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 a used toner cartridge 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.
Consumables
WARNING
• Do not throw a used toner cartridge into open flames, as this may cause toner
remaining inside the cartridge to ignite and result in burns or a fire.
• Do not store a toner cartridge or copy paper in places exposed to open flames, as
this may cause the toner or paper to ignite and result in burns or a fire.
CAUTION
Keep toner and other consumables out of the reach of small children. If these items

Features and Benefits
■ High Performance Printing System "CAPT"
1
Before You Start Using This Printer
LBP3200 is equipped with the latest CAPT (Canon Advanced Printing Technology)
software supporting Windows 98/Me and Windows 2000/XP. As this system
batch-processes the print data in a computer instead of a printer, it enables high-speed
printing, making full use of the features of a computer. It shortens the time period over
which the computer is freed. The information, such as out of paper, the remaining time of
printing and the estimated time of print completion, appears on the display in real time.
■ USB Interface Equipped as Standard
The USB (Universal Serial Bus) interface with which the peripheral devices can be
connected using one connector is equipped as standard.
■ High-speed Printing & Extra-High-definition Image Printing
18-sheet-a-minute high-speed printing minimizes your stress of waiting for print
completion. LBP3200 is equipped with a printer engine of 600 dpi resolution. By adopting
Canon's own new Automatic Image Refinement, an 2400 dpi-equivalent x 600 dpi
extra-high-definition image can be obtained. The gray scale adopting the dither method
produces delicate images such as photographs and graphics beautifully.
■ Supporting Various Networks
If you use this printer as a network printer, the status is displayed in both the server and
client computers. You can perform job operations from both of them.
■ Supporting Various Type of Materials
Various types of materials, such as plain paper, envelops (Envelope C5, Envelope
COM10, Envelope DL, Envelope Monarch), labels, transparencies, can be used for this
printer. Although this printer is for A4-size paper, its reduction mode can reduce a
document of larger size, such as A3 and B4, to A4 size to print.
It can also produce a print of custom paper size.
■ Low Power Consumption and Quick Startup
Canon's own "On-demand Fixing System" achieves low power consumption and quick
startup. This innovative technology heats the fixing heater instantaneously only at printing,
and saves warm-up time. So, LBP3200 is always in standby status and ready to print.
Furthermore, the average power consumption at standby status is only about 7 W.
■ Compact & Quiet Design
The compact design of this printer saves space in your home or office.
Quiet during print and noiseless in standby status allow you to use this printer without
concerning with neighbourhood even at night.

Loading Paper
The paper sources in which you can load paper are the cassette and the manual
feed slot. For continuous print, load paper in the cassette.
For printing on one sheet of paper that differs in size or type from paper in the
cassette, set the paper in the manual feed slot.
IMPORTANT
• Before printing on paper that is fed from the cassette, make sure that paper is not set in
the manual feed slot. If paper is set in the manual feed slot, the paper in the manual feed
slot is fed first.
• Do not set paper in the manual feed slot while printing is being made with paper fed from
the cassette. If you do so, the paper in the manual feed slot is fed, resulting in
double-feeds or paper jams.
• Do not load jagged-edged, creased, or extremely curled paper. It may result in paper
jams or printer malfunction.
• For more details on usable paper, see "Usable Paper," on p. 2-2.
• If "LGL" is indicated in the cassette, you can load the legal-size paper in the cassette.
Whether "LGL" is indicated in the cassette or not depends on the area where you
purchased this printer.
• This printer can print on A4- and Letter-size transparencies.
• This printer can print on A4- and Letter-size labels.
• Do not use the following types of labels. Using inappropriate labels may result in paper
jams that are difficult to clear or may result in damaging the printer.
- Peeled labels or partly used labels
- Coated labels that are easily peeled off from the backing sheet
- Labels with adhesive protruded
• A label that can be loaded in the cassette is a standard type (label standard card) only.
Set any type of labels other than the standard type (label standard card) in the manual
feed slot.
• The heavy paper that you can load in the cassette is the one in weight of 128 g/m2 or
less. Set heavy paper in weight of 129 g/m2 or over in the manual feed slot.

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
This section describes how to replace or handle the toner cartridge and the
precautions for storage.
IMPORTANT
The product code of the toner cartridge is indicated on the location shown in the figure.
Purchase a toner cartridge of the same product code when you need it.
Routine Maintenance

NOTE
With the toner cartridge for this printer, up to approx. 2500 sheets of paper (A4) can be
printed. This number of sheets is calculated assuming that a typical document (with a
printing ratio of approximately 5 % and print density set to default) is printed. The toner
consumption differs depending on document contents. As a document with few blanks,
such as graphics, consumes toner much, if you often print this type of documents, the life
of the toner cartridge is shortened.
Before Replacing the Toner Cartridge
A toner cartridge is a consumable product. If there is not sufficient toner, white
streaks may appear and the print may be too thin or uneven in lengthwise direction
of paper. In this case, follow the procedure below before replacing the toner
cartridge. You may be able to print for a while until toner runs out completely.
CAUTION
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.

Paper Jams
The messages shown below will appear in the Printer Status Window when a paper
jam occurs during print.
WARNING
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.
CAUTION
• When removing jammed paper, 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
getting into your eyes or mouth. If the toner gets into your eyes or mouth, wash
them immediately with cold water and immediately consult a physician.
• When removing jammed paper, take care not to cut your hands on the edges of
the paper.
