Important safety instructions
Read these safety instructions thoroughly before using your fax.
K
K Handling and maintenance
• Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the fax.
• Do not subject the fax to strong physical shock or vibration.
• Always unplug the fax before moving or cleaning it.
• To avoid paper jams, never unplug the power cord, open the printer cover, or remove paper from the multi-
purpose tray while printing.
• When transporting the fax, be sure to remove the BJ cartridge.
• Always lift the fax as shown below. Never lift it by any of its attachments.
• Do not push objects of any kind into the slots or openings on the cabinet as they may touch dangerous
voltage points or short out parts. This could result in fire or electric shock.
• Do not allow small objects (such as pins, paper clips, or staples) to fall into the fax. If something does fall
into the fax, unplug it immediately and contact your local authorised Canon dealer or the Canon Help
Desk.
• To avoid spillage in or around the fax, do not eat or drink near it. If you spill liquid or if any substance
falls into the fax, unplug the fax immediately and contact your local authorised Canon dealer or the Canon
Help Desk.
• Keep the fax clean. Dust accumulation can prevent the fax from operating properly.
• Unplug the fax from the wall outlet and refer service to qualified personnel under the following
conditions:
– When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
– If liquid has spilled into the fax.
– If the fax has been exposed to rain or water.
– If the fax does not operate normally when you have followed the instructions in this guide. Adjust only
those controls that are covered by the instructions in this guide. Improper adjustment of other controls
may result in damage and may require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the product to
normal operation.
– If the fax has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
– If the fax exhibits a distinct change in performance, indicating a need for servicing.
Except as specifically described in this guide, do not attempt to service the fax yourself. Never
attempt to disassemble the fax: opening and removing its interior covers will expose you to
dangerous voltages and other risks. For all service, contact your local authorised Canon dealer or
the Canon Help Desk.

K
K Location
• Place the fax on a flat, stable, vibration-free surface that is strong enough to support its weight (approx.
5.1 kg).
• Place the fax in a cool, dry, clean, well ventilated place.
– Make sure the area is free from dust.
– Make sure the location is not affected by extreme temperature changes, and always stays between 10°
and 32.5°C.
– Make sure the area’s relative humidity is always between 20% and 85%.
• Keep the fax away from direct sunlight as this can damage it. If you have to place it near a window, install
heavy curtains or blinds.
• Do not use the fax near water. Make sure that no wet or humid objects come into contact with the fax.
• Do not use or store the fax outdoors.
• Do not install the fax near devices that contain magnets or generate magnetic fields, such as speakers.
• If possible, place the fax near an existing telephone outlet to avoid the expense of installing a new one.
• Place the fax near a standard 200-240 V AC power outlet.
• To ensure reliable operation of the fax and to protect it from overheating (which can cause it to operate
abnormally and create a fire risk), do not block the exhaust vent and never block or cover any openings
on the fax by placing it on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place the fax in a cupboard or
built-in installation, or near a radiator or other heat source unless proper ventilation is provided. Install the
fax approximately 10 cm away from walls and other equipment. For the dimensions of the fax, see p. S-1.
• Do not place the fax on the edge of a desk so as to prevent received documents from falling onto the floor.
• Do not stack boxes or furniture around the power outlet. Keep the area free so you can reach the outlet
quickly. If you notice anything unusual (smoke, strange odours, noises) around the fax, unplug it
immediately. Contact your local authorised Canon dealer or the Canon Help Desk.
• Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord, and do not place the fax where the cord will be walked
on. Make sure the cord is not knotted or kinked.
K
K Power supply
• During electrical storms, disconnect the power cord from the power outlet. (Please note that any
documents stored in the fax’s memory will be deleted when you unplug the fax.)
• Whenever you unplug the fax, wait at least five seconds before you plug it in again.
• If dust accumulates around the plug of the power cord when it is connected to a power outlet, unplug the
fax and wipe the plug with a clean, dry cloth.
This product emits low level magnetic flux. If you use a cardiac pacemaker and feel abnormalities,
please move away from this product and consult your doctor.

Installing the BJ cartridge
The first time you set up your fax, you have to install the BJ cartridge before you can begin receiving and
copying documents.
For information on replacing the BJ cartridge, see p. 9-8.
Guidelines _________________________________
Follow these guidelines to ensure optimum performance of your BJ cartridge.
• Use only a Canon BX-20 Black BJ* cartridge in your fax.
• Store BJ cartridges at room temperature.
• Keep BJ cartridges in their packaging until you are ready to use them. This is to prevent the BJ cartridge
from drying out.
• Replace BJ cartridges after one year of use.
• Never remove the BJ cartridge unless you are going to replace it. When left exposed, the cartridge print
head dries out, making it unusable.
• To change a BJ cartridge, be sure to press [Cartridge] to move the cartridge holder to the centre.
• Make sure the cartridge holder is in its home position (on the right side of the fax) when you are not using
the fax. If it is not in its home position, press [Cartridge]. Leaving the cartridge holder out of its home
position will cause the BJ cartridge to remain uncapped and dry out.
The ink in the BJ cartridge is difficult to clean up if spilled. Follow the precautions below when handling
the BJ cartridge.
• Carefully remove packaging from BJ cartridges.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or refill BJ cartridges.
• Do not shake or drop BJ cartridges or tip the print head downwards.
• Store BJ cartridges out of the reach of children.
If a child inadvertently ingests ink, consult a
physician immediately.
• Do not touch the precision components on the
BJ cartridge.
Do not touch this area
* FAX-B180C will also accept Canon BC-21e Colour BJ cartridge. However, only black and white output
is possible even with this cartridge. Colour output is only possible when the machine is used as a printer.

Loading paper
Selecting the right kind of paper _______________
The quality of the paper you use affects the print quality of the fax. Using paper that meets the following
guidelines will ensure the best possible printing results.
Paper guidelines ____________________________
• Be sure to load paper of the correct size, weight, and quantity recommended for your fax. (see p. 4-2)
• Store all paper wrapped and on a flat surface until ready to use. Keep opened packs in their original
packaging, in a cool, dry location.
• Store paper at 18°-24°C, 40%-60% relative humidity.
• To avoid paper jams and poor print quality, do not print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper.
• Use cut-sheet paper only, not paper that comes on a roll.
• Use only paper that has a thickness of between 0.08 and 0.13 mm. Thick paper may damage the BJ
cartridge print head.
• Do not load paper beyond the paper limit mark (P) or beyond the tab on the multi-purpose tray. Doing so
may cause problems. Also, make sure there are no gaps on either side of the paper stack.
• Let the paper run out before refilling the multi-purpose tray. Avoid mixing new stock with paper already
loaded.
• Do not leave paper stacked in the multi-purpose tray for long periods of time since it may bend or curl and
cause problems.
• Certain environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures or humidity, can cause some paper to
misfeed in the multi-purpose tray. If you have trouble, feed one sheet at a time.
• Depending on the density of the printed pages, the ink may need time to dry. Within two or three seconds,
the ink becomes smudge resistant. After drying for several minutes, the ink becomes water-resistant.
• If your printed page contains a large amount of graphics, the ink on the page may be damp due to the print
density. Leave the page for 30 to 60 seconds to allow the ink to dry. Then remove the page carefully
without touching any surfaces.
• If paper curls after printing, remove it immediately; otherwise paper jams may occur.
• The platen (a roller inside the fax) may become inked if you print data beyond the width of the page. If
this happens, clean inside the fax. (see p. 9-4)

Dialling through a switchboard
(PBX)
A PBX (private branch exchange) is an on-site telephone switchboard.
• If your fax is connected through a switchboard, dial an outside line access number first. Then dial the rest
of the number.
• If you want to dial with automatic dialling, you may have to insert a pause between the outside line access
number and the telephone number when you register the number for one-touch or coded speed dialling.
To enter a pause, press [Redial/Pause].
• When you have to make calls to an outside line or an extension, you may have to press the [R] button.
Before you can use the [R] button, you need to register the access type and outside line access number
under it. (see below)
Registering the access type and the outside line
access number _____________________________
When the fax is connected to a PBX or other telephone switching system, you can register the access type
and outside line access number under the [R] button. Once you have registered them, you simply need to
press [R] before dialling a fax or telephone number.
Follow the procedure below to register the access type and outside line access number under the [R] button.

Special dialling
This section explains how to dial long-distance numbers, confirm a dial tone, and switch temporarily to tone
dialling.
K
K Long-distance dialling
When you register a long-distance number, you may have to insert a pause within or after the number. For
long-distance dialling, the location and length of the pause may differ depending on the telephone system.
To enter a pause, press [Redial/Pause]. The length of this pause can be adjusted. See MID PAUSE SET,
p. 8-4. A pause at the end of a number is fixed at 10 seconds.
K
K Confirming a dial tone
The availability of this feature depends on the current country selection. You can print the USER DATA
LIST to check the current setting. (see p. 8-7)
When you register a number, you may have to confirm the dial tone in the middle of a fax/telephone number
before entering the rest of the number. This is called dial tone detection. When dial tone detection is
required, press [D.T.]; a small dot (.) appears on the LCD*.
K
K Switching temporarily to tone dialling
Many information services for banks, airline reservations, hotel reservations, etc., require tone dialling for
their services. If your fax is connected to a rotary pulse line, when tone dialling is required, press [Tone/+].
Numbers dialled after pressing [Tone/+] will be dialled using tone dialling. Tone dialling is cancelled when
you disconnect the call.
* This function is only available with some country settings.

Loading documents
Follow the procedure below to load documents into the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).
1 Adjust the document guide to the width of
the document. 2 Gently insert the top of the document face
down into the ADF until you hear a beep.
Tap multipage documents on a flat surface to even the
edges before inserting them into the ADF.
• For a multipage document, the pages are fed one by one from the bottom of the stack.
• Wait until all pages of your document have been scanned before starting a new job.
• Make sure you follow the procedure above to load documents into the ADF. If the document is not
loaded into the ADF correctly, it may not feed into the fax properly; resulting in a jam, or in pages not
being sent or copied.
• If your document has more than 20 A4- or letter-size pages, or 10 legal-size pages, divide the document
into 2 sections and send or copy each section separately.
