Look for a paper jam in the front and the back of the printer. open the compartments and take a look. if all is clear unplug the printer and then plug it back in. this will reset it. good luck.

How to load envelopes in a canon mg3250 printer


Hi
Please find below a fairly comprehensive guide to using envelopes on your machine
The address is automatically rotated and printed according to the envelope's direction by specifying with the printer driver properly.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif You can only print on envelopes with the computer.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Do not use the following envelopes. They could jam in the machine or cause the machine to malfunction.
- Envelopes with an embossed or treated surface
- Envelopes with a double flap
- Envelopes whose gummed flaps are already moistened and adhesive Prepare envelopes.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image002.gif Press down on all four corners and edges of the envelopes to flatten them.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image002.gif If the envelopes are curled, hold the opposite corners and gently twist them in the opposite direction.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image002.gif If the corner of the envelope flap is folded, flatten it.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image002.gif Use a pen to press the leading edge in the inserting direction flat and sharpen the crease.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif The envelopes may jam in the machine if they are not flat or the edges are not aligned. Make sure that no curl or puff exceeds 0.1 inches (3 mm). Load envelopes.
(1) Open the front cover gently, and extend the paper support.
(2) Use the right paper guide (A) to slide both paper guides all the way out.
(3) Load the envelopes in the center of the front tray WITH THE ADDRESS SIDE FACING DOWN.
The folded flap of the envelope will be faced up on the left side.
Push the envelopes all the way to the back of the front tray.
Up to 5 envelopes can be loaded at once.
(4) Slide the right paper guide (A) to align the paper guides with both sides of the envelopes.
Do not slide the paper guides too hard against the envelopes. The envelopes may not be fed properly.
Do not overload envelopes by stacking until the top of the stack touches the paper guides. (5) Open the output tray extension.
Open the paper output tray.and extend the paper output support.
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Be sure to open the paper output tray when printing. If not open, the machine cannot start printing. After loading envelopes
c:\users\mike\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image003.gif Select the size and type of the loaded envelopes on the print settings screen of the printer driver. You may find it easier to download the manual from here

How do I print envelopes?


In the lower tray, remove the paper.
Adjust the side paper holders to the width of the envelope.
Envelope should be face side or print side facing down.
Usually have to load one at a time to avoid jam.
When finished, reverse the process to normal paper.

I have a Pixma MX870 and I can't find out from the manual or anywhere online how to print envelopes. Please help! Is it anywhere in the manual? Pat Heer


You have to use the top rear tray to load envelopes for printing.
Open the Paper Support, raise and tip it back.
Slide the paper guides to open and load the envelopes in the middle.
The envelopes are place with the address side facing up
and the flap facing down on the left side.
Slide the paper guides until they just touch the envelopes.
You have to set the printer driver.
Select Envelope in Commonly Used Setting or Media Type.
Select DL Env. or #10 in the Envelope Size Setting
Select Landscape in Orientation.
You can load up to 10 envelopes.

Load the envelope against the right side of the back paper tray.
Load with the address side facing UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left.
Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope.
Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right, return to the left after finishing printing.
The Paper Thickness Lever is located inside where the paper come out of printing.
Specify the settingin the printer driver.
Select Envelope in Media Type
Select DL Env. or #10 Env.
Select Landscape in Orientation.

My Canon MP530 indicates that I have a paper jam. There is no paper jam - I have checked and re-checked and turned it off and on several times and it is still reading that there is a paper jam. How do I...


Hello there You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, 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 cardstock 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.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Are you tring to print on a regular #10 or #6 size envelopes? And are you tring to more then just 1 to 10 or more? Did you try to select the manual by-pass tray in word? You might get lucky and get a few correctly. There is a optional paper tray made for envelopes only that would replace one of your trays in the copeir. You may have to get it from a copier supplier. It may have to be ordered or try to find a used one on the web. That would be the best way to print envelopes in any amount. Also you may need to replace you paper pick-up & paper feed & paper sepperation rollers more often with that tray..

I have called canon with this problem more than once and they keep telling me that I am using a "paper" that is not supported. I finally gave up and ended up telling them that I am now going to use my cheap HP printer because it can do what it's suppose to.
