until it reaches the starting position for printing.
When the paper pick-up operation is executed, if no paper is sensed, it is executed again. If
the paper is still not sensed, it is assessed as a paper feed error.

4. PRINTER ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
4.1 Overview
The electrical system functions are handled by the logic section or power supply.
The logic section converts the data from the interface into print signals or printer
operation signals and drives the BJ cartridge and motors while monitoring the status of
the sensors.
The power supply unit consists of a built in AC adapter which provides DC output to
the logic board, motors, and head etc. When DC input power from the AC adapter is
being supplied, all of the hardware components are active.

4.2.2 Logic section components
1) MPU & Printer controller (IC1)
The MPU & Printer controller contains a 16-bit CPU, 1K-bit RAM, 20-bit address bus
port, 16-bit data bus port, stepping motor controller, A-D converter, interface
controller, DRAM controller, buffer controller, print head controller, I/O port, and
other components.
MPU & Printer controller is synchronized with 16 MHz and 22.11 MHz external clock
input.
Built-in CPU
The 16-bit CPU generates the 8 MHz clock from the 16 MHz external clock input and
is synchronized with the clock.
Address bus
The 20-bit address bus port is connected to an 8 M-bit control ROM and printer
controller.
Data bus
Like the address bus, the 16-bit data bus port is connected to the 8 M-bit control
ROM.
Stepping motor controller
The stepping motor controller outputs the carriage motor's single- and two-phase
exciter drive signal and paper feed motor's two-phase exciter drive signal.
The stepping motor controller switches the carriage motor with the 5-step peak
current value for optimum driving. The stepping motor controller outputs the
switching control signal to the carriage motor driver.
A-D converter
The A-D converter digitally converts the following external analog signals
received/sent through the I/O port to enable them to be detected by the MPU &
printer controller:
AN0: The printer's internal temperature is detected by the thermistor on the logic
board.
AN1: It detects whether the BJ cartridge is installed in the printer, or not.
AN2: It monitors the VH voltage which drives the head of the cartridge.
AN3: The head rank is detected by the rank resistor in the BJ cartridge.
Interface controller
The interface controller receives from the computer, 8-bit parallel data which is
synchronized with the data strobe pulse (STROBE) through the BUSY/ACKNLG
handshake. It also controls other interface signals.
DRAM controller
The DRAM controller controls the 1 M bit DRAM's 8-bit addressbus and 16-bit data
bus and also executes read/write control, RAS/CAS control, and refresh control.
4-26
Part 4: Technical Reference
BJC-1000
Buffer controller
The buffer controller automatically reads the print buffer, and clears the data after it
is read.
Print head controller
The print head controller counts the number of dots of the bit map print data read
from the DRAM print buffer to control the heat pulse width (pre/main pulse width),
converts it to the COM and SEG signals for 8 x 8 matrix printing control, and
controls heating of the heater plate of the bubble jet nozzles of the BJ cartridge.
I/O port
Signals for the setting statuses determined by the RESUME button, head ID, paper
end sensor, home position sensor, pick-up roller sensor, head rank resistor,
thermistor, and head-driving voltage (VH) monitor are input through the input ports.
Signals for operations such as BJ cartridge detection and head-driving voltage
control are output from the output ports.
2) Control ROM (IC3)
The 8 M-bit control ROM contains the program for printer control.
3) DRAM (IC4)
Controlled by the printer controller, the 1 M-bit DRAM is used as print buffer and
working area.
4) Reset IC (IC7)
This IC detects the power voltage when power on or instantaneous power failure
occur and resets the MPU & Printer controller.
5) EEPROM (IC8)
Controlled by the printer controller, the 1 K-bit EEPROM (Electrically Erasable and
Programmable ROM) stores various function settings, the total count of printed
sheets, and the total waste ink amount.
6) Paper feed motor driver IC (IC6)
Controlled by the MPU & Printer controller, the paper feed motor driver drives the
paper feed motor (controlled by the two-phase exciter) with a constant-voltage
unipolar drive. The driver IC has four same circuits.
7) Carriage motor driver IC (IC12)
Controlled by the MPU & Printer controller, the carriage motor driver drives the
carriage motor (controlled by the one to two-phase exciter) with a fixed current
bipolar drive. In accordance with the switching signal from the MPU & Printer
controller, the peak current value is set to five steps and driven.
The driver IC has two same circuits.

Part 4: Technical Reference
BJC-1000
5. SENSOR FUNCTIONS
The printer has a pick-up roller sensor, paper end sensor, home position sensor (purge
sensor), printer temperature sensor, and head temperature sensor.
Also, the EEPROM counts and records the waste ink absorption amount. When the
waste ink absorber becomes full, the waste ink absorption amount indicates an error.

5.1 Pick-up Roller Sensor
The photo interrupter-type pick-up roller sensor detects the initial position of the sheet
feeder's pick-up roller. When the initial position is detected, the flag interrupts the
sensor.
5.2 Paper End Sensor
The photo interrupter-type paper end sensor detects with the paper sensor arm's flag
when a sheet of paper passes through the paper feeding mechanism. When the flag
interrupts the sensor, the sensor does not detect the paper. When the flag does not
interrupt the sensor, the sensor detects the paper.
5.3 Home Position Sensor (Purge Sensor)
The photo interrupter-type home position sensor senses the home position edge and
detects the carriage position. After the edge is detected, the carriage moves to the right.
At the home position, the maintenance jet is executed.
Also, at the capping position, the on/off of the home position sensor (purge sensor) flag
during the recovery operation is detected.
4-28
Part 4: Technical Reference
BJC-1000
5.4 Temperature Sensor
The temperature sensor is a thermistor which detects the printer's internal
temperature. The thermistor's resistance changes along with any temperature
changes. The change in the resistance is detected as a change in the voltage by the
MPU & Printer controller. The analog value input to the MPU & Printer controller is
converted into a digital value by the internal A-D converter. The temperature is thereby
detected. After the printer temperature is detected, the head-driving and head
temperature adjustment signal are controlled accordingly.
5.5 Waste Ink Amount Detection
Waste ink is discharged for head maintenance and absorbed by the waste ink absorber.
If the amount of waste ink discharged exceeds the absorption capacity of the waste ink
absorber, ink might leak from the printer.
To prevent ink from leaking, the waste ink absorber capacity is estimated and detected
when full.
The waste ink is discharged during maintenance jet and recovery. The amount of
waste ink discharged is estimated by counting the number of maintenance jet and
recovery. Then the waste ink amount with evaporated ink is calculated. When the
calculated waste ink amount exceeds the capacity of the waste ink absorber, a waste
ink-full error occurs.

3.3 Logic Board and Bottom Cover Replacement Cautions
3.3.1 Logic board replacement cautions
The various settings, waste ink amount, and other data stored in the logic board’s
EEPROM cannot be rewritten into the new EEPROM after the logic board is replaced.
The data in the new logic board’s EEPROM is not set. After the logic board/EEPROM is
replaced, reset the EEPROM as described in “Part 3: 2.4 EEPROM Reset” (page 3-13).
When replacing the logic board, visually check the amount of waste ink in the waste
ink absorber. Replace the bottom cover if necessary. Depending on the amount of
waste ink already absorbed, ink may leak even before a waste ink-full error warning
appears.
However, it is not necessary to replace it if the printer has been used for less than 2
weeks and less than 50 pages have been printed out.
Waste Ink Absorber
Figure 5-2 Bottom Cover
3.3.2 Cautions after replacing the bottom cover
After a waste ink-full error occurs and the bottom cover are replaced, reset the
EEPROM.
NOTE
When a waste ink-full error occurs, it can be assumed that the printer has
printed more sheets than its service life called for. However, this depends on
how many times the cartridge has been replaced and the usage conditions.
When a color BJ cartridge is used, more ink is consumed due to head
maintenance as compared to a black BJ cartridge. Therefore, the waste
ink amount will also be more.

This chapter consists of the following two sections on subsequent pages: “Error
condition diagnosis” for diagnosing the problem when the cause is unknown and
“Symptoms” for resolving problems whose cause is known.
If the cause of the problem is unknown, diagnose the problem. And if the cause is
known, follow the countermeasures to resolve the problem.
4.1.2 Troubleshooting cautions
1. Before troubleshooting, make sure the connectors and ribbon cable are properly
connected. If the problem occurs at random, be sure to check the connections.
2. When servicing the printer with its outer casing removed and the AC adapter
connected, beware of electrical shocks and PCB short circuiting.
3. Troubleshooting is described in flowchart form.
The following symbols are used in the flowcharts.

Stop
4. If there is a problem with the printing quality or paper feeding, first check that the
printer’s installation location and paper meet the required specifications. Also
check that the paper select lever and the paper thickness lever are set correctly
and that the paper is loaded properly.
5. After replacing parts or repairing the printer, be sure to make a test print to
confirm that the problem has been fixed.
If the problem still persists, troubleshoot again while skipping the steps already
executed.

However, Canon cannot guarantee the quality or performance of your
printer when you are using inks from other suppliers.

Chapter 1
Using the Printer With Windows 2
This chapter describes how to use the printer with your Windows
applications. It includes:
❍ Using a printer driver
Using the Printer
With Windows
❍ Printing a document
❍ Printer setup within Windows 98 and Windows 95
❍ Printer setup within Windows 3.1
❍ The Windows tabs
❍ Recommended Print Mode settings
❍ Customizing the Print Mode
❍ Executing a print job
❍ Printing speed versus color
Using a Printer Driver
Before you can use any type of printer with your computer, you must
install software that allows the printer and computer to communicate;
the software is called a printer driver. The printer driver tells the
computer what kind of a printer you are using. The printer driver also
controls the various settings, such as print quality and paper type. You
define these settings within the printer driver, and the printer driver then
communicates the settings to both the computer and the printer.
N
Chapter 2
You must install the BJC-1000 Series Printer Driver for Windows before
you can use the printer with your computer. If you are using Windows
98 or Windows 95, see your Quick Start Guide for instructions. If you are
using Windows 3.1, see Appendix B for instructions.

Printing Speed Versus Color
The BJC-1000 Series Printer Driver for Windows can interpret and
translate the full spectrum of colors, up to 16.7 million colors. When
printing in color, there is a significant increase in the amount of
information that the driver has to interpret and translate. When printing
with black ink only, the driver has only one color to interpret.
By decreasing the amount of colors that the printer driver has to
interpret, you can significantly decrease the time needed to translate
the information. This will speed up the overall printing process.

Ways to Improve Print Speed in Windows
To improve printing speed, you can try the following:
❍ Turn off the Print Manager in the Windows Control Panel
(Windows 3.1 only)
This avoids the extra step of sending the print file to the Print
Manager and may increase your printing speed by as much as 25%,
depending on the computer you are using.
❍ Add a permanent swap file in Windows 3.1
Under the 386 Enhanced icon in the Windows Control Panel, add or
create a permanent swap file that is from 4 MB to 9 MB. The
computer will be able to prepare the print file faster. See your
Windows documentation for instructions.
❍ Avoid diffusion halftones
In the Quality tab, choose Diffusion for Halftoning only when
printing final output or photographic images. Choosing a
Halftoning setting of Fine/Fast allows documents to print as much
as 20% faster because the computer does not need to compute to
“best possible position” for each dot. To select a Halftoning setting,
click the Main tab in the printer driver. Then double-click the
Advanced button and click the Quality tab.
❍ Avoid color adjustment
Disable the Color Adjustment option. This feature takes longer to
process in the computer because it requires special information. To
disable Color Adjustment, click the Main tab in the printer driver.
Then double-click the Advanced button and click the Color tab.

❍ Selecting paper types
❍ Setting the paper thickness lever
❍ Summary of printer settings for various print media
❍ Automatically loading paper
❍ Printing on envelopes

through the sheet feeder.
Chapter 3
Paper Handling

Paper Handling
❍ Using Canon’s Specialty Papers
Selecting Paper Types
One of the most important things you can do to assure the best possible
performance of your Bubble Jet printer is to select the correct paper.
Your printer produces letter quality print on most plain bond papers,
including cotton bond and photocopying papers; it does not require
special ink jet papers. However, the print quality varies with different
paper types. Be sure to test a type of paper before you purchase a large
quantity.
Plain Paper
The printer supports paper sizes of letter, legal, and A4 in portrait
orientation. You can use regular copier paper, cotton bond papers, and
typical letterhead. Always use paper without curls, folds, staples, or
damaged edges.
Glossy Photo Paper
Canon Glossy Photo Paper is a high gloss, thicker paper that produces
the look and feel of a photograph. Use this paper with the BC-05 Color
or BC-06 Photo BJ Cartridge to produce photo-realistic prints from
your printer. (In your printer driver, select Glossy Photo Paper when
you have this paper loaded.)
Banner Paper
Canon’s Banner Paper is specifically designed for printing one
continuous sheet in a banner format. The connected sheets are divided
by a perforation. You can print from two to six sheets at one time.
3-2
Paper Handling
Chapter 3
Brilliant White Paper
Canon’s unique paper formulation gives you a bright white printing
surface that produces incredibly brilliant colors and dark, crisp black
text. This paper works great for everyday use, as well as proposals, color
presentations, color charts/graphs, flyers, and newsletters. You can print
on both sides of the sheet. (In your printer driver, select Plain Paper
when you load this paper.)
High Resolution Paper
The Canon High Resolution Paper is designed to produce photo-realistic
quality output with sharp and vivid graphics. For best results, use the
optional BC-06 Photo BJ Cartridge to produce images comparable to
your favorite photographs.
T-Shirt Transfers
Greeting Cards
Get the most out of your Canon Creative or other card making software
with Canon Greeting Cards. These cards give your unique, personalized
cards the look and feel of professional cards. You can create cards,
invitations, announcements, and more.
Glossy Photo Cards
Use Canon’s Glossy Photo Card media when creating greeting cards and
other fun items that you want to fill the entire card. These cards are the
same stock as Canon’s Glossy Photo Paper and have perforations around
the printable area. You can print beyond the perforation and then tear
off the margins; this allows you to fill the entire card with an image or
color.
Bubble Jet Paper (water resistant)
The Canon Bubble Jet Paper has been developed for high quality
printing with minimal or no smearing or running when in contact with
water or damp surfaces, making it a good choice for damp or rainy
environments. The paper is specially coated and printable on both sides.
(In your printer driver, select Plain Paper when you load this paper.)

Use Canon’s popular T-Shirt Transfers to create and personalize T-shirts,
sweatshirts, aprons, tablecloths, napkins, tote bags, and anything else
your imagination allows! Use on any cotton or cotton/poly blend fabric.
Your image is printed in mirror image (when you select T-Shirt Transfer
for your Media Type in the BJC-1000 Series Printer Driver) so when you
iron it onto the T-shirt the image is viewed correctly.
Fabric Sheets
Use Fabric Sheets for Canon Bubble Jet printers to print pillow covers,
scarves, flags, and other textile items. Use these sheets for appliqués and
other craft and sewing projects. Fabric sheets are 9.5 × 14 inches.
Transparencies
Canon Transparencies are recommended. These transparencies produce
excellent contrast, sharpness, and color.
Back Print Film
Canon Back Print Film has been specially developed for Canon Color
Bubble Jet printers. The film is designed to deliver brilliant, highintensity color images suitable for business presentations, design work,
or professional reports. Back print film is printed on the back (nonglossy) side of the film in mirror image and then viewed from the front
or glossy side using a backlighting device. Be sure to select Back Print
Film as your Media Type in the printer driver.
High Gloss Film
The Canon High Gloss Film features a bright white finish that lends
striking visual power to charts, graphs, and photographic images. Use
this film to make your presentation materials and graphics look
professional.

If you are printing in an application outside Windows, your software

Chapter 3
Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, please remember the following:
❍ Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can
cause paper jams and poor print quality.
❍ Use cut-sheet or banner paper only. You cannot use multipart paper.
❍ Whenever possible, hold the paper by the edges and avoid touching
the print side. Any scratching or soiling of the print side will
adversely affect the print quality.
❍ When storing paper, put the paper back in its original package and
avoid locations that are exposed to direct sunlight or that are subject
to high temperatures or humidity. To avoid bending or wrinkling
the paper, store the package on a flat surface.
❍ When using graph paper, the lines may not match because the
1/6-inch line spacing of the printer is slightly less than that of
graph paper. Adjust the line spacing in your application.
❍ If the print density of your page is very high, light paper stock may
curl slightly due to the large amount of ink. If you need to print
dense graphics, try printing on thicker paper.
❍ Do not use thicker paper than meets the specifications for this
printer. Printing with a paper that is thick enough to come in
contact with the print head nozzles may damage the BJ cartridge.
Chapter 3
Paper Handling

❍ After printing, do not touch the print side until the ink is dry. If
water gets on the printed media, do not touch the print side until
the media is dry.

You can stack approximately 20 sheets of transparency film or 10 glossy
photo cards in the sheet feeder. However, these special media may not
advance correctly under unusual environmental conditions (such as
extreme temperatures or humidity). If you have trouble with special
papers becoming skewed or feeding multiple sheets, do not stack them

Auto Feed Guidelines
When automatically feeding stacks of paper, follow these guidelines:
❍ Do not open the front cover while printing. This will cause
the printer to pause and may cause paper jams, smudges, or
malfunctions.
❍ Do not leave paper stacked in the printer for long periods of time;
longer sheets of paper may become bent or curled over time. This
may cause the paper to misfeed or jam.
❍ Depending on the density of your printed pages, or if your printed
page contains lots of graphics, the ink may need time to dry. Within
two to three seconds, the ink becomes smudge resistant.
❍ If paper curls after printing, remove it immediately; otherwise, paper
jams may occur.
❍ Make sure there are no gaps between the stack of paper and the
paper guide nor the right edge of the sheet feeder.

Printing on Envelopes
You can stack up to 5 envelopes in the sheet feeder or you can manually

3-15
Paper Handling
❍ When automatically feeding transparencies or back print film,
remove each sheet after it is delivered. Do not allow film sheets to
stack up.
❍ Do not leave the film in the sheet feeder for long periods of time.
Dust and dirt may accumulate on the film resulting in spotty
printing.
❍ To avoid fading, do not expose the printed film to prolonged
sunlight.
❍ Store unused papers and films flat. Do not remove papers from their
protective packaging until you are ready to use them.
❍ Store unused film at temperatures between 59°F to 86°F (15°C to
30°C). The relative humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
Printing and Uncurling Back Print Film
Be sure to print on the back (matte nonglossy) side of the film. Your
data is printed in mirror image so it can be viewed from the front or
glossy side using a back lighting device.
If Back Print Film becomes curled, follow these steps to uncurl it:

Printer Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to avoid damage to your printer and harm to
you or others:
❍ Set the printer on a stable surface. Do not use an angled printer
stand. Avoid setting the printer in direct sunlight.
❍ Keep the front cover closed when printing.
❍ Do not set anything on top of the printer.
❍ Do not unplug the printer unnecessarily. If you will not be using the
printer for an extended period, unplug the power cord from the
power outlet.
❍ When you unplug the power cord, grasp the plug itself. Do not pull
on the cord.
❍ Do not unplug the printer when it is printing. This may prevent the
print head unit from returning to the home position on the right and
being capped, which may cause the print head to dry out. This is
critical. If left uncapped, the print head unit may clog and may need
to be replaced.
❍ Do not move the mechanism that holds the BJ cartridge. Attempting
to move the BJ cartridge holder may damage delicate mechanical
parts. (When you open the front cover, the cartridge holder
automatically moves to the center of the printer.)

❍ Do not place the printer too close to a fluorescent lamp. Allow at
least six inches (15 cm) clearance between the printer and any
fluorescent lamp. Fluorescent lamps generate electrical noise that
may cause printer malfunctions.
Cleaning the Printer
Your printer requires little routine maintenance. Perform the following
maintenance, as necessary, to keep your printer in good operating
condition.
C
❍ Do not clean the exterior of the printer with volatile liquids such as
thinners, benzene, or any spray-type or chemical cleaners; doing so
will damage the surface of the printer.
❍ When cleaning the printer, avoid the area near the print head on the
BJ cartridge. Do not touch the print head. Ink may leak out and
cause stains.
❍ To avoid personal injury, always unplug the printer before
cleaning it.

BJ Cartridge Guidelines
You can use these cartridges with the printer:
❍ BC-02 Black BJ Cartridge
Use this cartridge for high-speed, black ink only printing.
❍ BC-05 Color BJ Cartridge
Use this cartridge for all your color printing needs.
❍ BC-06 Photo BJ Cartridge
Use this cartridge for photo quality color printing.
❍ BC-09F Neon BJ Cartridge
Use this cartridge to add bright, fluorescent colors to your images.
Each of these BJ cartridges contains the print head and ink. (The color
cartridges have three ink chambers: cyan, magenta, and yellow.) When
you run out of ink, simply replace the entire BJ cartridge.
BC-02 BLACK
BC-05 COLOR
BC-06 PHOTO
BC-09F NEON
The actual amount of ink that you use will vary depending on the print
density of a page. If the majority of your output is graphics, you may
need to change cartridges more often than when you are printing text
only. See Appendix A, Specifications, for details on the life expectancy of
the BJ cartridges.
4-8
Maintaining the Printer
Chapter 4
You may need to replace the BJ cartridge when any of the following
conditions exist:
❍ You have been using the cartridge for over one year.
❍ Your printed output is not crisp and clear, and there are gaps in the
characters (missing dots) even after you have cleaned the print head
at least five times.
❍ Your output has no ink on it.
N
Canon has more engineers dedicated to creating quality ink for providing
the best results for output on Bubble Jet printers than any other
organization. Canon does not prohibit the use of third-party inks and the
use of third-party inks does not invalidate the product’s limited warranty.
However, Canon cannot guarantee the quality or performance of your
printer when you are using inks from other suppliers.
Canon’s limited warranty does not cover damage caused to Canon’s
Bubble Jet products that is attributable to the use of third party parts or
supplies, including inks. The limited warranty remains in effect for its
life once that particular damage has been properly repaired.
For optimum printing results, Canon recommends that you use only
Canon BJ cartridges and Canon BJ tanks.
The most important thing you can do to extend the life of your printer
and to ensure optimum print quality is take care of the BJ cartridges.

Maintaining the BJ Cartridges
❍ Do not vigorously shake the cartridge while handling it.
❍ If you are using both the BC-05 Color BJ Cartridge and any other
BJ cartridge, make sure you store the cartridge not being used in the
Ink Cartridge Storage Box.
❍ Keep BJ cartridges in their sealed containers until you are ready to
use them.
❍ If spilled, the ink is difficult to remove. Therefore, it’s a good idea to
keep the BJ cartridges and BJ tanks out of the reach of children.
❍ Do not touch the print head area on the BJ cartridge. Ink may leak
out and cause stains.

Troubleshooting
The color reproduction methods used by monitors differ from those used by printers.
In addition, the printed color tones may not perfectly match those on the monitor
because the colors vary depending on the circumstances in which the monitor is
viewed and the monitor’s color calibration settings. For example, objects that appear
blue on the screen are printed purple, and objects that appear pale green on the screen
are printed dark green. However, if the differences are extreme, check the items below.
Printed pages curled/warped/wrinkled

Glossary G
Automatic feed
Refers to one way in which paper can be fed into the printer when the
sheet feeder is used.
BJ cartridge
The printing mechanism that contains the print head unit and ink.
Bubble Jet printer
An ink-jet type printer that heats the ink to a boiling point in a nozzle to
form a bubble. When the bubble expands, there is no room left in the
nozzle for the ink and the ink is projected onto paper.
CMYK
Composite black
The black color formed by mixing cyan, magenta, and yellow ink so that
they appear almost black on a printout.
cpi
Characters per inch. A unit of measurement relevant to a fixed-space
font. Because all characters have the same width, you can calculate the
number of characters printed per inch.
cpl
Characters per line. A unit of measurement that indicates the number of
characters printed per line.
cps
Characters per second. A unit of measurement that indicates the
printer’s speed.
dB(A)
Stands for decibel level (a decibel being a unit of measurement for the
intensity of the sound coming from the printer), adjusted for
background noise.
Glossary
G-1
Glossary
Acronym for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black; the four colors used in
the standard color model of the printing industry. Refers to a method of
specifying color using CMYK color values. (K is used for black because
B is used to represent blue in RGB.)
dpi
Dots per inch. A unit of measurement for indicating a printer’s
resolution. Your printer can produce a resolution up to 720 × 360 dpi.
Font
A complete set of characters of the same size and style; a particular
implementation of a typeface. For example, 12-point, Courier bold.
Form feed
A printer function that automatically ejects the current page and
advances the printer to the top of the next page.
Grayscale
Representing color in black and white as a result of different intensities
of color. Different colors and intensities of colors appear as different
shades of gray.
Halftone
Using this method, the printer produces shades of gray or of colors by
mapping dots to be printed. For color printing, different colored dots of
ink are placed closely together to create illusions of other colors.
Hue
A color in the color spectrum. Examples are red, green, and violet.
Ink Cartridge Storage Box
A box for storing a BJ cartridge. A BJ cartridge removed from the printer
must be stored inside this storage box to prevent the print head of the
cartridge from drying and clogging.
Intensity
The amount of color. More intense or more saturated colors are more
pure. Less intense or less saturated colors are less vivid.
Interface
The connection between two devices that makes it possible for them to
communicate with each other. This printer features a parallel interface,
which makes it compatible with IBM and similar personal computers.
Landscape orientation
Refers to printing across the length of the page (as opposed to portrait
orientation printing across the width of the page). The term landscape is
derived from pictures of the landscape, which are usually horizontal in
format.
lpi
Lines per inch. The measurement used in describing the number of lines
that will print within one vertical inch. Most printing is done in 6 or 8 lpi.
G-2
Glossary
Manual feed
A method of feeding paper to the printer one sheet at a time.
Noise level
See dB(A).
Page orientation
Refers to the direction of print on the page. Printing across the width of
a page is called portrait orientation. Printing across the length of a page
is called landscape orientation.
Paper thickness lever
The green lever located inside the printer, which you adjust as necessary
to accommodate different BJ Cartridges, paper thicknesses, and graphics
densities.
Parallel interface
An interface that transmits multiple bits simultaneously (usually in onebyte segments). Your printer has a built-in, Centronics-type parallel
interface with bidirectional capability. See also Interface.
Pitch
Platen
Printer component that holds the paper in position during ink transfer.
Point size
Character height is defined in points; one point is 1/72 inch. For
instance, this text is printed using a 10-point font.
Portrait orientation
Refers to printing across the width of the page (letter style). This is the
opposite of landscape orientation, which is printing across the length of
the page.
Print head
The printing mechanism that contains print nozzles and ejects the ink
for printing.
Print head capping
An automatic protection function that prevents the print head unit and
ink cartridges from drying out or becoming clogged with dust.
Glossary
G-3
Glossary
Refers to the number of characters per inch that can be composed using
a fixed space font.
Printable area
The area of a sheet of paper on which a printer can reproduce text or
graphics (the printing area is smaller than the paper). On this printer,
the printing area varies depending on the type of paper being used.
Printer driver
Software that sends printing instructions to a printer. The printer driver
keeps track of the attributes of a printer and the codes the program
must send to access those attributes.
RAM
Random Access Memory. Printer memory that is used for temporary
storage of information you want to print and downloaded fonts.
Resolution
The density of dots for any given output device. Expressed in terms of
dots per inch (dpi). Low resolution causes font characters and graphics
to have a jagged appearance. Higher resolution means smoother curves
and angles as well as a better match to traditional typeface designs.
Resolution values are represented by horizontal data and vertical data,
for example, 360 × 360 dpi. This printer can produce output with
resolutions up to 720 × 360 dpi precision.
RGB
An acronym for Red, Green, and Blue; the three primary colors used in
the additive process to form a wide spectrum of colors.
Smoothing mode
A printer mode that refines your printout by polishing away jagged
edges and ragged stair-stepping curves of characters and graphics.
Subtractive colors
The three primary colors (cyan, yellow, and magenta); when combined
through a subtractive process give a spectrum of colors.
True black
Contrary to composite black, true black color on a printout is obtained
with the use of black ink.
TrueType font
The scalable font technology built into Microsoft Windows 3.1. It offers
you the same font images both on computer displays and printer
outputs.
