Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Saying no paper,. even when it's fully loaded & wont print.

I've recently bought only a couple of months or so ago (around June time) a Canon Pixma IP4300 & up until now I've been absolutely mega impressed with the printer ... however I used the printer the other day to print out a sheet, perfectly fine, switched it off as normal, closed everything etc..


It's not been touched since & today I'vwe just opened up the printer to print out a letter & it keeps saying "Paper Needed" .. even though I've put the paper in, it's just NOT grabbing it.


I'm really angry at the moment because I've only just bought this printer & I have important documents (I bought this printer for a reason) that have deadlines & things to meet & I don't have a lot of money either, so please help me as soon as possible in regards to this.


No matter what I do, it's just saying "No Paper" ... you can hear the noise of the printer moving when you press resume but it just says constantly "No Paper" all the time, it's not grabbing the paper.


Please get back to me as soon as possible about this as again, I'm really really upset about this right now, if anyone has any ideas that would be very much appreciated !!!!


Thanks in advance & hope to hear from you VERY soon.

    I'm having the same problem.

    I'm having the same problem here too. I've got two ip4200's and they both do it. One thing that works sometimes better than other times, is to clean the paper feed rollers. You do this by taking all paper out of the machine, then press the center button that flashes orange when somethings is wrong, and hold it until the power button flashes three times then release the button. The printer will act like it's feeding paper and it'll make a lot of noise and go through the cycle maybe ten times before it stops. The manual says to do that twice without any paper in it, then do it again with paper as many times as it takes before it feeds three sheets in a row without screwing up.

    I'm also only having problems with certain papers and not others. Good luck. Also, sometimes turning the printer off then back on will fix stuff too.

I just thought i had the same problem... but you know how there are 2 buttons on the front of the printer once the paper output tray is down? the bottom of those 2 i think switches it back and forth between paper feeding from the normal, top spot, and from somewhere else, so you can try pushing that button! worked for me!

It shouldn't dry up in such short a time, not unless you've done a lot of printing and the cartridge has run out. The seller is taking the mickey.

If you've replaced with canon cartridges and it still fails, insist on replacement or repair under warranty.

If repaired, check that it works properly before accepting it.

I need to know how to reset my printer, I 've cleaned the pads, but nothing... Thank you in advance...

Power down the Canon Pixma IP4300. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few moments.
Hold down both the "Resume" button and the "Power Button." When the printer begins to restart, release the "Resume" button but continue pressing "Power."
Push in the "Resume" button twice, then let go of both the buttons. In a moment, a green light flashes a few times.
Press the "Resume" button four times once the green flashing has finished.
Push the "Power" button again until the printer shuts down. Wait a few seconds, then press the power button again to restart the device. The Canon Pixma IP4300 will now function properly. for more information hope this helps you.

I seem to be having a similar problem with my cannon pixma 4300 as certain others, i have just recently replaced all the inks with " original" cannon inks and all of a sudden it refuses to print anything, it says that one of the inks is not working, ( Yellow) I remove it, replace it again and the light comes on but when the slide retracts the light seems to go off. any ideas would be great, this seems to be a fault i have read a few times.
