edited, printed or sent as a fax or email.
Photo scans an image, and sends it to an image processing application.
My MultiPASS accesses the My MultiPASS folders, from which saved
files can be viewed, edited, printed or sent as a fax or email.

Working with Faxes Stored in Memory
Printing and Deleting Documents in Memory
The F50 MFP can store up to 30 document transactions or 270* pages in
memory. If there are no documents stored in memory when Memory Reference
is accessed, then the F50 MFP will return to standby mode.
A stored document can be printed for review or deleted from memory.
A document is stored in memory when:
•
The document is scanned for memory-sending or delayed-sending, and has
not yet been sent.
•
The document is scanned for sequential sending.
•
The MultiPASS Toolbar has been set to automatically upload faxes to the PC
and a fax comes in when the PC is off. In this case, the fax will stay in the
F50 MFP’s memory until the PC is turned on again. The fax will then
automatically upload to the PC and be deleted from memory.
•
A fax is received when the F50 MFP is being used for other tasks, or cannot
print due to an error (such as paper not loaded). Once the F50 MFP is again
able to print, pressing the RESUME button will automatically print the
received fax then delete it from memory.
When memory is full, the operations described above cannot be performed.

Controlling Fax Appearance and Quality
There are several settings you can control to change or improve the appearance
of your faxed documents.
Sending a Color Fax
Your F50 MFP can send color faxes to other fax machines with color capability.
The default fax transmission is black and white, so before sending a color fax,
the color setting must be selected.
If you try to send a color fax to a fax machine that does not support color, you
may receive an error message. Should this occur, see “Cannot Send a Fax” page
71 for the remedy.

light off.
When the transmission is complete (or canceled) the F50 MFP will revert to B&W
mode.
Setting Contrast and Resolution
When a document is placed into the F50 MFP for faxing, it is first scanned. There
are two settings that affect the quality of the scanned (and faxed) document:
Contrast
The degree of difference between light and dark. A higher
contrast setting will make blacks darker and whites brighter,
while a lower contrast setting will make the differences
between black and white less distinguished.
Resolution
Controls the fineness or clarity of a printout. Low resolutions
may cause text and graphics to have a jagged appearance,
while higher resolutions provide smoother curves and lines,
crisp text and graphics, and a better match to traditional
typeface designs.

How to Print
Using your F50 MFP with your PC lets you print basic business documents in
B&W or color on a variety of specialty media. For a full list of Canon specialty
media that can be used with your F50 MFP, see the inside back cover of this
manual.
A printer driver is a software program that acts as an interface between your
computer and your printer and allows you to print from any application that
supports printing in Windows. The Canon F50 MFP printer driver also provides
other features, such as monitoring the F50 MFP's paper supply and ink levels.
Menus vary between applications. Consult your user manual if
recommended procedures for accessing the printing feature within
an application do not match your application.
To access the printer driver dialog box:
From an application File menu, select Print. With Canon MultiPASS F50
Printer as the selected printer, click Properties. The Properties window will
open to the Main tab.

How to Print
Improving Printed Images
Two important factors control the quality and output of your printed images:
Paper and Ink
Using recommended paper or specialty media for printing
graphic images or photographs can significantly improve
print quality. Also, always use the specific Canon inks for
your F50 MFP printer, as noted on the inside back cover.
Driver Settings
There are a variety of printer driver settings you can use to
enhance the quality of the print, the colors and the way in
which the document comes out of the printer. These settings
can be adjusted from the printer driver interface, or in some
instances, directly from the MultiPASS Toolbar.
Adjusting Print Quality
Two features that affect the appearance and quality of your printed documents
can be controlled with the printer driver.
Media Type
The F50 MFP automatically adjusts printer settings to
improve print quality based on the media type (plain paper,
Glossy Photo Paper, etc.) you select.
Print Quality
When you select a media type, print quality is automatically
set for that media. You can override these settings if desired.

Scanning From Within an Application
Most image processing applications use the TWAIN driver standard for
scanning. Much in the same way your printer driver allows your PC to
communicate with your printer, a TWAIN driver makes it possible to send a
scanned document from a scanner to your application.
When your F50 MFP is connected to your PC and the software is loaded, you
can scan a document from the F50 MFP in most image processing applications.
This is usually done from the File menu, using either an Import or Acquire menu
option. Refer to the documentation for your image processing application, if
needed, for the exact procedure to access the scanner from within the
application.
To scan from an application:
1
Load document
To load a document in the ADF:
•
Lift the document cover to make sure
there are no documents on the glass.
•
Insert the document(s) in the ADF tray as
shown, facing up.
•
Adjust the document guide tabs as needed.
The F50 MFP will feed the top page first.
You can load up to 30 letter- or legal-size pages of 20 lb. paper in the ADF at one
time.
If a paper jam occurs, See “Clearing Paper Jams
in the ADF” on page 50.
To load document on platen glass:
•
2
Place document face down on the platen
glass.
Acquire image
From your image processing application, select Canon MultiPASS F50
Scanner as the TWAIN SOURCE if not already selected. Access the scanner
software to acquire the image.

How to Maintain Your F50 MFP
Routine maintenance for your F50 MFP includes keeping your unit clean,
changing the ink tanks as needed and maintaining the printhead.
Cleaning Your F50 MFP
Clean your F50 MFP periodically with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to maintain
image quality, and to keep the unit free of dust and debris.
When ink runs out in an ink tank, an INK EMPTY message will appear in the LCD
panel. The message will also specify which tank is empty: C for cyan, M for
magenta, Y for yellow or K for black.
To replace an empty ink tank:
1
Open unit
Press the Open button to open the scanning
unit. The printhead holder automatically moves
to the center.
Do not force the printhead holder
or damage could result!
2
Remove empty ink tank
Press the tab on the front of the empty tank,
then remove and discard.
3
Prepare new ink tank
Take the new ink tank from its package and
remove the protective wrap and cap.

Handle ink tanks carefully so that ink does not spill. Never
squeeze the sides of an ink tank.

Install new ink tank
Gently insert the ink tank and press down until it clicks into place. Do not
force an ink tank into the printhead. If the ink tank does not go in smoothly,
reseat it, then try again.
Press the scanning unit closed until it clicks securely into place.
Maintaining the Printhead
Routine printhead maintenance can extend the life of your F50 MFP printhead.
Printing a Nozzle Check Pattern
The printhead discharges ink through nozzles—tiny openings from which the ink
is sprayed. If faded or streaked colors and text appear on your output, some of
the nozzles may be clogged. You can check this by printing a nozzle check pattern.
Ensure that paper is loaded in the F50 MFP before performing a nozzle check.
To print a nozzle check pattern from the F50 MFP control panel:

printhead. See “Cleaning the
Printhead” below.
If patterns are not uniformly solid,
align the printhead. See “Aligning the
Printhead” on the next page.
Cleaning the Printhead
If the printed nozzle check pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not
printed, the printhead needs to be cleaned. Perform normal printhead cleaning
first, then perform a deep printhead cleaning only if normal cleaning does not
provide the desired result.
How to Maintain Your F50 MFP
Cleaning the printhead consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink
unnecessarily.

Power Supply
Do not damage or modify the power cord and power plug. Also, do not place heavy objects on
the power cord, pull on it, or extensively bend it. These actions may cause electrical damage
and result in a fire or electrical shock.
Do not insert or unplug the power plug with wet hands, as this may result in electrical shock.
During electrical storms, turn off the power and disconnect the power cord from the power
outlet. (Please note that any documents stored in the F50 MFP’s memory will be deleted when
you turn off the power.)
If dust accumulates around the plug of the power cord when it is connected to a power outlet,
unplug the F50 MFP and wipe the plug with a clean, dry cloth.
For using the F50 model, do not plug the F50 MFP into the same circuit with appliances such as
an air conditioner, television, or copier. These devices generate an electrical noise, which may
interfere with your F50 MFP’s ability to operate.
Whenever you turn off the power and unplug the F50 MFP, wait at least five seconds before you
plug it in again.
Plug the F50 MFP into a standard 120V AC/60Hz, three-prong grounded outlet. Operate the F50 MFP only from
the type of power source indicated on the F50 MFP’s label. If you are not sure of the type of power available,
consult your local power company.
Use only the power cord that came with the F50 MFP.
Turn off the power and unplug the F50 MFP in the following conditions:
•
When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
•
If liquid has spilled into the F50 MFP.
•
If the F50 MFP has been exposed to rain or water.
•
If the F50 MFP does not operate normally when you have followed the instructions in the guides included
with your F50 MFP. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the instructions in the guides since
improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the product to normal operation.
•
If the F50 MFP has been dropped or damaged.
•
If the F50 MFP exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for servicing.
Handling
Do not drop paper clips, staples, or other metal objects inside F50 MFP. Also do not spill water,
liquid or inflammable substances inside F50 MFP. If these items come into contact with highvoltage parts inside F50 MFP, it may result in a fire or electrical shock. If these items are
dropped or spilled in F50 MFP, turn off the power and unplug the power cord immediately with
dry hands. Then, contact the Canon Customer Care Center.
Do not use any highly flammable spray near F50 MFP. If gas from a spray comes into contact
with the electrical components inside F50 MFP, it will result in a fire.
Close the ADF, the platen glass cover, or the scanning unit gently to avoid catching your hand.
Failing to do so may result in personal injury.
•
84
Do not press down hard on the ADF or the platen glass cover when using the platen glass to scan thick
books. This may damage the platen glass and/or result in personal injury.

•
Do not fix your eyes on the luminous source while making copies and scanning, as this may result in
personal injury.
•
Do not subject F50 MFP to strong physical shock or vibration.
•
Turn off the power and unplug F50 MFP before moving it.
•
Do not lift F50 MFP by any of its attachments.
•
If F50 MFP exhibits a distinct change in performance, this indicates a need for servicing.
Maintenance
Do not service F50 MFP yourself except as specifically described in this guide. If further
servicing is required, contact the Canon Customer Care Center.
•
Keep the F50 MFP clean. Dust accumulation may prevent F50 MFP from operating properly.
Printhead and Ink Tanks
For safety, always store printhead and ink tanks out of the reach of small children. If a child
accidentally licks or ingests any ink, consult a physician immediately.
Never subject a printhead or ink tank to shocks or excessive vibration. Shaking could cause ink
to leak and stain clothing.
Never touch the printhead or electrical contacts on a printhead immediately after removing it
from the F50 MFP. These metal parts become very hot during printing and could cause minor
burns.
Turning the F50 MFP Off
To avoid equipment malfunction always use the ON/OFF button to turn the F50 MFP on and off. Never remove
the power cord from the power outlet until you have turned off the F50 MFP by pressing the ON/OFF button.
Once off, you can unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Using the F50 MFP Near Appliances and Fluorescent Lamps
Allow at least 6 inches clearance between the F50 MFP and another appliance or a fluorescent lamp. Electrical
noise generated by a fluorescent lamp placed too close to the F50 MFP could cause the F50 MFP to
malfunction.

Limited Warranty—U.S. Only
The limited warranty set forth below is given by Canon U.S.A., Inc. (“Canon”) with respect to the Canon brand
computer peripheral product (the “product”) that you have purchased, when purchased and used in the United
States. The product that you have purchased is the only product to which this warranty card and the limited
warranty provided by Canon and stated on the card apply.
Your product, when delivered to you in new condition in its original container, is warranted against defects in
materials or workmanship as follows: for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase, defective
parts or a defective product returned to a Canon repair facility or a Canon Authorized Service Facility (“ASF”)
for such product, as applicable, and proven to be defective upon inspection, will be exchanged for new or
comparable rebuilt parts, or a refurbished product, as determined by the Canon repair facility or the ASF.
Warranty repair or replacement shall not extend the original warranty period of the defective product. This
limited warranty does not cover any supplies or accessories, including without limitation, ink tanks, 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 computer
equipment and compatible software, as to which items Canon shall have no responsibility.
Non-Canon brand equipment and software that may be distributed with the product are sold “as is,” without
warranty of any kind by Canon, 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 nonCanon 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:
(b) Use of parts or supplies (other than those sold by Canon) 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 altered or removed.
NO IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, APPLIES TO THE PRODUCT AFTER THE APPLICABLE PERIOD OF THE EXPRESS LIMITED
WARRANTY STATED ABOVE, AND NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY OR GUARANTY, EXCEPT AS MENTIONED ABOVE,
GIVEN BY ANY PERSON OR ENTITY WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCT SHALL BIND CANON. (SOME STATES DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY
TO YOU.) CANON SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF REVENUES OR PROFITS, INCONVENIENCE, EXPENSE FOR
SUBSTITUTE EQUIPMENT OR SERVICE, STORAGE CHARGES, LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA, OR ANY OTHER
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE USE OR MISUSE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE
89

THE PRODUCT, REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY ON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED, AND EVEN IF CANON HAS
BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL RECOVERY OF ANY KIND AGAINST
CANON BE GREATER IN AMOUNT THAN THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT SOLD BY CANON WHICH CAUSED
THE ALLEGED DAMAGE.
WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU ASSUME ALL RISK AND LIABILITY FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY TO
YOU AND YOUR PROPERTY AND TO OTHERS AND THEIR PROPERTY ARISING OUT OF USE OR MISUSE OF, OR
INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT NOT CAUSED DIRECTLY BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF CANON. (SOME STATES DO NOT
ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.) THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL NOT EXTEND TO ANYONE
OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF THE PRODUCT, OR THE PERSON FOR WHOM IT WAS PURCHASED AS
A GIFT, AND STATES YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.
Canon offers a full range of customer technical support* options:
For email technical support, the latest driver downloads and answers to frequently asked questions
(www.usa.canon.com/consumer)
24-hour, 7-day-a-week, automated support for troubleshooting issues on most current products (800-423-2366)
24-hour, Fax-On-Demand System for product specifications and technical information (800-526-4345)
Free technical support Monday—Saturday (excluding holidays) for products still under warranty (757-413-2848)
Technical support 7 days a week (excluding holidays) for products no longer under warranty, at $9.99 per call
(757-413-2848)
If the problem can’t be corrected by using one of the above technical support options, you will be asked to
follow the applicable procedures for warranty service. Note that a dated proof of purchase (bill of sale) is
required to verify eligibility at the time of service. This requirement will be satisfied by providing a copy of your
dated bill of sale. You will also need to supply the product serial number.
Carry-In/Mail-In
Carry-In/Mail-In is a service program by which your defective product is repaired by an ASF. The name and
telephone number of the ASF(s) nearest to your location may be obtained from our Web site at:
www.usa.canon.com/consumer, or by calling the Canon Customer Care Center at 1-800-423-2366. If shipping
is involved, it is your responsibility to properly package and send your defective product, together with your
dated proof of purchase, a complete explanation of the problem and a return address, to the ASF at your
expense. Do not include any other items with your product. The repair(s) covered by this limited warranty will
be made and the product will be returned to you without charge by the ASF. Repairs not covered under this
limited warranty will be charged to you at such costs as each ASF may generally establish from time to time.
InstantExchange†
InstantExchange is a warranty program that expedites, usually by the next business day††, the exchange of a
defective product with a refurbished product. The refurbished product you receive will be covered by the
balance of the period remaining on your original limited warranty. Note that by using this service you will keep
the replacement product that is sent to you, and your originally purchased product shall become the property
of Canon. InstantExchange warranty program service is available only during the express limited-warranty
period for your product and only in the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii during such period.
If the Canon Customer Care Center representative cannot correct the problem with your product over the
telephone, and you elect InstantExchange warranty program service, the representative will issue you a
reference number upon verification of warranty eligibility. You will be asked for information pertaining to your
defective product and for a ship-to location for the replacement product (street address only). You must also
provide a major credit card number that will be pre-authorized by Canon in an amount up to the cost of a new
product at the time you elect InstantExchange warranty program service. Your credit card number will be
charged in an amount up to the cost of a new product (i) if you do not return your defective product to a Canon
repair facility by the date specified by Canon and in the manner described below; (ii) if the defect(s) in the
product is/are not covered by this limited warranty; or (iii) if the warranty period on the product has expired or
has not been sufficiently established by your supplying the appropriate documentation.

The Canon repair facility will ship out the replacement product via overnight courier, prepaid by Canon. After
receipt of the replacement product (with instructions and a pre-paid return waybill), follow the instructions to
ship the defective product to a Canon repair facility. You must return the defective product in the shipping
carton in which the replacement product was packed (be sure to retain your printhead and ink tanks), and you
must include the reference number, a copy of your dated proof of purchase (bill of sale) and a complete
explanation of the problem. Do not include any other items in the return shipping container.
This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to
state.
*
Support program specifics are subject to change without notice.
InstantExchange warranty program service is subject to availability of refurbished replacement units.
††
9 a.m.–5 p.m. (local), Monday–Friday (excluding holidays). The Canon Customer Care Center must receive pertinent
information by 3 p.m. (E.S.T.) to ensure next-business-day InstantExchange warranty program service (two-business-day
InstantExchange warranty service for Alaska and Hawaii). Canon does not guarantee next-business-day service in the
event of factors beyond Canon’s reasonable control.
