power strip. If extension cords must be used or plugged to a multiple power strip,
however, use them observing the following points on user's own authority. If you use
extension cords improperly, this may result in a fire or electrical shock.
- Do not connect one extension cord to another.
- Make sure that the voltage of the power plug is the one indicated in the rating label
(attached on the inside of the printer) when you use the printer.
- Use an extension cord that allows the current value greater than the necessary one
indicated in the rating label (attached on the inside of the printer).
- When you use an extension cord, untie the cord binding, and insert the power plug
completely into the extension cord outlet to ensure a firm connection between the
power cord and the extension cord.
- Periodically check that the extension cord is not overheated.
CAUTION
• Do not use power supplies with voltages other than those specified herein, as this
may result in a fire or electrical shock.
• Always grasp the plug when unplugging the power cord. Pulling on the power cord
may expose or snap the core wire, or otherwise damage the power cord. If the power
cord is damaged, this could cause current to leak, resulting in a fire or electrical
shock.
• Leave sufficient space around the power plug so that it can be unplugged easily. If
objects are placed around the power plug, you will be unable to unplug it in an
emergency.
xviii
Handling
WARNING
• Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the printer. There are high-temperature and
high-voltage components inside the printer which may result in a fire or electrical
shock.
• Electrical equipment can be hazardous if not used properly. To avoid injury, do not
allow children access to the interior of any electrical product and do not let them
touch any electrical contacts or gears that are exposed.
• If the printer makes strange noises, or emits smoke, heat or unusual smells,
immediately turn OFF the power switch, and disconnect the USB cable if it is
connected. Then, unplug the power plug from the AC power outlet and contact your
local authorized Canon dealer. Otherwise, this may result in a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not use highly flammable sprays near the printer. If gas from these sprays comes
into contact with the electrical components inside the printer, it may result in a fire or
electrical shock.
• Always turn OFF the power switch, and disconnect the interface cables when moving
the printer. Otherwise, the power cord or interface cables may be damaged, resulting
in a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not drop paper clips, staples, or other metal objects inside the printer. Also, do
not spill water, liquids, or flammable substances (alcohol, benzene, paint thinner,
etc.) inside the printer. If these items come into contact with a high-voltage area
inside the printer, it may result in a fire or electrical shock. If these items are dropped
or slipped inside the printer, immediately turn OFF the power switch and disconnect
the USB cable if it is connected. Then, unplug the power plug from the AC power
outlet and contact your local authorized Canon dealer.
• When plugging or unplugging the USB cable when the power plug is plugged in an
AC power outlet, do not touch the metal part of the connector, as this may result in
electrical shock.
CAUTION
• Do not place heavy objects on the printer, as they may tip over or fall resulting in
personal injury.
• Be careful when handling the expansion board. Touching the edges or a sharp
portion of the expansion board may result in personal injury.
• Turn OFF the power switch for safety when the printer will not be used for a long
period of time such as overnight. Also, turn OFF the power switch on the right of the
printer and unplug the power plug for safety when the printer will not be used for an
extended period of time such as during consecutive holidays.
• The laser beam can be harmful to human bodies. Since radiation emitted inside the
printer is completely confined within protective housings and external covers, the
laser beam cannot escape from the printer during any phase of user operation. Read
the following remarks and instructions for safety.
- Never open covers other than those instructed in this manual.
xix
- Do not remove the caution label attached to the cover of the laser scanner unit.
- If the laser beam escapes from the printer, exposure may cause serious damage to
your eyes.
Maintenance and Inspections
WARNING
• When cleaning the printer, turn OFF the main power switch, remove the USB cable,
and then unplug the power plug. Failure to observe these steps may result in a fire or
electrical shock.
• Unplug the power plug from the AC power outlet regularly, and clean the area around
the base of the power plug's metal pins and the AC power outlet with a dry cloth to
ensure that all dust and grime is removed. If the power plug is plugged for a long
period of time in a damp, dusty, or smoky location, dust can build up around the
power plug and become damp. This may cause a short circuit and result in a fire.
• Clean the printer using a slightly dampened cloth with water or a mild detergent
diluted with water. Do not use alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other flammable
substances. If flammable substances come into contact with electrical parts inside
the printer, it may result in a fire or electrical shock.
• There are some areas inside the printer which are subject to high-voltages. When
removing jammed paper or when inspecting the inside of the printer, do not allow
necklaces, bracelets, or other metal objects to touch the inside of the printer, as this
may result in burns or electrical shock.
• Do not throw a used toner cartridge into open flames, as this may cause the toner
remaining inside the cartridge to ignite, resulting in burns or a fire.
CAUTION
• Never attempt to service this printer yourself, except as explained in this manual.
There are no user serviceable parts inside the printer. Adjust only those controls that
are covered in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment could result in
personal injury and/or damage requiring extensive repair that may not be covered
under your Limited Warranty.
xx
• The fixing unit and its surroundings inside the printer become hot during use. When
removing jammed paper or when inspecting the inside of the printer, do not touch the
fixing unit and its surroundings, as doing so may result in burns or electrical shock.
• When removing jammed paper or replacing the toner cartridge, take care not to allow
the toner to come into contact with your hands or clothing, as this will dirty your
hands or clothing. If they become dirty, wash them immediately with cold water.
Washing with warm water will set the toner and make it impossible to remove the
toner stains.
• When removing paper jammed inside the printer, remove the jammed paper gently to
prevent the toner on the paper from scattering and getting into your eyes or mouth. If
the toner gets into your eyes or mouth, wash them immediately with cold water and
immediately consult a physician.
• When loading paper or removing jammed paper, take care not to cut your hands with
the edges of the paper.
• When removing a used toner cartridge from the toner cartridge slot, remove the
cartridge carefully to prevent the toner from scattering and getting into your eyes or
mouth. If the toner enters your eyes or mouth, wash them immediately with cold
water and immediately consult a physician.
Consumables
WARNING
• Do not throw a used toner cartridge into open flames, as this may cause toner
remaining inside the cartridge to ignite and result in burns or a fire.
• Do not store a toner cartridge or copy paper in places exposed to open flames, as
this may cause the toner or paper to ignite and result in burns or a fire.
CAUTION
Keep toner cartridges and other consumables out of the reach of small children. If
these items are ingested, consult a physician immediately.
Others
WARNING
The toner cartridge generates a low level magnetic field. If you have a cardiac
pacemaker and feel abnormalities, please move away from the toner cartridge and

Features and Benefits
This section describes the major features.
1
Before You Start
■ High Performance Printing System "CAPT"
LBP3300 is equipped with the latest high performance printing system, "CAPT" (Canon
Advanced Printing Technology), that is compatible with Windows operating systems. As
this system allows data to be batch processed by a computer instead of a printer, it
enables high-speed printing, making full use of the features of the computer. Also, a large
amount of data can be processed without expanding the printer memory.
■ USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Installed as Standard
LBP3300 achieves high-speed transmission by supporting Hi-Speed I/F USB 2.0 that
offers up to 480 Mbps transmission speeds.
■ High Speed Printing and Super High Quality Printing
Delivers a high printing speed of 21 pages per minute. Relieves the stress of waiting for a
print job to finish. This printer is fitted with a 600 dpi laser printer engine. A stunningly high
resolution of 2400 dpi equivalent x 600 dpi is made possible through the new AIR
(Automatic Image Refinement) which is unique to Canon. Furthermore, because the
grayscale makes use of a dithering pattern, photographs and graphics can be printed with
beautifully subtle reproduction.
■ Duplex Unit Installed as Standard
LBP3300 is supplied with the duplex unit. Therefore, you can automatically perform 2sided printing with paper (A4, Legal, and Letter size) loaded in the manual feed slot or
paper cassette. By doing so, you can save paper and make the file space more efficient.
■ Simple Maintenance and Printer Status Window
The toner cartridge made for this printer (Canon Genuine Cartridge) is designed as a
single part containing both toner and the light sensitive drum, so that it can be easily
replaced.
The Printer Status Window that is displayed during printing makes it easy to tell exactly
what the printer is doing through the use of graphical and audio cues, improving the
overall usability of the printer.
■ Low Power Consumption and Quick Startup
By adopting "On-demand Fixing System", LBP3300 achieves low power consumption and
quick startup. This Canon's original technology enables instantaneous heating of the
fusing heater only before printing, saving warm-up time. So, LBP3300 is always in
standby status and ready to print. Also, thanks to its power-saving design, the fixing unit's
power consumption is very low when idle.
1-2
Features and Benefits
■ Supporting Various Types of Media
Supports various types of media including plain paper, heavy paper, envelopes (Envelope
DL, Envelope COM10, Envelope C5, and Envelope Monarch), Index Card, labels, and
transparencies. Although LBP3300 is designed for printing media of A4 size or smaller,
you can print A3 and B4 size data on A4 size paper by using the function to reduce the
standard paper sizes.
You can also print irregular, custom size paper.
LBP3300 can be used as an Ethernet network printer by installing the optional network
board. The network board enables the operation of the printer using a built-in web browser
"Remote UI" allowing you to specify settings and manage the printer from a computer on
the network.
NOTE
For details on the operating systems that support the optional network board and
procedure for setting the board, see "Network Guide".

Storing Paper
The quality of paper may deteriorate if it is stored improperly even when the paper
meets the normal specifications. Inferior paper may cause misfeeds, paper jams, or
deterioration in print quality.
Observe the following guidelines when storing and handling paper:
IMPORTANT
• Store paper away from moisture since paper quality deteriorates in a moist environment.
• Paper wrappers help avoiding moisture and dryness. Keep paper in the wrapper until it is
ready to be used. Store all unused paper in a wrapper.
• Store paper on a flat surface.
• Do not store paper on the floor where water and moisture can accumulate.
• Avoid physical damage to stored paper.
• Do not store paper vertically or store too many stacks of paper in one pile.
• Do not store paper in places exposed to direct sunlight or places with high or low
humidity.
• If the paper storage room and work area differ from each other significantly in
temperature or humidity, keep packed paper stack in the work area for at least one day
prior to printing so that it can adapt to the new environment. When paper is moved to a
location where the temperature or humidity differs significantly, the paper may curl or
become creased.
Storing Printouts
When handling or storing printouts printed by this printer, be careful of the following
points:
IMPORTANT
• Avoid storing printouts with PVC materials such as clear folders. Otherwise toner may
melt and stick to the PVC material.
2-8
Paper Requirements
• Use insoluble adhesive when gluing printouts. Toner may melt when soluble adhesive is
used. Before using the adhesive, test it with paper that is no longer required.
Make sure that the printed paper is completely dry before placing one over another.
Toner may melt if they are placed together half-dried.
• Store paper on a flat surface. Toner may peel when they are folded or creased.
• Avoid storing printouts at high temperatures. Otherwise toner may melt and blot.
• Put printouts in a binder when storing them for a long period of time (two years or longer).
(Printouts may discolor when they are stored for a long period of time.)

Precautions for Handling the Manual Feed Slot or Paper
Cassette
Be careful of the following points when handling the manual feed slot or paper
cassette.
IMPORTANT
• Be sure to turn the printer ON once when loading paper in the paper cassette for the first
time after installing the paper feeder.
• When any paper is in the manual feed slot, you cannot feed paper from the paper
cassette. If you are printing from the paper cassette, remove any paper loaded in the
manual feed slot.
2-12
Paper Source
• Do not pull out the paper cassette while the printer is printing. This may result in paper
jams or damage to the printer.
• Do not touch the paper in the manual feed slot or pull it out during printing. This may
result in a faulty operation.
• Refill the paper cassette after all the loaded paper runs out. If the cassette is refilled
when paper still remains in the cassette, it may result in misfeeds.
• Do not load paper in the manual feed slot during printing from the paper cassette. This
may result in multiple sheets of paper fed at once or paper jams.
• Do not touch the black rubber pad (A) in the paper cassette. This may result in misfeeds.
• Make sure that the printer is not operating and the
(Ready) indicator (green) is on
when loading paper in the manual feed slot. However, when printing multiple copies or
multiple pages from the manual feed slot, make sure that the printer is not operating and
the
(Load Paper) indicator (orange) is blinking before loading the second and
subsequent paper. If paper is loaded in the manual feed slot while the printer is operating
such as when the printer is printing or immediately after outputting paper, the loaded
paper may be output without being printed, or this may result in paper jams.
• If you are printing from Cassette 2, make sure that Cassette 1 is set before printing. If you
print from Cassette 2 when Cassette 1 is not set, this will cause paper jams.

m2). The paper capacity varies depending on the paper size or paper type. For more
details, see "Paper Capacity of the Output Trays," on p. 2-16.
Face-up Output Slot
Printed paper is output to the face-up output slot on the rear of the printer unit with
the printed side facing up. The face-up output slot is suitable to print transparencies,
labels, or envelopes which tend to curl, since the printed paper is output flattened.
IMPORTANT
• Be sure to close the output selection cover before performing automatic 2-sided printing.
• When paper is output to the face-up output slot, take out one piece at a time each time it
is output.

IMPORTANT
• You cannot perform automatic 2-sided printing on heavy paper (121 - 163 g/m2),
transparencies, labels, Index Card, and envelopes.
• During automatic 2-sided printing, do not touch the paper until it is output to the facedown output tray completely. During automatic 2-sided printing, the paper is first output
partially after the front side is printed, and then it is fed again to be printed on the reverse
side.
• Be sure to close the output selection cover before performing automatic 2-sided printing.
NOTE
When the last page for the 2-sided printing is 1-sided printing, the printer prints faster
than normal 2-sided printing by clicking [Finishing Details] in the [Finishing] sheet and
[Advanced Settings] in the [Finishing Details] dialog box, and then selecting the [Print
Last Page in 1-sided Mode when 2-sided Printing is Set] check box in the [Advanced
Settings] dialog box. However, when printing punched paper or previously printed paper,
the orientation or printing surface of the last page may differ from other pages. In this
case, clear the check box.

■ Selecting an Objective (See p. 4-55)
You can select 2-sided printing or booklet printing as well as 1-sided printing as the print
style.
• [2-sided Printing]
Allows you to print 2-page document on the both sides of one sheet of paper.
• [Booklet Printing]
By printing 2 pages on both sides of paper and folding the paper into two, the pages are
aligned properly and ready to be bound into a booklet (Therefore, 4 pages in total are
printed on a single sheet of paper).
For example, when making a booklet of 12 pages, 3 sheets are used in total since 2
pages are printed on each side of paper. To make a booklet, you only have to fold the
printouts into two and bind them. The booklet printing function arranges the page order
so that the pages are aligned properly when they are bound as a booklet.
A booklet can also be made by specifying the number of sheets to be folded into two and
binding the specified amount.

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
This section describes how to replace or handle the toner cartridge and
precautions on storing it.
Contact the store where you purchased the printer to obtain replacement toner
cartridge.
IMPORTANT
A warning message does not appear on your computer even if the toner cartridge is
nearing the end of its life. The case where white streaks appear on printed paper in
longitudinal direction, or printed paper comes out faint or uneven can be used to estimate
when the toner cartridge will need to be replaced. When you are replacing the toner
cartridge, be sure to use a toner cartridge designed for this printer.

Routine Maintenance
NOTE
• The toner cartridge made for this printer (Canon Genuine Cartridge) is provided with two
types of toner cartridges whose lifetimes are different from each other.
• The lifetime of the toner cartridge (Canon Genuine Cartridge) used in this printer is
approximately 2,500 pages or approximately 6,000 pages. The page counts are on the
basis of "ISO/IEC 19752"* when printing A4 size paper with the default print density
setting. The level of toner consumption varies depending on the type of documents
printed. If your average document contains a lot of graphics, tables, or charts, the life of
the toner cartridge will be shorter as they consume more toner.
* "ISO/IEC 19752" is the global standard related to "Method for the determination of toner cartridge yield for
monochromatic electrophotographic printers and multi-function devices that may contain printer
components" issued by ISO (International Organization for Standardization).
• This section describes the procedure for replacing the toner cartridge using the
illustration of the toner cartridge (Canon Genuine Cartridge) of which lifetime is
approximately 2,500 pages.
Before Replacing the Toner Cartridge
Toner cartridges are consumable products. When there is not enough toner, this
may cause the case where white streaks appear on the printed paper in
longitudinal direction, or the printed paper comes out faint or uneven. If this type of
symptom may occur, perform the following procedure before replacing the toner
cartridge. You may be able to print for a while until the toner is used up completely.

WARNING
There are some areas inside the printer which are subject to high-voltages.
When removing jammed paper or when inspecting the inside of the printer, do
not allow necklaces, bracelets, or other metal objects to touch the inside of the
printer, as this may result in burns or electrical shock.
CAUTION
• The fixing unit and its surroundings inside the printer are hot during use. Make
sure the fixing unit is completely cool before removing the jammed paper.
Touching the fixing unit when it is still hot may result in burns.
• When removing jammed paper, take care not to allow the toner to come into
contact with your hands or clothing, as this will dirty your hands or clothing. If
they become dirty, wash them immediately with cold water. Washing with warm
water will set the toner and make it impossible to remove the toner stains.
• When removing paper jammed inside the printer, remove the jammed paper
gently to prevent the toner on the paper from scattering and getting into your
eyes or mouth. If the toner gets into your eyes or mouth, wash them
immediately with cold water and immediately consult a physician.
• When removing jammed paper, take care not to cut your hands with the edges
of the paper.

Paper Jams
IMPORTANT
• Remove jammed paper while the power of the printer is ON. If the power is turned OFF,
the data being printed will be deleted.
• Applying excess force may result in tearing paper or damaging the parts in the printer.
When removing jammed paper, pull out the paper in the most appropriate direction,
judging from the position of the paper.
• If paper is torn, be sure to find and remove any remaining pieces of paper.
• The error message may remain if jammed paper is removed without opening the front
cover. In this case, open and close the front cover once.
• Do not touch the high-voltage contact (A) or the electrical contacts (B) shown in the
