Re: copier wont print

Your unit is fine. Check the paper setting in your word processor and you will find that you are selecting either: (1) special paper type or (2) special paper size.

We have a Canon Image Runner 3235 that is hooked up to a network. Every time we try to send more than one document to print off we get the error message to load paper and it doesn't need any paper. ...

if the message add paper related with specific paper size i.e. add A4 paper in drawer, first you need to check is the paper senzor in drawer set to correct paper size - it is blue circle with markins of paper size. Second thing under printer driver properties on PC check if the correct paper size is choosen.

Hope that helps!

Printer showing error message ...."printing

This means that your machine has received a print job that is teling it to print on paper that is loaded or supposed to be loaded in the bypass feed tray. You will either need to delete the print job using the operation panel or simple load some letter size paper in the bypass tray over on the right side of the machine.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Our customer has a Canon Laser fax L800, Error message of Jammed paper displays, despite the fact that there is no paper jammed in the machine, paper path looks ok. Any ideas !!

Is it a jam or an add paper message (same light)? Sometimes you have to press the start button after you add paper on this machine.

Failed to print

At the head you said 'paper thickness position'and then you seems to have ignored that and did all the other things. Is there an adjustment for paper thickness, a lever perhaps. It does seem to be with the paper feed or paper presence detection. Take a look around, is there something stuck in the paper feed track? Can you have pass a piece of paper through without it rucking up? Do these things see what happens Take a look also at
