Important Notes on Safety
Choosing a Place for Your Printer
■
Do not place the printer near volatile liquids, such as
alcohol or paint thinner.
Volatile liquids coming in contact with the electrical
components inside the printer may result in fire or
electrical shock.
■
Do not place the printer on an unstable or vibrating
surface.
If the printer falls or tips over, it may be damaged or
cause injury.
■
Avoid placing the printer in humid or dusty areas,
direct sunlight, and areas of high temperature or
excessive heat.
Doing so can result in fire or electrical shock.
■
Do not place the printer on thick rugs or carpets.
Carpet fibers or dust entering the printer can result in
fire or electrical shock.
1-2
Introduction
Chapter 1
■
To avoid electrical shock, make sure your hands are dry
before plugging in the power cord.
■
Make sure you insert the plug all the way into the
power outlet.
Loose connections can result in fire or electrical shock.
■
Attempting to use a power cord or AC adapter other
than those provided can result in fire or electrical
shock.
Do not use the printer’s power cord and AC adapter
with any other machine.
■
Avoid damaging, modifying, pulling, or excessively
bending the AC adapter and power cord. Do not place
heavy objects on top of the power cord.

Supplying Power to the Printer
1-3
■
Do not use the power cord if it is tied or knotted.
Doing so may result in fire or electrical shock.
■
If you notice smoke or any strange odor coming from
your printer, immediately turn off the power and
unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Continuing to use the printer under these conditions
may cause fire or electrical shock. Contact the Canon
Customer Care Center.
■
When removing the power cord, make sure you pull on
the plug, and not on the cord.
Pulling on the cord can damage it, possibly resulting in
fire or electrical shock.
■
Do not place any object next to the power outlet that
would prevent you from pulling out the power cord.
In emergencies, fire or electrical shock could result if you
are unable to pull out the plug quickly.
■
The printer is designed for use with AC 120 V.
Using it with any other voltage can result in fire or
electrical shock. Please use with a power source that
meets these conditions:
Voltage: AC 120 V
Frequency: 60 Hz

Introduction
Chapter 1
■
Do not use items such as flammable sprays near the
printer.
If gas from the spray contacts electrical components
inside the printer, fire or electrical shock may result.
■
Do not disassemble or alter the printer in any way.
The printer includes high voltage components that
can cause fire or electrical shock.
■
When moving the printer, be sure to hold it so that
the front side is angled up away from the floor.
Otherwise, the paper output tray may fall out of the
printer and be damaged.
■
Do not place paper clips, staples, other metal objects,
or bottles that contain liquid or volatile substances
(such as alcohol or paint thinner) on the printer.
Fire or electrical shock can result if they fall or spill
inside the printer.
■
If foreign objects (such as metal objects or liquids)
fall or spill inside the printer, turn off the printer,
unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet,
and contact the Canon Customer Care Center.
Continuing to use the printer under these conditions
can result in fire or electrical shock.

Maintaining the Printer
■
When cleaning, use a damp cloth. Do not use volatile
liquids such as alcohol, benzene, or paint thinner.
Such substances can cause fire or electrical shock if
they contact electrical components inside the printer.
■
Before cleaning the printer, turn off the power and
unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
If you leave the printer plugged in and accidentally
turn the power on, the parts inside the printer will
start to move and you could be injured.
Handling the BJ Cartridge
■
For safety reasons, always store BJ cartridges and
ink tanks out of reach of children.
In case of accidental ink ingestion, consult a
physician immediately.
■
Do not drop or shake BJ cartridges.
If spilled, the ink will stain objects and clothing.
■
After printing, do not touch the metallic portion
of the BJ cartridge.
This part of the cartridge becomes hot during
printing and can cause burns.

Supplies and Accessories
If supplies are not available from your local dealer, you can order directly from Canon by
calling 1-800-671-1090.
Canon has more engineers dedicated to creating quality ink for providing the
best results for output on Bubble Jet printers 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 once that particular
damage has been properly repaired.
For optimum printing results, Canon recommends that you use only Canon
BJ cartridges and ink tanks.

The BJ cartridge contains the print head (where the ink comes out) and the ink
tanks. When the ink runs out, replace only the ink tank.
Follow these guidelines when using a BJ cartridge.
■
Keep the BJ cartridge in its sealed container until
you are ready to use it.
■
Do not attempt to disassemble the BJ cartridge.
■
Do not touch the print head or circuit board
surface.
■
Do not drop, bump, or subject the BJ cartridge to
any type of hard impact.
Print Head
Circuit Board Surface
■
Do not place BJ cartridges in direct sunlight or in
hot and humid areas.
■
When placing the BJ cartridge on hard surfaces, such as a desk, place the cartridge
with the print head facing up.
■
Dispose of used BJ cartridges according to the rules and regulations in your area.
■
Do not use BJ cartridges that have been used in other printers. If you do so, the
LOW INK light function will not work properly.
Chapter 2
Using BJ Cartridges
2-1
Using BJ Cartridges
You can use the following BJ cartridges with the LR1:
If Printing Is Unclear or Colors Are Missing
If your printing is unclear or colors are missing, one of the following may be the reason:
■
The BJ cartridge print head nozzles are clogged.
■
An ink tank is empty.
If printing becomes unclear or colors are missing, print the Nozzle Check Pattern to
determine whether each nozzle in the print head is operating correctly. If the print head is
clogged, perform the print head cleaning procedure. If the print head is operating
properly, replace the ink tank.
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Make sure paper is loaded in the paper supply tray.
Important! Paper must be loaded in the paper supply tray! You cannot print a
Nozzle Check Pattern when using manual paper feed. The paper in the manual
feed slot will be ejected.
If the printer is on, turn it off.
Press and hold the POWER button until you hear four beeps, then release
the button.
The printer loads paper and prints the Nozzle Check Pattern. (If the printer has
not been used in awhile, the printer cleans the print head before loading paper.)
2-2
Using BJ Cartridges
Chapter 2
A normal Nozzle Check Pattern looks like this:

If the print head nozzles are clogged, some horizontal lines will have a broken appearance.
If this happens, clean the print head.
If the ink tank is empty, some colors will not print. If some colors do not print even after
you have done the print head cleaning, replace the ink tank.
If the problem persists, try replacing the BJ cartridge.
Avoid the following operations which can cause print heads to clog:
■
Storing BJ cartridges that have been removed from the printer in an unsealed
Ink Cartridge Storage Box. (To purchase an Ink Cartridge Storage Box, call
1-800-671-1090.)
■
Touching the print head with your fingers.
■
Placing the print head directly on any surface, such as a desk.
■
Pulling out the power cord while the BJ cartridge access cover is open. This allows
air to get into the print head and causes drying.

Cleaning the Print Head
The LR1 is equipped with two print head cleaning functions: normal print head cleaning
and a more powerful deep print head cleaning.
Only execute deep print head cleaning when the print quality does not improve after
executing normal print head cleaning.
Perform print head cleaning only when necessary; unnecessary and repetitious
print head cleaning wastes ink. Deep print head cleaning consumes a
particularly large amount of ink.
Normal Print Head Cleaning
Make sure the printer is turned on.
The green POWER light is on.
Press and hold the RESUME/CLEAN button until you hear two beeps, then
release the button.
Cleaning begins. The BUSY light flashes during cleaning. When cleaning is
finished, the BUSY light goes out.
Print a Nozzle Check Pattern (see page 2-2).
If broken lines appear, repeat the above operation two or three times. If broken
lines still appear in the Nozzle Check Pattern, execute deep print head cleaning.

Deep Print Head Cleaning
Make sure the printer is turned on.
Press and hold the RESUME/CLEAN button until you hear two beeps, wait for
one more beep, then release the button.
It takes approximately 3 seconds for the third beep to sound after the first two
beeps. Be careful not to release the button until you hear the third beep.

You can install any combination of BCI-11 and high-capacity BCI-18 ink tanks
in a BC-11e Color BJ Cartridge. However, you cannot install both a BCI-11 Black
and a BCI-18 Black Ink Tank in the cartridge.
For safety reasons, always store ink tanks out of reach of children. If ink is
accidentally ingested, consult a physician immediately. (The ink contains
isopropyl alcohol 67-63-0.)
Do not drop or shake BJ cartridges or ink tanks. If spilled, the ink will stain
objects and clothing.
■
Perform ink tank replacement operations promptly, and do not leave ink tanks
lying around after removing them from the LR1.
■
Always replace empty ink tanks with new ones. If you install an ink tank that has
already been used, the print head may become clogged, and the LOW INK light
function will not work properly.
■
To ensure freshness of ink tanks, use them within one year of purchase. Also, it’s a
good idea to change an ink tank if it has not been used within six months of the
time it was put in the printer.
■
Do not open the sealed container that the ink tank comes in until you are ready
to use the ink tank.
■
Do not refill the ink tanks.
■
The ink is water-soluble. Keep water and other liquids out of contact with prints,
as the ink may run.

Replacing the BJ Cartridge
You can use the following BJ cartridges with the LR1:
■
BC-11e Color BJ Cartridge for normal color printing (provided)
■
BC-10 Black BJ Cartridge for printing large volumes of black and white (optional)
■
BC-12e Photo BJ Cartridge for printing photos in high quality color (optional)
When switching BJ cartridges, store the unused cartridge in the SB-11 Ink
Cartridge Storage Box. If you do not store an opened cartridge in the
Ink Cartridge Storage Box, the ink will dry, rendering the cartridge unusable.

Maintaining the Printer
This section describes printer maintenance and cautions for transporting the printer.
Printer Maintenance
When maintaining the printer, always follow these precautions:
When caring for your printer, turn the power off, and unplug the power cord from
the electrical outlet. If you do not unplug the printer and you accidentally turn the
power on, the parts inside the printer will start to move and you could be injured.
■
Do not use flammable solvents, such as paint thinner, benzene, or alcohol. They can
result in fire or electrical shock.
■
Do not unplug the power cord from the power outlet while the POWER light is on or
flashing. This may damage the printer.
■
Do not use paper towels or tissue to clean the inside of the printer. Paper particles
remaining inside the printer will stick to the print head and cause a blockage in the
nozzle. Use a soft cloth.
■
Be careful that no liquids, such as water, enter the printer unit. This may damage the
printer.
■
When cleaning inside the printer, be careful not to bend or pull the film cable. This
may damage the printer.

Specifications
Appendix A
Glossary
Automatic feed
Refers to one way in which paper can be fed into the printer when the paper supply tray
is used.
BJ cartridge
The printing mechanism that contains the print head unit and ink tanks.
Bubble Jet printing
CMYK
Acronym for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black; the four colors used in the standard color
model of the printing industry. Refers to a method of specifying color using CMYK color
values. (K is used for black because B is used to represent blue in RGB.)
dB(A)
Stands for decibel level (a decibel being a unit of measurement for the intensity of the
sound coming from the printer), adjusted for background noise.
dpi
Dots per inch. A unit of measurement for indicating a printer’s resolution. Your printer
can produce a resolution up to 720 dpi (horizontal) by 360 dpi (vertical).
Ink Cartridge Storage Box
A box for storing a BJ cartridge. A BJ cartridge removed from the printer must be stored
inside this container to prevent the print head of the cartridge from drying and clogging.
Interface
The connection between two devices that makes it possible for them to communicate
with each other. This printer features both a parallel and a USB interface.
Manual feed
A method of feeding paper to the printer one sheet at a time.
Noise level
See dB(A).
Glossary
G-1
Glossary
An ink jet type of printing that heats the ink to a boiling point in a nozzle to form a
bubble. When the bubble expands, there is no room left in the nozzle for the ink and the
ink is projected onto paper.
Parallel interface
An interface that transmits multiple bits simultaneously (usually in one-byte segments).
Your printer has a built-in, Centronics-type parallel interface with bi-directional
capability. See also Interface.
Platen
Printer component that holds the paper in position during ink transfer.
Print head
The printing mechanism that contains print nozzles and ejects the ink for printing.
Print head capping
An automatic protection function that prevents the print head unit and BJ cartridges
from drying out or becoming clogged with dust.
Printable area
The area of a sheet of paper on which a printer can reproduce text or graphics (the
printing area is smaller than the paper). On this printer, the printing area varies
depending on the type of paper being used.
Printer driver
Software that sends printing instructions to a printer. The printer driver keeps track of the
attributes of a printer and the codes the program must send to access those attributes.
RAM
Random Access Memory. Printer memory that is used for temporary storage of
information you want to print and downloaded fonts.
Resolution
The density of dots for any given output device. Expressed in terms of dots per inch (dpi).
Low resolution causes font characters and graphics to have a jagged appearance. Higher
resolution means smoother curves and angles as well as a better match to traditional
typeface designs. Resolution values are represented by horizontal data and vertical data,
for example, 360 × 360 dpi. This printer can produce output with resolutions up to
720 × 360 dpi precision.
RGB
An acronym for Red, Green, and Blue; the three primary colors used in the additive
process to form a wide spectrum of colors.
