USERS IN U.S.A.
PRE-INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS FOR CANON
FACSIMILE EQUIPMENT
A. Location
Supply a suitable table, cabinet, or desk. See Appendix A for the unit’s
dimensions and weight.
B. Order Information
1.
Only a single line, touch-tone or rotary telephone set is to be used.
2.
Order an RJ11-C modular jack (USOC code), which should be
installed by the phone company. If the RJ11-C jack is not present,
installation cannot occur.
3.
Order a normal business line from your telephone company’s business
representative. The line should be a regular voice grade line or
equivalent. Use one line per unit.
DDD (DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE
or
IDDD (INTERNATIONAL DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE IF YOU
COMMUNICATE OVERSEAS
N
Canon recommends an individual line following industry standards [e.g., the
2500 (touch-tone) or 500 (rotary/pulse dial) telephones]. A dedicated extension
off a PBX unit without “Call Waiting” can be used with your MultiPASS C5500.
Key telephone systems are not recommended because they send non-standard
signals to individual telephones for ringing and special codes, which may cause
a fax error.
C. Power Requirements
This equipment should be connected to a standard 120 volt AC, three-wire
grounded outlet only. Do not connect this unit to an outlet or power line
shared with other appliances that cause “electrical noise.” Air conditioners,
electric typewriters, copiers, and machines of this sort generate noise which
often interferes with communications equipment and the sending and
receiving of documents.
CONNECTION OF THE EQUIPMENT
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. On the rear panel of
this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, the FCC
Registration Number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this
equipment. If requested, this information must be given to the telephone
company. This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the
telephone company. Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs.
iii
IN CASE OF EQUIPMENT MALFUNCTION
Should any malfunction occur which cannot be corrected by the procedures
described in this User’s Manual, disconnect the equipment from the telephone
line or unplug the power cord. The telephone line should not be reconnected or
the power cord plugged in until the problem is completely resolved. Users
should contact Canon Authorized Service Facilities for servicing of equipment.
Information regarding Authorized Service Facility locations can be obtained by
calling the Canon Computer Systems Customer Care Center. (See page 1-4 for
details.)
RIGHTS OF THE TELEPHONE COMPANY
Should the equipment cause harm to the telephone network, the telephone
company may temporarily disconnect service. The telephone company also
retains the right to make changes in facilities and services which may affect the
operation of this equipment. When such changes are necessary, the telephone
company is required to give adequate prior notice to the user.
WARNING
Do not make any changes or modifications to the equipment unless otherwise
specified in the manual. If such changes or modifications should be made, you
could be required to stop operation of the equipment.
N
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed, and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the
following measures:
●
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
●
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
●
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
●
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any
person to use a computer or other electronic device to send any message via a
telephone fax machine unless such message clearly contains in a margin at the
top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission,
the date and time it is sent and an identification of the business or other entity,
or other individual sending the message and the telephone number of the
sending machine or such business, other entity, or individual.
To automatically enter this information into your MultiPASS C5500, follow the
instructions in your Quick Start Guide.

USERS IN CANADA
PRE-INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS FOR CANON
FACSIMILE EQUIPMENT
A. Location
Supply a suitable table, cabinet, or desk. See Appendix A for the unit’s
dimensions and weight.
B. Order Information
1.
Provide only a single-line to touch-tone or rotary telephone set
terminated with a standard 4-pin modular phone plug. (Touch-tone is
recommended if available in your area.)
2.
Order an RJ11-C modular jack (USOC code), which should be
installed by the phone company. If the RJ11-C jack is not present,
installation cannot occur.
3.
Order a normal business line from your telephone company’s business
representative. The line should be a regular voice grade line or
equivalent. Use one line per unit.
DDD (DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE
or
IDDD (INTERNATIONAL DIRECT DISTANCE DIAL) LINE IF YOU
COMMUNICATE OVERSEAS
N
Canon recommends an individual line following industry standards [e.g., the
2500 (touch-tone) or 500 (rotary/pulse dial) telephones]. A dedicated extension
off a PBX unit without “Camp On” signals is also permissible with your
MultiPASS C5500. Key telephone systems are not recommended because they
send non-standard signals to individual telephones for ringing and special
codes, which may cause a fax error.
C. Power Requirements
The power outlet should be a three-prong grounded receptacle (Single or
Duplex). It should be independent from copiers, heaters, air conditioners,
or any electric equipment that is thermostatically controlled. The rated
value is 120 volts and 15 amperes. The RJ11-C modular jack should be
relatively close to the power outlet to facilitate installation.
NOTICE
The Industry Canada label identifies certified equipment. This certification
means that the equipment meets telecommunications network protective,
operational and safety requirements as prescribed in the appropriate Terminal
Equipment Technical Requirements document(s). The Department does not
guarantee the equipment will operate to the user’s satisfaction.
v
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be
connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The
equipment must also be installed using an acceptable method of connection.
The customer should be aware that compliance with the above conditions may
not prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be coordinated by a representative
designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this
equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications
company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground
connections of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water
pipe system, if present, are connected together. This precaution may be
particularly important in rural areas.
CAUTION
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should
contact the appropriate electric inspection authority, or electrician, as
appropriate.
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) assigned to each terminal device
provides an indication of the maximum number of terminals allowed to be
connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may consist
of any combination of devices subject only to the requirement that the sum of
the Ringer Equivalence Numbers of all the devices does not exceed 5.

Canon has more engineers dedicated to creating quality ink for
providing the best results for output on Bubble Jet products than any
other organization. Canon does not prohibit the use of third-party inks
and the use of third-party inks does not invalidate the product’s limited
warranty. However, Canon cannot guarantee the quality or performance
of your MultiPASS C5500 when you are using inks from other suppliers.
Canon’s limited warranty does not cover damage caused to Canon’s
Bubble Jet products that is attributable to the use of third party parts or
supplies, including inks. The limited warranty remains in effect for its
life once that particular damage has been properly repaired.
For optimum printing results, Canon recommends that you use only
Canon ink cartridges.

BJ cartridges contain the Bubble Jet print head and ink, while BJ tanks
contain ink only. Some BJ cartridges, like the BC-21e Color BJ
Cartridge, contain replaceable BJ tanks; when you run out of ink, you
can replace the empty tank. Some BJ cartridges, like the BC-20 Black
BJ Cartridge, contain both the print head and ink; when you run out of
ink, you replace the entire BJ cartridge. See Chapter 9, Maintaining the
MultiPASS C5500, for details on replacing BJ cartridges and BJ tanks.

Servicing the MultiPASS C5500
❍ Do not use the MultiPASS near water. If you spill liquid on
or into the unit, unplug it immediately and call the Customer Care
Center.
❍ Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are
provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the
MultiPASS and to protect it from overheating, do not block or cover
these openings. Do not block the openings by placing the unit on a
bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place the unit near a
radiator, nor in a closet or built-in cabinet unless proper ventilation
is provided.
❍ Operate the MultiPASS only from the type of power source
indicated on the unit’s label. If you are not sure of the type of power
available, consult your dealer or local power company.
❍ Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord, and do not locate
the MultiPASS where the cord will be walked on. Make sure the
power cord is not knotted or kinked.
❍ Do not push metal objects of any kind into the slots or openings on
the cabinet. This could result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
❍ Do not allow small objects (such as pins, paper clips, or staples) to
fall into the MultiPASS. If something does fall into it that you
cannot remove, unplug the unit immediately and call the Customer
Care Center.
❍ Unplug this product from the wall outlet and call the Customer Care
Center if any of the following conditions exist:

Miscellaneous
If power to the MultiPASS is cut off, any documents stored in its fax
memory will be lost. Because of this, be sure to print documents stored
in memory or resend them as soon as possible. (The MultiPASS
automatically prints a Memory Clear Report when power is restored.
See page 10-26.)
While the power is out, the MultiPASS will receive telephone calls if a
telephone is attached. However, you cannot send or receive faxes. (If you
are using a cordless phone, you will not be able to make or receive calls.)
Avoid unplugging the MultiPASS unless absolutely necessary. This is the
same as a power outage.
Using Switch Boxes
Canon does not recommend using a switch box with the MultiPASS. To
use more than one printer, it’s a good idea to add a second parallel port
to your computer.

Paper Handling
One of the most important things you can do to assure the best possible
printing performance of your MultiPASS is to select the correct paper.
Your MultiPASS produces letter quality print on most plain bond
papers, including cotton bond and photocopying papers; it does not
require special ink jet papers. However, the print quality varies with
different paper types. Be sure to test a type of paper before you purchase
a large quantity.
Selecting Paper
Plain Paper
The MultiPASS supports paper sizes of letter, legal, and A4 in portrait
orientation. You can use regular copier paper, cotton bond papers, and
typical letterhead. Always use paper without curls, folds, staples, or
damaged edges. Copier paper has a preferred side for printing. Look at
the label on the package to see which side to print on.
Glossy Photo Paper
Canon Glossy Photo Paper GP-201 is a high gloss, thicker paper that
produces the look and feel of a photograph. Use this paper with the
BC-22e Photo BJ Cartridge to produce photo-realistic prints from your
printer. (Select Glossy Paper in the printer driver when you have this
paper loaded.)
Banner Paper
This paper is specifically designed for printing one continuous sheet in a
banner format. The connected sheets are divided by a perforation. You
can print from two to six sheets at one time. Canon’s Banner Paper is
specially designed for use with Bubble Jet printers and to produce bright
and vivid color images. (In your printer driver, select Plain Paper for
Media and Letter Banner for Size when you load this paper.)
Brilliant White Paper
Canon’s unique paper formulation gives you a bright white printing
surface that produces incredibly brilliant colors and dark, crisp black
text. This paper works great for proposals, color presentations, color
charts/graphs, flyers, and newsletters. You can print on both sides of
the sheet. (In your printer driver, select Plain Paper for Media when
you load this paper.)
2-2

Chapter 2
High Resolution Paper
The Canon High Resolution Paper HR-101 is designed to produce
photo-realistic quality output with sharp and vivid graphics. For best
results, use the optional BC-22e Photo BJ Cartridge to produce images
comparable to your favorite photographs.
Greeting Cards
Get the most out of your Canon Creative or other card-making software
with Canon Greeting Cards GC-101. These cards give your unique,
personalized cards the look and feel of professional cards. You can create
cards, invitations, announcements, and more.
Bubble Jet Paper (water resistant)
The Canon Bubble Jet Paper LC-301 has been developed for high quality
printing with minimal or no smearing or running when in contact with
water or damp surfaces, making it a good choice for damp or rainy
environments. The paper is specially coated and printable on both sides.
(Select Plain Paper in the printer driver when you load this paper.)
Fabric Sheets
Use Fabric Sheet FS-101 for Canon Bubble Jet products to print pillow
covers, scarves, flags, and other textile items. Use these sheets for
appliqués and other craft and sewing projects. Fabric sheets are
9.5 × 14 inches.
Back Print Film
Canon Back Print Film BF-102 has been specially developed for Canon
Color Bubble Jet printers and MultiPASS products. The film is designed
to deliver brilliant, high-intensity color images suitable for business
presentations, design work, or professional reports. Back print film is
printed on the back (nonglossy) side of the film in mirror image and
then viewed from the front (glossy) side using a backlighting device. For
more details, ask a Canon Authorized Dealer for information or refer to
the manual supplied with the film.

T-Shirt Transfers
Use Canon’s popular T-Shirt Transfers TR-101 to create and personalize
T-shirts, sweatshirts, aprons, tablecloths, napkins, tote bags, and
anything else your imagination allows! Use on any cotton or cotton/poly
blend fabric. Your image is printed in mirror image (when you use
T-Shirt Transfer mode through the MultiPASS printer driver for
Windows) so when you iron it onto the T-shirt, the image is viewed
correctly.
High Gloss Film
The Canon High Gloss Film HG-101 features a bright white finish that
lends striking visual power to charts, graphs, and photographic images.
Use this film to make your presentation materials and graphics look
professional.
Transparencies
CF-102 Transparencies from Canon are recommended. These
transparencies produce excellent contrast, sharpness, and color.
Assorted Paper Starter Kit
If you would like to try some of the papers described above, look
for Canon’s Starter Kit (SK-102). It contains an assortment of five
paper types.
Paper Guidelines
When selecting or loading paper, please remember the following:
❍ Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can
cause paper jams and poor print quality.
❍ Use cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multipart paper.
❍ When using graph paper, the lines may not match because the
1/6-inch line spacing of the printer is slightly less than that of
graph paper.
❍ 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.
❍ Do not use thicker paper than meets the specifications for this
printer. Printing with a paper that is thick enough to come in
contact with the print head nozzles may damage the BJ cartridge.

Printing
Before you can use any type of printer with your computer, you must
install a printer driver. The printer driver tells the computer what kind
of a printer you are using. The printer driver also controls the various
settings, such as print quality and paper type. You define these settings
within the printer driver, and the printer driver then communicates the
settings to both the computer and the printer.
Printer Setup Within Windows
You can use the MultiPASS with all your Windows 98 and Windows 95
applications. Be sure to set the MultiPASS as the default printer for all
your Windows operations.
Most of your printing operations are controlled by your software
application. The following sections describe how you set certain options
directly from the printer driver; you only need this information if your
application does not control printing.
You can open the Properties dialog box in one of the following ways:
❍ From within any Windows application, you can select the Print or
Print Setup command.
❍ From the Printers folder, you can select the printer and then select
the Properties command from the File menu.
❍ From the Printers folder, you can select the printer, click the right
mouse button, and then select Properties from the drop down list.
Using the Printer Driver in Windows 98/95
The printing options are displayed on these Windows 98/95 tabs:
General, Details, Paper, Graphics, and Setting. See Using the Windows
Tabs on the next page for details.

Printing Speed Versus Color
The MultiPASS Printer Driver for Windows can interpret and translate
the full spectrum of colors, up to 16.7 million colors. When printing
color, there is a significant increase in the amount of information that
the driver has to interpret and translate. When printing black ink only,
the driver has only one color to interpret.
N
You select the settings described below using the Windows tabs of the
MultiPASS Printer Driver. See Using the Windows Tabs starting on page
2-8 for details.
For Quick Color Printing
In the MultiPASS Printer Driver for Windows, choose the following
printing operations. These selections allow the printer driver to interpret
and translate 256 colors, which will increase your printing speed.
However, your print quality will not be optimized.
❍ Media Type—Plain Paper
❍ Print Quality—Standard; Fine is off
❍ Color Model—Color
❍ Print Model—Custom
❍ Color Selection—Fast Color
For High Quality Color Printing
For the MultiPASS, select the printing options shown below to allow the
printer driver to interpret and translate up to 16.7 million colors. Keep
in mind that your print speed will be slower than with other setting
combinations.
❍ Print Quality—High; Fine mode is on
❍ Color Model—Color
❍ Print Model—Automatic
Chapter 2
Printing With the MultiPASS C5500
2-13
Printing
By decreasing the amount of colors that the printer driver has to
interpret, you can significantly decrease the time needed to translate the
information. This will speed up the overall printing process.
For Monochrome Printing
Use the optional BC-20 Black BJ Cartridge to optimize the printer’s
performance when you are printing black text and graphics only.
In the printer driver, choose the following printing options to tell your
MultiPASS to print using black ink only.
❍ Media Type—Plain Paper
❍ Print Quality—Standard
❍ Color Model—Monochrome
❍ Print Model—Automatic
Other Ways to Improve Print Speed in Windows
To improve printing speed, you can try the following:
Avoid diffusion halftones
In the Custom Settings dialog box, choose Diffusion for halftoning only
when printing final output or photographic images. Choosing Fine
allows documents to print as much as 20% faster because the computer
does not need to compute to “best possible position” for each dot.
Avoid screen matched color
In the Custom Settings dialog box, avoid Match as the Color Adjustment
setting. The screen matching feature takes longer to process in the
computer because it requires special information.
Avoid automatic settings
Although the automatic settings are easy to use, the computer must
interpret the printed page. This takes more time than if you select each
setting.
Free up your memory
Use only one software program at a time and unload any screen saving
utilities or programs stored in Windows background; this frees up more
memory for Windows processing.
2-14
Printing With the MultiPASS C5500
Chapter 2
Use Monochrome when possible
If you will be printing text in black ink only, choose a Color Selection
of Black and White rather than Grayscale. Print draft documents in
Monochrome rather than Color, or use Draft print quality when
printing color.
Limit the number of colors on each page
The computer will need to calculate and transmit fewer dots per inch
(dpi). Too many colors can make the image confusing and less effective
as well as cause the print speed to slow down.
Use primary colors when printing presentation graphics
Use black, cyan, yellow, magenta, blue, green, and red when possible.
The computer will need to calculate and transfer less dot information.
Printing
Use the Draft print quality
The printer will need to image fewer dots.
Use Plain Paper as the Media Type
The print head will make only one pass for each printed line.
Use smaller graphics and more white space in your documents
The computer will be able to prepare the print file faster.
Add RAM to your computer
The computer will be able to prepare the print file faster.

Loading Paper
You can stack paper in the sheet feeder to load it automatically, or you
can manually feed one sheet at a time through the manual feed slot.
You can place approximately 100 sheets of plain paper (20 lb or
75 g/m2) in the sheet feeder at a time.
Printing
You can stack approximately 50 sheets of transparency film or 10 sheets
of back print film in the sheet feeder. However, these special media may
not advance correctly under unusual environmental conditions (such as
extreme temperatures or humidity). If you have trouble with special
papers becoming skewed or feeding multiple sheets, do not stack them
in the sheet feeder. Load them one sheet at a time.

Auto Feed Guidelines
When automatically feeding stacks of paper, follow these guidelines:
❍ Do not leave paper stacked in the printer for long periods of time;
longer sheets of paper may become bent or curled over time. This
may cause the paper to misfeed or jam.
❍ If your printed page contains lots of graphics, the ink on the page
may be damp due to the print density. Remove the page right away
and allow the ink to dry.
❍ The capacity of the paper output tray is 30 sheets of paper. To
reduce paper jams, remove paper from the output tray before the
count reaches 30.
❍ If paper curls after printing, remove it immediately; otherwise, paper
jams may occur.
Chapter 2
Printing With the MultiPASS C5500
2-21
❍ The platen (a roller on the inside of the printer) may become inked
if you print data beyond the width of the page. If this happens, clean
the platen with a soft cloth. (For details on cleaning the platen, see
page 9-4.)
❍ Depending on the density of your printed pages, the ink may need
time to dry. Within two to three seconds, the ink becomes smudge
resistant. After drying for several minutes, the ink becomes water
resistant.
D
❍ Do not try to load paper into the sheet feeder beyond the paper
limit mark ( ) or the tab on the right side of the sheet feeder;
stacking too much paper may cause paper feeding or printing
problems.

and describes special procedures required for High Resolution Paper,
Fabric Sheets, and Banner Paper.
Specialty Paper Guidelines
N
Be sure to read any instructions that come with your Canon Specialty
Paper. These instructions provide important information regarding how
to achieve the highest print quality with these papers.
Follow these guidelines:
❍ When automatically feeding transparencies or back print film,
remove each sheet after it is delivered. Do not allow film sheets to
stack up.
❍ Let the printed sheets of film or paper dry completely before storing
them.

❍ When your output has dried completely, cover its printed side
with a sheet of plain (not coated) paper before storing it; this is
recommended even if you place the sheets of film in a clear file or
plastic holder.
2-28
Printing With the MultiPASS C5500
Chapter 2
❍ When loading transparencies or back print film, insert one sheet of
plain paper as the last sheet in the stack.
❍ Do not leave the film in the sheet feeder for long periods of time.
Dust and dirt may accumulate on the film resulting in spotty
printing.
❍ To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, use a pair of thin cloth
gloves while loading and handling the film.
❍ To avoid fading, do not expose the printed film to prolonged
sunlight.
❍ Store unused film at temperatures between 59°F to 86°F (15°C to
30°C). The relative humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
Uncurling Back Print Film
If Back Print Film becomes curled, follow these steps to uncurl it:
Cover the
nonglossy side
of the film
with a sheet
of plain paper.
Roll the film
and paper up in
the direction
opposite the curl.
Chapter 2
❍ Do not roll the film too tight.
❍ The film and paper rolled together should be about one
inch (2.5 cm) in diameter.
Printing With the MultiPASS C5500
2-29
Printing
❍ Store unused papers and films flat. Do not remove papers from their
protective packaging until you are ready to use them.
Keep the film
rolled up for
about five
minutes.
❍ You may want to fasten the roll with a small piece of tape.
Canon’s High Resolution Paper HR-101
Using the Paper Output Guides
The output tray on your MultiPASS is equipped with paper output
guides. When using the optional BC-22e Photo BJ Cartridge or BC-29F
Neon BJ Cartridge to print on Canon’s High Resolution Paper HR-101,
lift the paper output guides on both sides of the output tray.
These guides help support the document as it exits the MultiPASS. The
guides keep the sheet from sagging as it exits and pulling through the
unit, which can lead to poor print quality.
❍ Lift both paper output guides until they are vertical. Always lift both
output guides.
2-30
Printing With the MultiPASS C5500
Chapter 2
❍ When the output guides are raised, the output tray can hold a
maximum of 30 sheets.
❍ When you finish using the BC-22e Photo or BC-29F Neon
BJ Cartridge with High Resolution Paper, lower the output
guides to their original position.
❍ Always lower the paper guides when using the MultiPASS as a
fax machine. The guides may cause paper to pile up and jam.
Using the Cleaning Sheet
After using a package of High Resolution Paper (200 sheets), you need
to use the cleaning sheet enclosed with the paper to remove paper dust
from the printer’s rollers; this will help prevent paper feed problems.

Printing On Banner Paper
Banner paper is a continuous sheet of paper with perforations at equal
distances along its length where it can be cut to the length required. For
best results, use Canon’s Banner Paper.
To set up a print job on banner paper, you must decide on the number
of sheets you need. You can print banners from 2 to 6 sheets in length.
N
Always leave an extra sheet at the end of the banner—just in case the
type runs over.
The shaded portions of the drawing below illustrate the maximum
recommended printing area of banner paper.
N
Printing on banner paper requires quite a bit of ink. If you think your
BJ cartridge may run out of ink, use a new BJ cartridge.
For best print results on banner paper, use light design patterns.
To prevent ink from running over the edges of the sheet, print within
the margins shown in the previous illustration.

Starting the MultiPASS Desktop Manager
When you start Windows, the MultiPASS Server is automatically
started as well. The MultiPASS Server enables and monitors the
communication between the Desktop Manager and the MultiPASS
C5500. The MultiPASS Server must be open before you can open
the Desktop Manager.
Once installed, you select the MultiPASS Desktop Manager from the
Programs list.
❍ Click the Start button and point to Programs.
❍ Point to Canon MultiPASS Desktop Manager 3.0 and then click
Canon MultiPASS Desktop Manager.
When you exit the Desktop Manager, you close only the Desktop
Manager window. Any documents you have set up to PC fax or print
remain active. The MultiPASS Server and the Send Fax Manager, which
tracks the progress of your active jobs, remain open and active.

Like any Windows toolbar, you can move either the action or document
toolbar anywhere on the Desktop Manager workspace to suit your own
working habits.
ToolTips are also available, providing descriptions of the toolbar
buttons. To display a ToolTip, pause the mouse pointer when it is
directly over a button.
Folders List
The folders list contains folders that store your documents (sorted in
alphabetical order). The list conains both system-defined folders, which
were automatically created when you installed the software, and userdefined folders, which you create as you need them. As you add folders
to the folder Cabinet, notice that the list displays similar to Windows
Explorer, in a hierarchical view.
Work Area
The work area appears to the right of the folders list and displays the
documents contained in the open folder. The documents are displayed
either as a graphic thumbnail of each document (Document View) or a
list of the documents (List view).
The width of the work area can be adjusted by dragging the border (the
split bar) between the work area and folders list.

(See Chapter 8, Setup and Other Utilities in the Desktop Manager.)
You use the process toolbar buttons as follows:
❍ Drag a document to the process button—For example, you can drag
a document from a folder or from the work area to the Print button
in order to print the document.
If a document is dragged to a button that cannot perform the
task, the mouse pointer displays as a “No” icon (a circle with a
diagonal bar drawn through it ).
❍ Highlight a document in a folder and then click a process toolbar
button—This method activates the command for the selected
document, as though the document had been dragged to the button.
❍ Double-click a launching icon—This starts the application as if it
were started from the Windows desktop.
Status Bar
The status bar displays information about the selected document or
folder, or a description of the currently selected menu or toolbar
command. It also displays the current date and time. The information is
for display only and cannot be edited.

You can also launch other Windows applications such as your e-mail
program, Paint, or WordPad. Microsoft Paint is automatically placed on
the Process toolbar. See page 8-16 for deails on how to add other
programs to the Launcher.
Using the Desktop Manager Folders
The Desktop Manager stores and organizes documents in folders. Only
one folder can be open at a time. When you open another folder, the
current folder automatically closes.
You can organize your documents in any manner you want, placing
documents in folders, or folders within folders as may be desirable.
As previously mentioned, the organization of the folders list is much
like Windows Explorer, which means you have great flexibility in
determining how best to store your documents.
System-defined Folders
When you installed the Desktop Manager, a number of system-defined
folders were automatically created—In Box, Sent Fax, Scan, Trash, and
Cabinet (which contains the folders you create). You can tell which
folder is open by the folder icon—it will look open or closed.
You cannot add new folders or documents to the system-defined folders.
The system-defined folders are reserved for use by the Desktop Manager
in the following ways:
❍ With the exception of the Trash folder, only the Desktop Manager
can place documents in system-defined folders, based on faxes sent
or received, or images scanned. Generally, you can only rename,
copy, move, or delete documents from these folders.
❍ The system-defined folders, including the Trash folder, cannot be
deleted or renamed.
❍ A document remains in a system-defined folder until you move it to
a user-defined folder, or delete it.
In Box Folder
The In Box folder is automatically open each time you start the Desktop
Manager (even if it is empty). It stores all incoming faxes that were sent
to you by other fax machines, received by your MultiPASS, and then
uploaded to your PC.
3-6
Using the MultiPASS Desktop Manager
Chapter 3
Each received fax is displayed using a system-assigned name (for
example, Untitled 0001). You can change the name to something more
descriptive by highlighting the document, and choosing the Rename
command from the Edit menu, or by clicking the right mouse button
and choosing Rename. In the Rename dialog box, type the new name
and click OK. Documents which have not been viewed in the In Box
folder display in bold.
Scan Folder
The Scan folder stores all images you scan with the MultiPASS from the
Desktop Manager. Each document displays with a system-assigned
name, which you can change.
Sent Fax Folder
The Sent Fax folder contains all documents that have been successfully
sent as PC faxes and that you requested not to be deleted after sending.
Each sent fax displays with the name “Untitled”, which you can change.
The Trash folder stores all the documents you remove from the folders
list or work area. You move a document to the Trash folder by dragging
it onto the Trash icon, or by highlighting the document and then using
the Delete key (on your keyboard), the Delete command from the Edit
menu (or by clicking the right mouse button), or the Delete toolbar
icon.
Once you move a document to the Trash folder, it remains there until
you choose the Empty Trash command from the File menu. The Empty
Trash command permanently removes all items in the Trash folder.
User-defined Folders
You can create an unlimited number of folders for your own use in the
file Cabinet; the Cabinet acts as your “root directory.” You cannot place
documents directly into the file Cabinet; you must place them in folders
within the file Cabinet.

Viewing Documents in the Desktop Manager
When you open a folder, you can view the documents which are
contained in that folder in a List View or a Document View.
When you first open the Desktop Manager, documents are automatically
displayed in List View. However, you can change to Document View at
any time by clicking the Document View button on the toolbar, or by
choosing the Document View command from the View menu.
If the number of documents within a folder exceeds the available work
area, horizontal and/or vertical scroll bars display. You can use them to
scroll the work area to view all the documents.
To open a folder, click the desired folder in the folders list.
Document View displays each individual document as a thumbnail titled
with the document name. For multiple page documents, the thumbnail
also displays the page count, as well as scroll arrows at the bottom and a
scroll box at the right side. The scroll arrows and scroll box enable you
to page through a multi-page document, displaying each page in turn or
moving to a particular page in the document.
Chapter 3

MultiPASS
Desktop Manager
Document View
Document View allows you to work with an individual document at the
page level: scrolling pages, removing a page, splitting a document, or
merging two or more documents into a single document. You can
rearrange the document thumbnails within the work area as needed by
simply dragging them to the desired location. To equally align
thumbnails, choose the Arrange command from the View menu.
To view documents in a folder as thumbnails, make sure the folder is
open. Then choose the Document View command from the View menu
or click the Document View toolbar button on the Document toolbar.
List View
List View displays documents within the open folder as a list. Each
document in the list displays an icon representing the document type,
along with other pertinent information about the document (such as its
name, page count, disk storage size, date and time of creation, and its
origin). If the document is a fax, the connection number and ID are
displayed.
The icon designates the document type as fax, scan, or modified. A
modified document is a document where the fax cover page has been
removed, a scanned document that has been annotated, or a multi-page
document that has been split into multiple documents.
3-10
Using the MultiPASS Desktop Manager
Chapter 3
Documents displayed in List View cannot be manipulated as in
Document View, such as splitting a document or merging two or more
documents. You can however, duplicate a document by highlighting it
and choosing the Duplicate command from the Edit menu, or by
clicking the right mouse button and choosing Duplicate.
To view documents in a folder as a list, make sure the folder is open.
Then choose the List View command from the View menu or click the
List View button from the Document toolbar.

also select Sort By options from the View menu, or by clicking the rightmouse button in the work area. Sorting by page, size, or date and time
displays documents with the largest document or most current
document last. The list will display in the selected order each time you
open the folder unless you change the sort option.
Setting Up the Address Book
One of the first things you'll want to do in the Desktop Manager is set
up your Address Book. Setting up an Address Book creates an easily
accessible list of names and fax/phone/e-mail numbers for all of your
business and personal contacts. Using the entries from the Address Book
makes sending a PC fax quick and easy.
Opening the Address Book
On the Tools menu or toolbar, click Address Book.

Working With Address Book Entries
There are two types of Address Book entries:
Individual
An individual entry allows you to identify each individual to whom you
frequently send PC faxes. Once entered, you can quickly specify the
recipient of a PC fax by selecting them from the Address Book.
Group
A group entry identifies two or more individual Address Book entries to
whom you repeatedly send the same PC fax. For example, you may want
to set up a group to include those individuals involved in a particular
business project. When you specify the group entry as the fax recipient
on your PC fax, the PC fax is sent to each individual in the group.
Sorting the Address Book
The Address Book is, by default, sorted alphabetically by last name. You
can change the sort by clicking on any column title. To return the sort to
its previous state, click the column title again.

Sending Faxes With
the MultiPASS C5500

You can use the MultiPASS C5500 to send paper faxes or PC faxes.
PC faxing is the ability to send a fax from an application without first
printing the document. Using the MultiPASS C5500 and the MultiPASS
Desktop Manager, you can PC fax documents from any Windows
application that supports printing.
You can also set up an Address Book, containing fax and e-mail
information for people to whom you often send faxes, and design your
own fax cover page. To assist you in managing your faxes, a Fax Log
maintains a record of every fax you send or receive.
You can also customize your MultiPASS printer by changing the factory
default user settings. This might include the date format that displays on
your faxed documents, or how many times the MultiPASS calls another
fax unit if the other party’s line is initially busy. You can also register
one-touch/coded speed dial and group numbers using the Desktop
Manager and then download them to the MultiPASS. For details on
changing setup options, refer to Chapter 8, Setup and Other Utilities in
the Desktop Manager.

Adjusting the Quality of Your Faxes
Setting the Resolution
Resolution is a measure of the fineness or clarity of a printout and is
usually expressed in horizontal and vertical dots per inch (dpi). Low
resolutions may cause text and graphics to have a jagged appearance,
while higher resolutions provide smoother curves and lines, crisp text
and graphics, and a better match to traditional typeface designs.
Chapter 4
Sending Faxes With the MultiPASS C5500

Sending Faxes
Canon’s Ultra High Quality (UHQ™) imaging technology enables you
to send faxes that have a print quality very close to that of the original
document. The MultiPASS also allows you to adjust the resolution and
contrast it uses in sending faxes to best suit your particular document.
The MultiPASS has three resolution settings. You use the B&W FAX/COPY
button to set the resolution for faxing documents.
❍ FAX STANDARD
Fax standard resolution (203 × 98 dpi) is adequate for most text
documents.
❍ FAX FINE
Fax fine resolution (203 × 196 dpi) is suited for documents with fine
print (smaller than the print in this sentence).
❍ FAX PHOTO
Fax photo resolution (203 × 196 dpi, 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 gray, rather than just two (black and white) which it uses
otherwise. This gives a much better reproduction of the photos,
though transmission time is longer.

MultiPASS uses for sending faxes (Darker, Standard, or Lighter) through
the Advanced: Send Fax dialog box in the MultiPASS Desktop Manager.
(See page 8-5 for details.) Standard is the default, and is adequate for
most documents. To darken a light original, choose Darker; to lighten
a dark original, use Lighter.

Specifying a Fax Recipient
You must specify at least one fax recipient—the individual and/or group
to whom you want to send the fax. When specifying a recipient, you can
enter one-time information and/or include one or more recipients from
your Address Book.
A one-time recipient is specified by entering the recipient’s name (First
Name and Last Name), Company name, and Fax number in the
corresponding boxes of the Send Fax dialog box. In some office
environments, you may also need to enter a prefix for the fax number,
which is the number required to connect you to an outside phone line
(usually 9). If so, click the Use Outside Dialing Prefix option so that a
check appears. You define the outside dialing prefix in the Fax Setup
options; see page 8-4).

For instructions on editing a cover page, refer to Designing a Fax Cover
Page on page 4-31.
Deleting the fax after sending
If you select the Delete after Sending option, the fax is automatically
deleted after it has been successfully transmitted. This option makes it
easy to keep your computer free of unneeded documents, thereby
maximizing your available disk space.
If you do not select this option, the fax is automatically moved from the
Send Fax Manager to the Sent Fax folder after transmission.
Including annotations
Using the editing capabilities of the MultiPASS Viewer (described
in Chapter 7, Working With Documents in the Desktop Manager, you
may have modified your document—for example, by adding text
annotations, graphic or text stamps, or highlighting. In this case, you
can choose to include these modifications by clicking the Include
Annotations option.
If you do not select this option, the original version of the document is
faxed, without any added annotations.
Processing the Fax
You can send your fax—either now or later—only when you have
specified at least one recipient and fax number. As necessary, you can
also place a fax on hold and return to it later. The following sections
provide additional information on these processing options.
Sending the fax now
When you click Send Now, the fax document is sent to the Send Fax
Manager until it is transmitted. Once transmission is complete, the fax
is either moved to the Sent Fax folder or deleted, based on whether you
enabled or disabled the Delete after Sending option.

Because the fax memo is not originating from a document created in
another Windows application, be sure to enter the memo message in the
Memo box. Also, because your fax memo does not originate from a
document that may have been annotated in the MultiPASS Viewer, the
Include Annotations option is not available.
The MultiPASS Desktop Manager sends the PC fax to the Send Fax
Manager, where it is automatically given a unique system-assigned
name, and its progress is tracked until it is actually transmitted. If you
specified multiple recipients, an individual fax job for each recipient,
with its own fax job number, is sent to the Send Fax Manager. Once
transmitted, the fax is placed in your Sent Fax folder (unless you
specified that it be deleted after transmission). A record of the sent
fax is also recorded to the Fax Log.

One of the following statuses is assigned to each job in the Send Fax
Manager.
Active
The active job is the fax currently being PC faxed. When an active job
completes successfully, it is automatically moved to the Sent Fax folder
or deleted (based on whether you specified to delete after sending in the
Send Fax dialog box).
Queued
A queued job is a fax waiting to be PC faxed. Queued jobs are processed
in chronological order.
Scheduled
A scheduled job is a PC fax you specified to send at a later time.
Retry
A job receives the Retry status if the MultiPASS printer is busy with
another task, and unable to transmit the PC fax.
The Desktop Manager continues to try sending the fax until the
transmission is successful or the Desktop Manager exceeds the defined
number of retries. If a job cannot complete successfully within the
specified number of retries, the job is marked with a Failed status. The
job remains in the Send Fax Manager until you reprocess or delete it.
Failed
A job receives a Failed status because a PC fax could not be sent
successfully. This occurs because the Desktop Manager exceeded the
defined number of retries. For example, a PC fax may have failed
because of a continuously busy fax line or an incorrect fax number.
When a job is changed to a Failed status, you will see a Fax Failed icon in
the notification area of the Windows taskbar. A failed job remains in the
Send Fax Manager until you attempt to reprocess or delete it.
Stopped
A stopped job is an active fax that you stopped from processing before it
was completed. The stopped job remains in the Send Fax Manager until
you attempt to reprocess or delete it.
Chapter 4

On Hold
A held job is a PC fax you chose to place on hold, rather than send it
immediately. The held job remains in the Send Fax Manager until you
choose to send or delete it.
Stopping an Active Job
If necessary, you can stop the active job from processing. When you do
so, the Desktop Manager retains the job in the Send Fax Manager as a
stopped job. You can later reprocess or delete the job.
To stop an active job, open the Send Fax Manager and click Stop on the
toolbar, or choose the Delete command from the Edit menu.
Sending a Scheduled, Held, Failed, or Stopped PC Fax
A PC fax job remains in the Send Fax Manager if it is scheduled for
sending later, if it is on hold, if it failed to transmit in the specified
number of retries, or it was stopped. You can reprocess the job for
sending now or rescheduling it for a different time.
When you send a PC fax from the Send Fax Manager, the Send Fax
dialog box displays the information you initially entered for the PC fax.
You can change the information as needed. For example, for a PC fax
that failed because of a wrong fax number, you can correct the fax
number and resend it. Or, for a scheduled PC fax, you can specify a
different time for transmission.
Additionally, if a cover page had been attached to the fax, you can edit
any memo text or the cover page styles.

Adjusting Text and Variable Fields
Once you have placed the desired text labels and variable fields into the
layout area, you can adjust the appearance of any text or data field. You
can resize, move, or delete text or data fields. When you delete a data
field, the field is removed from the layout area and returned to the
variables bin.
Additionally, you can set the text attributes for text or data fields and
align two or more fields on the right, left, top, or bottom.
❍ To select text or data field in the layout area:
•
To select a single text box or data field, click the Select tool from
the Annotations toolbox, then click the text box or data field.
•
To select more than one text box or data field, hold down the
Shift key and click the desired text and/or data fields.
❍ To move text or data fields, drag the selected text box or data field to
the new location.
❍ To delete a text box or data field, select the text box or data field and
press the Delete key.
With the exception of the Memo field, most of the variable fields consist
of a single line of text. If the variable information to be placed in the
field is longer than the field size, the text does not automatically wrap
onto the next line. Instead, the text is truncated to fit the length of the
field. For this reason, you may want to resize fields to ensure that the full
line of text is visible on the cover page when the fax is sent.
Because the Memo field typically contains multiple text lines, this
variable field does provide for automatic text wrapping. However, make
sure the size of the Memo field is large enough to accommodate the
length of memo text that you may enter in the Send Fax dialog box. If
the Memo field is not large enough, not all the lines of a memo text may
be visible when the fax cover page is sent.
To resize the field, click the field and drag any sizing handle.

Rather than add text directly to a cover page, as you do with the Text
tool, you can add a Sticky-Note on any portion of your cover page as a
graphic element.
When you add a Sticky-Note, you can choose the text attributes: font,
font size and color, background color, and special effects (underline,
strikeout).
You can type any text that you want for the Sticky-Note, editing the note
later if necessary. If you select a font, font size, a color, or special effect, it
affects the entire note. If you change any of the attributes while editing a
note, or while the note is selected, it changes all the text in the note.

Receiving Documents Automatically—Fax Only Mode
When you set up the MultiPASS for a dedicated fax line, the unit is
prepared to automatically receive a document whenever a call comes
over the fax line. If a voice call comes in, the caller will hear the fax tone.
Receiving Both Documents and Telephone Calls
Automatically—Fax/Tel Mode
In Fax/Tel Mode, the MultiPASS monitors all incoming calls over the
telephone line. When the MultiPASS receives an incoming call, it checks
to see if the call is from another fax machine trying to send a document
or from someone wanting to talk to you. You must have a telephone
connected to the MultiPASS to use this mode.
How Fax/Tel Mode Works
In Fax/Tel Mode, a telephone attached to the MultiPASS will not ring
when it receives a call from another fax machine that is trying to send a
document. This is so that you are not disturbed when your MultiPASS
is communicating with another fax machine. The unit automatically
receives the document.
If the call is from a person, the MultiPASS rings to alert you to pick up
the phone. You must pick up the telephone connected to the MultiPASS.
If you do not pick up the telephone connected to the MultiPASS within
15 seconds (set by the Ring Time option), the unit stops ringing. It
checks again to make sure the call is not from a fax machine and then
hangs up.
N
The MultiPASS does not recognize an extension telephone connected to
another phone jack (that is, not connected to the MultiPASS).
If a call comes in and you pick up an extension phone, the telephone
connected to the MultiPASS will continue to ring for 15 seconds, check
for a fax, and then hang up.

Chapter 5
Receiving Documents Manually—Manual Mode
You will want to set your MultiPASS to receive documents manually
when you want to personally check each incoming call to see if it is from
a fax or from a person. You must have a telephone attached to the
MultiPASS.
When the telephone attached to the MultiPASS rings, pick up the
telephone.
❍ If you hear a person’s voice, start your conversation. If the caller
wants to send a document after talking to you, confirm that the
document is loaded and request that the caller press the START
button. Wait on the line until you hear a slow beep or silence
(depending on the sending fax unit), then press START/COPY to
receive the document.
❍ If you hear a slow beep or silence, another fax is trying to send you a
document. Press START/COPY.
Your MultiPASS begins receiving the document.
❍ Hang up the telephone after the MultiPASS displays RECEIVE. If you
don’t hang up, the MultiPASS beeps intermittently for a few seconds
after you receive the document. To disable the beeping, turn off the
Off Hook Alarm option in the Advanced: Send Fax dialog box. (See
page 8-5 for details.)
Using the Telephone for Remote Reception of a Fax
If you pick up the handset of the telephone connected to the MultiPASS
and you hear a fax tone, you can start receiving the document manually
by entering a two-digit ID code from the phone. This is particularly
convenient if you are using a cordless phone and you answer the phone
away from the MultiPASS.
Chapter 5
Receiving Faxes
Receiving Faxes
To use this feature, the telephone must be plugged into the telephone
jack of the MultiPASS (see your Quick Start Guide for details). The
Remote Receive option must be enabled in the Advanced: Receive Fax
dialog box. (The default is enabled.) For details, see page 8-9.
5-3
Use the telephone to receive manual calls as follows:
1. When you answer a call and hear a long beep or silence, a fax is
being sent.
2. Enter the two-digit ID code on your telephone (the default code is
25). Wait for five seconds, then hang up. The MultiPASS then begins
receiving the document.
N
If you have an answering machine connected to your MultiPASS and
you can control your answering machine from a remote telephone, make
sure the security code for this function is different than the two-digit ID
code described above. You change the two-digit ID code used by the
MultiPASS to make it distinct from the answering machine’s security
code. See page 8-11.
Using an Answering Machine—Ans. Machine Mode
Connecting an answering machine to the MultiPASS allows you to
receive faxes and phone messages while you are out of the office.
In Answer Machine Mode, the MultiPASS 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 tone or a four-second silence. (Four
seconds is the default; you can change this value.)

5-4
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. 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. Or, you
can see if your telephone company offers a Distinctive Ring Pattern
(DRP) service (see page 5-9 for details).

Chapter 5
Using the MultiPASS With an Answering Machine
Follow these guidelines when using the MultiPASS with an answering
machine:
❍ Set the answering machine to answer on the first or second ring.
❍ If the MultiPASS runs out of paper or ink in Answer Machine Mode,
it receives all faxes into its memory. The faxes then print
automatically when you add paper or replace the BJ cartridge.
❍ When recording the outgoing message on the answering machine:
•
•
The entire message must be no more than 15 seconds long.
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.”
Printing Documents Received in Memory
If one of the following errors occurs while the MultiPASS is receiving
a document, the unit stores the document in memory:
❍ BJ cartridge runs out of ink
❍ BJ cartridge is not installed
❍ Sheet feeder runs out of paper
❍ Paper jam occurs
The MultiPASS can store up to 42 letter-size pages (based on the CCITT
No. 1 chart) or 20 separate documents.
Chapter 5
Receiving Faxes
Receiving Faxes
The LCD display shows REC’D IN MEMORY alternating with the error
message when the memory contains documents. The MultiPASS will
automatically print the contents of memory when you correct the
problem and press the STOP button.

After printing the document(s) stored in memory, the MultiPASS erases
the document(s) from memory.
N
If you are using the MultiPASS Desktop Manager and it is set to Save in
memory, the MultiPASS stores incoming faxes in its memory when the
computer is off. In this case, you will see the REC’D IN FILE message. See
Receiving Faxes to The MultiPASS Desktop Manager below for details.
Receiving While Copying, Printing,
or Registering
Because the MultiPASS supports multitasking, you can receive a
document or a phone call while you are:
❍ Making a copy
❍ Printing a document
❍ Entering information
If you are making copies or printing a document and the MultiPASS
receives a fax, it stores the document in its memory. It then prints the
document as soon as you finish making copies or printing. If you are
entering information into the LCD menu system and the MultiPASS
receives a fax, it prints the document immediately (it does not store
the document in memory).
Receiving Faxes to the MultiPASS
Desktop Manager
When your computer is on, you can automatically receive incoming
faxes to the MultiPASS Desktop Manager.
When your computer is off, the MultiPASS stores received faxes in its
memory until you either print them or you turn on the computer. When
you turn on the computer, you can send the faxes to the MultiPASS
Desktop Manager.
The MultiPASS can also print incoming faxes directly. If your computer
is going to be off for a while and you are expecting incoming faxes, it’s a
good idea to set the MultiPASS to automatically print incoming faxes.

Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection
(DRPD) Feature
Some phone companies offer a distinctive ring pattern (DRP) service
whereby they assign two or more telephone numbers with distinctive
ring patterns to a single telephone line. If your phone company offers
such a service, you can have both a fax number(s) and a telephone
number(s) for your MultiPASS using only one telephone line.
Your MultiPASS will automatically detect incoming calls. Based on the
distinctive ring pattern, the MultiPASS knows if the call is from a fax
machine trying to send a document or from a telephone trying to make
a voice call.
Use the information in this section to set up the MultiPASS for use with
a DRP service. For more details on the DRP service, contact your local
telephone company. (Your telephone company may have a different
name for this service. Also, this service may not be offered in all areas.)
Types of Ring Patterns
Your telephone company will assign a distinctive ring pattern to each
number when you order the DRP service. The setting you make in the
MultiPASS must match the setting assigned by the telephone company.
You can set the MultiPASS for the following ring patterns:
❍ Normal ring—Ring type of normal telephone line
(Recommended for voice calls)
❍ Double ring—Two short rings at regular intervals
(Recommended for fax calls)
❍ Triple ring—Short-short-long at regular intervals
❍ Triple ring—Short-long-short at regular intervals
❍ Other ring type—Patterns other than those described above
You must set all DRPD ring numbers in the MultiPASS. You select the
ring pattern and then specify whether the pattern is for telephone calls,
faxes, or both (fax/tel switching). See the next section for details.
Chapter 5

Receiving Faxes
You set the DRPD Switch Options in the Advanced: Receive Fax dialog
box (see page 8-11 for details).
How DRPD Responds to Calls
When there is an incoming call, the MultiPASS checks the incoming
ring pattern and determines the type of pattern being received. The
MultiPASS may require up to 10 seconds to determine the pattern type.
During this time, any telephone device connected to the MultiPASS will
not ring. After the pattern is detected, the MultiPASS reacts according to
how you registered the setting.

Communicating Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern
Detection (DRPD) Feature
Using the MultiPASS with a DRP service is almost the same
as using it with a normal telephone line.
When you turn on DRPD, the Receive Mode defaults to Fax/Tel Mode.
(You cannot change this Receive Mode.)
When someone calls using the number assigned for telephone
communication, the MultiPASS rings in the pattern you registered
for telephone calls. When you hear this pattern, simply pick up the
telephone connected to the MultiPASS and talk. If you do not pick up
the telephone, the MultiPASS continues to ring until the other party
hangs up.
When someone sends a fax using the number assigned for fax
communication, the MultiPASS does not ring. It receives the
document automatically.

Scanning With the
MultiPASS C5500
You can use the MultiPASS C5500 to scan documents from the Desktop
Manager, or from any TWAIN-compliant Windows application.
When you scan a document in the Desktop Manager, the ScanGear
window displays, allowing you to set certain scanning options and
conditions. This chapter provides instructions on setting scan options
using the ScanGear window.
When you scan a document in a Windows application, the application
may or may not display the ScanGear window. If the ScanGear window
is not displayed, see the documentation for the Windows application
you are working in for instructions on setting scan options.
Typically, when you scan a document using the ScanGear window, you
first scan a preview of the document. The preview image allows you to
review the results of your scanned document and make any necessary
adjustments (for example, to size, tone, and so on). When you are
satisfied with the results, you then perform the final scan of the
document. The system then places the final image into the Desktop
Manager or your Windows application.

Creating a Custom Tone Curve
If you want to experiment with tones, you can create a custom tone
curve. An effective way to do this is first to adjust the preview image
with an appropriate predefined tone curve and then edit the results.
Editing a tone curve involves adding handles to an existing tone curve
and dragging them to change tonal levels in the image. When you drag a
handle to a white area, the shape of the curve changes, and the tones of
the preview image are adjusted.
All handles on the tone curve, including the end points, can be dragged
anywhere within the tone graph. A handle that is dragged outside the
tone graph is deleted, and the tone curve automatically conforms to the
remaining points. Except for the end points, you can delete all handles.

Copying a Document
A document can be copied within the same user-defined folder, or
from one folder to a different user-defined folder. When you copy a
document within the same folder, the copy is assigned the same name as
the original document, with an added unique number. For example, if
you copy a document called Document 1, the new copy will be named
Document 2.
1. Open the folder with the document you want to copy.
2. Click the document to highlight it, then click the Duplicate button
on the Document toolbar, or choose the Duplicate command
from the Edit menu. Or, right-click on the document and select
Duplicate.
Copying a Document From One Folder to Another
1. Open the folder with the document you want to copy.
2. Drag the document, while holding down the Ctrl key, to the desired

Renaming a Document or Folder
You can rename a user-defined folder or a document at any time. Folder
names must be unique within the Desktop Manager. Document names
must be unique within a folder.
Whenever you attempt to rename a folder or document, the system
verifies whether the new name is unique. In the event of a conflict, the
system alerts you of the conflict. A folder or document name can
contain blank spaces.

Manipulating a Document in Document View
If you are working in Document View, you can manipulate your
documents in the open folder in a variety of ways. For example, you can
arrange documents in a preferred order, remove a page, split a single
document, or merge one document with another.
Arranging Documents in Document View
A document thumbnail in Document View retains its position until you
rearrange it. You can arrange one or more documents manually or
automatically.
When you arrange documents automatically, they are positioned within
a grid, with row positions filling from left to right.
Arranging documents manually
With the desired folder open, select the document you want to move
and drag it to the desired location within the work area.
Arranging documents automatically
With the desired folder open, choose the Arrange command from the
View menu or the Document toolbar, or click the right mouse button in
the work area and choose Arrange.
Scrolling Through a Multi-page Document
You can scroll through a multiple-page document to position yourself at
the page you want to remove or where you want to split the document.
As you scroll pages in the document, the current page number updates
instantly. After scrolling, the top page is retained even if the folder is
closed and reopened.
For the selected document, do one of the following.
❍ Click the left and right scroll arrows displayed with the page
numbers for the document.
7-10
Working With Documents in the Desktop Manager
Chapter 7
❍ Drag the scroll tab on the right side of the document.
You can remove the current top page of a document. For example, you
may want to remove the cover page from a received fax.
1. Scroll through the document until the page you want to remove is
on top.
2. Choose the Remove Page command from the Edit menu or the
Document toolbar.
Splitting a Document
As may be desirable, you can split a document into two documents
from any page after the first page. In other words, you cannot split a
document on page 1. For example, you split a 10-page document,
beginning at page 5. The original document consists of pages 1 through
4. The newly created document consists of pages 5 through 10.
The original document—consisting of at least the first page, up to the
page where the split occurred—retains the original name. The newly
created document is assigned a new unique name, which can be changed
as desired.
1. Scroll to the page where you want to split the document. The top
page represents the first page for the newly created document.
2. Choose the Split command from the Edit menu or Document
toolbar.

index your documents, adding keywords and other parameters that you
can use later when searching for documents.
To index your documents, you first set up your index and then you
assign the index criteria to your documents.

With different tools in the MultiPASS Viewer, you can adjust both the
size of your document as well as the manner in which it is displayed.
Adjusting the Size of a Document
Adjusting the size of a document can be useful in planning other tasks.
For example, if a document consists solely of a large graphic, you may
want to reduce its size so that it can be used later in creating a
background for a cover page.
Changing the size of a document involves changing the number of pixels
used to represent it. Such a change permanently alters the document file.

Fax Setup
The Desktop Manager contains setup options that define the fax
operation of your MultiPASS C5500 and that affect the general
operation of the Desktop Manager. You can set options that affect
preferences, sending a PC fax, receiving a fax, and using the speed
dial features.
When you first install the Desktop Manager, setup options are set to
appropriate default settings. The default settings enable you to begin
using your MultiPASS with the Desktop Manager immediately. However,
you can change option settings as needed.
Because you can make changes to some option settings either on the
MultiPASS unit or in the Desktop Manager, be aware of the following:
❍ Any option setting you make on the MultiPASS unit does not display
in the Desktop Manager Setup Options dialog box.
❍ Any change you make to an option in the Desktop Manager
overrides the corresponding setting you may have made on the
MultiPASS unit itself.
Therefore, before you make changes to these option settings, decide
where you prefer to make your changes—on the MultiPASS unit or in
the Desktop Manager. Establishing a preference for changes will help you
avoid overriding your previous settings.
N
When the MultiPASS is connected to your PC, we recommend that you
use the Fax Setup dialog box in the Desktop Manager. Do not make your
changes using the operator panel of the MultiPASS.
The following instructions summarize the overall procedures for
changing MultiPASS Fax Setup options in the Desktop Manager.

Listen Time Before Ringing
When a call is received, the MultiPASS checks to see if the call is from a
fax machine or a telephone. If the MultiPASS does not have enough time
to detect the fax tone, it assumes the call is from a telephone. You use
this option to set the appropriate amount of time to allow the
MultiPASS to check for the type of call.
Ring Time
When your MultiPASS is set to receive both fax and telephone calls, it
rings to inform you of an incoming telephone call. If you do not pick up
the telephone within a certain amount of time, the MultiPASS stops
ringing. You use this option to set the appropriate amount of time the
MultiPASS should ring.
Ring Tone
You can set the volume level of the ring tone.
Default Action If No Answer to Telephone
You set this option to Receive if you want the MultiPASS to handle an
incoming call, detected as a telephone call that is not answered, as an
incoming fax. If no fax is received, the line is then disconnected. If you
set this option to Disconnect, the MultiPASS automatically disconnects
the unanswered call, without trying to receive a fax.
Answering Machine Mode Options
You use this option only if you set the Receive mode on the Receive Fax
tab to answering machine mode, and your fax sender may be using a fax
machine that does not emit a send fax signal.
Receive Fax If No Signal
Select this option to have the MultiPASS automatically receive a call as a
fax call if a send fax signal is not detected for the number of seconds you
specify. Clear this option to have the MultiPASS remain in answering
machine mode even if no send fax signal is detected. If no sound is
detected by the MultiPASS (such as the caller speaking to leave a
message), the answering machine disconnects.

Attention Needed
The MultiPASS needs your attention for situations such as the
MultiPASS being out of paper. The MultiPASS Server window describes
the nature of the attention required.
When you have corrected the situation, the status message automatically

Error Warning
The MultiPASS has a problem that needs your immediate attention, such
as when the MultiPASS Server can no longer detect the MultiPASS. The
MultiPASS Server window displays the nature of the problem with a
comment indicating a corrective action.
When you have corrected the situation, the status message automatically
clears.
Closing the MultiPASS Server
If you decide you need to disconnect the MultiPASS from the designated
port and/or attach another device to the port, you should close the
MultiPASS Server first. If you close the MultiPASS Server first, you avoid
receiving error messages when the MultiPASS Server detects it can no
longer communicate with the MultiPASS.

MultiPASS Server is automatically reopened if your MultiPASS has been
reconnected to the port. You can also open the MultiPASS Server from
the Windows desktop without opening the Desktop Manager.
If you are closing the MultiPASS Server, you may want to set the
MultiPASS to print any received faxes (see page 8-7 for details on setting
Receive Conditions). With the MultiPASS Server closed, received faxes
cannot be moved to the Desktop Manager.
Received faxes can be stored in memory on the MultiPASS. However, if
the memory becomes full, the MultiPASS is unable to receive more faxes
until you print the faxes stored in memory.
Before closing the MultiPASS Server, close the MultiPASS Desktop
Manager. Then, in the notification area of the Windows taskbar, click the
right mouse button on the MultiPASS Server icon and click Close.

BJ Cartridge Guidelines
You can use these cartridges with the MultiPASS:
❍ BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge
Contains the print head unit and two replaceable
BJ tanks, one color (cyan, magenta, yellow) and
one black. You can replace the BJ tanks without
replacing the print head unit when you run out of
ink.
❍ BC-20 Black BJ Cartridge
Contains the print head unit and black ink only. Use
this optional cartridge when you will be printing
with black ink only and for fast, five page per minute
printing. When you run out of ink, you replace the
complete cartridge.
❍ BC-29F Neon BJ Cartridge
Contains the print head unit and neon color and black inks. Use this
optional cartridge when you want to add hot new colors to
everything from your business graphs to stickers for your kids.
These amazing, bright fluorescent colors make your pictures, graphs,
and fun images really stand out. When you run out of ink, you
replace the complete cartridge.

❍ BC-22e Photo BJ Cartridge
Contains the print head unit and color and black
inks. Use this optional cartridge when you want to
produce photo-realistic color printing. When used
with Canon’s High Resolution Paper (HR-101), this
ink produces images comparable to your favorite
photographs. When you run out of ink, you replace the complete
cartridge.
BJ Cartridge and BJ Tank Maintenance
The most important thing you can do to extend the life of your
MultiPASS and to ensure optimum print quality is take
care of the BJ cartridges.
C
Spilled ink can stain any surface. Open BJ cartridges and BJ tanks
carefully, and follow the guidelines presented here to protect against
spilled ink.
❍ If you are using both the BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge and any of the
optional BJ cartridges, make sure you store the cartridge not being
used in the Ink Cartridge Storage Box.
❍ Keep BJ cartridges and BJ tanks in their sealed containers until you
are ready to use them.
❍ Do not remove the BJ tanks from the BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge
unnecessarily. This may cause the ink to clog.
❍ Make sure both BJ tanks are installed in the BC-21e Color
BJ Cartridge. Attempting to use the BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge
with one BJ tank only may cause ink clogging.
❍ If spilled, the ink is difficult to remove. Therefore, it’s a good idea to
keep the BJ cartridges and BJ tanks out of the reach of children.
❍ Do not touch the print head area on the BJ cartridge. Ink may leak
out and cause stains.
C
Hold the BJ cartridge on the sides only. Do not touch the silver plate on
the bottom of the BJ cartridge or the silver metal or circuit area on the
side. The metal area may become hot during printing.

Using Ink
Canon has more engineers dedicated to creating quality ink for
providing the best results for output on Bubble Jet printers than any
other organization. Canon does not prohibit the use of third-party
inks and the use of third-party inks does not invalidate the product’s
limited warranty. However, Canon cannot guarantee the quality or
performance of your printer when you are using inks from other
suppliers.
Canon’s limited warranty does not cover damage caused to Canon’s
Bubble Jet products that is attributable to the use of third party parts or
supplies, including inks. The limited warranty remains in effect for its
life once that particular damage has been properly repaired.
N
For optimum printing results, Canon recommends that you use the
Canon BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge or the optional Canon BC-20 Black,
BC-22e Photo, and BC-29F Neon BJ Cartridges with your MultiPASS.
When replacing BJ tanks in the BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge, Canon
recommends that you use the Canon BCI-21 Color and BCI-21 Black
BJ Tanks.
The actual amount of ink that you use will vary depending on the print
density of a page. If the majority of your output is graphics, you may
need to change cartridges or tanks more often than when you are
printing text only. See Appendix A, Specifications, for details on the life
expectancy of the BJ cartridges.
You may need to replace the BJ cartridge or a BJ tank when any of the
following conditions exist:
❍ You have been using the cartridge for over one year.
❍ Your printed output is not crisp and clear, and there are gaps in the
characters (missing dots) even after you have cleaned the print head
at least five times.
❍ You see the CHANGE CARTRIDGE message in the LCD.

Replacing the BJ Cartridge
If you are using the BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge and your output is
blank, one of the BJ tanks is probably out of ink. See the instructions
starting on page 9-16 for replacing a BJ tank.
The following procedure describes how to replace the BC-21e Color
BJ Cartridge with the optional BC-20 Black BJ Cartridge. Follow the
instructions in this section to replace an old BJ cartridge or to change
BJ cartridges when you are switching between the BC-21e and any of the
optional BJ cartridges.
You only need to replace the BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge when the print
head is damaged (or after printing approximately 2000 pages). If one of
the BJ tanks (either color or black) in your BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge is
out of ink, see the next section (page 9-16) for instructions on how to
replace a BJ tank.

Blue looks like purple
Blue prints out as purple
because of the difference in
color technology used by
the screen and printer; the
screen uses RGB (Red, Green,
Blue) color and the MultiPASS
uses CMYK (Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow, Black) color. Due to the
technology differences, when
cyan and magenta are mixed
together, blue prints dark blue
or purple compared to the screen.
Within the MultiPASS printer
driver, selecting Match (screen
match) in the Color Adjustment
dialog box of the Custom Setting
window will result in a lighter
blue. If you are not using
screen matching, decreasing
the amount of magenta by 30%
produces a royal blue.
If you are just looking for a
nice blue color, try cyan. It
prints beautifully and fast
and is available in almost all
applications that support color.

Technical Notes
Using Other Bi-directional Devices
If you have another bi-directional device (such as a Windows Printing
System printer or a later-model laser printer) installed on your computer
and you are attempting to use the same port on which you have the
MultiPASS connected, you may experience undesirable results when
printing a document.
Be sure the MultiPASS is the only device configured to a particular port.
The MultiPASS operates properly only with a dedicated parallel port.
MultiPASS Hardware Cannot Initialize
If you see the following screen during the installation process, try to
solve the problem by following the procedures below.
2. Check both ends of the printer cable—at the computer and at the
MultiPASS—to confirm that the cable is securely fastened.
3. Confirm that the MultiPASS is configured for the correct parallel
port in the Details tab of the Printer Properties. In addition, confirm
that there are no port conflicts in the Device Manager tab of the
System Properties.
Chapter 10
Troubleshooting
10-25
Troubleshooting
1. Confirm that the MultiPASS unit is plugged into a power source and
that the date and Receive Mode are displayed in the LCD before
turning on the PC or starting Windows. It is recommended that the
MultiPASS be connected directly to an AC outlet and not a power
strip to which your computer is connected.
4. Remove any pass-through devices, switch boxes, zip drives, tape
backups, docking stations, scanners, and any software associated
with these products. The software drivers for these products are
customarily executed from the Load and Run lines of the computer’s
Win.ini or the StartUp Group. Please refer to the product’s
manufacturer for information on how to properly remove the
hardware and software.
5. If the above procedures do not resolve the problem, please call the
Canon Computer Systems Customer Care Center. See page 1-4 for
details.

If the error message clears, be sure to start up your system and check the
MultiPASS. The problem may be cleared.
Memory Clear Report
The Memory Clear Report summarizes the documents that were cleared
from memory when a power failure occurred. This report is generated
automatically.
❍ If you experience a power failure, any documents stored in memory
will be lost.
❍ When you turn on the MultiPASS after power is restored, the
MultiPASS automatically prints out a list of documents that were
stored in the memory at the time of the power failure.

Dialing fax or telephone numbers by using a shortcut of pressing one to
three buttons. To use automatic dialing, you must register the numbers
in the MultiPASS Desktop Manager. See also one-touch speed dialing
keypad, coded speed dialing, and group dialing.
Automatic redialing
When the receiving fax machine is busy or does not answer, or when an
error occurs while sending, the MultiPASS waits a specified amount of
time and then automatically redials the number. You define the number
of times the unit redials and the length of time between redialing.
Bi-directional parallel interface port
An interface connection that is capable of both sending or receiving. For
example, when you print and when you send a fax from your computer,
data goes from your computer to the MultiPASS; when you scan and
when you receive a fax into your computer, data goes from the
MultiPASS to your computer.
BJ cartridge
The printing mechanism that contains the print head unit and BJ tanks.
BJ tank
The special type of ink container housed by the BJ cartridge. The
BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge contains two BJ tanks: one color—BCI-21
Color (which includes cyan, yellow, magenta) and one black—BCI-21
Black.

means that you can press just one to three buttons to enter numbers
when sending the same document to many destinations.
Halftone
Using this method, the MultiPASS (in printer mode) produces shades of
gray or of colors by mapping dots to be printed. For color printing,
different colored dots of ink are placed closely together to create
illusions of other colors.
IEEE 1284
IEEE 1284 is the new specification standard for computer-to-peripheral
bi-directional parallel interface communications. The new standard was
adopted by IEEE, Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc., in
1993. Some of the benefits it provides are: bi-directional communication
between computers and peripheral devices, a higher speed data transfer
rate, and protection against data loss due to noise interference.
