Initial Thoughts
The problem seems to be a fault in a paper feed sensor. This would explain the size mismatch, since these sensors are how the printer detects the paper size. And, it would explain why printing starts two-thirds down the page, since these sensors are also used in timing where on the page to start printing.

However, a document passes through three software applications before it actually prints. And, any one of them could be causing the paper size mismatch.

Insight
Although paper sensors are usually low-tech and easy to remedy, they are often difficult to find and can sometimes be difficult to get to. Most such sensors are simple switches (toggles) and others are optical sensors that work like the electric eye of a garage door opening system. And, the solution may be as simple as a tiny piece of paper stuck on one of them. However, sensors such as these are quite numerous on this printer and can be hidden anywhere.

The three software applications I referred to are:

1. The document rendering application, such as Adobe Reader, Microsoft Word, etc.

2. The print writer. This is part of the device driver software package. It breaks up a print request and converts it to a standard format that the printer will always recognize and manages transmission of each page to the system spooler or directly to the printer.

3. The printer firmware. I'm not sure of everything this does related to the print stream. But, part of it must manage resources, such as ensuring the right size paper is being fed.

Load mp feader a4


Please determine what size you are trying to print (A4, Letter, Legal, etc.). The printer is requesting A4 sized paper in the maunal paper feeder becuase either you selected manual feed or the setting for the default try (usually tray 1) is not set to the correct paper size. In your case, make sure the green slide adjustment on tray 1 is set to A4.

Paper size mismatch


Usualy the page size setup on the printer must be the same as the paper size in the printer properties of the printer driver.

In your printer preferences make sure about the paper sizes. If it's set to Letter (most of the time default settings) on the driver software and the source paper is set to A4 on the printer, you will get that error.

As long as the paper source from the feeding tray on the printer and the setting on the pc are the same it should be smooth sailing.4_24_2012_2_27_52_pm.jpg

If this is not the case, reinstall your software drivers or add some more simptoms.

We have a Canon Image Class MF3240 Copier/Fax/printer/scanner. We are receiving error A4-load proper paper. We are loading with 8 1/2 by 11 paper. What is this error telling me?


The problem is on the computer, not on the printer.

"A4" is a paper size, just like "Letter" and "Legal".

You probably have your software application, such as Excel, Word, etc., set to paper size = A4.

Do this in your program on the computer:
[File]
[Page Setup]
[Size] "8 1/2 x 11"

... and print your document again.

Paper size mismatch is appearing on the screen


if that is when your printing you have to check and be sure the paper tray size is set correctly. You press the machine status button and make sure, tray 1, 2 and the bypass are set to the proper size paper.

Load A4


A4 is for european size, if you are printing on a letter size this is a mismatched.
you need to change your files printer properties to A4 or letter size, or change your printer paper size.
better yet cancel this document and send it again , this time by checking the printer properties was set to your desired paper size

CANON MF4140 'LOAD CORRECT PAPER CASSETTE : LTR'


I had the same cr@p of the problem yesterday. The problem was not inthe paper. You have to do 2 simple things, from which one will solvethe problem.
first, download the latest drivers and install them.
And the more important thing, the problem occurred due to incorrectpaper format. Solution is very simple. Open MS word or somethingsimilar, file->print.. and before you print open Properties menu.There for the Output Size will be selected "Match Page Size". you don'twant that (i don't know why it doesn't work), but the solution ismanually select A4, or whatever your page size is.
And there it is... printer starts throwing pages out like crazy :)))
