Although this equipment can use either loop disconnect or DTMF signalling,
only the performance of the DTMF signalling is subject to regulatory
requirements for correct operation. It is therefore strongly recommended that
the equipment is set to use DTMF signalling for access to public or private
emergency services. DTMF signalling also provides faster call set up.

The Main Features of the MultiPASS C50
The MultiPASS C50 is a complete multifunction system for your home or small
office. The MultiPASS C50 combines the following essential office machines into
a single, convenient desktop unit:
J Plain-Paper Fax Machine
J Colour Printer
J Colour Copier
J Colour Scanner
J PC Fax
J Telephone*
Your MultiPASS C50 also includes the MultiPASS Desktop Manager for
WindowsH, version 2.50. This exclusive Canon software package provides you
with a ”PC Fax” – you can print, fax, scan, and use the telephone from within
your PC’s Windows environment.
The MultiPASS C50’s multitasking ability enables you to perform a number of
operations simultaneously. For example, you can print, scan a document, or make
copies at the same time you are sending a fax or receiving a fax into memory.
The compact size of the MultiPASS C50 (400 mm wide by 365 mm long by 205
mm high) makes it ideal for desktop use, and lets you use it in places where other
machines might not fit.
*Requires the optional handset, a telephone or an answering machine.

Plain Paper Fax Features
UHQTM Image Processing System
The MultiPASS C50 uses Canon’s Ultra-High Quality Image Processing System
to provide enhanced definition in faxed photos.
Error Correction Mode (ECM)
Using the MultiPASS C50’s Error Correction Mode reduces transmission errors
when sending faxes to or receiving faxes from other fax machines that also have
ECM capability.
Automatic switching between fax and voice calls
The MultiPASS C50 can automatically distinguish between fax calls and normal
telephone calls, so that you can receive both through a single phone line.
Answering machine connection
You can connect an answering machine to the MultiPASS C50 to let it receive
telephone messages and faxes while you are away from your desk.
Transmission speed
The MultiPASS C50 uses G3 data encoding methods that increase transmission
speed to approximately 6 seconds* per page.
Memory sending/receiving
The MultiPASS C50 can store up to 42 fax pages* (either received or to be sent)
in its built-in memory, and can receive faxes while printing or even when your PC
is turned off.
Reduced-size printing
The MultiPASS C50 automatically scales received faxes to fit the size of the
paper loaded into the sheet feeder. So if your client is sending you a fax on lettersize paper and you have A4-size paper in your sheet feeder, the fax will be scaled
and printed on A4-size paper.
Automatic dialling and broadcasting
To make faxing even easier, the MultiPASS C50 provides several automatic
dialling methods: coded speed dialling, one-touch speed dialling, and group
dialling. The MultiPASS C50 also enables you to broadcast faxes or send delayed
faxes to as many as 57 locations at once.
Point-and-click dialling
The MultiPASS Desktop Manager enables you to select a fax number and dial
directly from your PC’s screen with a simple click of the mouse.

size. This allows you to copy legal-size documents onto A4-size paper, for
example.
Telephone Features
Automatic dialling
The MultiPASS C50’s three automatic dialling methods (one-touch speed
dialling, coded speed dialling, and group dialling) can be used to store phone and
fax numbers, for easy and efficient calling.
Connection for the optional handset, extension telephone, or answering machine
Connecting the optional handset or a telephone to the MultiPASS C50 lets you
use it to make and receive normal telephone calls. In addition, connecting an
answering machine allows you to receive faxes and phone messages while you are
away from your desk.
Point-and-click dialling
The MultiPASS Desktop Manager enables you to select a phone number and dial
directly from your PC’s screen with a simple click of the mouse.

Supplies and Options
Your MultiPASS C50 uses Canon’s Bubble Jet (BJ) cartridges and ink tanks,
print media, and optional equipment, all designed to work with your MultiPASS
C50 to help you produce the finest output possible. These supplies are available
from your local authorised Canon dealer.
BJ Print Cartridges and Ink Tanks
The MultiPASS C50 uses Canon’s BJ (Bubble Jet) cartridges to provide you with
first-rate, crisp print and vibrant colours.
Canon’s BJ cartridges use advanced ink formulas that dry quickly, look great on
plain paper, are not easily affected by light, and resist smudging extremely well.
In addition, the print heads in the BJ cartridges cap themselves automatically
when not in use, thus saving ink by keeping the print heads from drying out.
BJ print cartridges are also easy to maintain. If your BC-21/21e Colour BJ
Cartridge runs out of ink, just replace the empty ink tank (black or colour). If the
BC-20 Black Cartridge, BC-22/22e Photo Colour Cartridge, or BC-29F
Fluorescent BJ Cartridge runs out of ink, just replace the entire cartridge.
To avoid printing problems, use only Canon BJ print cartridges and ink tanks.
Other cartridges can produce unsatisfactory results. In addition, use only BCI-21
Black and BCI-21 Colour ink tanks in the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge.
Special Print Media
You can use plain paper with the MultiPASS C50 for excellent colour, and black
and white printing, but Canon has also developed a wide range of print media to
extend your printing capabilities. See ”Selecting the Print Media” on page 2-37
for detailed descriptions of these media.
If you plan to use a print medium other than those made by Canon, be sure to
test it in your MultiPASS C50 before ordering it in bulk. If you have any
questions about whether a particular medium is suitable for your MultiPASS C50,
please contact your local authorised Canon dealer.

as an air conditioner, computer, electric typewriter, or copier. These devices
generate electrical noise, which can interfere with the MultiPASS C50’s
operation.
J Make sure nothing is laying on the power cord, and that the cord cannot be
walked on or tripped over.
J Do not overload the electrical outlet. Make sure the total amperage used by
all the machines plugged into the outlet does not exceed the ampere rating of
the outlet’s circuit breaker.
J Make sure the operation panel of the MultiPASS C50 is properly closed, and
that there are no documents in this area.
Connect the power cord as follows:

Selecting and Installing a BJ Cartridge
Canon offers a number of Bubble Jet (BJ) cartridges to meet a wide range of
printing requirements. This section describes how to select the best BJ cartridge
for your needs, as well as how to install and maintain the cartridge.
The MultiPASS C50 comes with one BC-20 Black BJ cartridge and one BC-21 or
BC-21e Colour BJ cartridge.
Guidelines for Using and Maintaining BJ Cartridges
The most important thing you can do to ensure the best possible print quality, as
well as extend the life of your MultiPASS C50, is to take care of the MultiPASS
C50’s BJ cartridges following these guidelines:
J Store cartridges at room temperature.
J Keep cartridges in their sealed containers until you are ready to use them.
J Install the cartridge immediately after removing its print head cap and
protective tape.
J Always use the cartridge within one year of unpacking it.
J When changing cartridges, always store the unused cartridge in the SB-21 BJ
cartridge container that comes with the MultiPASS C50.
J Do not remove the cartridge from the MultiPASS C50 unless necessary.
The ink in the BJ cartridges is difficult to clean up if spilled. To avoid spilling ink,
always be sure to follow these precautions when handling the cartridges:
J Do not attempt to disassemble or refill the cartridge.
J Do not shake or drop the cartridge, or tip the print head downwards.
J Keep BJ cartridges out of children’s reach.

Hold the BJ cartridge by its sides only. Do not touch the print head, the sharp
edges around the print head, the silver plate on the bottom of the cartridge, or
the silver metal or circuit area on its side.
PRINT HEAD
J Make sure the BJ cartridge holder is in its home position (on the right side of
the unit) when you are not using the MultiPASS C50. If it is not in its home
position, press the CARTRIDGE button. Leaving it out of its home position
will dry out the print head on the cartridge.
J Clean the print head when print quality is no longer satisfactory. See
”Cleaning and Testing the BJ Cartridge Print Head” on page 9-9 for
instructions. If the print quality does not improve after five consecutive
cleanings, replace the ink tank or BJ cartridge.
J Do not use a BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge with either of its ink tanks
missing. Doing so can cause it to clog.
J Do not remove the ink tanks from the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge
unnecessarily, or the ink in them may clog.
J Never attempt to refill an empty cartridge.

Choosing the Best Cartridge
Canon offers several BJ print cartridges and ink tanks for use in the MultiPASS
C50. (BJ print cartridges contain the BJ print head and ink, while BJ ink tanks
contain only ink.) Use the following descriptions to decide which type of
cartridge best suits your particular needs.
To avoid printing problems, use only the BC-20 or BC-21/21e BJ cartridges for
normal printing. The BC-22/22e Photo Colour BJ Cartridge (sold separately) is
for printing photo-realistic colour images. Other cartridges can produce
unsatisfactory results. In addition, use only BCI-21 Black and BCI-21 Colour ink
tanks in the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge.
BC-20 Black BJ Cartridge
This cartridge incorporates a BJ print head and black ink in
a single unit. The BC-20 can be used if most of your
printing is black, e.g. for receiving faxes, making copies, and
monochrome printing. It can print twice as fast as a colour
cartridge, and at higher resolution.
BC-21/21e Colour BJ Cartridge
The BC-21/21e incorporates a BJ print head and two
replaceable ink tanks (a BCI-21 Black and a BCI-21
Colour). Use this cartridge when printing in colour.
BCI-21 Black ink tank
Purchase this ink tank from your local Canon dealer as the
black ink runs out of the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge.
BCI-21 Colour ink tank
Purchase this ink tank from your local Canon dealer as the
colour ink runs out of the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge.

The MultiPASS C50 cannot print incoming faxes or make copies while the
BC-22/22e or BC-29F cartridge is installed. This is an ink-saving feature: because
the BC-22/22e and BC-29F are single units (and do not have ink tanks that can
be replaced separately), using them to print faxes will use the black ink faster,
using up the cartridges while they still have a considerable amount of colour ink
remaining.

Use the SB-21 to store an extra BJ cartridge in a
convenient location, while keeping it from drying out.

Selecting and Loading the Print Media
The MultiPASS C50 can provide sharp black or vibrant colour printing on a wide
variety of media, including A4, letter, and legal plain paper, glossy paper,
envelopes, transparencies, back print film (for display on a backlit device), and
fabric sheets.
Whenever you change the size of the paper in the MultiPASS C50, you must also
use the MultiPASS Desktop Manager to set the MultiPASS C50 to use the new
size. For instructions, see the MultiPASS Desktop Manager User’s Guide.
Selecting the Print Media
The following describes a variety of media you can use with your MultiPASS C50.
Be sure to test the medium you intend to use before ordering it in bulk. If you
have any questions about whether a particular medium is suitable for your
MultiPASS C50, please contact your local authorised Canon dealer. For complete
paper specifications, see ”Printer” on page A-6.
Please note that not all print media mentioned here may be available in your
country. Contact your local authorised Canon dealer for more information on
product availability.
Plain Media
Plain paper
The MultiPASS C50 produces letter-quality print on most plain bond paper,
including cotton bond and photocopy paper. It can use A4, letter, or legal sizes.
The paper must be less than 0.2 mm thick, and have a weight of 64-90 g/m2.
You can also use paper weighing 90-105 g/m2 by manually feeding sheets, one at a
time.

Canon Media
Canon provides the following media, all specifically developed to extend the
printing capability of your MultiPASS C50. For details or purchase, contact your
local authorised Canon dealer.
Canon Bubble Jet Paper LC-301 (water resistant)
This water-resistant paper is specially developed for colour printing with Canon
Colour BJ printers such as the MultiPASS C50. Images printed on LC-301 paper
are bright and vivid, and will not run if liquid is spilled on them. Images printed
on this paper stand up to normal office highlighters, unlike images printed on
other papers.
Canon High-Resolution Paper HR-101
This paper is designed to produce near-photographic quality print output, with
sharp, vivid graphics and photographs. You must use this paper when printing
with the BC-22/22e Photo Colour BJ Cartridge. When using HR-101 paper, be
sure to print on the whiter side of the sheets, and after printing a pack of this
paper, use the cleaning sheet provided with it to clean the printer roller.
Canon Transparencies CF-102
These overhead transparencies are specially designed for Canon BJ colour
printers. Use these clear transparencies to produce crisp and professional
overhead presentations. Do not use normal transparencies in the MultiPASS C50,
as they do not absorb ink and can cause the ink to run.
Canon Back Print Film BF-102
This unique mylar-based translucent sheet allows you to print high-quality colour
output – including photographs and graphics – that you can view with a rear
illumination device such as a light box. This gives you sharp, bright, vivid images
you can use in meetings, trade shows, and other presentations.
If you are printing from an application outside Windows, your application or
printer driver must support mirror image printing in order to use back print film.

Canon High-Gloss Film HG-101
This is a high-grade gloss film that lets you create sharper and more vivid colour
output than is possible with coated paper. This film provides the best colour print
quality for the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge. Use this film for trade show
displays or other special presentations, and when printing at 720 × 360 dpi
resolution.
Fabric Sheets FS-101
These white cotton fabric sheets are specifically designed for Canon BJ Colour
printers, and enable you to print your own designs for cross stitch, pillows,
holiday stockings, and other craft projects.
T-Shirt Transfers TR-101
This special sheet allows you to print your own designs and transfer them to any
cotton or cotton/polyester blend t-shirt, sweatshirt, apron, tote bag, or other
fabric item.
Be sure to select Back Print Film Option when printing on the TR-101 T-Shirt
Transfers. See the MultiPASS Desktop Manager User’s Guide for instructions.

Loading the Print Media
Keep the following in mind when selecting or loading media for your MultiPASS
C50:
J You can stack plain paper, envelopes, and other media in the MultiPASS
C50’s sheet feeder. The maximum size of the stack depends on the medium:
Medium
Plain paper
Envelopes
Transparencies
Back print film
Maximum stack size
100 sheets
(maximum 10 mm stack height)
10 envelopes
50 sheets
10 sheets
J To avoid paper jams and poor print quality, never try to print on damp, curled,
wrinkled, or torn paper.
J Store paper and other media flat, and leave it in its wrapper until you are
ready to use it. Store unused paper from opened packs in the original packing
in a cool, dry location.
J Store paper at 18!-24!C, 40%-60% relative humidity.
J If you have trouble with sheets skewing, double-feeding, or jamming when
using coated paper, transparencies, or back print film in the sheet feeder, use
manual feeding instead. (These problems are more common at cooler
temperatures.)
J Let the paper run out before you refill the sheet feeder. Avoid mixing ”new”
paper with paper remaining in the sheet feeder.
J Use cut-sheet paper only, not paper that comes on a roll (like fax paper).
J When using graph paper, the lines may not match because the 4.23 mm line
spacing of the MultiPASS C50 is slightly less than that of graph paper.
J 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.
J Do not use paper that is thicker than specified for the MultiPASS C50.
Printing with a paper that is thick enough to come in contact with the print
head nozzles may damage the BJ cartridge. For complete paper specifications,
see ”Printer” on page A-6.

Using the Paper Output Guides with the BC-22/22e and
BC-29F Cartridges
When printing with the BC-22/22e Photo Colour or BC-29F BJ Fluorescent
cartridge on HR-101 high-resolution paper, you should use the guides on the
MultiPASS C50’s paper output tray to help support the document as it exits the
unit. This will keep the sheet from sagging and pulling through the unit as it exits,
which can lead to poor print quality.
1. Raise both paper output guides until they are vertical.
J Always raise both paper output guides.
J Always use the paper output guides when printing on HR-101 high resolution
paper, even when using the BC-20 or BC-21/21e cartridges.
2. When you finish using the BC-22/22e or BC-29F cartridge, return the paper
output guides to their original position.
When the paper output guides are raised, the output tray can hold a maximum of
20 sheets. Always lower the paper output guides when using the MultiPASS C50
as a fax machine, or they can cause the faxes to pile up and jam.

The MultiPASS C50 Settings
To customise the MultiPASS C50 to your particular needs, you can adjust general
operation, sending, receiving, and speed dialling settings. There are two methods
of customising these settings:
Method 1: Using the MultiPASS Desktop Manager
The MultiPASS Desktop Manager software included with your MultiPASS C50
enables you to adjust settings for the MultiPASS C50 from your PC. For a list of
the adjustable settings, see below, and for detailed instructions on setting these
options, refer to the MultiPASS Desktop Manager User’s Guide.
Method 2: Using the MultiPASS C50 operation panel
Some of the settings that can be adjusted from the MultiPASS Desktop Manager
can also be adjusted directly from the MultiPASS C50 operation panel. Adjusting
these settings through the operation panel is convenient when you do not have
your MultiPASS C50 connected to a PC. Also, certain settings can only be set
from the operation panel.
We recommend that settings that can be adjusted from both the MultiPASS
Desktop Manager and the operation panel be set using the MultiPASS Desktop
Manager. Using the MultiPASS Desktop Manager enables you to customise more
settings. In addition, changes made via the MultiPASS Desktop Manager will
override any corresponding settings made directly from the operation panel, and
changes made to settings via the operation panel will not be displayed in the
MultiPASS Desktop Manager.
List of Settings
The following pages list the settings that can be adjusted from the MultiPASS
Desktop Manager as well as those adjustable directly from the MultiPASS C50
operation panel. For details on adjusting settings via the operation panel, refer to
the page number indicated. For instructions on adjusting settings using the
MultiPASS Desktop Manager, refer to the MultiPASS Desktop Manager User’s

Testing the MultiPASS C50
After you have assembled your MultiPASS C50, installed a BJ cartridge, loaded
the print media, and entered your user identification information, you can make
sure the MultiPASS C50 is printing properly by making several copies of a
document. For instructions, see ”Making Copies” on page 6-13.
J If you are printing on plain paper, note the following:
I
If the printed sheets are curled as they exit the MultiPASS C50, remove
them from the output tray immediately to avoid paper jams.
I
Make sure your text or graphics fall within the printable area.
I
If the print head is printing past the edge of the paper and directly on the
platen, clean the platen. See ”Cleaning the MultiPASS C50’s Interior” on
page 9-2.
J If you are printing on transparencies or back print film, note the following:
2-74
I
Remove each sheet of film after it exits from the unit. Do not let film
stack up on the output tray.
I
Allow printed film to dry before storing it. (Canon film needs about 15
minutes to dry properly.)
I
After the film dries, cover each printed side with a sheet of plain paper
before storing. This is necessary even if you put the film in a clear file.

Preparing to Send a Fax
Before you can send a fax, you need to load the document into the MultiPASS
C50’s Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). For instructions and information
about the types of documents the MultiPASS C50 can scan, see ”Types of
Documents You Can Scan” on page 6-2.
Setting the Resolution and Contrast
Setting the Scanning Resolution
Canon’s Ultra High Quality (UHQTM) imaging technology enables you to send
faxes with a print quality that is very close to that of the original document. The
MultiPASS C50 also lets you adjust the resolution it uses in sending faxes to best
suit your particular document.
The MultiPASS C50 has three resolution settings:
J STANDARD resolution (8 pels/mm × 3.85 lines/mm) is adequate for most
text documents.
J FINE resolution (8 pels/mm × 7.7 lines/mm) is suitable for documents with
fine print (smaller than the print in this sentence).
J PHOTO resolution (8 pels/mm × 7.7 lines/mm, with halftones) is for
documents that contain photographs. With this setting, areas of the document
that contain photos are automatically scanned with 64 levels of grey, rather
than just two (black and white). This gives a much better reproduction of the
photos, though transmission time is longer.
Set the resolution as follows:
RESOLUTION
1. Press RESOLUTION.
J The LCD display shows the current scanning resolution.
STANDARD
When the RESOLUTION button is pressed, the LCD display shows the current
resolution for about five seconds before returning to standby mode.

Setting the Scanning Contrast
Contrast is the difference in brightness between the lightest and darkest parts of
a printed document. You can adjust the contrast the MultiPASS C50 uses for
sending faxes (DARKER, STANDARD, or LIGHTER) through the operation
panel of the MultiPASS C50 or through the MultiPASS Desktop Manager.
STANDARD is the default, and is adequate for most documents. To darken a
light original, choose DARKER; to lighten a dark original, use LIGHTER.

Sending Methods
Manual Sending Via the Handset
Use manual sending via the handset if you want to speak with the other party
before sending a fax to them. With manual sending via the handset, you dial,
converse normally and when they are ready to receive your fax, press the
(START/COPY) button to begin sending. See page 4-8 for more details on
manual sending via the handset.
Memory Sending
Memory sending allows you to send a document easily and quickly. This method
of sending scans the document into memory, and as the first page of a multipage
document is being scanned, the MultiPASS C50 already begins calling the other
party and transmitting the information even as the remaining pages are being
scanned.
To use memory sending, you load the document, dial the fax number and press
(START/COPY) button. See page 4-10 for more details on memory
the
sending.
Since the MultiPASS C50 is multitasking, you can even scan a document into the
memory while sending a document, receiving a document, or printing a
document.

Sending Documents
This section describes how to send faxes with the MultiPASS C50.
Manual Sending via the Handset
If you have the optional handset or an extension phone connected to your
MultiPASS C50, you can send faxes manually. This allows you to talk to the other
party before sending the fax, which can be useful if the other party uses a single
line for both voice and fax transmissions.
Be sure to adjust the document feed lever before loading your document. See
page 6-5 for details.
1. Prepare the document and load it, face down, into the Automatic Document
Feeder (ADF).
J Once the document is loaded, the LCD display shows the following:
MEMORY USED
0%
(Currently used image memory)
STANDARD
(Current resolution)
DOCUMENT READY
(Standby to scan)
J If necessary, you can adjust the resolution and contrast. See page 4-3 for
details.

Memory Sending
Memory sending is a quick and easy way to send a fax. When you use memory
sending, the MultiPASS C50 scans the document into its memory as it dials the
fax number. If the line is free, the MultiPASS C50 begins sending the fax as it
scans the rest of the document.
The MultiPASS C50 has enough memory to store up to 42 pages (fewer if the
document contains many graphics or particularly dense text).
Since the MultiPASS C50 is a multitasking device, you can use memory sending
to scan one document into memory and at the same time send another fax,
receive a fax, or print a document. Follow the instructions below to send a
document with memory sending:
Be sure to adjust the document feed lever before loading your document. See
page 6-5 for details.
1. Prepare the document and load it, face down, into the Automatic Document
Feeder (ADF).
J Once the document is loaded, the LCD display shows the following:

J If necessary, you can adjust the resolution and contrast. See page 4-3 for

J You may not be able to use memory sending if the percentage shown in
the MEMORY USED display is close to 100%. In this case, use manual
sending via the handset to send your document.

Different Ways to Receive a Fax
The MultiPASS C50 provides you with four different modes for receiving faxes.
To decide which mode will best suit your requirements, consider how you want to
use the MultiPASS C50:
J Fax/Tel Mode: Use this mode if you will occasionally use the MultiPASS C50
as a telephone. In this mode, if an incoming call is a fax, the MultiPASS C50
then receives fax calls automatically, without ringing; if the call is from a
person, the MultiPASS C50 rings to alert you to pick up the handset to answer
the call. This mode is economical, in that it allows you to have phone and fax
service without the expense of an additional phone line.
This mode also includes settings that let you control precisely how it handles
incoming calls. For details and instructions, see the MultiPASS Desktop
Manager User’s Guide.
J MANUAL MODE: Use this mode if you will frequently use the MultiPASS
C50 as a telephone and want to answer every call yourself, including fax calls.
The MultiPASS C50 then rings for every call, whether phone or fax, and you
(START/COPY) button to begin receiving a fax.
must press the
J FAX ONLY MODE: Use this mode if the MultiPASS C50 will be connected
to a separate telephone line used only for transmitting faxes. The MultiPASS
C50 answers all calls, but accepts only those from fax machines and
disconnects all others.
J ANS. MACHINE MODE: Use this mode if you plan to connect an answering
machine to the MultiPASS C50 to receive faxes and phone messages. The
MultiPASS C50 then receives incoming faxes normally, and routes incoming
phone calls to the answering machine.
Once you have decided which mode you want, set the mode as described in
”Setting the Receive Mode” on page 5-3. You can change the mode at any time.
The MultiPASS C50 also offers these additional features to let you customise its
function to suit your needs:
J The MultiPASS Desktop Manager allows you to receive faxes directly into
your PC, where they will be stored as scanned images.
J The MultiPASS C50’s Error Correction Mode (ECM) corrects damaged data
caused by line errors when receiving from a fax machine that also has ECM
capability.
See the MultiPASS Desktop Manager User’s Guide for details on these and other
functions, and instructions on enabling them.

J If the call is from a fax machine, the MultiPASS C50 receives the fax
automatically.
J If the call is a telephone call, the MultiPASS C50 rings to alert you to pick up
the handset. If you do not pick up the handset within 22 seconds, the
MultiPASS C50 stops ringing, checks again to make sure the call is not from a
fax machine, then hangs up. (You can use the MultiPASS Desktop Manager to
change the 22 seconds, increasing the amount of time the MultiPASS C50
rings before it hangs up.)
J Not all fax machines are capable of sending a FAX TONE. For those cases

Using an Answering Machine: ANS. MACHINE MODE
Connecting an answering machine to the MultiPASS C50 allows you to receive
faxes and phone messages while you are out of the office.
In ANS. MACHINE MODE, the MultiPASS C50 allows the answering machine
to answer incoming calls, then listens for a fax tone or for four seconds of silence
(also an indication that a fax is coming in), and automatically receives the fax if it
detects the fax tone or a four-second silence.
For instructions on connecting an answering machine to the MultiPASS C50, see
”Connecting the Optional Handset, a Telephone, or Answering Machine” on
page 2-17.
Canon does not recommend using an ”answering service” (like those offered by
local telephone companies that provide voice mail) on the telephone line you are
connecting to the MultiPASS C50. If you do subscribe to an answering service,
you may want to dedicate a separate line for fax communication only and
connect that line to the MultiPASS C50.
Using the MultiPASS C50 with an Answering Machine
Follow these guidelines in using the MultiPASS C50 with an answering machine:
J Set the answering machine to answer on the first or second ring.
J If the MultiPASS C50 runs out of paper or ink in ANS. MACHINE MODE, it
receives all faxes into memory. The faxes then print automatically when you
add paper or replace the BJ ink cartridge.
J When recording the outgoing message on the answering machine:
I
Leave a four-second pause at the beginning of the message.
I
The entire message, including the four-second pause, must be no more
than 15 seconds long.
I
In the message, tell your callers how to send a fax. For example:
”Hello. I can’t answer the phone right now, but please leave a message
after the beep. I’ll return your call as soon as possible. If you would
like to send a fax, press the start button on your fax machine after you
leave your message. Thank you.”

Scanning Documents
The first step in scanning a document is to load the document into the MultiPASS
C50’s Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). You can then use the MultiPASS
Desktop Manager to scan documents and save the scanned images as .TIF, .BMP,
.PCX, or .DCX files. The MultiPASS C50 can also scan documents directly into
any Windows application with a TWAIN-compatible interface.
Once you have scanned the document, you can use the Desktop Manager to view
the document on your PC’s monitor, as well as save, rotate, print, or copy it to the
PC’s clipboard. You can also process the scanned image using applications such
as Adobe PageMakerH, Adobe PhotoshopH, Zsoft PhotoFinishTM, and Caere
WordScanTM.
This chapter describes the types of documents you can scan and how to load the
documents for scanning. For instructions on faxing a scanned document, see
Chapter 4, ”Sending Faxes.” For instructions on using the MultiPASS Desktop
Manager to scan documents, see the MultiPASS Desktop Manager User’s Guide.
For information on using other applications to scan documents or process images,

Selecting Automatic/Manual Document Feed
The document feed lever allows you to select whether the Automatic Document
Feeder (ADF) feeds documents automatically. If set to automatic document feed,
a multipage document will automatically feed page by page through the
Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). The icons below the document feed lever
show you which setting you should use according to your document: the icon
showing several sheets ( ) is for automatic document feed, and the icon showing
a single sheet ( ) is for manual feed.
Use automatic document feed ( ) for documents that meet the requirements on
page 6-2. However, if you have difficulty sending with this setting, or find that
several sheets feed into the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) at the same
time, try using manual feed ( ).
For documents that do not meet the requirements on page 6-2, use manual
document feed ( ) and load one sheet at a time. These documents include very
thick or thin paper, small documents (postcards, business cards), documents with
uneven surfaces, photos, special types of paper (thick paper with a glossy finish,
for example), and carrier sheets.
In order to protect the surface or your photos and other delicate documents from
being damaged when feeding through the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF),
place the document in a carrier sheet. For details on the carrier sheet, contact
your authorised Canon dealer or the Canon help line.

One of the most important things you can do to achieve the best possible print
quality is to select the best medium for your particular print requirements. See
”Selecting the Print Media,” on page 2-37 for guidelines to help you choose the
right media.
Printing on Envelopes
The MultiPASS C50’s sheet feeder can hold up to 10 envelopes. European DL
envelopes and U.S. Commercial No. 10 (COM10) envelopes are recommended.
You may be able to stack envelopes of other sizes in the sheet feeder, but Canon
cannot guarantee consistent performance on envelope sizes other than DL or
Commercial No. 10.
Avoid printing on any of the following, as they can cause jams or smears, or

Some Advice for Colour Printing
Your Canon MultiPASS C50 is a powerful colour printer. If this is the first time
you have used a colour printer, read this section for some tips on printing with
colour effectively.
Colour lets you strengthen the visual impact of reports, memos, and
presentations. Colour captures your readers’ attention, holds their interest, and
increases their understanding of your message. You do not have to be an artist or
a graphic designer to use colour effectively, but you do need software that
supports colour printing, and you need to spend some time thinking about how
best to use colour to highlight important information. Without careful planning,
you can overuse colour, and actually detract from the document’s content.
Selecting Paper and Other Print Media
Selecting the right print media is crucial for achieving the best possible print
quality. See ”Selecting the Print Media” on page 2-37 for guidelines to help you
choose the right media for your particular print requirements.
If you use coated paper, the colours may print out differently from what you
expect.
Understanding Your Application’s Capabilities
It is important that you know how to correctly use the application you will be
printing from, and its capabilities and limitations for colour printing.
Your MultiPASS C50 can reproduce up to 16.7 million different colours, but the
number you can actually print depends on the application you use. Some
applications have restrictions on how they can use colour: see your application’s
documentation to see if it has any such restrictions.
7-6
Printing From Your PC
Canon
MultiPASS C50 Hardware Manual
Chapter 7
ENGLISH
Your application may also offer a number of colour-control functions, such as
dithering, intensity, or hue:
J Dithering creates colours with patterns of alternating dots. For example, an
alternating red and white dither pattern can create pink.
J Intensity (saturation) lets you adjust the depth of a colour if the printout
appears lighter or darker than the image on the monitor.
J Hue allows you to change a colour’s hue. For example, you can adjust the hue
of red to make it more purple.
For details about these functions, see your application’s documentation.
Understanding Your Computer’s Monitor and Colour
Be sure you know what type of monitor your PC has. Monitors are classified by
their resolution and by the number of different colours they can display. The
following factors can affect how well the colours on your printed page match the
colours displayed on your monitor:
Monitors create the colours they display by combining red, green, and blue at
different intensities. Printers create colours by combining overlaying dots of cyan,
yellow, magenta, and black in a variety of combinations with varying amounts of
ink.
The MultiPASS C50 is optimised to provide the best colour match possible of
printed output with popular monitors. Yet, because monitors and printers use
such different methods to create colour, achieving an accurate match between
your printed image and the image on your monitor can be extremely difficult in
some cases.
To maximise the colour-matching capabilities of your MultiPASS C50, use a 24bit colour monitor and video card. For details about your monitor’s ability to
display colour, see the monitor’s documentation.

Printing From Your PC
Canon
MultiPASS C50 Hardware Manual

Improving Print Speed
The MultiPASS C50 can produce a full spectrum of up to 16.7 million colours.
When printing with black ink only, the driver only has to process information for
one colour. When printing in colour, however, the MultiPASS C50 has to process
significantly more information and prints more slowly.
To improve colour printing speed, try the following:
J Increase the amount of RAM in your computer.
J Use a computer with a faster processor.
J Use only one application at a time, and turn off any screen savers or other
memory-resident applications.
J Limit the number of colours you use.
J Use smaller graphics and more white space in your documents.
J When printing presentation graphics, use only the MultiPASS C50’s primary
colours: black, cyan, magenta, and yellow.
J Use Draft mode printing when not producing a final copy.
J Use plain paper and set the Media Type to Plain Paper on your PC. This sets

Controlling Printing Costs
Printing in colour costs more than printing in black. To keep your colour printing
costs down, follow these guidelines:
J Use Draft mode with the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge or the BC-22/22e
Photo Colour BJ cartridge to print drafts. Or use the BC-20 Black BJ
cartridge.
J For graphs and charts, set the fill option to coloured hatch patterns instead of
solid colours. Hatch patterns require less ink.
J Use lighter colours that incorporate more white space. For example, use pink
instead of red. The MultiPASS C50 produces light colours by alternating
coloured dots with white (unprinted) dots, and so uses less ink.
J Avoid full-colour backgrounds. If you must use one, do not set the
background for colour until you are ready for final printing.
J Some applications allow you to condense several pages of data onto a single
page for draft printing.

If your MultiPASS C50 is not operating properly, use the information and
suggestions in this chapter to try to solve the problem.
In addition, while some problems will have a single cause, others will have a
combination of causes. In the latter cases, you may need to use a process of
elimination to find the cause and correct the problem. For example, many
printing problems are related to how your software interacts with the MultiPASS
C50. If you were having trouble printing, but found that your MultiPASS C50
could make copies correctly, you would know that the problem was with your
computer, software, or cables, and not with the MultiPASS C50 itself.
If the MultiPASS C50 makes strange noises, emits smoke, or strange smells,
unplug it immediately and contact your local authorised Canon dealer or the
Canon help line. Do not attempt to disassemble or repair the unit yourself.

Blue prints as purple because
of the different technologies
used by the PC’s monitor and
the MultiPASS C50: the
monitor uses RGB (Red,
Green, Blue) colour, while the

and more purple than the
blue on the monitor.
On the PC, select Match colour

Cleaning and Testing the BJ Cartridge Print Head
The print head in the BJ print 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 MultiPASS C50 is equipped
with a print head cleaning function that does this.
If your printouts become faint or streaked, or if their quality otherwise decreases,
clean the print head as described below.
If your printing is faded, you can often correct the problem by adjusting the print
density (contrast) and printing speed. (For instructions, see the MultiPASS
Desktop Manager User’s Guide.) Try this before cleaning the print head.
Cleaning the print head uses a small amount of ink. Cleaning too often
significantly reduces the amount of ink in the cartridge, so clean only when
necessary.
1. Make sure the MultiPASS C50 is plugged in.
2. Press FUNCTION.

cleanings in all). If the problem persists after this, install a new BJ cartridge.
See ”Replacing the BJ Cartridge” on page 9-12.

When to Replace the BJ Cartridge
How frequently you need to replace your MultiPASS C50’s BJ cartridge or one of
its ink tanks depends on how you use your MultiPASS C50. If you print a good
deal of graphics, halftones, or greyscales, you will need to replace the cartridge
more often than if you print mainly text. (See page A-9 for details on the life
expectancy of BJ cartridges.)
To help ensure the maximum life for your cartridges, always follow the guidelines
for cartridge maintenance given in ”Guidelines for Using and Maintaining BJ
Cartridges” on page 2-27.
In general, you will need to replace the BJ cartridge in the following situations:
J If you have been using a BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge for over six months
or the BC-20 Black BJ cartridge for over a year.
J If your printed output is not crisp and clear or has gaps in the characters
(missing dots), even after you have cleaned the print head five times as
described above.
J If your colour printouts appear to be missing a colour, even after you have
cleaned the print head five times as described above.
In addition:
J If you are using the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge and your output is blank,
one of the ink tanks is probably empty and needs to be replaced. Print the
NOZZLE CHECK test pattern to check whether the BJ cartridge needs
replacing or not. See page 9-8 for details.
J If the message CHANGE CARTRIDGE appears in the LCD display, the BJ
cartridge may have run out of ink. This message also appears if the
MultiPASS C50 has to store a fax in its memory because the cartridge is out of
ink.
If this message appears, do the following:
1. Press START/COPY to print any faxes in memory.
N
If the printout appears normal, you do not need to replace the BJ
cartridge. (Sometimes cleaning the print head or re-installing the cartridge
will clear up the problem.)
N
If the print is light or shows gaps, go to step 2.
2. If there was no fax in memory, or if the fax’s print was light, blank, or showed
gaps, print or copy a document to make sure the problem is not with the
machine that sent the fax.

3. If the document is light, blank, or shows gaps, clean the printing area. If this
doesn’t work, replace the cartridge.
Although Canon makes numerous BJ cartridges, the BC-21/21e Colour BJ
cartridge, the BC-20 Black BJ cartridge, the BC-22/22e Colour Photo BJ
cartridge, and the BC-29F Fluorescent BJ cartridge are designed specifically for
Canon’s colour BJ printers, and are the only ones Canon recommends.
Also, the BCI-21 Colour and BCI-21 Black ink tanks are designed specifically for
the BC-21/21e Colour BJ cartridge, and are the only ones Canon recommends for
the BC-21/21e.
