Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Cannon ip4300 does not recognize when printer output tray is open

When I try to print the yellow lite on the printer bgins to flash and a dialoge box appears that states:

- Document printing cannot be executed because printer output tray is closed. Open printer output tray. Printing will restart. -

It does this whether the tray is open or closed. In the past I have simply closed the tray and reopened it and it worked but not any more.

I just replaced all the ink cartrages recently I hope that I can get it to work otherwise I can't use them in any of the newer pixma models like the ip4500.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated - m.

The micro switch on the door may not be working. You need to fix it or replace.

Canon Pixma i4300. Front output paper tray pounced on by pet cat. Closed it up and opened it again When I try to print I get this message: "Document printing cannot be executed because the paper...


If you can remove the tray - have a look at it and it should come out without much force by pressing on the sides. If it comes out you may see the sensor inside that maybe is bent up and is not registering that the tray is open. If you see it you can bend it back down. You can also shoot canned air(with the tray in the out position of removed from the machine) and a piece of debris may come out. Use short squirts or the can gets very cold. All the office supply places and computer stores sell the cans of compressed air.

If none of the above helps, you can always communicate directly with Cannon at:

FLASHING ORANGE LIGHT ERROR MESSAGES


Try counting the number of orange flashes.
* two flashes means you’re out of paper or the paper is not feeding correctly.
* three flashes means there is a paper Jam or the output tray is closed.
* four flashes means the ink tank is empty
* five flashes means the print head is not installed correctly or not installed or is defective (before buying a new print head always try the cleaning instructions at the end of this post first.)
* six flashes means the inner cover is open or not closed properly.
* seven flashes means you counted wrong.....
* eight flashes means the waste ink absorber is almost full or full.
* nine flashes mean that a digital camera or video that is connected is not compatible with the printer. If a specific amount of time lapses without getting a response from the digital camera or video camcorder this will happen.
* ten flashes means it can not print to both sides of the page
* eleven flashes means the automatic print head alignment failed. (this can be caused by low ink levels, ink tanks not being installed correctly, the print heads being clogged. It can also be caused by the paper output slot being exposed to a strong light source (Press the resume /cancel button and move the printer to a darker location and try to align the print head again.
* check to make sure the lock lever is correctly positioned (down)
If the above does not work, align the print head manually by opening the printer properties dialog box and clicking the maintenance tab and then select the print heal alignment button on the left side, second row down.

Canon ip4300 printer says paper output tray is closed. wont prin


Its a defective printer you have that cant get out of paper output tray is close or that the paper output tray is not properly placed into the printer.

Try to reseat the output tray and let me know. If it does not work, you may need to send printer to repairs.

This iP4300 Canon printer has never worked even once and I bought it in 2007. Canon just sent me a replacement yellow ink cartridge as the light has been off. When I go to try and print the test page, I...


Probably a shop repair... There's a small switch on that door that goes bad, I've had to replace several. The switch is hidden on the right hand side and can barely be seen thru an opening in the front. You have to remove the top cover to replace it. A cheap part, but still a nuissance.

How do I realign my hp photosmart c4480 printer?


To align the print cartridges from the HP Photosmart Software
1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.
2. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings.
3. In the Print Settings area, click Printer Toolbox.
NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog
box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click
Printer Services.
NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog
box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click the
Printer Services button.
The Printer Toolbox appears.
4. Click the Device Services tab.
5. Click Align the Print Cartridges.
When prompted, ensure plain white letter or A4 paper is loaded in the input tray, then
press the button next to OK.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.
The product prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
7. Load the page print side down on the right front corner of the glass, and then press
the button next to OK to scan the page.
When the On button stops flashing, the alignment is complete and the page can be
removed. Recycle or discard the page.
