My Canon started doing the exact same thing. I tried several mods but no luck. Seemed like it would **** hard when starting to print thus mis-aligning the paper. What I found that did worked and solved my problem was putting the printer into 'quiet' mode. In this mode it doesn't **** the paper in as fast and thus doesn't jam. I don't think it has jammed since the change and there's no really noticeable slow down in the output.

Pull up the properties dialog for the printer and go to the maintenance tab.Select 'quiet mode' button and then set it to always use quiet mode. Worked for me. Hope it works for you!

My printer says load paper then press start, I have paper in there and it wont print.

Dont know what you have already tried but first off verify that you are loading paper to the correct tray. Now this tray is going to have a switch located toward the feeder that tells the printer paper is loaded make sure the paper is back far enough but not to the point where you are forcing the paper into the feeder. If all this still doesnt work try reseting the printer and printing a test page. Hope this helps.

Printer wont print. It keeps saying PC Load Legal. The printer has paper in it.

Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.

More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.

If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.

Paper won't load. and Stops printing before it can start.

Try turning the paper around. Some times the corners of the paper get slightly bent and the paper wont load.If turning the paper around does not work, switch your paper. Hope this helps.
