    Thanks I had already tried that to no avail. The machine is actually a Pixma IP4300 but I think they are similar.

When you insert a new stack of paper, don't forget to loosen the pages by flipping pages with your thumb on the upper and lower edges which loosens and separates the individual pages. Static electricity will also cause them to stick together. if this doesn't work, the rubber rollers that pickup the paper will wear out and get smooth and shiny, you can use rubber rejuvenator (Circuit City Sources) rejuvenate the rubber will fix that problem .do not use alcohol as it will eventually dry and crack the rubber. Good luck

Paper feeder grabs several pieces of paper at once


The spot in which the paper is fed into could have a fence/blocker. Use wood or a little hunk of aluminum to only allow 1 sheet. You could get fandy and use a rod that could also be mounted on the font.Be crea8tive and good luck.

Why does it print with streaks through the pictures even when ive done the cleaning method a million times?


I've had that problem and running the special blue sheet that comes with the paper pack through the printer seems to work. I've had to run the blue sheet through before each printout for a while, but the problem seems to have gone away - I guess it finally got cleaned out. It also seemed like running the blue sheet through after not using the printer for several weeks was a good idea before printing. When I get a new pack of paper, I run the blue sheet through as instructed. Instead of throwing the sheet away, I store it on top of the blank sheets inside the printer. That way I can use it again if needed.

Frequent Paper Jams in Brother HL-2140


Every 120,000 pages, the paper feed rollers, fuser, transfer roller, and OPC belt cartridge should be replaced, usually by a trained techncian.
Fuser and OPC belt units are customer-replacable.

The multiple feeding of the paper into the printer is due to a worn paper separation pad. part no. LM0711001. If the machine is picking up the paper okay and the jams occur solely from multiple sheet feeding, then this part is probably all you will need. The steps required to access and remove & replace the separation pad unfortunately is about 10 steps. Better consult a tech.

It grabs several sheets of paper at one time


This is most likely a paper problem, the paper is basically sticking to the next sheet, Ensure the paper is stored in a cool dry place helps, dont load the paper with more than what you need for a couple of days and when loading the paper flick the pages to allow air between the pages
If this dosnt work try a different brand of paper

My printer pull up several sheets of paper instead of one


You could try to clean the separator pad under the roller and ensure that the paper is placed correctly in the printer.. If this doesn't work, replace the printer, sad but true...

Take a wet cloth and clean the front grabbing roller by rotating roller on the wet cloth. You may have to do several times and after printer has not been used for a while.

My Canon MF3240 picks up too much paper and causes a paper jam every time I print.


If the automatic document feeder picks up multiple pages instead of single sheets, the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder needs to be cleaned.

Paper feed


Fixing paper feed problems
  • Ifthe printer is not picking up paper, check to see if there is paper inthe IN tray. If there is not, load paper into the IN tray and press thec00153917.jpg RESUME button.
  • Do not load more than 100 sheets of 20-pound paper in the IN tray. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38 inches.
  • Use the same type paper in the paper tray when you are printing.
  • Makesure that the paper width adjuster is against the left side of thestack but is not blocking the stack. Push in the paper length adjusterto make sure that the paper is fully seated in the printer. Do not pushso hard that the paper buckles.
  • Do not use paper, envelopes, or cards that are torn, buckled, have curled edges, or do not lie flat.
  • Ifusing the IN tray to load several envelopes, push the paper lengthadjuster toward the envelopes until it stops. Do not bend the envelopes.
  • Load only one envelope at a time in the single-sheet input tray and be sure that it is inserted fully into the slot.
  • Use envelopes with square flaps instead of triangular flaps, or tuck the flaps inside the envelopes.
  • Ifthe printer's paper feed rollers become covered with debris (dust orpaper fibers), clean the rollers with a soft cloth dampened with water.
  • Ifthe paper loads unevenly in the printer, one or more of the rollers onthe rear access door is missing. Remove the rear access door and checkto see if all six rollers in the door are present. If any are missing,the door assembly needs to be replaced. This is a customer replaceablepart, number C4557-60076.
  • Ifthe printer does not drop any paper from the wings to the OUT tray,remove the excess paper. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38inches.
  • Ifthe printer is sending more than a single sheet through at one time,remove the paper from the IN tray and separate any sheets that arestuck together. Reload the paper in the IN tray.
  • Ifthe printer is not ejecting paper, then turn off the printer. If yourcomputer is turned on, turn it off. Then, turn on the computer. Wait afew seconds. Turn on the printer.
