x
Operating Environment
When selecting a location for the printer, check the following guidelines:
• Make sure the location is flat and sturdy.
• When power is on (printer plugged into an AC outlet):
Temperature: 7.5˚C-35˚C (45.5˚F-95˚F)
Relative humidity: 5-90% RH with no condensation
• Make sure the surrounding area is well ventilated.
• The printer must not be in a direct draft.
Avoid placing the printer in the following
locations:
• Under direct sunlight, near heaters,
air conditioners, or open flames.
Strong light entering the printer unit causes the internal cartridge drum
surface to deteriorate and degrades the printing.
• Near magnets or equipment that generates magnetic fields.
• Near areas subject to vibration.
• In dusty places or places where the air contains high concentrations
of salt or corrosive gases.
• Near water pipes and refrigerators.
If humidity is less than 30%, use a humidifier or an anti-static mat to
prevent buildup of electrostatic charges.
If the room temperature rises abruptly, or the printer is moved from a cool
and dry place to a warm and humid place, condensation may form inside
the printer and cause problems with paper delivery or a deterioration in
print quality and, in some cases, result in printer error. To prevent this,
allow the printer to sit for an hour or more to adjust to the new
temperature.
xi
Observe the following requirements when the power is off (printer
unplugged from the AC outlet):
• Temperature: 0˚C-35˚C (32˚F-95˚F).
• Relative Humidity: 35-85% RH with no condensation.
Carrying the Printer
CAUTION:
Do not carry the printer by holding the front panel or by holding it at the
front and rear. This could result in damage to the printer or personal
injury if the printer is dropped.
Before transporting the printer, always remove the EP-25 cartridge and
store it in its original protective bag or wrap it in a thick cloth to protect it
from strong light.

Paper Handling
Chapter 2
Plain Paper
Follow these guidelines when selecting paper:
❏ Paper that is too thick or too thin, or that has irregular shapes, cutouts,
or perforations should not be used.
❏ Extremely smooth paper or paper with special coatings does not print
well.
❏ The laser printing process uses high temperatures to fuse toner to the
paper. Use paper that will not melt, vaporize, offset, discolor, or emit
dangerous fumes at about 190˚ C (374˚ F).
❏ Do not use thermal or carbon paper, or paper with glue, staples, clips,
or ribbons.
For colored paper, use colors that are not damaged by the heat of the
printer’s fixing assembly (about 190˚ C or 374˚ F).
Transparencies
The acceptable size is A4. The transparencies must be able to withstand
the heat generated by the fixing assembly (about 190˚ C or 374˚ F)
without damage.
Labels
Labels are paper with pressure-sensitive adhesive. Acceptable size is A4.
Note the following conditions when choosing a label sheet:
❏ The label print face (top, or face sheet) must be made of ordinary,
matte-finish paper similar to copy paper.
❏ The paper backing must be able to withstand the heat generated by the
fixing assembly (about 190˚ C or 374˚ F). The backing must not be
made of easily removable coated paper.
Chapter 2
Paper Handling
9
Paper Handling
❏ Never use paper that is wet, highly textured, rough, torn, wrinkled, or
damaged.
❏ Do not use labels with exposed adhesive, which may stick to the EP25 cartridge or the fixing roller, causing the labels to peel off and
serious paper jams to occur.
Envelopes
Follow these guidelines when printing on envelopes:
❏ Envelopes must not have any fasteners, snaps, or windows, or be made
of artificial materials.
❏ Do not use envelopes that discolor or melt at about 190˚ C (374˚ F),
envelopes which might emit dangerous fumes when heated, or
envelopes that seal with pressure-sensitive adhesives.
❏ Do not use envelopes which are damaged, curled or wrinkled, or that
have an irregular shape.
❏ Do not use oversized envelopes, or envelopes with folds.
❏ Poorly manufactured envelopes are not recommended.
10
Paper Handling
Chapter 2
Postcards
Follow these guidelines when printing on postcards:
❏ Postcards should not be greater than 0.28 mm in thickness.
❏ Postcards should be free of glue, clips, and staples.
Storing Paper
Improper paper storage might cause a deterioration of print quality and
paper performance. Therefore, note the following when storing paper:
❏ Store unused paper in its wrapping to protect against humidity.
❏ Do not store paper directly on the floor as the floor is usually humid.
❏ If you must store paper in a very humid place, use a specially designed
storage box.
❏ Keep paper on a flat surface to prevent excessive in-ream paper curl.
❏ Do not stack paper too high to prevent excessive in-ream paper curl.
❏ Do not subject paper to direct sunlight or a humid environment.
If paper is moved to a place with a very different temperature, leave it
there for about one day before using it; otherwise it could curl or develop
wrinkles.
Chapter 2
Paper Handling
11
Paper Handling
❏ Do not use postcards that are damaged or curled, or that have special
coatings or an irregular shape.
Paper Path
Understanding how paper travels inside the printer helps you better
handle paper loading and jams.
A sheet of paper enters the printer from the cassette or the manual feed
slot. It travels to the image transfer area where the printer drum has been
statically charged. A laser beam changes the static charge on the drum
and toner clings to those parts of the drum. As the paper rolls across the
drum, the toner transfers to the paper. The toner is then fused to the paper
by the fixing assembly. The paper either comes out from the face-up
delivery slot or travels to the face-down delivery slot, depending on the
paper delivery method selected.
12
Paper Handling
Chapter 2
Selecting Paper Delivery
Paper Handling
Use the delivery selection cover to choose face-up or face-down delivery.
When the cover is open, face-up delivery is selected. When the cover is
closed, face-down delivery is selected.
Face-down
Face-up
Face-down Delivery
Printouts are stacked in order in the face-down delivery slot (which can
hold up to 125 sheets of 64 g/m2 paper).
To select face-down delivery, close the delivery selection cover.
❏ 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.
Chapter 2
Paper Handling
13
Face-up Delivery
Printouts come out from the face-up delivery slot face up. This helps
prevent paper curl.
To select face-up delivery, open the delivery selection cover.
❏ Do not pull on the printout while it is still emerging from the face-up
delivery slot.
❏ Do not open or close the delivery selection cover until the printout has
completely come out of the delivery slot. Opening/closing the delivery
selection cover while printing could cause a paper jam.
❏ The printer is not equipped with a face-up delivery tray. The delivered
paper must be removed manually.
❏ Make sure there is enough room at the front of the face-up delivery
slot for the paper to exit.
14
Paper Handling
Chapter 2
Loading Paper into the Cassette
Before loading paper on the cassette, first select the paper delivery. For
more details, see “Selecting Paper Delivery” on page 13.
Follow the steps below to load a stack of paper.
1.
Prepare a stack of paper and tap it on a flat surface to properly align
the edges.

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 cassette.
❏ Do not force the paper into the printer or printing problems might
result.
❏ For continuous manual feed, insert a new sheet only when the
previous sheet has come out completely from the delivery slot. If a
new sheet is inserted before the previous sheet has been delivered, a
paper jam may occur.

Printer Sharing
Printer sharing enables printing from network clients. Printer sharing
with the LBP-1210 printer requires that both the print server and the
client devices are using Windows 95 or later, or Windows NT 4.0 or later.
The print server and client do not need to use the same operating system,
and it is possible to print from a Windows 95/98/Me client to a Windows
NT 4.0/2000/XP print server, or vice versa.
If the server is running on Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP, you can print, even
if no one is logged into the server. Please note that there is no status
display on the server when no one is logged in. The status display is
shown on the client.

Printing with the CAPT
The CAPT offers bi-directional communication between the computer
and printer. To take advantage of the bi-directional communication, one
end of a bi-directional parallel cable connects to the printer and the other
end connects directly to your computer.
Every time you print, the CAPT displays the Canon LASER SHOT
LBP-1210 Status Window. This window shows you the paper moving
through the printer, how long it will take to print the document, and how
much of the document has printed. From the Status Window you can
pause, resume, or delete the current print job.
If a printing problem occurs, the Canon LASER SHOT LBP-1210
Status Window automatically opens and identifies the problem.
Before using the CAPT, make sure you select it as your current Windows
printer driver. During Setup, the installation program makes the CAPT
the default printer driver. If you have not changed printers since running
the Setup program, you are ready to print.

Viewing the print status
The status of a network printer can be viewed on the print server as well
as the client.
For job status to be displayed in the client’s Status Window, the print
server’s Status Window must be running.
If the status option “Display Printer Status Window while printing,” has
been selected on the client, the client’s Status Window opens
automatically once printing from the server starts.
If an error occurs on the server, the client’s Status Window for that job
opens automatically.
If the client’s Status Window opens automatically, it closes automatically
when printing completes or the error is canceled, unless the user
interacted with the window or its menus.
Performing print job operations
Print job operations (pause, resume, delete) may be performed from
either the print server or the client for that job. After a client performs a
print operation, no other operations are allowed until the server confirms
that the operation has been accepted.
In Windows 95/98/Me, print job operations cannot be selected on any
other screen except the print server or client for that job. In Windows NT
4.0/2000/XP any authorized user can perform print job operations.
If the print server’s Status Window is not running, you cannot perform job
operations on the client. The client’s Status Window displays the message
“Check Print Server.”
Audio messages for jobs play on the client and on the print server.

Troubleshooting
This chapter includes information to help you solve printer problems. A
problem might have one or a combination of causes, including a
computer malfunction, software errors, the printer cable, or the printer.
Many printing problems are related to how your software interacts with
the printer.
If you can print a self test, but the printer does not print other jobs, or
your printed output is not what you expected, the problem is with your
computer, software, or cables.
If your printer is not operating properly, try the suggestions in this chapter
in the order listed.

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.
Remove watches and any bracelets or rings when touching the inside of
the printer. These items might be damaged if they come into contact with
parts inside the printer.
1.
If there is the stack of paper left in the cassette or on the face-down
delivery tray, remove it first, then open the front cover with both
hands until it stops.
2.
Remove the EP-25 cartridge.
114 Troubleshooting

CAUTION:
The face-up delivery area (shaded part) becomes hot when the printer is
in use. Be careful not to touch this area, because personal injury might
result.
Chapter 4
Troubleshooting
115
Troubleshooting
Do not expose the cartridge to light for more than 5 minutes. If necessary,
put the cartridge in its original protective bag or wrap it with a thick cloth
to prevent exposure to light.
When removing the jammed paper, do not touch the transfer roller
(shaded part) as its surface is very delicate and susceptible to finger oil
and scratches, which may lead to print deterioration.
Be careful when removing the paper; toner on the paper might get onto
your hands or clothing. If this happens, wash it off immediately with cold
running water.
To avoid possible damage to the printer, do not touch the pins near the left
end of the transfer roller.
116 Troubleshooting
Chapter 4
Removing Paper Jams
Please use both hands to remove jammed paper from the printer.
Paper Jam in the Paper Feed Area
Use both hands to pull the jammed paper straight up and out from the
cassette, slowly and carefully.
Be careful not to tear the paper when pulling. If the paper is torn, remove
the paper scraps from the printer.

If only a small portion of the paper has moved into the printer
If the paper has moved completely into the printer
Follow the steps described in “Before Removing Paper Jams Inside the
Printer” on page 114 to remove the toner cartridge, then follow the
procedure below.
1.
Use both hands to carefully move the paper inward, then gently pull
it out.
2.
Roll the leading edge of the paper outwards so that the printed
surface is on the inside of the roll, then gently pull the rolled up
paper out of the printer.
3.
If the leading edge of the paper is visible but has not entered the
imaging area, pull the paper forwards and roll it inwards.
118 Troubleshooting
Chapter 4
❏ Do not pull the jammed paper forward from the paper cassette. It may
cause a printer malfunction.
Do not pull the jammed paper upward; the toner on the paper will stain

122 Troubleshooting
Chapter 4
❏ 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, confirm that the paper release
levers are placed back to their original position, and check to see that
paper is not left in the printer.
Troubleshooting
❏ While removing the jammed paper, some toner might stain the inside
of the printer which will make the first few printouts dirty when
printing resumes.

Troubleshooting
123
Print Quality Problems
Printout Has Vertical White Streaks
Vertical white streaks, similar to the sample below, result when toner is
low or unevenly distributed.
Corrective action
1.
Open the front cover and take out the EP-25 cartridge.
2.
Rock the cartridge gently from side to side five or six times to evenly
distribute the toner inside. (For more information, see “Installing the
EP-25 Cartridge” in the Getting Started Guide.)
3.
Insert the cartridge into the printer.
4.
Close the front cover and try to print again.
If the problem persists, the cartridge has probably expired. Replace it
with a new one, using the steps described in “Installing the EP-25
Cartridge” in the Getting Started Guide.
When purchasing a replacement cartridge, make sure you get the right
one for this printer: a Canon EP-25 cartridge.
The EP-25 cartridge typically lasts for about 2,500 prints of Letter- or
A4-size paper, assuming 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 actual cartridge life depends
on the average page coverage of your printed documents.
124 Troubleshooting
Chapter 4
Printout Has Black Specks
If toner powder adheres to the pressure roller, black specks 1 mm in
diameter or larger might appear on the front or back of the printed paper.
Corrective action
1.
Use the Options menu in the Status Window to print the cleaning
page on a blank sheet of paper.
2.
If there are no black specks on the cleaning page, the pressure roller
is clean.
3.
If there are black specks on the cleaning page, repeat step 1 until
there are no black specks on the cleaning page. You may repeat this
procedure several times with no adverse effect on the printer.
Printout Too Light
This occurs with high-volume printing in a hot environment.
1.
Increase the printing density.
2.
If this has no effect, replace the EP-25 cartridge.
Troubleshooting
Corrective action
Printout Too Dark
If there is a strong light source near the printer, the prints may be too
dark.
Corrective action
Chapter 4
1.
Check whether the density adjustment is correct. If not, adjust the

Handling and Cleaning the Printer
Handling the Printer
Note the following points when handling the printer:
❏ Do not place any heavy objects on the printer.
❏ Do not insert paper or other objects into the face-down delivery slot.
❏ When the printer is printing, do not rock or move the printer, and do
not open the front cover. If you do, the printer might be damaged.
❏ After unplugging it from the AC outlet, wait until the printer has
cooled off completely before covering it with a dust cover.
❏ If you are not going to use the printer for an extended period of time,
unplug it from the AC outlet.
❏ Never attempt to disassemble the printer.
Chapter 5
Maintenance
137
Maintenance
❏ Do not subject the manual feeding slot area to direct sunlight or other
strong light.
Cleaning the Printer
Clean the printer cabinet regularly to keep the printer in its best condition.
To clean the printer, use a soft cloth slightly moistened with water or a
mild detergent solution. Avoid using any other type of solvents, such as
alcohol or benzine, which might damage the surface. When finished
cleaning, wipe the cabinet with a dry cloth.
Before cleaning the printer, always unplug it from the AC outlet.
Do not spill water or detergent into the printer. Otherwise the printer will
be damaged and electric shock may even occur.
Do not lubricate the printer. This printer does not require lubrication.
EP-25 Cartridge
The EP-25 cartridge contains a photosensitive part called a “drum” which
has characteristics similar to photo film. It also contains black carbon
powder called “toner.” The drum is extremely sensitive to light and might
deteriorate if exposed to light. Also, poor print quality can result if toner
becomes caked or unevenly distributed inside the cartridge.
Please adhere to the following guidelines when storing or handling the
cartridge.
138 Maintenance
Chapter 5
Storage Guidelines
Store the cartridge in its protective bag. Do not open
the bag until you are ready to install the cartridge in
the printer.
•
Do not store the cartridge where it will be exposed
to direct sunlight.
•
Do not stand the cartridge on end, and do not turn it
upside down. If the toner becomes caked in the
cartridge, it may prove impossible to free it even by
shaking the cartridge, and print quality can
deteriorate.
•
Do not store the cartridge at a high temperature or in
high humidity, or in places where the temperature or
humidity can change abruptly.
•
Store the cartridge at temperatures between 0˚C and
35˚C (between 32˚F and 95˚F).
•
Do not store the cartridge in salty air or where there
are corrosive gases such as those from aerosol
sprays.
•
Keep the cartridge away from a monitor's cathode
ray tube (CRT), disk drives and floppy disks. The
magnet in the cartridge can distort the image on the
CRT, or damage data on disks.
Maintenance
•
Chapter 5
Maintenance
139
Handling Guidelines
•
Do not expose the cartridge to direct sunlight. Do not
expose it to bright light or to room light for more than
5 minutes.
•
Do not open the drum’s protective shutter on the
cartridge. If the shutter is open and the drum is
damaged, print quality might deteriorate.
•
Do not stand the cartridge on end, and do not turn it
upside down. If the toner becomes caked in the
cartridge, it might prove impossible to free it even by
shaking the cartridge, which results in print quality
deterioration.
•
Keep the cartridge away from a monitor's cathode ray
tube (CRT), disk drives and floppy disks. The magnet
in the cartridge can distort the image on the CRT, or
damage data on disks.
•
Do not touch the drum’s protective shutter. Avoid
holding the cartridge in such a way that your hand is
touching the drum’s protective shutter.
•
When transporting the printer, remove the cartridge
from the printer. (Put the cartridge in its original
protective bag or wrap it with thick cloth to prevent
exposure to light.)
Correct Handling
140 Maintenance
Chapter 5
CAUTION:
Do not dispose of toner cartridges in fire. Toner powder is flammable.
• Do not attempt to disassemble the cartridge.
Replacing the EP-25 Cartridge
The EP-25 cartridge typically lasts for about 2,500 prints of Letter or A4size 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 actual cartridge
life depends on the average page coverage of your printed documents. If
your documents have on average less text with lots of white space, the
cartridge lasts longer. However, if you frequently print graphics and text,
the cartridge life is shorter.
When a print quality problem cannot be corrected following the steps in
chapter 4, “Troubleshooting,” it is probably time to replace the cartridge
with a new one.
Grasp the top of the front cover on both sides, then gently pull the
cover until it is fully open.

147
Network Adapter:
AXIS 1610
The optional network adapter, AXIS 1610 is available to use the LBP1210 in a network.
Connecting Directly From Clients
Centralized control of print jobs is not available because print queues are
distributed among all clients.
When multiple jobs compete, jobs print in the order of arrival at the
network adapter.
Jobs may not arrive in the order they were sent. For example, if client 1
enters jobs A and B, and then client 2 enters job C, the print order might
be A, C, then B, if job B did not arrive at the network adapter until job A
was completed.
You must install the Print Monitor for the network adapter on each client.
When using the Add Printer Wizard, you must connect directly to the
network.
Since the printer port is treated as a local port, choose “AXIS CAPT Port”
in the port settings dialog box.
148 Network Adapter: AXIS 1610
Appendix B
Connecting Through A Print Server
Using a print server, you can control print jobs (for example, change
printing order, cancel jobs, etc.) centrally.
