Letter not loaded in tray paper feed switch error when printing

Lately when I attempt to print a document from my CANON PIXMA MP780 printer, the above error appear in the printer tray and the documents won't print. All before the printer was printing. The paper tray was and still is full. I checked the printer cables to verify they were still secure from the computer to the printer and the USB cable that connect to the computer from the printer had come out. I put it back in securely and am still having this problem.

Please help me troubleshoot this issue. I have some important documents I need to print, but can not due to this issue. I don't know what else to do . I have tried everything I could think of to troubleshoot the issue, but the problem still isn't resolved. At this point, I am very frustrated and annoyed with this printer.

SOURCE: Dell 3100cn Printer will not print

I had to actually change the settings in Microsoft Word to resolve this problem.

If you go to page setup > paper source > there should be lists for "first page" and "other pages".

You can set this to "as per printer settings" and hopefully it should work.

SOURCE: "Off-line" error message

Go to control panel - printers. Right click your printer icon - select delete printer. Reinstall the software and drivers via CD supplied. May have to restart your computer when complete. Go back to control panel - select printers - select add a printer and follow the instructions. When finished print a test page.

SOURCE: canon pixma mp780 auto feed does not print

You probably need a new printhead, but that problem cann also be caused by the purge or cleaning station not working properly. If you do a cleaning cycle with no carts. and the little pads in the printhead come back with no ink on them then the purge is working and you need a new printhead.

Hi, My Canon MX310 all-in-one is only a couple of years old and lately broke down. The problem is it doesn't take the paper correctly. Shrink it at the start of printing and shows that there is not...


Hello,

My PIXMA 6000 has a paper tray on the bottom or else you can load the paper from above.

When the paper tray contains paper and is loaded it moves a switch that alerts the printer that there is paper available to the printer.

When loading paper from the feeder on the top of the printer there is a bar that kicks out from behind the paper that pushes the paper in to a roller on the other side. The roller grabs the paper and feeds it in to the printer. As the paper enters the printer a sensor detects it's presence.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.


We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
Phenomenon
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.

I have a canon pixma mp780 all in one printer. It keeps saying add paper but the paper tray is full.


Check the feed switch, you can put paper in the bottom tray or the top feeder and you press the feed switch to change from one to the other, when the rollers are dirty and paper doesn't pick up you also get that error.

HI we have a Canon Pixma 780 printer. We changed where the printer takes the paper from when printing to the back of the machine. We want to change it back to taking the paper internally as when you print...


First thing to check is that the paper guide at the back is set. I've seen so many printers (of all makes) where the guide is not set at all.
Put a stack 20 to 30 sheets in the rear paper tray. Make sure that the stack is snug up against the right hand side of the feed tray (as you look at it from the front).
Then, make sure that paper guide - the little light grey plastic sticky-up bit at the left hand side of the feed tray - is moved up snug to the stack of paper. It should touch the paper but not squeeze it. Now try printing.
That guide is what makes the paper stay straight. If it does not touch the paper then the paper will go out of line.
This applies to all makes of printer and all types of printer.

Mp780 - Paper attempts to feed and fails Message: Load paper


Your paper feed source is wrong .Go to the printers control panel and change the feed source.
If all you do is 8.5X11 you can go into the maintenance tab and choose it to automatically change paper trays by selectin auto continuous feed.Make sure paper is in both trays of the same type and size.You will hear the printer try and grab the paper three times then it will automatically switch to the next tray.

Printer not recognising that paper is loaded


Had this problem yesterday, then after downloading the manual you need to
switch feed (left hand side). There are two feeders in the rear and pull out tray
at front, very bottom.

Hope this helps !

Paper Feed


The problems are particularly frustrating if it's a Word 2007 document that you're trying to print. Open the document, go to the Page Layout tab, select Page Set Up > Paper and set your printer source to whichever tray you want. Apply to the whole document and voila !
