Main Unit Maintenance

This section describes the maintenance and management of the machine, such as regular cleaning and the replacement of consumables. It also describes the maintenance service provided by Canon. For information on precautions to take during maintenance, see the Important Safety Instructions.
Maintenance and Inspections
The minimum holding period for performance parts for repairs and toner cartridges is seven (7) years after production of the machine model is discontinued.
If a problem occurs during operation, see "Troubleshooting" in the User's Guide. If the problem still cannot be resolved or you think the machine needs to be checked, contact your dealer or service representative.
If you find the machine's operation to be noisy in some operating modes or due to your surroundings, we recommend setting up the machine in a separate location from your office.
Water droplets (condensation) may form inside the machine if the room where the machine is installed is heated rapidly, or if the machine is moved from a cool, dry location to a warm, humid location. Using the machine under these conditions may result in problems such as paper jams, poor print quality, or faults. Let the machine adjust to the ambient temperature and humidity for at least two hours before use.
Machines with storage devices such as hard disks may not operate properly when used at high altitudes (3,000 meters above sea level or higher).
