Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Feed switch unresponsive

Occasionally the printer feed switch will not be changed from Auto paper feed to cassette feed. Turning the machine on and off will not work - even when cassette feed is selected, the auto sheet feeder takes over.
Can you help?
Many thanks

Your case seems the cassette feed unit can not detected by cassette unit sensor which locate around the paper input roller area.you need to check
1) the cassette push in the well position which can touch the sensor well egnough
2) find out this sensor and adjust the sensor sdander position (more sensitive).

My MF5770 display alternates between "Change papersize" and "Check papersize" and will not print. Turning off does not solve the issue, nor does going thru' the menu to change...


You have to check both trays, the cassette and the manual feed:
The Cassette:
Remove the paper tray and inspect everything.. remove the paper, move all of the paper guides and make sure they all lock into place where they should (LTR, LGL, etc)
if the paper size guides are broken/damaged then the machine may not be able to correctly tell the size.

The Manual Feed:
Open up the front door, remove the toner and check the area around the manual feed. You're looking for the flag that tells the machine there's paper in the MFT. If this is stuck it's possible it's incorrectly trying to pull from there.

The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't


1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

Pull out the extension completely.

Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

WILL FEED PLAIN WHITE PAPER BUT WILL NOT FEED PHOTO PAPER


Follow the steps:
•1
Turn on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Auto Sheet Feeder indicator light turns on.
•2
Pull up on the paper sheet feeder on the top and back of the printer and slide out the paper support.
•3
Take a stack of no more than 10 pieces of photo paper and flatten the corners, if they are curled. Curled corners may cause jams within the printer.
•4
Place the paper in the paper sheet feeder with the printable side of the paper facing up. The printable side of photo paper is the shiny or whiter side of the paper.
•5
Print your documents as needed.

Paper Cassette :

•1
Switch on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Cassette indicator light turns on.
•2
Pull on the cassette on the bottom of the printer to slide it out of the printer.
•3
Flatten the corners of a stack of no more than 10 sheets of photo paper if the corners are curled. The paper may become jammed in the printer if the corners are curled.
•4
Place the stack of paper in the cassette so the paper is touching the right side and the printing side of the paper is facing down. Adjust the plastic paper guides so they touch the paper. The paper stack guides help facilitate the paper moving into the printer.
•5
Slide the cassette back into the bottom of the printer. The printer is ready for printing.

Why doesn't paper feed after "print" instruction? Printer merely makes a mechanical noise and states "paper out" condition.


Hello.

There are lots of reasons why this would happen:

Foreign object (could be very tiny)

Any power lights flashing ?

Paper feed rollers may need cleaning - try (from Canon Support):

1. Ensure that the printer is turned on. If any paper is loaded in the printer, remove it.

2. Select which roller to clean, the auto sheet feeder's or cassette's, by pressing the <Paper Feed> switch on the printer.

3. Hold down the <Resume/Cancel> button; when the Power lamp flashes green three times, release the button. The paper feed roller will rotate as it cleans itself.

4.. Repeat step 3 twice.


5. Load three or more of A4 or letter sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder or cassette, as selected in step 2.


6. Repeat step 3. The paper that is loaded in the printer will be fed through the printer and ejected.


7. If printing problems persist, repeat step 6 up to three times.

Could be a hardware error and the printer would need servicing - still under warranty ?? If so, return to Canon for repair or replacement.

Hope this helps.

Machine flashing load paper message even though paper is loaded


Hi ...

Most of the time this problem comes when the paper is not loaded correctly. Follow the below instructions to load papers to the cassette and I am sure this will resolve your problem. I will keep monitoring your responce and if required, i'll look for a work arround.

Follow this procedure to load paper / envelope in the cassette:
  1. Pull out the cassette from the machine.

    p_ch03_070_e.jpg

  2. Remove the cover from the cassette.

  3. Fan out the sheets of paper so that they do not stick together.

  4. Align the edges of the paper.

    05sj00149_01.jpg

  5. If the cassette is not yet extended, use your thumb to press the tab (indicated by the pink circular outline) and release the latch.

  6. After the latch is released, remove your thumb from the tab. Then extend the cassette until a click is heard.

    05sj00149_02.jpg

  7. Load paper on the upper-right corner of the cassette with the print side facing down.

    Note:
    * Since the Credit Card sized paper, Canon Photo Stickers, and Legal sized paper cannot be fed from the cassette, load them in the auto sheet feeder (ASF).
    * When loading A5 or larger sized paper (nonstandard-size paper: 203mm / 8inches or more in length), extend the cassette by pinching the tab.


  8. Grasp the paper guide (A) and align it to the long edge of the envelope stack (2). Align the front edge of the paper stack in the same way (3).

  9. Close the lid and push the cassette all the way into the printer.

  10. Press the <Open> button and pull out the extension completely.

  11. Press the <Feed Switch> button to turn on the Cassette light.

Loading on envelopes

  3. If the edges of the envelope are inflated or are curling, place the envelope on a flat surface. With a pen, press down while moving it from the center toward the edges of the envelope.

  4. Ensure that no curl or puff exceeds 1/8 in. (3 mm).

  5. Load envelopes in the cassette with the print side facing down and the flap towards the left.

Canon Pixma MX850 says it's out of paper when there is paper


The feed switch changes the paper feed from rear feed to tray feed (paper tray is under the output bin). If you have paper in the rear feed, the green light should be on top of the printer icon left of the feed switch. If you have paper in the tray, the light should be on the bottom of the printer icon.
