Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

My printer is not taking the paper and is saying that the tray is empty. I can hear the mechanism making a sound as though it is going to take the paper but nothing actually moves to do it. It's as if something is moving under the tray but the actual mechanism that pushes the paper into the wheels is not moving. After the attempt it just tells me that there is no paper in the tray. Is it a goner?

Try the feed switch first, the feed switch selects either the top feeder or the cassette under the printer. If it is set for the wrong one you get that error.

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.

Brother hl 4040cn will not load paper from tray loud clicking noise coming from paper tray on dislplay it says no paper


Remove main tray. Check adjustable paper back stop. If the backstop is set so that the paper sit too tightly in the tray....it will prevent the spring loaded front portion of the tray to lift up allow paper to contact the pickup roller. The clicking sound you hear is the paper lift mechanism trying to push up the paper. Arrange both backstop and sidestops to allow some movement of paper in tray.

Paper in tray but message says paper tray empty


HP officejets are notorious for problems with paper feeding...

Try the solutions (ignoring the ones about tray #2) from this solution... They're all the same sort of printer feed mechanism.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t878735-printing_error

... also something I noted with the K850 (the earlier model to the K8600).. some papers are less likely to be picked up than others.

I had to get some cheap A3 paper for that unit which worked better than Xerox branded, higher quality photocopier stuff. Sounds strange but if it works...

Hope that lot helps.

Refusing to take paper


Someone suggested to empty the gray toner waste container located on the left side of the printer next to the cartridges. Be careful when emptying this as toner can make a real mess. Clean up with toilet paper or paper towel - not water!

Easy fix and this fixed mine like a charm. No need to send the unit in!

HP laserjet 8000 tray 2 not empty


Do you hear the paper "drop" when you pull out the paper tray. If not, it could be a lift motor

You will have to pull the Paper Input Unit to repair it.

Small items are not available for us to purchase.

If you can't fix, you need a new unit. About $400.00

Its saying the paper tray is empty even though there is paper


the problem is with the paper sesor in the paper tray. It must
be under the tray lift mechanism.
This is located in the right front part of the paper tray.

Brother MFC - 7420: Paper will not feed!


Does it make the same sound if you feed the single sheet through the bypass with the paper drawer removed? I hate to say it, but your printer's paper feed mechanism may need replaced. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/AskUs/default.aspx and ask Brother to diagnose this one; I think they'll confer with me and should be able to point you to a nearby Brother-authorized repair center. Let me know what happens!
