Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
I set up the rear paper tray, but I cannot figure out how to get the printer to feed the paper from the rear tray - and not the cassette tray.

I'm not sure if you've already checked this, but this was my issue. I, too, would try to print something and it would make a great deal of clunking noise but would then say that there was no paper and told me to load some. I went to the Canon site and before I actually went through the process of cleaning the print roller, I checked the feed switch button on the display panel. It's right below the ON/OFF button and, what do you know, it was set to feed from a paper cassette instead of the back loading tray. I pushed the button and it's now printing fine. I'm sure we must have accidentally hit the button when we were trying to turn the printer on or off quickly. Hope this does the trick! It's always nice when it's something easily fixed!

It turns out that if you read the documentation VERY carefully it says that "if the application program specifies 8.5x11 plain paper and that is what is loaded in the front cassette you cannot print from the rear tray". It turns out that this is true even if you go to the printer driver and specify "rear tray" manually. The driver disregards the setting. You can force printing plain paper from the rear tray by going to the Canon "My Printer" icon and forcing ALL printing from the rear tray. If you do this, remember to change it back. You can also print plain paper from the rear tray if you specify the "allocation" option and the paper from the front cassette runs out. You can always print from the rear tray if the application that created the print job specifies something other than 8.5x11 without resorting to the forced override, e.g. printing a .jpg or .gif or something from an application like Paintshop or Printshop, etc.

I just spend over an hour on the phone with Canon for the same problem... the resolution is simple. From the Control Panel, select Printers & Faxes. Right-click the mp620 printer, and select Properties. Select Printing Preferences from the bottom of the General tab, then click the Page Setup tab. Choose Print Options at the bottom. Place a check mark in the box next to "Disable the paper source setting of the application software." Click OK 3 times and the problem should be solved.

the feed switch is actually connected very firm to the printer paper inserting tray body.so you can adjust it for setting various paper sizes.but if its reverting back that means the feed switch has lost its firmness and good loose.its a plastic material so it can get bit cracked or worn out.for temporary option you can set the paper size by adjusting the feed switch and stick the feed switch with a sallow tape.for permanent option get it replaced.the spare feed switch will be easily available at local printer repair shop.--------
before replacing or sticking up sallow tape check out if its just got loose or come out.in this case just reset it to its position.
This will help. Thanks please keep
updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
