Safety Precautions

Safety Precautions

Please read the safety warnings and cautions provided in this manual to ensure that you use the printer safely. Do not attempt to use the printer in any way not described in this manual.

Warning ➤

You may cause an electric shock/fire or damage the printer if you ignore any of these safety precautions.

■ Choosing a location

Do not place the printer close to flammable solvents such as alcohol or thinners.

■ Power supply

Never attempt to plug in or unplug the printer from the power supply when your hands are wet.

Always push the plug all the way into the power outlet.

Never damage, modify, stretch or excessively bend or twist the power cord. Do not place heavy objects on the power cord.

8

Safety Precautions

Never plug the printer into a power socket that is shared with other equipment (extension lead, double adapter, etc.).

Never use the printer if the power cord is bundled or knotted.

If you detect smoke, unusual smells or strange noises around the printer, immediately unplug the printer at the power supply and call for service.

Periodically, unplug the printer and use a dry cloth to wipe off any dust or dirt collects on the plug and the power outlet. If the printer is placed at a location exposed to a lot of dust, smoke, or high humidity, the dust that collects on the plug absorbs moisture and may cause insulation failure and fire.

■ Cleaning the printer

Use a damp cloth to clean the printer. Never use flammable solvents such as alcohol, benzene or thinners.

If flammable solvents come in contact with electrical components inside the printer, it could cause a fire or electric shock.

Always unplug the printer from the power outlet before cleaning the printer.

If you accidentally switch the printer on while cleaning it, you could injure yourself or damage the printer.

9

Safety Precautions

■ Maintaining the printer

Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the printer. There are no user serviceable parts inside the printer.

The printer contains high-voltage components. Never attempt any maintenance procedure not described in this guide.

■ Working around the printer

Do not use inflammable sprays near the printer.

This could cause a fire or electric shock if the spray comes into contact with electrical components inside the printer.

10

Safety Precautions

Caution ➤

You may cause injury or damage the printer if you ignore any of these safety precautions.

■ Choosing a location

Do not install the printer in a location that is unstable or subject to excessive vibration.

Do not install the printer in locations that are very humid or dusty, in direct sunlight, outdoors, or close to a heating source.

To avoid the risk of fire or electric shocks, install the printer in a location with an ambient temperature range of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F) and humidity of 10% to 90% (condensation free).

Do not place the printer on a thick rug or carpet.

Ensure that the area around the power outlet is kept clear at all times so you can easily unplug the power cord if necessary.

When moving the printer, carry the printer at both ends.

11

Safety Precautions

■ Power supply

Never remove the plug by pulling on the cord.

Do not use an extension lead.

Never use a power supply voltage other than that supplied in the country of purchase.

The correct power supply voltages and frequencies are as follows:

Europe: AC 230V

±

10%, 50Hz

USA/Canada: AC 120V, 60Hz

Australia: AC 240V, 50Hz

12

Safety Precautions

■ Working around the printer

Never put your hands or fingers in the printer while it is printing.

Do not place metal objects (paper clips, staples, etc.) or containers of flammable solvents (alcohol, thinners. etc.) on top of the printer.

If any foreign object (metal or liquid) falls into the printer, unplug the power cord and call for service.

■ Print heads and ink tanks

For safety reasons store print heads and ink tanks out of the reach of small children.

If a child ingests any ink, consult a doctor immediately.

Do not shake print heads or ink tanks.

Ink may leak out and stain clothing or the surrounding area.

Never touch the electrical contacts on a print head after printing.

The metal parts may be very hot and could cause burns.

13

Safety Precautions

■ About the Operation Panel

If the operation panel becomes damaged and the liquid crystal solution in the panel leaks out, absolutely do not taste or swallow the liquid.

If the liquid is accidentally swallowed, call a physician immediately. If the liquid gets on your hands or clothes, wash them immediately with soap.

When to Replace Ink Tank and Maintain Print Head

When an ink tank is empty, it must be replaced.

The BJ Status Monitor (Windows) or the BJ Print Monitor (Macintosh) will initially advise you of a low ink level. At this stage, you can still continue to print.

Once an ink tank is empty, the BJ Status Monitor (Windows) or the BJ Print Monitor

(Macintosh) will tell you to replace the ink tank. Attempting to print causes the POWER lamp to flash four times.

Replacing an Ink Tank

If printing becomes faint or a specific colour is no longer printing, even though there is still enough ink, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the procedures below to clean the nozzles.

Troubleshooting

Printed Surface is Scratched

■ Ensure you are using suitable paper.

• The paper weight must be less than 105 g/m

2

(28 lb).

If you use non-Canon brand paper heavier than 105 g/m

2

(28 lb), the print head may scratch the printed surface.

Clean the print head first and print with the correct paper.

• The paper must not be curled.

This problem can be resolved by simply turning the paper over.

■ Before starting Borderless Printing, check the paper that you are using.

With Borderless Printing, the print quality may decrease or smudging may occur at the top and bottom edges of the paper.

Use Photo Paper Pro, Photo Paper Plus Glossy, Matte Photo Paper or Glossy Photo Paper.

If smudging still occurs, set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right and try printing again.

■ When printing on thick paper, set the paper thickness lever to the " " mark.

This widens a gap between the print head and the paper. If the paper is scratched even when printing on plain paper, also try this.

If you print a document without using the computer, error 102 or 103 will be displayed on the operation panel. However, you can still start printing by pressing the Print button again.

■ Ensure the printer is turned on.

If the POWER lamp is off, press the POWER button.

If the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer is initialising. Wait until the POWER lamp stops flashing.

Note ➤

When printing a large amount of data such as a photo or graphics, it takes longer than usual to begin printing. While the POWER lamp is flashing, the computer processes the data and sends it to the printer. Simply wait until the processing is completed.

■ Ensure the printer is securely connected to the computer.

Note ➤

If you are using a switch box or other device, remove and reconnect the printer directly to the computer. Try printing again.

If printing is now successful, there may be a problem with the device.

Also there could be a problem with the cable(s). Replace the cable(s) and try printing again.

Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs 161

Troubleshooting

Printing Stops Before It is Completed

■ Check the status of the POWER lamp.

When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer is processing data. Printing a large amount of data such as a photo or graphics takes time for the computer to process the data, during which the printer may appear to not be functioning.

In addition, when continuously printing material that uses a large amount of black ink on plain paper, the printer will sometimes pause. In either case, simply wait until the processing is completed.

■ Halt the print job and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes to cool the print head down.

The print head can overheat when continuously printing for long time. To protect the print head, the printer will sometimes pause automatically at a line break before resuming.

In this event, interrupt the print job at a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least

15 minutes.

Furthermore, when continuously printing graphics or photos with intense colours, printing may stop to protect the print head. In this case, printing will not resume. Turn the printer off and wait for at least 15 minutes.

Caution ➤

Inside the printer, the area around the print head can become extremely hot. Do not touch the print head or nearby components.

Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs 162

Troubleshooting

Printer Moves But Does Not Print

■ Check the ink tanks. If empty, replace them.

■ Ensure that the ink tanks snap into place when you install them.

■ If there is plenty of ink but the printer does not print, clean the print head.

After cleaning the print head, print the nozzle check pattern to check that ink is being output normally.

Print Head Cleaning

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern

If the problem is not resolved by cleaning the print head several times, the print head may be worn out. Contact a Canon service facility.

If the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer is initialising.

When the POWER lamp stops flashing, open the front cover again.

■ If the front cover has been left open for a while, close and reopen it.

If the front cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the print head holder moves to the right to prevent the print head from drying out. Close and reopen the front cover to return the holder to the centre.

If you cannot pull the paper out, press the POWER button twice to eject the paper automatically.

2

After removing all paper, close the front cover.

3

Reload the paper into the printer and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

When reloading the paper into the printer, refer to " Paper Does Not Feed

Properly " to confirm that you are using the correct paper and are loading it

into the printer correctly.

■ Six flashes: No print head installed

Install a print head.

■ Seven flashes: Defective print head

Remove and reinstall the print head.

Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed. If reinstalling the print head does not resolve the problem, replace it with a new one.

■ Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative to have the waste ink tank replaced.

Note ➤

Canon recommends to call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will be no longer possible.
