Loading cut sheets

My Canon ipf700 refuses to accept a cut sheet load - keeps giving me a "leading edge" error no matter how many times I try to load, align, re-align the paper. What gives?

Re: Loading cut sheets

Try to check the paper media set on the plotter (roll/plain paper). It usually happens if paper media is not the same with the plotter setting. To change it, unload the paper, press the media button on the printer to the right media and load the paper again. It should work now.

Paper not feeding properly

Follow these steps to reload paper:

  1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

  2. Fan the stack to make sure the sheets are separated.

  3. Open the paper support and pull up the extension.

  4. Extend the output tray.


  5. Flip the feeder guard forward. Squeeze the edge guide and slide it left.


  6. Insert paper, printable side up and short edge first, against the right side and beneath the tab.


    You can load up to 100 sheets of 20 lb plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo paper.

  7. Slide the edge guide to the edge of the paper, but not too tightly.


    Follow these guidelines when loading paper:

    • Do not load paper above the arrow on the edge guide.

    • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

    • If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin.

    • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

    • Load the printable side face-up. It's often brighter or whiter than the other side.

    • Load letterhead or preprinted paper top edge first.

    • If you experience paper feeding problems, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If you're using special paper, check the package for special loading instructions.
Follow these steps to reload paper in the Automatic Document Feeder:

  1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

  2. Tap the originals on a flat surface to even the edges.

  3. Move the edge guides outward.


  4. Insert the originals face-up. You can load up to 30 letter-size sheets at a time. If you load legal-size sheets, insert only 10 sheets at a time. Make sure the originals are not creased or folded and do not have tape, staples, or other materials that could obstruct the feeder.


  5. Slide the edge guides against the originals.

first, make sure you the paper correctly to avoid paper jam.
Single Sheets 1. Open the paper support and raise the extension. 2. Place your paper short edge first against the right edge of the feeder, under the tab, with the printable (whiter or glossier) side up. If you are loading multiple sheets, fan the stack of paper before loading it to prevent paper jams. Note: Don’t load paper above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide. Some special papers can be loaded only one sheet at a time. Slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure it is snug, but not so tight that the paper is bent. (For letter- or A4-size paper, you may not need to move the edge guide over.) paper.4.2.1.jpg 4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension. You should also follow these guidelines:Always load the short edge first, even when you’re printing landscape-oriented pictures. • When using special papers, check the paper package for additional instructions.

if you loaded the paper, it jammed again, remove the paper and tried to print, still the same, its a hardware issue, alraedy, the printers roller is broken

My canon Pixma MP160 feeds too many sheets at one time. I have cleaned the rollers. It was printing beautifully not five minutes ago.

I recommend fanning your paper. Take the stack of paper from your input tray or feeder. Fan it like you would a deck of playing cards. This may help keep the leading edges of improperly cut paper from meshing to each other, resulting in feeding more than one sheet.

Paper won't load and printer is reporting an E2 error code. The paper seems to be loading only on one side or edge... Can this be fixed? I have tried resetting the printer and turning it off and on again.

There is some object who block paper in sheet feeder.Look inside sheet feeder using flashlight and try to find the object.The bad think is in most case the object who block the paper is in under the withe rollers and you need to disassembly the hole printer to find it.

Can't allign the paper.

make sure that the paper roll is pushed all the way down on the rod and the piece that you put on it is fitted snuggly against the roll. When you pull the paper through the feeder pull it about 2-3 feet outward and it should align.
