Pixma mx892 will not feed from rear tray

I have a Canon Pixma MX892 and use both the cassette and rear tray for paper feeding frequently. This morning it started to not print from the rear tray, even though I selected it in the printing properties. The only way it will print from the rear is if I change it in the device settings directly on the printer, but then it won't print from the cassette anymore. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Canon IP4600 won't feed from rear tray.

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.

SOURCE: Can't print business cards. Won't feed from rear tray.

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.

Canon pixma mx892 front door flap broke - was printing but now I get lots of clicking noises and then a message telling me to power off. The rear paper tray does work but lots of clicking.


What's the error message? Did it give you an error number?

My first thought: That printer detects if the front door is fully open, and if it's not, it gives you an error message and makes you turn it off and on. So look at the hinges where the door was connected and see if you can see the switch that tells the printer whether the door is open. Then figure out how to move that switch to the "open" position.

I hate that front door.

How do you get the cannon pixma mg8120 to print using the rear paper feed? should I lay in the paper with the print facing me?


The printer automatically chooses the back tray when you specify in your printer setting that you are printing a photo. You can also tell the printer that you want it to print using the tray setting specifically. You do this by going into your printer setup. Find the tab or button that says page setup. From here, you can specify the source for the printer whether is the cassette or the tray. As for the paper, the print faces back (away from you).

I am getting a "fax output error - cassette." It


Hi,

Pretty sure your paper tray button is set to get paper from the bottom paper cassette which is the tray that slides into the bottom of the printer.

If you switch the paper tray selection button* to use the rear feed tray you'll probably find it will print faxes successfully or you can put paper in the cassette tray...



*The paper tray selection button is just under (and slightly right of) the "Memory Card" button and has an icon image of the printer with two LED's (top and bottom). These lights indicate which of the trays is currently selected...


Hope that helps.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.


We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
Phenomenon
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.

Most of those have a button marked feed switch and a picture with a LED that either shows rear or bottom tray. You need to select the right tray on the printer panel.
