Multipass F50 Check Paper Size alarm


After I turn on the printer and print the first page I get a "Check Paper Size" alarm. I can't get it to stop. I have tried resizing in the menu and by moveing the paper tary slider, but had no luck.


Any thoughts that might help?

My Canon Multipass F50 has a "check printer" error and won't print. The ink cartridges will not move when you open the door (as if to replace). It won't even turn off to cycle it to clear the error,

I had a similar problem. Go to this page and try the codes they suggest to reset the count for the waste tanks. Good luck.

Have a Canon F50 Multipass. The alarm light is

Attempt to re-surface any replaceable rollers with a brillo or Scotch Bright pad ONLY if you are unable to locate replacement rollers. This will reduce the life of the rollers further and can permanently render them defective

Any rollers in the paper path and in the tray area(s) should have texture and should not be glossy or completely smooth with the exception of hard-plastic rollers used only as guides.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Canon MultiPASS F50 won't copy but will scan

Does the copy function work if you place the document to be copied on the platen (open the cover and lay it on the glass)? If so, check the area to the left of the platen. There should be a strip of glass with a clear plastic cover over it. This area is used for scanning when feeding paper through the automatic document feeder (ADF) from the top. This area must be clean. If this area is clean and clear, it's possible that the scanner element (below the glass) is no longer going all the way to the left when using the ADF. This would be a problem that would require servicing.
