Question about Canon imageCLASS MF3240 All-In-One Laser Printer
Changed toner cartridge but still getting blank sheets.
Running vista on PC for over a year without any problems.
SOURCE: canon imageclass mf6530
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.

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.
