    Double-click the printer icon on the lower-right side of the Windows desktop. The driver window for the printer will appear.

    Highlight the print job in the queue.

    Select Document and Cancel .

    If the job cancels, but the data light continues to blink indefinitely, power cycle the printer.
    If a power cycle does not clear the
    printer’s buffer, Cold Reset the printer by powering it down and then
    powering it back up while holding down the GO button.



    • Before you Cold Reset the printer, turn off the printer and remove network cards. A cold reset will delete the configuration on a network card if it is left in the printer.

    Uninstall the driver file of your printer completely and install it with latest updates from the website .
    Since you are getting old request to print . There seems to be problem with the command so reinstall the driver file once again .
    Also mention your printer model ?


  • SAM ANDERSON Mar 11, 2009

    You can uninstall by start -> control panel -> add or remove program ->printer model will be displayed (samsung ,hp,lexmark ) . click it there will be option remove . Click remove to uninstall it completely .

    This is for XP operating system .

    If you have different operating system mention it . Also mention about the model of your printer to find latest driver for it .


  • SAM ANDERSON Mar 11, 2009

    Open Printer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.

    Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete

    You can get driver file from the link below

    Canon driver

Red light flashes, screen says "load correct paper: A4." The paper is alreay loaded. I cannot print.


When <LOAD CORRECT PAPER> appears on the display, the size of the paper in the paper cassette or multipurpose tray is different from that of the paper specified in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>. You need to load the correct size paper or change the paper size in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>.
Check if the size of paper loaded in the paper cassette or multi-purpose tray meets the paper setting specified in the machine.

check the following:
1. The paper size specified on the printer driver screen
2. Paper loaded in the machine
3. The paper size set in <PAPER SIZE> for <CASSETTE> or <MP TRAY>

The red light is on and appear this message: LOAD CORRECT PAPER CASSETTE. What should I do?


Hello,
if this happens when you send the print job, you need to choose correct paper size under the printer properties on your pc.

Go to the printers, choose your mf4150, right click and properties, under tab preference, under page size choose correct one i.e. A4.

Turn MF off and back on and try again to print

On the Ip4300 the yellow light flashes at 10 times intervals. The printer does not responde to anything. Thanks Dave


This is from Canon's web site...

Ten flashes:The Cassette is not installed properly/Cannot perform duplex printing
  • When loading from the Cassette, install the Cassette properly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
  • When performing automatic duplex printing, the size of paper may not be compatible with automatic duplex printing. The sizes of media suitable for auto duplex printing are A3, Regal, 11" x 17" (Tabloid), B4, A4, Letter, 10" x 12", 8" x 10", B5, and A5". Make sure that the size of the paper loaded in the printer is correct. Pressing the RESUME/CANCEL button will eject the paper and restart printing from the front side of the next paper. The reverse side of the ejected sheet will not be printed.

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 :)))

I had same thing happen after a fresh Windows install. It was hard to figure out since it had been working fine until then, but luckily it is simple to fix. Open the Start Menu > Settings > Printers and Faxes folder. Then right-click on the Canon MF4100 Series printer and choose Printing Preferences. In there, change the Paper Size to Letter (instead of A4). You may also have to do this in the Print setup for whatever program you're using to print.
