Question about Canon imageCLASS D880 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Erratic operation thru top copy/fax function

When you try to copy from the top copy/fax tray the machine wants to pull the paper tighter from one side than the other and it stops when pulling the first sheet or it could be the second or third sheet that it stops/jams ?? - not really sure what to call it. The paper does not get clogged in the machine only stops pulling the paper thru as if the tension has caused it to do this. It may have faxed or copied three or whatever sheets before it stops, gives out the warning sound and you have to fix it. You have to pull the last sheet out of the slot and then lift the lid and restart the action. It may do this 8 to 10 times in a row before it just works. ? ... No rhyme or reason when it is going to do this. I have tried cleaning the rollers and whatever is included in pulling the paper thru process and it has not helped. I have found that sometimes I can - and don't know why this works sometimes - turn my papers around and send the opposite end thru and it will work smooth as ever .... but that is not consistent either. I see no way to adjust the roller / belt - whatever, without taking it apart -- and really don't want to get into that without some assistance. The machine works so well otherwise -- I hate to send it out to pasture...! But it makes it a real problem when you want to fax something and it takes 10 min's to get it to go thru the machine.... and that's the only way the fax will work --- thru the top. PLease help, I need it to work correctly.

I don't really want to get into this, but you sound desparate. i don't work on your model very often, so bear with me. When a sheet jams, don't just pull it out. Open the document feeder as far as you can and note where it stopped (the side tha DID NOT feed). Look for a possible obstruction or even spot of something that looks dirty or sticky. If so, remove or clean it. Look at the leading edge of the jammed sheet, see if there are any indentations that could possibly line up with a sensor flag, roller edge, etc. Last suggestion. Press down of the side of the document feeder that DID NOT feed through. If this helps, then there is a problem with the latch that holds the document feeder closed. Without seeing the unit it is difficult to diagnose correctly. Let me know one way or the other. Any observations will be helpful. Ed One more thing! Make sure the leading edges of the pages you are sending are perfectly straight and smooth. Make sure that they HAVE NOT been stapled at one time (the indentation can cause a problem)

Change toner


Step 1 Check the top of your Canon fax/copy machine to see if your specific model has a protruding extension piece from the plastic delivery tray. Push the extension piece down if one is present on your model.
Step 2
Grip the bottom edge of the paper delivery tray at the front of the machine. Lift the tray upward to reveal the rectangular, plastic toner cartridge inside the machine.

Step 3
Grab the handle at the top of the current toner cartridge and lift the cartridge upward. Pull the toner out of the machine and set it aside.
Step 4
Set your replacement toner cartridge over the empty space in the fax/copy machine. Ensure that the arrow near the bottom of the cartridge is facing down, and line up the protruding guide piece on the left side of the cartridge with the groove inside the machine. Push the toner downward until it snaps into position.
Step 5
Push the paper delivery tray back down, and lift up the extension piece if your model uses one.

To fax do you send paper through it or scan it to an e-mail


Assuming you have it hooked up to a phone line that is capable of dialing the number you want to fax to, you put your paper in the top tray, dial the number and hit send. The machine will pull through the paper and deposit it under that top tray. You will want to make a copy first so you know you are putting in the paper facing the right direction (it should be face up.) Put a single sheet face up in the top tray and hit copy. If what comes out of the bottom-most tray underneath is an exact copy of your original, then you're fine, if it's blank, then flip the orginal over and try again.

Double sided copying

here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
Duplex printing 1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
�� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
�� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
Slot.
�� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
�� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex printing 1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.


�� Manual Duplex
Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
orientation.
�� Booklet Printing
When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
middle.
�� Binding Offset
If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

For faxing from the MFC-290C is it face up or face down?


Try making a copy of something, if it comes out blank, try the other way. The copy and fax functions work the same.

Hope this helps

Check Rec Paper


First power off the machine. Facing the machine from the front, remove the rear tray extension that holds the paper and "feel your way" down into the right side of the of the back paper tray. You should feel a out-of-round feed roller. With a little effort you can rotate this around. Take a terry like cloth and dampen it with water and clean this roller. Before puttin any paper back into the tray, turn the machine back on so the paper feed assembly will return to the home position.
