Open the lid of your printer (as if you were changing ink tanks). When the carriage stops in the middle, the lever on the front of it (typically a light blue color) is the thickness lever being referred to.

Hi Where do I load the paper in my Canon MX310?


The MX310 is a straight through printer. So you put the paper in the rear tray after opening it. Pull out the paper support and adjust the lever for the paper thickness to match your paper specifications. The lever goes to the left unless printing envelopes and T-shirt transfers. Also pull out the paper output tray and set the output tray extension.

Align the 4 corners of the paper stack (if loading more than one sheet) and bend to uncurl the paper (if needed) before inserting in the rear tray. For photo paper and other pages with a print side and a back, place the pages with the print side facing up. Align the paper against the right side of the rear tray and then pinch the paper guide and slide it to the left side of the paper stack. Make sure to adjust the paper size to match in the computer's printer properties (paper size) or in the copy settings on the all-in-one before either printing or copying.

Specific directions and pictures are in the Quick Start Guide that is available as a PDF here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx310#BrochuresAndManuals .

I hope this helps.

I have Canon pixma MX310 and I just trying to set it up.I'm trying to print and there is message open paper out tray.What is that mean and how I can fix it


The printer will not print as long as the paper output tray is closed.
  1. Open the Paper Output Tray (2).
    Put your finger in the rounded indent beside the Paper Output Tray and open it gently.

  2. Open the Output Tray Extension (3).
    Open up and set the Output Tray Extension completely by pressing down the hollow on its front side.

  3. Adjust the position of the Paper Thickness Lever (4).
    Set it to the right when printing on envelopes or T-shirt transfers, and left when printing on any other type of paper.

I'm trying to set up my printer to my computer when setting up it ask what kind of printer i put canon but i do not see a screen for pixma mx310 what do i put in??


Go to http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=15603

and download the correct driver for your printer. Run the driver install download and write down where it installs the software. When the installer asks for driver location, enter or browse to the location you wrote down. Click on the .inf file in that folder and it should install your printer. These instructions apply to Windows XP and Vista, NOT any Mac OS.

Cannot receive fax. It goes into memory. LCD reccomends new B-CRT regarding my Canon PIXMA MX310 printer . No problem sending fax,copying or printing.


B-CRT is just asking for a new black cartridge, fax will not print until it's replaced so you don't get a partial fax that you can't get back after printing.

Canon mx310 feeds paper w/out printing


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Ink smudge on envelope

The paper thickness lever is not on the front...it is on the floor of the "paper output tray" chamber. It is hard to see without directed light.

Refer to Loading Paper section of the Quick Start Guide....p 15 2 Prepare to load paper
(4) Adjust Paper Thickness Lever
(See diagram)

Or look at the "User's Guide on-screen manual" as directed by the Note on p. 17

I really had to search to find this lever while attempting to resolve my problem with a badly aligned printing head. I am going to have to buy a new printer. It definitely won't be a Canon due to the rip off cost of print cartridges.

Hope this is helpful.

Thickness lever


I just bought one of these printers and got the same message when trying to print from my digital camera... All you have to do is press the OK button on the printer!!! Don't feel too bad.. there is no documentation that explains this.. I only found this after I started frantically pressing all the buttons on the printer out of frustration.. Good one Canon.

The Paper Thickness Lever should be set to the left for normal/plain paper. This switch can be seen inside the unit in the area of the paper output tray.
