Printer Canon LBP3300, When was printer it show "Load custom paper in manual feed slot". Have try to slot manual feed but also cant work. Please help to solve this problem. thanks

Load Legal paper in Cassette 1.
If you want to print using only one piece of paper currently loaded in the Manual Feed Slot, click [Resolve Error].
If you want to feed paper from the cassettes, remove the loaded paper from the Manual Feed Slot.

If it keep saying paper jam Then it maybe just that you may not see any paper in it but it only takes a very small bit of paper that stopping it or I would take a closer look inside, you may have had a paper jam before and it has left a small nit inside. All Best: Pineworks

Prints but not what you want to print

go to canon us support product menu printers/ip/1600/ downloads and driver. This will give you the software for your printer. I'm assuming your using xp as this is required. If your on windows 7 that os should recognize your ip 1600 and install the drivers itself.

I think that if you use the bottom tray to load the paper, you can use the different sizes of paper to print. Make sure to click the second button inside the lid that shows the direction the paper is fed into the printer. hope this helps!

Canon pixma ip 8500 won't feed paper

I have discovered that my problem was a one inch nail which had at some time been dropped into the paper feed slot. It could not be seen from the outside of the printer and was only discovered when I removed the side trim and top cover. When closely inspecting the nylon roller system that feeds the paper out, I saw a tiny piece of metal that looked out of place. Further probing then loosened the nail back to the paper input area.
My printer is now back in full operating condition after spending a couple of careful hours finding out how to remove the trim.
A well worth while exercise in my case.
