You can usually adjust the timer settings via the additional functions screen and select 'timer settings' and within there you can set 'return to standby timer' this will help you. The way to access this mode varies from machine to machine but if you have a key with a head and a star inside it, that will get you into the additional functions screen.

    Sorry, correction, the setting you need is called 'change auto clear time' and you can set 0-9. '0' leaves the auto clear off and 1-9 is the number of minutes before it auto clears. If you leave it off just press the reset key to clear manually. Just take heed that this will now retain any settings of the previous user including tray designation and special features!

Paper keeps jamming

I would look to see if the paper tray's Dials are set to the correct paper size as the paper in the paper tray.. LTR size set to LTR or LTR-R set to LTR-R if the dial is set to the wrong size the copier will jam all the time. Due to a timing issue, the copier thinks it has one size, but actually is try to make a copy on different size... Good Luck

We have 2 Canon ImageRunner 3320N copiers, but they are behaving differently when they are being used as a scanner. On one copier, when scanning a double sided paper it will automatically scan each side....

it is in the copier settings. one is actually set up to automaticly do doublesided copies as a default. while the other one is only set up to do singlesided copies

first while on the main copy screen change the setting how you want the copier setup ..... double sided printing, black and white, or how ever you want your defaults to be set up

then you will need to goto the additional functions button and under copy settings you will need scroll down to the second page.

there you will want to hit the standard setting button then click the store button, then click yes... now it will default to the double sided copies.....

hopefully this will fix the problem if not get back to me

Copyer problem

Go to the Control Panel, open Printers and Faxes, right click on the icon for your Canon, choose Properties.
Since the offered settings can differ from one model to another, you may have to look at any tabs shown to find the default setting for paper type but it will probably be under 'Advanced.' Check through the various settings and you should find settings influencing which paper size the printer should use and expect.
