Canon mx310 feeds paper w/out printing

Hello! Just bought a Canon PIXMA MX310. I can copy, so I know the ink is fine. When I try to print, it just feeds paper through without printing anything.

-Mac OS X 10.4.11
-Cables are connected correctly.
-MX310 and MX310 FAX show up in the printer window. I have selected both and neither seem to work.
-What is the proper 'print using'? I selected canon and a huge list of options comes up...i selected the first one "Canon BJC-1000 - Gimp v5.0.0-beta2" because there isn't an option for just MX310.
-Downloaded drivers from Canon already with no luck.

Thanks for any help!!

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

When attempting to print, my Canon MX310 seems to run fine, but the paper is blank. No errors reported, but just blank paper


Have you tried running the clean heads and prime functions. If the printer has set for a while, things may have dried out. Or, perhaps the cartridges are out of ink?

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.

Canon MX310 keeps not printing and message comes up paper jam sometimes nothing happens sometimes startes to take paper then stops sometimes just feeds through without printing , there seems to be no real...


Have you ever tried printing sticky labels in the thing? You have to be careful with those because sometimes a piece will come off and stick in the corner of your printer. If you don't have long surgical tweezers to pull it out, you could be looking at an expensive repair. Also check your manual. There are two places the paper can jam in. You might have checked only one. I have a different Canon model but on mine I also have to make sure the correct light is on. Is the light for feeding from the back on, or the light from feeding on the front? If you have the same light, press it again to change the place where it will feed from.

Make sure your paper isn't curled or that you're using paper that's too thick also.

Can't answer more because I don't know what program you are using to try to print.
