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.

The problem seems to come from comparability the software creating the document and the printer. I have the same problem in printing Spread Sheet of Microsoft Works. But I do not have problems in printing Word of Microsoft Works, Notepad, Word pad or PDF file.

Try cleaning the paper pick up roller. It is in the back of the tray. Use alcohol swabs or paper towel with rubbing alcohol on it.

This section explains the way to confirm the ink status and the procedure to replace ink tanks. When ink runs out or other errors occur, an error message is displayed on the LCD to inform you of the error. See "An Error Message Is Displayed on the LCD".
When printing from your computer, error messages appear on your computer screen as well.

NOTE

Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order indicated by the label on the Print Head Holder.
The machine will not print if an ink tank is installed in the incorrect position.
With the LCD of this MachineMake sure that the machine is turned on, then press the COPY, FAX, SCAN, or MEMORY CARD button. The current ink level will be displayed on the LCD for a few seconds.

Flashing quickly (at around 1-second intervals)

g0011496_tcm14-605383.png
The ink tank is inserted in the wrong position or it is empty. Ensure that the ink tank is in the correct position as directed by the label on the Print Head Holder. If the position is correct and its lamp flashes, it is empty. Replace it with a new one.
  • Ink lamp is off

The ink tank is not set properly or the function for detecting the remaining ink level is disabled.

If the ink tank is not set properly, press the g0009324_tcm14-605384.png mark on the ink tank until the tank clicks into place. If it does not click into place, make sure that the orange protective cap has been removed from the bottom of the ink tank.
If the function for detecting the remaining ink level is disabled, replace the ink tank with anew one. See "Replacing Ink Tanks".

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

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 :)))
