Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

Can the Canon MX310 print on transparencies?

My mom has this printer/scanner and had heard she could not use it to print on plastic transparencies.  Do you know if this is true?
thanks, Katelyn Grimes

Manual does not mention Transparencies.
Manual states that It will print T-shirt transfers:

T-Shirt Transfers TR-301
This paper is used to create iron-on transfers. The image is printed inverted.
Paper Support Load Limit: 1 sheet
Paper Output Tray Load Limit:
We recommend that you remove the previously printed sheet from the Paper Output Tray before continuously printing to avoid blurs and discoloration.
Paper Thickness Lever: Right
Media Type:
Printer Driver Setting: T-Shirt Transfers

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How do i adjust heat settings in xerox 6110


If you tried to print on a transparency sheet for ink jet printers, in your laser printer, you could have damaged the heating rolls. The plastic could be molten on the roll and you won't be able to remove it without damaging the roll. As long as there is just a spec of plastic on the roll you will have paper jams. There should be transparency sheets for laser printers to, but always make sure you have those before using in a laser printer.

Can't print on transparency film


In order to print on transparency film from a HP8600 all you have to do is load the paper rough side down with the white border going into the tray toward the back of the printer so that you can not see it when you look into the paper tray. The HP 8600 will auto-adjust for the film, that is why you do not have the option to select transparency like you did in the HP 8500

Replaced black ink and now printer wont print black how do i run head cleaning etc


Check if the Ink nozzle is not blocked. Some Ink cartridge comes with a transparent cover that you have to remove manually before the installation. You can test if the nozzle is not blocked by touching it with a soft tissue. If the nozzle is not blocked, the black ink should stain the soft tissue.


I hope this helps you?

MY SCANNER WILL SCAN PRINTS BUT NOT TRANSPARANCIES THE SCANNING LIGHT WORKS ON PRINTS BUT NOT TRANNYS, ANY IDEAS PLEASE


Flatbed scanners that can scan prints and transparences had two light sources.
One for normal prints (ie reflective light source, the light shines from under the glass to the print/photo and reflects off this print/photo to the optical sensor).
On a scanner that can scan transparences there is a second light source in the lid that shines through the transparences pass the glass to the optical sensor. The light source under the glass is not used in this case.
The scanning software automatically selects the right source when you select to scan prints or transparences.

EPSON V500 trying to scan 2.25 x 6.5 transparancy


its possible they are right, But try puting acoulpe of sheets of plain white paper behind the transparency before copying as a buffer . The scanner is seeing the transparency reflected back causing distortion. with the paper blocking the reflection, it should scan perfectly

Canon Pixma iP90 - Jagged text and lines


The printer has a plastic band that runs from one side to the other. The print head has a sensor that passes over it each time it moves. The band is a little transparent and appears to have vertical lines in it. That needs to be cleaned. 
  1. Remove power from the printer, 
  2. Wipe it clean, 
  3. Move the head manually to other side to clean the other areas.
Hope this helps.

Transparency adaptor won't close


Remove the transparency adaptor from the scanner bed (unscrew the two smaller screws, then slide back and off) and then remove the glass (and plastic frame) of the transparency adapter (there are six screws).

By the hinge there is a small white plastic switch. Usually the transparency adaptor hits this when it's closed, letting your computer know that it is ready to scan. What I did, as bcvideo did, was take duct tape and firmly taped the switch to the side of the transparency adaptor, using several small strips of tape.

The scanner works well now. You may need/want to put something on top of the scanner if it does not fully close.
