Copying documents
One of the convenient features of the fax is its ability to make high quality copies. You can make up to 99
copies of one document at a time.
If you make copies of multiple documents at a time, the number of pages the fax can scan into memory
varies depending on the scanning resolutions (see p. 5-1) as follows:
• STANDARD/FINE
= 25 pages
• PHOTO
= 1 page
1
• STANDARD and FINE result in the same resolution when making copies.
• If MEMORY FULL appears on the LCD when making multiple copies, see Copying problems, p. 9-13.
Load the document face up into the document tray.
See Loading documents, p. 3-2.

Resolution is a measure of 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.

Periodic cleaning
Your fax requires little periodic maintenance. This section describes the necessary cleaning procedures for
the fax. Please note the following before cleaning:
• Be sure to disconnect the power cord before cleaning the fax. Since documents in memory are erased when
the power is disconnected, print any documents stored in memory before disconnecting the power cord
(see p. 5-14).
• Do not use tissue paper, paper towels, or similar materials for cleaning; they can stick to the components
or generate static charges.
Never use volatile liquids such as thinners, benzene, acetone, or any other chemical cleaner to clean
the interior of the fax.
Caution
Cleaning the exterior of the fax ________________
1
Disconnect the power cord from the fax.
3
When you are finished, reconnect the
power cord.
2
Wipe the exterior of the fax with a clean,
soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water
or diluted dishwashing detergent solution.

Testing and cleaning the BJ cartridge print head __
The print head in the BJ cartridge contains nozzles through which ink is propelled onto the paper. To
maintain the best possible print quality, these nozzles need to be cleaned from time to time. Your fax is
equipped with a print head cleaning function that does this.
K Printing the nozzle check pattern
Before cleaning the print head, you may want to print the nozzle check pattern to test the print head of the
BJ cartridge installed in the fax. This test shows if each print head nozzle is operating properly.

• You can set the fax not to store documents in memory if a problem occurs during reception (see
MEMORY RX, p. 8-4).
• Once the pages are printed, they are deleted from memory.
Polling to receive documents _________________
The polling feature allows you to request a document to be faxed to you from another fax machine. The
sending party only needs to make sure the document is on a fax machine and ready to be sent. Thus, when
your fax polls the other fax machine, the document is sent automatically. The fax can poll any fax machine
that supports polling.
Note
• Before attempting to poll a fax machine, make sure that the other fax machine supports polling.
• If the other party is using a Canon fax machine which has the Polling ID function, ask them to set the
Polling ID of their fax machine to 255 (11111111 binary number).
• For details on the Polling ID, see the other party’s fax machine manual. In all other cases the Polling ID
is not a concern.
• Your fax cannot be polled by another fax machine.

Sending documents
Memory sending ___________________________
The fax normally uses direct sending to send your document, but you can send it with memory sending (see
below). In this case, the fax quickly scans the document into memory. Then it sends the document from
memory. This means you do not have to wait for the fax to finish sending before you can retrieve your
original document.
You can send up to 15 A4-size pages at a time with memory sending (based on the Canon FAX Standard
Chart No.1, standard resolution).
Note

because of a busy signal.
Automatic redialling can be turned off and on. The number of redialling attempts and the time interval
between attempts can also be adjusted (see AUTO REDIAL, p. 8-3).
If all redialling attempts are unsuccessful, the fax will cancel the transmission and print an ERROR TX
REPORT to remind you that the transmission was not completed (see p. 8-7).
When automatic redialling is in use, the LCD displays AUTO REDIAL while it is waiting to redial.

Adjust the document guide to the width of
the document, and gently insert the top of
the document face up into the document
tray until you hear a beep.
Note
• For a multipage document, the pages are fed
one by one from the top of the stack.
• Wait until all pages of your document have
been scanned before starting a new job.
• Make sure you follow the procedure above to
load documents into the document tray. If the
document is not loaded into the document
tray correctly, it may not be fed into the fax
properly; resulting in a jam, or in pages not
being sent.
• If you want to send a document with more
than 15 pages, divide the document into 2
sections and send each section in a separate
transmission.
Problems with multipage documents____________
If you have trouble feeding multipage documents from the document tray into the fax, remove the stack and
tap it on a flat surface to even the edges. Then slant the stack so that its front edge is bevelled, and insert the
stack into the document tray.
To avoid feeding problems, make sure the document meets the document requirements (see p. 3-1).

Loading paper
Paper guidelines ___________________________
Paper limit mark
Tab
No gaps here
• Let the paper run out before refilling the multi-purpose tray. Avoid mixing new stock with paper already
loaded.
• Do not leave paper stacked in the multi-purpose tray for long periods of time since it may bend or curl and
cause problems.
• Certain environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures or humidity, can cause some paper to
misfeed in the multi-purpose tray. If you have trouble, feed one sheet at a time.
• Depending on the density of the printed pages, the ink may need time to dry. Within two or three seconds,
the ink becomes smudge-resistant. After drying for several minutes, the ink becomes water-resistant.
• If your printed page contains a large amount of graphics, the ink on the page may be damp due to the print
density. Leave the page for 30 to 60 seconds to allow the ink to dry. Then remove the page carefully
without touching any surfaces.
• If paper curls after printing, remove it immediately; otherwise paper jams may occur.
• The platen (a roller inside the fax) may become inked if you print data beyond the width of the page. If
this happens, clean inside the fax (see p. 9-3).
1-7
1
SETTING UP
• Be sure to load paper of the correct size, weight, and quantity recommended for your fax (see pp. 3-1, S-1).
• Store all paper wrapped and on a flat surface until ready to use. Keep opened packs in their original
packaging, in a cool, dry location.
• Store paper at 18°-24°C, 40%-60% relative humidity.
• To avoid paper jams and poor print quality, do not print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper.
• Use cut-sheet paper only, not paper that comes on a roll.
• Use only paper that has a thickness of between 0.08 and 0.13 mm. Thick paper may damage the BJ
cartridge print head.
• Do not load paper beyond the paper limit mark (P) or beyond the tab on the paper guide. Doing so may
cause problems. Also, make sure there are no gaps on either side of the paper stack.
Loading paper in the multi-purpose tray _________
1
Move the paper guide to the left.
3
Insert the stack into the multi-purpose
tray a, and align the right edge of the
stack with the right side of the multipurpose tray. Then slide the paper guide
snugly against the left edge of the stack
b.
If necessary, remove the document tray when
loading paper.

Fan the stack of paper that you want to
feed into the fax. Then tap the edge of the
stack on a flat surface to even the stack.
Installing the BJ cartridge
The first time you set up your fax, you have to install the BJ cartridge before you can begin receiving and
copying documents.
For information on replacing the BJ cartridge, see p. 9-6.
• Use only a Canon BX-3 Black BJ cartridge in your fax.
• Store BJ cartridges at room temperature.
• When the BJ cartridge print head is left exposed, it easily dries out and becomes unusable. To avoid this,
keep the followings:
– Keep BJ cartridges in the packaging until you are ready to use them.
– Never remove the BJ cartridge unless you are going to replace it.
– Keep the cartridge holder in the home position (on the right side of the fax) when you are not using the
fax.
• Replace BJ cartridges after one year of use.
Note
If you need to unplug the fax, wait until it returns to standby mode (time and receive mode displayed on
the LCD). Otherwise the cartridge holder may not be in its home position; causing the BJ cartridge to
remain uncapped and dry out.
• Store BJ cartridges out of the reach of children.
If a child inadvertently ingests ink, consult a
Caution physician immediately.
• Do not touch the precision components on the
BJ cartridge.
Do not touch these metallic areas.
The ink in the BJ cartridge is difficult to clean up if spilled. Follow the precautions below when handling
the BJ cartridge.
• Carefully remove packaging from BJ cartridges.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or refill BJ cartridges.
• Do not shake or drop BJ cartridges.

Dialling through a switchboard (PBX)
A PBX (private branch exchange) is an on-site telephone switchboard.
• If your fax is connected through a switchboard, dial an outside line access number first. Then dial the rest
of the number.
• If you want to dial with automatic dialling, you may have to insert a pause between the outside line number
and the telephone number when you register the number for one-touch or coded speed dialling.
• When the fax is connected to a PBX or other telephone switching system, you can register the access type
and outside access line number under the [R] button (see p. 1-13). Once you have registered them, you
simply need to press [R] before dialling a fax or telephone number.

Important safety instructions
Read these safety instructions thoroughly before using your fax.
Caution
Except as specifically described in this guide, do not attempt to service the fax yourself. Never
attempt to disassemble the fax: opening and removing its interior covers will expose you to
dangerous voltages and other risks. For all service, contact your local authorised Canon dealer or
the Canon help line.
K Handling and maintenance
•
•
•
•
Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the fax.
Do not subject the fax to strong physical shock or vibration.
Always unplug the fax before moving or cleaning it.
To avoid paper jams, never unplug the power cord, open the printer cover, or remove paper from the multipurpose tray while printing.
• When transporting the fax, leave the BJ cartridge installed in the cartridge holder and tape the cartridge
holder to the right side of the fax. This will prevent ink spilling inside the fax.
• Always lift the fax by its base as shown below. Never lift it by any of its attachments or covers.
• Do not push objects of any kind into the slots or openings on the fax as they may touch dangerous voltage
points or short out parts. This could result in fire or electric shock.
• Do not allow small objects (such as pins, paper clips, or staples) to fall into the fax. If something does fall
into the fax, unplug it immediately and contact your local authorised Canon dealer or the Canon help line.
• To avoid spillage in or around the fax, do not eat or drink near it. If you spill liquid or if any substance
falls into the fax, unplug the fax immediately and contact your local authorised Canon dealer or the Canon
help line.
• Keep the fax clean. Dust accumulation can prevent the fax from operating properly.
• Unplug the fax from the wall outlet and refer service to qualified personnel under the following
conditions:
– When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
– If liquid has spilled into the fax.
– If the fax has been exposed to rain or water.
– If the fax does not operate normally when you have followed the instructions in this guide. Adjust only
those controls that are covered by the instructions in this guide. Improper adjustment of other controls
may result in damage and may require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the product to
normal operation.
