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:
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.
• 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.)
Paper Requirements
3-9

Loading and Outputting 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.
Paper Source
This printer is supplied with two paper sources: the paper cassette (Cassette 1) and
multi-purpose tray. By installing the optional paper feeder (Cassette 2), up to 3
paper sources can be used.
● Paper Level Indicator
3
Loading and Outputting Paper
The paper cassette has a paper level indicator (A) that shows the amount of paper
remaining in the cassette. If the cassette is full, the paper level indicator is at the top.
Because the indicator moves down as the amount of paper drops, this gives a rough
estimate of the amount of paper remaining.

Selecting a Paper Source
A paper source can be selected using the following procedure.
■ When printing from Windows or Macintosh
Select a paper source in the printer driver. Because the default setting for the paper
selection in the printer driver is [Auto], if a paper size is specified by an application, the
printer selects the paper source automatically and feeds paper from the paper source.
Even when the paper source runs out of paper during printing, if paper of the same size is
loaded in other paper source, the paper source is switched automatically and the paper is
fed.
If you want to specify a paper source, select the paper source in the printer driver. For
more details on using the printer driver, see Help of the printer driver.

NOTE
• CASSETTE 2 is displayed only when the paper feeder is installed.
• If paper of the same size is loaded in two or more paper sources when the paper
source setting is specified to be selected automatically, paper is fed from the upper
paper source regardless of the status of the paper source indicators. When the
paper source runs out of paper, the paper source automatically switches to other
one in which paper of the same size is loaded.
Precautions for Handling the Multi-purpose Tray or Paper
Cassette
IMPORTANT
• 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 multi-purpose tray 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 put anything other than the printing paper on the multi-purpose tray. Also, do not
press on top of or apply excessive force to the multi-purposes tray. This may result in
damage to the multi-purpose tray.
• Do not touch the black rubber pad (A) in the paper cassette. This may result in misfeeds.

IMPORTANT
• Do not touch the paper during automatic 2-sided printing until it is completely output to
the face-down output tray. In automatic 2-sided printing, the paper is partially output once
after printed on its surface and is fed again to be printed on its reverse side.
• When performing automatic 2-sided printing, the printer can output paper only to the
face-down output tray.
• When printing envelopes, output them to the face-up output tray. If envelopes are output
to the face-down output tray, this may result in misfeeds.
• The surroundings of the face-down output tray are hot during printing or immediately
after printing. When taking out of the paper or removing jammed paper, be careful not to
touch the surroundings of the face-down output tray.
NOTE
The face-down output tray can hold up to approximately 250 sheets of plain paper (64 g/
m2). The paper capacity varies depending on the paper type and paper size. For more
details, see "Paper Capacity of the Output Trays," on p. 3-18.
3-16
Output Trays
Face-up Output Tray
Printed paper is output to the face-up output tray on the rear of the printer unit with
the printed side facing up. The face-up output tray 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 face-up output tray before performing automatic 2-sided printing.
• The surroundings of the face-up output tray are hot during printing or immediately after
printing. When taking out of the paper or removing jammed paper, be careful not to touch
the surroundings of the face-up output tray.
NOTE
The face-up output tray can hold up to approximately 50 sheets of plain paper (64 g/m2).
The paper capacity varies depending on the paper type and paper size. For more details,

perform 2-sided printing on paper to which automatic 2-sided printing cannot be
applied. When printing on the other side of previously printed paper from the
multi-purpose tray, load the paper as shown in the following figures.
Load the paper so that the printing side is facing up as shown in the following

Menu Functions
This section describes the menu functions and their categories.
Menu Functions
Before printing, specify the total print pages, paper size, etc. Generally, these
settings are specified in an application or printer driver.
This printer, however, is equipped with many functions as well as the settings for
the total print pages and paper size, enabling printing for a wide array of uses.
Some settings for this printer cannot be specified by application or printer driver.
You can specify these settings using the "menu functions".
The Printing Environment
4
You can specify the settings using the menu functions easily because in the menu
functions a variety of settings are classified by purpose.
There are the following two kinds of procedures for specifying the menu functions.
■ Settings Using the Printer's Control Panel
Specify the settings by pressing the keys while checking the display on the printer.
■ Settings Using the Remote UI
Some settings specified by the control panel can be specified by a web browser from your
computer.
NOTE
• For this section, this manual describes only the procedures for specifying the menu
functions using the control panel. For details on specifying the settings using the Remote
UI, see "Remote UI Guide".
• The settings for the menu functions are registered to the memory (NVRAM) in which data
is not deleted normally even if the printer is turned OFF. Therefore, even after cycling the
power of the printer, it starts with its settings unchanged from when the printer was
turned OFF last time.
4-2
Menu Functions
Setting Priority
When the setting values for the same option are different between an application or
the printer driver and the menu functions, the setting specified in the application or
printer driver is effective. When specifying a setting only in the menu functions
using the control panel or the Remote UI, the most recently specified setting is
effective.

The printer driver and Remote UI are supplied with this printer. For details on using
the printer driver or Remote UI, see Help of the printer driver, and "Remote UI
Guide".
Depending on the settings, they become effective after cycling the power of the
printer or performing a hard reset.
Menu Categories
There are the following six categories of the menu.
For the functions and operation procedures, see "Menu Functions and Menu
Operation," on p. 4-9.
For details on each menu, see "Chapter 5 Printing Environment Settings".

TEXT ..............RESOLUTION*, GRADATION, COLOR TONE, HIGH RESOL.
GRAPHICS ....COLOR TONE*, HIGH RESOL., RESOLUTION, GRADATION
IMAGE............COLOR TONE*, HIGH RESOL., RESOLUTION, GRADATION
This setting specifies how to express halftones in black and white data.
Print data is expressed in dots. Fine gradations, edges, and shades are
expressed by using dither patterns, which are groups of dots. This is called
halftone processing.
For example, using a pattern that sharpens character and line edges, or a pattern
that smoothens image and graph gradation, enables you to obtain the most
suitable texture.
If RESOLUTION is selected, you can print text with distinct outlines, which is best
to print text and thin lines.
If GRADATION is selected, you can print with both smooth gradation and outlines,
which is best to print graphs and graphics that use gradation.
If COLOR TONE is selected, you can print with sharp gradation and well-balanced
texture, contrasting light and shade, which is best for printing images.
If HIGH RESOL. is selected, finer printing can be done than with RESOLUTION,
although toner stability is somewhat weaker. This is suited to printing small
characters and fine lines, and outlines (such as from CAD data) sharply.

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
IMPORTANT
If the printing appears faint or inconsistent even when <16 PREPARE TONER> or <16
CHECK TONER> does not appear, this may be due to any toner cartridge reaching the
end of its life. Do not continue to use the toner cartridge and replace it with new a one
when there is deterioration in print quality. When you replace a toner cartridge, be sure to
use a toner cartridge designed for this printer.
NOTE
• Two types of toner cartridge that have different lifetime (Canon Genuine Cartridges) are
available for this printer.
• The lifetime of the toner cartridges (Canon Genuine Cartridges) designed for this printer
is approximately 6,000 pages or 12,000 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 diagrams, charts, or graphs, 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, taking the toner cartridge with its lifetime of
approximately 6,000 pages (Canon Genuine Cartridges) as an example.

may be damaged by magnetic waves, such as a floppy disk or disk drive. This may lead
to damage to data.
Storing Toner Cartridges
Be careful of the following points when storing a new toner cartridge or handling a
toner cartridge that has been taken out of the printer for maintenance or moving the
printer.
IMPORTANT
• Do not take a new toner cartridge out of the protective bag until it is ready to be used.
• When you take the toner cartridge out of the printer for servicing the printer or other
purposes, place the toner cartridge into the original protective bag, or wrap it with a thick
cloth immediately.
• Do not place it vertically or upside-down. Store the toner cartridge in the same
orientation as when installed in the printer.
• Do not store the toner cartridge in a place exposed to direct sunlight.
• Do not store cartridges in a hot or humid place, or a place where the temperature and
humidity can change significantly.
Storing environment temperature: 0 to 35°C (32 to 95°F)
Storing humidity range: 35 to 85% RH (no condensation)
• Do not store the toner cartridge in a place where corrosive gases, such as ammonia, are
generated, or where a considerable amount of salt is contained in the air, or where there
is a lot of dust.
• Keep the toner cartridge out of the reach of small children.

Paper Jams
When a paper jam occurs, confirm the messages first, then remove the paper
following the procedure.
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.
• Keep your hands or clothing away from the roller in the output area after
removing jammed paper completely. Even if the printer is not printing, sudden
rotation of the roller may catch your hands or clothing, resulting in personal
injury.
Troubleshooting

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.

Clean the fixing roller. (See "Cleaning the Fixing Roller," on p. 6-16)
A portion of a page is not printed.
Cause 1
The scale factor is incorrect.
Remedy 1 Clear the [Manual Scaling] check box in the printer driver. If the check box is
cleared, the scale factor will be set according to [Page Size] and [Output Size]
automatically.
In order to specify the setting for [Manual Scaling], display the [Page Setup]
sheet.
Remedy 2 Select the [Manual Scaling] check box in the printer driver, then specify an
appropriate scale factor according to the paper size to be used.
In order to specify the setting for [Manual Scaling], display the [Page Setup]
sheet.
Cause 2
The position of the paper is incorrect.
Remedy
Load the paper properly. (See "Loading Paper in the Paper Cassette," on p.
3-23, "Loading Paper in the Multi-purpose Tray," on p. 3-39)
Cause 3
A document with no margins was printed.
Remedy
The printable area for this printer is the area except for within a 5 mm margin
(10 mm for envelopes) on all sides of the paper. Create a gutter around the print
data.
Troubleshooting

IMPORTANT
You may not obtain the optimum print quality when printing envelope data with no margin.
It is recommended that you specify the size of the data a little smaller than the printable
area for the envelope size.
The paper is printed completely black.

Cause
The drum in the toner cartridge has deteriorated.
Remedy
Replace the toner cartridge with a new one. (See "Replacing the Toner
Cartridge," on p. 6-2)
When You Cannot Obtain Appropriate Printout Results
Toner does not fix well.
Cause 1
Paper is inappropriate.
Remedy
Replace the paper with one that can be used with this printer. (See "Paper
Requirements," on p. 3-2)
Cause 2
Toner does not fix onto paper completely.
Remedy
Select the appropriate fixing mode from [Fixing Mode] in the printer driver.
In order to specify the setting for [Fixing Mode], display the [Advanced Settings]
dialog box by clicking [Finishing Details] in the [Finishing] sheet, and then
clicking [Advanced Settings] in the [Finishing Details] dialog box. [Mode 3]
enhances the toner fixing the most, and [Mode 2] and [Mode 1] follow
respectively. [Mode 4] enhances the toner fixing the least.
The back of the printed paper has smudge marks.
Cause
The size of the print data was larger than that of the loaded paper.
