I just read the data on your model and it says nothing about two sided printing. 
You can still print two sides of the paper with any printer. Save page 1 and page two sweperately. Either place one piece of paper into your printer or if it feeds for the front of the pile ,Just have it print side on. After that is done the the printed paper and place it back into the the front of the paper tray so that it will be the next one printed,then print side two . A slow poocess but sometimes worth it. (You may have to turn the paper around and or backwards for it to print on the correct side in the directing you desire, experiment).

I have a mx310 and where it feeds the printing paper do not print the printing paper goes to the side and it stops

Looks feeder is broken. Even having the repair kit probably you don't have the technical knowledge to dismount your printer and change the broken piece so you should take it to an authorized Cannon repair shop

My Canon MX310 printer is not printing. The paper feeder is not feeding the paper into the printer. It is feeding only on one side. We are unable to print or get faxes. Can you help me out?

And then try for it.

When I try to print it starts a sheet of paper then lets go of it before it prints then says paper jammed when it has failed to load a piece. I have a pixma mx310

Clean the pick-up mechanism and feed wheels with isopropil alcohol and a Q tip. These items are probably slick and not gripping the paper.

Hi Where do I load the paper in my Canon MX310?

The MX310 is a straight through printer. So you put the paper in the rear tray after opening it. Pull out the paper support and adjust the lever for the paper thickness to match your paper specifications. The lever goes to the left unless printing envelopes and T-shirt transfers. Also pull out the paper output tray and set the output tray extension.

Align the 4 corners of the paper stack (if loading more than one sheet) and bend to uncurl the paper (if needed) before inserting in the rear tray. For photo paper and other pages with a print side and a back, place the pages with the print side facing up. Align the paper against the right side of the rear tray and then pinch the paper guide and slide it to the left side of the paper stack. Make sure to adjust the paper size to match in the computer's printer properties (paper size) or in the copy settings on the all-in-one before either printing or copying.

Specific directions and pictures are in the Quick Start Guide that is available as a PDF here: .

I hope this helps.

I have Canon pixma MX310 and I just trying to set it up.I'm trying to print and there is message open paper out tray.What is that mean and how I can fix it

The printer will not print as long as the paper output tray is closed.
  1. Open the Paper Output Tray (2).
    Put your finger in the rounded indent beside the Paper Output Tray and open it gently.

  2. Open the Output Tray Extension (3).
    Open up and set the Output Tray Extension completely by pressing down the hollow on its front side.

  3. Adjust the position of the Paper Thickness Lever (4).
    Set it to the right when printing on envelopes or T-shirt transfers, and left when printing on any other type of paper.

The display reads paper jam, but if there is paper there it is so small I can't see it. How do I get into the printer to remove any paper remnants? The printer is a Canon Pixma MX310

Hello! Usually when this happens, something is stuck in the printer, or a piece of paper is jammed.
Try to remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of card stock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
Hope that helps!

Canon mx310 feeds paper w/out printing

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
