Follow these instructions carefully. Not 100% guaranteed to work. Remember - you must have printer connected by parallel cable and use LPT1 when asked. If this works just remember you'll most likely only be able to print. I'll check to see how it turns out. Choose the printer the instructions say to choose. Except the very last dtep you can name it whatever you want. Take your time, do it right. Doesn't take long.

Use the following procedure to place the MultiPASS in Printer Mode. When finished, install an emulation driver.

  1. Press the <Menu> button on the printer's operator panel.

  2. Press the <SCAN> button.

  3. Press the <COPY> button.

  4. Press the <SET> button 2 times. The display will display [PRINTER MODE].

  • After the printer is set to PRINTER MODE and the parallel cable is connected at both ends and the computer is booted into Windows, Windows Plug and Play will detect and automatically install the Canon Inkjet S630 printer driver. If the S630 is not installed automatically, install the emulation driver manually.
  • After printing is completed, disconnect the cable from the printer and then disable PRINTER MODE.
Installing an emulation driver
The Canon Inkjet S630 emulation driver should install automatically once the F50 is set to Printer Mode, the cable is connected at both ends and the computer has booted into Windows. If not, the driver can be installed using the ‘Add a Printer’ function in the Printers window (See steps below).

  1. After setting the MultiPASS to Printer Mode and connecting the interface cable, power on the computer.

  2. If the 'Found New Hardware' window appears, cancel it.

  3. Click the 'Start' icon, DRIVER - startikon.gif , click 'Control Panel' and then click the appropriate link or icon depending on the view.

  • Using Normal Vista View :

  • Using Classic View :

  1. Click 'Add A Printer'.


  2. Select 'Add a Local Printer'.


  3. Select 'Use an existing port' and 'LPT1: (Printer Port)', then click 'Next'.


  4. Select 'Canon' as the Manufacturer and select Canon Inkjet S630.


  5. Type a name for the printer if desired, check the Set as the default printer box if you want the printer to be the default printer and then click 'Next'. The printer driver installs. If a Printer Sharing window appears, select 'Do not share' and click 'Next'.

    Above example shows Canon Bubble-Jet S400 in the Printer name field.

  6. When the installation finishes, click 'Finish' or choose 'Print a Test Page' to test the printer.

  7. After printing is completed, disconnect the cable from the printer and then disable PRINTER MODE. To print again, set the printer back to PRINTER MODE and then reconnect the cable.

  1. Press the <Menu> button.

  2. Press the <SCAN> button.

  3. Press the <COPY> button. The display will show [DOS PRINTING]

  4. Press the <SET> button. The bottom row on the display will show [ON].

  5. Press the left or right arrow to select OFF and then press the <SET> button.

    I messed up showing how the views would look as you do it. Just follow the instructions and you can do it without the views. If you can't, add a comment and I'll provide them. But you're smart, you can do it.- ( X's should be pictures but don't worry)
