  1. Press <Status Monitor>.

  2. Press <la.gif> or <ra.gif> to select [PRINT], then press <Set>.

    If there is no job, [NO PRINT JOB EXIST] is displayed.

  3. If you decide to delete the current print job, press <la.gif> for [YES].
    • To cancel deleting the job, press <ra.gif> for [NO].
    • Once the job is deleted, the job cannot be restored.
    • If the alarm light is flashing, open and close the front panel to reset the alarm.

I couldn't find your exact model, but I did find one close. Under the Tech Support section, there is a Step-by-Step Troubleshooting guide. Just look for the display errors that you list above for possible solutions.

Re: Will not print

Okay ya'll I've dealt with this problem twice. The first time it was super frustrating but eventually I figured it out.


First things first turn off your printer, unplug the USB connecting it to your computer.


Restart your computer (with printer not USB not connected to it)


Now comes the fun part. Open the middle area of your enormous printer and take out that stupid printer cartridge. Now put it back in.


Each time this error has happened to me these actions have solved the problem.


Oh yeah and for all of the new owners of this printer, this error can easily happen to those who forget to take out that strip that is on the side of the brand new printer cartridge.

My Xerox Phaser 6128MFP printer flashes a red light with a "Load paper in Tray" message, when the specific paper size and type are already same in the tray.

If the paper size is correct in the printer and the printer and it's possible to print off a test print in both the printer control screen or directly from the print driver utilities if that works then the only thing I can suggest is the item you want to print is defaulted to a different size. i.e. Check that the word processor your using is set to the size you have in the printer. Imperial size pages will look very similar on screen as does the A4. Printers don't automatically fix paper print sizes you just have to check and recheck for differences. Removing the tray only reafirms to the printer that the size might be incorrect and your going to fit the correct size.
As for the red light all printers behave differently in certain error conditions. Have you also tried to print out something you printed at a time the printer was working correctly. In other words try printing out a different file. Maybe, trying to print off a test print of one line of the alphabet, and then go from there.
Good luck,

Fax can do copies and send but not able to receive incoming faxes. Did several tests. Modem picks up but doesn't transmit data. LCD screen does not indicate any trouble or alarm.

It's possible that somehow the incoming faxes are going directly to memory and not printing. If there was a Tx issue, you'd get an error message on the LCD screen or a printed out message. Not knowing what kind of machine you have, I can't give you instructions to print from memory but if you check your manual, you should see instructions to both print from memory and set the fax to print automatically.

When printing from Word Perfect, the message MF Feed Letter comes up and I have to feed pages manually.

This means you send a printjob that needs "Letter" size and tray 2 is set to another size than "Letter". Make sure you set the papersize on the printer the same as the papersize of the printjob. Gerrit Jan

Alarm light is on it says( check paper size) this is a canon mf57700

I had this problem also. I was unable to clear the paper size error. Finally I loaded the papersize that the printer was wanting (A4 in my case) and let it print. Once the print job finished it was back to working normal.
