shock.
• Unplug the power plug from the outlet regularly, and clean the area around the
base of the plug's metal pins and the power outlet with a dry cloth to ensure all
dust and grime is removed. If the printer is plugged in for a long period of time
in a damp, dusty, or smoky location, dust can build up around the plug and
become damp. This may cause a short circuit and result in a fire.
• There are some areas inside the printer which are subject to high voltages.
When removing jammed paper or when inspecting the inside of the printer, do
not allow necklaces, bracelets, or other metal objects to touch the inside of the
printer, as this may result in burns or electrical shock.
xvi
• Do not throw used toner cartridges into open flames. The remaining toner inside
the cartridges will ignite and may cause burns or a fire.
CAUTION
• Never attempt to service this printer yourself, except as explained in this
manual. There are no user serviceable parts inside the printer. Adjust only those
controls that are covered in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment
could result in personal injury and/or damage requiring extensive repair that
may not be covered under your Limited Warranty.
• The fixing unit and its surroundings inside the printer may become hot during

• When removing jammed paper or replacing the toner cartridge, take care not to
allow the toner to come into contact with your hands or clothing, as this will
dirty your hands or clothing. If they become dirty, wash them immediately with
cold water. Washing with warm water will set the toner, and make it impossible
to remove the toner stains.
• When removing paper which has become jammed inside the printer, remove the
jammed paper gently to prevent the toner on the paper from scattering and
entering your eyes or mouth. If toner enters your eyes or mouth, wash them
immediately with cold water and immediately consult a physician.
• When loading paper or removing jammed paper, take care not to cut your hands
on the edges of the paper.
• When removing used toner cartridges from the toner cartridge slot, remove the
cartridge carefully to prevent the toner from scattering and entering your eyes
or mouth. If the toner enters your eyes or mouth, wash them immediately with
cold water and immediately consult a physician.

Paper Requirements
Storing Paper
Handling and storing paper properly ensures high print quality, and prevents
potential paper jams. Using paper that is crumpled or exposed to moisture or direct
sunlight during improper storage or handling can contribute to poor print quality and
paper jams. Follow these guidelines when you store and handle paper:
Handling Paper
IMPORTANT
• Check the paper and make sure that it is not torn, folded or otherwise damaged.
• Leave unused paper in its wrapper.
• Never mix different types of paper when you load the multi-purpose tray.
• Always wait until the tray is empty before loading fresh paper. This helps to avoid paper
jams.
• If paper in the delivery slot is excessively curled, turn over the paper stack in the tray.
Paper Requirements
2-7

Paper Input and Output
IMPORTANT
• Choose an appropriate location for storage.
For best performance, keep the ambient storage and work area temperature to 20°C
(±3%) or 68°F (±5%). Keep the relative humidity at 45% (±5%).
• Guard against moisture.
Paper quality degrades in a moist environment. Store all unused paper in its wrapper.
Never store paper on the floor where water and moisture can collect. In areas of high
humidity, you may need to store paper in a specially designed storage box.
• Avoid direct sunlight.
Exposure to direct sunlight can dramatically degrade paper quality. Store paper away
from sunlight, and keep unused paper in its wrapper.
• Avoid sudden changes in temperature or humidity.
If paper is moved between locations that differ widely in temperature or humidity, it may
curl. If this situation cannot be avoided, store the paper in the work area by the printer for
at least one day to give the paper time to adjust to the new conditions.
• Avoid physical damage to stored paper.
Store paper on a flat surface to avoid creasing or curling. Never store paper on its end or
lean it against something.
Paper Delivery
This printer delivers the printed pages in two delivery methods, face-up delivery
and face-down delivery.

Paper Delivery
Face-Down Delivery
Use face-down delivery for plain paper only. Printouts are stacked in order in the
face-down delivery slot (which can hold up to 50 sheets of plain paper 64 g/m2).
1
Move the paper delivery selector up to the face-down mark.
IMPORTANT
• Do not replace paper in the face-down delivery slot once it is removed from the slot.
This could result in damage to the flaps inside the slot.
• Never insert paper or other objects into the face-down delivery slot.
Face-Up Delivery
Use face-up delivery for envelopes and transparencies, as well as other special
paper including non-standard sized plain paper. Printouts come out from the
face-up delivery slot face up. This helps prevent paper curl.

IMPORTANT
• When fanning or aligning transparencies, always hold the edges, to avoid touching
the print side.
• Be sure to load a stack of transparencies after thoroughly fanning them. Not
fanning them properly may cause the transparencies to overlap, causing paper
jams.
• Take care not to mark/stain the print side of the transparencies with fingerprints,
dust, or oil. This may cause poor print quality.
• If the leading edge of the paper is bent or curled, straighten out the paper before
loading it into the tray.
2
Load the stack of paper into the multi-purpose tray as
illustration below.
IMPORTANT
• Do not force the paper into the printer.
• Do not load more than 125 sheets of 64 g/m2, or a stack of any paper higher than
12.5 mm.

Adjust the paper guides to the width of the paper stack.
For A4-size or Letter/Legal-size paper, align the paper guides with the icons
inside the multi-purpose tray.
IMPORTANT
• Be sure to match the paper guides to the paper width. Misfeeds or paper jams may
occur if the paper guides are too loose or too tight.
• When reloading, be sure to remove any paper remaining in the multi-purpose tray.

Printing Envelopes from the Multi-Purpose Tray
When using C5-size envelopes, remove any stiffness by lightly flexing both
edges of the envelope.
Insert the envelopes one at a time into the multi-purpose tray, in the direction
shown in the illustration.
If the flap is along the long edge of the envelope, insert each envelope with the
flap at the back and on the right.
If the flap is along the short edge of the envelope, insert envelopes with the flap
at the bottom and at the back.

NOTE
After you have loaded the envelopes into the multi-purpose tray, please check the
following items to avoid paper jams or misfeeds before printing.
- Is the stack of envelopes bending? The stack may bend if the paper guides are too
tight.
- Are the envelopes evenly stacked? If the paper guides are loose, the envelopes may
not stack evenly or feed properly.
- Is the stack straight? Do not place the stack of envelopes at an angle.
- Are the flaps of each of the envelopes separate? If the flaps of the envelopes overlap,
paper jams or misfeeds will occur.
The illustrations below show the acceptable and unacceptable arrangement of the flaps
for the envelopes in the stack.
Paper Input and Output
2
Acceptable
The flap of each envelope should be separate, not overlapping the edges of any of the
other envelopes in the stack.
Unacceptable
If the flap of any of the envelopes overlap the edges of any of the other envelopes in the
stack, like those in the example below, paper jams or misfeeds will occur.

first. Slide the sheet of paper into the manual feeding slot until
it stops.
Adjust the paper guides to the sheet of paper.
Printing from the Manual Feed Slot
2-19
2
Paper Input and Output
The manual feed slot allows you to load paper manually, one sheet at a time. You
can load transparencies, labels, envelopes, postcards, or other special paper. You
can also load plain paper, which is useful when you want to use paper that is a
different size from the paper in the multi purpose tray.
Before loading paper manually, always select the paper delivery first. (See "Paper
Delivery," on p. 2-8.)
IMPORTANT
Be sure to match the paper guides to the paper width. Misfeeds or paper jams may
occur if the paper guides are too loose or too tight.
NOTE
• The manual feed has priority over the multi-purpose tray.
• Often applications will let you change the feeding direction of envelopes. Confirm
the feeding direction of envelopes before printing.
• If a postcard is not fed smoothly into the printer, gently push the top of the postcard
downwards until the roller inside the printer takes the card and feeds it into the
printer.
• When printing on postcards, the printing quality for non-characters (e. g. grayscale
illustrations) may deteriorate.

Using the Printer on Your Network
You can use the LBP-1120 as a network printer, which enables printing from the
computers over a network. The computer that is directly connected to the printer is
called "print server", and the computers that can use the printer over the network
are called "clients". The print server and clients do not need to use the same
operating system, and it is possible to print from a Windows 98/Me client to a
Windows 2000/XP printer server, or vice versa.
Using the Canon Advanced Printing Technology
3
IMPORTANT
Using the LBP-1120 on your network requires that both the print server and the client
devices are using Windows 98 or later.
NOTE
• Even if the server was not running when the client was started, you can start printing
simply by starting the server.
• If the server is running on Windows 2000/XP, you can print even if no one is logged into
the server. However there is no status display on the server when no one is logged in.
The display is shown on the client.
Connecting the LBP-1120 as a Network Printer
If you plan to share the LBP-1120 on a network, install the print server locally, then
make the following settings. For detailed information, see you print server system
documentation.

IMPORTANT
Form files created in LIPS format cannot be used.
■ Creating the Form File
Form files can be created with software bundled with Windows 98/Me/2000/XP, or other
software sold separately.
• Windows
Metafile
- A file format that can be created using illustration software. Save images as
Metafile (.wmf).
• Windows BMP
- A file format that can be created using the software that handles image. It is easy
to create file format. You can create BMP files using paint software bundled with
Windows 98/Me/2000/XP, and other software sold separately, such as "Corel

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
Toner cartridges are consumable products. When a cartridge is almost out of toner,
printed text becomes faded or streaked with white. When you find such a print
quality problem, try the following procedure. Then replace the toner cartridge with a
new one.
When you replace the toner cartridges, be sure to use the right one for this printer:
a Canon EP-22 cartridge.
WARNING
4
Maintenance
The fixing assembly inside the printer gets extremely hot. Be careful not to
touch any of the parts inside the cover except those specified in this manual.
Doing so may result in personal injury, or burns.
IMPORTANT
Never touch the high-voltage contact points inside the front cover. This could damage the
printer.
NOTE
• The EP-22 cartridge typically lasts for about 2,500 prints of Letter or A4-size paper. This
assumes that the printer is used for standard word processing documents printed at the
default density, and at 4% dot ratio (equivalent to print coverage of approximately 5%).
• The life of your cartridge may vary depending on how it is used. If your average
document contains a lot of graphics, shading or bold printing, or when you print on
A5-size paper or smaller, then the life of the toner cartridge is shorter.
4-2
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
Before Replacing the Toner Cartridge
You can use the following simple procedure to extend the life of the toner cartridge:
WARNING
If you get loose toner powder on your hands or clothing, wash it off with cold
water immediately.
NOTE
If the printed text is still streaked or faded, it is time to replace the toner cartridge. Follow
the procedure in the next section to replace the toner cartridge.
Grasp the top of the front cover on both sides, then gently pull
the cover until it is fully open.

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
Remove the new toner cartridge from its protective bag.
IMPORTANT
• Before you install the cartridge, ensure it has adjusted to room temperature
especially if the toner cartridge has been moved from a cold to a warm location. If a
cold cartridge is installed in the printer, condensation may form inside the cartridge
and cause a reduction in print quality.
• Before you install the cartridge, check the expiration date printed on the box. Old
toner cartridges can cause poor print quality. Always use a cartridge before its
expiration date.
• Save the protective bag. You may need it later if you have to remove the toner
cartridge from the printer.

Clearing Paper Jams
When a paper jam occurs during printing due to some reason, the Status Window
automatically opens and displays the error message <PAPER JAM>. When a paper
jam occurs, remove the jammed paper in the printer following the steps of
procedure described below and resume printing. If the message remains after
removing the jammed paper according to the prescribed procedure, broken pieces
of the jammed paper may still remain in the printer. In this case, check various
sections of the printer again to remove all pieces of the paper from inside the
printer.

Troubleshooting
Paper jams can occur in several locations along the print path. Refer to the diagram
below to help you locate paper jams. Locate the area where the paper jam has
occurred and follow the instructions for removing jams in that area. Be sure to
check all areas before resuming printing.
After you replace the cartridge and close the front cover, the printer should be
ready for printing. If the printer returns to the ready state for printing,
troubleshooting has been successful. If the printer does not return to the ready
state for printing, paper may still be jammed in the printer.
CAUTION
• Remove watches and any bracelets or rings when touching the inside of the
printer. These items may be damaged if they come into contact with parts inside
the printer.
• The fixing assembly inside the printer gets extremely hot. Be careful not to
touch any of the parts inside the cover except those specified in this manual.
Doing so may result in a personal injury or burns.
Troubleshooting
5
• Never touch the high-voltage contact points inside the front cover. This could
damage the printer.
IMPORTANT
• Be careful when handling the paper behind the fixing assembly. The toner is not fixed to
the paper and can easily dislodge.
• If you get loose toner powder on your hands or clothing, wash it off with cold water
immediately.
• To avoid possible damage to the printer, do not touch the pins near the right end of the
transfer roller.
• Remove the jammed paper with the power to the printer still on. If you turn the power off,
the data being printing will be erased.

device may be damaged. Pull out the jammed paper in the correct direction according to
the location at which the paper is jammed.
• When the jammed paper has torn, find the scrap pieces of the paper remaining inside the
printer and remove them.
• To avoid damaging the printer, check that the pressure release levers (black) were
released when the front cover was opened. If the pressure release levers were not
released, close the front cover and then open it again. This should automatically release
the pressure release levers. If the levers were not released automatically, release them
manually by pulling the levers at either end of the pressure bar slightly forwards with your
fingers, so they release the bar.
Before Removing Paper Jams Inside the Printer
When a paper jam occurs, follow the procedure below before removing the jammed
paper from the affected area.

A network connection between a computer and a printer (or other device) that does
not go through a server. See also Server, Client.
Physical RAM
Random access memory (RAM) that is physically present in the computer in the form
of memory chips, as opposed to virtual memory. See also Virtual Memory.
Point size
Character height is defined in points: one point is 1/72 of an inch.
6-8
Glossary
Portrait
The printing of text along the width (short edge) of the page.
Print job
A document that a Windows application has processed and sent to the Spooler to be
added to the print queue or directly to the printer.
Print queue
A list of files that are either waiting to be printed or are currently printing. Once a file
has been printed, it is removed from the print queue.
Printer driver
A program that controls how the computer and printer interact. The printer driver
supplies Windows with information such as descriptions of fonts and features of the
installed printer. When you print with the Canon Advanced Printing Technology, you
are using its printer driver.
Printers folder
The container in which your printer information is stored.
A profile is a file that stores the printer's settings, so those settings can be recreated
simply by selecting the profile from a menu.

R
Random Access Memory (RAM)
The working memory of the computer in which programs and data are temporarily
stored while you use them. Resetting or shutting off the computer clears all
information from RAM. Printing very complicated documents might require closing
other running programs or adding more RAM to the computer. See also Physical
RAM, Virtual memory.
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, but prints faster than higher resolutions. Higher resolution provides
smoother curves and angles as well as a better match to traditional typeface designs,
but prints more slowly. This printer can produce output with 300 or 600 dpi resolution.
Resolution values are represented by horizontal data and vertical data, for example,
600 x 600 dpi.
S

Scalable fonts
Appendix
Scalable fonts allow characters to be printed in various sizes and rotation angles. This
is different from bitmap fonts, which are printed in fixed sizes and angles.
Scaling
Enlarging or reducing the printed image.
SCoA
ScoA is an original Canon print data compressor and forwarding technology, which
utilizes the full potential of your computer to make CAPT high speed printing a reality.
Further, as compression and forwarding are efficient, only a small amount of memory
is used, and regardless of how much data you send, you do not need to increase
RAM.
Separator page
Optional pages printed at the beginning of each document to help separate one print
job from another.
Server
A network computer that is directly attached to the printer. The server controls the
printer and handles print jobs sent from the clients. See also Client.

Glossary
Shielded
A type of cable that contains a metallic sheath over the conductor material to protect
the data passing through the cable from electromagnetic interference. You need to
use a high-quality shielded interface cable with this printer.
Sound file
A file containing audio information that can be played by a sound driver. The Canon
Advanced Printing Technology includes sound files that play to indicate printing
conditions.
Spooling
A process by which an application sends a document to the Spooler, rather than
directly to the printer, thus freeing the computer and application for other tasks.
Spooled documents are printed in the order they are received.
Start menu
The menu that presents commands that are a starting point for all work you do on
your computer, such as starting a program, opening a document, finding a file, and
getting help. You open the Start menu by clicking the Start button displayed on the
Desktop.

connections (Plug & Play) to allow plugging and unplugging connectors with the
power still turned on to the PC or peripheral equipment.
Appendix
6
V
Virtual Memory
Space on the hard disk that Windows uses for temporary data storage as if it were
actually random access memory (RAM). Windows does this by means of a swap file.
This provides Windows with more usable memory, but reduces speed of access to it
when the swap file must be used. See also Physical RAM.
W
Weight
Refers to the thickness of a font: light, medium, or bold. Also refers to the thickness of
paper.
Windows Explorer
The Windows program you can use to browse through, open, and manage the disk
drives, folders, and files on your computer in a network system. You can also use
