● This printer cannot output paper that is less than 176 mm in length face
down. Always output this type of paper into the sub-output tray (face-up
output).
● Always use the optional duplex unit when you are duplex printing. You cannot
manually duplex print from the paper tray or paper cassette. If you do
manually duplex print (feed in the reverse side of a sheet of paper that you
have printed on) this could lead to poor printing quality.
● If you load Executive-size paper into the paper feeder, leave plenty of space
between the top of the stack and the paper limit guide (→ p. 12). (→ p. 10)

● Plain Paper
You can use plain paper of 76.2-216 mm width, 127-356 mm length and 64-105 g/m2 weight
with this printer. This includes A5-, B5-, A4-, Letter-, Legal- and Executive-size paper. You
can load standard-size plain paper into the paper cassette and 500-sheet paper feeder. Paper of
other sizes should be loaded into the paper tray. Attaching the optional duplex unit allows you
to automatically duplex print on plain paper.
● Thick Paper
You can use thick paper of 76.2-216 mm width, 127-356 mm length and 106-135 g/m2 weight
with this printer. This includes A5-, B5-, A4-, Letter-, Legal- and Executive-size paper. Thick
paper should be loaded into the paper tray.
● Glossy paper
To use glossy paper, use only dedicated Canon GF-2 A4 Color Laser Glossy paper (A4 size).
● GF-2 A4 Glossy paper is designed especially for use with the LBP-2040
printer. Do not use this paper in any other color laser printer or monochrome
printer. Such use may result in printer malfunction or deterioration in picture
quality.
● Transparencies
To use transparencies, use only dedicated Canon TR-1 A4 Color Laser OHP paper (A4 size).
● TR-1 A4 OHP paper is designed especially for use with the LBP-2160, LBP2040 and the LBP-2260. Do not use this paper in any other color laser printer

Canon LASERSHOT LBP-2030 (Canon T-H1 A4 Color Laser LBP OHP
paper), OHP for CLC, and OHP for monochrome use (Canon domestic LBP
transparencies), must not be used in this printer. Such use may result in a
malfunction in the fixing assembly, or deterioration of picture quality.
● Label sheet
A4-size label sheet can be used in this printer.
● Do not use the following types of label sheet. If a sheet type that does not
conform to specifications is used, paper jams that are hard to remove may
occur or printer malfunctions may be caused.
・ Sheet with labels that are likely to peel off, or sheet on which part of the
labels have been used.
・ Coated sheet that can easily peel off from the backing sheet.
・ Label sheet with some adhesive surfaces exposed.

Printing from the Paper Cassette
You can load standard-size plain sheets of A5, B5, A4, Letter, Legal and Executive paper into
the paper cassette and optional 500-sheet paper cassette.
You can load up to 250 sheets of paper (64 g/m2) in the standard paper cassette and up to 500
sheets (up to 250 if you are using Executive-size paper) of paper (64 g/m2) in the 500-sheet
paper cassette of the optional paper feeder unit.

■ 250-sheet paper cassette (standard)
See“Loading Paper”(→ p. 9) for details on how to load paper into the 250-sheet paper cassette.
■ 500-sheet paper cassette (option)
Follow the instructions below when loading paper into the 500-sheet paper cassette.
1
Check that the ジョブ indicator is
not flashing, then pull the handle
of the 500-sheet paper cassette
and pull the paper cassette all the
way out.
Caution
● When the paper cassette is heavy because it has paper in it, pull the cassette

Fan the paper, then straighten the
edges.
Set the paper on a flat surface to line up its
edges.
● If the paper is not straightened before loading, this could lead to a paper
feed malfunction or paper jam.
5
Set the paper flush against the
rear paper size guide and then load
it into the cassette.
1 mm or more
Paper limit guide
Paper can be loaded into the cassette until
there is a space of approximately 1 mm or
more between the top of the paper stack and
the paper limit guide on the paper size guide
(you should leave a reasonable amount of
space between the paper limit guide and the
top of the paper stack).
● Do not force the top of the paper stack down under the paper limit guide.
This could lead to a paper feed malfunction or a paper jam.
● If you are loading Executive-size paper into the cassette, leave plenty of
space between the top of the stack and the paper limit guide. (You should
load approximately 250 sheets.) This could lead to a paper feed malfunction.
12
To print on letterhead paper or paper with a logo on it, follow the instructions
below to load the paper in the proper direction.
● If you want to print a single-side
print, load the paper so that the
side you want to print on is face
down and the top edge of the
paper is facing the front of the
cassette.
●If you are using the optional
duplex unit to duplex print, load
the paper so that the side you
want to print on is face up and
the top edge of the paper is
facing the rear of the cassette.

Set the paper size dial to the new
paper size.
If you have loaded A5-size paper, set the
paper size dial to“CUSTOM”.
● Always set the paper size dial to the size of the paper you want to load. If
you do not, the paper will not feed properly.
● Set the paper size dial to“CUSTOM”if you have loaded A5-size paper.

Load the 500-sheet paper
cassette into the 500-sheet paper
feeder.
● If the paper is not fed, move the paper size guide back marginally being
careful not to push the paper too hard.
● If multiple sheets of paper are outputted, move the paper size guide forward
marginally being careful not to leave a space between the paper size guide
and the stack of paper.

Canceling Printing
To cancel printing currently being performed, carry out job cancel. Job cancel lets you cancel a
job while data is being received or processed. It does not affect the printing data for the next job
or any other interface jobs for which data processing has not begun.
● Carry out job cancel off-line when data is being processed (when the ジョブ
indicator is on or flashing). If you press the ジョブキャンセル key when
the ジョブ indicator is off, it functions as the ユーティリティ key.
● Data that has already been processed and is currently being printed (when
paper feeding has begun) cannot be canceled. In this case, be careful
because carrying out job cancel might cancel the next printing data.
● If printing data is sent from a printer driver other than your printer driver and
mixed with your data, multiple printing jobs might be canceled.
Follow the instructions below to carry out job cancel. Only carry out job cancel when the ジョ
ブ indicator is on or flashing (when the data of the job you want to cancel is being received or
processed).

Checking Operations
To maintain the best print quality, the printer is equipped with functions such as the self-diagnosis
function which allows checking of the printer’s internal functions and test print which allows
checking of the print quality.
Use these functions whenever necessary such as after preparing and connecting the printer or
whenever you want to check its operating condition.
Test Print
The printer is equipped with test print functions for checking such items as printer status and
print quality. After preparing and connecting the printer, perform a test print to check printer
operations. Follow the instructions below to run a test print.
● The test print is programmed to print on A4 size paper.
