Reason : the shutter of the laser is not opened by the cartridge. (I had same problem, and solved it)

Open the door and remove the toner. look inside and you will see in the upper part a rectangular window in the metal bar. This window is shut by a metal plate behind when the door is open. Try to raise it with a knife. This is the problem. Now, this shutter is here only for legal reasons (security to prevent the laser beam going out when door open, but when the door is opened the power is shut so...). Cut a piece of plastic just the width of the opening, fold it at angle in the form or an L, then place it on the left side of the opening, so that the shutter can no longer go down. A piece of scotch to fix it in place and you are done.

Now, if it works and you are grateful, I am interested in empty cartridges.If you have some tell me. Thanks.

SOURCE: copies are blank pages and doesn't indicate toner problem.

Bad lasrer shutter. There is a redesigned one going in warranty claim machines. the shutter can be removed but it breaks safty laws.

I don't think Vista is supported for this printer and if not doubt that it will be as Microsoft are bringing out a new OS to replace it.

All you have to do is open the left side cover (two screws on the front and two bigger ones on the back) and disconnect the black connector with four purple wires as shown on the picture:

Canon imageclass MF3240 and Vista - not working?


uninstall the printer and all of software. then down load the drivers and software and save them to your desktop. then disconnect your pc from the internet, disable your anti virus and fire wall, then run the install from your desk top. alot of anti virus software see's scanner drivers as virus like activity and will not allow them to be installed. all in one installs like this need to be done without anti virus software running. i think this will solve you problem ive solve it many times like this
