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.
• When removing jammed paper or replacing a 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 which has become 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.
xv
• When removing a used toner cartridge from the toner cartridge guide, remove the
cartridge carefully to prevent the toner from scattering and entering 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 and other consumables out of the reach of small children. If these items
are ingested, consult a physician immediately.

Features and Benefits
■ High Performance Printing System "CAPT"
1
Before You Start Using This Printer
LBP3210 is equipped with the latest CAPT (Canon Advanced Printing Technology)
software supporting Windows operations systems. As this system batch-processes the
print data in a computer instead of a printer, it enables high-speed printing, making full
use of the features of a computer. It shortens the time period over which the computer is
freed. The information, such as out of paper, the remaining time of printing and the
estimated time of print completion, appears on the display in real time.
■ USB 2.0 High Speed Preinstalled
LBP3210 achieves high-speed transmission by supporting High-Speed I/F USB 2.0 that
offers up to 480 Mbps transmission speeds.
■ High-speed Printing & Extra-High-definition Image Printing
20 pages per minute printing provides fast, stress-free printing at 600 dpi resolution.
Canon's new Automatic Image Refinement provides 2400 x 600 dpi extra-high resolution
images. Gray scale dithering produces detailed and clear images for photographs and
graphics.
■ Supports Various Networks
If you use this printer as a network printer, the status is displayed in both the server and
client computers. You can perform job operations from both of them.
■ Supports Various Types of Media
Various types of media, such as plain paper, envelopes (Envelope C5, Envelope COM10,
Envelope DL, Envelope Monarch), labels, and transparencies, can be used for this printer.
Although this printer is for A4 size paper, its reduction mode can reduce a document of
larger size, such as A3 and B4, to A4 size to print.
You can also use custom paper sizes.
■ Low Power Consumption and Quick Startup
Canon's own "On-demand Fixing System" achieves low power consumption and quick
startup. This innovative technology heats the fixing heater instantaneously only at printing,
and reduces warm-up time. So, LBP3210 is always in standby status and ready to print.
Furthermore, the average power consumption during standby status is only about 6 W.
■ Compact & Quiet Design
The compact design of this printer saves space in your home or office.
Quiet printing and noiseless standby status allow you to use this printer without
concerning with neighborhood even at night.

Storing Paper
The quality of paper may deteriorate if it is stored improperly even when the printer
meets the normal specifications. Deteriorated paper may cause misfeeds, paper
jams, or deterioration in print quality.
Observe the following guidelines for 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.
• Avoid direct sunlight and a humid or dry place when storing paper.
• 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. Toner may melt and
stick to the PVC material.
• Use insoluble adhesive when gluing printouts. Toner may melt when insoluble adhesive is
used. Before using the adhesive, test it with paper that is no longer required.
Confirm that the printouts are 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.)

printing ratio of approximately 5 % and print density set to default) is printed. The toner
consumption differs depending on document contents. As a document with few blanks,
such as graphics, consumes toner much, if you often print this type of documents, the life
of the toner cartridge is shortened.
• Even when the toner cartridge has reached its lifetime, a message does not appear on
your computer. Replace the toner cartridge approximately when white streaks appear in
the vertical direction of the paper or the print becomes too thin or uneven.
Before Replacing the Toner Cartridge
Toner cartridge is a consumable product. If there is not sufficient toner, white
streaks may appear in the vertical direction of the paper or the print may be too thin
or uneven. In this case, perform the following procedure before replacing the toner
cartridge. You may be able to print for a while until toner runs out completely.
CAUTION
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.

connected to a network. NetSpot Device Installer can be accessed directly without
being installed on a computer, allowing network administrators to quickly and easily
specify the initial settings for the network connection of the printer.
For details on NetSpot Device Installer, see the instruction manual supplied with the
network adapter (AXIS 1650).
NOTE
Depending on the CD-ROM being used, NetSpot Device Installer may not be included. In
this case, access the website of Canon and download it.

Windows Firewall
Windows Firewall is a feature of Windows XP Service Pack 2 and other operating
systems that protects your computer by blocking unauthorized access over the
network.
If your print server is installed with an operating system equipped with Windows
Firewall, you need to configure Windows Firewall to unblock communication
between the print server and client computers.
This section explains how to use the [CAPT Windows Firewall Utility] to configure
Windows Firewall to unblock or block communication with client computers.
IMPORTANT
If you want to copy the [CAPT Windows Firewall Utility] to your hard disk to run it, copy all
of the files (CNAB2FW.EXE, CAPTRGFW.DLL, CNAB2FW.INI) from the [WF_UTIL]
folder on the supplied "LBP3210 User Software" CD-ROM to your hard disk.
