product.

==================================================================

Contents:

1. Caution for installation
2. Scaling
3. Overlay
4. Halftone
5. Toner Saver
6. Sharing a parallel port with another device
7. ECP settings: Windows 9x
8. Printing On-Line Help: Windows NT4.0/2000

10. Restriction on Windows NT4.0/2000 network printer
11. Restarting Windows with a remaining print job: Windows NT4.0/2000
==================================================================

1. Caution for installation

If you have installed a printer driver of R1.02 (Ver.1.00.0.019) 
or earlier on OS on which a Plug and Play device is installed, 
you may fail to execute plug and play installation. 
In this case, you can install the software by taking the following
steps.

<Installation Procedure>
1)Uninstall the printer driver(s) of R1.02 (Ver.1.00.0.019) or earlier.
2)While you are starting OS, cancel the Plug and Play dialog box, which 
  prompts you to install LBP-800.
3)Install the software by using the [Add Printer] wizard in the 
  [Printers] folder.
  During this installation, select the latest INF file in the Install
  From Disk dialog box, which can be open by clicking [Have Disk] in
  the Add Printer wizard dialog box.
4)To remove unnecessary files, execute "CAPSWEEP.EXE" in the 
  installation media.

 * "CAPSWEEP.EXE" is located in the following path.
  - From the driver software CD:(i.e. D:drive is CD-ROM drive)
      D:/English/CAPSWEEP.EXE
  - From the location of the downloaded Web version
      ../disk1/CAPSWEEP.EXE 

==================================================================

2. Scaling

Some applications may not print correctly when scaling is set at 
other than 100% by LBP-800 Printer Setup or Properties. In this 
case, please set its scaling at 100%. If the application has own 
its scaling function, please set scaling from the application.

==================================================================

3. Overlay

Depending on its application, the printout using overlay form may 
be different from what you expect to be printed. For example, the 
contents of overlay form beyond the printing area may not be 
printed unless changing its printing area (or margin) setting. 
Please try to print it setting its margin as wide as to fit all 
contents of overlay form in the printable area.

==================================================================

4. Halftone

The Halftone settings are valid when printing colored bitmap, 
area filling, and colored text. However the Smooth setting is 
only valid when printing colored bitmap.

==================================================================

5. Toner Saver

Using Toner Saver mode, the objects filled with some graphic 
patterns may not be printed as shown on the display.

==================================================================

6. Sharing a parallel port with another device

LBP-800 is capable of sharing a parallel port with another device 
such as a scanner which conforms to the contention management 
described in DDK (Device Driver Development Kit). When both 
devices are, however, used simultaneously, this may cause a 
problem with an operation.

==================================================================

7. ECP settings: Windows 9x

Depending on the PC in use, the printout may not come out 
properly if "ECP with DMA" is used. In such a case, please select 
"ECP without DMA" or "Standard" in the Port Setting dialog box 
using the Printer Status Window. If the problem is not resolved 
by this, you may be able to solve this by changing its BIOS setup 
(i.e. parallel port mode or parallel port address).

==================================================================

8. Printing On-Line Help: Windows NT4.0/2000

If you want to print the contents of the On-Line Help, start up 
the [Canon LBP-800 Help] from the Canon CAPT Tools group.

==================================================================

9. Uninstalling network printer that other user connected: Windows NT4.0/2000

When you execute the [Canon LBP-800 Uninstallation] on the PC 
that other user have already connected to the Canon LBP-800 
network printer servers, information of the Canon LBP-800 network 
printer that other user connected will not be removed. In this 
case, other user should remove his Canon LBP-800 printer icon 
before you execute uninstallation.

==================================================================

10. Restriction on Windows NT4.0/2000 network printer

When a network printer is installed on Windows NT4.0/2000, even though 
you change its connection destination to a local port, the 
printer cannot be used as a local printer. If you need to 
establish a local printer, you must install a printer driver, 
selecting a local port.

==================================================================

11. Restarting Windows with a remaining print job: Windows NT4.0/2000

If you need to restart Windows NT4.0/2000 with a remaining LBP-800 print 
job, first double-click the LBP-800 in the Printers folder and 
pause the print job. 
Then restart Windows NT4.0/2000.
