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.

Using the Printer With Windows 2
This chapter describes how to use the printer with your Windows
applications. It includes:
❍ Using a printer driver
Using the Printer
With Windows
❍ Printing a document
❍ Printer setup within Windows 98 and Windows 95
❍ Printer setup within Windows 3.1
❍ The Windows tabs

Using a Printer Driver
Before you can use any type of printer with your computer, you must
install software that allows the printer and computer to communicate;
the software is called 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.
N

You must install the BJC-1000 Series Printer Driver for Windows before
you can use the printer with your computer. If you are using Windows
98 or Windows 95, see your Quick Start Guide for instructions. If you are

Printing Speed Versus Color
The BJC-1000 Series Printer Driver for Windows can interpret and
translate the full spectrum of colors, up to 16.7 million colors. When
printing in color, there is a significant increase in the amount of
information that the driver has to interpret and translate. When printing
with black ink only, the driver has only one color to interpret.
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.

Ways to Improve Print Speed in Windows
To improve printing speed, you can try the following:
❍ Turn off the Print Manager in the Windows Control Panel
(Windows 3.1 only)
This avoids the extra step of sending the print file to the Print
Manager and may increase your printing speed by as much as 25%,
depending on the computer you are using.
❍ Add a permanent swap file in Windows 3.1
Under the 386 Enhanced icon in the Windows Control Panel, add or
create a permanent swap file that is from 4 MB to 9 MB. The
computer will be able to prepare the print file faster. See your
Windows documentation for instructions.
❍ Avoid diffusion halftones
In the Quality tab, choose Diffusion for Halftoning only when
printing final output or photographic images. Choosing a
Halftoning setting of Fine/Fast allows documents to print as much
as 20% faster because the computer does not need to compute to
“best possible position” for each dot. To select a Halftoning setting,
click the Main tab in the printer driver. Then double-click the
Advanced button and click the Quality tab.
❍ Avoid color adjustment
Disable the Color Adjustment option. This feature takes longer to
process in the computer because it requires special information. To
disable Color Adjustment, click the Main tab in the printer driver.
Then double-click the Advanced button and click the Color tab.

❍ Using Canon’s Specialty Papers
Selecting Paper Types
One of the most important things you can do to assure the best possible
performance of your Bubble Jet printer is to select the correct paper.
Your printer 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.
Plain Paper
The printer 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.
Glossy Photo Paper
Canon Glossy Photo Paper is a high gloss, thicker paper that produces
the look and feel of a photograph. Use this paper with the BC-05 Color
or BC-06 Photo BJ Cartridge to produce photo-realistic prints from
your printer. (In your printer driver, select Glossy Photo Paper when
you have this paper loaded.)
Banner Paper
Canon’s Banner 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.

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 everyday use, as well as 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
when you load this paper.)
High Resolution Paper
The Canon High Resolution Paper is designed to produce photo-realistic
quality output with sharp and vivid graphics. For best results, use the
optional BC-06 Photo BJ Cartridge to produce images comparable to
your favorite photographs.
T-Shirt Transfers
Greeting Cards
Get the most out of your Canon Creative or other card making software
with Canon Greeting Cards. These cards give your unique, personalized
cards the look and feel of professional cards. You can create cards,
invitations, announcements, and more.
Glossy Photo Cards
Use Canon’s Glossy Photo Card media when creating greeting cards and
other fun items that you want to fill the entire card. These cards are the
same stock as Canon’s Glossy Photo Paper and have perforations around
the printable area. You can print beyond the perforation and then tear
off the margins; this allows you to fill the entire card with an image or
color.
Bubble Jet Paper (water resistant)
The Canon Bubble Jet Paper 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.
(In your printer driver, select Plain Paper when you load this paper.)

Use Canon’s popular T-Shirt Transfers 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 select T-Shirt Transfer
for your Media Type in the BJC-1000 Series Printer Driver) so when you
iron it onto the T-shirt the image is viewed correctly.
Fabric Sheets
Use Fabric Sheets for Canon Bubble Jet printers 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.
Transparencies
Canon Transparencies are recommended. These transparencies produce
excellent contrast, sharpness, and color.
Back Print Film
Canon Back Print Film has been specially developed for Canon Color
Bubble Jet printers. The film is designed to deliver brilliant, highintensity 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
or glossy side using a backlighting device. Be sure to select Back Print
Film as your Media Type in the printer driver.
High Gloss Film
The Canon High Gloss Film 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.

Chapter 3
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 or banner paper only. You cannot use multipart paper.
❍ Whenever possible, hold the paper by the edges and avoid touching
the print side. Any scratching or soiling of the print side will
adversely affect the print quality.
❍ When storing paper, put the paper back in its original package and
avoid locations that are exposed to direct sunlight or that are subject
to high temperatures or humidity. To avoid bending or wrinkling
the paper, store the package on a flat surface.
❍ 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. Adjust the line spacing in your application.
❍ 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 thicker paper.
❍ 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.
Chapter 3
Paper Handling

❍ After printing, do not touch the print side until the ink is dry. If
water gets on the printed media, do not touch the print side until
the media is dry.

You can stack approximately 20 sheets of transparency film or 10 glossy
photo cards 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 open the front cover while printing. This will cause
the printer to pause and may cause paper jams, smudges, or
malfunctions.
❍ 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.
❍ Depending on the density of your printed pages, or if your printed
page contains lots of graphics, the ink may need time to dry. Within
two to three seconds, the ink becomes smudge resistant.
❍ If paper curls after printing, remove it immediately; otherwise, paper
jams may occur.
❍ Make sure there are no gaps between the stack of paper and the
paper guide nor the right edge of the sheet feeder.

❍ When automatically feeding transparencies or back print film,
remove each sheet after it is delivered. Do not allow film sheets to
stack up.
❍ 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 fading, do not expose the printed film to prolonged
sunlight.
❍ Store unused papers and films flat. Do not remove papers from their
protective packaging until you are ready to use them.
❍ 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%.
Printing and Uncurling Back Print Film
Be sure to print on the back (matte nonglossy) side of the film. Your
data is printed in mirror image so it can be viewed from the front or
glossy side using a back lighting device.
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.

Printer Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to avoid damage to your printer and harm to
you or others:
❍ Set the printer on a stable surface. Do not use an angled printer
stand. Avoid setting the printer in direct sunlight.
❍ Keep the front cover closed when printing.
❍ Do not set anything on top of the printer.
❍ Do not unplug the printer unnecessarily. If you will not be using the
printer for an extended period, unplug the power cord from the
power outlet.
❍ When you unplug the power cord, grasp the plug itself. Do not pull
on the cord.
❍ Do not unplug the printer when it is printing. This may prevent the
print head unit from returning to the home position on the right and
being capped, which may cause the print head to dry out. This is
critical. If left uncapped, the print head unit may clog and may need
to be replaced.
❍ Do not move the mechanism that holds the BJ cartridge. Attempting
to move the BJ cartridge holder may damage delicate mechanical
parts. (When you open the front cover, the cartridge holder
automatically moves to the center of the printer.)

need to change cartridges 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 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.
❍ Your output has no ink on it.
N
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.
For optimum printing results, Canon recommends that you use only
Canon BJ cartridges and Canon BJ tanks.
The most important thing you can do to extend the life of your printer
and to ensure optimum print quality is take care of the BJ cartridges.

Maintaining the BJ Cartridges
❍ Do not vigorously shake the cartridge while handling it.
❍ If you are using both the BC-05 Color BJ Cartridge and any other
BJ cartridge, make sure you store the cartridge not being used in the
Ink Cartridge Storage Box.
❍ Keep BJ cartridges in their sealed containers until you are ready to
use them.
❍ 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.

Transporting the Printer
N
While your printer is small and compact, it is not a portable printer and
you need to take care when transporting it. The printer’s components,
such as the sheet feeder, may become damaged if subjected to severe
vibration during transportation. Also, your print head may dry out
during travel (and become unusable) if it is not capped and taped
correctly.
If you plan to move the printer from one location to another, or if you
want to store it, follow these steps.
Unplug the
printer.
❍ Make sure the print head is in the home position.
❍ Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.
❍ Detach the interface cable.

Paper Does Not Feed From Sheet Feeder
Cause
Solution
Paper is too thick
Use recommended paper
Paper within the range of 17 to 24 lb (64 to 105 g/m2)
can be loaded in the sheet feeder. Thicker paper cannot
be used.
Sheet feeder

Paper will not feed correctly if you exceed the specified
number of sheets. (See page 3-7.)
Paper support not
attached
Attach the paper support
Always attach the paper support. If the paper support is
not attached, the media will not slide fully into the paper
feed slot and will not feed into the printer correctly.
Paper wrinkled or

The color reproduction methods used by monitors differ from those used by printers.
In addition, the printed color tones may not perfectly match those on the monitor
because the colors vary depending on the circumstances in which the monitor is
viewed and the monitor’s color calibration settings. For example, objects that appear
blue on the screen are printed purple, and objects that appear pale green on the screen
are printed dark green. However, if the differences are extreme, check the items below.

Appendix B
Glossary G
Automatic feed
Refers to one way in which paper can be fed into the printer when the
sheet feeder is used.
BJ cartridge
The printing mechanism that contains the print head unit and ink.
Bubble Jet printer
An ink-jet type printer that heats the ink to a boiling point in a nozzle to
form a bubble. When the bubble expands, there is no room left in the
nozzle for the ink and the ink is projected onto paper.
CMYK
Composite black
The black color formed by mixing cyan, magenta, and yellow ink so that
they appear almost black on a printout.
cpi
Characters per inch. A unit of measurement relevant to a fixed-space
font. Because all characters have the same width, you can calculate the
number of characters printed per inch.
cpl
Characters per line. A unit of measurement that indicates the number of
characters printed per line.
cps
Characters per second. A unit of measurement that indicates the
printer’s speed.
dB(A)
Stands for decibel level (a decibel being a unit of measurement for the
intensity of the sound coming from the printer), adjusted for
background noise.
Glossary
G-1
Glossary
Acronym for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black; the four colors used in
the standard color model of the printing industry. Refers to a method of
specifying color using CMYK color values. (K is used for black because
B is used to represent blue in RGB.)
dpi
Dots per inch. A unit of measurement for indicating a printer’s
resolution. Your printer can produce a resolution up to 720 × 360 dpi.
Font
A complete set of characters of the same size and style; a particular
implementation of a typeface. For example, 12-point, Courier bold.
Form feed
A printer function that automatically ejects the current page and
advances the printer to the top of the next page.
Grayscale
Representing color in black and white as a result of different intensities
of color. Different colors and intensities of colors appear as different
shades of gray.
Halftone
Using this method, the printer 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.
Hue
A color in the color spectrum. Examples are red, green, and violet.
Ink Cartridge Storage Box
A box for storing a BJ cartridge. A BJ cartridge removed from the printer
must be stored inside this storage box to prevent the print head of the
cartridge from drying and clogging.
Intensity
The amount of color. More intense or more saturated colors are more
pure. Less intense or less saturated colors are less vivid.
Interface
The connection between two devices that makes it possible for them to
communicate with each other. This printer features a parallel interface,
which makes it compatible with IBM and similar personal computers.
Landscape orientation
Refers to printing across the length of the page (as opposed to portrait
orientation printing across the width of the page). The term landscape is
derived from pictures of the landscape, which are usually horizontal in
format.
lpi
Lines per inch. The measurement used in describing the number of lines
that will print within one vertical inch. Most printing is done in 6 or 8 lpi.
G-2
Glossary
Manual feed
A method of feeding paper to the printer one sheet at a time.
Noise level
See dB(A).
Page orientation
Refers to the direction of print on the page. Printing across the width of
a page is called portrait orientation. Printing across the length of a page
is called landscape orientation.
Paper thickness lever
The green lever located inside the printer, which you adjust as necessary
to accommodate different BJ Cartridges, paper thicknesses, and graphics
densities.
Parallel interface
An interface that transmits multiple bits simultaneously (usually in onebyte segments). Your printer has a built-in, Centronics-type parallel
interface with bidirectional capability. See also Interface.
Pitch
Platen
Printer component that holds the paper in position during ink transfer.
Point size
Character height is defined in points; one point is 1/72 inch. For
instance, this text is printed using a 10-point font.
Portrait orientation
Refers to printing across the width of the page (letter style). This is the
opposite of landscape orientation, which is printing across the length of
the page.
Print head
The printing mechanism that contains print nozzles and ejects the ink
for printing.
Print head capping
An automatic protection function that prevents the print head unit and
ink cartridges from drying out or becoming clogged with dust.
Glossary
G-3
Glossary
Refers to the number of characters per inch that can be composed using
a fixed space font.
Printable area
The area of a sheet of paper on which a printer can reproduce text or
graphics (the printing area is smaller than the paper). On this printer,
the printing area varies depending on the type of paper being used.
Printer driver
Software that sends printing instructions to a printer. The printer driver
keeps track of the attributes of a printer and the codes the program
must send to access those attributes.
RAM
Random Access Memory. Printer memory that is used for temporary
storage of information you want to print and downloaded fonts.
Resolution
The density of dots for any given output device. Expressed in terms of
dots per inch (dpi). Low resolution causes font characters and graphics
to have a jagged appearance. Higher resolution means smoother curves
and angles as well as a better match to traditional typeface designs.
Resolution values are represented by horizontal data and vertical data,
for example, 360 × 360 dpi. This printer can produce output with
resolutions up to 720 × 360 dpi precision.
RGB
An acronym for Red, Green, and Blue; the three primary colors used in
the additive process to form a wide spectrum of colors.
Smoothing mode
A printer mode that refines your printout by polishing away jagged
edges and ragged stair-stepping curves of characters and graphics.
Subtractive colors
The three primary colors (cyan, yellow, and magenta); when combined
through a subtractive process give a spectrum of colors.
True black
Contrary to composite black, true black color on a printout is obtained
with the use of black ink.
TrueType font
The scalable font technology built into Microsoft Windows 3.1. It offers
you the same font images both on computer displays and printer
outputs.
