How to use a PhotocopierHow to use a Photocopier

The following is a step by step guide to using your Canon Photocopier to make copies in less than two minutes:

1.Turn on the Photocopier

First, check for plugs, and make sure that the copier’s cord is plugged into a nearby outlet. Next, look for the power button, usually on top, but sometimes on the side. If you find that the unit is already on but is not responding, then it may be in “sleep” mode, in which case you simply press the “copy” button for a response.

Before moving to the next step, make sure that the copier has paper in it. The paper tray will be located either on the front or the side of the device and always make sure to keep it topped up.


2. Put Your Document on the Copier

Next, lift the photocopier’s cover and place your document on the glass surface. You will want the front of the document facing downward on the glass. You will also want to place the document the way the guide marks tell you. Once you have properly placed your document, you can close the copier cover.


3. Select the Number of Copies

Now select the number of copies that you want the copier to make. The copier will have a digital number display and a set of plus and minus keys so that you can change the quantity.


4. Select the Colour Preference

Next, you choose whether you would like colour copies or black and white copies. Now press the button to make your changes.


5. Select Paper Size

Select the correct paper size. 8.5 x 11 inches is the standard paper size. If you need to use a special paper size, then you will have to feed the paper into the appropriate tray.


6. Press the Copy Button

Finally, you will press the “copy” button to print your copies. Some units have the copy button labelled as a start button. Once you press the copy button, your copies will start printing.
