    There is paper in the paper tray but everytime I press print, my Canon Pixma reads please load paper and it won't pick up the paper..It makes a sound like it's going to pick it up, but it won't catch the paper.



    Please help

    Have the same problem with the Auto Feeder at top of machine. Paper starts going, then crumples on one corner and jams. Have tried cleaning rollers, as manual suggests, didn't help. There's no paper or anything else I can see jamming it. I think the paper isn't getting past the sensors. The lower tray prints okay but I can't use the glass to copy.

SOURCE: Paper Out message

Make sure that you are loading it in the back and not the front, I didn't figure this out until I looked at the manual. If you're used to HPs then you want to load in the front, but actually if you look behind the scan door, there is a black panel that you can open, and that's where you feed the paper. That thing in the front is actually where the paper comes out of. Go figure.

SOURCE: canon pixma mp110 saying ''please load paper and press ok''

there is problem in the paper feeder gears of the printer.they r pulling the paper and then not able to forward the paper as they worn out or slightly cracked.so they needs replacement with deep servicing/cleaning from proper technician .it will be ok after that.

SOURCE: Mp780 - Paper attempts to feed and fails Message: Load paper

Your paper feed source is wrong .Go to the printers control panel and change the feed source.
If all you do is 8.5X11 you can go into the maintenance tab and choose it to automatically change paper trays by selectin auto continuous feed.Make sure paper is in both trays of the same type and size.You will hear the printer try and grab the paper three times then it will automatically switch to the next tray.

SOURCE: canon MX850 - paper feed

Look carefully because it is a cassette on the bottom of your canon mx850... so the solution is: or you fill that cassette or you switch your canon (it is a button for that) to take the paper from the top...

SOURCE: Cassette error

On the control panel for the printer, there's a Feed Switch button that's easily touched by accident. Ensure the Feed Switch is set to the paper source you're using (e.g. either the back or front). The graphic of the printer next to the Feed Switch button will light up to indicate the paper tray it's attempting to use.

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
