Using the Printer With Windows
This chapter describes how to use the printer with your Windows applications. It
includes:
o Installing a printer driver
o Printing a document
o Printer setup within Windows 95
o Printer setup within Windows 3.1
o The Windows tabs
o Printing speed versus color
Before using your printer for the first time, it's a good idea to perform print
head alignment to obtain optimum print quality. See your Quick Start
Guide for details.
Installing a Printer Driver
Before you can use any type of printer with your computer, you must install a
printer driver. The printer driver tells the computer what kind of a printer you are
using. The printer driver also controls the various settings, such as print quality an
paper type. You define these settings within the printer driver, and the printer
driver then communicates the settings to both the computer and the printer.
You must install the BJC-7000 Series Printer Driver for Windows before
you can use the printer with your computer. See your Quick Start Guide for
instructions.

Detection and/or Pause Page.
Printing Speed Versus Color
The BJC-7000 Series Printer Driver for Windows can interpret and translate the
full spectrum of colors, up to 16.7 million colors. When printing in color, there is
a significant increase in the amount of information that the driver has to interpret
and translate. When printing black ink only, the driver has only one color to
interpret.
By decreasing the amount of colors that the printer driver has to interpret, you can
significantly decrease the time needed to translate the information. This will speed
up the overall printing process.
Ways to Improve Print Speed in Windows
To improve printing speed, you can try the following:
o Turn off the Print Manager in the Windows Control Panel (Windows 3.1
only).
This avoids the extra step of sending the print file to the Print Manager
and may increase your printing speed by as much as 25%, depending on
the computer you are using.
o Add a permanent swap file in Windows 3.1.
Under the 386 Enhanced icon in the Windows Control Panel, add or create
a permanent swap file that is from 4 MB to 9 MB. The computer will be
able to prepare the print file faster. See your Windows documentation for
instructions.
o Avoid diffusion halftones.
In the Quality tab, choose Diffusion for Halftoning only when printing
final output or photographic images. Choosing a Halftoning setting of
Fine/Fast allows documents to print as much as 20% faster because the
computer does not need to compute to "best possible position" for each
dot.
o Avoid color adjustment.
In the Color tab, disable the Color Adjustment option. This feature takes
longer to process in the computer because it requires special information.
o Free up your memory.
Use only one software program at a time and unload any screen saving
utilities or programs stored in Windows background; this frees up more
memory for Windows processing.
o Use Monochrome when possible.
If you will be printing text in black ink only, enable Monochrome on the
Print tab. Print draft documents in Monochrome rather than Color or Auto.
o Limit the number of colors on each page.
The computer will need to calculate and transmit fewer dots. To many
colors can make the image confusing and less effective as well as cause
the print speed to slow down.
o Use primary colors when printing presentation graphics.
Use black, cyan, yellow, magenta, blue, green, and red when possible. The
computer will need to calculate and transfer less dot information.
o User the Draft setting for Print Mode
The printer will need to image fewer dots.
o Use Plain Paper as the Media Type.
The print head will make one or two passes for each printed line.
o Use smaller graphics and more white space in your documents.
The computer will be able to prepare the print file faster.
o Add RAM to your computer.
The computer will be able to prepare the print file faster.
o Use a computer with a faster processor.
The computer will be able to prepare the print file faster.
Paper Handling
This chapter describes how to use the printer for all your printing operations. It
includes:
o Selecting paper
o Summary of printer settings for various print media
o Loading paper
o Manually feeding paper
o Printing on envelopes
o Using Canon Specialty Papers
To ensure the best performance of your printer, you'll want to select the best paper
and load it correctly. You can stack paper in the sheet feeder to load it
automatically, or you can manually feed one sheet at a time.
Selecting Paper Types
One of the most important things you can do to assure the best possible
performance of your Bubble Jet printer is to select the correct paper. Your printer
produces letter quality print on most plain bond papers, including cotton bond and
photocopying papers; it does not require special ink jet papers. However, the print
quality varies with different paper types. Be sure to test a type of paper before you
purchase a large quantity.
Plain Paper
The printer supports paper sizes of letter, letter plus, legal, A4, and A4 plus in
portrait orientation. You can use regular copier paper, cotton bond papers, and
typical letterhead. Always use paper without curls, folds staples, or damaged
edges. Copier paper has a preferred side for printing. Look at the label on the
package to see which side to print on first.
High Gloss Photo Film
The Canon High Gloss Photo Film HG-201 features a bright white finish that
lends striking visual power to charts, graphs, and photographic images. Use this
film to make your presentation materials and graphics look professional. When
printing on this film, use the BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge and select High Gloss
Film in the printer driver
Glossy Photo Paper
Canon Glossy Photo Paper GP-201 is a high gloss, thicker paper that produces the
look and feel of a photograph. Use this paper with the BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge
to produce top-quality photo-realistic prints from your printer. On your printer
driver, select Glossy Paper when you have Glossy Photo Paper loaded.
High Resolution Paper
The Canon High Resolution Paper HR-101 is designed to produce photo-realistic
quality output with sharp and vivid graphics. For best results, use the BC-62
Photo BJ Cartridge to produce images comparable to your favorite photographs.
T-Shirt Transfers
Use Canon's popular T-Shirt Transfers TR-101 to create and personalize T-shirts,
sweatshirts, aprons, tablecloths, napkins, tote bags, and anything else your
imagination allows! Use on any cotton or cotton/poly blend fabric. Your image is
printed in mirror image (when you use T-Shirt Transfer mode through the BJC7000 Printer Driver for Windows) so when you iron it onto the T-shirt, the image
is viewed correctly.
Greeting Cards
Get the most out of your Canon Creative or other card making software with
Canon Greeting Cards GC-101. These cards give your unique, personalized cards
the look and feel of professional cards. You can create cards, invitations,
announcements, and more.
Fabric Sheets
Use Fabric Sheet FS-101 for Canon Bubble Jet printers to print banners, pillow
covers, scarves, flags, and other textile items. Use these sheets for appliqués and
other craft and sewing projects. Fabric sheets are 9.5 x 14 inches.
Back Print Film
Canon Back Print Film BF-102 has been specially developed for Canon Color
Bubble Jet printers. The film is designed to deliver brilliant, high-intensity color
images suitable for business presentations, design work, or professional reports.
Back print film is printed on the back (matte nonglossy) side of the film in mirror
image and then viewed from the front or glossy side using a backlighting device.
For more details, ask a Canon Authorized Dealer for information or refer to the
manual supplied with the film.
Transparencies
CF-102 Transparencies from Canon are recommended. These transparencies
produce excellent contrast, sharpness, and color.
Assorted Paper Starter Kit
If you would like to try some of the papers described above, look for Canon's
Starter Kit (SK-101). It contains an assortment of five paper types.
If you are printing in an application outside Windows, your
software application or printer driver must support mirror image
printing in order to use Back Print Film or T-Shirt Transfers.
Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, please remember the following:
o Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause
paper jams and poor print quality.
o Use cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multipart paper.
o When using graph paper, the lines may not match because the 1/6-inch
line spacing of the printer is slightly less than that of graph paper.
o If the print density of your page is very high, light paper stock may curl
slightly due to the large amount of ink..If you need to print dense graphics,
try printing on heavier stock.
o Do not use thicker paper that meets the specifications for this printer.
Printing with a paper that is thick enough to come in contact with the print
head nozzles may damage the BJ cartridge.

Loading Paper
You can stack paper in the sheet feeder to load it automatically, or you can
manually feed one sheet at time through the manual feed slot.
You can place approximately 130 sheets of plain paper (20 lb or 64 g/m2) in the
sheet feeder at a time.
You can stack approximately 30 sheets of transparency film or 10 sheets of back
print film in the sheet feeder. However, these special media may not advance
correctly under unusual environmental conditions (such as extreme temperatures
or humidity). If you have trouble with special papers becoming skewed or feeding
multiple sheets, do not stack them in the sheet feeder. Manually feed them one
sheet at a time.
Automatically Feeding Paper
1
Pull the paper
support up until
it stops.
Pull out the
paper output
tray and its
extension.
2
Fan the
paper.
o For best results, fan the paper before loading it.
o Always fan a stack of paper along the edge that will feed into the
printer first.
3
Slide the
stack of
paper into
the sheet
feeder until
it stops.
o Align the edge of the paper with the right edge of the sheet feeder.
o Secure the stack with the paper guide.
4
Start your
print
operation.
o Make sure the printer is turned on.
Auto Feed Guidelines
When automatically feeding stacks of paper, follow these guidelines:
o Do not open the front cover while printing. This may cause paper jams,
smudges, or malfunctions.
o Do not leave paper stacked in the printer for long periods of time; longer
sheets of paper may become bent or curled over time. This may cause the
paper to misfeed or jam.
o If your printed page contains lots of graphics, the ink on the page may be
damp due to the print density. Remove the page right away and allow the
ink to dry.
o The capacity of the paper output tray is 20 sheets of paper. To reduce
paper jams, remove paper from the output tray before the count reaches
20.
o If paper curls after printing, remove it immediately; otherwise, paper jams
may occur.
o The platen (a roller on the inside of the printer) may become inked if your
print data beyond the width of the page. If this happens, clean the platen
with a soft cloth. (For details on cleaning the platen, see page 4-3.)
o Depending on the density of your printed pages, the ink may need time to
dry. Within two to three seconds, the ink becomes smudge resistant. After
drying for several minutes, the ink becomes water resistant.
o Do not try to load paper into the sheet feeder beyond the paper limit mark
or the tab on the right side of the sheet feeder; stacking too much paper
may cause paper feeding or printing problems
o Make sure there are no gaps between the stack of paper and the paper
guide nor the right edge of the sheet feeder.
Manually Feeding Paper
You use the manual feed function when printing on heavier-weight print media
(17 lb to 146 lb, 64 g/m2 to 550 g/m2, or paper thickness up to 0.8mm).
1
Move the
manual feed
guide to
match your
paper size.
2

Printing On Envelopes
You can stack up to 15 envelopes in the sheet feeder or you can manually feed
envelopes one at time.
U.S. Commercial number 10 (COM10) envelopes and European DL envelopes
are recommended. You may be able to stack envelopes of other sizes in the sheet
feeder; however, Canon cannot guarantee consistent performance on envelope
sizes other than COM10 and DL.
The following envelopes are not recommended because they may cause jams or
smears, or may damage your printer.
o Envelopes with windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, and double flaps.
o Envelopes made with special coated paper or deeply embossed paper.
o Envelopes using peel-off sealing strips.
o Envelopes in which letters have been enclosed.
When you are ready to print on envelopes, follow these steps to stack envelopes
in the sheet feeder. (You can also manually feed envelopes one at a time.)

Printer. It includes:
o Printer guidelines
o Cleaning the printer
o Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
o Cleaning the print heads
o Deep cleaning the print heads
o BJ cartridge guidelines
o Replacing the BJ cartridges
o Replacing a BJ tank in the BC-61 Color or BC-62 Photo BJ cartridge

Printer Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to avoid damage to your printer and harm to you or
others:
o Set the printer on a stable surface. Do not use an angled printer stand.
Avoid setting the printer in direct sunlight.
o Keep the front cover closed when printing.
o Do not set anything on top of the printer.
o Make sure the power is off any time you connect or disconnect the AC
adapter or interface cable.
o Do not unplug the AC adapter unnecessarily.
o Do not unplug the printer or turn off a power strip to which the printer is
attached when the printer's power is turned on. This may prevent the print
head unit from returning to the home position on the right and being
capped, which may cause the print head to dry out. This is critical. If left
uncapped, the print head may clog and may need to be replaced.
o Do not move the mechanism that holds the BJ cartridges. Attempting to
move the BJ cartridge holder may damage delicate mechanical parts.
o It's a good idea to use a power surge protector. However, never tun off the
printer using the power strip. Always use the POWER button on the
printer.
Cleaning the Printer
Your printer requires little routine maintenance. Perform the following
maintenance, as necessary, to keep your printer in good operating condition.
o Before cleaning the printer, make sure the printer is turned off and the
AC adapter is unplugged.
o Do not clean the exterior of the printer with volatile liquids such as
thinners, benzene, or any spray-type or chemical cleaners; doing so
will damage the surface of the printer.
o When cleaning the printer, avoid the area near the print head on the
BJ cartridge. Do not touch the print head. Ink may leak out and
cause stains.
Clean the printer regularly to avoid printing problems. Remove any ink mist or
paper debris from the interior of the printer using a soft cloth moistened with
water. Clean especially well around the platen area. If the rollers become dirty,
you can clean them with a small soft brush.
Clean the exterior of the printer with a soft cloth moistened with water. Clean
away smudges and dust.
Do not use paper products (such as paper towels or tissues) to clean the

waste ink.
o If you execute the print head cleaning while paper is manually
loaded, the printer will eject the paper and then perform the
cleaning.
o If you press and hold the RESUME button until the printer
beeps twice, the printer will perform a deep cleaning of the print
heads. See page 4-11 for details.
Deep Cleaning the Print Heads
o Perform print head deep cleaning only after print head cleaning fails to
correct the problems in the test print.
o You can start print head deep cleaning with the printer driver or with the
RESUME button on the printer.
o Deep cleaning the print heads consumes ink (more ink than print head
cleanings), so deep clean the print heads only after print head cleaning has
failed to correct a problem.
o Before you begin, make sure both the printer and the computer are turned
on.
Always perform print head cleaning with the BJ cartridges installed in the
printer. Never remove the BJ cartridges from the cartridge holder or touch

times, replace the print head.
BJ Cartridge Guidelines
The printer's cartridge holder holds two BJ cartridges, one BC-60 Black BJ
Cartridge and either one BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge or one BC-62 Photo BJ
Cartridge.
o BC-60 Black BJ Cartridge
Contains the print head unit and black ink only. When you run out of
black ink, you replace the complete cartridge.
o BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge
Contains the print head unit and one replaceable color BJ tank, (cyan,
magenta, yellow). You can replace the BJ tank without replacing the
print head unit when you run out of any of the color inks. Use the BCI-61
Color BJ Tank with the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge only.
o BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge
Contains the print head unit and one replaceable color BJ tank. Use the
cartridge when you want to produce photo-realistic color printing. When
used with Canon's High Gloss Photo Film HG-201, Glossy Photo Paper
GP-201, or High Resolution Paper HR-101, this ink produces images
comparable to your favorite photographs. When you run out of ink, you
replace the BJ tank. Use only the BCI-62 Photo BJ Tank with the BC-62
Photo BJ Cartridge.
Replacing BJ Tanks and BJ Cartridges
The actual amount of ink that you use will vary depending on the print density of
a page. If the majority of your output is graphics, you may need to change
cartridges or tanks more often than when you are printing text only. See
Appendix A, Specifications, for details on the life expectancy of the BJ cartridges.
You may need to replace the BJ cartridge or a BJ tank when any of the following
conditions exist:
o Poor print quality
If you notice a deterioration in the quality of printed pages, perform a test
print and clean the print heads before you decide to replace the BJ
cartridge.
o 3 Beeps
When the BC-60 Black BJ Cartridge runs out of ink, the printer will beep
three times and stop printing. Replace the BC-60 Black BJ Cartridge.
o 4 Beeps
When the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge and BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge runs
out of ink, the printer will beep four times and halt printing. Replace the
color BJ tank.
o It's a good idea to replace the BC-60 Black BJ Cartridge if it has been in
use for more than one year.
Canon has more engineers dedicated to creating quality ink for providing
the best results for output on Bubble Jet printer than any other
organization. Canon does not prohibit the use of third-party inks and the
use of third-party inks does not invalidate the product's limited warranty.
However, Canon cannot guarantee the quality or performance of your
printer when you are using inks from other suppliers.
Canon's limited warranty does not cover damage caused to Canon's Bubble
Jet products that is attributable to the use of third party parts or supplies,
including inks. The limited warranty remains in effect for its life one that
particular damage has been properly repaired.
For optimum printing results, Canon recommends that you use only Canon
BJ cartridges and BJ tanks.
BJ Cartridge and BJ Tank Maintenance
The most important thing you can do to extend the life of your printer and to
ensure optimum print quality is take care of the BJ cartridges.
Spilled ink can stain any surface. Open BJ cartridges and BJ tanks carefully,
and follow the guidelines presented here to protect against spilled ink.
o Protect all surrounding surfaces (such as floors, furniture, and clothing)
before opening any BJ cartridge or BJ tank.
o If you are using both the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge and the BC-62 Photo
BJ Cartridge, make sure you store the cartridge not being used in the Ink
Cartridge Storage Box.
o Keep BJ cartridges and BJ tanks in their sealed containers until you are
ready to use them.
o Do not remove the BJ tank from the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge or the BC62 Photo BJ Cartridge unnecessarily. This may cause the ink to clog.
o If spilled, the ink is difficult to remove. Therefore, it's a good idea to keep
the BJ cartridges and BJ tanks out of the reach of children.
o Do not touch the print head area on the BJ cartridges. Ink may leak out
and cause stains.
o Use the SB-60 Ink Cartridge Storage Box for the BC-61 Color or BC-62
Photo BJ Cartridge only. Do not attempt to store a BC-60 Black BJ
Cartridge in this storage box.
Hold the BJ cartridge on the sides only. Do not touch the silver plate on
the bottom of the BJ cartridge or the silver metal or circuit area on the
side. The metal area may become hot during printing.
Replacing the BJ Cartridges
The following procedure describes how to replace the BC-60 Black Cartridge
(when it has run out of ink) or how to switch the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge with
the BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge.
When switching from the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge to the BC-62 Photo BJ
Cartridge (or vice versa), be sure to replace the entire unit. Do not insert a
BCI-61 Color BJ Tank into a BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge, nor a BCI-62 Photo
BJ Tank into a BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge.
Before starting, make sure the printer's power is on.
1
If the print head is hot, it may not move until it has cooled down. Never
attempt to force the cartridge holder to the left manually. Wait a few
minutes for the print head to cool down, then press the CARTRIDGE
button again.
2
Remove the
BJ
cartridge.
o If you are removing the BC-60 Black BJ Cartridge, pull up on the
left cartridge to remove it.
o If you are removing the color cartridge (either the BC-61 Color BJ
Cartridge or BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge), pull up on the right
cartridge to remove it.
3
Discard or
store the
removed BJ
cartridge
immediately.
o If you are discarding a used BJ cartridge, do so immediately.
o Handle the used BJ cartridge with care to avoid spilling ink on
your hands or clothing.
o If you are switching the color cartridges, store the cartridge you
removed in the SB-60 Ink Cartridge Storage Box. (The storage
box is for the BC-61 or BC-62 only. The BC-60 stays in the
printer at all times.)
o If necessary, open a new BJ cartridge box. Then remove the cap
and tape.
4
Insert the
new BJ
cartridge.
o If you are inserting a BC-60 Black BJ Cartridge, insert it into the
left side of the cartridge holder.
o If you are inserting a BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge or BC-62 Photo BJ
Cartridge, insert it into the right side of the cartridge holder.
o Insert the BJ cartridge slightly diagonally into the holder. Make sure the
cartridge is aligned with the guides, then press down on the cartridge at the
circle mark to lock it in place.
5
Press the
CARTRIDGE
button once.
Then close

discard it
immediately.
o For the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge, always use a BCI-61 Color BJ
tank; for the BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge, always use a BCI-62
Photo BJ tank.
o Handle the used BJ tank with care to avoid spilling ink on your
hands, floor, furniture, or clothing. Empty color BJ tanks cannot
be refilled. Always discard them immediately.
o If a BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge is installed, you must replace the old
BJ tank with a new BJ tank for the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge.
o If a BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge is installed, you must replace the
old BJ tank with a new BJ tank for the BC-62 Photo BJ Cartridge.
o If you replace the BJ tank for the BC-61 Color BJ Cartridge or BC62 Photo BJ Cartridge with the wrong type of color BJ tank, the
printer may malfunction.
